Real Madrid

Ancelotti faces selection dilemma for Atleti showdown after Modric injury

Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti insists his side's 3-1 win over Malaga was a positive match, despite Gareth Bale and Luka Modric both limping off with injuries.

Carlo Ancelotti may finally give Real Madrid fans what they have been craving all season and what he has stubbornly resisted -- a return to 4-4-2.

However, if the Italian does opt for a change in tact for Wednesday night's huge Champions League quarterfinal second leg against city rivals Atletico, it will not be through choice. Injuries to Gareth Bale and Luka Modric may force his hand to change from a preferred 4-3-3 but Madrid could be changing to a formation that has already worked this season...

Ronaldo and Rodriguez carry injury-hit Real Madrid to win vs. Malaga

Footballing legend Pele said that he considers Lionel Messi to be the best player in the world.
Cristiano Ronaldo padded his lead on the top of the La Liga scoring charts, scoring his 39th goal of the season and his 50th overall this campaign.

Real Madrid maintained the status quo at the top of La Liga with a 3-1 win over a committed and inventive Malaga at the Bernabeu, but there was a price to pay. Luka Modric is expected to be out for six weeks after picking up a knee injury and Gareth Bale limped off after four minutes with a calf strain.

The club's manager Carlo Ancelotti knows there is little room for error in the race for the title, hence fielding his strongest possible team, but prospects for the upcoming Champions League derby...

Messi leads Barca to win; Real Madrid's injury woes - Five things we learned

Real Madrid and Barcelona continue their title pushes as they both pick up three points on the weekend.

Five thoughts gleaned from the weekend's action, as Barcelona beat Valencia and Real Madrid overcame Malaga but suffered some more injury issues.

1. Messi, not Luis Enrique, helped Barca overcome Valencia's pressure

Although Barcelona went ahead inside the first minute against Valencia through Luis Suarez at the Camp Nou on Saturday afternoon, the visitors absolutely battered Barca for most of the first half -- missing a penalty, hitting the post and generally controlling the game.

Barca were...

Real Madrid need weekend focus for test vs. a talented and pesky Malaga

Karim Benzema limped out of training with a knee problem and now Carlo Ancelotti says he will miss Real Madrid's La Liga game at home to Málaga.

For some time in La Liga, Malaga have fulfilled the honorary role of many people's choice of second team. When The Anchovies met Real Madrid in La Rosaleda last season, the issue of who exactly would be the most supported side on the day was a thorny one: the Andalusian city is something of a hotbed of second-side syndrome with almost as many people professing themselves fans of the Bernabeu club as fried boquerones. The sides share a legend after all: Juanito, Real's Maravilla whose name is chorused...

Drogba, Ronaldo and Zidane combine forces for charity

It's that time of year again, when Zinedine Zidane gets out his little black book and proceeds to rope together all of his old muckers for his annual UNDP Match Against Poverty charity bonanza.

As always, the supporting cast Zidane is currently assembling already looks phenomenal, boasting star names from Cafu to Clarence Seedorf; Edwin van der Sar to Youri Djorkaeff.

Indeed, Didier Drogba became the latest player to sign up for the 12th incarnation of Zizou's fundraiser, with the Chelsea veteran...

Varane worthy of starting role in return leg versus Atletico

Relive all the action from the first four games of the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals.

When the teamsheets were handed out at the Vicente Calderon an hour before Tuesday's Champions League quarterfinal clash and Raphael Varane's name was included in the starting lineup, the only answers to the questions being asked were that Pepe could not have been 100 percent match fit.

The Frenchman's place alongside Sergio Ramos at the heart of the Madrid defence was not a shock, but it did differ from the "star XI" that many had predicted. Real manager Carlo Ancelotti had his full squad injury-free...
