European competitions returned this week, with Barcelona and Real Madrid both in action in the Champions League. Barça’s participation is likely to be short lived however after they lost 4-0 at Paris Saint Germain, but Madrid are well placed to go through after they came from a goal down to beat Napoli 3-1, Benzema, Kroos and Casemiro the scorers. On Thursday it was the turn of the Europa League sides, although Villarreal and Celta both lost at home respectively to Roma (0-4) and Shakhtar Donetsk (0-1), and only Athletic found the net, Aduríz and Williams amongst the scorers in a 3-2 victory over APOEL Nicosia.

Zidane rested several key players at the weekend, but Real Madrid still ran out 2-0 winners over Espanyol, Morata taking advantage of a rare start to head the opener, and Bale making it two just minutes after coming on for his first appearance following a long injury lay-off. With two games in hand they remain a point above Barcelona, who struggled to beat Leganés 2-1. Messi got both of the goals, the second from the penalty spot in the last minute. Sevilla stay third though, Sarabia and Vitolo the scorers in a 2-0 victory over Eibar, and Atlético consolidated fourth place with a 1-4 win at Sporting, Carrasco starting things off just a minute in to the second half, and substitute Gameiro helping himself to a hat-trick in a five minute period near the end. Elsewhere Iago Aspas was on target as Celta beat bottom club Osasuna 3-0, the result taking the Galicians safely up to mid-table. (21.02.17)
