Sporting Gijon v Real Madrid - As it happened

The end

It looked like the leaders would drop points, but a stellar Isco saved the team with a 90th-minute goal. Sporting took the lead twice with goals from Cop and Vesga, but Isco and then Morata equalised for the visitors, before the talented midfielder found the bottom corner to take the three points.

3 added minutes

Madrid lead in the 90th minute

If there was any doubt of who the best of the game was, Isco gets a 90-minute winner for his team. He picked up the ball at the edge of the box and found the bottom corner.

We're back!

Half time

Chance Real Madrid!

Lucas comes in from the right and gets a shot out with his left foot, but it is off target.

Lucas crossed from the right, and the centre-forward headed over Cuellar.

Real Madrid level!

Straight away Madrid equalise. A beautiful goal from Isco who picked up the ball in the box, went past two defenders and found the top corner with a left-footed shot.
