Impressive Real Madrid beat Atlético to continue run of form

Real Madrid continued their impressive run of seven league wins on the bounce by defeating city rival, Atlético Madrid 2-0 at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.

Following a few attacks from Atlético Madrid, it was the Blancos that broke the deadlock in the 16th minute, after Karim Benzema hit a well-struck half volley past Jan Oblak. In-form Vinicius Junior created the assist.

Just like the first half, it was the away side that started the second half on a high foot, but Real Madrid got their second go in the 57th minute following a swift counterattack, and Vinicius gave a lovely pass to Marco Asensio, who finished with a low shot into the net.

Real Madrid restored their eight points lead at the top of the log, while Atlético Madrid remain fourth on the La Liga table.
