It was a Madrid derby first up for Atleti with Diego Simeone’s side looking to start their campaign with three points on the outskirts of the capital.

New boy Axel Witsel started at the base of the midfield while Morata returned from his loan at Juventus and led the attack.

And it was Morata who opened the scoring after just 15 minutes, finishing well after a good piece of play from strike partner Joao Felix.

Into the second half and Morata soon doubled his tally for the evening as the Spaniard finished off some more brilliant work from Felix.

Things got even better for the visitors with 15 minutes remaining as Griezmann opened his account for the season with Felix grabbing a hat-trick of assists.
