Video: Highlights of Diego Costa’s Four-Goal Show v Real Madrid.. and His Red Card Brawl

Diego Costa had a pretty eventful game as Atletico Madrid beat Real Madrid 7-3 last night.

The Spanish striker was in red hot form as Diego Simeone’s side smashed seven past their city rivals in the International Champions Cup.

The game actually took place at Metlife Stadium in New Jersey as both teams tour the country.

And fans who were in attendance were treated to a 10-goal thriller, with Atletico going 5-0 up at half-time and then 7-1 up in the second half before Zinedine Zidane’s men pulled two back.

Costa was lethal, hitting four goals before then being sent off for causing a big brawl that started with a late tackle on Dani Carvajal.

The highlights from the game are entertaining:

This is the Costa red card incident:

What a game!

Atletico had to deal with the loss of both Antoine Griezmann and Rodri earlier in the summer, but have added Joao Felix, Marcos Llorente, Mario Hermoso, Felipe, Renan Lodi and Kieran Trippier.

And they’ll fancy their chances of success domestically and in Europe this season if they can keep putting in performances like the one last night.
