Twitter Astonished By Copa Del Rey Classic


A sensational match occurred in Spain this evening, as Barcelona defeated Atletico Madrid 3-2 at the Vicente Calderon- but the goals were only half of the story.

Fernando Torres opened the scoring within 39 seconds, before Neymar equalised. Atletico then pulled ahed thanks to a controversial penalty, with Miranda then levelling things up again on the night by diverting the ball into his own net.

Atletico then appealed for another penalty for a hand-ball, which wasn’t given, and Barcelona hit on the counter-attack and Neymar achieved his second of the night.

At half-time the madness continued with Gabi being sent off, believed to be because he insulted the referee, before Arda Turan threw his boot towards the linesman. It wasn’t other there as Mario Suarez was dismissed for a second-bookable offence late in the game.

If you thought that was crazy, it also emerged during the game that Atletico’s Ansaldi was spending the evening in a police station after slamming his car door on the hand of a policeman. Bizarre doesn’t quite cut it!
