- Los Blancos win the Madrid Derby
Real Madrid’s great momentum continued with a spectacular win against city rivals Atletico Madrid.
Casemiro scored the opener for Real Madrid in the 15th minute. Toni Kroos cross from corner kick found Casemiro in the box and he smashed it in the corner, impossibl for Oblak to save.
Zidane’s men were dominant throughout the match and if not for a couple of great Oblak saves, would have scored the second goal much earlier.
The second goal came in the second half when Dani Carvajal caught the deflection from the corner kick and fired a rocket of a shot that hit the post and bounced of Oblak to go in. It was ruled as an own goal, but Dani Carvajal did 99% of the work there.
The title for La Liga race is now closer, as Real Madrid climb to third spot and have only three points less than La Liga leaders Atletico.
