Real Madrid coach Zidane: No Barcelona guard of honour; they broke tradition!

Cristiano Ronaldo Real Madrid Lionel Messi Juventus

"These are decisions", Zidane told the media.

Diego Simeone's side had attacked fleetingly up until that point but Griezmann, equalising as he did in the corresponding fixture last season, ensured Madrid's lead only lasted four minutes.

After already dreaming up a Liverpool asking price of €200m, Don Balon decided that Real Madrid wouldn't pay such an amount, so could instead send Gareth Bale to Anfield as part payment.

This was yet another performance that showed exactly why he has been attracting admiring glances from around Europe.

Madrid captain Sergio Ramos nearly grabbed an injury-time victor from a free kick, but Slovenian goalkeeper Oblak again came to Atletico's rescue by tipping the curling shot over the bar.

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

Ronaldo got the opener before the five-time Balon d'Or victor struck with an incredible overhead kick later on.

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.

Tour bus driver charged with DUI after crash enroute to The Masters
A charter bus carrying more than a dozen passengers overturned Thursday morning on Interstate 20 in Georgia's Columbia County. A lot of individuals were shot to hospitals however, that the patrol says that the injuries were not lifethreatening.

The Portuguese did not appear to be carrying an injury, which made his removal even more of a surprise.

The Frenchman has won two straight Champions League titles for Los Blancos since he took over from Rafael Benitez in 2016. However, Real have a healthy lead in the tie, making it something of a odd move by the Real Madrid boss.

In the 88th-minute, and with Los Blancos searching for a victor, Diego Godin diverted the initial attack before Lucas Hernandez smashed the ball high and out of Atletico's penalty area. "The important thing is that we are still comfortably poised at the top of the table".

He said: "They're all important for me and he'll be an important player until the end of the season".

Zinedine Zidane denied Real Madrid are over-reliant on Cristiano Ronaldo after they were held to a 1-1 derby draw against Atletico Madrid.

If you want a good response to pretty much anything related to either Real Madrid or Barcelona, Gerard Pique is your man.

He led his team to the final of the Europa League Cup final two seasons ago and they now have one leg in the Champions League semi final after beating Manchester City 3-0 last week.
