Luis Suarez scored two goals to help Atletico Madrid beat Elche 3-1 and ensure it stayed at the top of the Spanish league on Saturday.

The league leaders moved three points clear of Real Sociedad and Real Madrid. Sociedad visits Levante later on Saturday, while Madrid visits Eibar on Sunday.

Suarez's double ensured Atletico bounced back from its 2-0 defeat at Madrid last round, its first defeat in the competition since February.

The Uruguay striker's seven goals this season make him joint-top scorer of the league along with Sociedad's Mikel Oyarzabal and Celta Vigo striker Iago Aspas.
