Antoine Griezmann salvages point in Madrid derbi at Bernabeu

  • Ronaldo trained with his team-mates on Saturday ahead of the Madrid derby against Atletico

For the first time in the game Oblak was beaten, but he recovered quickly to get up and save Dani Carvajal's rebound on the volley.

The Brazilian, as we know, is blessed with loads of technical ability and he displayed just what he's capable of by skilfully flicking the ball over Gabi and feed Isco all in one motion.

"We have many games, that's it".

"We have to do our work well and play a complete game".

Sergio Ramos nearly snatched a win in injury time but his free-kick was brilliantly clawed out by Oblak to ensure that the points were shared in a result which leaves La Liga leaders Barcelona 11 points clear of Atletico with seven games remaining.

Barca now hold an 11 point lead over Atletico but Diego Simeone's side can still lift a trophy at the end of the term via the Europa League, with Los Rojiblancos well placed to reach the semi finals after beating Sporting CP 2-0 on Thursday.


Los Blancos own a 3-0 advantage over Juve but Zidane insists they can not afford to be complacent. However, he says he's happy in Madrid and is aware that he's representing a continent each time he takes the pitch for Atleti.

Gareth Bale was given 90 minutes, perhaps not the most positive indicator for his chances of a start in midweek. The Welshman supplied the cross for Ronaldo's equaliser but, in truth, he was quiet for long periods here, a pale shadow of his confident, marauding best. A game that looked in danger of drifting towards a stalemate sparked into life after half-time with two goals in four minutes.

The Portuguese forward got his goal when Atletico's back-up left-back Lucas Hernandez lost the flight of missed completely Bale's looping cross. But Atleti were soon level.

However, the lead lasted just four minutes before Griezmann exchanged passes with Vitolo before beating Navas with the help of a deflection off Varane.

Real were more aggressive in the search for a late victor but Atleti dug in.

Saul bent a shot narrowly wide for Atletico and Real, who brought on Luka Modric and Isco for Mateo Kovacic and Asensio, nearly snatched a late, late victor but Oblak made an excellent save from Sergio Ramos' free kick.
