Real Madrid beat Almeria 5-0, but Atletico Madrid stayed a step ahead of their local rivals by trouncing Getafe 7-0. In the 69th minute, with Atletico already up 5-0, Diego Costa showed off his hops with an explosive overhead kick a mere seven minutes after coming off the bench, leaving the keeper to feel even more helpless and demoralized than he already was.
Costa now has 14 goals in 14 La Liga appearances this season, three behind top scorer Cristiano Ronaldo. Atletico remain three points ahead of Real Madrid in the table and three points behind leaders Barcelona.
Though he had to pull out of the last round of international friendlies with a minor injury, Diego Costa is still set on playing for Spain instead of his native Brazil. Which is still terrifying for anyone who will have to play Spain at the World Cup next summer.
