It’s Real Madrid Vs JuventusThere was a dramatic change in the Madrid weather but not in the fortunes of the two Madrid clubs.

It rained heavily in the final 10 minutes or so. It intensified too but the game went on as Atletico once again bit the dust and Real advanced.

It’s Real Madrid Vs JuventusTurkey’s Referee Cuney Çakir did a wonderful job in what essentially was a very tricky tussle between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid at the latter’s home at the Vicente Calderon.

Draped in the red and white striped colours, the all-white fans were outnumbered as they perched themselves up the terraces to see Atletico take a shock 2-0 lead just at the end of the first quarter.

Real struggled to contain the attacking intent of their hometown rivals. With Antoine Griezmann and Fernando Torres playing together, Atletico’s game plan was evident – attack, attack and attack more. And they reaped rich dividends too. 

But no sooner Atletico clipped Real’s 3-0 first leg advantage to 2-3 and it appeared to mean little, Real got into their grooves, seized control and then pulled one back through Isco.

But in the meantime they had to endure a worried time as the Atletico players indulged in a lot of physical play, tripping, shoving and even kicking their rivals at every opportunity.

Cakir, however dealt with everything as it should be. He was very correct when he awarded Atletico a penalty after Varane brought down Torres inside the area.  Griezmann was lucky to see his rather feeble shot graze the hands of Kailor Navas and land inside the net. 

Cakir had to book Godin, Gabs and Ramos for dissent as they charged at him questioning everything. But the Turkish official was there at the right spot at the right time to be fully in control of the game. 

The players soon realized that there was a no-nonsense man handling them and things quietened down considerably.

As it came back, Isco, the best player on view, tucked it into the net for a crucial away goal. But in the end it did not matter despite Real making a lot of blunders as their game bordered on overconfidence. Navas was forced into a double save too but in the end, Real scraped past a very determined Atletico.
