La Liga leaders Real Madrid host Sporting Gijon on Saturday evening and both sides are desperate for the points for very different reasons, as European visitors can watch all the action exclusively live with Bet365 (see below).
Madrid boosted their title hopes with a comfortable 4-1 away win against local rivals Atletico Madrid during the week.
Jose Mourinho’s side now sit four points ahead of second placed Barcelona with six games to play.
The Madrid boss will now be seeing this as a game they simply have to pick up three points from, with Gijon struggling at the foot of La Liga.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored yet another hat-trick during the week. It was the sixth time the Portuguese forward had scored three in a game in the league this season. He has now matched his tally of 40 goals from last season.
Madrid may have one eye on their Champions League semi-final against Bayern Munich next week though and the likes of Ronaldo could find themselves rested this weekend as a result.
As for Sporting Gijon, they face a massive test at the Bernabeu on Saturday and it could be more the case of not damaging their goal difference too much rather than picking up anything.
Javier Clemente’s side will however be boosted by a fantastic win against Champions League hopefuls Levante. Clemente’s men ran out 3-2 winners to boost their chances of survival.
