A Better Lens at Spanish Football

xavi-hernandez-barcelona

Another season nears an end with sadness as news of Xavi leaving the club at the end of the season was confirmed by none other than the player himself. After 17 years and much success, one of Barça’s legends will walk away from the club. Without a doubt, no one will ever replace the legendary Xavi. Xavi’s career is one many footballers can only dream of. A legend for both club and country, Xavi is Barça’s all-time leader with titles won, […]

Well, there we have it. It could have been the second all-Spanish Champions League final in succession, but only one of Spain’s big two will be representing La Liga in Berlin on June 6. Barcelona safely negotiated their passage through to their first Champions League final since winning the trophy at Wembley four years ago. Despite going behind to Mehdi Benatia’s early header, it only took Barca and Neymar eight minutes to end hope of any Bayern comeback. Neymar added […]

FC Barcelona survived another difficult test and found themselves en route towards a magical season. The magic of Messi is a big reason why. The battle between Bayern and Barça was supposed to be a battle of wits between Pep and his friend Lucho. This was supposed to be the fight of the year; two heavyweights going at each other for a shot at the Champions League title shot. However, the fight was decided by a late TKO from Messi. […]

  Real Madrid’s league chances are all but mathematically over after their disappointing 2-2 result against Valencia at the Bernabeu on Saturday night. The result means Barcelona move four points clear with only two games remaining – due to the strike – allowing the league leaders enough comfort that they can even afford to lose at Atletico Madrid next week. The night started and ended with straight faces – from the whistle signifying a minute silence to the last whistle […]

  Juventus defied the odds and defeated Real Madrid 2-1 in the first leg of their Uefa Champions League semi-final. Madrid-bred Alvaro Morata scored an early goal for the home side, but Cristiano Ronaldo’s goal allowed the reining champions to settle into their hostile surroundings. In the second half, positivity from Juventus led to a second goal, Dani Carvajal’s tackle led to a penalty which Carlos Tevez tucked away. It was a terrific atmosphere set by the Juventus fans, they […]

  As Bayern Munich travel to Camp Nou to face Barcelona on Wednesday evening for a clash of the two biggest clubs in world football.

Bayern go to Barcelona in good spirits, despite losing 2‐0 at Bayer Leverkusen on the weekend. The game meant nothing for the […]

  Real Madrid ended Sevilla’s 15 month unbeaten home record after winning 2-3 courtesy of a Cristiano Ronaldo hat-trick. Madrid had gone into a two goal lead before Sergio Ramos gave away a penalty, which Carlos Bacca converted. Iborra’s goal ten minutes from time had kept Sevilla in the game, but Real held firm and closed out an important win keeping them two points behind league leaders Barcelona. The Ramon Sanchez Pizchuan is one of the toughest place to visit, […]

With the season heading towards to a superb finish, Barça’s magical season is entering the final stretch. With the domestic double still in their favor, Bayern are the only side standing in their way of a Champions League final. Can you believe it’s May already? Feels like yesterday when Luis Enrique took over Barça and had them go through some highs and lows. The lowest of all lows, came in early January and since then, Barça have been a different side. […]

He looked pretty happy to me.

  Wednesday. Real Madrid vs Almeria. 84 minutes played, Javier Hernandez flashed in a cross, with Alvaro Arbeloa and Cristiano Ronaldo lurking at the back post. Arbeloa beat Ronaldo to it, scored, it was the third for Madrid on the night. But then, then, social media erupted calling Ronaldo a “cry-baby”, an “awful teammate” and a “very dislikable footballer”. Jesus Christ! Here we go again. Throughout his career, Cristiano Ronaldo is a man who has defied footballing and athletic norms: […]
