Revamped Atlético off to winning start in Spanish league

MADRID (AP) Atletico Madrid's revamped team got off to a winning start in the Spanish league on Sunday, edging Getafe 1-0 with a first-half goal by Alvaro Morata.

The striker scored with a header off a well-placed cross by right back Kieran Trippier, one of the many new players in an Atletico squad that was without Antoine Griezmann for the first time in five seasons.

Griezmann's replacement, young Portuguese star Joao Felix, had a decent performance but was substituted with an apparent leg injury midway through the second half.
