Real Madrid are still the team to beat in the Spanish La Liga after the immediate past European champions maintained their position at the top of the table despite the draw recorded in their Madrid Derby clash with Atletico Madrid.
The Madrid Derby clash ended in a goalless draw.
Hosts Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid shared the points as the defense of both teams was in top form especially the goalkeepers.
Real Madrid shot-stopper Thibaut Courtois and his Atletico Madrid counterpart Jan Oblak contributed to the result a great deal especially the latter who had to make several saves to ensure that his goal was not breached.
The result ended the two-game winning run for Real Madrid though their unbeaten run is still intact.
They are the only team yet to suffer defeat in the top flight of Spanish football.
Some weeks ago, Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane was under serious pressure but it seems to have eased off a bit on the back of seven points in the last three games.
Zidane came under pressure after his Real Madrid team suffered a thrashing at the hands of French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG) in their Champions League opener this season.
Real Madrid were on the end of a 3-0 defeat at the home of PSG earlier this month.
