Real Madrid star Marcelo claims there are no easy games

Real Madrid star Marcelo claims there are no easy games

Fabio Coentrao and Danilo were handed rare starts in the fullback positions, while forwards Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema were rested, with Wales global Gareth Bale out injured.

The hard-fought win at relegation-threatened Sporting increased Madrid's lead to six points over Barcelona, before the defending champions host Real Sociedad later.

Sporting, who started the day five points adrift of safety, had gone ahead after 14 minutes through a volley from Duje Cop, but Real were soon level when midfielder Isco drilled home.

However, as they have done so many times this season, Real grabbed the winning goal in the 90th minute as Isco bagged his second goal with another fine finish into the bottom corner.

Isco has been heavily linked with a move away from Real Madrid this summer after falling out of favour under Zinedine Zidane.

"But he is a great player, he has shown that".

Real Madrid leave it late for the umpteenth time this season as their bid for a first La Liga title in five years is doing nothing for their fans' finger nails. I'm anxious about it because I don't like to see players out injured and all the more so during the run-in.

Atletico Madrid had a routine 3-0 win at home to Osasuna, thanks to two goals from Yannick Carrasco and Felipe Luis against a rival ho failed to muster a shot on target.

"We've given every last touch in a tough match".

Isco was one of nine changes Zidane made to his starting line-up with the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final against Bayern Munich on Tuesday in mind.

The visitors controlled the second half, but Barca were able to cling on for three points.

The Spanish worldwide got away from two defenders with some textbook control and evaded the attentions of the three other defenders who looked to halt his progress.

Isco, who joined in 2013 from Malaga, said: "I am at the best team in the world, there is no bigger team than Madrid".

Barcelona's center-back, Samuel Umtiti, scored a goal in the 42nd minute, and two minutes later Barcelona's Paco Alcacer scored his team's third victory goal.
