Spanish record of 39 games unbeaten (Source: AP) Top News It’s been nearly a decade since Real Madrid was this dominant heading into the halfway point of the season Not even in 2012 when it last won the Spanish league title With Cristiano Ronaldo at his best and Zinedine Zidane flourishing in his first full season as a head coach Madrid looks closer than ever to ending its title drought in the league Madrid also had the lead after 16 matches in 2014-15 when it had also won the Champions League and the Club World Cup That team eventually collapsed under coach Carlos Ancelotti and ended the season in disappointment “We all know what happened in 2014 after we won the Club World Cup It can happen at any moment” said Zidane who had been an assistant to Ancelotti “I think that the season will be long and difficult for us If we work hard I don’t think that things will change” With two more games without a loss Madrid will match Barcelona’s Spanish record of 39 games unbeaten a mark set last season TITLE RACE After struggles by defending champion Barcelona and city rival Atletico Madrid Real Madrid has a three-point lead going into the break It also has a game in hand at home against Valencia because of its participation in the Club World Cup Madrid the only unbeaten team in the league has been nearly perfect except for a spell of three consecutive draws beginning in September It won seven of its last eight league games since then with the only setback a 1-1 draw against Barcelona at Camp Nou when Sergio Ramos scored a 90th-minute equalizer Second-place Barcelona has already lost twice including at home to promoted Alaves The Catalan club drew three straight including twice at home before finishing with two consecutive victories Atletico enduring its worse slump since coach Diego Simeone took over is only sixth nine points behind Madrid PICK OF THE PLAYERS Cristiano Ronaldo enjoyed a remarkable year but had an up-and-down start in the league thanks in part to a knee injury that kept him from playing in the first few games Lionel Messi also missed some matches because of an injury but has been thriving recently and finished the year as the league’s leading scorer with 12 goals along with Barcelona teammate Luis Suarez On loan from Manchester City Samir Nasri has been crucial in Sevilla’s third-place campaign while Pablo Piatti’s first season with Espanyol has been highly successful with five goals and six assists the most in the league EMERGING TALENT Iago Aspas’ outstanding season with Celta Vigo helped him land a spot in Spain’s national team for the first time in his career He is one of the tournament’s leading scorers with 10 goals three of them scored in the last three matches before the break He has succeeded despite a Celta team that has been struggling and is only 13th in the standings The 29-year-old Aspas who had a stint with Liverpool in 2013-14 returned to Celta a season ago after a year on loan with Sevilla SURPRISES Real Sociedad started the league with a 3-0 home loss to Real Madrid and had only one victory in its first four games It all improved quickly though and the team led by Brazilian striker Willian Jose heads into the break in fifth place ahead of Atletico Madrid and just behind Sevilla and Villarreal A two-time champion in the early 1980s Real Sociedad had an emphatic 2-0 win over Atletico and drew Barcelona 1-1 in a game in which it deserved to win POINTS TO PROVE Coach Diego Simeone needs to put Atletico Madrid back on track quickly if he wants the team to contend for another league title After experimenting with different formations the team struggled with inconsistency and has already conceded 14 goals only four less than the 18 it conceded in all 38 games last season Among its four losses _ which is two less than it had last season _ was a 3-0 setback against Madrid at home Former Italy coach Cesare Prandelli also has to turn things around at Valencia which is winless in seven league games and has won only twice under his command In Barcelona Neymar hasn’t scored in nine official matches his worst slump since coming to Spain For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: PTI | New Delhi | Published: April 16 2017 5:08 pm Rohit Sharma was dismissed in a recent IPL game due to an umpiring howler (Source: BCCI) Top News Erratic umpiring has been a bane of Indian cricket and as it gets highlighted through the IPL former international umpire K Hariharan says the standard can improve by having mentors guide the “clueless” officials “Like the selectors are constantly watching the players from the sidelines you have to have mentors for umpires who can monitor their performance during the game and point out their positives and negatives right after the game” Hariharan told PTI in an interview “As of now there is nobody to guide Indian umpires on the domestic circuit We all know some umpiring howlers have been committed in the IPL and that can happen human errors happen all the time “But there should be a group of mentors to tell them after the game where they went wrong where they went right were they standing in the right position things like that” said the now-retired umpire who officiated in two Tests and 34 ODIs Hariharan in fact is part of the BCCI review committee which is supposed to periodically propose changes for improving the umpiring standards in domestic cricket The panel comprises former umpires Vijay Chopra I Shivram V K Ramaswamy besides Hariharan himself “We have already submitted our report (to the BCCI) in which we have proposed the appointment of mentors for the top 25 umpires of the country The board will decide the future course of action” said the 61-year-old adding that 110 umpires are certified by the BCCI at the moment With the IPL attracting global attention the social media has been abuzz with posts on the embarrassing umpiring errors already committed in the competition Especially the on-field duo of CK Nandan and Nitin Menon have had a horror tournament so far Both of them had allowed David Warner to take strike the next over after he struck a four off the last ball of the previous over in the game between Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad in Mumbai Days before at the same venue the same pair was officiating on the field when Rohit Sharma was adjudged lbw despite getting a huge inside edge before the ball hit the pads That glaring mistake prompted veteran batsman Subramaniam Badrinath to slam the prevailing umpiring standards “Seeing a lot of domestic umpires in this seasons @IPL and the umpiring standards have been way below par…arguably the worst “Among all #IPL seasonspoor umpiring standards have prevailed for ages in domestic circuitits just being highlighted through #IPL2017” Badrinath had tweeted Hariharan found the decision involving Warner unacceptable “The third umpire should have stepped in that scenario However not hearing big edges can happen especially in the IPL where you see big noisy crowds” he said “Overall I would say that Indian umpires are not bad at all One has to keep in mind that umpires are always judged by their mistakes not by the good decisions they make Hariharan felt the advent of the Decision Review System has added to the pressure on the umpires “I say DRS or no DRS the umpire should be making minimum mistakes” Internationally Sundaram Ravi is the lone Indian umpire in the 12-member ICC elite panel including four Englishmen three Australians and one each from Sri Lanka Pakistan South Africa
