Joao Felix scored a goal in each half for Atletico Madrid as Diego Simeone's men recorded a sizeable 5-0 away victory against Osasuna in La Liga.

But how was Felix's overall performance?

Key Moments

It may have taken Felix, and Atletico as a whole, a little while to heat up on Wednesday, but once they found their feet the 20-year-old sprung into life, popping up everywhere along the frontline.

Since his move from Benfica, one thing that has evaded him sometimes in an Atleti shirt has been confidence, but tonight it was bursting out of him. Nearly every touch was taken with authority, and nearly everything he tried came off.

⚽ He would eventually break the deadlock in superb fashion, latching on to the ball a yard inside the penalty area to rifle an unstoppable strike into the roof of the net.

A minute before the break, he tested the gloves of the goalkeeper with another rasper of a strike which was palmed away from danger. He would have had an assist in the first half too if Hector Herrera hadn't fumbled his feet a few yards out.

⚽ After the break is when Atletico really stepped up, scoring four second-half goals. The first of them, and their second of the match overall, came in simple fashion for Felix as he tapped home after the square pass from Diego Costa.

He was eventually subbed off for the remaining 20 minutes, with Simeone likely looking to keep him fresh for the match against Real Valladolid in a couple of days.
