Champions League qualifying round

Panathinaikos 2 - Atlético Madrid 3

Atlético Madrid took a big step towards a second consecutive year in the Champions League after beating Panathinaikos 2-3 in the first leg. Maxi put the Spaniards one up before the break after good work by Diego Forlán, and although Salpingidis caught them off guard at the beginning of the second half to equalise, Forlán restored the lead soon afterwards. Agüero got a third after an individualist run six minutes later, and Leto scored a second for the Greek side later on. (19.08.09)
