  • Partey: Madrid derby 'more important' for title-chasing Atletico

Ronaldo's goal against Atletico was his 20th in his last 10 games in all competitions.

"He is a great player, he is very strong in these moments mentally", Simeone told his postmatch news conference.

"He did not start the season well, he knows that". Nowadays he needs it and every time it does him good.

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

It was a lead Zinedine Zidane's men merited after they had the better of a first half in which Toni Kroos had a strong penalty appeal rejected and Marcelo hit the crossbar. "But I am leaving with a sensation of bringing little away, really".

RBI keeps key rate unchanged
Scheduled Commercial Banks (SCBs), excluding regional rural banks (RRBs), were required to implement Ind AS from April 1, 2018. Moreover, the intent of the policy seems neutral and sends signals for supporting growth in near-term, he added.

Atletico remain second on 68 points, four ahead of Madrid who occupy the third spot with seven games left to play in the league.

Simeone, who famously led Atletico to a stunning title triumph in 2013-14, pointed to Madrid's excellent recent performances against Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus in the Champions League to underline the impressive nature of his team remaining unbeaten at the Santiago Bernabeu in Spain's top-flight for a fifth consecutive season. What we have done in this decade is tremendous, Atletico fans should be proud of how their team is competing.

ANTOINE GRIEZMANN has insisted he is NOT in talks with Barcelona about making a move to the Catalans, but he has revealed he hopes to resolve his Atletico Madrid future before the World Cup. "It was a shame we didn't get more from it but we could have even lost the game at the end".

Previous 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.
