A crazy fight ensued between the two players towards the end of the match as the home side Atletico hunted for an equalizer.
Barcelona got the lead in the game after Ousmane Dembele found the net in the 22nd minute. Atletico players protested against the goal as they claimed that Gavi had gotten away with a foul in the goal’s build-up. The goal was however allowed to stand.
Towards the end of the game, tempers rose after Savic dispossessed Torres on the halfway line, the duo fell to the ground together.
As play continued down the field, Torres appeared to have a yank at his opponent’s tightly cropped hair.
The Montenegrin took exception to this, momentarily appearing to get Torres into a headlock.
Savic then shoved Torres off as they both got back to their feet, but the damage had been done. Both players were subsequently shown red cards and didn’t complete the match.
Following the 1-0 win, Barcelona is now three points clear at the top of the La Liga table.
