Diego Costa scores in Atletico Madrid return |

Diego Costa did not wait long before he endeared himself to the Atletico Madrid faithful once more.

In his first game available for the club since his fall transfer from Chelsea was agreed upon, Costa was on the bench to begin Atletico’s Copa del Rey match against Lleida Esportiu.

He entered the game in the 64th minute to make his first appearance in an official game for Atletico since the end of the 2013-14 season.

And five minutes later, Costa was on the scoresheet as he managed to steer home a low cross from Juanfran.

That Costa goal made Atletico’s lead an even more-comfortable 3-0. They went on to win the first-leg contest 4-0.

It was Costa’s first goal for Atletico since April 2014, which he scored against Chelsea, his future team.

Costa would leave that season for London in a €40 million deal, spending the next three seasons with the Blues, and winning two Premier League titles.

He returned to Atletico this fall in a deal worth a reported €66 million, and will hope to build on a club career that included a La Liga and Copa del Rey title.
