Spanish forward Burgui - on loan from Real Madrid - missed out for the home side through suspension, while Juan Rodriguez and Lacina Traore were both ruled out of action through ankle and foot injuries respectively.

The lead lasted just three minutes as Real responded with a wonder goal of their own. "... Showing similarities with another Spaniard with that handsome dribbling run...", one of the English commentators said after the midfielder made a total mockery of Sporting's defence in second half.

Isco has only played 77 minutes for Real Madrid in the Champions League across two appearances, but after he stood head and shoulders above his team mates in Gijon, he may be rewarded with a start against Bayern Munich on Tuesday.

The result puts the pressure back on Barcelona, who must beat Real Sociedad later on Saturday to avoid the gap at the summit being greater than three points when the Santiago Bernabeu hosts El Clasico next weekend. I'm anxious about it because I don't like to see players out injured and all the more so during the run-in.

The regulatory agency, which oversees blood testing labs, has reinstalled Theranos' lab operating certification as a result. Theranos has agreed to pay a penalty of $30,000 and can not operate a clinical laboratory for the next two years.

Vesga looped a header over Kiko Casilla to put the hosts back in front after halftime, but Alvaro Morata equalised with a headed goal of his own, before Isco's late victor.

"To try to win here we have to do the flawless game", Bayern coach Carlo Ancelotti said on Monday.

In the final minute of the game Madrid got their goal, Isco finding a pocket of space on the edge of the area and firing a strike inside Ivan Cuellar's near post. When we need everyone, they're there.

And as the match started, the rumblings grew louder, with Real Madrid succumbing to an early goal from Sporting Gijon. There is little time to rest and those who played today were phenomenal.

Andre Johnson to sign one-day contract to retire a Texan
Johnson, 35, was the number three overall pick of the 2003 National Football League draft after starring for the Miami Hurricanes. Johnson, drafted in 2003, spent 12 seasons with the Texans becoming the franchise's all-time leader in receptions and touchdowns.

The midfielder cut inside from the right and fired the ball back over the Sporting keeper into the top-left corner.

"I am in the best team in the world, there are no more important clubs than Real Madrid and I feel lucky to be here".

"I want to stay at Real Madrid for many years", Isco said.

"You know what I think of Isco, he is a player I like a lot and his place is here", said Zidane. The win ended a disgusting week which saw Barca lose 2-0 in Malaga and 3-0 away to Juventus, but even the three points couldn't disguise the feeling of decline.

Manhunt for suspect in Facebook homicide video widens to 5 states
In the video, which has been widely shared online, Stephens, 37, reportedly said a woman's name and asked Godwin to repeat it. Late Sunday, police issued an aggravated murder warrant for him and say in a statement he may have traveled out of state.

Osasuna's Salvatore Sirigu saved two late penalties by Carrasco and Thomas Partey. So far, the numbers look decent: seven wins, one loss and one draw.
