Real Madrid earned a 0-0 draw at neighbor Atletico Madrid in a tight derby clash to stay top of La Liga Saturday, continuing their recovery after a disappointing start to the season.

Karim Benzema came closest to scoring at Wanda Metropolitano but Atletico goalkeeper Jan Oblak made a fine save to keep out the French forward's header.

Atletico forward Joao Felix twice fired wide in the first half, while Gareth Bale lashed an effort off target after the break, in a game of few chances.
