Atletico Madrid warmed up for the Europa League final by taking a big step towards securing second spot in LaLiga with a 1-0 success at Getafe.

Diego Simeone's men, who face Ligue 1 side Marseille on Wednesday, secured the three points thanks to Koke's eighth-minute strike and Jan Oblak's second-half penalty save from Faycal Fajr.

Victory at Coliseum Alfonso Perez moves Atletico six points ahead of third-placed Real Madrid ahead of their evening kick-off at home to Celta Vigo and means they need a point at home to Eibar next weekend to finish as runners-up.
