1-0 A. Iniesta 15'
1-1 C. Ronaldo 20'
2-1 L. Messi 45'
2-2 K. Benzema 82'
3-2 L. Messi 88'
Probably the best clasico of 2011 except for a few moments in the end, great game of football :)
i dont know about u but the fight made it more spicey ;-)
aren't people getting bored of this already! all year long, only 2 out of 20 teams in Spain compete for EVERYTHING! the sad truth is the only matches worth watching from Spain all year are Real vs Barca and THAT'S IT!
And it's always the same little Argentinian that comes out on top.
"only 2 out of 20 teams in Spain compete for EVERYTHING! the sad truth is the only matches worth watching from Spain all year are Real vs Barca and THAT'S IT!" The blame for this is money - top teams like Barca and Madrid have the money to buy all the top players from all over the world. If A and B team have all the top players how do you expect the other teams to be competitive?
This was a really good game. And it looks promising for Real even the loss. I think this year we will win. Messi cant deliver all season long, and the Real squad is more likely better.
i also like Real, but lets not lie to ourselves, barça is still better. Real's squad has potential to be better, but with the stupidities pepe, marcelo, ramos, carahlo and khedira make, we wont get there. oh, and get rid of mourinho too, he doesnt know who to play
I agree, madrid DO have what it takes to be the best but mourinho is not the type of coach madrid needs. He seems to hit a point when he doesn't know what else to do he starts acting childish and unprofessional. Just look at the video clips. And the worst part is its rubbing on the players. Marcelo and Pepe are world class players but seems to have been acting this way since mourhino came into their lives. Once he's loosing he doesn't go back and try to figure out a way to improve his odds and win. Instead he results to childish actions. They need a coach that can suceed when they face tough opponents, not one who is good when their team is superior and wins againts easier opponents. Bring back a coach like vicente del bosque, some one with more class who is respectable and represents madrid not himself.
why are you getting disagrees above? its like everybody is supporting Real Madrid now. Well I cant say that I dont feel bad for them, after all they prepared so much for this game only to lose it against a still better Barca Team
foreal, loving your team is one thing, but denying the better skills of another is lack of football knowledge. lets face it, right now barcelona is better, maybe real's redemption will come with that one 7 year old
Messi is the key. But Barcelona will win without him as well. Maybe not tonight, but all over. This is no time for discussing the league, cause this was the best match I have seen in a really long time. And the season in Spain didnt even start yet!
Thrilling game! One of the best i have seen so far! The end spoiled the night.. But what do you expect from these two teams? A nice friendly game with no fighting? I think not... Pinto got sent off without even playing for the second tome! Gotta be a record :)
I hate pinto he did that last time.. But yeah good game, real look better than last season sooo should be a good season. Alsooo when marcelo came on i said i bet hes going to get sent off loool
that was totally unnecessary from marcelo.. the tackle on fabregas.
I disagree. That was his welcome back, lol.
Real Madrid always resorts to a short game of rugby when Barca shows them that they are the inferior team, pathetic.
Yeah and I always like how Barca with their wonderful saying "mes que un club". Thats because it is more than just a football team its filled with actors and a bunch of cry babies who apparently can't physical football.
The alleged diving by Barcelona occurs only when they play dirty teams such as Madrid(undr mourinho), Barcelona doesn't have a choice as it is the only way to level with Madrid's dirty tactics. When Barcelona plays other teams such as the last final of the CL against Mutd, there wasn't any incident, the game was clean, and the 2 sides respected each other. The simple fact of the matter is, Madrid is not a real football team, it's losing respect under mourinho.
Please point out the dives on these last two games. There are a ton of bad intentions from Pepe, Marcelo and one from Sergio Ramos. Sorry but madrid doesn't know how to loose and the sad part its only a few players and the coach that act this way. Players like CR7, Xavi Alonso, Casillas that play good and don't give up but other players like Pepe and Marcelo start acting stupid and fouling players to where they get red carded and put the rest of the in a worse position.
how can you not dive when you are playing a team with 10 ppl than are only trying to kill you all the time? Go Away kid, accept it, the same way Mourinho cant accept it, You guys Lost.
... so might as well hit them... ;)
Didn't get to watch much of this apart from the last 15 minutes as I was in the gym. Came back just in time to see two goals and Marcelo deciding to listen to the voices in head and completely snap. What else did I miss?
Didn't you know, Marcello is trying to give Fabregas a warm welcome lol
Less Fighting in the normal time, Inury time made up for it :)
Real will never amount to anything major, they'll live in the Barca shadow for many years to come. Way too many egos and wannabe tough guys on Real Madrid. Did you see what Mourinho did? Even he is losing his marbles. This is not a Mourinho team.
I think Mou was just enjoying himself, I kinda found out mildy amusing even if its not appropriate. Sure RM have been in the shadow of barca last couple of seasons but that will stop this year.
lol being unprofessional and childish in a football game is amusing? I found it unprofessional, and part of the reason they lost..again..is because they don't grow up and they use dirty tactics, once RM slows down Barca just starts making beautiful passes and runs them over.
Lol Real Madrid have never been in Barca shadow, in fact is Barca who been living under Real Madrid Shadow for many decades, they just recently stepping out of it since 2009
Only bandwagon jumpers are the ones that don't realize that. Real Madrid doesn't live behind anyone's shadow.
I entirely agree with the bandwagon statement Either way we can all agree it was a good game, fairly even home advantage matters and we didnt finish all of our chances in bernabeu
FAB is a traitor. muahahhahaaahahhaha
love how Jose Mourinho poked the assistant coach of Barca :L
Would love to see Barca win without the Referee's intervention, cheating or being racist!
I'd be interested to know how Alves, Keita and Abidal feel about the Barca fans making monkey chants about Marcelo! Maybe this spawned Marcelo to snap! Why isn't Xavi, Pique and Pep talking about the Racism in their club? Why hasn't UEFA punished Barca because of this? These are the real questions! Madrid played way better over the 2 legs and Barca did the usually cheap tactics to win! Barca are disgraceful to say the least!
Is there a video showing this? I didn't notice or hear any of this. You must be a RM fan or just a Barca hater. If you come arguing about "cheap tactics" when madrids fouls were the only thing that everyone saw on both of these games. First have madrid stop playing as dirty as they do out of fustration of not being able to stop barcelona. Then move to fix some diving that happens every once every full moon.
Watch the match again! Marcelo was at the end of racist jibs every time he touched the ball. Look what happened to Etto as well at Barca! Alves is the biggest diver in the game, the dive in the Semi-Final that got Pepe sent off was embarrassing and the whole sporting world was saying how disgraceful it was. (Rio Ferdinand, Spanish media and Rory Mcilroy to name a few) http://www.goal.com/en-us/n... Oh and look at this prime example of Referee favouritism towards Barca. Ronaldo running at pace plays a through ball to higuain, gets wiped out by Pique and falls. Mascherano dives, Higuain slots in a perfectly good goal and referee calls freekick to Barca! SERIOUS! http://www.youtube.com/watc... Barca the club of cheats, racists and getting the ref on their side by bullying tactics!
i love how madrid plays it reminds me of how players used to be able to play lk 20 years ago yes yes football has evolved! but players also act more nowadays, before all the fouls that were witnessed yesterday wouldve been normal fouls, no cards. Football was a lot more physical before and i miss it.
Why hasn't UEFA punished Barca because of this? Maybe for the same reasons that they didnt punish Real for doing the same against Etoo some years ago. Not defending racism - Just a reminder that it happens in Madrid as well.
You do realize there were some racist chants about Alves at the bernabeau. It's funny how ppl forget bout the wrong things being committed within their own club. "Maybe this spawned Marcelo to snap! " Fans chanting racism comments against you and that makes you right to kill a player(who's just started playing for the club, don't know how it feels like to play in an el clasico.. fabregas) @Sokrates: totally agree.. both clubs are equal as far as dirty tactics are concerned, but those horrid tackles could seriously take somebody's life.
3rd video isn't working and anyone got a link to the fight?
