      Diego Simeone’s men run out 2-0 victors over Deportivo in Madrid but the game is overshadowed following the death of a visiting supporter. Meanwhile, over in Greece, Olympiacos ease past Kerkyra with a 4-0 triumph

      Sunday’s Eurorivals action saw both Atletico Madrid and Olympiacos face lowly opposition in their respective leagues.

      Early on in the day, Diego Simeone’s reigning champions defeated Deportivo La Coruna 2-0 in a game that had been overshadowed by violence between both sets of supporters prior to kick-off in the Spanish capital.

      A Depor fan was taken to hospital before dying from cardiac arrest, hypothermia and head injuries following clashes in the vicinity of the Vicente Calderon.

      On the pitch, goals either side of half-time from Saul Niguez and Arda Turan ensured Atletico recorded their fifth win in six La Liga games which saw them briefly go second in the table before Barcelona won 1-0 away at Valencia on Sunday evening.

      Now that domestic action in the Super League Greece has resumed after play had initially been suspended indefinitely for violence on a referee’s committee official a couple of weeks ago, Olympiacos were able to ease past Kerkyra with a 4-0 victory.

      Midfielder David Fuster gave the visitors a half-time advantage before two quick-fire goals from Alejandro Dominguez and Omar Elabdellaoui prior to the hour mark saw Michel’s men race into a 3-0 lead.

      Dominguez then grabbed his second to put the icing on the cake as Olympiacos remained two points behind high-flying PAOK Salonika who registered a 3-2 home victory over Panthrakikos.
