El Clasico date
The date and kick-off time for the next El Clasico has been finalised. The highly-awaited clash between Real Madrid and Barcelona has been set for March 1, 9pm local time (March 2, 1.30am IST).
With both these sides sitting in the top two positions in La Liga, the result of their meeting at the Santiago Bernabeu could go a long way to deciding the champion at the end of the season.
Player of the Month
Thibaut Courtois, the Belgium international stopper has been adjudged as the Player of the Month for January in La Liga after a stellar month between the sticks for Real Madrid.
Courtois was up against CA Osasuna's Sergio Herrero and RCD Espanyol's David Lopez, taking the gong with his side sitting pretty at the top of the La Liga.
Oliver Burke's goal in Alaves's win over Eibar was the first scored by a Scotsman in La Liga in over three decades.
The last Scottish goalscorer in the Spanish top flight was Steve Archibald for Barcelona in 1987.
Dembele's season over
Bad news out from Barcelona camp as the club announced that Ousmane Dembele will miss the rest of the season with a hamstring tear.
With Luis Suarez also out with a long-term injury, the blaugrana are short of options up front.
