Real Madrid’s hope of winning the La Liga title is now shaken as Atletico Madrid came from behind to draw 1-1 at the Santiago Benabeu on Saturday.

After goalless first half, Pepe headed in from Toni Kroos free-kick in the 52nd minute of the game to make it 1-0 for Madrid.

When the match appears to be going Madrid’s favour, Antoine Griezmann scored a super equaliser in the 85th minute of the game to silence the 80,000 spectators at the stadium.
