The best pictures from the red hot Madrid derby – Atletico 2 – Real 2

Atletico Madrid recovered well from their Copa del Rey hiding, and salvaged much pride tonight in their 2-2 draw with Real.

There was plenty of incident and controversy as ever when these two meet, with Pepe and Cristiano involved in some theatrics and fun.

Amazingly, only 5 yellow cards were issued, and all 22 players remained on the pitch despite the feistyness which threatened to boil over at times.

Below are the best pictures from a brilliant Madrid derby from the Calderon tonight.
