A draw is probably a fair result. Luis Suarez gave Atletico an early lead with a lovely goal, and they were a few minutes away from putting Real out of the title race when the inspirationl Karim Benzema scored a classy equaliser. If the first half wasn’t great, the second was a cracker.
Atletico will be so frustrated, especially as they had good chances to put the game to bed, but when the dust settles they will realise a draw is still a decent result. It leaves them three points clear of Barcelona and five ahead of Real, with a game in hand on both. Thanks for your company, bye!
That was a beautifully worked goal. Benzema dropped deep to receive possession 30 yards from goal, surged at the defence and quickly tapped the ball through to Casemiro in the area. He drew Oblak and then eased the ball across to give Benzema an open goal.
