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

But before they could savour their lead, Real had equalised, through Isco, with 17 minutes played.

The second, in the 90th minute, was especially sweet as the Andalusian shaped to curl a 20-yarder to the far post, but instead cut his shot back through the legs of his marker to totally surprise Sporting goalkeeper Ivan Cuellar.

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

Isco scored a stoppage-time victor as Real Madrid twice came from behind to win 3-2 at Sporting Gijon. They need any points they can get even if that involves a superhuman effort against Real.

Leo Messi scored twice and set up Paco Alcacer for Barca's third game as they defeated Real Sociedad 3-2 in the Camp Nou Stadium on Saturday night.

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 a relief to be able to score and take the three points, that was what we wanted".

The decision comes with Madrid facing crucial matches against Bayern Munich and Barcelona in the week following the Sporting clash.

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.

"We did very well from the first minute to the last, Sporting had two chances and scored two goals, we made many chances so the result is deserved".

"I'm doing well", said Lewandowski, who trained with the rest of the squad on Sunday. 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.

Lucas Vázquez: He didn't play his best match with Real Madrid's shirt.

Duje Cop gave Sporting the lead from Mikel Vesga's flicked ball over the top but Isco levelled after good footwork.

Madrid survived an almighty scare in their 3-2 triumph at Sporting on Saturday, overturning a 2-1 deficit as Isco hit the victor with eight seconds of regulation time remaining.

"I have always made it clear that I want to be here for many years", he is quoted as saying by Marca.

Atletico Madrid banked on Yannick Carrasco's double to ease 3-0 past bottom placed Osasuna, but Diego Simeone's side once again showed how awful they have been this season when it comes to scoring penalties.

Osasuna's Salvatore Sirigu saved two late penalties by Carrasco and Thomas Partey.
