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

Partey: Madrid derby 'more important' for title-chasing Atletico Title out of rech, but pride at stake in Madrid derby

Zinedine Zidane's side had the better of the game and deservedly went ahead after Ronaldo volleyed home Gareth Bale's cross.

To general surprise, Zidane chose to take off Ronaldo after 64 minutes and replace him with Karim Benzema.

The Madrid derby between Real and Atletico wasn't quite the cracker we were hoping for but it did feature the sexiest touch of the season from Marcelo. He made it look like it was the easiest thing in the world and it really wasn't.

France global Griezmann, 27, has now scored on each of his last three league visits to the Bernabeu and has 18 goals in his last 20 games in all competitions.

Antoine Griezmann believes he is back to his best at Atletico Madrid after enduring a "complicated" start to the season.

Thomas Partey played in Griezmann, who cleverly slid possession to Vitolo and was on hand to steer the loose ball into a vacant goal after Navas saved at the former Sevilla winger's feet.

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.

However, it was not enough for Real to win the match.

Real Madrid welcome Juventus to the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday for the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final.

Atleti remain sandwiched between leaders Barcelona and third-placed Madrid in LaLiga, four points better off than their neighbours.

"When they scored, we responded immediately and we saw a game we could win with Koke and [Angel] Correa, and could have lost without [goalkeeper Jan] Oblak".

Atletico are also in European action as they head to troubled Sporting on Thursday.
