Atletico Madrid produced a fine performance to beat Sevilla 2-1 at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on Saturday night and stay in pole position for the last Champions League place.

Javier Aguirre´s side took the lead in the first half through Maxi Rodriguez´s deflected strike, but were pegged back shortly after the break when Diego Capel equalised for Sevilla.

However, Sergio Aguero quickly restored Atletico´s lead and the visitors held on for an important victory as Sevilla were reduced to 10 men following the dismissal of Enzo Maresca.
