Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid cancel each other out in a thrilling Madrid derby at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Despite fair chances at both ends, the game ended nil-nil at half-time. But Cristiano Ronaldo ensured there's a breakthrough soon after the interval as he struck for the 10th game in a row. As Los Blancos finally looked to have beaten their city rivals at home, Griezmann intervened to pounce on a defensive flaw to equalise for the Rojiblancos.

Both Madrid teams then pushed for the winner, especially the home team, but there was simply no separating them till the full-time whistle as the match ended 1-1, allowing Barcelona to pull further clear at the top.

Here are some amazing stats from the Madrid derby

#1 Ronaldo scores 650th career goal

650 and counting
650 and counting!

In a career that's been touching one milestone after the other ever since the beginning, Cristiano Ronaldo added another feather to his cap.

The Portuguese star struck once more to take his career tally for cub and country to 650 goals, in a mammoth 905 appearances; a figure very few players in the history have managed to register. He's scored 81 of them for his national side, and 569 in club colours, 446 of which have come in those of Real Madrid alone!

One of the greatest goalscorers of the game, Ronaldo trails only Gerd Muller, Franco Bromovhic, Pele, Romario and Josef Bican in the all-time list of the most prolific goalscorers.
