Karim Benzema scored a late equalizer to keep Real Madrid in a three-way chase for LaLiga’s top spot with Atletico Madrid.
Zinedine Zidane declared Real Madrid “alive” in a LaLiga title race that took an unexpected turn thanks to Karim Benzema’s late equalizer against Atletico Madrid.
Atletico Madrid threatened to go 2-0 up when Benzema smashed the ball past Jan Oblak for a 1-1 draw that keeps Madrid’s title hopes alive.
“It’s well-deserved; we had chances late on. We should have scored more goals, but the good news is that we had a different second half and changed the game. We are indeed alive. We will continue to fight. It is a correct result; we believed it could be recovered until the very end,” Zidane said after the game.
