Antoine Griezmann salvages point in Madrid derbi at Bernabeu

Title out of rech, but pride at stake in Madrid derby

Title out of rech, but pride at stake in Madrid derby

Griezmann, who scored the equaliser in Atletico's 1-1 draw with Real Madrid on Sunday, has been heavily linked with Barcelona but strongly denied rumours claiming he had already agreed to join the La Liga leaders.

Zinedine Zidane has never beaten Atletico Madrid at the Bernabeu in La Liga as manager, with Diego Simeone's side having won three and drawn one of their last four league visits.

They retain their four-point cushion over Real while this was perhaps the flawless result for leaders Barcelona, who are now 11 points clear at the top.

The Welshman was an unused substitute during Real's 3-0 Champions League win over Juventus on Tuesday, but comes in against Diego Simeone's men.

Liverpool's in-form Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain insists: 'There's more to come from me'
Jürgen Klopp was full of praise for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who he says has the "potential and quality" to further his development since joining Liverpool last summer.

Griezmann, who has a 100-million euro ($123 million) buyout clause in his contract, said last month that he would decide on a move before the World Cup which starts on 14 June.

Juanfran was fortunate to see a challenge go unpunished when Kroos darted into the box on the end of a short corner and frustration seemingly lingered for the Germany midfielder as he was booked for a crude hack at Griezmann on halfway.

Atletico Madrid were behind for less than five minutes before Griezmann levelled.

"In the first half they were better, but we then started to link up better in midfield and attack".

Australia's McKeon, who won the race in Glasgow four years ago, finished third. "I'm really grateful that I got that final spot", Jack said.

Madrid remain four points further back in third, unable to close the gap on their neighbours despite Cristiano Ronaldo volleying in his 22nd goal in the fixture in the 53rd minute.

The Frenchman's goal was fairly simple as he slotted the ball into an empty net after Vitolo had taken the ball away from Keylor Navas, but it was his celebrations that once again caught the eye.

Saul bent a shot narrowly wide for Atletico and Real, who brought on Luka Modric and Isco for Mateo Kovacic and Asensio, nearly snatched a late, late victor but Oblak made an excellent save from Sergio Ramos' free kick.

Ronaldo volleyed home Gareth Bale's left-wing cross for his 20th goal in 10 club appearances.
