Diego Costa Scores Four And Gets Sent Off For Sparking 22-Man Brawl in 10-Goal Thriller Against Real Madrid

While you were sleeping, Diego Costa had the most Diego Costa game ever when he scored four and got sent off as Atletico blitzed Real 7-3 in New Jersey.

Diego Simeone's side completely and utterly obliterated their city rivals in the first half, leading 5-0 at half-time thanks to their bullish striker going goal-crazy.

Costa opened the scoring inside the minute and continued on the same level, bagging his hat-trick goal in first-half stoppage time before notching his fourth and Atletico's sixth mere minutes after the break.

But of course, being the nutter he is, Costa couldn't stop there. With his team leading 6-1, he hacked down Spain teammate Dani Carvajal, squared up against him and sparked a crazy brawl between both sets of players.

After the situation was somewhat diffused, both players were given their marching orders. Never change, Diego.


After the two red cards, Atletico added a seventh goal five minutes later when Vitolo found the net to pile further misery on Zinedine Zidane and Real.

Los Blancos reduced the deficit ever late on through Karim Benzema and Javi Hernandez but the damage had already been done.
