Photo by DSanchez17 Barcelona won their game 1-0 (again). Messi missed a sitter and did not score. Real Madrid scored five against a weak and rather pathetic Real Betis who just gave in to the pressure that comes when you are at the white house. The only downside to this weekend was that Ronaldo did [.
Some people don't like to do two things (amongst countless others). They don't like to change and they don't like to admit a mistake. Benitez certainly is one of those people. Benitez came under severe criticism after last weeks performance against Sporting Gijon. The media blamed Benitez for employing a system which restricted the [.
Lets cut to the chase quickly here. Real Madrid have a huge problem it seems. As far as the attacking trio of Real Madrid is concerned, no one knows where to find who. Some say Gareth Bale's position isn't behind the striker as a free roaming number 10 because his traits are not suited to [...]
The post Bale, Ronaldo and Benzema: 3 Pointers on Who Should Play Where For Real Madrid appeared first on Real Madrid Galacticos.
Barcelona (and Atletico Madrid as well if you care enough) won itsopening fixture by a single goal margin. The only positive that came out of Barcelona performance against a very strong (at home only though) Athletic Bilbao team was, if you are a Real Madrid fan, that Messi did not score. He didn't even get [.
Ronaldo, it seems has had enough of Real Madrid even before working under Rafa Benitez. And he cannot he loathed for it because this was the deal with Cristiano Ronaldo from the start of his Real Madrid career i.e he is a mercenary.Reports coming out from Madrid state it clearly that this would be [.
Almost none (honestly speaking?It is probably none) of the pundits have got Real Madrid winning La Liga this season. I did come across one who had Real Madrid winning Copa Del Rey (which might be a blessing in disguise as that would get Benitez fired for good from Real Madrid) and that is about [...]
Finally Real Madrid have signed a player they actually need and who would have guessed that it would be none other than Benitez of all coaches who would give it this transfer a green. Since Ronaldo joined Real Madrid, not a single Real Madrid manager has actually signed a player which was needed [...
While Barcelona bask in their less than impressive performance against Sevilla in the Super Cup (which Barcelona won in extra time with two goals from Messi in the first half of the match. Final score was 5-4 to Barcelona. Well done.) Real Madrid look concerned about the commitment being shown by its star players to [.
Jose Mourinho said the other day that he thinks Hazard was better than Ronaldoas far as last season was concerned. Mourinho even compared Messi, Ronaldo and Hazard. Credit to him, he said what was probably true as far as last season was concerned, that Messi was by far the best player last season. While onecannot [.
A lot of speculation has been going around with regards to the future of David De Gea of Manchester United (and Sergio Ramos of Real Madrid). Apparently Real Madrid want David De Gea after Casillas was shown the door couple of weeks ago. Casillas did break down during his last press conference as a [.
Real Madrid may have won against Manchester City, in a meaningless ICC match in Australia of all places, 1-4 thanks to goals from Ronaldo and co but that doesn't mean Florentino Perez has hit the jackpot with Benitez. To be honest I don't even know why Real Madrid (mainly Florentino Perez) have signed him.
As is customary for Real Madrid to sign big name, big game players whenever Perez is at the helm, there are many names being linked with Real Madrid for this summer's blockbuster transfer window. For now, Real Madrid has done virtually nothing in this transfer window. Apart from a deal, which is still not [.
Before we get to what has happened in 6 months to Real Madrid, let's talk about what is going to happen in the next few months: Real Madrid (or more precisely Benitez) is going to sit on its butt throughout the transfer window while Barcelona snaps up future stars from Europe and America. Real Madrid [.
Real Madrid defeated or rather mauled Barcelona to death 3-1. It could have been , should have been, something like 6-1 for Real Madrid but Real Madrid just did not look like the side which scored 3 goals previously. Champions League game midweek might have taken out a bit too much from Real Madrid as [.
First straight up facts. Neymar scored the first goal of the game. A cheeky long ball from Suarez (the kinds he was famous for at Liverpool) saw Neymar take on Carvajal and Pepe. Quite inexplicably, both defenders felt like they had hit quicksand and Neymar got away from them with a single touch on [.
Why would DI Maria leave Real Madrid (European Champions and statistically the greatest club in Europe i.e the world) for Manchester United who would not be even playing Champions League this season. For starters it is because Real Madrid had pecuniary issues with Di Maria's agent about how should the player of his [.
I don't know, maybe its the summer season but the reports coming out in the media about some of the transfers Real Madrid is reported to be involved in is crazy, to say the least. Someone needs to remind Ancelotti that he was about 6 seconds away from losing everything last season. Had [...]
Lets be honest here. Ancelotti tried his best this season (like relying on post to get through to the semi finals in Dortmund clash in the Champions League and then playing Casillas in the Champions League final) but Real Madrid players defied him and won two hard earned trophies. Real Madrid beat 3 [.
Only 3 games left for Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid to fight it out for this season's La Liga title. Barcelona just drew their home game against Getafe so they can pretty much forget about their chances of winning anything this season. Here are 3 reasons why I think Real Madrid should also [.
Barcelona just drew their home game against Getafe a few moments ago 2-2 after Messi had given Barcelona the lead in the first half. That result ensures that Barcelona will not be able to win La Liga this time around as Atletico Madrid are in a purple patch that just does not seem like going [...]
Let me tell you something. Bayern Munich should thank their stars that Real Madrid did not humiliate them further in front of their own fans just 2 hours ago. Here is why: Bale could have scored when Neuer mistimed a clearance way outside of his penalty area. It was on Bale's left foot and he [...]
Why d id Real Madrid pay 100 million euros for Bale? The Copa Del Rey final should give you all the reasons why. Bale now has scored 20 goals in 39 games this season while Neymar has scored 15 goals in 40 appearances. Not to mention the fact that Bale has been going to a [...]
Di Maria and Bale have done for Real Madrid what Ronaldo and Benzema could not do last season and have won Real Madrid Copa Del Rey. Real Madrid teared through Barcelona with blistering pace and power. DI Maria scored the first goal on 11nth minute mark on the counter attack and used his pace to [...
It has taken Gareth Bale 125 minutes (on average of course) to score a goal in the Champions league and La Liga combined. Not really as good as Ronaldo's (or Messi's) ratio but compared with the Barcelona youngster Neymar, who scores every 200 minutes, I think is pretty good. Bale has not been really [.
For me it is more of a no brainer really, to give playing time to Isco even in important games. He could easily swap places with Di Maria or Bale (DI Maria in this case would go to his natural winger position with Isco in the middle) or Modric. This is last stretch of [...]
There is a thing about La Liga that has reached unbearable levels especially in Derby games. That thing is play acting. Both sides were heavily relying on diving and faking injuries throughout the first half. Second half was a bit more, in a way, dignified for both as players got tired and may be [..
Real Madrid scored 6 mammoth goals tonight (each took decent amount of technique) and probably could have scored 4 to 5 goals more if they had wanted to but the finest goal of the night was the last one which was scored by Huntelaar (former Real Madrid and AC Milan player) which gave Schalke [...]
This week's champions league action showcased exactly why Real Madrid sold Ozil and not Di Maria. Two basic or rather fundamental reasons: He just does not give a crap about whom to mark and whom to let go. Basically no defensive work at all. It's one thing if Messi or Ronaldo demand not doing any [.
Ronaldo has answered Lionel Messi's brace on the weekend with two goals of his own last night against Ateltico Madrid in the semifinal second leg of Copa Del Rey. Though both of those goals were penalties, the important point is that he continued his purple patch of scoring goals at will, just like Messi.
What a week it was for Real Madrid and for La Liga. For the first time in a long time we saw huge changes in the overall scenario of the league and of individual teams. Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid went head to head in Copa Del Rey semi final first leg and Real Madrid [...]
Probably the toughest game of this season apart from games against Barcelona and Atletico Madrid for Real Madrid. Athletic Bilbao have been unbeaten this season at their home ground (even Barcelona could not get a win there) and they will look to continue with that streak especially against rivals Real Madrid.
There were several reasons this weekend in La Liga for which I think nothing happened in La liga. Here are some of them: Ronaldo scored a single goal for Real Madrid against Granada. Such have been the standards Ronaldo has set for himself that when he doesn't score a hat trick in a game, [...]
Real Madrid will play the lowly Granada tomorrow. At Bernabeu, Real Madrid are expected to score a lot of goals and I have a feeling that they will as if Real Madrid win, it would be the first time in something like 2 years since Real Madrid topped the table. That to me [...]
Double whammy for Real Madrid fans as Barcelona along with Atletico Madrid have dropped 2 points each(as a icing on the cake, Messi did not score this weekend while Ronaldo did. That obviously can be countered as Messi scored twice last week whereas Ronaldo did not score at all). That has blasted the title race [.
Barcelona were trailing their away game 0-2 after 34 minutes and a shock defeat was on the cards. It looked like Real Madrid would be able to close the gap by the end of the weekend. But how things can change. A day earlier, Aletico Madrid was trailing 0-1 at home till the 30th minute [...]
Real Madrid are 6 points behind Barcelona and Atletico Madrid in the title race. Worse, Real Madrid have a losing head to head against both Barcelona and Atletico Madrid. Even worse is the fact that both Barcelona and Atletico Madrid have a better goal difference in the league. The only thing common between the [.
Real Madrid drew their Copa Del Ray match against CD Olimpic Xativa 0-0. It was the first of the two legs of the tie. Now all Real Madrid have to do is to beat a tier 3 team at Bernabeu in the return leg. First things first, Real Madrid looked ordinary without Ronaldo and Bale. [...]
Fifteen games have gone this season. Real Madrid sit on 37 points. Barcelona and Atletico Madrid (of all teams) are on 40 points each. 3 points is all Real Madrid need to get hold of that top spot. Maintain that spot till the end of the season and Real Madrid can celebrate, safely, their [...]
Real Madrid won their match against Valladolid 4-0. Bale scored 3 routine goals and made the other with a Beckham like lobbed pass to Benzema. That put Real Madrid at 37 points for the season, three behind Atletico Madrid and Barcelona (who both are on 40 points) after Barcelona lost their tough away match [.
Real Madrid have a really good, deep and talented squad. In fact, Real Madrid might have the most expensive substitute bench in the world where players with the quality of Bale, Di Maria, Illaramendi, Isco are seen sitting on the bench for a disturbingly large amount of time. Obviously the problem now for Real [.
