Superstars v little people

Real Madrid's superstars, flying high at the top of La Liga, enter the land of Spanish football's little people on Saturday when they take on humble Eibar in the Basque country.

Neymar scored a hat-trick and Lionel Messi got his 400th career goal as Barcelona stormed back to the top of La Liga with a 6-0 thrashing of Granada on Saturday. Real Madrid remained just four points adrift of the leaders as Cristiano Ronaldo's hot scoring streak continued in a 2-0 win at Villarreal.

Ronaldo sees red as Real held

Ronaldo sees red as Real held

Cristiano Ronaldo was sent-off as Real Madrid lost ground in the La Liga title race with a 1-1 draw away to Athletic Bilbao on Sunday. Atletico Madrid became outright leaders for the first time since their double winning season in 1996 earlier in the day with a 4-0 win over Real Sociedad on Sunday. The draw moves Real level with Barcelona, who suffered a shock defeat at home to Valencia on Saturday, three points behind Atletico. It could have been so much better for Madrid as after a difficult opening 45 minutes, Jese Rodriguez looked to have them on the road to a 11th consecutive victory when he prodded home Ronaldo's cross...
