The derby started at a strong playing pace among both teams. The whites were the first to hit the rival goal but ours were not far behind and the first one to give a warning was Correa with a shot that went wide narrowly. Later, half into the first half, Griezmann had the best chance with a penalty kick of Ramos to Tiago, but the shot of the Frenchman was guessed by Navas to deviate to the corner.

The match carried on very intensely but without more changes on the scoreboard. In the second half, Atlético took a step forward and Fernando Torres warned with a shot that went by the goal of Navas. The team kept approaching the white goal but needed to get the ball into the Real Madrid goal. As the minutes went by, the white team accumulated players in its box and seven minutes from the end came the tie. Vietto scored into the net a good breakaway from Jackson on the left and with a heel touch from Griezmann, the Argentinian equalled the contest.

Despite our attempts to uneven the balance, the match ended with a tie. Keylor Navas saved his team with a great save to a drive by of Jackson Martínez in the final stretch of the match. Atlético was superior in the second half but lacked completing the work with a second goal.
