Atletico wins first match in La Liga

MADRID - La Liga champions Atletico Madrid recorded their first victory of the campaign with a hard-fought 2-1 win over newly-promoted Eibar yesterday.

First-half headers from Miranda and Mario Mandzukic ultimately proved decisive, but Atletico were given a scare after Abraham's brilliant strike had brought Eibar back into the game.

Earlier, Athletic Bilbao celebrated their qualification to the group stage of the Champions League with a comfortable 3-0 win over Levante.

A two-goal hero from their triumph over Napoli in midweek, Aritz Aduriz headed home the opener just after the half-hour mark.

Ander Iturraspe doubled the Basques advantage just after the break before Iker Muniain rounded off the scoring.

Celta Vigo also continued their unbeaten start to the campaign despite the absence of departed coach Luis Enrique as they drew 1-1 at Cordoba.

Meanwhile Massimiliano Allegri silenced the doubters as champions Juventus beat Chievo 1-0 in the former AC Milan coach's first Serie A game in charge of the Old Lady of Turin.

Last season's runners-up Roma also began with a victory as Rudi Garcia's team beat Fiorentina 2-0, with Radja Nainggolan and Gervinho grabbing the goals.
