...
90+4' Marcelo wastes quite a bit of time near the corner flag, with the referee taking his own sweet time too.
...
90+2' Akram Afif goes into the book for a poor foul on Asensio. The Sporting player's heartbreak is transforming into physical forms.
...
90' 3 minutes of injury time
...
90' WHO ELSE BUT ISCO!!! The Spaniard picks up the ball on the edge of the box and hammers a low drive past Cuellar into the bottom corner to earn Real Madrid the win!

Sporting Gijon 2-3 Real Madrid!
...
90' GOAAAL ISCOOOOOOO!!!!
...
88' Real Madrid are furious with the referee as they appeal for a Babin handball. Morata goes into book, while Kovacic is replaced by Casemiro.

Replays show the Madrid players may have had a point.
...
87' Nacho Cases goes into the book for a poor foul on Isco
...
86' James' free-kick is hammered straight into the wall. He is 5 minutes away from playing the full 90 minutes for the first time this season - let's not risk that now....
...
85' Dani Ndi concedes a foolish free kick in his own half. Real Madrid have a free-kick down the middle, with James standing over the ball.
...
81' Real Madrid have a corner as Sergio Alvarez desperately slides in to intercept Marcelo's through ball to Isco.

James wings in a beautiful corner, but Mariano heads the ball over from about 5 yards out - he ought to have done better!
...
79' Duje Cop goes off to warm applause and is replaced by Dani Ndi
...
78' Isma Lopez goes into the book for poor challenge on Nacho, who rolled around a fair bit.
...
74' ALMOST!! James channels his inner Arjen Robben, cutting inside from the right wing on his left foot and curling a superb effort aimed at the inside of the far post, but that's where the comparison ends, as his effort flies wide.
...
72' WHAT A RUN FROM ISCO!!!! That was worthy of Lionel Messi - Isco twisted and turned past about 5 defenders and just as he's about to pull the trigger and score a wondergoal, Mere takes the ball off his toes, with Marcelo smashing the rebound wide!
...
71' Mariano Diaz comes on to replace Lucas Vazquez
...
69' Nacho Cases comes on to replace Moi Gomez.
...
68' Excellent defending from Jorge More as he shelters Asensio of the ball and out for a goal kick.
...
65' This game just does not stop! Marcelo sends in a tempting cross from the left, with Morata's looping header requiring Cuellar to stretch out his arms and collect the ball.
...
64' IT'S ALL HAPPENING! Morata gets Cuellar to produce a point-blank save in the box, but the referee pulls up play for offside.
...
63' CLOSE! What a game this is! Isma Lopez floats into the Real Madrid half from the left wing, with Los Blancos' rearguard parting like the Red Sea and allowing the Sporting fullback to flash a low effort narrowly wide of the post
...
62' CLOSE!! Danilo flashes a header narrowly wide off the near post from James' free-kick. He's been excellent today!
...
61' Lillo and Morata get into a bit of a heated argument, with the Spanish striker unhappy with his challenge.
...
59' THE EQUALIZER FOR REAL MADRID! Danilo sends in a perfect chipped cross from the right. Morata towers above Babin at the far post and heads it back across goal and into the net! A textbook No.9's goal!

Sporting Gijon 2-2 Real Madrid
...
59' GOAL ALVAROOO MORATAAA!
...
58' Marcelo comes on to replace Coentrao
...
57' Great keeping! Lucas Vazquez sends in another tempting cross (I should really copy-paste that phrase), with Morata awaiting the ball at the far post. Cuellar realises the danger and collects the ball, bravely getting a knock on his ribs in the process.
...
56' Well it's all going wrong for Real Madrid - Isco, who's been stellar today, is let down by a poor first touch. A collector's item, that. Los Blancos are flooding Gijon's half at the moment, but the hosts are holding firm.
...
54' OOOH! James curls a powerful effort from about 25 yards out, but Cuellar positions himself well to save his effort. Meanwhile, Marcelo warms up for Madrid on the touchline - they do not have many attacking options on the bench.
...
52' Well, no one saw that coming - Real Madrid have it all to do and I bet Zinedine Zidane wishes he had Cristiano Ronaldo on the bench right now!
...
50' WHAT A STUNNING HEADER! A goal out of nothing! The ball is floated to Babin at the left side of the box, he heads it back into the mix. Vesga arrives and produces a stunning looping header over Casilla into the top corner. That was his first goal in La Liga! What a time to get it!

Sporting Gijon 2-1 Real Madrid
...
50' GOAL MIKEL VESGAAAA!
...
48' HOW DID THEY MISS?!!! James sends in a superb free-kick from the left wing which falls to Nacho at the far post. He heads it down and Cuellar makes a stunning reaction save, with Morata inches away from heading the ball into an open net. Strangely, the referee blows for a goal kick, instead of a corner.
...
46' PEEP PEEP PEEP! Sporting get us underway in the second half!
...
HT: Sporting Gijon 1-1 Real Madrid
...
43' Danilo is pushed over as he made his way towards the byline by Isma Lopez, earning Madrid a free-kick in a dangerous position. James stands over the ball...

and his delivery goes into the wall and out for a corner.
...
41' CLOSE! Isco finds Coentrao on the overlap, with the Portuguese fullback sending in a low cross that trickles agonisingly past three Madrid players with Gijon lucky to clear.
...
40' Gijon have Real Madrid with their backs to the wall, but despite spreading the ball from right to left, they cannot break down Los Blancos' rearguard. Danilo intercepts and leads an attack forward.
...
38' Marco Asensio and Lillo get into a bit of an argument as the latter clattered into him off the ball. The ref comes over to calm things down, after Vazquez had blazed over with his left foot.
...
37' ALMOST!!! Kovacic leads a counter up the pitch after a Sporting counter breaks down. He plays the ball out to James on the left side of the box, and the Colombian produces a low cross into the box, with Mere scrambling to clear it off Vazquez' toes. End-to-end stuff this.
