Man City boss Mancini sees Falcao star in Atletico Madrid win

Atletico Madrid ace Radamel Falcao was again outstanding in victory over Malaga.

Falcao put on a show for the watching Roberto Mancini as he guided his Atletico Madrid side to a thrilling 2-1 win over Malaga and a share of the Primera Division lead.

On a night when Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo proved their undeniable worth with braces in the Clasico, Falcao proved he has a game that can rival the pair of them at Vicente Calderon.

Whether Manchester City boss Mancini was there to watch the Portuguese or not, he will surely not have failed to notice another all-action display from the former Porto man.

He opened the scoring with his 11th of the season six minutes in and, when it looked as though Roque Santa Cruz's brilliant header would deny Atletico a share of top spot, Weligton put through his own goal in added time, under severe pressure from Falcao who may well look to claim the goal as his own.
