Benzema out for up to six weeks

Benzema out for up to six weeks

The visitors took a shock lead on 12 minutes when a long throw into the box from Ivan Lopez caused chaos, allowing Ivi to reach the ball, stabbing it over Francisco Casilla at the second attempt.

Gareth Bale's touch let him down late in the first half when he broke free behind the defense, and Toni Kroos would have won the game in stoppage time had his curling shot found the net instead of the post. Barca could move four points clear of Real with victory at home to Espanyol later on Saturday.

'Every player is transferable right now and we'll see what happens in a year, although I don't know what'll happen next year, just as nobody does'. We have to go out stronger and score first. That goal extended Madrid's run to 71 consecutive games scoring at least once.

Keylor Navas has been left out of the squad after a gruelling global break with Costa Rica, meaning Kiko Casilla starts in goal.

European Union must avoid rupture with Turkey, France's Macron says
In the press conference later with PM Alexis Tsipras , Macron underscored that "the Greek crisis has always been a European one". The French presidency said North Korea's "repeated provocations" were a "threat to peace and worldwide security".

However, as Madrid pressed a well-organized rival deeper into their half, they got their reward when Lucas Vazquez equalized from close range after Raul Fernandez had done well to parry Sergio Ramos' header from a corner.

Real Madrid start the defence of their Champions League titles on Wednesday when they face Apoel Nicosia, could they make it a historic third?

Having got back on level terms, Bale, on as a substitute for Karim Benzema, missed two great chances before the break, sending a glancing header wide before Raul made a great save when one-on-one with the Welshman.

Despite their numerical disadvantage, Madrid still almost grabbed all three points as Toni Kroos's effort from the edge of the area clipped the outside of the post.
