It was the third meeting between the two clubs this season already and the seventh meeting in 2014, but both sides were merely sparring for the first ten minutes. Atleti drew first blood and typically it came from a set-piece. Alvaro Arbeloa was at fault to give a cheap […]

    Real Madrid take on Atletico Madrid on Saturday night in what will be the third meeting between the two clubs this season already, and the seventh meeting in 2014. Both Madrid clubs are behind Barcelona in the league table, having already squandered points. Last season’s league winners Atleti played out a 0-0 draw away at Rayo Vallecano on the opening day and Real somehow blew a 0-2 lead against Real Sociedad to lose 4-2. Having played so many […]

  Real Madrid have been drawn with Liverpool, Basel and Ludogorets as the Uefa Champions League group stages return. The Kings of Europe survived a potential group of death, but the encounters against Liverpool will inevitably be mouthwatering.

  Real Sociedad stunned Real Madrid at the Anoeta Stadium, as they secured a 4-2 victory having been 0-2 down. The away side started very brightly and were playing incredible football. Luka Modric made a positive run before his dangerous cross was headed for a corner. From the resulting corner, Toni Kroos whipped in a cracking cross that was met by Sergio Ramos to score with a header, and it took just six minutes. Moments later it could have got […]

  If any other team in Europe would allow their two most important midfielders to leave, they’d struggle to pick themselves up for the new season, but it seems both Angel Di Maria and Xabi Alonso were surplus to requirements at Real Madrid. Lets start with Di Maria. The Argentine completed his €75million move to Manchester United to become the most expensive transfer in the history of English football and the most expensive sale in Real Madrid’s history. El Fideo […]
