    She's snagged her football hottie -- again! Jessica Szohr is giving love another try with Aaron Rodgers, Us Weekly can confirm. The Gossip Girl alum and NFL Green Bay Packers quarterback briefly dated back in 2011.

    "They got back together over the holidays. They spent New Years together with a bunch of mutual friends," an insider tells Us. "They broke up because her schedule was crazy for awhile and they just couldn't stay together in that situation but now they have been spending their free time together and things feel good. They fell right back into it." (conveniently after the gay rumors)

    Indeed, Szohr, 28, and her 30-year-old beau were spotted together on Jan. 27 at the That Awkward Moment film after party at Lucky Strike L.A. Live bowling alley. "Aaron and Jessica walked in holding hands," an eyewitness tells Us. The couple were also joined by Szohr's good friend, Taylor Swift. (The actress was previously featured in Swift's "22" music video.)

    The trio indulged on flatbread pizzas and had fun bowling. But Swift, 24, also squeezed in some girl talk. The insider adds: "Taylor was overheard giving [Jessica] relationship advice in the ladies room."

    Dear everybody,

    When we were asked by the NFL and Bruno to play our song Give It Away at the Super Bowl, it was made clear to us that the vocals would be live, but the bass, drums, and guitar would be pre-recorded. I understand the NFL's stance on this, given they only have a few minutes to set up the stage, there a zillion things that could go wrong and ruin the sound for the folks watching in the stadium and the t.v. viewers. There was not any room for argument on this, the NFL does not want to risk their show being botched by bad sound, period.

    The Red Hot Chili Peppers stance on any sort of miming has been that we will absolutely not do it. The last time we did it (or tried to) was in the late 80's, we were thrown off of 'The Top Of the Pops' television program in the U.K. during rehearsals because we refused to mime properly, I played bass with my shoe, John played guitar atop Anthony's shoulders, and we basically had a wrestling match onstage, making a mockery of the idea that it was a real live performance.

    We mimed on one or two weird MTV shows before that and it always was a drag. We take our music playing seriously, it is a sacred thing for us, and anyone who has ever seen us in concert (like the night before the Super Bowl at the Barclays Center), knows that we play from our heart, we improvise spontaneously, take musical risks, and sweat blood at every show. We have been on the road for 31 years doing it.

    So, when this Super Bowl gig concept came up, there was a lot of confusion amongst us as whether or not we should do it, but we eventually decided, it was a surreal-like, once in a life time crazy thing to do and we would just have fun and do it. We had given this a lot of thought before agreeing to do it, and besides many a long conversation amongst ourselves, I spoke with many musician friends for whom I have the utmost respect, and they all said they would do it if asked, that it was a wild trippy thing to do, what the hell. Plus, we the RHCP all love football too and that played a big part in our decision. We decided that, with Anthony singing live, that we could still bring the spirit and freedom of what we do into the performance, and of course we played every note in the recording specially for the gig. I met and spoke with Bruno, who was a beautiful dude, a real talented musician, and we worked out something that seemed like it would be fun.

    We recorded a track for the day, just banged one out from our hearts that was very like in spirit to the versions we have been playing live the last few years with our beloved Josh on guitar.

    For the actual performance, Josh, Chad, and I were playing along with the pre recorded track so there was no need to plug in our guitars, so we did not. Could we have plugged them in and avoided bumming people out who have expressed disappointment that the instrumental track was pre recorded? Of course easily we could have and this would be a non-issue. We thought it better to not pretend. It seemed like the realest thing to do in the circumstance. It was like making a music video in front of a gazillion people, except with live vocals, and only one chance to rock it. Our only thought was to bring the spirit of who we are to the people.

    I am grateful to the NFL for having us. And I am grateful to Bruno, who is a super talented young man for inviting us to be a part of his gig. I would do it all the same way again.

    We, as a band, aspire to grow as musicians and songwriters, and to continue to play our guts out live onstage for anyone who wants to get their brains blown out.

    Canadian band Skinny Puppy invoices U.S. Government after learning their music was used to torture Guantanamo detainees


    By now we’re all familiar with the U.S. government’s practice of using heavy metal to torture detainees. We’ve all seen “Zero Dark Thirty” and “Homeland”—we get the drill. Usually metal music is used for its general unpleasantness. It’s impossible to sleep through and just all-around unnerving.

    Except Canadian band Skinny Puppy had no idea their music was being used in the service of the U.S. military.

    While Skinny Puppy aren’t exactly metal they are pretty freaky. Freakier than anything that has any business coming from Canada, really. Their live shows feature costumes that look like this:

    And fake maiming, like so:


    So I guess they actually make a pretty logical choice when picking out music with which to torture someone.

    The Independent points out Friday that when Metallica learned their music was being used as a torture device at Guantanamo they sent the the government a cease and desist. Skinny Puppy, on the other hand, went the other way and just sent an invoice.

    “We heard that our music was used on at least four occasions,” Evin Key said. “So we thought it would be a good idea to make an invoice to the U.S. government for musical services.”

    Asked how he felt about his music being used to torture people, he said, “Not too good. We never supported those types of scenarios. Because we make unsettling music, we can see it being used in a weird way. But it doesn’t sit right with us.”

    The band has decided to name their next record “Weapons” in apparent protest. I wouldn’t hold my breath on that royalty check, though.

    In related news, President Obama promised to close down Guantanamo Bay this year in his State of the Union address, six years after promising the same when he was first elected.

    News that Iggy Azalea‘s much anticipated/delayed debut LP The New Classic now has a concrete release date (April 14) was a relief for long-suffering fans and now the Aussie femcee has given Azaleans another reason to celebrate. Her new single “Fancy” — a collaboration with English singer/songwriter Charli XCX— is due later this week.

    The 23-year-old posted the hand drawn cover on Instagram account over the weekend with the caption: “so this is happening sometime late next week.” It’s great to see that Iggy’s album campaign is back on track. The involvement of Charli XCX is also promising. Having penned Icona Pop‘s “I Love It”, she certainly knows her way around a catchy chorus and the rap diva really needs a radio hit to reach the next level.

    "The other day, Miley Cyrus dropped two titty photoshoots for two pretty major magazines and shit got a little bit of buzz because it was Miley Cyrus showing off her tits in photos for magazines…and this is apparently an outtake…that like the actual photoshoots will not throw a wrench in the internet and shut down servers…she’s cried wolf and drawn enough attention to herself that the only way she’ll shock or awe or even really excite the average person…is a sex tape…because no matter how over exposed any celebrity is, we will always watch them have sex…which isn’t shocking, but what is shocking is that a few years ago, when Miley was a 17 year old Hannah Montana…the idea of seeing her topless would have blown minds…and now that it’s happened so many times…no one gives a fuck…I wonder what it does to a girls self esteem knowing no one wants to see your tits…let’s hope it makes them next level their shit…"

    They seemed to be crazy about each other when they stepped out regularly in LA with her dog Hugo. But on Wednesday, two publications reported Ryan Gosling, 33, and his girlfriend Eva Mendes, 39, split up over Christmas. 'There is no ill will,' InTouch's source said. 'Neither is rushing out to date other people right now.' Life & Style Weekly's source added: 'They just knew it was time.' Ryan's rep did not return calls to MailOnline. Eva's rep chose to not comment.

    The couple, that started dating in 2011 when they filmed The Place Beyond The Pines, have not been seen together this year. Though the split happened over the holidays, they faced issues much earlier. They started having problems back in September,' a source told InTouch. 'They decided to quietly call it off for good around Christmas.' A big problem was they liked different things. Eva, who is the face of Thierry Mugler perfume, preferred to be in the limelight, while her partner didn't. 'Eva loves Hollywood, the parties, the glamour,' a source shared. 'She loves going out.' But not Ryan, who is 'introverted - very serious and a total homebody'.

    Another problem was getting hitched and having babies. 'They knew it was time to take the next step and get married,' a friend admitted. 'But neither was sure they wanted that to happen.' Mendes has said in the past she was not interested in becoming a mother. 'I'm certainly not thinking about being a mom,' the beauty has said. 'I can't imagine it. I'm too selfish.' The Only God Forgives actor, however, wanted a brood. 'I'd like to be making babies,' he said. 'But I'm not, so I'm making movies.'

    On Saturday, the Ghost Rider actress reportedly told airport security she couldn't do a body scan because she was pregnant. The star was in Los Angeles and on her way to New York City. But the Training Day actress has since denied it, with her rep explaining she always avoids the scanner and prefers the pat down. Meanwhile, Gosling has retreated to his native country.'He packed up and moved back to Canada for a while,' an insider told Life & Style. 'He felt like he needed time out of the limelight to refocus.' The cover girl last filmed How To Catch A Monster with Ben Mendelsohn. Gosling finished up a Terrence Malick movie about love and obsession against the Austin, Texas music scene. His co-stars are Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara.

    In the Hunger Games, President Alma Coin is described as being mono-chromatically grey - uniform, hair, and eyes which appear 'as if almost all the color has been sucked out of them.'

    But Julianne Moore had another reason for feeling grey as she reported to the Atlanta set of Mockingjay: Part 2 on Wednesday - the death of her frequent co-star Philip Seymour Hoffman.

    The 53-year-old actress appeared downcast as she entered a building while outfitted in the same District 13 costume Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth were also seen wearing.

    Moore released a statement: 'I feel so fortunate to have known and worked with the extraordinary Philip Seymour Hoffman, and am deeply saddened by his passing'

    Frequent co-stars: The franchise's final chapter will be the fifth film that Julianne worked on with the Oscar winner following Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1, Magnolia, The Big Lebowski, and Boogie Nights

    Lionsgate released a statement expressing the studio's condolences: 'Philip Seymour Hoffman was a singular talent and one of the most gifted actors of our generation. We're very fortunate that he graced our Hunger Games family.'

    The Hunger Games team wrote: 'Philip was a wonderful person and an exceptional talent, and our hearts are breaking. Our deepest thoughts and condolences go out to his family'

    The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 will be released November 21 and Part 2 comes out November 20, 2015.

    Paul Walker's daughter is set to inherit his $25 million fortune. The 40-year-old actor, who perished alongside his friend Roger Rodas on November 30, when the car they were travelling in lost control and crashed in Santa Clarita, California, named his 15-year-old child, Meadow Rain Walker, as the sole beneficiary of his entire estate in his will. The Fast and the Furious star appointed his father Paul Sr. as the executor, who has filed the will with a probate court, according to TMZ. Meadow is set to live with Paul's mother Cheryl Walker, who will take on the role of guardian, with the permission of her own mom Rebecca Soteros.

    Paul's dad petitioned to have the court appoint the late actor's mother, Cheryl, as Meadow's legal guardian and to look after her $25 million fortune, as per his son's instructions in the will. Paul's will was drawn up in 2001 and it is not clear when the clause about the youngster living with Cheryl was added but it is likely to have been updated after Meadow moved from Hawaii to live with her dad. Her mother Soteros is happy for Meadow to live with Paul's mother because the teen wants to remain in California. A court hearing is set to take place later this month. It was previously revealed that Paul was planning to give up acting to spend more time with Meadow and was thrilled she had moved in with him.

    His close pal Ronn Shikari told MailOnline: 'We were really good friends and whenever he was in Hawaii, I would always see him. He's such a great guy and about as anti-Hollywood as you can get.'There’s this image of the movie superstar with the swagger and arrogance and being the big man, but Paul was none of that, he wanted to just be a regular guy. 'He was a family man and I know it hurt him to be spending so much time away from Meadow on location; he loved being with his daughter, she was his world. That's why he wanted to retire from acting and talked to his family about it, as he’d achieved everything he wanted to achieve. 'He earned millions from the last Fast and Furious. The big reason he wanted to quit acting was so that he could spend more time with Meadow. It's a shame that it could never happen.' Friend Vince Krause confirmed that the most important thing in Paul's life was his family and not his acting career.

    'Paul was one of the best people I have ever known,' he added. 'He was as selfless a person as I have met. He loved being a father and it was very clear that his daughter was the most important thing in the world to him. 'Being a father myself, it was one of the topics we discussed most.' Last year, Walker admitted that he only recently found out just how important his daughter was to his life after she moved from Hawaii to live with him in Santa Barbara. 'She's the best partner I've ever had. I've never had anything like this in my life. I've been so transient; I've been on my own since I was 16,' he said. 'There's a part of me who feels like I'm making up for lost time.'

    The floor never likes losing to NBA players, and it proved that once more when Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love took a nasty spill during the fourth quarter of Tuesday night's contest against the Los Angeles Lakers.

    While driving the lane, Love collided with Robert Sacre and couldn't stop his limbs from flailing in every direction possible. With his leg kicking up in the air, the power forward went down hard until his lower regions made hard contact with the hard(er)wood.

    Fortunately, it appears as though the Minnesota superstar avoided any serious injury that could have occurred from whiplash or the back of his head hitting the floor. He actually came back into the game for his free-throw attempts and remained to help the 'Wolves hold off the Lakers.

    Amazingly, he actually managed to play some solid defense.

    Even more amazing, that's something he normally doesn't do.

    That said, Love was noticeably hurt before limping to the bench and letting Luc Richard Mbah a Moute close out the game for Minnesota.

    Assuming there are no lasting repercussions—and there could be from a fall that hard—you have to be impressed with Love's intensity and ability to shove aside the pain. Actually, you can be impressed regardless of his long-term health, though we should all be hoping for the best.

    Here's hoping that pun was intentional.

    The power forward may not have been on the court to finish the 10-point victory, but he did post yet another monster double-double. It was his league-leading 41st, as he finished with 31 points, 17 rebounds and three assists. And that wasn't the only piece of history he made during the successful outing.

    The double-double won't be remembered, though.

    It's the fall that will be the lasting memory from this game. And even more so, the fact that Love got up.

    WWE News: Roman Reigns needed stitches following Raw match

    WWE wrestler Roman Reigns needed six stitches to close a cut on his right eyelid following Monday's Raw. He suffered the injury during The Shield vs. Rey Mysterio, Big E Langston, and Kofi Kingston match. WWE has released photos of Reigns getting stitches at WWE.com.

    Powell's POV: Reigns was back in the ring at the Smackdown taping on Tuesday, so it appears it was just a simple cut. It was a tough week for eye injuries in WWE with Reigns, Naomi, and John Cena all suffering eye related injuries. Obviously, it appears the Reigns injury was the least severe of the three.

    WWE News: Naomi Injury Update

    WWE Diva Naomi suffered an eye injury during a match against Aksana on Monday's Raw. "She appears to have a bruised orbital bone or a bruised eye socket, as well as a scratch on her cornea," WWE physician Dr. Chris Amann told WWE.com.

    Powell's POV: The real question is how is Aksana's knee after she rammed it into the eye of Naomi. Okay, maybe not. It was an ugly move and Naomi deserves credit for getting through the post match smiles and arm raise despite being in obvious pain.

    J.R. Celski gives US best hope for short track speedskating medal

    Apolo Anton Ohno took his soul patch, bandanas and eight Olympic medals into retirement, leaving a gaping hole in short track speedskating.

    J.R. Celski is poised to step into the void as America's best hope for a medal in the wild and wooly sport known as roller derby on ice.

    The 23-year-old from Federal Way, Wash., will compete at his second Olympics looking to add to the pair of bronze medals he won at the 2010 Vancouver Games, when Ohno was ending his career as America's most decorated Winter Olympian.

    Celski qualified in all three distances for Sochi, in addition to the 5,000-meter relay. He's ranked among the world's top 10 in the 1,000 and 1,500, and just outside the top 10 in the 500.

    This time, Celski is healthy heading to the Olympics. At the U.S. trials four years ago, his right skate sliced his left leg in a crash, spewing blood on the ice. He bruised his femoral artery and came within inches of severing it, which could have been fatal.

    The accident required six hours of daily physical therapy, which robbed him of practice time. But he bounced back five months later to make the podium in Vancouver.

    "My goal was just to get to Vancouver. I did that and the medals were just a bonus," he said. "This time, I'm going to Sochi healthy and I'm looking forward to doing some damage."

    Celski took a year off after Vancouver to re-establish his goals and mindset. Once he returned and started winning races, he rekindled the love he had for the sport. He welcomes assuming leadership of the U.S. men's team from Ohno, who mentored Celski and remains one of his biggest supporters.

    "I am very happy to be in the position I am now. I looked up to that guy for a long time," said Celski, who like Ohno is from the Seattle area. "This time is completely different for me mentally, physically, I'm healthy. I'm going to ride that momentum."

    In Vancouver, a team led by Ohno and now-retired Katherine Reutter earned a total of six medals — two silvers and four bronzes — to trail only powerhouse South Korea in the standings.

    The Americans will be hard-pressed to equal that showing in Russia, but the men have the stronger team.

    Unlike the U.S. women, who didn't qualify a relay team for Sochi, the U.S. men will be a gold-medal favorite in the 5,000 relay. Celski will be joined by Eddy Alvarez, Kyle Carr, Chris Creveling and Jordan Malone in making up the team. The Americans were top-ranked during the World Cup season.

    "We all practice together every day and that's going to make a huge difference," Celski said.

    Their togetherness is in stark contrast to the turmoil that roiled the U.S. short track program beginning in 2012.

    Coach Jae Su Chun was accused by a dozen national team members of physical, emotional and verbal abuse. He also was alleged to have ordered speedskater Simon Cho to sabotage the skates of a Canadian rival.

    Chun denied all allegations, and other members of the team came to his defense. He's serving a two-year suspension through October, and Jessica Smith is the only skater he coaches to have made the Olympic team. He plans to be in the stands in Sochi, although he won't be allowed inside the racing area.

    Celski was among Chun's accusers.

    "Everybody had their choice," Celski said.

    Canadian Stephen Gough was brought in to oversee the fractured national program, and tread lightly in trying to bring cohesion in the months leading up to Sochi.

    "He made sure that the right people were in place," Celski said of Gough's staffing choices. "They're a lot of the reason why we are the team we are today. Everybody is meshing really well together. That's what the biggest change has been in the past 1 1/2 years is really figuring out who are the key people that are going to raise this team's spirits."

    Like Ohno, who had varied interests off the ice, Celski is into music and filmmaking. Last year, he produced "The Other Side," a documentary featuring Grammy-winning duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and other hip hop acts in the Pacific Northwest.

    Having endured the turmoil to make a second Olympics, Celski is now optimistic enough to consider the future.

    "I love to speed skate," he said. "I wouldn't be surprised if I convince myself to keep going."


    Estimated 700K celebrate in Seattle

    SEATTLE -- Hundreds of thousands of notoriously loud Seahawks fans cranked up the volume Wednesday, cheering, chanting and going berserk during a parade and ceremony to celebrate the first Super Bowl victory in the history of the franchise.

    The mood in Seattle was electrified as the parade featuring the NFL champions began near the Space Needle and made its way to CenturyLink Field, the home of the team.

    AP Photo/Ted S. WarrenPolice estimate about 700,000 people -- more than the population of Seattle -- attended the Seahawks' Super Bowl parade on Wednesday.

    At a ceremony inside the stadium, the team thanked its loyal followers -- the 12th Man -- capping a day of boisterous celebration that drew an estimated 700,000 revelers to Seattle.

    Players were introduced by the order of their jersey numbers and ended with No. 3, quarterback Russell Wilson, who walked onto the field pumping the Lombardi Trophy in the air to thunderous applause. "Our plan is to win another one for you next year," Wilson said later.

    Coach Pete Carroll led the crowd in a "Seahawks, Seahawks" chant and said the team will be back. "We're just getting warmed up, if you know what I'm talking about," he said.

    "I've waited my entire life for this," said Nick Sutton, who watched from Westlake Center and considered it a highlight when he threw a football to one of the players along the parade route who threw it back to him. "It's surreal. It's hard to believe. Seeing this now, it's finally sinking in."

    Hundreds of thousands of fan lined the streets of downtown Seattle early in the day and cheered as the players rolled by.

    Thousands of students apparently skipped school to attend. Seattle Public Schools said more than 25 percent of the district's 51,000 students were absent in the morning. By comparison, about 5 percent were absent the day before. The school district also said 565 teachers were absent, far more than usual.

    "This is a historical event, once in a lifetime. To not show up would be blasphemy," said Jesse Lake, 36, a carpenter from Port Orchard, who stood in the packed parking lot outside CenturyLink Field to greet the team as they arrived.

    Shawn Cooper and Marlana Studebaker of Covington staked out a spot hours before the parade started and displayed supersized photo cutouts of Wilson and cornerback Richard Sherman, prompting many fans to stop and take photos.

    "This was a long-awaited win. It's well worth the wait," Cooper said. "They're years ahead of their time, which makes me believe there's another one coming."

    SportsNation: Not-so-Super teams

    SportsNationThe Seahawks celebrated their first Super Bowl win Wednesday. Can you name the 13 franchises without one? Quiz! »

    Dakota Heaphy, 20, and friend Ellie Hergert, 20, drove all night from Cheyenne, Wyo. -- more than 1,400 miles away.

    "My boss is a Broncos fan and said we kicked their butts and deserved to go," Hergert said.

    Revelers packed the 2-mile route, wearing blue and green wigs, waving flags, scarves and signs, and breaking out into song and dance.

    The Washington National Guard chauffeured many of the players in Humvees and other military vehicles under blue, sunny skies in cold temperatures. Elected officials rode along in amphibious vehicles used to take tourists around the city.

    Players enjoyed the celebration as much as the fans.

    Running back Marshawn Lynch sat on the hood of a vehicle carrying the Sea Gals cheerleaders. He tossed Skittles -- his favorite treat -- into the crowd.

    Other Seahawks players threw jerseys and T-shirts to fans while waving blue "12" flags as a sign of gratitude.

    Boisterous fans observed a "moment of loudness" at 12:12 p.m. Crowds also gathered in Spokane, Olympia and elsewhere in the state to celebrate the first championship in the 38-year history of the franchise.

    Many fans had camped out overnight to reserve front-row seats along the route, braving freezing temperatures. Others perched on window sills and balconies, climbed trees and pillars, or sat on sturdier shoulders to get a better view.

    At Westlake Center, smartphones and cameras were thrust into the air whenever players rolled by.

    Seattle city officials asked the public to keep cellphone use to a minimum to keep lines free for emergency use. There were some reported difficulties with 911 calls getting through, said Jeff Reading, a spokesman for the mayor.

    Chris Hoops, a sales worker from Everett, and his school-aged daughters left home at 7 a.m. to get a good spot.

    The girls, 11-year-old Emily and 8-year-old Bella, were bundled in sleeping bags at his feet. They warmed up when they were asked whether they were sorry about missing school. They shouted "no" in unison.

    "I like the Seahawks," Emily said. "They were really good this season."

    Cristiano Ronaldo Banned 3 La Liga Matches Following Red Card Assessment

    Cristiano Ronaldo will serve a three-game ban following his red card during Real Madrid's recent 1-1 draw with Athletic Bilbao, according to AS:

    Does Cristiano Ronaldo deserve a three-game ban?
    Yes No Submit Vote vote to see results

    The Spanish football association provided their verdict after an incident that could severely impact Los Blancos' chances of capturing this season's La Liga title.

    Ronaldo, who appeared to slap Bilbao's Ander Iturraspe during the hard-fought affair on Feb. 2, may have been further punished for his offensive gesture after the card was shown, per Goal.com.

    Atletico Madrid fans shouldn't celebrate too readily. Ronaldo is free to play in both legs of the upcoming Copa del Rey semifinal between the two sides, as noted by ESPN:

    Instead of missing vital cup matches, Real will have to make do without their superstar for La Liga games against Villarreal (H),

    Carlo Ancelotti's men have barely set the world on fire in recent weeks from an attacking sense—scoring five goals in four games, compared to five in one before that, per WhoScored.com. However, they will be confident of overcoming their imminent schedule without Ronaldo in the team.

    The 2013 Ballon d'Or winner certainly didn't receive any favours from the Spanish board, who revealed Ronaldo's suspension on his birthday.

    Ronaldo has scored 22 goals and provided six assists in 21 La Liga appearances this campaign, according to WhoScored. His most recent sending-off was the eighth of his career, ending Real's 10-match winning streak in the process.

    Andres Kudacki/Associated Press

    Marca has confirmed the club will appeal Ronaldo's ban, a decision amplified by Ancelotti's reaction to his player's dismissal:

    Real Madrid's appeal will be based on three arguments. Firstly, the club believes the ball was still in play at the moment when Ayza Gamez pulled out the red card.

    In addition, 'Los Blancos' deem that the contact made between Ronaldo and Iturraspe cannot be considered as a "knock", as it was described in the referee's match report.

    Real also believes that there is no way of proving that the gestures made by Ronaldo touching his cheek were directed at the fourth official, which was also noted down by match official from Valencia.

    Real need their match-winners at this stage of the season and will be anxious to overturn such a hefty punishment.

    The club currently linger three points behind Atletico at the top of La Liga and remain locked with Barcelona on 54 points. There is little room for things to go wrong, suggesting Ronaldo's presence is of key importance if they are to gain the Spanish crown.
