Ronaldo, Griezmann On Target As Atletico Hold Real Madrid

Ronaldo, Griezmann On Target As Atletico Hold Real Madrid

Ronaldo scored as Real Madrid and Atletico played out a 1-1 draw at the Bernabeu.

The 31-year-old was eventually beaten by Antoine Griezmann as the France ace cancelled out Cristiano Ronaldo's opener and kept the four-point gap between the teams intact.

Following loan spells at Mallorca and Almeria, he was drafted into the Rojiblancos in the 2015-16 season, making 13 league appearances involving three starts. "It is not easy to reinvent yourself on the run, as he has done".

Oblak had to be quick off the mark eight minutes later to block Raphael Varane's effort at point-blank range after he had controlled Kroos' free-kick, but opposite number Keylor Navas proved equally resilient when he got a firm hand to Diego Costa's low drive after he had broken free. A win for Atletico would distance them from Real by seven points, while Real can climb to within a point of their Madrid rivals with a win.

"I know most of African countries are behind me and supporting me, so I don't want to disappoint them", he said.

Zinedine Zidane's side had the better of the first half and were close to a 10th-minute breakthrough as Ronaldo was unable to get a telling touch to Gareth Bale's flick-on.

In the posting about the seizure, the department had originally said more information would be made public on Friday evening. In 2016, Backpage's CEO Carl Ferrer was arrested in Houston on pimping charges, states NPR; they were later dismissed.

An early league win may also help their Champions League hopes, as they will be able to rest players for the most crucial games.

"Yes, I think that I am going to leave Madrid at the end of the season but to go home with my family to relax", Navas told BeIN Sports Spain.

Atletico (second place; 67 points) and Real (third place; 63 points) have little chance of catching Barcelona, but they'll battle it out to finish as high as they can behind the Catalan club. "In Europe, teams like Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus have seen how hard it is to face them".

The Atletico star is clearly a fan of the video game Fortnite and has already given us a few celebrations inspired by the game.

Past year he had said that there was "a six in ten chance" he would move to Manchester United only to sign a contract extension with Atletico.
