Ronaldo resting, Isco's 2 goals keeps Madrid on title track


Real Madrid had a glorious chance to take the lead in the 48th minute when Nacho met a deep free kick from James, but Sporting goalkeeper Cuellar was on hand to make a wonderful point-blank save.

Real Madrid suffered a set back in La Liga last week, conceding a late goal in the Madrid derby to draw 1-1 with Atletico Madrid.

"We'll be monitoring his progress every day".

April 16 (ANI): A last-minute goal from Isco helped Real Madrid snatch a dramatic 3-2 win against relegation-threatened Sporting Gijon at the El Molinon Stadium in Asturias, Spain on Saturday. When we want everyone, they're there.

He equalized Sporting's opener with a twisting run inside the home side's penalty area which he finished with a low shot and then won the game in the last minute with a low drive to put the icing on the cake.

Using his index and little fingers, Isco was shown how to sign "I love you" and agreed with the young fan that this would be his celebration should his goal scoring form for Madrid continue.

"It is hard, there isn't time to rest, but we are working very well and we're good physically". The player was cast aside for a few matches but on Saturday, he produced a display that may bring him back into the eyes of the manager, who may grant him more minutes.

The sense that only Lionel Messi can deny Madrid a first league title in five years was strengthened as he scored twice and made the other for the improving Paco Alcacer in Barcelona's 3-2 win over Real Sociedad on Saturday evening. He received the ball on the edge of the area, beat two opponents with a handsome bit of skill with his heel, then fooled the next defender before placing the ball in the top corner of Cuéllar´s goal with a precise left-footed shot.

Isco's prolonged form has finally seen him cement himself into the Madrid set-up on a permanent basis, following an uncertain start to his life in the Spanish capital.

But Alvaro Morata headed Madrid level again in the 59th from a pass by Danilo, and the pacesetters kept pushing until Isco netted the victor.

"I have always been clear - I want to stay at Real Madrid for many years", Isco said.

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. Yannick Carrasco scored a brace while Felipe Luis added a third goal for Atletico Madrid.

Deportivo moved away from the drop zone with its first win in five rounds with a 2-0 victory over Malaga.
