Real Madrid close on top spot after Atletico stumble again

Madrid (AFP) – Real Madrid are back within touching distance of the top of La Liga after they punished another Atletico Madrid slip against Levante on Saturday by beating Real Valladolid 1-0.

Lethal Messi leads Barca to thumping Alaves win ahead of PSG test

Madrid (AFP) – Barcelona might not be able to catch Atletico Madrid but they may fancy their chances against Paris Saint-Germain after Lionel Messi scored twice in a 5-1 thrashing of Alaves on Saturday.  Messi fired in two sensational long-range efforts and would have had a hat-trick at Camp Nou had a dubious VAR decision in the first half not ruled Antoine Griezmann offside.  He did tee up a second of the night for the 21-year-old Francisco Trincao and was instrumental in Junior Firpo adding a...

Makeshift Real Madrid edge closer to Atletico after Getafe win

Madrid (AFP) – A depleted Real Madrid gained ground on Atletico Madrid on Tuesday by beating struggling Getafe 2-0 in La Liga. Madrid were without nine first team players, prompting Zinedine Zidane to adopt an unfamiliar 3-5-2 formation, with Marcelo and the 20-year-old Marvin Park as wing-backs. Karim Benzema and Ferland Mendy scored the goals at Valdebebas, with Mendy’s finish teed up by his fellow left-back Marcelo, who revelled in his new role. Madrid’s victory puts them in sight of Atletic...

De Jong steers Barca to Elche win without suspended Messi

Madrid (AFP) – Barcelona won again without the suspended Lionel Messi on Sunday as goals from Frenkie de Jong and Riqui Puig were enough to secure a scruffy 2-0 win over Elche in La Liga. De Jong poked the ball over the line just before half-time at the Martinez Valero, which would have proved a suitably scrappy winner before Puig came off the bench to head in a second late on.  Despite an uninspiring performance, Ronald Koeman will be relieved to see Barca make it two consecutive victories wit...
