Cristiano Ronaldo and Real Madrid humiliated against Atletico in 4-0 loss

Atletico Madrid ran over their rivals Real Madrid this Saturday afternoon at the Vicente Calderón, by beating Carlo Ancelotti's men with a shocking 4-0 scoreline. Cristiano Ronaldo made his return after serving a 2-game suspension, but just like most of his teammates on the pitch, he struggled to produce anything positive at all.

It's hard to explain what just happened in the Vicente Calderón this Saturday afternoon. The reigning European champions were humiliated against their city rivals, in a showdown where Atletico basically crushed Real Madrid through a shocking but deserved 4-0 win. Frankly, a short-handed Real Madrid never once looked like standing a chance at the Vicente Calderon. Outplayed, outclassed and out worked. The derby was a disaster in every sense of the word, from Casillas' errors to a lack of stability in the midfield. Real Madrid have yet to beat Atletico in five games this season and to be honest, they'd probably do best to avoid Diego Simeone's team in the UEFA Champions League if they are hoping to repeat what they've done last season...

All Cristiano Ronaldo actions vs Atletico Madrid:

The Merengues presented a makeshift backline, comprising of Raphael Varane, Nacho Fernandez and Fabio Coentrão, all of them deputizing for the injured and suspended regulars. An hapless, weak and anemic Madrid, looked like a fish out of water at the Vicente Calderón...

They were step slow, a moment late and every touch was a bit off. Any semblance of fluidity evaporated. The Merengues looked scared and timid and never really had any hope of competing against an Atletico team that seems to relish beating up on Real Madrid these days.

It was an absolute disaster.

The first goal came in the 14th minute. A shot from Tiago outside the box was weakly controlled by Casillas and slowly rolled into the net. It was a huge error from Iker, who seemed to have been blinded by his defense.

Merely four minutes later and the score was doubled due to some fantastic acrobatics from Saul Niguez. A cross from Atletico's left back Guilherme Siqueira met the foot of Niguez, who had just come in for the injured Koke, a few minutes prior. The young midfielder instinctively completed an overhead kick in off the post and less than 20 minutes in, Real Madrid were already in dire straits.

And it would keep getting worse. The league leaders finished the first half with zero shots on target. In fact, they finished the game totaling only one shot on target.

The second half just saw wave after wave of Atletico attack. In the 67th minute, Griezmann finished off a well worked move that left Casillas and the rest of the Madrid defenders scrambling. Atletico would complete the rout in the 89th minute after a header from Mario Mandzukic, as the Madrid defense was again scrambling in no mans' land without a hope of stopping the former Bayern Munich striker.

It was a poor performance for a Real Madrid team that looks tired and demotivated. Ancelotti has a lot of work to do if this team is to compete in the business end of the table...
