Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho played without the likes of Hamit Altintop, Lassana Diarra, Ricardo Carvalho and Nuri Sahin, while Gonzalo Higuain and Kaka don’t play.

Barcelona will look to close gap on their rivals with victory over Rayo Vallecano later, the team, though saddened that manager Pep Guardiola has decided to step down, is still looking to keep the fight going until the final game of the season.

I like to travel, one of the favourite things on my list, but I also like to just spend time with family and friends when I am not covering football games. Hope to dump into some of my readers some day.
