Renan sent off as Atletico Madrid defeat Getafe

Two players from each team were sent off as Atletico Madrid defeated Getafe 1-0.

Former Tottenham fullback Kieran Trippier assisted Alvaro Morata's winning goal as Atletico Madrid defeated Getafe in their opening La Liga match.

Trippier marked his competitive debut by crossing for Chelsea loanee Morata to head in after 23 minutes.

Morata missed a 56th-minute penalty which resulted from £113m club record signing Joao Felix's weaving run towards goal from deep inside his own half.

Both sides had a man sent off.

Atletico debutant left-back Renan Lodi was dismissed for two bookable offences in two minutes shortly before half-time - just four minutes after Getafe's Jorge Molina Vidal had received a straight red card.
