Saturday evening at the Vicente Calderon saw a curtain finally -- if unspectacularly -- drawn on last season's achievements. In a strange way it might actually help Atletico Madrid get on with business this campaign.
105 days after Los Rojiblancos drew 1-1 with Barcelona at the Camp Nou to seal the La Liga crown, the club's players finally got their hands on the trophy.
Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone has suggested his club could both buy and sell before the summer transfer window shuts on Monday night.
Defending La Liga champions Atletico have scored just four times in four 2014/15 games so far, with three of those goals coming from set-pieces, including the headers from Miranda and Mario Mandzukic in Saturday's uninspiring 2-1 home win over newly promoted Eibar.
