Ronaldo, Griezmann On Target As Atletico Hold Real Madrid

Griezmann celebrates his goal Griezmann celebrates his goal

Zidane surprised everybody by taking off Ronaldo just after the hour mark and replacing him with Karim Benzema.

Bale had operated on the margins of the contest up until that point but the Wales winger stormed down the left flank and Ronaldo pulled into space behind Lucas Hernandez, drilling a volley into the turf and beyond Oblak.

The Portuguese did not appear to be carrying an injury, which made his removal even more of a surprise. However, Real have a healthy lead in the tie, making it something of a unusual move by the Real Madrid boss.

Both sides go into the game on the back of important wins in Europe, with Real Madrid winning 3-0 away to Juventus in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final, while Atletico beat Sporting Lisbon 2-0 in the Europa League.


But Antoine Griezmann equalised on the rebound after Vitolo's shot was saved by Keylor Navas.

But the Costa Rica global, who helped his team to a 1-1 draw with Atletico Madrid on Sunday, has no desire to depart the European champions. What we have done in this decade is tremendous, Atletico fans should be proud of how their team is competing. In his 199 games for Atletico so far the Frenchman has scored 107 goals, 24 of which have come in 39 matches this season with one in each of his last four matches. They could well have the title wrapped up by the time they welcome Real Madrid to the Camp Nou for the Clasico next month.

Leaders Barcelona are now 11 points clear of Atleti with seven games remaining, but Simeone said: "I always want to finish first - if not first, then second, if not second, third".
