Pressure on for Isco after Real Madrid return as Granada continue reurgence

Here are your Spanish football morning headlines for November 2.

Isco fit and ready

Isco Alarcon returned to the Real Madrid squad over the weekend after a number of weeks out injured.

He wasn’t ready to play a large amount of minutes in the win over Elche, but he is said to be fit and ready ahead of a clash with Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday.

Time is running out for Isco at Real Madrid amid poor form, and he will be desperate to hit the ground running after his latest injury.

Rayo and Celta draw

Rayo Vallecano played out an entertaining goalless draw with Celta Vigo on Monday night.

Rayo had won their previous five games at home, a run they couldn’t continue, but they still managed to pick up a useful point against a Celta side who have underperformed so far this term.

Levante still winless

Levante are now the only team to remain winless in La Liga after losing 3-0 at home to Granada on Monday.

Goals from German Sanchez, Luis Suarez and Antonio Puertas saw Granada on their way to three points, and their resurgence continues.
