Fernando Torres scored a rare La Liga goal as Atletico Madrid made light of Diego Costa's absence to consolidate second place in Spain with a 3-0 win over lowly Las Palmas Sunday.With Costa injured Atletico took a while to get going and had to wait until the 61st minute to open the scoring, Antoine Griezmann latching on to Juanfran's fine ball down the right flank before dinking neatly over Las Palmas stopper Leandro Chichizola.The Frenchman intercepted a loose pass and set Angel Correa free to scamper down the pitch and feed Torres, who shifted the ball onto his right foot and lashed home the goal that sealed the three points.
