Atletico Madrid 1 Real Madrid 2 LIVE REACTION: Rodrygo & Velverde goals seal derby win as Los Blancos go TOP of La Liga

    Thanks and buenas noches!

    There’s usually fireworks when Atletico square off against Real Madrid and tonight was no different.

    Atletico struggled to get back into the game once Valverde doubled Madrid’s lead towards the end of the first half, but Diego Simeone can be proud of the character that his team showed late on.

    The sparks really started flying once Hermoso was introduced in the 72nd minute.

    He wasted little time in putting his stamp on the contest and it was his goal that gave Atletico hope.

    However, Hermoso’s red card towards the end of normal time effectively put an end to the contest.

    Real Madrid were in control of the contest for long periods and limited Atletico to half-chances and shots from distance.

    They were in cruise control for most of the second half and were perhaps unfortunate to concede a freak goal that took some of the shine off the result.

    Atletico will travel to Sevilla after the international break as they look to climb the table.

    Real Madrid will host Osasuna as they look to maintain their perfect record this season.

    Thanks again for joining us for another exciting Madrid derby. Adios!
