Atletico Madrid got their first win of the season over newly promoted Las Palmas courtesy of Antoine Griezmann’s free kick. All eyes were on £25 million signing Jackson Martinez on his competitive debut for the club, but it was the familiar face of Griezmann who quickly took centre-stage at the Vicente Calderon.
He won the free-kick which led to the opening goal, his powerful effort taking a small deflection off a Las Palmas player and flummoxing goalkeeper Raul Lizoain on its way into the net to secure the 1-0 win.
