Atlético Madrid top the first division at the end of day one after a 4-0 victory over Sporting Gijón. The Asturians lived up to their name applauding their opponents as they carried the European Super Cup on to the pitch before kick off.
Quique Sánchez Flores included the unsettled Jurado in his starting line-up, presumably to try and persuade him not to take up an offer from Schalke 04, and within ten minutes he opened the scoring after Raúl García played the ball back following a corner.
The visitors started to take control after that, but six minutes before the break they went further behind, Diego Forlán left with the easiest of tasks after Agüero battled his way past five defenders. De Gea did well to save from De las Cuevas soon after the restart, but a few minutes later Forlán made it three after Reyes and Ujfalusi combined to set him up.
Agüero was denied the goal he deserved on a couple of occasions by Juan Pablo, but with the game in injury time Simao completed the rout with the best of the night, a curler in to the top corner of the net after picking up a return pass from Mario Suárez. A great week for Atleti - could this be their season at last?
