Football: Bale-less Madrid maintain chase of Barcelona

Real Madrid shrugged off the loss of the injured Gareth Bale as they beat Valencia 3-2 on Sunday to move back to within five points of Barcelona and Atletico Madrid at the top of La Liga. Barcelona were also victors on Sunday as an eight-minute hat-trick from Pedro Rodriguez helped them come from 2-0 down to win 5-2 away at Getafe. Bale's replacement Angel di Maria put Madrid in front with a fine left-footed drive on 28 minutes, but Pablo Piatti headed home an equaliser for the hosts six minutes later.

Football: Pedro out for 10 days due to leg injury

Barcelona winger Pedro Rodriguez will be out of action for 10 days after pulling a muscle in his leg during Tuesday's 1-0 World Cup qualifying victory in France, his club said Wednesday.

"Pedro will miss the match this Saturday against Celta and he's doubtful for next weekend's match against Mallorca," said Barcelona in a statement.

Football: Pedro double sees Spain past Uruguay
