Well played Real Madrid, Barcelona didn't looked to be in control at any point.

i know but did not think that Madrid will play with the same players many players will rest for united match and i even will not be surprised if ronaldo did not play.

Congrats to Madrid, they took good advantage of a broken Barcelona. No coach, actually, the opposite, a horrible one. Madrid defended well and waited for their chance to score patiently, Barca once again, frustrated themselves up front, no creativity, no ideas.

Now their defense, Puyols is too old, I don't know how many times I'll say that till the coaches realize this, Pique is good but lacks focus.

Horrible defending, no coach, frustrated offense,3-1 was actually a good result, could've been worse. Good thing la liga was won already..

Hala Madrid nojoda!!!! Controlled the match barca looked scared the whole time with no self esteem. Bring on saturday.

Lets see those naive ManU supporters, you know who you are :p, saying they wont score more than one goal at old trafford.

Is the jury still out on the messi v ronaldo bit? Or does the copa del rey not matter at all this season? Loving it.

You actually think this puts Ronaldo ahead of Messi overall? lol slow down, I'd give Varane and Di Maria some credit if I were you.
lugia 4000  +   1003d ago
Overall, perhaps, perhaps not. But Ronaldo was way better than Messi today.
Nes_Daze  +   1003d ago
@ lugia, today yes he was better, he has been better in copa del rey and in CL for his team.

Madrid have figured Barca who only try to play through the middle. Barca looked dangerous when they played wide but then kept coming back inside. If United play with width we can win it.

I think one Barca fan came through and "disagreed" all of these posts

hahahaha :p
looks like it.

mezzo, krazy, buddy, nez, RGB....yip all the regulars are here. so i can only assume its the user Asmith.

when barca and messi are winning i see him quite a lot down-talking other teams. now, no show.

stealth disagrees...got to love them.

Hey kingpin, I told you before I actually can't stand Barcelona and I was shouting for Madrid last night so I don't know how you came to that assumption! I could never stand their diving antics. I've had disagreements with you in Messi vs Ronaldo debates but that's a different issue.

On topic, Barcelona looked leaderless as they did against Milan, great counter attacking game by Madrid. I expect them to win on Saturday too and really take it to utd as well.

if madrid play like this against united, i dont think united is going to have a chance. this defense was tight. verane is a beast of a defender at just 19. damn. this guy looks like he could be another maldini.

lets hope they keep this form till the end of the season. its good to watch real play at this high standard we expect from them.
asmith2306  +   1002d ago
Agreed. Their counter attack was first class, and they did it without a striker for the last 25mins. They just had Ronaldo and di maria on the wings. Why don't they play like this in away games all the time? Their away form has been terrible this year.
KingPin  +   1002d ago
awe asmith. you were the only regular missing from the convoz. thought you gone quiet. my bad bro. apologies all round.

as to why madrid don't play like this every week is a mystery to me. if they played like this, they would be on barcas tail in the league no doubt. but i guess because it was BARCA they raised their game. personally i thought this performance was even better than the one against united and in that match i thought they played well. just hard to wonder whats going on at madrid.
