Atlético Madrid are a step closer to reaching the knock-out stage after beating Aberdeen 2-0. Javier Aguirre's side were unlucky not to be ahead early on when Pernia hit the post and Luis García wasted a couple of chances. But on the stroke of half time Hart felled Agüirre in the area, and Forlán stepped up to drill home the resulting penalty.
Up to that point Abbiati had only been tested by a Severin free kick, and Atlético continued to dominate after the restart. And half time substitute Simao doubled the score with a curling free kick which came off the post and went in off the back of Langfield.
After that Aguirre rested some of his key players, and Miller and Clark both could have pulled a goal back for the Scottish side. Mista could also have scored at the other end as well, but Atlético had done enough, and they ended the day in second spot in their group.
