Two goals from Diego Costa, added to Raúl García's early strike, helped Club Atlético de Madrid to a comprehensive victory at FK Austria Wien as they took full control of Group G.
Having won their first two UEFA Champions League fixtures, Diego Simeone's side kicked off full of confidence and were almost sure of the points before 20 minutes had been played. García tapped in Filipe Luis's pass to give the visitors the lead before Costa doubled their advantage with a superb individual effort and rounded off a fine evening's work with his second and Atlético's third early in the second half.
We didn't manage to go into the challenges the way we had intended in the opening 20 minutes. We showed too much respect.
Nenad Bjelica, Austria manager
It was a very good first half for us in terms of how we interpreted the way in which we had to control the game and its rhythm.
Diego Simeone, Atlético coach
