  • Ziendine Zidane

But Antoine Griezmann equalised for Atletico few minutes later after Ronaldo's opener to secure a share of the points for his side. Madrid's captain headed the resulting corner just over.

Ahead of Wednesday's Champions League quarterfinal final second leg, Zidane rotated heavily, with Luka Modric and Karim Benzema among those rested.

"Errors will have to be reduced by the team and since we know how they play, we just have to go for the victory this weekend".

Madrid remain four points further back in third, unable to close the gap on their neighbours despite Cristiano Ronaldo volleying in his 22nd goal in the fixture in the 53rd minute.

Is Hungary's Victor Orban popular or a populist?
The strongest opposition party is the formerly far-right Jobbik, which has recast its image as a more moderate nationalist force. After casting his vote in a wealthy district of Budapest , Orban said: "From here I will go and take part in mobilizing voters".

France worldwide Griezmann, 27, has now scored on each of his last three league visits to the Bernabeu and has 18 goals in his last 20 games in all competitions. "We also have our good players that they should be anxious of".

The ex-Manchester United forward broke the deadlock with a stunning volley, before the 27-year-old fired home from close range four minutes later. Bale completed the 90 minutes, but his performance only really confirmed that the €101 million galactico is mostly a back-up option at the moment.

Atleti were then on the charge and Koke should have put them ahead before the withdrawals of Ronaldo and Diego Costa for either side saw the offensive threat subside - much to the delight of those watching on in Catalonia.

It was reward for an excellent all-round display in a linking role between midfield and centre-forward Diego Costa, one that Madrid found hard to deal with.

Atletico visit Real at the Santiago Bernabeu today, having gone four matches without a defeat in the league at their opponents' backyard.

It also left leaders Barcelona 11 points better off than second-placed Atletico at the top of the table with seven games to play.

Atletico won La Liga in 2013-14 but have finished third behind either Barcelona and Real Madrid in all other years since 2012-13, which was the team's first full season under coach Diego Simeone.
