Ronaldo scores again but Madrid derby ends all square

Partey: Madrid derby 'more important' for title-chasing Atletico

Astonishingly though an nearly nonexistent Antoine Griezmann then levelled the scores just four minutes later with a rasping shot after playing a neat one-two with Vitolo.

Griezmann indicated last month that he would decide on a move before the World Cup finals in Russian Federation, which start on June 14. Better than Paris Saint Germain, better than Manchester City, better than Barcelona.

Los Blancos came close to pulling a late upset in this one as Jan Oblak pulled off a stunning save to block the free kick from Sergio Ramos. However, Real have a healthy lead in the tie, making it something of a unusual move by the Real Madrid boss.

"Teams like PSG and Juve have seen how hard it is to face them".

But Antoine Griezmann equalised on the rebound after Vitolo's shot was saved by Keylor Navas.

Atletico remain second on 68 points, four ahead of Madrid who occupy the third spot with seven games left to play in the league.

"What we have done in this decade is tremendous, Atletico fans should be proud of how their team is competing".

Sunday's result means that Barcelona finish the weekend even closer to the title as they have extended their lead at the top of the La Liga table. Bale was given the freedom of the Bernabeu by the Atletico defence on the left wing and he made them pay by sending an inch-perfect cross into Ronaldo to score with a well-taken volley at the back post - his 650th career goal.

Atleti were then on the charge and Koke should have put them ahead before the withdrawals of Ronaldo and Diego Costa for either side saw the offensive threat subside - much to the delight of those watching on in Catalonia.

Real Madrid look set to do likewise in the Champions League on the back of their 3-0 away win at Juventus, and have enjoyed somewhat of a resurgence from a slow start to the season with 12 wins from their last 14 matches. Diego Simeone's side won the first leg 2-0 and face a team that suspended 19 of their players after a spat with most of the first team, per the Guardian.
