1-0 G. Higuain 11'
2-0 C. Ronaldo 18'
2-1 L. Messi 45'
the amount of goals higuain missed is ridiculous...
Madrid battered Barcelona the entire first half, before and after the red card. Totally outplayed, Barcelona's defence was useless. Credit to Barca for keeping themselves in the game with ten men, but Madrid deserved it after that beating in the first half.
Why is it that the so called football fans never give Victor Valdes the credit that he deserves. If it was Cassillas who saved all those one on ones with Higuain, you would all be hailing him as the best keeper in the World......... smh
Deserves?????? You did see the two goals he let in right? Sure he stopped a fair few, but the two he let in were not good goalkeeping I am afraid. Particularly the second where he should definitely have stopped Ronaldo's shot. He had ages to prep himself and Ronaldo hit it straight at him. Poor.
Barca played horribly, but Pedro and Alba missed some good opportunities. but hey, down to 10 men, and still without a doubt Valdes was the one who gave Madrid the cup! LOL Oh and Stunning goal by Messi, didn't think he was gonna make it from that far out.
well if blamed is to be given. The 2 goals in today's match carry as much blame to Mascherano and Pique. At least Valdes made some pretty good saves (though i still think Barcelona should get a better goalkeepper)
your beloved BArcelona got eaten by much more powerful. They got submerged from all sides. Valdes maybe gave the cup to Real but i can say Higuain didn't wanna send messi & co crying. it could have been 10-1 easy !
Awesome, awesome game. Higuain missed so many goals Real Madrid deserved to win. lol 2 disagrees. U mad barca?
i think they are mad and for Madrid fans do not forget to thank Valdes Hala Madrid :)
they should also thank Higuain for being that clumsy.
Madrid deserved it, Barcelona too sloppy Weird seeing modric with Real jersey, and he almost scored too
No One Stays At The Top Forever. Thank you Madrid <3
Yea Barca had this cup down for what, 3 years? about damn time for Madrid lol.
Will you say this each trophy Madrid wins? LOL
@doncorleone yes because its once in every half decade that they win a trophy
Hey guys if you havent joined the 11x2 fantasy premier league yet then please do so... $50 for the monthly winner and $500 for the season winner --- http://11x2.com/blogs/detai... --- And higuain could of had 2 hatricks
coulda, shoulda but didnt!
Ronaldo's goal :')
best goal of the tie.. not sure how many player could pull off that first touch
Madrid finally found a way to keep Iniesta, Xavi and Messi from having any time on the ball, especially in the first half. They pressed them high and tight to expose a frail Barcelona defense. It's not noticed half the time because they keep the ball so well most of the time.
Messi was far more involved in the match than Ronaldo, also scored a better goal which was down to class not a mistake by the defence.
Lol, you can tell this guy is still sucking his thumb and yelling from the fetal position.
LOL, I don't even support either team, just say it how I see it. To think that people actually believe that Ronaldo was MOTM. He scored 1 goal due to an awful mistake and had another shot put wide then we never saw him again. Best players in this game were Ozil, Di Maria, Alba and Messi. Nuff said... LOL, So basically your saying Im a Barca fan cause I think Messi played better than Ronaldo. Madrid deserved to win the game but Messi was more involved in the game out of the two. But neither were the best players on the pitch.
I agree, he wasn't man of the match but his goal was crucial. Hope you're not assuming that I thought this. You can see how I would guess you're a Barca supporter when you're quit to point out Messi's skill in his awesome free kick but dismiss Madrid's goals as mistakes. Which even if they were, sucks for barca, what are we supposed to do? NOT score them just because Barca messed up? lol Higuain and Ronaldo still have to finish, something Barca was piss poor at doing today, really unusual.
hum...Did you see the same match as we did?Yes , Messi's gola was awesome, but that's it. He never was a threat for Madrid again, except the last shot of the game that went wide. Ronaldo's flick was awesome, and he set up a lot of opportunities with great passes. I can't think of an action where he lost the ball today really, when messi was always controlled by Pepe.
Agree, it's Madrid's defense that have won them the recent El Clasicos. They simply do a much better job at stopping Messi than Barca does at stopping Ronaldo. Pepe was a beast through out the game and even created the first goal. Man of the match for me. I can understand why Messi hasn't scored against Real from open play for 6 games now. With Pepe and Ramos in defence, I don't think even Ronaldo can score.
hala madrid we deserved it edit: did i say something wrong to get disagrees
No, it's just mad barca fans ;)
We definitely deserved this win. Watched the highlights and how did we not score more than 5 goals?! Glad Higuain made his first one but he had so many chances! Better get on that practice field and finish his finishing!! Casillas was brilliant. Completely denied Barca, except for that goal by Messi which could have been avoided if the wall was setup correctly. Either way nice win over Barca for Madrid! Edit: Should have been 3-0 if Adriano hadn't tackled Ronaldo. Deserved red card. Nice to have Pepe, the defense is just not the same without him, even with Ramos there.
I can say the same about Barca at Camp Nou, Barca out classed Madrid then, but no "5 goals", in recent times the only 5-0 I can recall is the beating Barca gave to Madrid at the Bernabeu. 2-1 and Barca is down 10 men and playing horribly, if I was a Madrid fan, I'd be concerned...
Be concerned? Why? Lol Our goalie shut you down, Pepe took care to keep Messi quiet and we finished what we had to do. Higuain had a bad day and I should be concerned? Sorry man I am seriously laughing at you and your team. Poor goalkeeping, poor offense and poor defense and Madrid should be the one concerned? REAALLYY?!? 10 men sounds like crying to me, not our fault your guy had to tackle Ronaldo to prevent another goal. LMAO @ bitter Barca fans. REALLY man, really?! I always saw you as a level headed Barca fan.
why? Madrid won the cup! did Barca won anything with the 5-0? no they didn't!
Pepe kept Messi quiet? Barca was playing horribly as a team, Messi can't change that, he's one man, if the team's passing efforts fail, so will that of the best player of team, yet he stilled scored, one way or another. Higuain didn't have a bad day, he's been in benzema's shadow since last year, he's simply overrated, and Benzema is much better in Madrid(imo). Thought you would know that since you're a Madrid fan. Poor offense? No, it was poor defending and passing. Offense was fine just there wasn't any connection between midfield and offense. Obviously if you aren't concerned about madrid, you have no idea what they're doing wrong, where as I know what Barca is doing wrong, I'll let your team's past 4 games do the talking.

Messi was amazing, Pedro, Iniesta, Busquets, Alba, Song and Xavi were great too. Alexis was dissapointing and our defence without Puyol was disgraceful. Mascherano lacks positioning and height. While Pique is very slow. Without puyol at CB, we will struggle against big teams. Ronaldo benefited greatly from Alves being injured because Alves always shackles Ronaldo. Messi is under soo much pressure from Pepe, Ramos, Arbeloa, Alonso, Khedira and Marcelo and he still manages to produce magic. While Ronaldo usually had a one on one with Adriano or Pique. If only Alba could play Right Back, then Cristiano would have been neutralised.
going around so you can avoid hand shaking with the winner..!!!!
Messi is such a bitch. He tackles PEPE he says he didn't do anything and on top of that he is a damn bad loser. I never liked him but now i hate him even more. He's nothing but a dwarf doped with hormones
Shut up you fool. What gives you the right to hate Messi, you are the one who sounds like a disgruntled bitch. Stop wanking off to Ronaldo every time he gets the ball. Unless you are blind, both players clearly ignored each other. Everyone knows that Ronaldo was pumped full of supplements including HGH to change his physic and he is still weak. Ronaldo is just a Pre-madonna who spends more time in front of the Mirror than his girl friend (slightly Gay)
congratulations Real Madrid. knew you would beat Barcelona. This gives Real Madrid more confident to reach as far as Champions League Final. Can't see Barcelona get pass quarters.
i think barca is still a bit lost and they dont know how to play and palyers dont know where to be. i can see them doing better in 2 or 3 weeks and then they can beat anyone..
