Spanish international forward David Villa found the back of the net against former club Barcelona, in Atletico Madrid's Spanish SuperCup final against the Catalan club.

Villa transferred to Atletico Madrid from Barcelona in early July for a fee of €5.1million, which saw the Spaniard succeeding the role of Radamel Falcao who departed from the Spanish capital to newly promoted French outfit AS Monaco.

The 31-year-old opened the scoring in the first leg of the SuperCup with a sublime volley which saw the ball fly past Barcelona 'keeper Victor Valdes, leaving the number one with no chance of saving his team.

Villa, on his Atletico Madrid debut, is looking to claim his first trophy as a Madrid player, less than two months after joining the Spanish outfit, which will see manager Diego Simeone lift his fourth trophy in 19 months as Atletico manager.

The Argentine has won the Europa League, Europe SuperCup and Copa Del Rey with Atletico and could be set to lift the Spanish SuperCup, adding to his collection.

Barcelona's new manager Gerardo 'Tato' Martino is looking to open his Barcelona managerial career with a strong start, as defending Champions of Spain.

Winning the SuperCup will give Barcelona a confidence boost for the season ahead, in hope of retaining their crown.
