Diego Costa's return to Atletico Madrid began in typically explosive fashion Wednesday night, and his second spell in La Liga has raised hopes that his new team might challenge leaders Barcelona. Costa swept home his first Atletico goal since leaving the club for Chelsea in 2014 just five minutes into his first appearance since May, scoring Atletico's third in a 4-0 hammering of third-tier Lleida Esportiu in the Copa Del Rey and showing the goalscoring prowess that Diego Simeone's side have lacked all season.Atletico, who host Getafe Saturday, are second in La Liga having lost only once all season but are nine points behind Ernesto Valverde's team, on 36 points after drawing six of their 17 league fixtures, more than any team in the top half of the table.
