The ever-eventful derby between Atletico Madrid and city rivals, Real Madrid headlined La Liga's sixth round of the 2023/24 season.

The explosive game lit up in the fourth minute after a sublime cross from winger, Samu Lino, headed in by former Los Blancos man, Alvaro Morata.

Antoine Griezmann widened the gap between the sides as he converted another header from a Saul Niguez cross.

As reported by Marca, a stunner from Toni Kroos would provide temporary hope for fans of the visiting side.

However, a 46th-minute strike by Morata would eventually condemn Carlo Ancelotti's side to their first defeat of the season after he converted a sublime cross from Real Madrid academy graduate, Saul.

Following the victory, Griezmann addressed the media and at the conclusion of his presser, he sent a cheeky message to children who supported Atleti across the Spanish capital.

The 32-year-old attacker was visibly elated by his team's performance on the night and at the conclusion of the press conference, as quoted by Football Espana, he had a message translated as follows:

"And tomorrow, go to school in your Atleti shirt, kids."

The victory saw Los Rojiblancos bring their two-game winless run - which included the 3-0 defeat suffered to Valencia and the UEFA Champions League draw away at Lazio - to an end.

Atletico Madrid to sign Mateu Alemany

Sports Brief previously reported on La Liga giants, Atletico Madrid looking poised to sign on a significant figure in the world of football.

However, this is not aimed at enhancing their on-field prowess but rather at fortifying their management and overall operations off the pitch.

Former Barcelona director of football, Mateu Alemany has been linked with a move to join the hierarchy at the Madrid-based outfit.
