Cristian Rodríguez powered in the winner in added time as Club Atlético de Madrid took firm control of UEFA Europa League Group B with victory against FC Viktoria Plzeň.

It appeared that the Rojiblancos' 14-game European winning streak was coming to an end as they laboured for long periods against the disciplined Czech side. However, the Uruguayan blasted past Matúš Kozáčik with the clock showing 93 minutes to stretch the run to 15 matches and make it two victories from two in the secion.
