Bloody nose for Sergio Ramos as Real and Atlético draw in Madrid derby

Sergio Ramos of Real Madrid CF gestures with his nose bleeding during the La Liga match between Club Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid CF at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano  on November 18, 2017...

When the final whistle went at the end of the first ever Madrid derby at the Wanda Metropolitano, Atlético’s new home 12 miles across the city from their old one, there was no roar, but there was a little relief. A 0-0 draw suits neither side and was nothing to celebrate but at least it was not cruel, as some Atlético fans feel their history against Real has been. Instead, it was largely empty. It leaves both teams from the capital ten points behind Barcelona and showcased the reasons why that is the case. Isco apart, this was a game desperately lacking in creativity or control. Lacking goals too.
