Atletico Madrid vs Zenit St Petersburg 3-1 Miranda Hulk Turan Baptistao 2013 Goal Video Highlights

Thursday, September 19, 2013

Atletico Madrid got their Champions League campaign off to a strong start by producing a thorough performance to beat Zenit St Petersburg at the Vicente Calderon.

Joao Miranda’s headed goal had given the hosts the lead towards the end of the first half, but a stunning effort from Hulk drew the Russian side level.
Arda Turan restored Atletico’s lead not long after the equaliser, and then substitute Leo Baptistao scored his first competitive goal for Los Rojiblancos to seal the win.
The most high-profile absentee from Atletico’s starting line-up was Diego Costa, who was suspended after being sent off against Viktoria Plzen in last season’s Europa League, and Adrian Lopez started in his place in attack, alongside David Villa.
Mario Suarez returned after missing the match with Almeria at the weekend, replacing Tiago Mendes, and Joao Miranda was back in the team after recovering from a fever.
