Real started strong in the first half playing some of their best football seen in a while. But Atletico slowly closed down all Real’s options the the match finally failed to live up to expectations. All to play for in the Bernabeu next Wednesday and you wonder if Real have the faith to go through to the next round after failing to win in the last 6 matches against their cross-town rivals.
