Felipe Luis: 'Genius' Griezmann will stay at Atletico

Pepe's towering header had put Real in front seven minutes into the second half.

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.

Atletico have won all three of their previous visits to the Santiago Bernabeu in the league and head there after beating Real Sociedad 1-0 on Tuesday to record five consecutive domestic wins for the first time this season.

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.

That was until Correa, who had gone on in the 61st for Saul Niguez, saw the sliver of space between Real defenders Nacho Fernando and Dani Carvajal.

At the other end, Atletico goalkeeper Oblak made a good save to deny Cristiano Ronaldo at his near post, then a brilliant one to keep out a fierce Karim Benzema strike.

Well, because I would like to just like every team would like to sign Griezmann as he is in the top five footballers in the world. We got a draw today, but I think that it's a case of two points dropped.

Having said that, it could prove to be a point gained for Real Madrid, after Barcelona were beaten at Malaga later in the day.
