Zidane gets subs right as Madrid held; Griezmann keeps Atletico in title race — Five thoughts from the weekend's La Liga action as Real Madrid slip up, Barcelona win easily and Atletico Madrid grind out three more points. 1. Zidane did get his subs right Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane got his substitutions spot on during Saturday's trip to Las Palmas, even if the final result of 2-2 did not obviously suggest as much.

Kevin Gameiro 'decisive' in Atletico Madrid win vs. Depor - Simeone — Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone called substitute Kevin Gameiro "decisive" after Sunday evening's 1-0 La Liga win over Deportivo La Coruna at the Estadio Vicente Calderon. A scrappy first half saw Atletico lose both Augusto Fernandez and Jose Maria Gimenez through injury, and Depor's Faycal Fajr sent off just before the break after picking up two yellow cards in seven minutes.

Nani on target and Diego Alves sets penalty record in Valencia victory — Former Manchester United winger Nani scored and goalkeeper Diego Alves set a new La Liga record for penalty saves as Valencia won 2-1 at Leganes on Sunday.

Monaco go atop Ligue 1 with comeback defeat of Angers — Monaco reached the top of the Ligue 1 table after coming from behind to beat Angers 2-1 at the Stade Louis II. Famara Diedhiou opened the scoring for visitors Angers in the 55th minute but goals from Kamil Glik and an own goal by Dickson Nwakaeme saw Monaco claim the victory.

Real Madrid drop points at Las Palmas as Zidane rolls the dice with Benzema sub — Real Madrid were held to a second consecutive La Liga draw on Saturday, a 2-2 result against a Las Palmas side that continued their eye-catching start to the season. Zinedine Zidane's visitors took the lead through Marco Asensio before Tana levelled for the hosts.

Real Madrid's Zinedine Zidane after Las Palmas draw: 'Football is cruel' — Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said his side didn't deserve to lose after a late equaliser saw their lead over Barcelona at the top of the La Liga table cut to one point thanks to Saturday evening's 2-2 draw at home to Las Palmas.

Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo not angry after substitution - Zidane — Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has defended his decision to remove Cristiano Ronaldo in the second half of Los Blancos' 2-2 draw at Las Palmas on Saturday. With 20 minutes remaining and his team 2-1 ahead, Zidane decided to remove Ronaldo and send on Lucas Vazquez, and the three-time Ballon d'Or winner did not look happy as he slowly took his place on the bench.

Real Madrid's Alvaro Morata feels hard done by draw at Las Palmas — Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata admitted Saturday's 2-2 draw at Las Palmas was a blow to his team's La Liga title chances, but added there was no need to make a drama out of one result. A very open first half saw Madrid youngster Marco Asensio strike first, only for Las Palmas midfielder Tana to soon equalise.

Real Madrid loss of Casemiro compounds defensive challenges versus Las Palmas — Just when Real Madrid seemed to be cruising in the first two months of the season, two injuries to key players have brought back the daunting memories of past seasons. Casemiro is out for at least one month with a broken fibula, which leaves Zinedine Zidane without pure defensive midfielders.

Valencia, one of Europe's biggest clubs, begin yet another rebuild — Here is the news: Valencia won on Thursday night. They won 2-1. At home. Against Alavés, a newly promoted team that hasn't been in the first division for a decade. Oh, and it was thanks to an own goal and a late, late penalty. But still, they won, and that really is news.
