A Better Lens at Spanish Football


  Los Blancos beat Malaga 3-1 on Saturday night, in what ended as a very bittersweet result. Gareth Bale suffered an injury one minute into the game, before Madrid talisman midfielder Luka Modric limped off in the second half. Goals from Sergio Ramos, James Rodriguez and Cristiano Ronaldo sealed three crucial points, but the injuries left the side in a deflated mood. A rather sluggish Madrid came out, knowing Barcelona had passed their Valencia test, so anything other than three […]

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 Having had his yellow card from the previous game rescinded, it meant Cristiano Ronaldo could start, and it was he who opened up the scoring with a rare free-kick.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's Cristiano Ronaldo

    Cristiano Ronaldo scored five times as Real Madrid ran riot at the Bernabeu against Granada, winning 9-1. Gareth Bale opened the scoring for Madrid, whilst Karim Benzema managed to score a brace amidst the Ronaldo show. Nineteenth placed Granada did manage a souvenir goal for their efforts. The game marked the return of James Rodriguez having missed nine games for Los Blancos, and Carlo Ancelotti slotted him straight into the starting line up as Isco was absent due […]

  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 […]
