Real Madrid flex their attacking muscle, Messi saves Barca's blushes

The FC crew discuss Real Madrid's comeback over Villarreal, and how it bolsters their title credentials.

Five thoughts from another extra dramatic weekend in La Liga as Real Madrid remain top despite a scare, but with Barcelona and Sevilla hot on their heels.

1. Madrid's attacking power cracks it

With Real Madrid 2-0 down at Villarreal on Sunday evening, and set to lose top spot in the table with a second away defeat in four days, Blancos coach Zinedine Zidane withdrew holding midfielder Casemiro to send on playmaker Isco.

This did not seem like a good call at the time, especially as Villarreal were...

Real Madrid won an extremely demanding match in Villarreal, coming back from 2-0 down and keeping the lead in the La Liga standings with a 3-2 win. The home side dominated for the opening hour, controlling possession and creating clear chances, but the participation of Isco Alarcon and Madrid's final push proved too much for the hosts.

Koke excels for Atletico Madrid, but Diego Simeone's side lose vs. Barca

Barcelona pick up an important win over Atletico as they look to keep pace with Real Madrid at the top of La Liga.

Koke, centre, bossed the midfield but Atletico Madrid still let it slip vs. their Catalan rivals.

Despite dominating, Atletico Madrid once again somehow contrived to lose 2-1 to Barcelona at the Vicente Calderon on Sunday. For the third time this month, Los Rojiblancos were the better side in their meetings with the Catalan giants yet still came away with nothing to show for it.

Two massive lapses in concentration at the back allowed Rafinha and Lionel Messi (three minutes from the end) to score either side of Diego Godin's effort. It is a bitter pill for Diego Simeone to swallow: he's has...

Neymar, Lionel Messi conjure up precious late win for Barca at Atletico

Yet again, Neymar was Barca's best, and Lionel Messi scored the crucial late goal in a dramatic win.

For the second week in a row, Barcelona left it late to win a league game and for the second week in a row, it was Lionel Messi who popped up when most needed. If last week's win against Leganes led to more questions than celebrations, Sunday's win at Atletico Madrid will provide Barca with the belief they need to go on and challenge Real Madrid for the title.

Rafinha had given Luis Enrique's side a second half lead only for Diego Godin to head in an equaliser soon after. With the draw looming,...
