Atletico Madrid 1-1 Real Madrid:

By: Denis Kayongo

Karim Benzema’s late equaliser rescued a 1-1 draw for Real Madrid at rivals Atletico Madrid and extended their unbeaten run in El Derbi to 10 LaLiga matches.

Luis Suarez’s 10th league strike against Madrid had appeared enough for a victory, yet missed chances came back to bite Diego Simeone’s men as the long-serving Atletico Madrid coach was denied a club-record 309th win in the job.

Benzema, fit again to captain the side, marked his 371st LaLiga appearance – a record among Madrid’s non-Spanish players – with an 88th-minuteEqualizer to maintain the champions’ interest in the title race.

Madrid stay third, five points behind Atletico Madrid, but Barcelona are now within three of the leaders, who have one win in five in all competitions.

No player has scored more league goals against Real Madrid than Luis Suarez since he moved to Spain in 2014 and he has made the most of the game’s first chance of note after 15 minutes.

Since the start of February, Atletico have taken just nine points from six matches. In the same spell, Barcelona and Madrid have played the same number of fixtures and claimed 16 and 14 points respectively.
