UEFA Europa League holders Club Atlético de Madrid maintained their 100% start to Group A with a 2-1 victory against A. Académica de Coimbra.

Looking to extend their unbeaten run to a club record 21 games, Diego Simeone's side forged ahead courtesy of Diego Costa's volley shortly after half-time. Emre Belözoğlu's first goal for the club – a wonderfully struck free-kick that drew Simeone's applause – made it 2-0 and that proved crucial as Salim Cissé's header halved the deficit late on.
