A painful memory was left for Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa when former Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli fired a free kick right at him.

Every man will feel Costa’s pain after he got in the way of Balotelli’s ball crunching free-kick.

Costa opened the scoring with only three minute on the clock, and refused to let the pain get the better of him as he grabbed another goal in the 85th minute as Atletico Madrid ran out comfortable 4-1 winners.
