Real Madrid lost the Madrid Derby, and probably its title dreams.
Antoine Griezmann’s 53rd minute finish of a neat bit of passing lifted Atletico Madrid to within five points of first place Barcelona.
The loss condemns Real to a minimum nine points back of the top (Barca hosts Sevilla on Sunday).
How’s this for a stat?
