Wins for Real and Barcelona

Wins for Real and Barcelona

James Rodriguez and Alvaro Morata scored two apiece as Real Madrid stayed on track to be LaLiga champions with a 4-0 win at relegated Granada.

James Rodriguez put Zinedine Zidane's side in charge in the third minute by bundling in Lucas Vazquez's cross and then headed in a cross from forgotten man Fabio Coentrao to double their lead in the 11th minute.

Barca remain top thanks to their superior head-to-head record with the two locked on 84 points, but Real have three games remaining to the Catalans' two.

"The team's morale? We'll see [on Saturday], the team have always given important answers to hard knocks".

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone believes overturning a 3-0 Champions League semi-final first-leg deficit against Real Madrid would be "impossible" for others, but not for his side.

Real Madrid made wholesale changes to their starting XI on Saturday night in La Liga, and Los Blancos still picked up maximum points at Granada.

"In those games you have to be more relaxed than ever to try to help the team to win the Champions League".

Leonard tied his postseason high with 20 points in the first half as the Spurs opened up a 65-55 lead entering the third quarter. Kawhi Leonard is averaging 30.3 points and 4.6 assists while LaMarcus Aldridge is averaging 13.5 points and 7.3 rebounds.

But Real's remaining three league games after this one are far from easy, facing Sevilla next weekend before trips to Celta Vigo and Malaga.

"I always want to go and score goals yet I am aware there are times when this isn't possible". "We are the opposite, physically we are very strong and that is good news for the end of the season".

"There is no B-team here. We still have to play a flawless game in the second leg on Wednesday and then we have three finals in La Liga".

"Real Madrid are at another level to us, they've got some fantastic players but we gave it to them too easily in the first-half", said Adams.

Neymar was in sensational form in his second game back from suspension and nudged Barcelona ahead in the 21st minute after pouncing on a deflected pass from Messi.

And Messi chipped the resulting penalty down the middle of the goal to round off the scoring.
