A Better Lens at Spanish Football

  Barcelona’s 2-1 victory in last weekend’s Clasico was a vital one, in more ways than one.  It not only helped the Catalans get some breathing space in the race for the title, but It helped reinforce the good work Luis Enrique has carried out since taking over from Gerardo ‘Tata’ Martino in the summer. It seems quite incredible that there was talk of Luis Enrique losing his job earlier this season. There was criticism coming from the fans regarding […]

Barcelona's Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Jordi Alba celebrate a goal against Cordoba during their Spanish First division soccer match in Barcelona

Things are still going well for Barça. They qualified for the Copa del Rey Final, are in the driver’s seat in their Champions League tie against Manchester City, and currently are league leaders. However, all this talk about another Barça treble is premature at this moment. Barça’s disappointing loss to Malaga has become nothing but a distant memory. Barça seemed to struggle with taking advantage of opportunities to breathe down Real Madrid’s necks. Now, they are the ones breathing the […]

  Gareth Bale scored a brace to silence his critics as Real Madrid beat Levante 2-0 in a comfortable night, which saw the return of Sergio Ramos and Luka Modric to the starting line up. With the victory, Madrid ensured the gap at the top of the table remained a single point, ahead of El Clasico next weekend. Carlo Ancelotti couldn’t have hoped for a better start to the game, his team started with great speed and urgency – something […]

    Schalke were moments away from causing one of the greatest upsets in the history of European Football, having bullied Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu. Roberto Di Matteo’s team scored four goals beating Madrid 3-4 on the night, in what was a jaw dropping display by both sides. The turn of the new year has seen negative performances from Madrid, and yet again they started without urgency, Schalke were the better team to begin with. The reining champions […]

  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 […]

Real Madrid capitalised on Barcelona’s defeat to Malaga to open up a four-point lead at the top of the league after a 0-2 victory over Elche. Goals from Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo ensured Madrid put daylight between thems and their fierce rivals. The away side were completely dominant throughout the game but particularly in the opening half, though rather surprising, Carlo Ancelotti’s men couldn’t score in the first 45 despite creating a handful of very decent openings. Moments into […]

  Real Madrid defeated Schalke 0-2 to win their tenth consecutive Uefa Champions League game. Cristiano Ronaldo scored for the first time in three games, and then made an assist for Marcelo to double Madrid’s lead. It was another frustrating start by the Madrid players, who in the first twenty minutes last season had already blown away Schalke. This time though, Ancelotti’s front line lacked sharpness and his midfield lacked Luka Modric’ awareness and mobility. Lucas Silva struggled to begin […]

  Schalke host Real Madrid on Wednesday night in what will be a repeat of last season’s clash at the same stage of the competition. The seven time Bundesliga champions were thumped 1-6 the last time Real Madrid came to town, however the European and World champions aren’t looking as dangerous and well oiled as last season. Madrid, who defeated Deportivo 2-0 at the weekend, are still recovering from being humiliated by Atletico Madrid and this, for Schalke, could be […]

Real Madrid defeated Deportivo La Coruna 2-0 to ensure they stay top of La Liga for another week. Isco opened the scoring in the first half and Karim Benzema scored 18 minutes from time to secure what was in the end, three hard fought points. The away side came into the tie on the back of two consecutive wins for the first time this season, and they knew they were coming up against a wounded Madrid side who were humiliated […]

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 […]
