  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 […]

Fernando Torres returned to the place where it all started, but El Nino’s return was overshadowed by Diego Simeone’s wizadry as Atleti defeated Real Madrid 2-0 in the first leg of the Copa Del Rey last 16 clash. Both goals came in the second half as Raul Garcia scored from the spot and later Jose Gimenez’ header doubled the lead from a corner kick. Both managers decided to make notable changes to their starting lineup, Simeone left out Koke, Arda Turan, Miranda […]

The prodigal son, Fernando Torres, has returned to Madrid and the club from which he grew up following and playing at, Atletico Madrid. Fernando Torres left Atletico Madrid in July of 2007 for Liverpool FC. When El Nino was at the Rojiblancos back from 2001 through to 2007 he tallied 82 goals for Atleti in 214 appearances. Much like the biblical story the prodigal son, when Torres left Spain for England in the summer of 2007 he brought his fantastic […]

The three remaining La Liga sides found out their fate in the last-16 draw for the Champions League on Monday afternoon. To be fair, all three will be reasonably confident of making the last eight, as the league will be hoping for maximum exposure and a repeat of the all-Spanish final in Lisbon in May. The first tie will be a repeat of last season, as Real Madrid will take on Roberto Di Matteo’s Schalke side. Ancelotti’s men will be […]

Wednesday evening’s match at the Estadio Vicente Calderon began with Atletico pressing high up the pitch. The first two goals did in fact come from rather awful defensive mistakes by […]
