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.

Reaction

We didn't manage to go into the challenges the way we had intended in the opening 20 minutes. We showed too much respect.

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.

Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    Atlético make it three wins from three. The Spanish side was relatively comfortable throughout the match, and found themselves two goals up inside just 20 minutes thanks to strikes from Raúl García and Diego Costa. The Brazilian then wrapped up the win and a great individual performance with another goal just after half-time. The result gives the Spanish side control of Group G, as they now sit five points clear.
