Atletico Madrid avenged last month's defeat by Borussia Dortmund to move level on points with the Germans in Champions League Group A.

Saul opened the scoring in the 33rd minute with a left-footed finish from inside the box, before Antoine Griezmann scored his third of the campaign to seal victory.
