A late Cristian Rodriguez goal has given Atletico Madrid a 1-0 win at home to Viktoria Plzen in Europa League Group B.

In a first half of few opportunities it was the hosts who looked the more likely to make the breakthrough.

Emre struck his shot wide inside the opening 10 minutes before Gabi did similar midway through the half.

Despite Madrid's dominance, their Czech visitors nearly took a surprise lead when Marek Bakos headed wide in the final minutes of the half.

Plzen were rejuvenated after the half-time whistle and began to cause Madrid more problems in front of goal.

Vaclav Prochazka was off target for the away side with a tame effort on the hour before Michal Duris could only fire wide.

However, Madrid snatched the victory in the first minute of injury time through Rodriguez's strike.
