A win against Atletico Madrid on Sunday would close the gap to the second-placed side to just a point, before they face Juventus in the Champions League quarter-final second leg.

"Atletico deserve to be in second, but we can cut the distance and we will try and do that".

Terry Gibson praised Marcelo for this "touch of the game" as Real Madrid looked for a victor against Atletico.

"I have to take decisions but if he doesn't play two games it doesn't mean anything". At this moment, we are focused on the game against Real Madrid and our aim is to play well and get the three points at the Bernabeu and we think of our next game.

According to the Sport Review, Paul said to 888Sport: "United will make some big signings which is great in one way but you wonder are they becoming a team?"

United are believed to want to sign two central midfielders as they prepare to lose Michael Carrick and Marouane Fellaini at the end of the season.

Unfortunately, not every player that has thought of rising to the occasion and making the picture flawless move has tasted success.


"But I can not say for sure what will happen, with my own future or the players', as always".

"It was just [to rest]". Everybody thinks La Liga is over already, but we can not know that.

The title of GOAT has been passed between many players, from the Brazilian Ronaldo to Zidane and from Pele to Maradona, with all staking a worthy claim of the accolade.

Simeone told a pre-match press conference: "I have had derbies when we were first, eighth, ninth".

The Madrid derby is available in most nations through the rights holders' online platform, if they have one.

"I'm the coach but I'm also a football fan, when I see something like that ... that's why Ronaldo is different from others because he can do that kind of thing".

Defender Nacho will miss out for Real as he has not recovered from a muscle problem suffered against Los Palmas.
