A “provocative” goal deprives Real Madrid of revenge against Atletico

Real Madrid failed to maintain their lead, drawing 1-1 with Atletico Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu in the 23rd round of La Liga.

The Royal Club took the lead in the 20th minute through Brahim Diaz, who was not scheduled to start had it not been for Vinicius Junior’s injury in the warm-up.

The match referee refused to award a controversial penalty kick to Jude Bellingham in the second half, and video technology confirmed his decision, which greatly angered the Royal Club fans.

At the last minute, Marcos Llorente scored the adjustment goal in a very strange way, in a complete absence of defensive control, bringing the La Liga title struggle back to life again.

Real Madrid reached the 58th point, two points ahead of runner-up Girona, 8 points ahead of third Barcelona, and 10 points ahead of fourth-place Atletico.

It seems that the Royal Club failed to take revenge on its neighbor, Atletico Madrid, after Diego Simeone’s squad eliminated its counterpart Carlo Ancelotti’s squad from the round of 16 in the King’s Cup by winning 4-2.

This was the fourth match between the two teams this season, as Atletico won the league 3-1 in the first leg, then Real Madrid won the Super Cup 5-3, and the Rojiblancos won in the cup, and now there was a tie for the first time between them.
