A Better Lens at Spanish Football

The best photoshoppers and title-crunchers are at usually on the ‘Clasico’ nights. Without further ado, let us look at what the geniuses had on their mind after last night’s game.

Marca : Poco Madrid, Mucho Barça(=Too little Madrid, a lot of Barça)

Marca summing the game up quite well in 4 words. A picture of Cristiano Ronaldo in one of his typical gestures of disappointment against a backdrop of Barça players celebrating the goal.

As: Ganó el mejor (The best [team] won)

Again, very simple yet accurate title. No hyperbole. The face of Casillas says it all. He has seen better days in this rivalry.  They also mention that Cristiano had one of his worst games and Messi, Iniesta had a great night. Also mentioned at the top “the fine stylist defeated the hard puncher”

Sport : Heroes! (Heros) – comeback win with a lesson in football

Sport went simple too. Looks like the theme is simplicith this time around. 4th victory of Pep in in Bernabeu in his 4th year at the helm of Barça. Mighty impressive stat.

El Mundo Deportivo: Golpe de Campeón (blow of a champion)

EMD was the most dramatic. “A shower to Madrid” (Spanish way of saying they thoroughly dominated Madrid)
