Ronaldo's Record Strike Not Enough For Madrid Derby Win

Cristiano Ronaldo

Zinedine Zidane will give Barcelona a taste of its own medicine after dismissing the prospect of Real Madrid players giving the La Liga leader a guard of honour before next month's El Clasico.

While Ronaldo's goal will dominate the headlines, Real were denied the spoils as Antoine Griezmann grabbed an equaliser shortly after, with the game then ending 1-1.

Eyebrows were raised when Ronaldo was withdrawn with 27 minutes remaining, but Zidane insisted the 33-year-old needed a rest.

Simeone's what-we-have-we-hold move nearly backfired when Bale skewed wide, while Sergio Ramos made his regular pitch to be Madrid's last-ditch hero - forcing Oblak to push a wonderful free-kick behind in stoppage time and powering over from the resulting corner.

The Atletico star is clearly a fan of the video game Fortnite and has already given us a few celebrations inspired by the game. Sometimes he needs to rest.

Trump defends immigration laws at tax cut event
The Pentagon said officials had not yet determined how many troops would be deployed to support border security operations. Trump has seized on news reports that the migrant group was traveling toward the U.S.

The Portuguese has now scored 26 goals in his past 14 games for Real and Portugal - and 40 for his club this season in 37 matches. It is true that there is nobody else who does that. We can't sit back or consider approaching it in any other way.

On reflection, Zidane felt the points being shared just about fell into that category.

Ernesto Valverde's team are are now 11 points clear with just seven games left to play. We have many matches, he's a Real Madrid player and is here to stay.

"In the first half, we created chances, but we didn't score".

That does seem a fair point, but it's unlikely Barca will mind too much as they'll probably still be buzzing from the title capture if that does turn out to be the case.
