"The goals will come, I have no doubt about that".

On the extent of Bale's injury, Madrid boss Julen Lopetegui said: "He had discomfort in his adductor at half-time and as a precaution he didn't come out for the second half".

Atletico coach Diego Simeone had a different view of the game when speaking to the press, with the Argentine saying that on balance the draw had been a fair result as each team had dominated one half.

Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann has responded to Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos' comments after he labelled the Frenchman "ignorant".

The Spanish club stated: "After observing the different use and consultation that has been made of the VAR in similar plays in several matches during this day, Atletico Madrid will request this Monday a clarification to the Technical Committee of Referees on this type of situation". I guess they did not stop the play because they saw it in a normal play, because it's interpretable.

Real Madrid is tied with FC Barcelona on top of the table with 14 points through seven matches, Lopetegui is surely disappointed his team was unable to take advantage of Barca dropping points in back-to-back matches.
