Atletico Madrid recorded a comfortable 3-1 victory against Eibar in their Spanish La Liga clash on Saturday.
The Rojiblancos made a quick start to the clash as they took the lead after only seven minutes. Garcia set up the opener when he spotted the run of Antoine Griezman and subsequently played it on for him to slam into the bottom corner of the net.
The visitors' lead was doubled in the 23rd minute. On this occasion Griezman was the provider as he hooked a cross towards the far post where Mario Mandzukic poked home following a frantic scramble for the ball.
The Croatian was on target again two minutes later to complete his brace. A misunderstanding between Abraham and Raul Navas under a high ball allowed Mandzukic to steal the ball away and fire home a precision finish.
Eibar finally got on the scoresheet in the 89th minute when Saul beat his man on the left before crossing towards Piovaccari who finished at the far post, providing a consolation for the hosts.
