Real Madrid's Pepe fractures two ribs in derby draw

Real Madrid's wait for a home league win over Atletico Madrid has stretched to a fourth game after being pegged back late on in a 1-1 draw at the Estadio Bernabeu.

Zidane has seen speculation mount his position could be under scrutiny should Real fail to go on to deliver the La Liga title.

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.

Atletico, though, remained risky 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.

Oblak made another terrific save to deny Benzema early in the second half, before Pepe opened the scoring.

Its a busy day of football in La Liga this afternoon, as Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid go head to head at the Santiago Bernabéu, with the match available to watch online from Spain (KO 15:15). It looked as if that chance was never going to come until Angel Correa slipped the ball to Griezmann and the French striker did the rest.

"Don't ask me how to stop him, you just have to admit that he's a great player who scores goals", said the Frenchman of his compatriot.

Madrid travel to Bayern Munich for the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final on Wednesday.

Griezmann scored a late equaliser in the recently concluded Madrid derby to secure a vital draw for Atletico Madrid.

Keeper Jan Oblak was forced into a number of saves that helped keep Atleti in the game, while a remarkable clearance from Stefan Savic following a Cristiano Ronaldo strike kept the scores level at the break, only for Portuguese global Pepe to put the home side ahead with the opener just after the restart. "Their midfielders, their backs. they all know how to play". It won't be easy though, as Atletico have the league's joint-best defensive record, conceding 23 goals from 30 games played which is quite impressive.
