|Carvalho scores Real Madrid´s 1ºst goal|
REAL MADRID defeated 2 - 0 ATLETICO DE MADRID in the big & controversial Madrid "Derby" to retain top spot of the Spanish League ladder. Once again the 11 year dry spell for Atletico continues as Real Madrid played better & deserved the win. As with these types of games, there were penalties not seen on both sides & posts, plenty of them for both sides, but the Atletico fans will feel that they were unfairly treated by the referee.
Real Madrid did the demolition job in the first 30 mins with the first goal by defender CARVALHO in the 13th min & OZIL from a free-kick that was watched as the ball passed everyone into the net.
