Diego Costa give Atlético first derby win in 14 years
Diego Costa scored the only goal of the game as Atlético Madrid won the Madrid derby.
The Brazilian striker scored after only 11 minutes to secure Atlético’s first league win over their fierce rivals since 1999 and make sure his side kept up the pace with Barcelona.
The win sees Atlético join Barca on seven wins out of seven this season.
Costa, who this week has been the subject of a bid from the Spainsh national set up to see if he can represent his adopted country, latched on to an early ball from Koke to give his side the three points.
His goal also saw him join Barcelona star Lionel Messi at the league’s top scorer with eight goals so far this season.
