Match Report: Atletico Madrid 1-3 Real Madrid (Watch All Goals)
Gareth Bale scored his 100th Real Madrid goal as they beat Atletico in the Madrid derby to overtake their rivals into second place.
Casemiro’s overhead kick handed Real an early lead (16) only for Antoine Griezmann to peg them back (25).
But Ramos restored the lead just before the break, confidently dispatching a penalty into the bottom-left corner after Jose Gimenez clumsily tripped Vinicius, with VAR adjudging it to have happened just inside the box.
Gareth Bale made it three after converting a Luka Modric’s pass to ensure the win.\
Atletico’s fate was sealed with 10 minutes remaining when Thomas received a second booking for catching Toni Kroos.
The win inflicts a first home defeat this season on Atletico, and means Real move five points behind leaders Barcelona, who are in action at Athletic Bilbao on Sunday.
