Griezmann leaves it late to deny Real in derby

Diego Simeone believes Atletico Madrid need top scorer Antoine Griezmann in top form if they are to once again derail city rivals Real Madrid's La Liga title challenge on Saturday.

That had looked to be enough to secure victory, but Atletico, who have won at the Bernabeu for the last three seasons, hit back when Griezmann slotted in with just five minutes left as the spoils were shared.

The draw leaves Real three points above Barcelona in the table, with the latter due to play Malaga on Saturday night, with Real to have a game in hand after full time in that game.

While highlighting the effort by his defence, Atletico coach Diego Simeone lauded Griezmann for his "passion, work ethic and ability to move in the box".

But the best praise came from the rival manager.

The abuse was reportedly not only physical - Belafonte would allegedly yell things like "die b***h" - but it was also sexual. He ultimately forced the nanny to get an abortion and paid her over $300,000 of Mel B's money "for alleged nanny services ".

"You can't wonder how to stop him", Zidane said about Griezmann.

"Madrid always opens its doors to great players".

Atletico can turn with confidence still high to the Champions League, where it hosts Leicester on Tuesday in the quarterfinals.

Ramos was disappointed with Madrid's result but is now looking forward to a significant two weeks of the season, with league matches against Sporting Gijon and Barca plus a Champions League quarter-final tie with Bayern Munich coming up.

It was a vintage performance by Simeone's Atletico.

Likely being the operative word. "Absolutely not for any political purposes, to spy, expose, anything", she added. Although there is still no proof that the president was subject to a wiretap or any sort of direct surveillance.

It took strong saves from Jan Oblak and a remarkable clearance from Stefan Savic following a Cristiano Ronaldo strike to keep the scores level in the first half, but Pepe made the home side's pressure count with a fine header early in the second.

Atletico, though, remained unsafe on the counter-attack, as Griezmann made the most of a loose pass from Sergio Ramos and sent a low shot goalwards which Navas pushed behind at full stretch.

However, no goals were exchanged during the first 45 minutes.

Sevilla got a goal in the first minute by Stevan Jovetic, and overcame a double by Gael Kakuta, to end a six-game winless streak.
