Atletico Win Fierce Madrid Derby

Atletico Madrid beat Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu in consecutive matches after the Copa Del Rey final victory last May, with their 1-0 win in this fiery Madrid derby ending a 34 match unbeaten home run for the hosts.

Diego Costa scored in the 11th minute of this thrilling encounter between the neighbours, latching on to a superb incisive pass through the left channel to slot into the bottom right corner for the visitors, giving Atletic their first La Liga win over Reak since 1999.

Diego Simeone’s men looked the more likely to add to their lead, trying to catch their opponents on the break as Real left gaps at the back pushing forward looking for that all important equaliser.

Gareth Bale, the world’s most expensive player made his much awaited home debut coming off the bench at half-time as Carlo Ancelotti’s men searched for an equaliser, but it was a debut to forget for the Welshman as he hardly made an impact.

Koke crashed a left footed curling shot against the upright in the 80th minute after some excellent work by goal scorer Costa, who gave the hosts defence a torrid time all game, while the hosts young striker Álvaro Morata did look lively when coming on in the 73rd minute.

The visiting side won their seventh consecutive league fixture since the start of the season taking them to the top of La Liga and were deserved winners on the night, leaving their neighbours four points off the pace.
