Barcelona and Real Madrid use their big wins to remain in lockstep atop La Liga. The entire thing will probably come down to the one extra game Real Madrid has to play against Celta Vigo that was postponed due to high winds back in February. That game does not have a set date yet.

Headlines
Burnley's Joey Barton always seems to be getting himself in trouble. Whether its red cards on the pitch or various incidents off it, he never seems to be on the right side of things. His latest scandal involves gambling and has landed him an 18 month suspension from the game. The 34 year old reportedly bet on over 1,200 matches, including five games in which he played. He plans to appeal the suspension, although this is probably the end of his career.

Thanks to the success of the Copa America Centenario in the USA last summer, CONMEBOL has decided to make the 2019 event in Brazil a 16 team extravaganza once again. The governing body for football in South America confirmed the decision yesterday. Normally, the ten South American nations are joined by a pair of guests for the tournament to make a 12 team field. I would be far from surprised if the USA receives another invite thanks to their wonderful job hosting the 100th anniversary event last year,
