Athletico Madrid gets their first win of the season, beating Eibar 2 goals to 1. Goals from Joao Miranda in the 12th and Mario Mandzukich in the 26th minutes put them in the lead by break off time. Although, Abraham Minero manages to pull one back for his side in the 33rd minute. The game stays competitive, even after the break, when threats to goal from either side keep the game alive. Diego Godin plants a header wide for Eibar and 4 minutes later, Mikel Arruaberrana left foots a strike to the left post. But, the game score stays the same.
Athletico win at the Barnabeu through Tiago Mendes and Arda Turan 10th and 76th minute goals. Real show contention through a Christiano Ronaldo penalty at 26 minutes but it’s their only goal. The Real coach is on eight weeks suspension. Simeone:
Arda gave us football. When Turan scored, it was his third opportunity in three minutes. More than there had been in the previous 70. Just like last year’s league meeting at the same ground, he was the game’s outstanding player. The players who had been waiting to come on changed everything.
Olympiakos win through an Arthur Masuaku opener in the 13th minute, Ibrahim Afellay in the 31st and Konstantinos Mitroglou in the 73rd. Athletico pull two goals back through Mario Mandzukich and Antoine Griezzmann in the 38th and 86th minutes of the game.
