Soccer-Atletico snap Dortmund's unbeaten run with 2-0 win

MADRID, Nov 6 (Reuters) - Atletico Madrid dominated Borussia Dortmund to win 2-0 in their Champions League Group A match on Tuesday, exacting some revenge for last month’s heavy loss in Germany and snapping their opponents’ unbeaten run this season.

Saul Niguez fired the hosts ahead in the 33rd minute and Antoine Griezmann added another in the 80th in a one-sided match that ended Dortmund’s 15-game unbeaten run in all competitions.

The result lifted Atletico to nine points, level with leaders Dortmund, with two games left in the group stage.

Belgium’s Club Bruges are third on four points after beating AS Monaco 4-0 earlier on Tuesday with the top two advancing to the knockout stage.
