Club Atlético de Madrid will take their place in the UEFA Champions League round of 16 as Group G winners, a fitting reward for a side who remain perfect in the section thanks to a comfortable victory against FK Austria Wien.
Hoping to emulate holders FC Bayern München's feat of qualifying with four straight wins the night before, the Rojiblancos produced a similar attacking display to that which saw off the Austrian champions on matchday three, with Miranda, Raúl García and Filipe Luis all scoring in the first half. Diego Costa made up for a missed penalty after the break with a clinching fourth towards the end as Atlético equalled their biggest victory in the UEFA Champions League.
We knew it was very important to win because of the result between Zenit and Porto. The team was great and we deserve to reach the round of 16.
Diego Costa, Atlético forward
Atlético were simply too good for u. They are a quality side. I am convinced that we will not only score a goal in the upcoming matches, but we will also collect some points.
