In a thrilling climax to a fiercely contested La Liga derby, Marcos Llorente snatched a dramatic 93rd-minute equalizer for Atletico Madrid, denying Real Madrid all three points and keeping alive their faint title hopes. The 1-1 draw at the Santiago Bernabeu was the third Madrid derby in less than a month, with each team claiming a victory in the Copa del Rey and Spanish Super Cup.

Diaz Opens the Scoring for Madrid

Despite Vinicius Junior’s late withdrawal due to neck discomfort, Real Madrid took the lead through Brahim Diaz. The former Manchester City midfielder capitalized on Atletico’s poor clearance in the 20th minute to slot the ball home, marking his fourth league goal of the season.

Atletico Battle Back

Atletico Madrid refused to lie down, creating several chances throughout the game. Axel Witsel and Stefan Savic came close, with Savic having a goal controversially disallowed for offside early in the second half. Jan Oblak made a crucial save from Rodrygo, keeping Atletico in the game.

Llorente’s Heroics Secure a Point

With time running out, it seemed Real Madrid were heading for victory. However, Llorente had other ideas. In the 93rd minute, he capitalized on a defensive lapse from Carvajal and Nacho Fernandez, heading home Memphis Depay’s flick-on to spark wild celebrations amongst the Atletico fans.

Title Race Wide Open

The draw leaves Real Madrid two points clear of Girona at the top of the table, with Atletico languishing in fourth, 10 points adrift. However, with Girona facing a daunting trip to the Bernabeu next week, the title race remains wide open. Llorente’s late heroics have thrown the cat amongst the pigeons and set the stage for an exciting conclusion to the La Liga season.
