Atletico too good for Astana

Atletico Madrid
Atletico Madrid have won two and lost one of their three group-stage games

In Group C, 2013-14 runners-up Atletico Madrid claimed a 4-0 win over Kazakhstan's FC Astana.

Saul Niguez's clever backheel put the Spanish side ahead and Jackson's Martinez's shot on the turn made it 2-0 before the break.

The hosts got a third through 20-year-old substitute Oliver Torres just after the hour and a Denys Dedechko own goal completed the scoring.

Atletico are second, level on six points with leaders Benfica, who lost 2-1 at Turkish side Galatasaray.

Nicolas Gaitan put Benfica ahead inside a minute but that was as good as it got for the Portuguese club.

Selcuk Inan equalised through a penalty and former Arsenal striker Lukas Podolski scored the winner before half-time.
