Iniesta refuses to blame Malaga defeat on referee

And if he is banned for more than one league game he will be unavailable for the April 23 Clasico at the Bernabeu, a decisive day in the Liga title race with Madrid now three points clear.

Neymar was sent off as Barcelona suffered a shock 2-0 defeat at Malaga on Saturday that scuppered their hopes of going top of La Liga and handed control of the title race to leaders to Real Madrid.

Real, which still have a game in hand, still have matches against Barcelona and fourth-place Sevilla on deck over the final two months as the club seeks its first Liga title in five years.

A man down and a goal down, with all three subs used, Enrique's side were badly exposed on the counter a number of times in the remainder and should have been two down when Adalberto Penaranda rounded the keeper and converted, with an incorrect offside flag saving the visitors.

Turkey Calls For Removal Of Syria's Al-Assad
Russia said it expected the UN Security Council to condemn the USA strikes, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said. "Here we see Assad terrorizing Syria, killing almost 1 million people and some still think condemnation is enough", he said.

And things went from bad to worse subsequent to the period having another booking for Neymar - his first red card in LaLiga - following a risky foul on Diego Llorente near the corner flag. But luckily for Zinedine Zidane's side, Barca made their own mess and Real remained at the top of the table with 72 points, three more than their arch-rivals.

Barcelona's probably has the slightly better balance, but Real Madrid's triumvirate are the better players, technically and tactically, overall.

Sandro exposed some bad defending from Jeremy Mathieu to sprint clear on goal and slot past Marc-Andre ter Stegen at his near post. In an exciting thriller, in which both the keepers made some unbelievable saves, Real failed to take all the three points and had to settle for a draw.

However, Malaga boss Jose Miguel Gonzalez had not read the script as his side chalked up a second successive victory to move closer to safety.

Mitt Romney eyes potential Utah Senate campaign
Utah's senior Republican senator, first elected in 1976, hasn't been definitive about his intentions yet. Friday, Hatch told CNN he regularly talks to Romney but said it is "early to talk about this stuff".

"We need to be careful in these type of matches, there were some very ugly challenges which should have been a card and others committed by us which were marked with a yellow", Luis Enrique said. Instead, the former Barcelona forward was left with half the pitch to bear down on goalie Marc-Andre ter Stegen and fire inside his near post in the 32nd.

Do not omit the Barcelona Catalan players.

It was then Barcelona's turn to feel aggrieved when Sergi Roberto was only awarded a free kick, even though he appeared to be fouled in the penalty area.

"I can't say that Atletico played well".
