Ancelotti's "untouchables" stance isn't helping Real Madrid

ESPN FC's Gabriele Marcotti breaks down Real Madrid's draw to Villarreal, and what that means for the La Liga title race.

You can't really fault Carlo Ancelotti's tenure at Real Madrid. Delivering the Decima guaranteed plenty of leeway at the club, and galvanizing the squad after the fractious reign of predecessor Jose Mourinho was exactly why the affable Italian was hired. Real lead the league table going into March, are very much in the running to retain their European crown, and by and large the players are focused entirely on the good of the collective. After less than two seasons at the Bernabeu, it really is...

ESPN FC Player of the Month -- Messi, Robben or Ribery?

The ESPN FC crew compare Arjen Robben's remarkable season to the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

Diego Costa, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. These were the only three to win the ESPN FC Player of the Month award prior to the month of January, when our poll was overrun by Newcastle supporters and Remy Cabella's name was added to the list. Newcastle's French attacker won't have the chance to repeat, but Messi does have the opportunity to keep the list of recipients a short one.

Europe's top performers in February have been whittled to a three-man short list in consultation with

Ancelotti defends Isco in Madrid draw with Villarreal; Barca back in business

ESPN FC's Gabriele Marcotti breaks down Real Madrid's draw to Villarreal, and what that means for the La Liga title race.

Five thoughts gleaned from La Liga's weekend fixtures, as Real Madrid were held by Villarreal at the Bernabeu, while Barcelona continued to bounce back with a win over Granada, and Atletico were held by European-chasing Sevilla.

1. Isco not an untouchable galactico just yet

Real Madrid remain La Liga leaders after their 1-1 draw at home to Villarreal on Sunday night, but the game again showed how Isco has a ways to go before being confirmed as first choice for coach Carlo Ancelotti.

Pregame praise...

Casillas keeps Real from suffering Villarreal surprise at the Bernabeu

ESPN FC's Tommy Smyth breaks down Real Madrid's 1-1 draw with Villarreal.

Real Madrid's lead at the top of La Liga has been cut to two points after Carlo Ancelotti's men were forced to accept their first league draw of the season, 1-1, against a much-changed but equally-impressive Villarreal side at the Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday night.

Gerardo Moreno's second-half leveller secured the Yellow Submarine a point and ensured Madrid were no longer than only side in La Liga without a draw to their name. Cristiano Ronaldo had fired the hosts ahead in the 52nd minute from...

Suarez, Rakitic and Bravo prove their worth in Barcelona's win over Granada

ESPN FC's Mark Donaldson recaps Barcelona's comfortable win over Granada.

Barcelona had to rely on Luis Suarez, Ivan Rakitic and Claudio Bravo, three of their summer signings, on Saturday to beat Granada and make sure they kept pace with Real Madrid at the top of La Liga. The trio provided further proof that the club's former Sporting Director Andoni Zubizarreta got something right in preseason, despite being sacked by the club in January.

Three points were just what the doctor ordered for Barcelona at Granada, and although the 3-1 win was hard fought, certain players...

Atletico defence helps salvage a point in Sevilla

ESPN FC's Tommy Smyth weighs in on Atletico Madrid's nil-nil draw with Sevilla.

It was not pretty, but a much-changed Atletico Madrid managed to come away from their tricky trip to Sevilla with a very credible 0-0 draw that leaves them in third place, eight points above their opponents in fifth as the race for the four Champions League places approaches its business end.

While this might have been a third consecutive less-than-convincing away performance (see Celta Vigo and Leverkusen beforehand), Atleti went into the tie with confidence, given they were unbeaten in their...
