  Last year when the Derbi Madrileno was played in the Copa del Rey tie Real Madrid emerged the victor and with some ease too defeating the Colchoneros 5-0 on aggregate. This time in the round of 16 of the Copa del Rey los Rojiblancos exacted a sort of revenge that could be best described by a Guy Ritchie character from his film “Snatch.” Alan Ford’s character “Brick Top”  had a  very popular monologue, “do you know what Nemesis means? A […]

  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 […]

      So much has changed in terms of the average lifestyle in recent years, and especially since the turn of the new millennium. Some aspects of the modern world seem so everyday to us now, but only 15 or so years ago, these same activities and abilities would have seemed light-years away, and some mere impossibilities.     A different world In terms of the web, we can now order anything from around the world, watch anything we […]

  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 […]

  So Diego Costa might move to Chelsea in the summer. Big deal. Atletico can handle that. But losing Thibault Courtois at the same time? That might be a very different matter, perhaps even a matter grave enough to make Diego Simeone look carefully at whether he wants to hang around too. It seems Jose Mourinho just can’t stop damaging Madrid’s football clubs.   Atletico’s ability to regenerate up front is one of the natural wonders of football. The line […]

  Chelsea host Atletico Madrid in the return-leg of the Uefa Champions League semi-final on Wednesday night, with the tie finely poised at 0-0.  If one likes betting on Champions League matches, this is a hard one to predict. Jose Mourinho’s side were accused of playing ‘anti-football’ against their Spanish opponents last week, after putting on a completely defensive performance. Chelsea never looked like troubling Thibaut Courtois as the away side only managed to have five shots on goal. On […]

  This summer Spain will be looking to become the first nation to win back-to-back World Cup title since 1962. World Cup betting tips are suggesting that Vicente Del Bosque’s men have every chance in Brazil.   However, despite this, four years after winning its first world title, Spain is not as feared as before, but coach Vicente del Bosque still has the luxury of enough talent and experience to field two teams. Spain’s midfield remains the heartbeat to its […]

Iker Casillas is used to lifting trophies at major tournaments. But this season, he’s also been used to sitting on the bench, and that is perhaps a sign. A sign that the Golden Generation is reaching its close. The 32-year-old goalkeeper has been given reassurances from Vicente del Bosque, but with the coach not afraid to ring the changes, the Spanish captain could be just one of a host of players to be replaced by fresh faces this summer. Spain […]
