Today, Spain and Holland renewed acquaintances for the first time since the 5-1 drubbing the Oranje gave La Roja in Brazil during their opening World Cup match. Many thought that Vicente del Bosque would step down after that disappointing World Cup where the defending champions exited without qualifying from the group stage. […]

  Real Madrid suffered a 1-0 defeat against Athletic Bilbao courtesy of a marvelous first-half header from Aritz Aduriz. This followed last week’s dull performance against Villarreal which ended 1-1, making it five points dropped in a matter of six days. The dropping of these points now means Barcelona can leapfrog Madrid at the summit of La Liga, if they beat Rayo on Sunday night. What’s gone wrong with the side that boasted a 22-match winning streak pre-2015? First and […]

Barça’s 2015 continue to be one full of progress ever since that loss to Real Sociedad with the minor hiccup of the Malaga loss.

After a 7 game winning streak, some were thinking Barça were back. This nice winning streak has Barça back on the right tracks but there’s still room for improvement for Luis Enrique and his players. Ignoring the need for improvement though could be costly. Barça’s resurrection, or rejuvenation, came after their last loss away to Real Sociedad right after the winter break. The days following that loss turned into a hurricane for the Blaugrana after Messi did not show up […]

    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 ‘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 […]
