Atletico Madrid clinch Europa League victory

Atletico Madrid clinched a 2-1 victory over Stromsgodset at the Vicente Calderon in the first leg of their Europa League third qualifying round tie.

Jose Antonio Reyes netted both the goals in the second half for the Rojiblancos as they took to the field just hours after star striker Aguero had completed his transfer to Manchester City.

It was not all plain sailing for the 2010 Europa League champions, though.

They had Miranda sent off 14 minutes from time and, four minutes later, Oyvind Storflor gave the Norwegian visitors hope for next week's second leg by halving the deficit.
