Atlantic Derby - Real MadridTOCentral and forward fight inside the field and 'want' out of it
Sergio Ramos and Diego Costa. Diego Costa and Sergio Ramos. Two players made to win. Born competitors. Soccer runs through his veins. With the ball in play, nobody wants to lose and less two hot-blooded players who have had their more and less in more than a decade of clashes until they have ended up being "brothers" and teammates.A relationship of hate within the field and of love and respect outside of it.
Insults, kicks, spit .... Between the Sevillian and the Hispanic-Brazilian, there have been so many frictions on the pitch that a documentary may well be given. However, outside the field of play, respect has almost always manifested and the relationship, despite having conflicting objectives, has gotten better with the years.
The first time faces were seen on a pitch was in the 2009-10 season with Diego Costa still defending the colors of theReal Valladolid. And both in the first leg and on the way back, Sergio Ramos finished with yellow card. For its part, the striker of Lagarto has measured the camero with the colors of Valladolid, of course with those of the Atlantic and also with the red and white stripe of the Ray. Precisely,Vallecas was the first stage where sparks between Costa and Ramos jumped in the 2011-12 season. On a sunny afternoon and with Madrid dressed in red, the whites were imposed by the minimum (0-1) to the Ray thanks to a 'heel' that was invented Christian. But that afternoon they had their ms and their less Sergio Ramos and a young Diego Costa. Still with 0-0 on the scoreboard, the Madrid defender gave an elbow to Costa within the area that did not signalFernndez Borbaln.
To the following season with Diego Costa already in the Atlantic of Madrid and inSimeone's first derby in the Bernabu, Madrid won 2-0, but central and forward again starred in a 'fight' with spit in the middle that brushed the grotesque.Costa I saw them with Ramos, but also with Pepe, which I recognized some time later that he loved. "I liked to face Ramos and Pepe very much. It was a good and beautiful battle. Sparks jumped and we had them, but I guarantee you that they liked it too because of that. As soon as we entered the field we knew what was going to happen.They entered hard and me too, but there was loyalty. There were frictions, insults, but in the end we greeted each other", explained Costa.
Something that Ramos didn't seem to like so much at the time. "Falcao is an honest player, butothers give a bad image to children. The television cameras are there, "said Sergio.
In total, they have met 15 times with a balance of 9 favorable victories for Ramos, three for Costa and three other draws. When it comes to goals,Costa has only scored four goals with Ramos in front, but all important. First was the goal in thefinal of the Copa del ReyThat is played at the Bernabu. Another was the only one so much of the derby that was played at the Bernabu in the 2012-13 season on the way to the conquest of the league title and the last two were in theEuropean Super Cupin which the Atletico won 4-2 against Real Madrid in Tallinn.
Ramos has scored six goals against Atletico, the same as Bale and Benzema together, but with Costa in the field there have only been two. The one from the final of Miln and the one from the European Super Cup. Now, defense and forward face again just a year later, since Costa was not in the 1-3 of the Wanda in which s Mark Ramos.One of LaLiga's duels returns and sparks are going to jump.
