Madrid played a better game, by a lot I think. Barca looked like they were finally waking up, and instead of taking advantage of Real Madrid wanting to push forward, they lost all possession in the midfield. Not having Xavi really hurt them as well.

Needless to say, there was an obvious penalty not called, but oh well, refs make mistakes and Barca wasn't in it to win. They'll need this long bittersweet summer....

Definitely not a penalty. Ramos pulled his leg right before Adriano came

Penalty missing at the end.

Feels so good to be on the winning end of the Classico's again! lol Totally different game when Ronaldo came in. From half time I didn't really hear Messi's name for a good 20-30 minutes. I don't know what's going on with Barca, if we finally have them figured out, but they better know Milan and all teams are going to be studying this tape!

didnt get to watch the match. :(

glad madrid got the win. but i thought ronaldo was suspended for this match. guess i was wrong.

judging from recent results though, can we say with a high degree of certainty that clubs know how to stop barca? or is this just a rough patch for barca and they arent playing like themselves.

checking some match stats, did barca really have 3 shots on goal the entire match? WTF

You can't "figure out" a team, no idea where you got that from but all great teams have their ups and downs. They have been playing horribly, no patience, no energy, no creativity, etc.

So Barca haven't beaten Madrid in over a year.

Remember hearing Barca fans saying last year, "If Madrid win the league without beating Barca, that would be embarrassing." Madrid did 2-1 last year, Barca haven't! So is it embarrassing?!

Nes_Daze3562d ago

Not really, it wouldn't be either way, plus how many times do Barca and Madrid face during the season? Why not take into account the 3-2 win in the Supercup? Plus there's other matches to take into account, drawing or losing to much inferior teams in a league to me would be embarrassing by those standards.

RGB3562d ago

Yeah, forgot about Supercopa, most people consider that to be a friendly game though since it has little importance, like the Community Shield.

They've played 6 times now; Madrid have 3 wins, Barca 1 and 2 draws.

2/3 wins for Madrid in the season's defining week for the club. After the last two games I can see Madrid doing well on Tuesday.
