  Gareth Bale’s penalty five minutes from time ensured Real Madrid overcame a stern test away at Córdoba. Carlo Ancelotti’s side struggled throughout, as the home side went ahead from the spot after just two minutes, and late in the game Cristiano Ronaldo was given a straight red card for kicking Edimar. Sami Khedira replaced Isco in the starting eleven, the Spaniard didn’t make the squad due to an injury. Córdoba had only beaten Real Madrid once in the 18 game […]

  Chelsea continue to show their run of dominance in the English Premier League this following weekend after defeating Swansea City 5-0 in Wales. This week in Spaniards abroad we will continue to praise two “blue” Spaniards and give accolades to the young man who was once considered to Lionel Messi’s replacement at Barcelona. Much to the chagrin of many “furia roja” fans Diego Costa still provides the goods for his club as opposed to his newly adopted country. Jose […]

Barcelona’s attacking triumvirate of Messi, Suarez and Neymar each tallied a goal pass Moya and the Colchoneros to take home all three points back on the eleventh of January. Hopefully this time around Atletico […]

  Last year when the Derbi Madrileno was played in the Copa del Rey tie Real Madrid emerged the victor and with some ease too defeating the Colchoneros 5-0 on aggregate. This time in the round of 16 of the Copa del Rey los Rojiblancos exacted a sort of revenge that could be best described by a Guy Ritchie character from his film “Snatch.” Alan Ford’s character “Brick Top”  had a  very popular monologue, “do you know what Nemesis means? A […]

  Atletico Madrid continued their recent dominance over city rivals Real Madrid by knocking the defending champions out of the Copa Del Rey. Diego Simeone again got the better of Carlo Ancelotti as Fernando Torres scored a brace at the Bernabeu to give his team a 2-2 draw on the night (winning 4-2 on aggregate). Ancelotti demanded that the Madridistas created a hostile atmosphere for the game, it was created, helped by the presentation of Cristiano Ronaldo’s Ballon d’Or, but the […]

  He was the only logical winner. Only severe injustice could have robbed Cristiano Ronaldo of world’s greatest footballer crown. After a memorable and record breaking year, Portugal, Real Madrid and the world’s finest retained the most prestigious trophy for any footballing individual, Cristiano won the Ballon d’Or [ahead of Lionel Messi], for the second consecutive year [a career third].

Victor Valdes had been strongly linked with various clubs since leaving Barcelona on a Bosman last summer. He was all set to sign for AS Monaco before he fell foul to a cruciate ligament injury, which forced the French club to abandon the idea of bringing in the Spanish international and instead they opted to sign Dutch keeper Maarten Stekelenburg instead. Now the Spanish second-choice stopper has signed a deal to join Louis van Gaal and fellow Spaniards Ander Herrera, […]

  Gareth Bale provided a critic silencing performance as Real Madrid defeated Espanyol 3-0 in their first home game of 2015. The Welshman played a part in the opening goal scored by James Rodriguez and then scored a free-kick to seal the three points for the league leaders. Carlo Ancelotti fielded his strongest possible starting eleven, Sergio Ramos [rest], Dani Carvajal [suspended] and Luka Modric [injured] were the only ones missing out. Madrid started well, dominating at the business end […]
