Free to Atleti on the edge of the area, Casemiro the miscreant as he shoves an arm into Lemar then gives him a boot on the floor trying to play the ball. There’ll be no time to take it though as the ref blows for the half!
Oblak! That could be worth a title! Benzema has the goal at his mercy and Oblak makes a glorious double save to keep Atleti 1-0 up! Excellent keeping from the Slovakia stopper.
Madrid are finding it very difficult to break through Atleti’s back line despite the injection of fresh legs. The home side are pretty comfortable at the back and look dangerous every time they go forward.
The Suárez-Carrasco connection has been a thorn in Madrid’s right side this afternoon and the two combine again with the Uruguayan attempting an overhead that doesn’t quite come together.
Atleti threaten again as Suárez dinks a ball over the top but Carrasco can’t get his boot around it under pressure from Vázquez, who has been as solid as a rock at right back so far.
The striker capitalizes on a lucky bounce in the area, which Casemiro tees up for the Frenchman to stroke home from close range!
The title race remains wide open after the top three’s fixtures this weekend. Barça’s 2-0 victory at Osasuna has taken Ronald Koeman’s side to within three points of Atlético while Karim Benzema’s late equalizer today has kept Madrid firmly in the hunt.
