Atlético Madrid are keeping up the pace with leaders Barcelona, and they recorded a historic 0-1 victory against Real Madrid, a record seventh consecutive win and their first against the old enemy in the league since the turn of the century. Simeone's side did beat their city rivals in last season's cup final however, and this time they went in front in the eleventh minute when Di María gave the ball away to Filipe Luis, Koke passing through for the on-form Diego Costa to beat namesake Diego López. Benzema failed to convert a couple of headers after that, but Tiago headed over at the other end with the goal at his mercy, and López had to be at his best to keep out Miranda and Costa before the break. Ancelotti brought on Bale and Modric at half time, but the visitors continued to dominate, Costa unable to beat the keeper when free on goal, and Koke firing a shot against the crossbar. Madrid's best chance came late on when substitute Morata saw his volley saved by Courtois, but the game ended soon afterwards, and they now find themselves five points behind the leaders at this early stage in the season. The local fans showed their disapproval after the final whistle.
