Deportivo La Coruña 1-1 Atlético Madrid
(Andone 13')-(Griezmann 68')

There was a scare moment for Atlético's Fernando Torres near the end of this match. The stroker was on the wrong end of a violent head to head collision that caused him to rag doll down to the turf and see a flurry of players on both sides rushing to his aide. he was taken to the hospital, where he was later alert and speaking. Thankfully, he seems to have avoided serious damage after a rather bleak outlook at the start. He has been released from the hospital.

Headlines
New York City have bought out the contract of Mix Diskerud. This was a long time coming for the one time USMNT player. Since they cut him by yesterday's roster deadline, his $700,000+ salary will not count against the salary cap, even though they still owe him around $1.5 million total. Diskerud will not rush to find a new club. The only notable place he could go overseas would be Norway, where the transfer window is still open. No MLS teams seem to be rushing towards him, so that might be his only option at the moment.

Thanks to the reputation of Russian fans developed at last summer's European Championships, the Russian government has declared that fans will need identification cards in order to attend World Cup matches in 2018 as well as Confederation Cup games this coming summer. The government, who will issue the cards, is hoping this will cut down on violent acts that have been threatened to go down already.
