Atletico see off Malmo

Goals from Koke and Raul Garcia put Malmo to the sword and helped Atletico Madrid towards the next stage of the Champions League.

Koke netted part-way through the first half from a Juanfran cross and Garcia found the target late in the second when the hosts failed to clear a cross.

Malmo had previously recorded clean sheets in their home Champions League games this season and gave Atletico a tough game, calling Miguel Angel Moya into action repeatedly and hitting the post with the score at 1-0.

The victory means Atletico have nine points from their four games while Juventus’ dramatic 3-2 win over Olympiacos has the Italians and the Greeks level on six points.
