Real Madrid failed to grab a win in the first leg of their Spanish Super Cup battle against Atletico Madrid as both teams shared a 1-1 draw at Santiago Bernebau.
Eager to maintain their positive home match up against Atletico, Madrid immediately took control of proceedings, but overcoming Diego Simeone's men were far from an easy task.
No goals were scored during the first 45 minutes and things got rather irritating for Madrid since their star man, Cristiano Ronaldo picked up an injury in that half.
In the second half, Los Blancos continue to dominate despite playing without Ronaldo and their dominance was eventually rewarded with a goal from James Rodriguez on 81 minutes.
However, a slack defending on corner gave Atletico a shout back into that tie as Raul Garcia nodded home an equalizing goal two minutes before the full 90 minutes mark.
