Euro debut excites Jimenez

Atletico Madrid striker Raul Jimenez is relishing the prospect of making his Champions League debut at Olympiacos in Tuesday's Group A opener.

The Mexico international is one of the many reinforcements made by the Spanish champions this summer.

The 23-year-old, who joined Atletico from home side America, is set to play alongside Mario Mandzukic in attack against the Greek champions.

"It's a beautiful feeling to go from watching the Champions League games on TV to actually having a chance to play in the competition," Jimenez told his club's official website.

Jimenez earned his first start for Atletico in Saturday's 2-1 triumph at Real Madrid in the Primera Division.

The derby victory at the Bernabeu, courtesy of Arda Turan's winner, lifted Atleti just two points behind league leaders Barcelona after three games played.

It also allowed the Colchoneros to avenge last season's Champions League final defeat to Real.

However, Atletico coach Diego Simeone has warned his players against complacency.

"We have to forget about this win," he said. "Yes, it was an important result for the team and for our fans.

"We had never in the club's history beaten Real Madrid twice in a row in the league.

"But we cannot forget that we are starting over. We had 10 players leave this summer and we need to work hard to grow and improve."

Rivals Olympiacos made it to the last 16 last term and beat Manchester United 2-0 at home before losing 3-0 at Old Trafford.

However, coach Michel - a former Real Madrid favourite in his playing days - knows it will be difficult for his team to go as far this season, with Olympiacos also facing Italian champions Juventus and Swedish side Malmo in the pool.

"Atletico and Juve are very tough opponents," Michel told Spanish newspaper Marca.

"These two teams are the favourites to go through and do well. My hope is that my players can hand good performances in every game.

"As always, we will do our best to reach the next round."

The hosts head into the encounter unbeaten this season and on the back of Saturday's 3-0 triumph over OFI Crete.

Michel will have all of his players available for the encounter at the Georgios Karaiskakis stadium.

The visitors will be without midfielder Cristian Rodriguez, who is out with a left thigh injury.

Olympiakos 3-2 Atletico Madrid

Olympiacos got their Champions League campaign off to a winning start as they recorded a 3-2 victory over Atletico Madrid in the Group A clash at Karaiskakis Stadium.

Arthur Masuaku opened the scoring for the hosts and Ibrahim Afellay doubled their lead after 31 minutes before Mario Mandzukic pulled one back for Madrid before half-time.

Konstantinos Mitroglou made it 3-1 midway through the second half before Antoine Griezmann struck for last season's beaten finalists at the end.

Eric Abidal was the first Olympiacos player to test the visiting defence but his long-range thunderbolt from the left sailed past the right post.

It did not take the hosts long to open the scoring and Masuaku struck after 13 minutes to hand the Greek champions the lead.

The 20-year-old collected the ball from Afellay on the left and made no mistake as he drilled it low past Jan Oblak from 25 yards out.

Atletico came close with a chance of their own four minutes later as Gabi's outswiniging corner from the right found the head of Mandzukic, but the Croatia striker sent the ball over the crossbar.

Abidal blocked a close-range header from Mandzukic midway through the first half as the away side fought their way back into the match.

But just after the half-hour mark, the hosts got on the scoresheet for the second time as Alejandro Dominguez picked out Afellay, who powered the ball home from the centre of the 18-yard box to double his side's advantage.

However, seven minutes later Mandzukic got his reward for his numerous first-half missed chances as he collected Cristian Ansaldi's cross and sent home a fantastic close-range header into the bottom corner to make it 2-1.

The second half began at a slower pace than the first finished and it was the visitors that came closest to scoring as summer signing Griezmann tested Roberto Jimenez - but the Olympiacos goalkeeper managed to tip the ball over the bar.

The home side hit back deep into the second half with their third goal as Pajtim Kasami picked out on-loan Greece striker Mitroglou in the box, who made no mistake with his close-range volley.

Atletico were desperate to get back into the game now but Jimenez made a comfortable catch as he denied an Alessio Cerci header with little over 10 minutes left.

The visitors' pressure paid off as Griezmann picked up Jorge Koke's cross from the left and converted from close range - but they could not find an equaliser.
