Things always get a bit testy when city rivals Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid do battle. 

In the waning moments of an eventual 1-0 (2-1 aggregate) Spanish Super Cup victory for Atletico Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo's frustrations came to a boil, and Diego Godin was the unfortunate recipient of said frustration. 

During a set piece in injury time, the two got tangled up, and the Portuguese superstar took a swing at Godin, making clear contact. 

Ronaldo escaped with just a warning for the attack.
