Madrid derby, and Athletico Prevail.

Atlético Madrid`s latest victory puts Real Madrid six points behind Barcelona and four points behind the 'Rojiblancos' with only three games played this season.

'Los Blancos' have suffered two defeats in the first three games of their league battle.

Where as, Cholo Simeone's team continue to make history. Atletico Madrid had never won two consecutive league games at the Santiago Bernabéu. They prevailed last season with a 1-0 victory at the Bernabéu, and also with a 2-1 win last night with goals from Tiago and Arda Turan.

We can say it`s obvious they no longer see the derby in the same way they used to. It wasn't long ago they went 14 years without beating their city rivals. but they have come out on the winning side against them on four occasions in just over a year.

Few weeks ago, Atletico beat Real in the cup final at the Bernabéu, in last year's league fixture at the same venue, and in the second leg of the Spanish Super Cup three weeks ago.
