Atlético hit five, Barcelona prevail

Club Atlético de Madrid continued their strong start to the season with a 5-0 victory against Rayo Vallecano de Madrid, which contrasted with FC Barcelona's narrow win at Málaga CF.

Club Atlético de Madrid put in another impressive performance at the start of the Liga season as they took Rayo Vallecano de Madrid apart in a 5-0 victory, while title holders FC Barcelona also prevailed.

Having beaten Sevilla FC last weekend, Atlético made it two wins from two with goals from Raúl García bookending their triumph. The midfielder headed in a corner on 17 minutes before Diego Costa and Arda Turan put the hosts three up against their city rivals at the break. Tiago then registered with a powerful header after the interval and Raúl García wrapped things up in the final minute.

As for Barcelona, they followed up their 7-0 performance against Levante UD with a 1-0 victory at Málaga CF, Adriano settling the contest just before the break for a Barça team shorn of the injured Lionel Messi. Elsewhere, goals from Charles Dias de Oliveira and Nolito gave RC Celta de Vigo a 2-1 win at Real Betis Balompié, despite the sending off of Borja Oubiña, while Levante and Sevilla drew 0-0.
