Atletico's leading striker, Fernando Torres, took his tally for the season to 10 with two goals in the first 10 minutes, and the Argentinian forward Maxi Rodriguez made it 3-0 when he ghosted in at the far post after a Martin Petrov free-kick.

The former Chelsea striker Mateja Kezman spurned a chance to add another before the break when he fired a penalty straight at Iñaki Goitia but the substitute Juan Valera made it four with the goal of the night, a 25-yard drive midway through the second half.

The Malaga midfielder Duda was sent off for use of the elbow 12 minutes from time and Valera took advantage to head in his second and Atletico's fifth in the final minute.
