Video: Atletico Madrid 4, Sporting Gijon 0

Atletico Madrid, the reigning Europa League and recently crowned UEFA Super Cup champion, began its La Liga campaign in fine style with a 4-0 victory over Sporting Gijon. The first (Jurado) and last (Simao) were magnificently struck from distance, the middle two scored by Uruguayan World Cup star Diego Forlan on simple finishes. Watch the breathtaking work by Sergio Aguero to set up the second goal of the match.

Aguero's run: Messi-anic

In a world of over-the-top goal celebrations, I love Forlan just walking over to Aguero and giving him a hug. Or jogging over to the assister for the second. As the Brits would say, he really is class.

Forlan almost looked embarrassed at how easily he scored.
