Atlético Madrid climbed out of the relegation zone after beating Espanyol 4-0 in the last game of the weekend. Reyes hit the post before combining with Agüero to help Diego Forlán open the scoring midway through the first half. Agüero made it two with a well struck free kick on the hour mark, and the Catalans had Roncaglia sent off for a second bookable offence before Agüero and Maxi wrapped things up late on.
