A Better Lens at Spanish Football

Man Utd v Everton

  We take a look back to England this week and we will head north to Manchester where Manchester United hosted Everton FC. There are three Spaniards that play for Manchester United but we are going to show you one Spaniard who occasionally is neglected by “La Roja” and often catches some fire at the club he is playing for too. David De Gea currently has been United’s keeper for three years and with this campaign it will be four. […]

  Cristiano Ronaldo scored his third hat-trick in the last four league games as Real Madrid hammered Athletic Bilbao 5-0 at the Santiago Bernabeu. Karim Benzema also grabbed a brace as the Basque’s poor start to season continued. The home side started really brightly and as the atmosphere within the stadium began to heat up, it wasn’t too long before Madrid opened the scoring. The world’s most expensive player – Gareth Bale – looped in a right-footed cross which picked […]

  Real Madrid managed to tighten their grip on Group B as they laboured to a 1-2 result against a spirited Ludogorets side. The Bulgarian champions took a shock lead but goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and a late winner from substitute Karim Benzema ensured the Whites took all three points back home. Carlo Ancelotti made changes to his usual side and even tinkered with the formation. Isco and Asier Illaramendi joined Luka Modric and Gareth Bale in a four man […]

Jose-Callejon-Napoli

This time instead of focusing on one Spaniard abroad, I decided to give the spotlight to two players that play in the same country and in the same league. These two players both play in Italy one in southern Italy for Napoli and the other in the north for Juventus. Jose Maria Callejon has been one of the stand out players for Napoli this season. While Alvaro Morata in the north, playing for Juventus, has been enduring a more tumultuous […]

  Real Madrid travel to Bulgaria to play against minnows Ludogorets Razgrad on Wednesday night as they look to tighten their grip at the summit of Group B. The reigning kings of Europe blew away the Swiss champions Basel 5-1 in the opening group match and are expected to put on another goal-scoring display against the Bulgarian champions. Since their defeat to Atletico Madrid, Los Blancos have improved in each game and I expect Carlo Ancelotti to unleash a star-studded team. […]

Prediksi-BATE-Borisov-Vs-Athletic-Bilbao-1-Oktober-2014

  Athletic travel to Belarus to take on BATE not in the best of form, that being said BATE are in the same boat as their La Liga counterparts. It is the first time both sides have come head-to-head in any European competition. Valverde’s side go into this fixture on the back of a patchy start to the season. Since the comprehensive victory over Napoli, it seems that the Basque side have hit a bit of a rut. Recent back-to-back […]

Atletico-vs-Juventus-Champions-League-tip-300x160

The Rojiblancos will return to Champions League football come Wednesday and Diego Simeone will be very anxious to get his side back to winning ways in Europe. The first match for Atletico de Madrid was indeed a tough one when the Colchoneros traveled to Pireaus Greece to take on Olympiakos. Atleti fell to the Greek side 3-2 and conceding three goals in one match was a fact that was unheard of last campaign. In light of the loss in Greece […]

Cristiano Ronaldo

    Real Madrid came through a potentially tricky contest away at El Madrigal as they defeated Villarreal 0-2 with first-half goals from Luka Modric and Cristiano Ronaldo. The home side controlled the first 15 minutes as Madrid struggled to settle. The ‘Yellow Submarines’ were playing with a high intensity and were dominating their opponents in the centre of the park, spraying the ball out wide and causing havoc for Madrid’s centre-backs. Carlo Ancelotti’s side reflected their previous performances this […]

FBL-ITA-SERIEA-MILAN-JUVENTUS

  The much criticized and once prolific Spanish number “9″ finally made his Italian Serie A debut for the Rossoneri on Tuesday against Empoli. AC Milan would suffer a massive set back inside the first 21 minutes of the match in Tuscany. Goals by Lorenzo Tonelli and Manuel Pucciarelli had put Empoli ahead 2-0. “Il Diavolo” would go into halftime with a rather important lifeline coming from a player many have thought to be “beyond damaged goods.” Fernando Torres went […]

    Cristiano Ronaldo scored four goals as Real Madrid defeated Elche at the Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday night. The referee awarded three penalties in total, two of which were controversially awarded either side of a Gareth Bale headed equaliser for Los Blancos. Carlo Ancelotti made a few changes to the weekend hammering of Deportivo La Coruna, resting Iker Casillas, Luka Modric, Karim Benzema and Alvaro Arbeloa, who were replaced by Keylor Navas, Isco, Asier Illaramendi and Dani Carvajal. The […]
