Madrid were able to completely dominate their rivals and ease their way to victory against a 10-men Atletico.

While talking to AS, he was quoted as saying:

"I can't say whether Real Madrid and Barcelona are of the same level or whether Madrid play even better than Barca. I can only say that I hope Madrid win La Liga and the Champions League, and beat Barcelona as well,

"I try to follow La Liga as closely as possible. I didn't have the chance to see the derby, but I know that Madrid won and are in great form. I think that they can achieve great things this season" added the retired veteran while discussing Real’s win against Atletico.

Widely considered one of the best strikers of all time, Ronaldo played for Real Madrid from 2002 to 2006.
