Stuttering Spanish champions Madrid slipped 16 points adrift behind runaway leaders and bitter rivals Barcelona following Sunday's 2-2 draw at Celta Vigo.

Gareth Bale was one of a handful of Real first team regulars on display at the Estadio Los Pajaritos, and was on hand to slot home the first from the penalty spot ten minutes before the break after Lucas Vazques was clumsily brought down in the box by Carlos Gutierrez.

However, the strategy is beginning to suffer its first serious crisis since being implemented.Marco Asensio, above all, represented the best example of what was supposed (and is still assumed) to the path at Real Madrid.

Real travelled to Vigo without Dani Carvajal, striker Karim Benzema and captain Sergio Ramos while Celta, who knocked Real out of the King's Cup last season, were emboldened after drawing 1-1 with Barca in the Cup on Thursday.

Celta were given a golden opportunity to restore parity when Keylor Navas conceded a penalty after 72 minutes, but the Costa Rica global atoned for his error by saving Aspas' spot-kick.

The officers "were shot very, very quickly", Spurlock told reporters. 2 civilians also shot by suspect. The sheriff's office has issued a "Code Red", instructing residents in the area to shelter in place.

"We can't do anything more, we're trying to play good football, to move the ball around and score goals but it's not coming off".

"We have to stop making these errors and be more consistent".

It is the first league game for both sides since Barca won 3-0 in the Santiago Bernabeu before Christmas.

"It's hard. We played very well in the first half, but in the second we didn't get out of our half". According to a report in Madrid daily El Mundo, the contract Messi signed last November includes a clause that he must remain a Barcelona player only as long as the club is playing in "a top-level European league".
