It was followed by Antoine Griezman‘s header in the 17th minute, adding salt to the wounds of the Los Blancos. Atletico Madrid delivered the final blow with Morata’s brace shortly after half-time.

However, 33-year-old Toni Kroos tried to set up a chance for a comeback with a goal before half-time, which was unsuccessful. Real Madrid were caught under pressure with another disallowed goal. Atletico Madrid gave a tough fight to their neighbors in a well-deserved win for Diego Simeone‘s team. Toni Kroos was the standout performer for Madrid amidst rumors of his discontentment at the club.

Carlo Ancelotti‘s tactical choices are scrutinized as fans question his approach to the game. Antonio Rudiger and David Alaba both struggled against Simeone’s puppets as Morata bagged the man of the match. Atletico has pushed Real to third place in the league, making a statement.
