(Pique 56')-(Benzema 62', Ronaldo 85')

This is a big Clasico win for Real Madrid, but they shouldn't get too excited. They are still seven points back of their main rivals with only seven matches left to play. There is also Atletico Madrid standing between them and Barcelona. They would need a lot of unrealistic help to have a realistic chance at claiming the La Liga title this year.

This loss seal's the relegation fate of Troyes with six matches still to play. They will drop down to Ligue 2 for next season.

Headlines
There was much debate over whether Neymar would play in Copa America, the Olympics in Rio, or both this summer and we seem to have out answer. Barcelona will release their young star for the Olympics only, leaving American fans without Neymar for the biggest tournament on their soil since 1994. This makes sense from a Brazilian perspective. The only major tournament they have never won is the Olympics and they have a chance to get their first gold in front of their home fans. So why not use Neymar if his club will allow? Meanwhile, this is a unique edition of the Copa America which has been won by Brazil eight times.
