Thibaut Courtois joining Real Madrid hurts - ex-Atletico captain Gabi

Former Atletico Madrid captain Gabi Fernandez has said he felt "hurt" that ex-teammate Thibaut Courtois had joined rivals Real Madrid.

Isco thanks Real Madrid supporters as Karim Benzema's skill earns praise

Real Madrid playmaker Isco said his team had been happy to brave pouring rain and whistles from the Atletico Madrid fans to share their passage to the Champions League final with the visiting supporters.

Madrid's players returned to the Calderon pitch 15 minutes after the final whistle, diving together across the slippy surface towards their own crowd high in one corner of the Estadio Vicente Calderon before unused substitute Nacho spread a Madrid flag on the ground.

Atletico strike early, send-off the Calderon with spirited UCL derby win

Atletico Madrid gave the Vicente Calderon the European send-off it deserved as they beat Real Madrid 2-1 in the second leg of their Champions League semifinal Wednesday. While being knocked out on aggregate, they left with their heads held high after what was a spirited display against their great city rivals.

Nevertheless,...

Filipe Luis scores again, Atletico beat Real Sociedad for fifth straight win

Atletico Madrid celebrate Filipe Luis' first-half goal against Real Sociedad.
Atletico has now won five straight and head to the Bernabeu to face rival Real playing some of their best football.

Atletico Madrid's new-found goal machine Filipe Luis secured a harder than necessary 1-0 victory at home to Real Sociedad on Tuesday night.

Yannick Carrasco and Angel Correa were also guilty of missing chances, but Atletico comfortably held on to all but seal Champions League football again next season.
