Atletico Madrid star Saul Nigues should have made it two from a brilliant set play but the midfielder was unable to keep his shot down and the ball narrowly went over the bar.

The second half was as livelier as the the first as the 2012 European champions poured forward to get more goals.

And it was Morata again who made it 2-0 from a pin-point cross from Jesus Navas in the 72nd minute.

And that was how it stood as the Spaniards continued their perfect start to their Euro 2020 Group E qualifiers.
