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

Leaders Barcelona face Leganes at the Camp Nou

One player certain to start is striker, Antoine Griezmann who will make his 200th appearance for the club.

Ronaldo continued a phenomenal 2018 when he volleyed Madrid into a deserved 53rd-minute lead at the Santiago Bernabeu - his 40th goal in all competitions this season.

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.

Real Madrid is now third with 63 points, while the Rojiblancos are second with 67 points, behind the leaders, FC Barcelona.

"It is a pity as we had many chances". The Welshman supplied the cross for Ronaldo's equaliser but, in truth, he was quiet for long periods here, a pale shadow of his confident, marauding best.

Ronaldo scores the opener. However, the referee waved away the German playmaker's protests.

And Diego Simeone's side nearly netted immediately after, but Koke's attempt was brilliantly kept out by the Costa Rican global.

The home side ended the first period on the front foot, and came close to taking the lead in the 42nd minute when Marcelo curled the ball towards the top corner, but the left-back's effort rattled the woodwork before Oblak kept out a strike from Vazquez moments later.

The Portuguese forward got his goal when Atletico's back-up left-back Lucas Hernandez lost the flight of missed completely Bale's looping cross.

Atletico have exclusively completed above their extra illustrious neighbors as soon as within the final 22 years, but heading into this weekend's sport they maintain a 4 level benefit over Zine dine Zidane's males.

Real were nearly paid to rue their missed opportunities when Koke sent Diego Costa through on goal, but the ex-Chelsea star's near-post attempt was tipped wide by Keylor Navas.

Real were more aggressive in the search for a late victor but Atleti dug in. At the other end, Bale headed wide from near the penalty spot and Sergio Ramos' late free kick brought an excellent stop from Oblak. If only Ronaldo had still been on the field to take it.
