Atletico beats Real Madrid 1-0 at Santiago Bernabeu
MADRID (AP) Antoine Griezmann scored a goal early in the second half to give Atletico Madrid a 1-0 win over Real Madrid at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium on Saturday, keeping Atletico's title hopes alive and virtually ending the rival's chances in the Spanish league.
The French forward scored with a left-footer in the 53rd minute after a cross by Brazilian left back Filipe Luis, helping Atletico pull within five points of leader Barcelona, which hosts Sevilla on Sunday. Real Madrid could drop 12 points behind Barcelona if the Catalan club wins Sunday.
It was Real Madrid's first defeat at home since a humiliating 4-0 loss to Barcelona. The team had won seven straight at Bernabeu.
Fans loudly jeered Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, calling for his resignation.
