Real Madrid came back from behind twice to secure an all-important win against Sporting Gijon, as they remain 3 points clear of Barcelona ahead of the El Classico next week. Sporting took the lead via Duje Cop who finished brilliantly past Kiko Casilla (as Keylor Navas was rested for the tie), from a lovely dinked ball from Mikel Vesga.
