If there was ever a time to mark yourself down as a hero, it’s in the Madrid derby. Atletico Madrid defender Stefan Savić pulled off a superhuman goal-line clearance against Real Madrid this morning.
When Cristiano Ronaldo fires a shot, you know there is a strong chance it’s going in. With the Madrid Derby deadlocked at 0-0, Savic lunged in desperation to remarkably clear Ronaldo’s shot off the goal-line.
Surprise surprise, Cristiano Ronaldo was the most shocked man in the stadium, looking like he’d just seen a ghost.
The Madrid Derby ended in a stalemate at 1-1, with goals to Pepe and Antoine Griezmann.
