Thibaut Courtois was able to keep the firepower of Real Madrid at bay as Atletico Madrid defeated their local rivals 1-0 at the Santiago Bernabeu in Spain's La Liga on the weekend.

Courtois, who is enjoying his third loan spell with the Los Rojiblancos, pulled off several fine saves including a vital stop to keep out Alvaro Morata's volley as he pushed his clean sheet tally to seven for the season.

Diego Costa scored the only goal of the game as Atletico now see themselves above Real on the La Liga table, sharing top spot with Barcelona on 21 points.
