Commentary

That's all for today, goodbye!
So Atletico have extended their winning streak in the league to 13 matches and will remain joint top of the table until tomorrow at least when both Sevilla and Barcelona next play. Valladolid remain in 12th position, but they should be happy with the performance that they put in today as they enjoyed the better spells in the game.
Atletico go joint top of LaLiga with that victory, but Valladolid will feel hard done by with that result. After coming back from 2-0 down at half-time, they pulled level before a late goal from Griezmann gave the away side the win.
90' + 5' FULL-TIME: REAL VALLADOLID 2-3 ATLETICO MADRID.
90' + 5' Griezmann tries to wrap up the win for Atletico in the final minute. Instead of running into the corner like his team-mates, he decides to move into the box from the left wing and hit his shot low, but Masip is in the right place to turn the ball away.
90' + 3' The play in midfield is very open now as Valladolid are trying to push forward and find an equaliser.
Rubén Alcaraz
Yellow Card
Real Valladolid
90' + 1' Alcaraz is shown the yellow card after catching Koke.
89' Thomas comes very close to makng it four! Griezmann touches it to him from the free-kick and he sets himself before he strikes the ball and the shot is just wide of the near post.

Borja Fernández
Míchel
Real Valladolid
86' Last change for Valladolid now as Michel is replaced Fernandez.
D. Verde
Óscar Plano
Real Valladolid
84' Plano comes off the field now to be replaced by Verde.
84' No penalty given! VAR have looked back at the claim but judged that it wasn't clear enough to be able to award a penalty.
82' The Valladolid players are incensed as they feel that the ball struck a hand when Nacho played his cross into the box, but the referee didn't see anything and VAR is being consulted.
A. Griezmann
Goal
Atlético Madrid
80' GRIEZMANN GIVES ATLETICO THE LEAD AGAIN! It was messy in the box as the Valladolid defenders threw their bodies on the line to try and prevent the goal and Griezmann is found on the edge of the six-yard box. His shot is hit low into the bottom corner. It's 3-2 to Atletico!
S. Savić
Assist
Atlético Madrid
80' The ball was played against Savic by Olivas and he did well to quickly touch it onto Griezmann, who was in a better position to get the goal.
Koke
Yellow Card
Atlético Madrid
78' Koke is the first Atletico player to be shown a yellow card after taking out Alcaraz.
77' Atletico have an opportunity to move the ball upfield now, but they're finding it hard to find a way through the Valladolid defence who are sitting back to prevent any chances.
L. Suárez
Toni Suárez
Real Valladolid
75' Gonzalez makes his first change of the game now as Villa is replaced by Suarez.
Gelson Martins
Á. Correa
Atlético Madrid
75' Simeone makes his last change of the game as Correa comes off to be replaced by Gelson.
74' Nacho puts a deep cross into the box from the left wing and Godin gets to it to clear it, but he can only find Nacho on the edge of the box. Yet he trips over the ball and it rolls out for a throw-in.
72' Griezmann's penalty in the first half means he has now scored scored seven goals in five league meetings with Valladolid, against no other team does he have a better record.
70' Atletico get into a great position in the box and Correa tries to play a throughball to Griezmann, but the forward is caught offside.
Vitolo
N. Kalinić
Atlético Madrid
69' The scorer of the first goal Kalinic is replaced by Vitolo.
67' Valladolid put two great crosses into the box in quick succession, from Keko and Plano, but nobody made a run into the box to get on the end of it and Atletico are able to clear the danger easily. 
65' Gonzalez is trying to calm his team down from the sidelines as their play is becoming a bit frantic as they now push forward in search of a goal that would give them the lead for the first time in the game.
Saúl
Own Goal
Atlético Madrid
63' VALLADOLID ARE LEVEL! It's another corner that gets them the goal as Unal gets his head to the ball at the far post and he puts it back into the crowd of players. It bounces off Saul's shins and there is nothing he can do as it bounces past Oblak and over the goal line. 2-2!
61' Valladolid have been awarded a free-kick in a good position on the right wing after Keko is caught with a high boot from Saul, but they can't find anyone in the box and it goes out for a corner.
T. Partey
Filipe Luis
Atlético Madrid
59' Luis pulls up as he tries to chase down the ball following the restart and he is quickly replaced by Thomas.
Míchel
Assist
Real Valladolid
57' Michel is the one to swing in the corner and it is inch perfect to find Calero in the crowd of players.
Fernando Calero
Goal
Real Valladolid
57' VALLADOLID HAVE A GOAL BACK! Another corner for the home side is met by Calero in the middle of the six-yard box. Oblak does get a hand to it, but he can't stop it from sneaking into the goal. 2-1!
56' Atletico are extremely sloppy in possession at the minute and have struggled to make a string of passes that would allow them to move out of their own half.
54' The home side are enjoying a good spell now as they win a succession of corners that Atletico just can't get clear. Alcaraz decides to have a go when the ball falls to him outside the box and he tries to curl it into the top corner, but it is high over the crossbar.
52' Savic almost scores an own goal after another great cross comes in from the right wing, and the defender stoops low to make contact with the ball and he forces an excellent save from Oblak as it's heading into the top right corner of the net.
50' Valladolid are not allowing the Atletico players to have any time on the ball as they try to win back possession so they can mount an attack.
48' UNAL COMES CLOSE AGAIN! Keko floats a wonderful cross into the six-yard box from the right wing and Unal gets his head to it and Oblak turns the shot away with his feet before it's cleared out for a corner.
46' Valladolid get the second half underway.
If Valladolid can make a quick start to the second half like they did the first and press forward with Nacho down the left wing, then they can create some chances that could trouble the Atletico defenders. The away side will be full of confidence now though, especially after scoring on the stroke of half-time, and if they continue to get into dangerous positions then they could easily add to their goal tally. 
Valladolid started the half the better team, but eventually Atletico grew into the game and created the better chances to take the lead through Kalinic and Griezmann's goals. Valladolid may feel a little hard done by after their quick start, and they did have a couple of good chances, but they just couldn't find the back of the net.
45' + 2' HALF-TIME: REAL VALLADOLID 0-2 ATLETICO MADRID.
A. Griezmann
Penalty Goal
Atlético Madrid
45' + 1' 2-0 ATLETICO! Griezmann takes a short run up to the spot and calmly hits the penalty with a lot of power into the top right corner of the net!
Kiko Olivas
Yellow Card
Real Valladolid
45' Yellow card is shown to Olivas for his handball that led to the penalty.
45' PENALTY FOR ATLETICO! The review clearly showed a handball from Olivas and the referee points to the spot much to the annoyance of the Valladolid players. 
44' Atletico come close again! Griezmann hit the shot from the edge of the box and it was on target before it was blocked and Masip got a hand to it. There are calls from Griezmann for handball and the referee is going to VAR to check his claims.
43' Valladolid are pushing forward with a bit more purpose as they chase a goal that would take them into half-time level.
41' Simeone is still looking slightly stressed on the sideline despite his team's lead as he paces in his technical area and urges his team to move forward.
39' Another great ball into the box from Nacho and this time he finds Unal in the centre of the box and he tries to just nudge it in the right direction but his shot is just wide of the far post.
38' Plano has a great chance to find an equaliser! The cross from the left wing bounced just before it reached him on the edge of the box, he hit the shot well, but it was just over the crossbar.
37' A poor ball from Masip goes straight to Rodrigo and he tries to play the ball to Griezmann quickly, but two Valladolid defenders crowd him out to win the ball back.
35' Atletico are happy to just play short passes among their defenders at the minute as they just calm down the tempo of the game after their goal.
33' Valladolid are still trying to play out from the back as they move the ball upfield, and the Atletico players are happy to let them do that as they sit back until the midfielders get possession.
31' The Atletico players are constantly trying to find Arias down the right side when they are moving forward, clearly thinking that he is their best chance to mount an attack.
29' Atletico look a lot more comfortable in possession now following the goal as they start to move the ball upfield quicker and don't allow the Valladolid players to get near them.
Toni Suárez
Yellow Card
Real Valladolid
27' Villa becomes the second Valladolid player to get a yellow card after a bad foul.
A. Griezmann
Assist
Atlético Madrid
26' Griezmann plays the ball to Kalinic as soon as he gets it to catch out the defenders. There was a question of offside, but he actually timed his run perfectly.
N. Kalinić
Goal
Atlético Madrid
26' KALINIC PUTS ATLETICO AHEAD! The away side had started to find a lot more joy going forward and he makes a great diagonal run across the box to meet the ball and hits his shot through Masip's legs to find the back of the net. 1-0 Atletico!
24' Koke takes the resulting free-kick, but his shot hits the wall. Griezmann gets a chance on the follow-up and his attempt is deflected and goes out for a corner.
Óscar Plano
Yellow Card
Real Valladolid
23' Plano is shown the first yellow card with a bad tackle on Correa just outside the 18-yard box.
21' Unal commits himself as he goes to win the ball back and he ends up taking Arias out to give away the free-kick and end the Valladolid attack.
20' Alcaraz decides to have a go on the volley from outside the box after the ball falls to him from the corner, and he hits the shot well, but Godin blocks and clears it away.
18' Plano almost gets on the end of a throughball played down the left wing, but Arias gets to it just before he does and he commits a foul as he tries to get around the defender.
16' Keko finds himself in some space down the right wing and delivers his cross low into the six-yard box, but there is no one at the near post to get a foot to the ball and Oblak gets down to collect it.
14' Atletico have struggled to get any meaningful possession so far in the game and every time they do get the chance to move forward, they give the ball away sloppily.
12' Another free-kick for Valladolid in a good position on the right wing. Keko swings the cross in and Unal comes very close to getting his head to it, but he just misses it and the ball bounces out.
10' Valladolid have got the ball back again now, and they are patiently trying to work their way upfield from defence, which Atletico are allowing them to do as they sit back.
8' Saul decides to have a go from a long way out as he cuts back and whips the ball in from the right wing, but it is an easy save for Masip to make.
7' Valladolid have a free-kick near the halfway line, and it is played sideways to Nacho who swings a ball into the right side of the box, but Oblak is quickly off his line to catch it before anyone can get close to it.
5' Whenever Atletico do get possession, Valladolid are quick to close the ball and try to find a way forward as they chase an early goal in the game.
3' Atletico have an early free-kick near the centre circle which is taken by Koke, and he gets the ball out to Correa, but his cross into the box is poor and is cleared easily by the Valladolid defence.
2' Valladolid are keeping possession well in the opening couple of minutes after winning the ball quickly after the kick-off.
1' Atletico gets us underway for the first half!
The players are out on the pitch now with kick-off just moments away.
Atletico have won their last three LaLiga trips to the Jose Zorrilla, scoring nine goals in total and keeping a clean sheet in all three games.
Diego Simeone makes four changes to the side that drew 0-0 with Club Brugge in the Champions League on Tuesday as Luis, Savic, Correa and Kalinic all come into the team to replace Lemar, Gelson, Thomas and Rubio.
Sergio Gonzalez was clearly happy with his team's performance at the weekend as he names an unchanged side to the one that beat Sociedad, and sticks with the same formation as well.
ATLETICO MADRID SUBS: Vitolo, Gelson Martins, Borja Garces, Juanfran, Thomas Partey, Antonio Adan, Francisco Montero.
ATLETICO MADRID XI (4-4-2): Jan Oblak; Filipe Luis, Diego Godin, Stefan Savic, Santiago Arias; Rodrigo, Saul Niguez, Angel Correa, Koke; Antoine Griezmann, Nikola Kalinic.
REAL VALLADOLID SUBS: Yoel Rodriguez, Javi Moyano, Leo Suarez, Borja Fernandez, Daniele Verde, Moises Delgado, Anuar Mohamed.
REAL VALLADOLID XI (4-4-2): Jordi Masip; Antonio, Fernando Calero, Kiko Olivas, Nacho; Michel, Toni Villa, Ruben Alcaraz, Keko; Oscar Plano, Enes Unal.
Valladolid come into this game having only won one of their last five games in the league (D1 L3), but that victory did come in their last outing when they beat Real Sociedad 2-1 last weekend. Atletico, however, are in great form. They are on a 11-match unbeaten streak in all competitions (W7 D4), a run which started back in October.
Hello and welcome to live coverage the LaLiga clash between Real Valladolid and Atletico Madrid at the Jose Zorrilla.
