Vitolo delighted with winning Atletico Madrid debut: Diego Costa is too!

With Atleti already 2-0 up thanks to strikes from Diego Godin and Fernando Torres, Juanfran squared a ball across goal before Costa converted with a clever flick.

Costa will be hoping to make his first competitive club appearance since Chelsea's FA Cup final loss to Arsenal on May 27 a year ago.

Despite the injury scare, Costa revelled in his return, saying: "I'm very happy to have played for Atletico Madrid again".

Simeone is hoping that the 29-year-old Costa is still the same caliber as when he scored 20 goals to lead Chelsea to the EPL title.

Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone has expressed his frustrations with the club's decision to sell Argentine striker Luciano Vietto.

Costa appeared to injure himself during the celebration, and after receiving treatment on his right knee behind the goal for a brief period, he was able to finish the match with what looked to be a bruised knee.

"It is great for me to play for Atletico Madrid again, the club are very important to me and I am very happy with this". He brings speed, strength and physicality, which is what we expected of him.

Costa moved back to Atletico after he fell out with Chelsea coach Antonio Conte despite helping the English side win the Premier League last season.

The striker agreed a deal to re-join the Spanish giants from Chelsea in September but Atletico's transfer ban meant he was prevented from making his second debut until January.

The second leg against third-tier Lleida Esportiu is on Tuesday, with Atletico hosting Getafe in the league on Saturday.
