Real Madrid’s below par performance on Saturday night fortunately wasn’t reflected in the scoreline as Carlo Ancelotti’s side extended their winning streak to 13 games with a 5-1 victory over Rayo Vallecano. There were two notable changes for the league leaders as Keylor Navas replaced Iker Casillas in goal and Isco made way for Gareth Bale. Cristiano Ronaldo was presented with his third Golden Boot prior to kick off for his mesmerising goal scoring feat last season. Madrid were averaging […]

  The time has come for this FC Barcelona board to step down and call for elections. There have been others, besides me, who have also asked for this that have been unjustly labeled as “spoiled.” It’s this sort mentality that seems to hold this club back when it’s time to demand for change. I always loved the spoiled fans argument when fellow fans disagree with your displeasure with your club. I never understood how criticizing your club is not […]

Many would have been forgiven in the summer if they thought James Rodriguez’s arrival at the Santiago Bernabeu as the newest galactico would spell the end of Isco’s career in the Spanish capital. Instead, Angel Di Maria was the victim; he joined Louis van Gaal’s new-look Manchester United. It has been a blessing in disguise, for Isco and Ancelotti as the baby-faced playmaker’s recent form is making sure Di Maria is not missed as much as he may have been. […]

  Following just eight matches, El Clásico rears its heads for both Barça and Madrid. Both clubs have had their tests already but this is their mid-term exam.

  On Wednesday night, Anfield will host two teams which have 15 Champions League titles between them, as Liverpool play the current European Champions Real Madrid.
