The visitors took the lead in the 10th minute when Tiago headed in Koke's corner at the near post.

Midway through the first half, the hosts came close when Gareth Bale saw his curling free kick tipped wide by Miguel Angel Moya.

In the 26th minute, Madrid were given the chance to level the scores when Cristiano Ronaldo was brought down inside the box by Guilherme Siqueira.

Ronaldo stepped up to take the spot kick and made no mistake with a low effort into the bottom corner that sent Moya the wrong way.

The home side took control of the match and Karim Benzema dragged a shot wide from the edge of the box, before seeing a close-range header beaten away by the keeper.

After the break, Madrid continued to see plenty of the ball, but they struggled to create any decent chances until Ronaldo headed over a cross from Alvaro Arbeloa.

Moments later, substitute Turan had Atletico's best opening of the second half as he cut inside and worked some space on the edge of the box, before firing a strike just wide of the far post.

The visitors began to grow in confidence and, in the 76th minute, they took the lead when Juanfran's low cross was swept into the bottom corner by Turan.

Antoine Griezmann fired into the side-netting after latching onto a long ball in the final minute, and his side held on to claim all three points as they subjected their rivals to a second successive league defeat.
