Zinedine Zidane: 'Real Madrid need to improve concentration'

Torres should have equalised when sent through one-on-one with Navas, but Madrid's goalkeeper rushed out to deny him, before Griezmann's late intervention earned third-placed Atletico a point.

Atleti were finally beaten 52 minutes in when Pepe latched onto a Toni Kross free-kick, powering his header into the corner to give Real the lead.

Zidane has seen speculation mount his position could be under scrutiny should Real fail to go on to deliver the La Liga title.

It was a tough draw for Real Madrid, but expecting them to just come out and dominate their rivals is foolish.

Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone ha admitted he does not know Antoine Griezmann's next move amid serious interest from Manchester United.

Pepe will wait as long as possible to be offered a new Real Madrid deal as he reiterated his desire to stay at the club, although he accepts the decision over his future is not in his hands.

Recent reports said that Real Madrid wanted to add him to their squad in the 2018 summer transfer window but selling their best player to their biggest rivals will be the last thing Atletico Madrid will do. "I believe in my teammates and the coach", said a bullish Griezmann on Thursday. The French manager highlighted the good work of his team, their opponent, his continuity in Real Madrid's bench and other important topics.

Atletico can turn with confidence still high back to the Champions League, where it hosts Leicester on Tuesday in the quarterfinals. He has won every trophy there is to win twice during his 10 years at the club: 2 Champions Leagues, 2 Leagues, 2 Clñub World Cups.

Pepe couldn't finish the match and Kroos was replaced in the 75th minute.

However, after Joaquin Correa again put Sevilla ahead just after the half hour there was no way back for the visitors, although they tried to find an equalizer until Wassim Ben Yedder sealed Sevilla's first win in six games. You never know what can happen in football, but moving from Atletico to Real, I don't know if it is achievable.
