Atletico spoil Bale's home debut in Madrid derby
It was the first time in 14 years that Los Rojiblancos recorded victory over their rivals in the league.

ATLETICO MADRID ENJOYED their first La Liga victory over derby rivals Real Madrid since 1999 with a 1-0 win at the Bernabeu last night.

Diego Simeone’s side came into the fixture on the back of six consecutive wins in the league and although Real started well, the visitors took the lead in the 11th minute through Diego Costa.

Real reacted at half-time by bringing Gareth Bale on for his home debut, but the world’s most expensive player could not make a difference as Atletico held on for three points to move level with Barcelona again as they continue to assert their early claim as genuine title contenders.
