The victory saw Atletico move to fourth on the table and Forlan said: "It's good. We're now closer to the Champions League places and must continue along this line.
"I'm happy with five goals so far this season. Every player must find a way of contributing to the team.
"We're also playing well in the UEFA Cup. We have a chance in that competition. We are now getting good results and exciting the fans. It's going well."
