Real Madrid for the first time ever has gotten the better of bitter rivals Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano.
Gareth Bale who had a good game in the derby win also broke a record with his 100th goal at the club as he helped secure a 3-1 win to move them up to second in LaLiga.
The Whites have being in a rich vein of form lately as they continued in another resilient display to beat Diego Simeone’s men on their own turf for the first time since their meeting at the Vicente Calderon in November 2016.
Atletico conceded twice in a first half at the Wanda for the first time, as Sergio Ramos’ penalty added to Casemiro’s spectacular opener after Antoine Griezmann had equalised, with a little thanks to VAR.
Madrid looked in control at the back under pressure in the second half and finished off their opponents 16 minutes from time through substitute Bale’s landmark goal, before Thomas Partey’s late sending off.
