Real Madrid failed to maintain their three points gap at the top of Spanish La Liga though they are still sitting top of table despite only grabbing a draw on their last fixture against Atletico Madrid. Putting on excellent performances in recent matches, Los Blancos looking to repeat that run of good form when they found themselves getting in front after only three minutes of play through Karim Benzema's effort. Atletico didn't give up easily though as they continue to pounce forward and eventually got back on level terms on 28 minutes from Koke's finish.
Things suddenly turned into the home team's favor as they created more problems for Madrid's back line before eventually turning things around just before half time break through Gabi. The tension continue to boil on that tie, though none of the players on the pitch got a red card, but that game looked really dirty at times. Los Blancos eventually managed to overcome the pressure and got back on level terms eight minutes from time from Cristiano Ronaldo's finish.
