Thanks for joining us today, but that's not the football over for today, oh no. Chelsea and Spurs duel at 17:30 GMT, follow updates of that one here.
- Unbeaten Real go seven points clear at top
- Real hanging on towards end as Sporting miss penalty
- Sporting sit in relegation zone
Real Madrid had to ride their luck, but they move seven points clear at the top of La Liga for now.
Sevilla can cut that down to six later, and Barcelona can take it back down to four tomorrow.
Real Madrid should be OK now, they win a corner with seconds left as Isco's shot is blocked.

We are entering the final two minutes. Can Sporting Gijon carve out one more chance?
Cristiano Ronaldo does have the hat-trick chance as Sporting switch off at the back but his shot is easily saved by keeper Diego Marino, who hasn't had to make too many difficult stops really.
After 18 minutes, it felt like the story of this game was going to be how many goals Cristiano Ronaldo would score. That feels like a long time ago now.
Duje Cop has another chance to level for Sporting Gijon but Keylor Navas keeps out his effort.
Real Madrid, on their overall performance, deserve to be ahead. But they are really riding their luck.

Oh no, Sporting miss the chance to equalise. Duje Cop aims for the top corner but it's too high and too wide. And Real remain in front. Sickener for the visitors.
A huge moment here as Nacho pulls down Victor, seconds after he comes on.
Sporting make an attacking change as striker Borja Viguera replaces goalscorer Carlos Carmona. And a second change, Moi Gomez coming off for Victor.
Real Madrid make a double change. James Rodriguez, who has done OK but not anything amazing on his audition for Gareth Bale's place, is replaced by Marco Asensio.
And captain Sergio Ramos comes off - meaning he won't be suspended for next weekend's El Clasico, because he wasn't booked today. Marcelo comes on, meaning Nacho will slot into centre-back.
Not too much to report at the moment, Real Madrid are looking comfortable, but they are only one slip away from dropping two points. And in rainy conditions anything can happen.Copyright: AFP/Getty Images
Cristiano Ronaldo flashes a header just wide for Real. Neither side have made a substitution yet, will that change soon?Copyright: AFP/Getty Images
Real Madrid left-back Nacho bombs forward and has a shot but it's - for my third entry in a row - a Real effort directly at keeper Diego Marino. Guys, try hitting it at the parts of the goal where he's not standing.
Real Madrid's support start to celebrate what they think is a third goal but Karim Benzema's header from six yards is straight at the goalkeeper. Anywhere else, and he's doubled Real's advantage.

After 20 minutes it didn't feel like we were going to have any kind of contest but Sporting really are in this. They have a cross, which Real clear at the second or third time of asking.
Sporting have scored at least one goal in each of their last six La Liga games at the Bernabeu.
Karim Benzema gets a kick in the head when he tries to head home a cross. He seems to be OK though. Real could do without losing him at the same time as Gareth Bale. Or else the 'BBC' would just become the C.
