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.
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.
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 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 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 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 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.
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.
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.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
