Atletico Madrid proved far too good for Athletic Bilbao in the Europea League final as they eased to a 3-0 win in Bucharest.

Colombia star Radamel Falcao was in top form and he curled home a wonderful opening goal within the opening eight-minutes.

He then doubled their lead just after the half-hour and Atletico were well on their way to reclaiming the trophy they last won in 2010.

Bilbao pushed to get back into the game in the second-half, but to no avail as Atletico wrapped up an impressive victory with Diego firing home in the final minutes.
