Atletico de Madrid regained its footing within Spain's La Liga Santander at the Wanda Metropolitano stadium before some 54,500 fans on Sunday, downing Villarreal 3-1 after coming from behind and once again enjoying the spark provided by the 20-year-old Jose Felix, now off the injured list after a month hors de combat.

In their five outings without Jose Felix, Atletico has suffered two defeats (Eibar and Real Madrid) and battled to two draws (Leganes and Valencia), but with the win they are once again in the No. 3 spot on the La Liga table, tied with Sevilla at 43 points after the southern Spain team defeated Getafe 3-0 on the road.
