It was the shock of Matchday 26 in La Liga. Leaders Atlético Madrid had the opportunity to take a big step towards the title by winning against perennial rivals and neighbors Real Madrid in the derby in the Spanish capital.

And the game started off in the best possible way for the Colchoneros with Luis Suarez opening the scoring in the 15th minute. Diego Simeone’s team dominating the opening period 1-0 at the break.

In the second part of the match, the Merengues finally managed to find the loophole in the 88th minute of play thanks to Karim Benzema. 1-1, final score. The residents of Wanda Metropolitano could feed regrets with this result and this equalization at the very end of the match.

Thomas Lemar's partners remain leaders but miss the opportunity to widen the gap with Barça, which remains at three points, with one more game.
