Real Madrid vs. Atletico Madrid (1-1) score, highlights: Draw opens door for Barcelona
Real Madrid dropped two crucial points at home on Saturday in La Liga, drawing Atletico Madrid 1-1 as Antoine Griezmann scored with five minutes to go. Entering the day with a two-point lead over Barcelona, this result for Real means a win by Barca later on Saturday will see the two level on points.
It was Pepe’s header early in the second half that gave the hosts the 1-0 lead.
But Griezmann came to the rescue, finishing an Angel Correa assist to silence the Santiago Bernabeu crowd late.
Real attacked all match long but an inspired performance from Jan Oblak kept Atleti in it until they struck late.
The draw sees Real move to 72 points on the season. Barca can draw level with a win at Malaga, with that match starting at 2:45 p.m. ET.
