In case you didn't know...
Atletico started the match very well as Simeone's men showed their domination over Barcelona. Atletico down to ten men as their main striker was shown a direct red card. With the ten, Atletico performed better than Barcelona. The half time ended with a 0-0 scoreline.
In the second half, Madrid side kept the pressure on the Catalan side as no space was given to Messi, Suarez and Coutinho. The Madrid defence played a superb football last night until Luiz Suarez's curler went into the net at the 85th minute of the match.

The heart of the matter...
It was the 27th minute of the match when Jordi Alba made a tackle on Diego Costa. Diego Costa started to appeal for a foul to the referee. After seeing the Referee's disapproval, Costa jumped up and started to rebuke the 35-year-old match official.
It was Diego Costa, who started to abuse his mother as the Atletico forward was given the marching orders by the Referee. Immediately, Costa replied to the referee, "son of a b***h". In the next moment, his Spanish teammate, Gerard Pique came on the spot and silenced Costa by saying, "you're going to miss four games now".
The forward was not happy with the decision as the 30-year-old experienced Spaniard made his way through the Camp Nou's tunnel after abusing the match official.
