Sevilla level with Real Madrid after derby win, Valencia lose to Alaves

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno and Alexis Nunes look ahead to this weekend's round of fixtures in La Liga.
Gabriel Mercado equalised for Sevilla en route to an important win against Real Betis.

Sevilla moved above Barcelona into second place in La Liga and level on points with Real Madrid at the top, following a 2-1 win against Real Betis.

With his side trailing at half-time coach Jorge Sampaoli further enhanced his reputation by making the changes which sealed victory for his side in the derby game.

Betis dominated the first half and took the lead from a free kick by Riza Durmisi in the 36th minute.

But Sampaoli's decisions during the break to replace Franco Vazquez with Iborra and an...

Juanfran focusing on Deportivo La Coruna despite Barcelona link

Alejandro Moreno examines Barcelona's current issues and discusses how they can salvage their sub-par season so far.
A fan celebrates getting De Bruyne's shirt, Messi has a motorcade in Egypt and more in The Sweeper.

Juanfran says speculation linking him with Barcelona is "not easy" but insists he's only focusing on Deportivo La Coruna's league game at Leganes on Saturday.

Rules in Spain would permit Barca to make an emergency signing after they were left without right-back Aleix Vidal for the rest of the season.

Local reports say Juanfran has emerged as the Catalan club's top target, but the former Real Madrid player is keeping his mind on this weekend's match, which pits the two clubs immediately above the...

Shaka Hislop breaks down Gareth Bale's impact for Real Madrid in his return to the lineup against Espanyol.

Gareth Bale marked his return to action with a goal as Real Madrid opened up a four-point lead at the top of La Liga with a 2-0 win at home to Espanyol.

Madrid made a slow start but Alvaro Morata, making his first start in over a month, broke the deadlock on 33 minutes when he headed home Isco's fine cross -- setting a new club record for goals in consecutive games.

Bale replaced Morata in the 71st minute, making his first appearance since suffering an ankle injury 88 days previously, and swiftly...

Barcelona put six goals past Alaves while Real Madrid edge Osasuna

Herculez Gomez and Sebastian Salazar reflect as Barcelona kept the pressure on Real Madrid with a 6-0 drubbing of Alaves.

Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi ran riot as Barcelona fired in four goals in nine second-half minutes on their way to a 6-0 thumping of Alaves on Saturday.

Suarez put Barca ahead on 37 minutes after good work from Aleix Vidal, and Neymar added a second three minutes later, tapping home after some poor defending from the home side.

Alaves remained in the game until Messi added a third just before the hour mark. The floodgates then opened, and Barca added three more in quick succession.

Messi fired home...
