Derby hero Griezmann won't rule out Real Madrid move

Doyle BarkerApr 11, 2017

Real dominated the Madrid derby on Saturday night but were denied victory by a late goal from Atletico striker Antoine Griezmann, reports Xinhua news agency.

Moments later Ronaldo couldn't believe his eyes when his fierce goal-bound effort was turned to safety by Stefan Savic's incredible headed clearance from under his own crossbar.

Just when it looked like one goal would be enough, Griezmann stunned the Bernabeu with his 23rd goal in all competitions this season - the France global expertly firing home from substitute Angel Correa's precise through ball.

Atletico remain in third place after the draw, although just a point ahead of Sevilla in fourth, who beat Deportivo 4-2.

Real defender Dani Carvajal then fired his shot over the crossbar, with the Bernabeu faithful in full voice.

'For me it's crucial that Griezmann stays because he's a genius.

With the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale as their front three, the home side are certainly the favourites to take the three points in this one and can be backed at around 8/11.

Real Madrid were generally in control, however and looked happy to move the ball around as Atletico searched in vain for a chance.

Now the Frenchman and his team-mates turn their attentions to the Champions League, with the first leg of their quarter-final against Leicester coming up on Wednesday. And now with Real Madrid out of the way, completing his transfer will prove to be much easier.

After the draw with Real Madrid, he told reporters: "I don't know where he's going to go, but I'm thrilled with how he plays, with his enthusiasm".

Real Madrid face fierce rivals Atletico at the Santiago Bernabeu, here's how you can catch the action.

However, Atletico responded to falling behind and should have been level on the hour mark when Yannick Carrasco played in Fernando Torres clear on goal. "We needed to defend more closely and with more energy, but physically we're fine".
