Atlético Madrid's revival continued on Saturday evening, and they moved up safely to mid-table after beating bottom club Xerez 0-2.
Reyes brought a good save out of Renan before setting up Forlán for the opening goal with just under half an hour gone. And Agúero made it two midway through the second half after controlling Paulo Assunçao's long ball before beating the keeper.
Domínguez was sent off for a second bookable offence before the end, but Sergio Asenjo made sure the Andalusians didn't score after that.
