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 ...
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 ...
Draft: the draft results are in from the first league draft and Round 1 picks were: (1) Cristiano Ronaldo, (2) Leo Messi, (3) Gareth Bale, (4) Diego Godín, (5) Neymar Jr., (6) Luis Suarez, (7) Yaya Touré, and (8) Juan Francisco Torres "Juanfran". Some sneaky late round picks: Sami Khedira (17th round), Tim Howard (18th round), Mario Mandžukić (18th round)...remember to re-rank if you have some sleeper picks that you'd like!
Toni Kroos: I am looking forward to playing alongside guys like Cristiano Ronaldo, Sergio Ramos and Sami Khedira.
Congratulations Germany, The New World Champions. We want to congratulate Sami Khedira and our newest recruit Toni Kroos. Majority of the world were hoping for Germany to win to secure Cristiano Ronaldo's CROWN as the World Most Prolific Player. It could have been an injustice if his works and success for more than 5months is undermined by someone winning a less-than-a-month tournament. How do you feel about all these? NB: Toni Kroos may be unveiled before the end of this week. James Rodriguez deal is also close to an agreement because Monaco's president is ready to sell. Hala Madrid!!!
Muller-inspired Germany thrash ten-man Portugal Germany sent a message to the rest of the competitors here in Brazil with a 4-0 demolition of Portugal. The Lusitanians got no joy out of superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, suffered two injuries to key players, and Pepe saw red just before half-time. The Germans, for their part, were in supreme form, scoring almost at will and getting the tournament’s first hat-trick through Thomas Muller. Portugal had the first chance of the game in sunny Salvador, but Ronaldo’s effort from a tight angle was a false dawn. The Germans were in total control in short order and surged into attack. Portuguese keeper Rui Patricio misplayed the ball out of his area, gifting it to the feet of Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira, who somehow pushed his shot at the open goal wide of the mark. Minutes later, however, the Germans got their first goal. Mario Gotze was too quick and too clever for Joao Pereira, who resorted to dragging him down in the area. Thomas Muller stepped up to conv ...
Sami Khedira: "Cristiano Ronaldo is the most ambitious player in the world. It will be hard to stop him but we are Germany and we want to win I hope he doesn't have his day against us. It's no surprise I'm saying this as he's the best in the world." ©zht

Team-mates... now rivals: Aguero v Dzeko, Suarez v Sturridge and more in our top 10 clashes at the World Cup in Brazil. In England, Spain and Germany, they're team-mates. In Brazil, they're nothing of the sort. The World Cup never fails to deliver key battles, and 2014 will be no different. Lionel Messi and Ronaldinho went through it. One an Argentinian star, the other a Brazilian wizard, both Barcelona team-mates of five years.

Real Madrid vs. Bayern Munich Preview, kick off time 9.45pm Team News for Real Madrid Álvaro Arbeloa and Jesé will certainly miss out, while Sami Khedira isn't expected to feature despite returning to training. Marcelo, Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo are doubts, though will be handed late fitness tests. However, Carlo Ancelotti may be tempted to field a similar XI to the one that overcame Barcelona in the Copa Del Rey final last Wednesday.

Real Madrid head into the game without the injured Álvaro Arbeloa and Jesé, while Sami Khedira hasn't yet recovered from his long-term layoff. However, the doubtful Marcelo and Cristiano Ronaldo are both included in Carlo Ancelotti's squad, so they could make their returns. Copa Del Rey hero Gareth Bale is also included, despite missing training on Monday with the flu. Bayern Munich have goalkeeper Manuel Neuer back available after a calf injury, with the German international fit to play. His usual backup Tom Starke is, however, definitely unavailable, along with the long-term injured Holger Badstuber, Thiago Alcântara and Xherdan Shaqiri. Everyone else should be available, despite some question marks over the fitness of David Alaba and Thomas Müller.
Real Madrid welcome Sami Khedira back to training but Cristiano Ronaldo will miss out on Copa Del Rey final

Nothing much has been happening in the Bundesliga lately with all the international fixtures etc. But, here's what little news I can find: Arjen Robben will miss out on the Netherlands vs Columbia after the ankle injury he picked up against Japan in their 2-2 draw. Roman Weidenfeller, goalkeeper for Borussia Dortmund, will be making his first international cap against England tonight with Joachim Low saying he has faith in the goalkeeper.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hat-trick and Real Madrid rattled in four goals before halftime in a 5-1 La Liga rout of Real Sociedad at the Bernabeu. The prolific Portugal forward took his tally for the season to an unmatched 16 goals from 13 games in La Liga, adding to his top scorer status in the Champions League where he has eight from four games. Karim Benzema and Sami Khedira added the others as Carlo Ancelotti's men climbed on to 31 points in third place, two behind city rivals Atletico Madrid, who visit promoted Villarreal on Sunday. Unbeaten leaders Barcelona have 34 points and visit struggling Real Betis in Sunday's late game. Ancelotti appears to have settled on a striking trio of Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo, a frontline dubbed 'The BBC' in the local media, and their devastating pace tore apart the Basque visitors in the first half. Ronaldo had already struck the crossbar when he notched the opener in the 12th minute. A floated cross from Benzema found him unmarked at the back ...
Goals from South American duo Neymar and Alexis Sanchez gave Barcelona a 2-1 win in El Clasico over Real Madrid. Barcelona took the lead just 19 minutes in when Neymar, on his El Clasico debut, found the corner of the net after being played in by Andres Iniesta. Real pushed hard for an equaliser with Victor Valdes producing fine saves from Sami Khedira and Cristiano Ronaldo. Ronaldo also had a very good penalty shout waved away before Karim Benzema rattled the crossbar with a stinging drive. But the win was sealed by Barcelona substitute Sanchez when he beautifully chipped home with 12 minutes remaining. Real pulled one back in added time when Jese latched onto Ronaldo's ball to fire under Valdes, but it was too little too late for the visitors. The win means Barcelona maintain their unbeaten start to the season and moves them some six points clear of Real. Bale Gareth Bale made his second start for Real Madrid but was unable to influence the game and had a frustrating evening, only managing two long-rang ...
“El Classico Appetizer” El Clasico is back, are we in for a treat? Not only will Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo face each other once more, but the mouthwatering prospect of witnessing Neymar and Gareth Bale on the same turf is also a real possibility. Will any of the new boys perform? Read on to find out. Highlights Real Madrid kick off and immediately attack down the left flank. Marcelo bursts forward and plays the ball to Ronaldo, who stubs a tame shot towards Victor Valdes. Madrid continues to maintain possession and box Barcelona into their half across the opening 10 minutes. Sami Khedira dinks a pace just beyond Isco, but Valdes scampers off his line to collect. Barca finally head into Madrid’s box with a quarter of an hour on the clock. Gerardo Martino's side spray some fine passes around before Xavi cuts in from the right flank and finds Messi inside Madrid's area. The Argentinian is easily dispossessed. Pedro follows this forward play by lashing a cross into the box, but it’s easily cl ...
DERBY RECAP. Real Madrid were never able of creating real danger to Simeone's team. Los Blancos are five points behind Barcelona and Atlético already. Ancelotti decided to start with Modric on the bench, giving the Khedira-Illarramendi midfield another chance. Bale also started on the bench after his small thigh injury, so Ángel Di María was given the opportunity to be the starter once again. The rest of the lineup was expected, with Arbeloa playing as Real's right back and Coentrao filling in for Marcelo. Real Madrid started the game with intensity with some good defensive efforts by the midfielders. Isco even had a chance to shoot the ball, but Atlético's defense deflected it. Atlético Madrid pressed really high and Diego López was forced to go aerial and pass it to Cristiano Ronaldo instead of starting the play with Illarramendi. Those difficulties became obvious as soon as Di María turned the ball over in a very dangerous position. Diego Costa scored passed Diego López with ease and Atlético ...
To me this should be Real Madrid C.F.'s line-up, we should get rid Karim Benzema as soon as possible: | - Cristiano Ronaldo - | | - Gareth Bale - Isco - Angel Di Maria - | | - Luka Modric - Sami Khedira - | | Fábio Coentrão - Sergio Ramos - Raphaël Varane Officiel - Carvajal | | - Lopez - | Notes: - Cristiano can play as CF as he is doing for his national team Portugal. Bale played for Tottenham Hotspur as LMF, so this will be his perfect place. - When Xabi & Marceloa will return, we'll have to swap Xabi with Khedira and Marceloa with Coentrao.
Opportunistic attacking and an absolutely suffocating defense earned Atlético Madrid a 1-0 derby win over Real Madrid Saturday night at the Santiago Bernabéu. It was the first league win for Atlético over their city rivals since 1999 when the legendary Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink's brace paced Atlético to a 3-1 win. The victory also continues Atlético's perfect start to the league season with seven wins out of seven matches. Real boss Carlo Ancelotti elected to field a starting XI in a 4-2-3-1 with a bit more muscle to it as Asier Illarramendi was added to the defensive midfield along with Sami Khedira. Behind them was a back four of Fabio Coentrão, Sergio Ramos, Pepe and Álvaro Arbelo, while Diego López once again was in goal. Isco anchored the attacking midfield with Ángel Di María and Cristiano Ronaldo out on the flanks while Karim Benzema started up top at striker. As for Atlético manager Diego Simeone, he rolled out a traditional 4-4-2 formation with Thibaut Courtois in goal, a back line of Fi ...

Real Madrid-Osasuna Preview: Los Merengues eye winning end to Mourinho era The Portuguese coach will bring his three-year reign at the Santiago Bernabeu to a close on Saturday By Karthick Arvinth 31 May 2013 09:15:00 Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo could miss the home encounter against Osasuna as he continues to manage a back problem. Raphael Varane (knee) and Sami Khedira (suspension) are both sidelined, while Pepe, Xabi Alonso and Kaka are all doubts. However, goalkeeper Iker Casillas and defenders Sergio Ramos and Fabio Coentrao should be available after missing the 3-3 draw at Real Sociedad through injury. Osasuna defender Damia is suspended after picking up his 15th booking of the season in the win over Sevilla but midfielder Nano is available after serving a one-match ban. Lolo, Miguel Flano, Sisi, Anthony Annan and Nino are all out injured for the visitors, who have already secured their top-flight status for next season. DID YOU KNOW?

Blues could also bid for in-demand Spurs ace. Chelsea could enter the race to sign in-demand Tottenham star Gareth Bale, it has emerged, with incoming Blues manager Jose Mourinho keen to spend big in this summer’s transfer window. Mourinho has been confirmed as leaving current club Real Madrid at the end of the season, and he has supposedly already held talks to rejoin his former club Chelsea to replace interim manager Rafael Benitez next season. Rumour has it, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich will hand the Portuguese coach a massive £100million to spend in the upcoming transfer window, and a number of big names have been linked with the Europa League winners already. Mourinho had been linked with a big-money raid on Real, as he is apparently keen to take the likes of Sami Khedira and Luka Modric with him to Stamford Bridge, as well as shock bid for former Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo. However, he may be priced out of a move for Ronaldo, as big-spending PSG are said to be preparing an offer o ...

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 ...
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. Fina ...
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
. . . keep calm!! this just another el grand classico!!! gud lak for Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, Jose Callejón, my hero Mesut Özil, Sami Khedira, Xabi Alonso, Michael Essíen, young star Raphaël Varane, Ricardo Carvalho, Álvaro Arbeloa and congratulations for the first el classico match for Diego Lopez!!! keep calm and trust mourinho!!!
Ronaldo passes 300 club goals « on: Today at 09:27:44 AM » Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hat-trick and passed the landmark of 300 club goals as Real Madrid put a turbulent week behind them with a 4-0 win at home to Getafe in La Liga on Sunday to close to within four points of second-placed Atletico Madrid. The build-up to the game at the Bernabeu had been dominated by a report in Marca sports daily that said captains Iker Casillas and Sergio Ramos had threatened to leave unless coach Jose Mourinho was dismissed. Real president Florentino Perez called a news conference to deny the story and accused the newspaper of lying and the Spanish champions let their football do the talking with a comfortable victory against their city rivals. Mourinho, who turned 50 on Saturday, left several key players out of his starting lineup, including Xabi Alonso and Sami Khedira, and Real struggled to break through a determined Getafe defence in the first half. Once Ramos had scrambled the ball into the net at a corner eight m ...

Ronaldo grabs hat trick, Sevilla through Cristiano Ronaldo grabbed a hat-trick to see Real Madrid progress in the Copa Del Rey at the expense of Celta Vigo. The free-scoring Portugal forward helped Madrid turned around a 1-2 deficit with a 4-0 second-leg win. Ronaldo got them going in the third minute, cutting in and swerving a shot across goal and beyond the perplexed Sergio Alvarez. He made it two in the 23rd minute, volleying in Luka Modric`s chip over the top, with his hat-trick coming three minutes from the end as he made good of Gonzalo Higuain`s pass. Sami Khedira made it four, with Sergio Ramos' sending off the one black spot for Madrid. Sevilla, who were already 5-0 up against Real Mallorca, were afforded the luxury of taking it easy tonight, with a 2-1 defeat doing no harm. They actually led through Manu del Moral's 22nd-minute opener, but half-time substitute Thomas Brandon and Alejandro Alfaro at least earned Mallorca a win on the night after the break. In the night's other game, Real Zaragoza ...

Cristiano Ronaldo was brilliant today VS Celta, he proved why he should have won the Ballon D'or, he scored an absolute amazing goal in the early stages of the game, then his second goal was good and the assist by Luka Modric was sheer class by the former Tottenham Hotspurs midfielder, his 3rd goal was fired past the keeper after an amazing pass by Ozil. Cristiano Ronaldo was amazing with his dribbling and his passes, he also assisted Sami Khedira's goal in the closing stages of the match and he should have scored 4 today after his goal was ruled offside the officials, which was a wrong decision as he was onside. Cristiano Ronaldo has netted 5 goals in 2013 in 2 games and he should and he has now scored 174 goals in 172 matches for Real Madrid. Cristiano Ronaldo has 19 Career Hat tricks. -SZ
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.

Real Madrid 4-3 Real Sociedad: Ronaldo leads Los Blancos to dramatic win In a chaotic match that saw two red cards and Casillas benched again, the capital outfit did just enough to survive Xabi Prieto's hat-trick to clinch a vital Liga victory By Keeghann Sinanan Jan 6, 2013 5:50:00 PMReal Madrid secured a priceless 4-3 victory over Real Sociedad in a thrilling Liga clash at Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday. Jose Mourinho dropped Iker Casillas to the bench in favor of Antonio Adan for the second game running, and matters seemed to be going according to plan when Karim Benzema put the hosts in front after only two minutes. However, it all fell apart for Madrid and Mourinho four minutes later, as Adan conceded a penalty and was sent off for a professional foul, allowing Xabi Prieto to equalize from the spot. Sami Khedira would put Los Blancos back in front, but Prieto pegged them back once more five minutes before the break. The second half was just as eventful, as Cristiano Ronaldo appeared to put the match out ...
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.
And it had been coming. Madrid, missing Karim Benzema and Gonzalo Higuain through injury, missed chances in the first half but went in at the break on level terms after Cristiano Ronaldo - who had earlier erred - improvised impressively to finish from Sami Khedira's cross moments before the interval. Psychologically, it was the perfect way to end what had been a largely disappointing first half for the home team and when Fabio Coentrao made it 2-1 shortly after the interval, that appeared to be that. But Madrid seldom seemed sure of themselves and struggled to carve out opportunities against a well-organised Espanyol side who posed plenty of danger on the break. Sergio Garcia had got between Sergio Ramos and Pepe to race clear and rifle home the opener, and the former Spain striker was afforded several more chances in the first 45 minutes. Madrid, meanwhile, do not seem to know what to do much of the time when they are forced to take the initiative against a side defending deeply. This is nothing new and ...
The international break was far from kind to Real Madrid with seven of their players returning to the Spanish capital with injuries. All three senior full backs in Jose Mourinho's squad, Marcelo, Fabio Coentrao and Alvaro Arbeloa have been ruled out for the next few weeks, whilst Raphael Varane, Sami Khedira, Karim Benzema and Gonzalo Higuain are all doubts for this weekend's clash with Celta Vigo. Their absence is likely to mean a senior debut for Nacho Fernandez at left-back with Sergio Ramos moving to right-back and Raul Albiol coming into the heart of the defence. Further forward Cristiano Ronaldo could be utilised through the middle as the central striker or there could be a rare start for another youngster Alvaro Morata.
Real Madrid made it two wins from two in Group D as a Cristiano Ronaldo hat-trick guided them to a comfortable 4-1 win away at Ajax. The Spanish champions had been frustrated by Ajax goalkeeper Kenneth Vermeer for most of thefirst half but finally made the breakthrough just before half-time when Ronaldo tapped in from Karim Benzema's cross. Benzema then made it two after the interval with a stunning bicycle kick from Kaka's cross but Niklas Moisander briefly gave the Dutch champions hope when he headed in to reduce the arrears eight minutes later. However, that hope was extinguished with 11 minutes remaining when Ronaldo smashed homethe visitors' third from outside the area, before completing the rout with a lovely chip over Vermeer soon after. Real had needed a very late turnaround to take the three points against Manchester City on matchday one but they were in complete control from the start in Amsterdam on Wednesday nightand were only denied a bigger win by a string of fine saves from Vermeer. Threate ...
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

Real Madrid's La Liga title defence got off to a stuttering start when they dropped two crucial home points in a 1-1 draw with Valencia on a hot Sunday night in the Spanish capital. Gonzalo Higuain put Real ahead on nine minutes before Jonas Goncalves equalised just before the interval for a plucky Valencia side. Jose Mourinho decided to start with Higuain, leaving Karim Benzema on the bench, perhaps to reward the Argentine striker's decision to stay at the club over the summer. Also surprising was Mourinho's decision to start with ex-Arsenal and Chelsea midfielder Lass Diarra ahead of Sami Khedira . Valencia's new coach Mauricio Pellegrino started with three new signings in Joao Pereira, Andres Guardado and ex-Madrid midfielder Fernando Gago . The game began with Cristiano Ronaldo taking less than two minutes to show his intent, cutting in from the left to fire a shot narrowly wide, but from that moment on the Portuguese star was subdued. When Angel Di Maria went close on four minutes from long range it ...
Primera Division holders Real Madrid began the new campaign with a 1-1 draw against Valencia at the Bernabeu after Jonas cancelled out Gonzalo Higuain's early strike. Los Che, who finished third last season, were well worthy of a point and should have had three but Roberto Soldado's second-half strike was wrongfully ruled out for offside. Madrid, who have not made any new signings so far this summer, lined up largely as expected although Lassana Diarra was preferred to Sami Khedira and Higuain chosen ahead of Karim Benzema. In his first match in charge, former Los Che centre half Mauricio Pellegrino elected to start recently acquired trio Andres Guardado, Joao Pereira and Fernando Gago, with fellow new arrivals, Jonathan Viera and Nelson Valdez on the bench. The champions made a bright start and after both Cristiano Ronaldo and Angel Di Maria came close early on, Higuain gave the home side the lead with just 10 minutes on the clock. A wonderful ball over the top of the Valencia backline from Di Maria foun ...

At the back, Glen Johnson made several blocks as England kept the Azzurri out, while Pepe was dominant in defence for Portugal, not even allowing the Czechs a shot on target. Mats Hummels was solid in Germany's 4-2 victory over Greece, while Jordi Alba produced an inspired display in both attack and defence as Spain dominated France. Xabi Alonso marked his 100th cap with a superb brace to send La Roja into the semi-finals. Andrea Pirlo proved to be Italy's heartbeat once again, controlling the game against England, and then chipped home a cheeky penalty in the shoot-out. Another of Germany's top performers was Sami Khedira, who was inspirational against the Greeks, lashing home a thunderous volley. Marco Reus and Miroslav Klose combined to devastating effect, both scoring fine goals in Germany's triumph. Finally, Cristiano Ronaldo was the hero for Portugal once again, sending his side into the last four with a thumping header.
Glad to see some camaraderie between teammates, watching the Portugal vs Germany soccer game and Pepe gives a hand to Mesut Özil and pats him on the back. Lots of Real Madrid players in this match: Cristiano Ronaldo, Pepe, Fábio Coentrão, Ricardo Carvalho, Mesut Özil and Sami Khedira. Madrid!!
Christiano Ronaldo scores hatrick Real Madrid rounded their season off in style with a 4-1 win over Mallorca on Sunday night. Cristiano Ronaldo took his season tally to 46 goals by opening the scoring and a strikes from Karim Benzema and Mesut Ozil (brace) completed the win. Gonzalo Castro scored for the visitors. The victory saw Madrid finish on a record 121 goals this season as well as finish with 100 points after 38 games - having won 32 of their games this season. The match saw Madrid firing from the start and Gonazlo Higuain was denied the opener in the sixth minute after a goal was ruled out in a controversial offside decision. Sami Khedira then saw his effort blocked in the seventh minute before the hosts finally broke the deadlock in the 18th minute. Ronaldo got onto the end of a terrific cross from Marcelo ad powered his header home. Four minutes later they would celebrate once more when Ronaldo, Higuain and Benzema combined with the Frenchman capping off the move. Raul Albiol replaced Alvaro Arb ...

Goals from Sami Khedira and Cristiano Ronaldo either side of an Alexis Sanchez close range effort for the home team gave Jose Mourinho’s side a vital win and in all likelihood Madrid’s first title in four years, with seven points now separating them from Barcelona with just four games to play.
Cristiano Ronaldo finally stood up to be counted in a Clasico as record-breaking Real Madrid took a giant step towards wrestling the Primera Division title from Barcelona's grasp. The debate over who is better out of Ronaldo or Barca counterpart Lionel Messi has raged for some time now, but unlike the former, the latter has always been able to call on an impeccable record in this fixture. Tonight, though, Ronaldo stepped up, scoring a 73rd-minute winner that puts Jose Mourinho's men seven points clear of their old foes at the top of the table with four games remaining. He struck just two minutes after Alexis Sanchez had bundled in an equaliser to cancel out Sami Khedira's equally scrappy first-half opener - a goal that set a new record for goals in a league season. It was the Portugal forward's standout contribution on a night when Madrid, humiliated 5-1 on this ground last season, strangled their normally free-passing hosts. Messi was barely allowed a kick and his playmaking team-mates - Xavi and Andres ...

Cristiano Ronaldo shocks Barcelona as Real Madrid close on title Real Madrid's Mesut Ozil, left, congratulates Cristiano Ronaldo on his winning goal at Barcelona in el Clásico. Photograph: Alberto Estevez/EPA Sid Lowe at the Camp Nou The Observer, Sat 21 Apr 2012 21.38 BST Their hope lasted two minutes and nineteen seconds. Just when Barcelona thought there was a chance they might rescue the La Liga title, just as this stadium erupted into noise, just as the faith that had deserted them flooded back, Cristiano Ronaldo tore it all out of their hands again. Alexis Sánchez had given Barcelona a goal and a lifeline with an equaliser midway through the second half, levelling the scores after Sami Khedira had put Madrid ahead in the first half. But 139 seconds later Ronaldo brilliantly stepped around Víctor Valdés to make the return of the title from the Camp Nou to the Bernabéu all but certain. Pep Guardiola had insisted before this latest clásico that the equation was simple: lose or draw and Real Madri ...
