Isco: Chelsea target hints at new Real Madrid contract

Spanish forward Burgui - on loan from Real Madrid - missed out for the home side through suspension, while Juan Rodriguez and Lacina Traore were both ruled out of action through ankle and foot injuries respectively.

Madrid meet Bayern on Tuesday after beating the German champions 2-1 at the Allianz Arena in the sides' Champions League quarter-final first leg on Wednesday night.

"If I have been unfair to Isco I have been unfair to all who do not play".

They made hard work of it, too, having to fight to come from behind to pick up a well earned 3-2 victory, thus extending their lead over Barcelona at the top of the table to three points with a game in hand.

Sporting v Real Madrid - El Molinon Stadium, Gijon, Spain - 15/04/17 Real Madrid's Francisco "Isco" Alarcon (R) celebrates with team mate Marcelo after scoring a goal.

Real's Sociedad's midfielder, Xabi Prieto, scored the second goal in favor of his team two minutes after Alcacer's goal.

Vesga then scored a looping header before Alvaro Morata levelled with his head and Isco got the 20-yard victor.

Juventus star Paulo Dybala reveals agreement on Barcelona
The Italians were solid in defense and Giorgio Chiellini's experience was vital for Massimiliano Allegri's side. Teenager Kylian Mbappe and forward Radamel Falcao struck early to put Monaco on its way.

The eccentric former Arsenal captain didn't disappoint in his first press conference where he promised to "kick some players' arse" in an uphill battle to save Granada from relegation in the final seven games of the season.

Zinedine Zidane shuffled his squad for the match, with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale getting the evening off before this week's return match against Bayern Munich in the Champions League. His second goal just after half time showed another part of his game, as he met a curling Nico Gaitan cross to power in a back post header.

With this win, Barcelona is only three points behind first-place team, Real Madrid.

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. If Villarreal beats Alaves, they will go just five points below Sevilla, dangerously close for a side who has just won one game in last eight matches.

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. "But he is a great player, he has shown that. I want to thank Real Madrid for the opportunity to build a wonderful at this club, and to my teammates as well".

"The Spaniard added: "I'm in the best team in the world, there is no club bigger than Real Madrid and I feel very fortunate to be here".
