Real Madrid 1-1 Atletico Madrid: Honours even as Antoine Griezmann snatches a late draw for Atletico [Best Tweets]

Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid played out a highly-entertaining 1-1 draw in the Madrid Derby last night after Pepe’s opener was cancelled out by a late goal from big-game specialist Antoine Griezmann.

Madrid looked all set for a victory before Griezmann’s dramatic equaliser and despite having the lion’s share of possession they were unable to get past the brilliant Jan Oblak, who pulled off several fine saves to deny Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema.

Pepe was the man of the match on the night and Twitter was quick to show appreciation for the Portuguese defender who might have played his last game for Los Blancos, after being forced off with an injury in the second half after an unfortunate coming together with Toni Kroos.

Jan Oblak also received huge amounts of praise after putting in yet another brilliant performance for Atletico Madrid. Stefan Savic’s incredible goal-line clearance also prompted a huge reaction on Twitter.

The praise for Antoine Griezmann was inevitable after the Atletico Madrid man stepped up in a big game yet again, with United fans calling for his signature after yet another fine performance. Even Barcelona fans were thankful to the Frenchman after seeing their fierce rivals drop points.
