Ronaldo resting, Isco's 2 goals keeps Madrid on title track

Madrid went behind a second time, before Morata equalised and Isco scored a late victor to keep Los Blancos in the clear.

'With the team we have, we can do damage to any side - our DNA at Real Madrid is to fight to the end and we have done that.

And with rumours of a six-year deal being on the table, Isco said he will make the "right decision" along with Madrid.

Far from being bitter with head coach Zidane, having made only his 15th league start of the season, Isco says he can not fault the former Galactico as Madrid sit pretty at the top of the table.

Ramos sent his header off target from a corner before Isco finally broke through Sporting's tiring rearguard when he drilled a right-foot shot past Cuellar which nestled just inside the post.

Morata scored nine minutes later, heading home Danilo's cross, and Madrid pressed for a victor with Isco robbed of the ball when poised to shoot after another bewitching dribble and substitute Marcelo drilling wide.

Despite dropping points as they drew with Atletico Madrid last time out, Real Madrid actually managed to extend their lead at the top of La Liga to three points after second-placed Barcelona lost to Malaga. There is little time to rest and those who played today were phenomenal. "We need everyone and everyone responds".

Barcelona hosts Real Sociedad on Saturday, its first match since losing 3-0 at Juventus in the Champions League this week.

Only captain Sergio Ramos and Fernandez Nacho retained their places as James Rodriguez, Lucas Vazquez, Morata and Marco Asensio all coming in along with Portuguese defender Fabio Coentrao for a rare start.

Zidane added: 'I feel unfair to all of those who do not play - there are 24 players and it will always happen.

"We did very well from the first minute to the last, Sporting had two chances and scored two goals, while we made many chances so the result is deserved".

Just when it looked like the La Liga leaders had run out of time to conjure a victor, Isco drilled a low shot into the bottom left corner from the edge of the penalty area.

John Cena Proposes To Nikki Bella At WrestleMania
Bryan was asked which SmackDown WrestleMania match he was most looking most forward to, and he said Bray Wyatt vs. Cena and Bella would win the match, but the true story came in the moments following their victory.

Zidane said it was Isco's best match with Madrid. "We'll have to see what his injury is", Zidane said.

Sporting went back ahead through a header by Mikel Vesga, who had already set up Cop's opener, which looped over the goalkeeper five minutes after halftime.

A looping header from Mikel Vesga put the Asturian side back in front five minutes into the second half.

He then came out on Twitter and said "I'm not joining Barca" after he received countless messages from fans of both Madrid and the Catalan club on the social networking site urging them to commit to their respective clubs. "I don't know why people are surprised when I say I want to play more".

Gareth Bale will miss Real Madrid's trip to Sporting Gijon on Saturday and faces a race against time to be fit for Real's Champions League quarter-final second leg against Bayern Munich on Tuesday.

Deportivo moved away from the drop zone with its first win in five rounds.
