Atlético de Madrid finally reached the UEFA Champions League, following its most successful season since its 1995-96 league title. In the wake of captain Fernando Torres departing for Liverpool, Atlético responded with the signings of Diego Forlán, Thiago Motta, Simão and José Antonio Reyes, aimed at propelling the club to the top. A few early defeats caused concern, but the partnership between youngster Sergio Agüero and Forlán gelled so well that the club managed 66 goals and 64 points. Thanks to the double victory against Sevilla, Atlético managed to take the final spot for the Champions League, surprisingly finishing only three points behind Barcelona in third.
