The tone was set for an enthralling match when Atletico took the lead inside the opening minute through Sergio Aguero, but Real hit back to take the points through goals from Raul and Wesley Sneijder.
It was the men in red and white who were quickest into their stride though, taking less than a minute to score the first goal of the match and of the Primera Liga season.
