Things have not started well for Real Madrid this season, and yesterday they faced the defending Spanish champions of Atletico Madrid at home on Santiago Bernabeu stadium. On goals by Tiago and Arda Turan, Atletico Madrid gave Real Madrid their second defeat in three matches. Real Madrid, with all its new superstars is simply not working.
I managed to watch both matches yesterday on two screens in a bar in Monrovia. And both teams I was supporting came out as champions. For a week I will be Atletico Madrid fan, and yesterday they took the first step in what could be their greatest season ever. 1-1 against FC Barcelona was enough to give them the Spanish league.
I cannot believe that on such a great football day, the Barcelona-Atletico Madrid and the Arsenal-Hull FA Cup final take place at exactly the same time! I do not know what game to watch! I always watch the FA Cup final! It is always a fantastic match and I am excited about Arsenal's possibility of winning a title after so long!
The only match worth watching in the Spanish league has for ten years been the Real Madrid-Barcelona match. It has always been splendid, and tonight was no exception. I watched the dramatic match with a mixture of Spanish and international people in the bar called Sajj, in Sinkor, in Monrovia, in a lively atmosphere for what became a fantastic match.
