Two goals in the first five minutes put Atletico Madrid on track for a comfortable 5-1 win at Las Palmas on Saturday.

Diego Simeone made five changes to the side which drew 2-2 in last weekend's opener at Girona, and his side were 2-0 up inside five minutes thanks to neat finishes from Angel Correa and Yannick Carrasco.

Ex-West Ham striker Jonathan Calleri headed the home side back in the game near the hour mark.

But midfielder Koke soon restored his side's two goal advantage with a fine 25-yard strike, and the Atletico midfielder then got his second of the night with a spectacular bicycle kick.

Atletico goalkeeper Jan Oblak saved Jonathan Viera's penalty,before Thomas Partey rounded off the scoring in the 88th minute with a fine strike from the edge of the box, 1-5.

The defeat was the second consecutive loss for Las Palmas to open the season.
