Cristiano Ronaldo's opener for Real Madrid in the 4-0 defeat of Granada on Saturday saw him break Isidro Langara's 79-year-old record for the most goals scored in the first 10 La Liga games of the season. Langara set the record in 1935-36 when playing for Real Oviedo after scoring 16 goals in his opening 10 matches of the campaign. Ronaldo, however, notched his 17th of the season as Madrid secured three points to move top of La Liga, while he reached the target in just nine games, having missed the 4-2 defeat against Real Sociedad in August through injury. The Portugal captain has not scored as many goals at this stage in La Liga during his last five campaigns at Madrid, having previously managed a best of 11 in 2010-11 and 2012-13. Ronaldo's strike against Granada was teed up by teammate Karim Benzema, before the former Manchester United man returned the favour, and that turned out to be the 39th and 40th assists between the pair since they started playing together in 2009. It was the 15th assist that Ro ...

Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo, right, duels for the ball with Atletico de Madrid's Juan Fran during a Spanish La Liga soccer match at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium in Madrid, Spain, Sunday, Sept 14 2014 . (AP) The die is being cast. The backroom bargaining may have even begun. However, the most potent hope Manchester United fans have of Cristiano Ronaldo returning to Old Trafford is the fact that Real Madrid have lost. Again. Not just any loss this, but a 2-1 loss to Atletico Madrid, which now leaves them six points behind league leaders Barcelona. Real having lost two of their opening three games of the season and all murmurs about Ronaldo not being happy about the changes at Real are getting louder. The spine of the Real team that allowed CR7 to flourish these past years is gone. Angel Di Maria? Gone. Sami Khedira? Gone. Xabi Alonso? Gone. Mesut Ozil? Gone. Ronaldo made it publicly known that he was not happy to lose some of those players, especially Di Maria. Ronaldo did score his 13th goal against A ...
Football Titbits Manchester United will get Angel Di Maria to try to convince close friend Cristiano Ronaldo to leave Real Madrid and return to Old Trafford next summer. Arsenal and Chelsea are set to battle for the signature of Valencia striker Paco Alcacer when the transfer window reopens in January. German giants Bayern Munich are lining up a £32m bid for Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil. Arsenal right-back Mathieu Debuchy could be out for up to three months after sustaining an ankle injury in Saturday's 2-2 draw with Manchester City. And finally.. QPR had to make a 194-mile coach trip back to London after their defeat at Manchester United because they couldn't book out a train carriage - and Harry Redknapp cheekily blamed United supporters travelling back to the capital. * .

Roma want to reunite Glen Johnson with former England team-mate Ashley Cole and are preparing to launch a £2m bid for the Liverpool full-back. James Milner could leave Manchester City in January, so the Citizens are lining up Southampton starlet James Ward-Prowse as a possible replacement. Failing that, Saints team-mate Jay Rodriguez.

Diego Maradona believes Germany's hopes for success in their World Cup opener against Portugal could depend largely on the performance of Mesut Ozil. The Arsenal midfielder suffered a dip in form during the latter stages of the 2013-14 season and has seen his place in Joachim Low's star-studded line-up come under pressure as a result, with former World Cup winner Lothar Matthaus among those to voice his concern over the 25-year-old's spot in the team.

quarterfinalists in South Africa four years ago, Ghana will again grab the headlines in Brazil if they can wrestle a Group G qualifying spot from European heavyweights Germany or Portugal. Ghana, cruelly eliminated in 2010 by Uruguay in a shootout after Luis Suarez's infamous goalline handball and a subsequent missed penalty, are the form side from Africa but it is hard to look beyond the star-studded squads of Germany and Portugal as the ones to progress. Germany begin as favourites to top the group thanks to a side whose defensive backbone is complimented by one of the most dynamic attacking forces in the tournament, with the likes of Mario Goetze, Thomas Mueller, Mesut Ozil and Toni Kroos orchestrating matches. Germany also possess the top scorers from the previous two World Cups in Mueller and strikerMiroslav Klose, who is two goals away from becoming the World Cup's all-time top scorer. They kickoff their campaign against Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal in Salvador on June 16, having won the last three ...

Chelsea tackle Toffees, Gunners aim high (AFP) Friday 21 February 2014 Jose Mourinho will need another inspired display from in-form Eden Hazard as Chelsea try to cement their position on top of the Premier League against Everton on Saturday. Mourinho's side have reached the summit despite just 11 league goals this season from their three main strikers, Fernando Torres, Demba Ba and Samuel Eto'o, but fortunately for the Blues their Belgium midfielder Eden Hazard has been in sublime form. Hazard has netted 12 times in 26 league appearances, while also setting up countless chances for his team-mates, and boss Mourinho recently lauded the 23-year-old as Europe's most talented young player. Chelsea defender David Luiz has also been impressed by Hazard's rise since moving to the Bridge from French club Lille in 2012 and the Brazilian is confident his team-mate can one day surpass Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo as the best in the world. "He can be one day the Best Player in the world," Luiz said. "I'm so ha ...
Mesut Ozil ranks third in the world in shirt sales so far for the 2013/14 season. Since arriving from Real Madrid in an astonishing summer move, Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil’s name and number have been printed more times than any other Premier League player. The £42.4m that Arsenal spent on the German international sent shockwaves through Europe and beyond as Arsenal fans flocked to the club’s shops to buy the new Arsenal kit adorning the name ‘Ozil’ with number 11.

The number of top-class players who have come to the Premier League in their prime is very few: Jurgen Klinsmann, Dennis Bergkamp, Andriy Shevchenko, Michael Ballack, Mesut Ozil and possibly Yaya Toure. The vast majority of others have either come before it -- Cristiano Ronaldo, Thierry Henry, Suarez -- or after it -- Gianfranco Zola, Gianluca Vialli and most of the rest of the initial invasion. There have been some who have found sanctuary here after being undervalued at clubs abroad -- Henry again, Patrick Vieira -- and others who have come from smaller leagues, where success is not (rightly or wrongly) seen as the ultimate gauge of quality: the likes of Ruud van Nistelrooy and Ricardo Carvalho. - Rory Smith

Don't Blame David Moyes, Manchester United's Crisis Has Been Years in the Making In the summer of 2009, Manchester United had the chance to create a dynasty. They had just won the league for the third year in a row, and reached their second Champions League final in succession. A team of kids had taken Everton to penalties in the FA Cup semi-final, demonstrating the depth of talent percolating the senior squad. Sure, they had been well beaten in the Champions League final by Barcelona, and sold Cristiano Ronaldo days later. But Sir Alex Ferguson still had a core of world-class players in Wayne Rooney, Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand. The £80m he received for Ronaldo, coupled with the huge sums being generated through TV and gate receipts, could have funded four or five marquee signings, to address any weaknesses in the squad and establish United as Europe's premier club for years. What happened? Ferguson replaced Ronaldo with Antonio Valencia, which is a bit like replacing a Ferrari with a Volkswagen Pol ...

Madrid's midfield is currently being dominated by Cristiano Ronaldo, Luka Modric and Gareth Bale, with Angel Di Maria a popular substitute choice. Isco has been an unused subs in Real's last two matches; the 3-2 La Liga win over Rayo Vallecano and, more recently and ominously, the crucial Champions League victory over Juventus. The 21-year-old Spain midfielder came to prominence at Malaga over two seasons when he was coached by Manuel Pellegrini who is now manager at Manchester City and Arsene Wenger is a long-term admirer and proved with the capture of Mesut Ozil that he is happy to splash the cash on the right talent. Real paid around £25m for Isco's services in August but that was before the club smashed the world record transfer fee of £86m paid to Tottenham for Gareth Bale who has forced the Spanish playmaker down the pecking order.

Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti believes it is Cristiano Ronaldo's time to win the Ballon d'Or this year, ahead of Lionel Messi and Franck Ribery. The Portuguese star has played second fiddle to Barcelona ace Messi since winning the prize for the first time back in 2008, with the Argentine claiming the last four titles in a row, but Ancelotti believes he deserves to win the latest crown for the all-round impact he has on the Spanish giants. "It's Cristiano's moment to win it ahead of Messi and Ribery," Ancelotti told TV programme El Larguero. "He has surprised me the most with his professionalism. He's very serious, he has amazing attention to detail. It's that which helps us the most - he doesn't just score." Ancelotti went on to explain his decision to allow Mesut Ozil to join Arsenal this summer, claiming he prefers Angel Di Maria for the balance he brings to the team alongside €100 million signing Gareth Bale. "It was a technical decision [to sell Ozil]," he continued. "I prefer Di Maria for the ba ...

Realsport-InfoMadrid 'crisis' after derby setback Mon 30 Sep 2013 . Message Atletico Madrid’s 1-0 win at the Bernabeu on Saturday has plunged Carlo Ancelotti and Real Madrid into crisis -- at least, according to the Spanish media. Both Madrid-leaning sports papers featured a puzzled-looking Ancelotti on their covers on Monday. AS headlined: 'Ancelotti’s made a mess', while Marca asked: “Where do we start, Carlo?” and listed what it said were the Italian’s recent mistakes. Problems identified by both papers, just 100 days into Ancelotti’s reign at the Bernabeu, include not starting Luka Modric against Atletico, leaving out Dani Carvajal and playing Fabio Coentrao, some “baffling” substitutions, an over-reliance on Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale’s stuttering start, the surprise sale of Mesut Ozil, and the embarrassment of losing a second consecutive Madrid derbi to their poorer rivals. Much discontent has focused on Ancelotti’s persistence with the out-of-form Karim Benzema up front. AS ...

The former Manchester United forward signed a new contract to keep him tied to the Santiago Bernabeu until 2018.

Mesut Ozil has urged Real Madrid to do everything in their power to keep Cristiano Ronaldo at the club.
Carlo Ancelotti's first match in charge of Real Madrid will be against . . . Bournemouth. Bournemouth, known as the Cherries, have played most of their recent football in the third and fourth tiers of English football and last season won promotion to the Championship, the second tier. It's safe to say the visit of Madrid, with first team supposedly in tow, will be the highlight of their season, and a match that will live long in the club's history for years to come. Cristiano Ronaldo, Mesut Ozil, Iker Casillas all playing in their stadium. A real one-off, a match to remember. Bournemouth won't be making the Champions League anytime soon and probably won't be winning promotion to the Premier League, either. It should be a momentous occasion for Bournemouth's loyal fans, albeit a relatively small band. It should be. Though the match, albeit still a massive coup for the the club, has hit the headlines for the wrong reasons over in England, with Bournemouth deciding to charge a whopping 60 pounds for adults a ...
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. Only big names from the top two, such as Andres Iniesta, Lionel Messi, Mesut Ozil, Cesc Fabregas, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo, have created more goals for their team-mates in Spain this year. 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 ...

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 ...

Borussia Dortmund's head coach, Jürgen Klopp, left, and Real Madrid's José Mourinho agonise from the sidelines at the Bernabéu. Photograph: Kiko Huesca/EPA Borussia Dortmund are on their way to Wembley but only just. Jürgen Klopp's side rode out an opening storm and a late, late siege to reach the final on 25 May. Just when it appeared that their passage would prove a comfortable one, two goals in the final eight minutes, first from Karim Benzema and then from Sergio Ramos, left them hanging on. "I thought if God wills it, we'll go to the final; if he doesn't, we won't," Klopp said of the final heart-stopping minutes. In the end they made it. A 2-0 defeat, Dortmund's first in four matches against Madrid, was not enough to deny them a trip to London that Klopp said was "absolutely deserved". He had a point: Dortmund appeared to be cruising to the finish line while Madrid limped behind them. Gonzalo Higuaín, Cristiano Ronaldo and Mesut Ozil all missed clear opportunities in a breathless start as Madrid ...
The home side will count on Cristiano Ronaldo, Mesut Ozil - who is recently enjoying a goal form in the league and lastly Angel Di Maria.

La Liga:Sergio Ramos EARNS Real Madrid CLASSICO WIN OVER BARCA; Real Madrid cut the gap between them and Barcelona to 13 points with a morale-boosting 2-1 win over the Catalans at the Santiago Bernabeu. Karim Benzema gave Los Blancos an early lead but Lionel Messi levelled just over 10 minutes later to become the joint-top scorer of all time in the Clasico. Sergio Ramos headed in a corner to restore Madrid's lead with nine minutes remaining, and Victor Valdes was sent off on the final whistle for a second yellow card after arguing with referee Miguel Angel Perez Lasa. Madrid coach Jose Mourinho, presumably with an eye on his side's Champions League last 16 second leg match against Manchester United at Old Trafford in three days time, put out a very different team to the one that beat Barcelona last Tuesday in the semi-final second leg of the Copa Del Rey. Cristiano Ronaldo, Mesut Ozil, Sami Khedira, Gonzalo Higuain and Alvaro Arbeloa all started on the bench, with Kaka, Benzema, Luka Modric, Alvaro Morata ...

WHAT WE LEARNT FROM YESTERDAY’S El Clasico. BARCELONA • Barcelona are not invincible anymore. • Barcelona’s domination of the game quickly coming to an end. • The Catalan team can no longer win six titles in a year. • Barcelona struggle when Lionel Messi is marked out. • Barca find it difficult playing against a counter-attacking minded team. • The tiki-taka style of play is fast becoming old-fashioned as teams have now found a way of rendering it ineffective. • Barcelona can no longer defeat Real Madrid 5-0. • Barca need a coach after all, contrary to insinuations that they can play well even without a coach. • Xavi and Puyol are spent forces. Therefore, they can offer Barcelona very little now. Real Madrid • Cristiano Ronaldo is no longer a big game choker. • Real Madrid’s “galacticos” era is gradually coming back. • Madrid are arguably the best counter-attacking team in the world. • Raphael Varane is already a world-class defender. Even at his age, he is already few ...
Deportivo 1-2 Real Madrid: Late Higuain strike saves three points for visitors Deportivo manager Fernando Vazquez faced a monumental challenge in just his second week in charge of the squad, as the reigning La Liga champions, Real Madrid came to Riazor looking for a warm-up ahead of their double match-up with Barcelona. By Tom Conn It was clear from the starting line-ups that Real Madrid were putting their focus on this week’s upcoming matchups, as the starting XI featured Kaka, Jose Callejon, Ricardo Carvalho, Michael Essien, Luke Modric and Marcelo rather than Cristiano Ronaldo, Mesut Ozil, Karim Benzema, Sami Khedira, Sergio Ramos or Fabio Coentrao. Deportivo, meanwhile, were in full force with Riki, Pizzi, Valeron, Bruno Gama all featuring in the attack. Deportivo looked to be the stronger of the two sides early on, forcing the Real Madrid defence to react with two very good strikes by both Pizzin and Riki, while Real Madrid seemed to fault in the attack without their normal cast of characters.

Phil Jones leads Manchester United's thrilling fulfilment of promise | Jamie Jackson David De Gea, Jonny Evans, Phil Jones and Danny Welbeck showed stunning displays of maturity in the Champions League draw with Real Madrid As the stars of Manchester United's courageous hit-and-run raid on Real Madrid Phil Jones, Danny Welbeck, David De Gea, and Jonny Evans go down in footballing lore as using the Santiago Bernabéu's intense cathedral as the venue for their coming out party. It was a spine – goalkeeper, central defender, defensive midfielder and forward – handed great responsibility in this opening Champions League last-16 leg by Sir Alex Ferguson. They were to blunt Madrid's attacking forces of Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, Angel dí Maria and Mesut Ozil while also nabbing a vital away goal, which Welbeck did with his fine 20th-minute header. Jones is 20, Welbeck and De Gea are 22 while Evans at 25 also falls into the emerging player category as he begins to usurp the ageing Rio Ferdinand and Ne ...

Manchester United recall Rio Ferdinand to the heart of their defence alongside Jonny Evans, so there is no Nemanja Vidic, who is not even in the squad. Michael Carrick joins Phil Jones as the midfield anchor while Shinji Kagawa gives the side an attacking slant with Robin Van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck all starting. Real Madrid make five changes to the team that beat Sevilla last weekend with Xabi Alonso, Sami Khedira and Mesut Ozil among the inclusions joining star man Cristiano Ronaldo.
It’s hardly a surprise to see that Cristiano Ronaldo would lead the attacking line in this line-up, as the Portuguese former United player is in hot form – again scoring a hat-trick this weekend. But Marca say that Mourinho will have no place for former Spurs player Luka Modric, Michael Essien or Kaka in his starting team, and that his XI will be as follows:Diego Lopez, Alvaro Arbeloa, Sergio Ramos, Pepe, Fabio Coentrao, Xabi Alonso, Sami Khedira, Angel Di Maria, Mesut Ozil, Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema

Jose Mourinho welcomes Sergio Ramos, Fabio Coentrao and Angel Di Maria back to his line-up for Real Madrid's Liga clash against Granada after all three were suspended for Wednesday's 1-1 Copa Del Rey draw with Barcelona, while Cristiano Ronaldo has shrugged off an ankle injury to also start. Recent signing Diego Lopez continues in goal in the absence of the injured Iker Casillas and Luka Modric replaces Mesut Ozil in midfield after the Germany international picked up a one-match ban for accumulating five yellow cards.
HONOURS EVEN AT THE BERNABEU Real Madrid and Barcelona have it all to play for in the second leg of their Copa Del Rey semi-final after an entertaining 1-1 draw at the Bernabeu on Wednesday night. Both sides had plenty of chances during an enthralling first half but the opener did not arrive until five minutes into the second period when Cesc Fabregas latched onto Lionel Messi's through ball to fire past Diego Lopez. Madrid got the equaliser their performance merited nine minutes from time when the game's outstanding performer, Raphael Varane, rose to head home Mesut Ozil's cross. The big news before the match was the decision of Madrid coach Jose Mourinho to hand a debut to goalkeeper Lopez after he rejoined the club from Sevilla last week as cover for the injured Iker Casillas. But it was Barca's second-choice goalkeeper, Jose Manuel Pinto, who was first into the action, clawing away Cristiano Ronaldo's dipping free-kick from under his crossbar. Barca began to take control after that early scare and the ...

MAN UTD WON'T BE GIVING MOURINHO SLEEPLESS NIGHTS Under his hood, Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho is unlikely to have been concerned checking on Champions League opponents Manchester United yesterday. In the first 45, United were a class apart from Liverpool . But once the visitors started pressing United's midfield,all the long-standing doubts about Sir Alex Ferguson 's current team again emerged. The midfield struggled to keep the ball, individuals faded and David De Gea, again, let the opposition into the game with an elementary goalkeeping error. If Danny Sturridge and Fabio Borini can give United the shakes, then what chance against Cristiano Ronaldo , Xabi Alonso and Mesut Ozil next month? No matter Real's Liga form, on paper they'reas far ahead of United as the Premier League giants are of Liverpool .
Cristiano Ronaldo:"Rivalry with Messi's? Not true. He works for the team and I for mine". Iniesta:"It's a very special for me to be here, with these two players. It's a privilege for me." Messi:"I do not compete against anyone. Trying to do the best for my computer" -.

After spending a couple of seasons in Messi’s shadow, Ronaldo has emerged as an even stronger candidate this year to lift football’s most coveted individual trophy.

CAN FERGIE'S MIDFIELD OVERCOME REAL? Does Sir Alex Ferguson really believe Manchester United can win the Champions League with his current midfield? They were hardly swashbuckling in qualification from their group and now face Cristiano Ronaldo's Real Madrid. Ferguson insists he's happy with what he has, but Michael Carrick and Tom Cleverley will have to have career best games to see off the likes of Xabi Alonso, Mesut Ozil, Sami Khedira and Luka Modric. Good enough for the Premier League? Yes. But it's a struggle to believe how Ferguson sees his midfield overcoming what Jose Mourinho can call upon.
Real Madrid against Manchester United. A pairing with Real Madrid will see Cristiano Ronaldo makes his return to Manchester United three-and-a-half years after leaving Old Trafford.

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’ ...

Cristiano Ronaldo stood over a free kick late in Real Madrid's Champions League battle against Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday, and the former world player of the year stepped aside for Mesut Ozil. Ozil did not waste the opportunity. The German international drove a free kick from 22 yards over the wall and off the inside of the right post in the 89th minute, giving Real Madrid a 2-2 draw at the Bernabeu that left the Spanish side in contention for first in Group D.

.Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo were both in scintillating form as Barcelona and Real Madrid played out an enthralling 2-2 draw at Camp Nou in the first Liga Clasico of this season. Despite coming as just the seventh fixture of the season, the match was touted as having a potentially huge impact on the final Liga outcome. With Madrid in need of a win, Ronaldo got the club off to the perfect start as he silenced the crowd with his sixth consecutive Clasico goal. But a brace from Messi, including a sumptuoussecond-half free kick, put the Blaugrana in the driving seat. However, the last had not been heard of Ronaldo and he capitalized on a disorganized defense to equalize 25 minutes from time. After all the intense build-up, the first surprise of the night was sprung as news filtered through that in the absence of Gerard Pique and Carles Puyol, Adriano would start alongside Javier Mascherano in the center of defense. Mourinho, meanwhile, opted for Karim Benzema and Mesut Ozil. The teams were greeted on t ...

Mourinho: Ref made a big mistake Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho was again critical of the referee's performance during Sunday's 2-2 draw at Barcelona, but his claims were swiftly dismissed by Tito Vilanova. Two goals apiece from Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo meant a share of the spoils at the Camp Nou, with Barcelona retaining their eight-point lead in the Primera Division standings. Much of the attention post-match was on two controversial moments early in the second half when, with the score at 1-1, referee Carlos Delgado Ferreiro first waved away a Madrid penalty appeal after Mesut Ozil tumbled over Javier Mascherano's challenge inside the area and then dismissed Barca calls for a spot kick when Pepe halted Andres Iniesta's run on the edge of the box. Mourinho said it went against his club's traditions to complain about referees but then went on to do just that. "Madrid is a gentlemanly club and penalties not signalled cannot be talked about," Mourinho said. "This is the philosophy of the club and ...
This is the Real Madrid we knew and loved from last season. A Madrid side cruising to victory. A Madrid side with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring hat tricks for fun. A Madrid side with the strength in depth to bring on Mesut Ozil, Angel Di Maria and Sami Khedira from the bench in a Champions League group game. A Madrid side with individual brilliance, yet playing tremendously as a team unit. It's a Madrid side that's steadily recapturing the form of last season's record-breaking campaign, and that form is returning just in time for you-know-what this weekend ~ ESPN
I cant really believe what am seeing tonite! Real Madrid are really teaching these boys a lesson, from the left by KING Cristiano Ronaldo, from the right by Angel Di Maria, centre by the Brazilian Kaka, Luka Modric nd Mesut Ozil, up-front by Karim Benzema. Hmn. The most DEVASTATING and FRIGHTENING attack one could ever imagine!!!
Oh my goodness this game is insane. Real Madrid are up 3-2 thanks to a Cristiano Ronaldo goal. Presumably he'll be somewhat less sad after cutting inside Pablo Zabaleta and fizzing in a right-footed effort that dips horribly right in front of Joe Hart and bounces straight into his goal. That strike came a minute or so after Mesut Ozil and Karim Benzema managed to fail to score an open goal, but they're not going to care about that now -- they have their lead and it looks like it should hold.
Come kick-off, the cameras will train their lenses on the vast array of talent on the field - Cristiano Ronaldo, Xabi Alonso, Mesut Ozil,Karim Benzema,Iker Casillas,Sergio Ramos,Angel Di Maria,Luka Modric, Sammy Khedira,kaka,Gonzalo Higuain ,Yaya Toure, David Silva,Sergio Aguero,Carlos Tevez,Edin Dzeko,Mario Balotelli,Samir Nasri,Gareth Barry,Vincent company,Maicon,Gael clichy - the list goes on. But the dynamic in the dugout is likely to be just as compelling.

Getty Images Real Madrid dispatched AC Milan 5-1 at Yankee Stadium on Wednesday to round off its penultimate match in the World Football Challenge in style. Cristiano Ronaldo stole the show in New York City, finishing off a pair of counterattacks with aplomb to send the Spanish side on its way to a victory that it fully warranted. Angel Di Maria had earlier given Madrid the lead after 25 minutes with a swerving volley, but Robinho stabbed home a surprise equalizer eight minutes later to send the match into the break all square. However, Ronaldo took over in the second half with his brace before a late header from Sergio Ramos and a goal from Jose Callejon at the death put matters beyond any doubt. Karim Benzema and Mesut Ozil were among those handed a start by Mourinho, who fielded a strong group to begin the match, with 22-year-old defender Nacho the only unfamiliar name. Massimiliano Allegri followed suit with his XI, playing a host of regulars, with Kevin-Prince Boateng lining up just behind Robinho an ...

She is comfortable stickig to Spain throughout the tournament. Hilton, i guess might ve supported Germany bcos of Mesut Ozil, but Balotelli scuppered that slot for Italy.
