Madrid Continue Winning Streak Barca, Face Injury Worries

Real Madrid need a late winner from Jose Callejon to beat Real Mallorca and ensure they continued with their amazing streak that has seen them win 3 fixtures since their infamous 3-1 home loss to Barcelona.

Madrid do not seem like letting go of the top spot at least for now and though their arch rivals Barca are yet to play, a win for the Catalans will only bring them to within 5 points of Madrid.

Barcelona prepare to face Real Betis today and with an injury hit squad, Pep Guardiola has been forced to use the club youth players through out the remaining period of the transfer window.
