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 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.
