Karim Benzema’s lone goal seals Real Madrid’s victory over Atletico Madrid

Karim Benzema scored the only goal as Real beat Atletico in the Madrid derby to go six points clear at the top of La Liga.

The French striker converted Ferland Mendy’s cross from six yards out to give Real a deserved win.

Fifth-placed Atletico, who have not won in five games, were disappointing, although Angel Correa hit the post.

Real could have won by more with half-time substitute Vinicius Jr forcing two saves from Jan Oblak.
