VIENNA (AP) -- Diego Costa scored twice as Atletico Madrid beat Austria Vienna 3-0 on Tuesday to maintain its winning run in the Champions League this season.

Raul Garcia gave Atletico the lead in the 8th after being set up by Filipe Luis and Diego Costa, who was serving a suspension during the earlier games against Zenit and Porto, doubled Atletico's lead in the 20th minute after picking up the ball in his own half and dribbling 40 meters. He was left unmarked when he made it 3-0 in the 53rd.

Diego Costa, who leads the Spanish league with 10 goals, was replaced by Cristian Rodriguez after an hour.

Austria Vienna's Philipp Hosiner hit the cross bar in the 37th.
