A Better Lens at Spanish Football

Atleti hasnt won the 'Derby Madrileño' since 1999.

  Real Madrid left the Calderon stadium without a goal on Tuesday night, some would say it was down to Jan Oblak’s superhuman heroics in goal, but I believe we again witnessed the same thing which happened versus Barcelona – a serious lack of composure in front of goal. Carlo Ancelotti has a problem, his front three are bottling chances in big games. Against Barcelona – in what looks like a La Liga defining defeat – Madrid battered, bothered and […]

Real Madrid 3-0 Eibar There wasn’t a shock at the Bernabeu on Saturday as Real Madrid scored three to cruise past fourteenth placed Eibar. Having had his yellow card from the previous game rescinded, it meant Cristiano Ronaldo could start, and it was he who opened up the scoring with a rare free-kick. It was fairly all one way traffic in the Spanish capital, and even with Toni Kroos unavailable [suspension], the midfield looked capable enough to allow Madrid to […]

  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 […]

The home fans in Germany are capable of creating an atmosphere that can make […]

After years of being the underdog and living in the shadows of their great cross-city rivals, the red and white half of Madrid are the ones who had smiles from ear to ear this week. The 4-0 victory over Real Madrid at the Vicente Calderon was more than just three points, it was the day the champions came out of their shell and proved they can live with the rival who once gave them the fear. The Rojiblancos created another […]

Atletico Madrid humiliated Real Madrid at the Estadio Vicente Calderon, beating the current league leaders 4-0. The home side ran riot with goals from Tiago, Saul Niguez, Antoine Griezmann and Mario Mandzukic, as Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale were mere spectators. The last time Real Madrid lost at the Calderon in the league was June 12th 1999, and hadn’t lost three straight games (in all competitions) at the ground in the last 64 years. Surely Atleti would fear their mega-rich […]

He looked a pale shadow of his former self, unhappy, out of form and devoid of hunger. That is just some of the ways in which you could describe Fernando Torres’ career since his £50 million move from Liverpool to Chelsea. Even when he finally departed Stamford Bridge to join Milan, he didn’t look like a man who really wanted to be in Italy. Torres scored a total of 21 goals between his time at Chelsea and Milan, but more […]

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 […]

La Liga has found itself in another ridiculous situation when it comes to players’ lack of self-control and the league’s failure to properly discipline them. If the league wants to set an example by punishing players, then they need to wake up and revamp its disciplinary committee. January saw the return of La Liga football after the winter break and we already have seen some players commit terrible acts on the pitch that are worthy of a lengthy ban. Yet, […]

  Atletico Madrid’s Copa del Rey hopes have been snuffed out in a fiery encounter at the Estadio Calderon. The first half of the second leg would be the main talking point and perhaps one of the best halves played in football in Spain this year. The first leg at the Camp Nou ended in a 1-0 victory for Barcelona against Atletico Madrid. The lone goal came from a penalty from one Lionel Messi, fortunate too since the Atleti goalkeeper […]
