I wonder why pepe was put back as a defender, he played much better as a midfielder, he and marcelo should watch themselves 2 avoid being sent out, overall an intersting match 2 watch.

pepe cnt play in midfield without getting sent off he has no discipline hes better off in defence

Real Madrid dominated the match. I am surprised Barcelona scored twice, Villa's goal was amazing.

Sahil1896d ago

finally someone appreciates that goal, it was brilliant :)

Corepred41896d ago

It was a pretty sweet goal.

Although I'm a Barca fan, I thought Madrid was taking this one, I didn't see any of Barca's player playing their best, although Villa's goal was amazing. Alexis Sanchez's debut was very good, he's very fast and with time he seems like he could learn to play very well alongside messi. I enjoyed watching Ronaldo beat himself over not scoring....and people think he is better than Messi??? LOL

Corepred41896d ago

Yup a lot people think he's better. So him being disappointed at himself because he didn't score satisfies you?

Nes_Daze1893d ago

Uh you make it sound like it's a weird thing, um yeah it's funny to see him overly frustrated when he realizes he's not a diego forlan or a messi.

Cris work very hard on that match he was everywhere.He is the leader on Rm Attack.Messi is a shit player without barca he needs barca teammates to shine where ronaldo can shine by himself!!!!

Nes_Daze1893d ago

Ronaldo shines? lol yeah until a defender gets in his way, then he'll start crying and moaning. While Messi just doesn't score goals, he makes passes, do you know who passed the ball to villa for the previous game's goal? Do you know who passed the ball to iniesta for the first goal on the 17th? Saying that Messi is a shit player just shows how much you know about football. Nothing.

Shouldn't article read: Real holds Barca since Barca are the defending champs?

Sahil1896d ago (Edited 1896d ago )

Barca holds Real despite of home advantage.. the writer means something like this

You only come to 11x2 on special occasions, el clasico.

Barca had 2 chances and got 2 brilliant goals, minus that and they did nothing. Madrid outplayed them; easily had more control, tempo and percentage of the ball. The referee also made some incorrect decisions plus Alves was on the floor 90% of the time.

Overall Madrid was the better time in every way and Barca looked weak. Real are strong competitors for everything this year and could possibly be the best team in the world at the end of it.
