It was a vibrant first half that surprisingly had no goals. While Atletico stayed in their box for most of the halftime and match, they were pretty vicious on the counter and Keylor Navas had almost as much to do as Jan Oblak. The second half began and Real Madrid scored the first goal. Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 20th goal in ten games. But Atletico responded quickly and Antoine Griezmann got everything going again only a few minutes later. It was all a bit of a bafflement, after which it remains to be seen if Lucas Vazquez will play in the Champions League next week, after spraying his ankle.

Real is one of the three teams with Barca and Athletic Bilbao In the last 100 years, Atlético has never relegated, while Atlético has had experience in the lower ranks. The last promotion to the Primera División took place in 2001 after two years in the Segunda Division.
