La Liga
Valencia 2-1 Real Madrid

Real Madrid fails to take advantage of one of their two games in hand over the other Spanish title challengers. They still hold a slim one point advantage over Barcelona, but they now only have one extra match to build upon that lead. The next Clasico is on April 23 and it could be a big one, as always, as far as the La Liga title goes. Sevilla is also in the hunt at only three points behind, but they've already beaten Real once in the league this year. The two play once more in the capital on May 14.

FC Dallas joins the fray tonight against Panamanian side Arabe Unido.

Headlines
Liverpool's Adam Lallana has signed a new deal with the club that will keep him there into 2020. He will make £110,000 per week during that time. He has done quite well this year for the Reds. He has seven goals to equal a career high.

A couple of injuries during Manchester United's Europa League win will cost them during Sunday's EFL Cup Final agaisnt Southampton. Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Michael Carrick were both subbed off with injuries during the match. Mkhitaryan hobbled off the pitch shortly after scoring the game's only goal. Carrick left just after the hour mark. Both are probably out for Sunday's final.
