Koke's corner kick aimed at Fernando Torres was headed into his own net by Sociedad's Mikel Gonzalez in the second minute.

Eight minutes later, Antoine Griezmann scored his 16th goal this season when he pounced on goalkeeper Geronimo Rulli's attempt to parry Koke's shot from the edge of the area.

Koke also attempted what looked initially like a long cross but as the ball dropped toward the top far corner, Rulli was forced to tip it over the crossbar in the 40th.

Atletico is third on 65 points behind league leader Barcelona on 71 and Real Madrid on 67, with both sides playing on Wednesday.
