Madrid - Atletico Madrid have cruised to their fourth consecutive victory with a 4-0 win at home to Austria Vienna on Wednesday, assuring themselves of top spot in Champions League Group G and a place in the last 16.

WRAP: Champions League

Miranda, Raul Garcia and Filipe Luis put La Liga's second- placed side three up before halftime and leading scorer Diego Costa netted the fourth late on after missing a second-half penalty.

The visitors, struggling domestically, bottom of the group and without a goal to their name, rarely threatened after a couple of chances early on.

The group's second-placed side Zenit St Petersburg were earlier held to a 1-1 draw at home to Porto to move on to five points, seven adrift of leaders Atletico and their perfect record with two games left to play.
