Madrid sports newspapers highlight today the fact that Real Madrid reached the top of the league for the first time since September thanks to their 2-0 victory against Granada.
“Real Madrid stands above all,” titles Marca. Meanwhile, As’ main headline is “Up high.”
“Madrid went to bed as leaders, waiting for Atletico Madrid and Barcelona to play today,” As reports. “Cristiano Ronaldo offered the fans his Ballon d’Or and scored again,” the Madrid daily points out.
Marca emphasizes the fact that Los Blancos reached “a record seven games without conceding a goal.”
As highlights that “the pressure is on Barcelona” now, as they face Malaga at the Camp Nou. “Rayo Vallecano test Atletico’s doubts,” they add.
If both Atletico and Barca fail to win, Real Madrid will lie on the first position of La Liga at least until next weekend.
