Full Time: Real Madrid 1-0 Atletico Madrid Cristiano Ronaldo 54' Antoine Griezmann 57'


21:35 (IST)8 APR 2018


That's it. It finishes 1-1. It was a cagey affair once again. You would've thought that Real Madrid would run away with it once Ronaldo opened the scoring. But it got Atletico Madrid to spring back into life and boy did they respond in style?!

Two of the biggest stars on the pitch got their goals as Atletico Madrid cement their 2nd place on the table.

That's all from the yap centre.

See y'all midweek.


21:34 (IST)8 APR 2018

92' One last attack for Real Madrid. Carvajal lays off Bale on the right flank. He dances past 2 challenges and sends a cross that's too heavy into the box and they can't save it. 

21:32 (IST)8 APR 2018


It's a really well taken freekick but Oblak takes flight and just about gets the tip of his fingers on it to send it for a corner. Nothing comes from the corner once again.

21:31 (IST)8 APR 2018

91' Sergio Ramos is on it. 3 minutes added on.

21:31 (IST)8 APR 2018

90' Saul impales Bale with a mistimed sliding tackle and gifts Real Madrid a freekick on the right side. But they take it short and shift the focus to the other wing. Iscodrives in and tries to get a shot away but Griezmann comes in and steals the ball away from him. However, Isco gets the ball back and he is clipped from behind by Savic. Freekick for Real Madrid. In the centre. Right outside the box.

21:29 (IST)8 APR 2018

87' Lucas Vazquez gets booked for simulation. A little harsh there. Lucas is clearly struggling and he might not even have gone down with malicious intent there.

21:27 (IST)8 APR 2018

86' All Real Madrid now! Toni Kroos skies one after Marcelo cuts in from the left flank and slaloms past a couple of challenges/

21:25 (IST)8 APR 2018

84' Carvajal's cross from the right side is too high for Bale and Marcelo tries to meet it with a drive back into the box but it is quelled and the ball is send away for a throw-in.

21:24 (IST)8 APR 2018

83' Modric releases Isco into an acre of space on the left side. His cross carries too much weight and Lucas Hernandez clears the danger.

21:22 (IST)8 APR 2018

81' Substitution for Real Madrid.

Thomas off. Kevin Gameiro on.

21:22 (IST)8 APR 2018

80' Griezmann brings the ball down from the sky like it was a sack of sand and slides it across into the danger area but Correa doesn't share the vision of Griezmann and he failed to make the run which would've given him an easy tap-in.

21:21 (IST)8 APR 2018

79' Lucas Vazquez is on the ground once again and once again, it is Godin who is the guilty party. No freekick or anything though but Vazquez is on the sideline. Real Madrid are reduced to 10 men now as they have used up all their chances. Can Vazquez get back?

21:19 (IST)8 APR 2018

78' A fresh Real Madrid attack fizzles out owing to an uncharacteristically poor cross from Bale.

21:19 (IST)8 APR 2018

77' Modric has revitalized this Madrid squad and he gets to go for goal after Marcelo's cross is blocked into his path. However, he sort of snatches at it and it goes out for a goalkick.

21:17 (IST)8 APR 2018

76' Some samba swagger from Marcelo tees up Gareth Bale for a cross. And once again, the Welshman's delivery is top notch but it comes to nothing but Real Madrid get back on the ball again and Carvajal's cross from the right is met by Gareth Bale who tries to head it into the far corner but ends up missing the target by a yard or two.

21:15 (IST)8 APR 2018

74' Lucas Vazquez is on the floor as he seems to have taken an elbow to the face from Godin as he tried to meet a Marcelo lobbed ball into the box. The ball subsequently falls to Carvajal whose shot is blocked and then cleared for a throw-in.

21:13 (IST)8 APR 2018

72' Marcelo whips one into the area, and Bale goes the scorpion mile but it aint got nothing on Giroud's as it flies 3 storeys into the air and comes back to rest in the hands of Oblak.

21:12 (IST)8 APR 2018

71' Substitutions for Real Madrid.

Isco in for Asensio. Modric in for Kovacic.

21:11 (IST)8 APR 2018

69' Saul absolutely wastes a great opportunity! Griezmann steals the ball and releases Saul on the right side and it is 2-on-1 situation as Varane finds himself in trouble. But while all he needed to do was dink one into the path of Costa who was running parallelly but instead he shifts it on to his right foot and takes a wayward shot that goes wide of the far post.

21:10 (IST)8 APR 2018

68' The tempo has gone down a bit but its just Real Madrid feeling their way back into the game. Juanfran takes his liberties into the Bale's personal space and thrusts his knee into the groin area. Looked criminal af. Gifts Real Madrid a freekick on the left flank. They take it short and recycle the ball to kick on with the patient game. 

21:08 (IST)8 APR 2018

66' Marcelo whips one into the box and Oblak dives into the corridor of uncertainty and punches it clear as Atletico break. But Varane is one of the faster centre-backs and he tracks back to deny Diego Costa the chance to go one-on-one with Navas.

21:05 (IST)8 APR 2018

64' The derby has come alive and we are seeing more end to end football now.

21:03 (IST)8 APR 2018

62' Substitution for Real Madrid.

Karim Benzema in for Cristiano Ronaldo.
This is a change made with the midweek game against Juventus in mind, right? Right? Of course.

21:02 (IST)8 APR 2018

61' Substitution for Atletico.

Correa in for Vittola. Correa is straightaway involved as his delightful touch releases Griezmann down the centre but Ramos and Varane get back in time to block the Atletico hitman's shot.

21:00 (IST)8 APR 2018

59' Asensio and Kroos with some exquisite one-touch football in the final third but Asensio just couldn't find enough space to get the shot away.

21:00 (IST)8 APR 2018

58' What a save by Navas! Atletico are now piling on the pressure but Koke Griezmann's shot is saved heroically by Keylor Navas. That should've made it 2-1 in favour of the visitors.

20:59 (IST)8 APR 2018

57' A lovely little one-two between Griezmann and Vittolo sets up a delightful goal for Atletico Madrid. Vittolo just gets there in time before Navas could collect it and lays it off to Griezmann who finishes into an unprotected net. Great response.

20:58 (IST)8 APR 2018


20:57 (IST)8 APR 2018

55' Saul gets a chance to go for goal from the left side of the box and Navas palms it away from danger.

20:55 (IST)8 APR 2018

54' There could have been yet another one for Ronaldo! Gareth Bale swings one into the box and Asensio tries to help it onto the path of Ronaldo but Savic clears it for a corner. They can't create anything of note from the corner though.

20:55 (IST)8 APR 2018

53' Gareth Bale gallops down the left flank and looks up to find Ronaldo making a run into the area and he pumps it in and it is served on a plate for Ronaldo who goes for goal, first time. And he thumps it into the far bottom corner. What a brilliant finish! 

20:53 (IST)8 APR 2018


20:53 (IST)8 APR 2018

52' Ronaldo drives to the byline on the right side, this time. But this time his ball is wayward and it goes out for a goalkick.

20:52 (IST)8 APR 2018

51' Ronaldo goes past Juanfran on the left wing and he hoofs one into the centre to find Vazquez. But the latter was off balance and offers a tame header for Oblak to negotiate with.

20:51 (IST)8 APR 2018

50' Tony Kroos curls one in and Godin clears it and Vittolo's attempt at chasing it down was never going tobe successful.

20:50 (IST)8 APR 2018

49' Freekick for Real Madrid in a dangerous position after Lucas Hernandez brings down Lucas Vazquez right outside the area on the right side.

20:50 (IST)8 APR 2018

48' Atletico's attack once again teeters out of relevance like so many of their previous ones.

20:48 (IST)8 APR 2018

47' Lucas Vazquez and Carvajal combine on the right side but the latter's cut back is not measured and Atletico clear.

20:47 (IST)8 APR 2018

46' Real Madrid, for all their efforts, haven't yet been able to perforate this Atletico Madrid defence. Remember, Atletico has conceded just 2 goals in their 4 previous league outings at the Bernabeu.

20:46 (IST)8 APR 2018

PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP! And we're off in the second half.

20:31 (IST)8 APR 2018

45' They take it short and the ref goes PEEEEEEEEP! PEEEEEEEEEP! No minutes added on here and that's that in the first half. Fairly entertaining first half, largely dominated by the Madrid lads in white, ends Real Madrid 0-0 Atletico Madrid.

20:30 (IST)8 APR 2018

44' Atletico win a freekick on the left flank, 40 odd yards out as Dani Carvajal screams in anger.

20:29 (IST)8 APR 2018

43' Toni Kroos is bundled over by Vittolo. He crashes into Kroos from behind, near the centre of the park. Vittolo should be careful, he is already on yellow.

20:27 (IST)8 APR 2018

42' Some top quality football all around.

20:27 (IST)8 APR 2018

41' Marcelo!! JAN OBLAK!
Marcelo cuts inside from the left flank and goes for a curler that Ronaldo would've been proud to bury into the top corner. It hits the upright and falls to Carvajal on the right side. He goes for it first time to the near post and Oblak puts in a desperate dive to parry it for a corner.

20:26 (IST)8 APR 2018

39' Bale spots the run of Ramos who dares to venture into Atletico's box and Bale finds him. His attempt at controlling the ball deflects off Savic. Real Madrid want a penalty for handball and the ref says nothing doing.

20:24 (IST)8 APR 2018

38' Gareth Bale makes an intelligent run down the left flank and Marcelo spots him and then finds him. Bale tries to dink it over Juanfran but it hits his body and goes out for a corner. Godin clears from the corner.

20:23 (IST)8 APR 2018

37' Bale puts a lovely ball into the box with the outside of his left foot from the left flank and it goes over Ronaldo and they can't salvage anything from the scraps.

20:21 (IST)8 APR 2018

35' Carvajal slides a ball from the right side to Ronaldo who feigns and lets it run to Asensio. Asensio then sweeps it across to Bale on the right side who tries to cut it back for Ronaldo to pounce upon but unfortunately, his cross is wayward and Atletico deal with the danger.

20:19 (IST)8 APR 2018

33' Thomas hacks Lucas Vazquez once again and he gets a yellow card this time. Poor Lucas is getting bullied out here. At home. Not fair, lads. Show some respect.
