PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP! PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP! PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!

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.

Ciao.

...
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. 
...
91' Oh my! Sergio! ONCE AGAIN JAN OBLAK DENIES REAL!

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.

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

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

Thomas off. Kevin Gameiro on.
...
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.
...
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?
...
78' A fresh Real Madrid attack fizzles out owing to an uncharacteristically poor cross from Bale.
...
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.
...
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.
...
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.
...
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.
...
71' Substitutions for Real Madrid.

Isco in for Asensio. Modric in for Kovacic.
...
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.
...
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. 
...
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.
...
64' The derby has come alive and we are seeing more end to end football now.
...
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.
...
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.
...
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.
