Simeone Proud of Atletico's Madrid Derby Fight

Simeone Proud of Atletico's Madrid Derby Fight”

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.

Real won the first leg 3-0 in Turin, with Ronaldo scoring twice, including an excellent bicycle kick.

But the lead was short-lived as Antoine Griezmann fired home just four minutes later for a share of the spoils at the Bernabeu.

The Red Devils had overturned a two-goal deficit to lead 3-2, but Young felled Aguero with a reckless tackle in the 18-yard area. Vincent Kompany , the oft-injured City talisman in defense, scored the opener in the 25th minute.

Given that both sides have European quarter finals in midweek, it remains to be seen how the managers approach the selection of their respective elevens.

Zinedine Zidane has by no means overwhelmed Atletico Madrid on the Bernabeu in La Liga as supervisor, with Diego Simeone's facet having gained three and drawn one among their final 4 league visits. Bale was given the freedom of the Bernabeu by the Atletico defence on the left wing and he made them pay by sending an inch-perfect cross into Ronaldo to score with a well-taken volley at the back post - his 650th career goal.

Astonishingly though an nearly nonexistent Antoine Griezmann then levelled the scores just four minutes later with a rasping shot after playing a neat one-two with Vitolo.

But the result is of little use to Atletico, now 11 points behind Barca with just seven rounds of the Primera Division remaining. Despite the considerable deficit, Partey still harbours hopes of catching the Catalans, especially if his team can overcome its foe from across the capital.

The Frenchman also admitted that the training he did in the summer prepared him "really well", physically, for the season ahead, and he is now reaping the rewards at the business end of the season and with the World Cup in Russian Federation looming. It leaves Los Blancos four points adrift of Diego Simeone's side, while they will now drop to fourth position if Valencia beat Espanyol later on Sunday.

"Teams like PSG and Juve have seen how hard it is to face them".
