An inspired Atletico Madrid humiliated city rivals Rayo Vallecano with a 7-0 demolition job on Monday, with substitute Alvaro Morata scoring twice and midfielders Saul Niguez and Rodrigo de Paul giving two assists each.
Atletico took an early two-goal lead with Antoine Griezmann and Memphis Depay scoring from close range, while Nahuel Molina extended their lead in the 36th minute.
In the second half, Morata netted twice with Angel Correa and Marcos Llorente also on target as a rampant Atletico ripped apart their rivals.
Atletico are second in the La Liga standings, level on seven points with Barcelona and Girona.
Inter Milan seems just fine without Romelu Lukaku and Edin Dzeko.
Marcus Thuram was involved in both goals as Inter won 2-0 at Claudio Ranieri’s Cagliari on Monday to join defending champion Napoli, AC Milan and Hellas Verona as the only Serie A clubs to win their opening two matches.
The France forward threaded in a precise through ball to set up Denzel Dumfries’ opener and then was also involved in the build-up to a goal from Lautaro Martinez on the half-hour mark.
