Madrid to go clear at the top
Real Madrid can go four points clear at the top of La Liga this evening, should they beat Real Sociedad at the Bernabeu.
Rivals Barcelona and Sevilla both dropped points today, the Nou Camp club unable to beat Real Betis while Sevilla were beaten 3-1 by Espanyol.
Los Blancos also have another game in hand, meaning Madrid could go an extraordinary seven points clear at the top should they win both games.
If so, it would be difficult for Barcelona or Sevilla to recover.
