Atletico Madrid’s supersub, Luciano Vietto, scored a late leveller in a 1-1 draw in the derby match against Real Madrid. The Argentinean rescued a point for the hosts as he cancelled Karim Benzema’s goal to equal the scoreline.
Regarded as one of the most important matches in the league stage with “Giant implications” for the league as well as Barcelona, SB Nation reported that the Blaugrana would have a look at where they stand and how to go about things in the future after their defeat against Sevilla on Saturday.
According to SkySports, the 21 year old summer signing, Vietto scored his first goal for his side in the 83rd minute of the game to deny their derby opponent the winning points.
Topping the La Liga charts is Villarreal with 16 points from 7 games, followed by Real Madrid, Celta Vigo and Barcelona with 15 points and Atletico de Madrid at number 5 with 13 points.
Real Madrid would see this draw as a failed opportunity to grab the top spot in the table as both Villarreal and Barcelona loosing their respective matches, the previous weekend.
The host side were denied too many opportunities to convert their score into an winning one as they missed their penalty shot followed by a brilliant save by the Costa Rica Goalkeeper.
Last season, Atletico Madrid had nailed the Real side 4-0 with Benetez ensuring the visitors not to suffer the same fate this season. Earlier Ronaldo had missed a goal which headed off target just two minutes into the match.
