Ronaldo trained with his team-mates on Saturday ahead of the Madrid derby against Atletico

The result keeps second-placed Atletico four points above Real - but 11 points behind leaders Barcelona, who beat Leganes 3-1 on Saturday.

Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann has rubbished reports claiming a move to Barcelona is already in place but says he wants his future sorted before the World Cup in Russian Federation later this year.

Ronaldo's afternoon came to a premature end when he was replaced by Karim Benzema with 27 minutes remaining, and - with the visitors enjoying their best spell of the game - Isco and Luka Modric soon joined the fray.

"Griezmann is a great player, he is very strong in these moments mentally", he added.

Following loan spells at Mallorca and Almeria, he was drafted into the Rojiblancos in the 2015-16 season, making 13 league appearances involving three starts.

"I think the presence of (Diego) Costa has helped him a lot, having strength around him which allows him to be free". A win for Real would boost their chances of securing a top-four finish or even securing the second place of the league.

"I am not leaving happy as we wanted to win", he said.

Marcelo was then the latest player to have his head in his hands, as he struck the crossbar in the closing stages of the first half with a curling strike on his weaker right foot. "But I am leaving with a sensation of bringing little away, really".

Zinedine Zidane's side are third, with Valencia hot on their heels and they are a point with eight games left to play.

"We are up against two superpowers, like Madrid and Barcelona", he told a post-match news conference. "Teams like PSG and Juve have seen how hard it is to face them [in the Champions League]".

"What we have done in this decade is tremendous, Atletico fans should be proud of how their team is competing".

"We have to do our work well and play a complete game".

Past year he had said that there was "a six in ten chance" he would move to Manchester United only to sign a contract extension with Atletico.
