Published Add your comment

It's not every day your team beat your deadly rivals 4-0. And it's not every day you get the chance to travel halfway around the world to witness it first hand. 

But for Dhananjay Yadav, that's exactly what happened, as reported by Eurosport. The Atletico Madrid fan hailing from Bangalore won tickets and travel to the Vicente Calderon after winning a Facebook competition to find the best Atleti fan in India. 

Incredible victory 

And it just happened to be the 4-0 demolition of city rivals and league-leaders Real Madrid...

Dhananjay was taken on a tour of the stadium and club museum before sitting down with the Atleti president pre-game.

After watching the stunning win he even got to meet his idol Fernando Torres. Dhananjay has been following the striker since 2001 and managed to get his shirt signed by the ex-Liverpool striker before handing him a gift.

After speaking to Torres, he said: "He's my idol. I might just cry. I still can't explain it. It's amazing. 

Goals from Tiago, Saul, Antoine Greizmann and Mario Mandzukic consigned Real to their heaviest defeat in four years and means their gap at the top of the table is down to one point.
