Raul Garcia and David Villa score twice each as Atletico Madrid hammer 10-man Getafe 7-0 at the Vicente Calderon in La Liga.

Atletico Madrid have registered a comprehensive 7-0 home win against Getafe in La Liga.

In what eventually turned out to be a first half of few concrete chances, Tiago could have put the home side in the lead as early as the third minute with a header from close range, but his effort went wide.

Then on 13 minutes Arda Turan tested Getafe goalkeeper Miguel Moya with a shot from outside the box.

The opening goal of the first period came in the 26th minute when Raul Garcia headed home Koke's delivery from close range.

With eight minutes left until the half-time interval, Alberto Lopo inadvertently put the ball inside his own net to double Atletico's advantage.

Things went from bad to worse for the visitors when they were reduced to 10 men on 42 minutes as Valera was sent off for two bookable offences.

The floodgates opened after the break as Atletico began to take advantage of their numerical superiority.

David Villa turned in Juanfran's cross from close range in the 49th minute and three minutes later Garcia headed home his second from inside the box.

Garcia could have completed his hat-trick just before the hour mark had his effort from close range not hit the Getafe crossbar.

Diego Costa then got in on the act on 69 minutes after latching on to Gabi's cross and Villa extended the scoring with his brace in the 78th minute.

Adrian wrapped up the proceedings in the third minute of injury time when Villa teed him up for an easy finish from the centre of the Getafe box.
