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

Sergio Cook | 09 April, 2018, 01:28

Nevertheless, the former Real Sociedad player has scored a league goal vs. Madrid in each of the last six seasons and on his last three visits to the Bernabeu.

Ronaldo was surprisingly replaced by Karim Benzema for the final 26 minutes, perhaps with Wednesday's Champions League quarter-final second leg against Juventus in mind. However, their lead lasted less than five minutes as Griezmann capitalised on some poor defending to equalise it at 1-1.

The home side were aggrieved not to be awarded a penalty after Toni Kroos went down under Juanfran's clumsy challenge two minutes later, and the Germany worldwide let his frustration show when he was booked for a needless foul on Griezmann.

Atletico actually had the ball in the back of the Real Madrid net in the 19th minute, but Diego Costa was adjudged to have felled Sergio Ramos in the build-up, before Oblak did well to keep out a Ronaldo strike down the other end.

Paris: Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann denied he had made a decision to join Barcelona next season, saying in an interview aired on French television on Sunday that such reports "were not good information".

In the 20th minute, Atletico thought they had taken the lead when Diego Costa fired past Keylor Navas.

Marcelo came very close to put Real Madrid ahead in the 42nd minute, but his effort struck the crossbar and the follow-up effort from Carvajal was saved by Oblak.

Atletico had a huge chance to score a second in the 82nd minute when Griezmann delivered a low cross towards Correa, but the Argentine, who was unmarked, just could not make contact.

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.
