Top goalscorer Fernando Torres (15)

Atlético Madrid opened a new chapter in its history with the appointment of Mexican coach Javier Aguirre, who had been successful managing Osasuna. With the club-record signing of superstarlet Sergio Agüero as well as Mariano Pernía and Raúl García, Atlético emulated at repeating Aguirre's recent feat of taking Osasuna to UEFA Champions League. The end result was 60 points, the best points haul in its five-season La Liga return, although this was not enough even for UEFA Cup qualification, which resulted in captain Fernando Torres departing for Liverpool, the transfer causing fury among the support. It was the sole season that he and Sergio Agüero played together.
