Atletico Madrid put one foot in the Europa League quarter-finals by comfortably seeing off Russian Premier League leaders Lokomotiv Moscow on Thursday night.

The scoring was opened in the 22nd minute when Saul Niguez seized the ball in the midfield, couldn’t find a pass on so instead decided to let rip with a shot from 35+ yards…

Not bad for a bloke who was basically already on his backside as he shot.

Further goals from Diego Costa (his sixth in 12 appearances since returning to Atleti) and Koke padded out the scoreline as Diego Simeone’s side coasted to a 3-0 first-leg victory at the Metropolitano.
