UEFA Cup, league stage, day one

All three Spanish sides came away from their day one commitments with acceptable results, even though all were behind at some point in their respective matches. The best scoreline though was undoubtedly Getafe's 1-2 win at Tottenham, where spectacular goals from De la Red and Braulio cancelled out Defoe's earlier strike. Atlético Madrid drew 3-3 in a thrilling tie at Lokomotiv Moscow, Agüero and Forlán twice putting Aguirre's side ahead, but Agüero eventually saving a point with a late goal. And Villarreal drew 1-1 with Fiorentina, Capdevila equalising five minutes from the end after Vieri had put the Italians ahead. (25.10.07)
