Real Madrid fans should feel quite pleased about the team's performance at the Vicente Calderón. For 75 minutes, Los Blancos dominated Atlético de Madrid and had everything under control, and while it's true that Simeone's men could have scored a goal during the late stages of the game, Real Madrid deserved to get the win.
That's why, ultimately some fans and players might feel frustrated after the 0-0 draw. Gareth Bale could have made things a lot easier for Real Madrid and Benzema's poor performance didn't help. Cristiano Ronaldo was invisible too and Real Madrid were not able to take advantage from the good display by the midfielders.
Real will now need to win the return leg at the Santiago Bernabéu thanks to that ridiculously unfair rule that is the importance of away goals. With the Bernabéu's support, Real Madrid should have a good opportunity to finally beat Atlético de Madrid this season. Eighth time the charm?
