Spanish LaLiga match report Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid 08 April 2018


However, their lead lasted less than five minutes as Griezmann capitalised on some poor defending to equalise it at 1-1.

He had little chance with Ronaldo's strike but preserved Atletico's point in stoppage time with another brilliant stop from a Sergio Ramos free-kick.

Ronaldo had earlier volleyed home the opening goal, and it was no surprise to see the forward score as he is in such red-hot form. However, Real have a healthy lead in the tie, making it something of a odd move by the Real Madrid boss.

France global Griezmann, 27, has now scored on each of his last three league visits to the Bernabeu and has 18 goals in his last 20 games in all competitions.

Thomas Partey played in Griezmann, who cleverly slid possession to Vitolo and was on hand to steer the loose ball into a vacant goal after Navas saved at the former Sevilla winger's feet. What we have done in this decade is tremendous, Atletico fans should be proud of how their team is competing.

However, it was not enough for Real to win the match.

Before the weekend's bout at the Santiago Bernabeu, Diego Simeone's Atleti is 12 points adrift of unbeaten league leader Barcelona with eight matches left.

The result in the capital edged Barcelona even closer to the title, with Ernesto Valverde's men 11 points clear of Atleti at the summit with seven games remaining.

Ronaldo shone as Real beat Juventus 3-0 in the Champions League in midweek.

Atletico have exclusively completed above their extra illustrious neighbors as soon as within the final 22 years, but heading into this weekend's sport they maintain a 4 level benefit over Zine dine Zidane's males.
