Athletico win at the Barnabeu through Tiago Mendes and Arda Turan 10th and 76th minute goals. Real show contention through a Christiano Ronaldo penalty at 26 minutes but it’s their only goal. The Real coach is on eight weeks suspension. Simeone:
Arda gave us football. When Turan scored, it was his third opportunity in three minutes. More than there had been in the previous 70. Just like last year’s league meeting at the same ground, he was the game’s outstanding player. The players who had been waiting to come on changed everything.
