Alvaro Morata scored twice as Atletico Madrid ended Real Madrid's 100% start to the La Liga season with a fine victory over their city rivals.

They led inside four minutes when former Real forward Morata converted Samuel Lino's dangerous cross.

Antoine Griezmann then made it 2-0 with another header, before Toni Kroos' fine low strike halved the deficit.

But Morata sealed Atletico's victory when he rose highest to meet Saul Niguez's ball in after the break.
