Real Madrid cruise at Liverpool while Arsenal rally for late victory Real Madrid cruised to a win at Liverpool, while Arsenal rallied for a late win and Atletico Madrid and Borussia Dortmund posted big shutouts in the Champions League on Wednesday. Cristiano Ronaldo's 70th Champions League goal and a double from Karim Benzema guided Real Madrid to a 3-0 win over Liverpool as the reigning champions notched a third straight victory in Group B. All the goals came in a devastating 18-minute spell in the first half at Anfield, with Ronaldo moving to within one goal of Raul's record tally in the competition by flicking in a superb opener in the 23rd minute. The goal punctured Liverpool's bright start and Real took control, with Benzema heading in the second in the 30th minute and then making it 3-0 from close range. Mario Balotelli's miserable start to his Liverpool career continued as he was substituted at halftime -- and swapped shirts with an opponent while walking to the dressing room.

The reigning Spanish champions have been criticised for their aggressive style of play, but Turan is not impressed and has made it clear that winning is all that matters for Diego Simeone's men. "Our football might not be pretty, but it’s winning football. Sometimes, the teams playing the nicest football don’t win games or titles," Arda told Fifa's official website. "Certainly there are times when we’d like to have more of the ball, but we don’t have Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi in our side, so we have to be a real team and work hard.

Cristiano Ronaldo to leave Real Madrid for Manchester City? Cristiano Ronaldo is reportedly set for a shock exit from Real Madrid at the end of season with Manchester City leading the race for his signature. According to The Express, the 29-year-old Portugal international is "determined" to leave the Spanish capital and is thought to be unhappy with the sale of Angel Di Maria to Manchester United and Xabi Alonso to Bayern Munich. Los Blancos are rumoured to be looking for a fee in the region of £60m for the 2014 FIFA Ballon D'or winner and the Premier League champions are said to be a viable destination. However, City may face competition from Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain with Les Parisiens willing to meet his wage demands and Real's price tag. The possibility of a return to Old Trafford remains, but manager Louis Van Gaal is reportedly mulling alternative options. Ronaldo scored a penalty in Real's 2-1 derby defeat at the hands of Atletico Madrid.

Depth aside, it’s hard to say why Real Madrid would want to sell Angel Di Maria. At least, that’s the take of teammates Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos, as well as Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone. On Wednesday, La Marca reported that both Ronaldo and Ramos have gone to Madrid president Florentino Perez to ask him to keep Di Maria. Problem is, Di Maria is likely to be sold over the coming week with Manchester United rumored to be coming to the table with a bid upwards of $166 million. That’s a transaction that the overwhelming majority of Galacticos, as well as the fans who gave him a standing ovation upon being substituted onto the pitch during last night’s Spanish Super Cup, don’t want to see happen. When cross-city rival manager Simeone was asked for his post-match thoughts on Di Maria, the Argentine manager sent the room of journalists into uproar. “He’s the Best Player they have,” Simeone deadpanned. But what about Ronaldo, Bale and Rodriguez? The room quaked. “[Di Maria] is ...

Just got home, congrats Atletico Madrid, you deserved it, congrats, Mesut Ozil for winning the FA cup, congrats Cristiano Ronaldo for winning the Golden Boot for the 2nd time, and congrats to me I got home in one piece, never gonna accept a ride from my friend again if I want to live!
FIERCE COMPETITION IN Spanish La Liga: (Premiership must take note) La Liga has gone leaps and bounds after what some considered a debacle last year. Two Spanish finalist in the Champions League alone speaks volumes. But the way the title is going to the wire with all three leaders and contenders Atletico Madrid, Barcelona (I do not know if dem own be Real or Athletico Barcelona) and Real Madrid all failed to win their matches today. Real got the short end of the stick by getting beaten by Celta Vigo 2-0. Celta who? I have never heard of them before (I no know book oooh). Well may be they have conceded the title and now want to conserve energy for the Champions League finals against Athletico. However, this might not be so since Cristiano Ronaldo, Angel Di Maria, Pepe, Raphael Varane and Karim Benzema are reported injured and Gareth Bale is supposed to be sick! Advantage Atletico? But Athletico only fared slightly better because they could only manage to force Malaga to a 1-1 draw which was sufficient to ...
Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed that he would love to score in the finals to extend his Champions League goal record but admitted that a win over Atletico Madrid would be the main priority.
SPORTS UPDATE WITH EMMAH ATAI: Manchester City will risk possible expulsion from next season’s Champions League if they fight the sanctions Uefa impose on them for being in breach of Financial Fair Play. City, who can take a giant stride towards the Premier League title by beating Aston Villa tonight at 10:45pm, learned yesterday that Paris Saint-Germain have been hit by far harsher sanctions than had been expected for their own breach. Zlatan Ibrahimovic will make his comeback from injury in tonight’s 11:00pm Ligue 1 home game against Stade Rennes that is expected to see Paris St Germain clinch their second consecutive French title. Welsh winger Gareth Bale will miss Real Madrid's crucial La Liga trip to relegation threatened Valladolid tonight at 11:00pm.

Real Madrid failed to take full advantage of slip-ups by leaders Atletico Madrid and Barcelona when they needed a Cristiano Ronaldo volley in stoppage time to rescue a 2-2 home draw with Valencia on Sunday.
Real Madrid ROAR POWERFULLY INTO FINAL Real Madrid blew Bayern Munich away to reach the UEFA Champions League final with a 4-0 second leg victory which secured a 5-0 aggregate success. Sergio Ramos took advantage of some woeful marking to head home twice from set pieces in the opening 20 minutes before Cristiano Ronaldo put the finishing touch to a devastating counter-attack in the 34th minute in a blistering opening half from the Spanish giants. Ronaldo added a fourth with a late free-kick and the only downside for Carlo Ancelotti's side, who will face either city rivals Atletico Madrid or Chelsea and former boss Jose Mourinho in the Lisbon final next month, was the needless booking for midfielder Xabi Alonso which rules him out of the showpiece. Pep Guardiola's reigning European champions had dominated possession in the first leg at Santiago Bernabeu last week, only to leave Spain with a 1-0 deficit after Karim Benzema struck. Any hopes they had of working their way back into the tie were obliterated by ...
Real thrash Bayern as Ronaldo makes history (PA) Tuesday 29 April 2014 Share Real Madrid moved a step closer to ruling Europe for a tenth time as they blew away defending champions Bayern Munich 4-0 to complete a 5-0 aggregate victory in a record-breaking semi-final. Holding a 1-0 lead from the first leg, a first-half brace from Sergio Ramos and two goals from Cristiano Ronaldo - which took his season's UEFA Champions League tally to a record 16 - handed Los Merengues a comfortable success that takes them to the Estadio da Luz to face either Chelsea or Atletico Madrid on 24 May. The only negative for Real on a night when they took their goal tally in this season's Champions League to 37 - another record - was a booking for Xabi Alonso that rules the midfielder out of the decider. Both teams made just one change from the first leg with Gareth Bale replacing Isco for Real and Thomas Muller coming in for Rafinha for Bayern. There was a minute's silence before proceedings began in honour of former Barcelona . ...
Ronaldo double eases Madrid past Osasuna 26 April 2014, 22:27 Real Madrid's rampant Cristiano Ronaldo scored at the start of each half to set up a 4-0 victory olowly Osasuna and put the pressure back on La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid on Saturday. Sergio Ramos and Daniel Carvajal also netted for Real who are second on 82 points, three behind Atletico before their trip to Valencia on Sunday with both teams having played 34 games. Barcelona, mourning the death of former coach Tito Vilanova on Friday, are now in third place with 81 points from 34 matches and travel to Villarreal on Sunday. Real did not risk Gareth Bale or Karim Benzema against Osasuna ahead of their Champions League semifinal second leg at Bayern Munich on Tuesday in which they hold a 1-0 advantage. But there was no holding Ronaldo, who only returned from injury in Wednesday's first leg against Bayern at the Bernabeu having been out since early April, as he cut in from the left wing and fired into the corner of the net after six minutes. The ...
UEFA Champions League SEMI-FINAL: BATTLE OF THE GIANTS AS Real Madrid TAKES ON Bayern Munich! Real Madrid vs Bayern Munich Real Madrid will be aiming to put things right tonight as they go into battle with defending Champions Bayern Munich at the Santiago Bernabeu. These two sides are unarguably the two best teams in the world right now. They both boast of incredicble records. But while Bayern Munich has won the Bundesliga title, Real Madrid are currently 6 points adrift leaders Atletico Madrid in the La Liga. While Real Madrid has won the UCL 9 times, with the last been 2012, Bayern Munich has won it 5 times. And as most of us already know, they are the defending Champions. Cristiano Ronaldo who has missed Real's last 4 games through a hamstring injury and Gareth Bale who had flu and couldn't train on Monday are both in doubt for this clash, but both players are very certain to pass the fitness test. They are both in the squad. Carlo Ancelotti will be desperate to have them ready for the battle. The duo ...
Champions League Team News: -Eden Hazard was unable to train with Chelsea first team today and a major doubt for tomorrow's match against Atletico Madrid. -Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois to play against Chelsea, from which he is loaned. -Cristiano Ronaldo able to train normally with Real Madrid, but not Bale, sick. - Manuel Neuer likely to play with Bayern Munich.
The 26-year-old has scored 25 league goals this season but there are indications that all is not well. He has struggled for the best part of a year with various knocks and niggles. His output on the field has noticeably decreased. Barca is enduring a torrid season and Messi cannot be absolved from blame. He endured derision for failing to cover the ground in the Barca's Champions League loss to Atletico Madrid. Radomir Antic, the former Barca coach, suggested that Messi deliberately failed to keep up as a means of punishment to Tata Martino who fielded him out of position. Messi remains behind only Cristiano Ronaldo as the Best Player in the world but there are reasons for Barca to contemplate selling.

Fair play to the Barcelona fans who applauded Atletico Madrid last night Cristiano Ronaldo out for 15 days, will miss Copa Del Rey final & 1st leg of CL semi: on Barcelona:
THREE Reasons Why Chelsea WILL Win The Champions League The semi-finalists for the Champions League are now confirmed - Chelsea will go up against one of Atletico Madrid, Bayern Munich or Real Madrid. The draw is on Friday, but whoever they get I think Chelsea will win the tournament. Here are three reasons why. 1) Jose Mourinho The Portuguese coach has vast experience across European football and knows exactly what is needed to win the competition. Mourinho won the Champions League against all odds whilst in charge of Porto, and then picked up the trophy when at Inter Milan. If there is one coach who you'd want in charge going into the Champions League semi-final it would be him. 2) Solid defence John Terry and Gary Cahill are one of the best central pairings I have seen this season. They are half of the Premier League's tightest defence and have proved to be a tough nut to crack in Europe. Atletico Madrid have Diego Costa, Real Madrid have Cristiano Ronaldo and Bayern Munich have a host of top-class att ...
Madrid keep on Atletico, Barça's tails Gareth Bale deputised ably for the injured Cristiano Ronaldo with a wonder strike from 35 yards as Real Madrid kept up the pressure on Atletico Madrid and Barcelona with a 4-0 win away to Real Sociedad. Atletico stay top, three points clear of third-placed Real, as they squeezed out a tense 1-0 win over Villarreal, whilst Barça remain in second after overcoming Real Betis 3-1 thanks to two goals from Lionel Messi. Real were leading 1-0 thanks to Asier Illarramendi's opener when Bale pounced on an error from Sociedad keeper Claudio Bravo to register his 18th goal of the season with a sweet left-footed striker 25 minutes from time before Pepe and Alvaro Morata rounded off the scoring. Without FIFA Ballon d'Or holder Ronaldo due to a knee problem, Madrid took their time to get going in San Sebastian and could have been behind when Antoine Griezmann's header flashed just over the bar midway through the first-half. However, Carlo Ancelotti's men went in front the first ...
Cristiano Ronaldo being mugged off by Atletico Madrid's ball boy!
Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos both felt that the performance of referee Undiano Mallenco at the Santiago Bernabeu was evidence of a conspiracy against Los Blancos Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo has advised Real Madrid's players to stop moaning about the officiating in Sunday's Clasico loss to Barcelona, claiming that they are doing nothing other than wasting their own time and energy. Despite winning and converting a penalty given for a Dani Alves foul that took place outside the area, Cristiano Ronaldo launched a scathing attack on Undiano Mallenco after the game, claiming that the referee, who awarded the Blaugrana two spot-kicks, was "not at the required level". The Portuguese also hinted at a conspiracy against Madrid, a claim that was supported by team-mate Sergio Ramos, who declared the official's decisions - which included his dismissal for a professional foul - were "pre-meditated". However, Cerezo, whose side now top the Liga table on account of their superior head-to-head record a ...
Sevilla 2-1 Real Madrid 26 March 2014 23:16 Real Madrid suffered their second La Liga loss of the week and lost ground in the title race with a 2-1 defeat at fifth-placed Sevilla. Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring with a deflected free kick for Real, who were beaten by Barcelona on Sunday. Madrid missed a host of chances, which included Ronaldo hitting the post before the break. Carlos Bacca equalised and superb play from Ivan Rakitic created Bacca's second. The visitors still had their chances to take at least a point, with Ronaldo and Gareth Bale spurning chances. The defeat, coupled with wins for Atletico Madrid and Barcelona, means Carlo Ancelotti's side have dropped to third in La Liga. They are three points behind leaders Atletico, who defeated Granada 1-0, and two below Barcelona, who beat Celta Vigo 3-0, with eight games to play. It is the first time Real have lost two successive league matches since May 2009.
All the Real Madrid and Christiano Ronaldo fans, don't miss the chance, let's do lungi dance and Let's have a look how El Clasico players are rated and where your Ronaldo stands. Real Madrid v Barcelona: El Clasico player ratings By Andy West Spanish football writer El Clasico served up a football feast with Lionel Messi scoring a hat-trick in Barcelona's thrilling 4-3 win over Real Madrid. As is often the case when the Spanish giants meet, the game was littered with controversy as Sergio Ramos was sent off and the three penalties awarded were all disputed. But Messi's precision from two of the spot-kicks won the game, meaning he outshone Cristiano Ronaldo, as Barcelona closed to within a point of title rivals Real and Atletico Madrid. Here's how Spanish football writer Andy West rated the players: Real Madrid Diego Lopez (goalkeeper) - 6 Despite conceding four goals, he was in the paradoxical situation of having relatively little to do and certainly stood no chance with any of Barcelona's strikes. Even s ...
Mar 17, 2014 12:22:00 PM The Portugal international and the Premier League star both enjoyed a fruitful weekend, while Lionel Messi got his name in the mix with a history making hat-trick Real Madrid attacker Cristiano Ronaldo and Liverpool's Luis Suarez continue to lead the way in the race for the European Golden Shoe, but Lionel Messi 's fine form for Barcelona in recent weeks has seen last year's winner storm into the top 10. Ronaldo netted once at the weekend to help Madrid to a vital 1-0 win over Malaga, while Suarez also took his tally to 25 following his goal in Liverpool's victory against Manchester United. Meanwhile, third-placed Diego Costa got the winner in Atletico Madrid's win over Espanyol to keep up his fine goalscoring run as well. PSG striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Red Bull Salzburg hitman Jonatan Soriano both netted a double, but the winner of the week was Messi following his hat-trick in Barca's 7-0 win over Osasuna. Finally, Bayern Munich's Mario Mandzukic and Barcelona forward Alexis ...
Real looking to snuff out Barca bid 20 Mar 2014 14:05:23 The 168th La Liga "Clasico" between in-form Real Madrid and an erratic Barcelona could see the table-toppers take a big step towards winning the title and sound the death knell for the champions bid for a fifth triumph in six years. Leaders Real host their arch rivals at the Bernabeu on Sunday (2000 GMT) in one of soccer's most emotive occasions, featuring a clash of the world's two richest clubs, the two Best Players - Real's Cristiano Ronaldo and Barca's Lionel Messi - and watched by hundreds of millions around the world.

Liga BBVA 2013/2014 Bale: We've won nothing yet (PA) Monday 10 March 2014 Share Gareth Bale insists treble-chasing Real Madrid are not getting carried away despite taking a firm grip on the Spanish La Liga title race over the weekend. With Barcelona surprisingly losing to lowly Real Valladolid on Saturday, Real had a chance to put a four-point buffer between themselves and the reigning champions - as well as moving three points clear of Atletico Madrid - with a victory over Levante. And Carlo Ancelotti's star-studded side did just that as strikes from Cristiano Ronaldo and Marcelo, plus a late Nikos Karabelas own goal, earned them a convincing 3-0 victory at the Bernabeu. That was Real's 24th win in 29 games in all competitions since their last defeat, which came at the Nou Camp in October, and with Barca and Atletico both stumbling in recent weeks, they are looking good to win only their second La Liga crown in six years. However, with 11 league games still to go, Bale points out there is still plenty of ...
Liga BBVA 2013/2014 Real regain lead, Sevilla sink Almeria (PA) Sunday 9 March 2014 Real Madrid are again three points clear at the top of the Spanish La Liga after a 3-0 win over Levante on Sunday. Carlo Ancelotti's men watched on Saturday as Atletico Madrid won at Celta Vigo to return to level points with them, before responding with a three-goal win. Cristiano Ronaldo got them going before the break, with Marcelo and an own goal from Nikos rounding things off after the break. The win also means they are four points clear of defending champions Barcelona and surely have to be considered the favourite of the three sides chasing the title. Sevilla ensured their preparation for next week's UEFA Europa League derby clash with Real Betis was almost perfect with a 3-1 away win over Almeria. Carlos Bacca, Daniel Carrico and Kevin Gameiro all scored for Sevilla with Aleix Vidal claiming a late consolation for the home side as the result kept the pressure on sixth-placed Real Sociedad, who are two points clear o ...

No player in the top three added to his tally at the weekend, but there were plenty of goals lower down the top 10 Liverpool striker Luis Suarez missed the chance to extend his lead over Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo in the European Golden Shoe standings by failing to find the net in his side's 5-1 Premier League win over Arsenal. Ronaldo didn't feature in Los Blancos' 4-2 victory over Villarreal due to suspension, but Suarez did not take advantage of the Portugal star's absence. Meanwhile, third-placed Diego Costa did not manage to add to his tally either, as Atletico Madrid were surprisingly beaten 2-0 by Almeria. Heerenveen striker Alfred Finnbogason continued his fine form, though, as he converted a spot kick in his side's 3-1 Eredivisie win over regional rivals Groningen. Elsewhere, Suarez's Liverpool team-mate Daniel Sturridge netted once as the Reds thrashed Arsenal and the England international has now scored 15 league goals in 2013-14. Finally, Hertha's Adrian Ramos, Barcelona attacker Alexi ...
Ronaldo banned. Real Madrid will have to do without Ballon d'Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo when they welcome fifth-placed Villarreal to the Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday as the Portuguese misses out through suspension. Ronaldo was sent off in his side's 1-1 draw away to Athletic Bilbao last weekend and has provisionally been banned for three La Liga games, although the suspension could be reduced as Real have announced their intention to appeal. Those two dropped points against Athletic allowed Atletico Madrid to open up a three-point lead over both Real and Barcelona at the top the table. However, Real were handed a timely confidence boost as they beat Atletico 3-0 on Wednesday in the first leg of their Copa Del Rey semifinal to exact revenge for defeat to Los Rojiblancos in last year's final. Croatian Luka Modric was once again a shining light in the Real midfield in midweek and he believes the rest of his teammates will need to step up against Villarreal to compensate for the loss of Ronaldo. "It is not ...

Atletico Madrid star Diego Costa says he would give the Ballon d'Or to Cristiano Ronaldo
Dec 23, 2013 11:14:00 PM The Colombia international has described the pair as 'the two most important players in the world' but feels that the Portuguese ace has the edge Monaco striker Radamel Falcao believes that Real Madrid icon Cristiano Ronaldo is a better player than Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi. The Colombia international is a huge admirer of both players, having played alongside them in La Liga for two years before leaving Atletico Madrid for Monaco during the summer. However, as far as Falcao is concerned, the Portugal international is the slightly superior talent. "Messi and Cristiano are the two most important players in the world today but, for me, Ronaldo is the best," the 27-year-old striker told El Tiempo. Falcao only returned to the Monaco line-up just before the winter break after a spell on the sidelines with an injury that some reports suggested was merely a convenient way of covering up an alleged falling-out with coach Claudio Ranieri. However, the former Porto forward insists tha ...

Cristiano Ronaldo's deflected shot in the fourth minute of stoppage time snatched a dramatic 3-2 La Liga victory for a below-par Real Madrid at lowly Levante on Saturday. Real are flying in Europe after resounding Champions League victories over Galatasaray and FC Copenhagen but turned in another disappointing domestic performance following last weekend's 1-0 defeat at home to Atletico Madrid. They twice had to come from behind at Levante's Ciutat de Valencia stadium before Ronaldo rifled a shot from the corner of the area and it glanced off a defender before ricocheting into the net off a post. It was desperately *** a plucky Levante side and their fans but moved Real back above Villarreal into third place, within two points of champions Barcelona and Atletico. Barca and Atletico have both won all seven matches and can restore their five-point advantage over Real with respective victories against Real Valladolid later on Saturday and against Celta Vigo on Sunday.

La Liga outfit Sevilla are reportedly willing to negotiate with Liverpool over the transfer of Ivan Rakitic, it has emerged. The Spanish side had a poor season this year, finishing 9th in La Liga, and are expecting to face the departures of some key players, having already sold winger Jesus Navas to Manchester City for £14.9million. They could also receive a number of offers for top scorer Alvaro Negredo, who is a target for Atletico Madrid. Rakitic is another of Sevilla’s more impressive players, and has found himself on Liverpool’s radar after scoring 8 goals and providing 10 assists this season.

Brendan Rodgers was reportedly ready to open with a £12million bid for the Croatian, who has been compared with Luka Modric, and although Sevilla are willing to sell, they may hold out for closer to £16milli ...
Did Radamel Falcao Make the Right Move Signing with AS Monaco? 12 days ago by Christian Tamayo 1 2 1 0 Share 5 Photo by- TheSportReview (Flickr) Newly-promoted Ligue 1 side Monaco has made a huge splash in the transfer window, signing arguably the most coveted forward available in Radamel Falcao. The deal is reported to earn him $90 million US over a five-year span. Falcao, 27, has scored 52 goals in La Liga during his time at Atletico Madrid, and has been mentioned in the same breath as Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo for his exploits. There have been plenty of doubts about Falcao possibly joining Monaco. Detractors are saying it’s simply a move for financial reasons. It’s also been said that a move to Monaco would threaten his legacy, as he is not choosing the destination that would provide him with the greatest competition and exposure.

Football - Ligue 1 Paper Round: Monaco plan world record Ronaldo bid Monaco have already made some big splashes in the transfer market this summer but a monster move for Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo could top the lot. Radamel Falcao, from Atletico Madrid, and Porto duo James Rodriguez and Joao Moutinho have already been signed by the Ligue 1 side for a combined £110m and, according to the Independent, the mega-rich principality have now begun a flirtation with Portuguese superstar Ronaldo. The figures the paper quotes are simply staggering – they say Monaco would be willing to pay a world record transfer fee of £85m for Ronaldo and offer him a mind-boggling wage of €20m-a-year (£17m) which is made all the more attractive for the player due to Monaco's tax haven status. Ronaldo has been with Real Madrid for four seasons after his £80m move from Manchester United and has scored 199 goals in just 201 games at the Bernabeu. Unsurprisingly Real are hoping to tie him to a new deal, but Ronaldo's peop ...

Copa Del Rey Final: Mourinho and Ronaldo Sent Off as Miranda Secures an Extra Time Winner. Real Madrid were without Cristiano Ronaldo and Jose Mourinho as Atletico Madrid defeated their regional rivals for the first time in 14 years to claim the Copa Del Rey at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, after extra time. Ronaldo, after lifting to connect with a header from a Mesut Ozil’s corner, gave the Los Blancos the lead in the 14th minute, but Diego Costa leveled 10 minutes before half time for Atletico. However, Miranda’a header in the 99th minute of extra time won it for Atletico and ended what is predictably Mourinho’s final season at the Bernabeu, trophyless. Ronaldo Put Real It was a match that every effort from Real proved abortive as the Los Blancos hit the woodwork three times; two of them in the heated second half, while Juanfran blocked a shot from Ozil on the line to force extra time. Atletico goaltender Thibaut Courtois made two superb saves in the extra time to keep his side in front. With Mou ...
Ronaldo and Mourinho see red as Atletico stun Real Madrid to win Copa Reuters Saturday, May 18, 2013 - 3:10 AM Football - Liga Copa Del Rey final, Bernabeu - Real Madrid 1 (Ronaldo 14) Atletico Madrid 2 (Costa 35, Miranda 99) A.E.T. Joao Miranda thumped home an extra-time winner as Atletico Madrid secured a 2-1 win over Real Madrid to claim Copa Del Rey glory in a fiery final that saw both Jose Mourinho and Cristiano Ronaldo sent off. The Brazilian defender headed in a 99th-minute cross to clinch a first victory over Los Blancos since 1999 and the 10th domestic cup success in their history. Mourinho's side had looked on course to maintain their hoodoo over their neighbours when Ronaldo powered home a 14th-minute corner. However, Diego Costa restored parity just before half time when he fired home a 20-yard shot following a fine turn and pass from Radamel Falcao. Real dominated but contrived to hit the woodwork on no fewer than three occasions with Mesut Ozil, Karim Benzema and Ronaldo going close to winni ...

Another report saying Man United are interested £65 million for Cristiano Ronaldo. Thoughts?
Atletico Madrid set up a Copa Del Rey final with city rivals Real after Diego Costa and Radamel Falcao scored in a 2-2 second leg draw at Sevilla, to progress 4-3 on aggregate. Costa, who had scored both Atletico goals from the penalty spot in the first leg, put the visitors in charge after carving an opening for himself in the sixth minute and firing low into the far corner. His seventh goal in the Cup made him the competition's leading scorer this season, one ahead of Real's Cristiano Ronaldo and Sevilla striker Alvaro Negredo. The Brazilian striker then broke away down the left and crossed low for Colombia's Falcao, who darted in front of his marker to score in the 29th. Roared on by a noisy home crowd, Sevilla's most dangerous player Jesus Navas breathed life back in to the tie with a curling shot that went in off the far post just before the break. Sevilla, who beat Atletico 2-0 in the 2010 Copa final, pressed hard in the second half but did not find a way past Thibaut Courtois again until Ivan Rakit ...
The United keeper was described by Alex Ferguson on the eve of this classic encounter as like a little kid who kept wobbling and falling over before learning to walk. It was an honest assessment of the difficulties the Spanish keeper has had since arriving at Old Trafford for £17.8million in June 2011. But last night in the Bernabeu, De Gea, 22, took a giant stride forward in his United career. Back in his home city where he made his name at Atletico Madrid, De Gea was immense as he made a series of superb saves. In doing so, he helped give United a slender advantage in this last-16 Champions League tie. They have a vital away goal in the bag courtesy of Danny Welbeck’s 20th-minute header. But it would be a brave man who would bet against Real scoring at Old Trafford in just under three weeks’ time. Their equaliser came on the half-hour from, who else, but old-boy Cristiano Ronaldo with a header of his own. Robin Van Persie, who did not have the best of nights, will be cursing that he did not get a s ...
REAL WIN, ATLETICO CLOSE GAP Real Madrid produced an emphatic display to crush Valencia, while Atletico Madrid closed the gap on Barcelona. Real were supposed to be a team in disarray under Jose Mourinho but there were no signs of that as Valencia were humbled 5-0 in the Mestalla on Sunday night. All five goals came in a sensational first half for the visitors as Gonzalo Higuain opened the scoring before Cristiano Ronaldo and Angel Di Maria helped themselves to two goals each. But Atletico also claimed three points to ensure Real remain seven points adrift of their city rivals in third place. Diego Simeone's side ran out comfortable 2-0 winners over Levante to stretch their unbeaten record at the Vicente Calderon stadium to a remarkable 18 games and move within eight points of Barcelona. Perhaps the only surprise was that Radamel Falcao was not on the scoresheet as goals from Adrian Lopez and Koke secured the victory for the home side. It wasn't all good news for Atletico though as their Colombian talisma ...
Lionel Messi celebrated his fourth successive Ballon d'Or award by once again inspiring Barcelona to a victory 3-1 at Malaga. Messi won his record-breaking FIFA honour on Monday, taking the honour ahead of Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo, and continued his magnificent scoring run by breaking the deadlock tonight in the 27th minute. Tomas: Record Barca become best ever winter champions The Argentinian then teed up Cesc Fabregas to put Barcelona two goals to the good after the interval before substitute Thiago made the game safe late on - despite Diego Buonanotte grabbing a consolation in the final minute. It was ultimately a comfortable evening for the Primera Division leaders, who are 11 points clear of closest challengers Atletico Madrid. Malaga upset Real Madrid last month at La Rosaleda and although they were started well tonight, they never recovered from Messi's opener. The 25-year-old had the first opportunity of the match when Weligton failed to cut out Andres Iniesta's pass and a goal appeared ine ...
Jose Mourinho was under more pressure on Saturday when his misfiring Real Madrid side were held to a 0-0 draw at rock-bottom Osasuna, a result which left the champions 15 points behind leaders Barcelona. Madrid, devoid of any creativity, missed the suspended Cristiano Ronaldo, who had scored five of his side's eight goals in the last two games, and their desperate state was highlighted when substitute Kaka was sent-off in the second half. Real Madrid are on 37 points in third place, four behind Atletico Madrid and they could trail Barcelona by 18 points on Sunday if the runaway leaders defeat fifth-place Malaga. "I liked my team's attitude, Raul Albiol and Fabio Coentrao have come in and played well and the others have done a job. It's not easy to create here, we did enough to score but we didn't make many chances," said Mourinho. The Portuguese coach was questioned about captain Iker Casillas, who he recently controversially dropped, but refused to say if he would be in the team on Tuesday against Valenc ...
Ronaldo rescues Real, Barca unstoppable Goalkeeper Iker Casillas came off the bench for 10-man Real Madrid who needed a secondhalf double from Cristiano Ronaldo to beat Real Sociedad 4-3 while leaders Barcelona cruised to a 4-0 win over Espanyol. Barcelona, whose goals all came in the first-half against their city neighbours, remain 16 points clear of their bitter rivals and eleven ahead of second-place Atletico Madrid who drew 1-1 with Mallorca. Madrid captain Casillas was left out for the second consecutive game but was called upon after just five minutes following a penalty conceded by his replacement Adan Garrido who was red carded. Xabi Prieto, who was to grab a hat-trick, scored from the spot-kick to equalise after Karim Benzema had put Madrid ahead in the second minute with Sami Khedira then restoring the lead for Jose Mourinho's side after 35 minutes. Prieto struck again before halftime before Ronaldo came to the rescue with a brace afterthe restart. Prieto hit his third with 14 minutes to go but ...

Real Madrid 4-1 Ajax: Mourinho’s second string win comfortably Real Madrid welcomed Ajax to the Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday having already qualified for the knockout stages of the Champions League and they ended the group stages with a comfortable 4-1 victory. Frank de Boer’s young Dutch side have played some nice football in Europe this season but they came to the Bernabeu knowing the result between Dortmund and Man City would decide their European football fate. Madrid who made several changes to the side that beat Atletico Madrid on Saturday took the lead when Cristiano Ronaldo met Karim Benzema’s through ball and thumped his effort past Kenneth Vermeer. Just over 10 minutes later and Jose Callejon would double the lead after a neat ball from Luka Modric and Mourinho’s men went into the break holding a comfortable lead. Then, just three minutes after the break Madrid added a third through Kaka who drove to the edge of the penalty area before curling an effort into the top corner. Ajax seemed s ...
Real Madrid 2-0 Atletico Madrid: History remains the same as Ronaldo sinks Atletico Goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Mesut Ozil saw Real Madrid win the Madrid derby over rivals Atletico Madrid at Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday night. Atletico Madrid travelled across town to the Bernabeu in search of a first derby win in over 13 years but a scrappy game saw Real Madrid take all three points. Cristiano Ronaldo has been out of form recently but it was the Portuguese international who broke the deadlock to send the home fans into raptures following a sublime free-kick. The game continued following Ronaldo’s impressive strike but if truth be told it was relatively poor stuff as too many fouls saw the game stopped and started too often. Radamel Falcao was struggling to get himself into the game and his luck didn’t change after the interval as Real Madrid continued to be on top. Mesut Ozil and Ronaldo were linking well and the former finished off a lovely move to put the game out of reach for Diego Simeone’ ...
Atletico Madrid player, Diego Godin has said that he thinks, Radamel Falcao & Lionel Messi are "a step ahead" of Cristiano Ronaldo!
Lionel Messi has been voted the best footballer in the world and Barcelona the best team in the world– for a week at least. The Associated Press released the inaugural AP Global Soccer 10 football rankings yesterday, with a panel of 18 football writers from around the world picking their top ten players and top ten teams. AP then combines the results, with the first choice of each journalist receiving ten points, and the last choice receiving one point. That means any one individual or team could score a maximum of 180 points, and Messi wasn’t a million miles away with his score of 140 points for the week ending October 29th. His total was helped by a brace in the5-0 win over Rayo Vallecano on Saturday night, with the second strike his 300th career goal for the Blaugrana. Cristiano Ronaldo came second on the list with 111 points, whilst Atletico Madrid star Radamel Falcao completed a La Liga sweep of the topthree places on 79. Robin Van Persie, who scored in Manchester United’s 3-2 win over Chelsea, ...

PSG target Ronaldo and Mourinho. »»Big-spending French side Paris Saint-Germain are ready to shell out €100 million for Real Madrid ace Cristiano Ronaldo and bring manager Jose Mourinho at the same time, Italy's Gazzetta dello Sport said on Wednesday. The sports daily claimed the two clubs have already opened negotiations on the joint move, with Ronaldo and Mourinho's agent Jorge Mendes in talks with the player, Real president Florentino Perez and PSG's Qatari owner Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani. The French giants are apparently prepared to break the bank to meet Ronaldo's wage demand of €18 million a year, topping the €14 million he picks up at Real and eclipsing the €14.5 million they are already paying star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic. If Ronaldo agreed the move, Mourinho would follow, Gazzetta claimed. The newspaper said Mendes was the key to the deal as he also represents Atletico Madrid's prolific Colombian striker Radamel Falcao, who could prove the ideal replacement for Ronaldo at Real with a ...

Old Trafford youngster on Bernabeu radar. Real Madrid are reportedly considering a move to sign ManUnited keeper David De Gea according to CalcioMercato . The Spanish giants seemingly see the young Old Trafford custodian as an ideal long termreplacement for Iker Casillas and indeed a player of sufficient quality to keep the Bernabeu captain on his toes. Man United spent £17m to bring the 21 year old keeper from Atletico Madrid just over ayear ago but thus far this term Sir Alex Ferguson has preferred Dane Anders Lindegaard over the Spaniard, handing De Gea three Premier League starts from the opening seven matches of the campaign. A move back to La Liga may well tempt the young goalkeeper and Real Madrid areclearly adept at luring players from Man United to the Spanishcapital, having signed the likes of David Beckham, Ruud Van Nistelrooy and Cristiano Ronaldo in the recent past. De Gea has already made a few notable errors as United keeperand Ferguson may well feel that Lindegaard is the more reliable ke ...

Messi and Ronaldo back as La Liga begins The Spanish league season kicks-off this weekend with Barcelona star Lionel Messi insisting it is not just a battle between himself and Cristiano Ronaldo. "With Cristiano I have absolutely no problem. All that is said about us is to do with the press who want us to have our own personal battle but I have never competed with him or fought him," said the 25 year-old current holder of the FIFA Ballon d'Or. "I just try to do my job in the best way possible to win trophies for my national team and Barcelona", he continued after scoring in Argentina's 3-1 win over Germany on Wednesday night. The two players were neck-and-neck in the goalscoring charts last season, with the Argentinian hitting 50 in the league compared to Ronaldo's 46, with an incredible 73 in all competitions for Messi and 60 for the Madrid star. Madrid finished the season nine points clear of a Barca side that still managed to lift 4 titles in what was to be Pep Guardiola's last season of a hugely succe ...

Spanish striker Fernando Torres won the GoldenBoot award for top scorer at Euro 2012 edging out Germany’s Mario Gomez UEFA announced on Monday.
