OG.NR Barcelona were 3-1 winners over Spanish league champions Atletico Madrid to move within one point of current league leaders Real Madrid. Atletico sought an early advantage at the Nou Camp but Barcelona weathered the storm, and Lionel Messi evaded the challenge of three defenders and his cross into the box bounced off Luis Suarez and found its way Neymar who fired the ball into the net after 12 minutes. The second goal came after 35 minutes when Messi appeared to use his hand to control a ball and his mazy run into the box, saw him provide the pass to Suarez who scored his second league goal in 10 games. Jesus Gamez earned a penalty for Atletico, after he fell under a challenge in the box from Messi, and Mario Mandzukic put the ball straight down the middle of the goal in the 57th minute to reduce their deficit. Messi settled the game as a contest when he pounced on a ball in the box to score Barcelona's third with three minutes left in normal time.
The SEVEN reasons why Lionel Messi could make £200MILLION Chelsea move: 1) There are suggestions the Argentine is unhappy with his pay packet at Barcelona. He signed a new contract in May that earns him £16m a year after tax - but his great rival Cristiano Ronaldo earns £19m a year at Real Madrid. This has apparently caused friction between Messi's camp and Barca. 2) Messi is the all-time top goalscorer in La Liga and the Champions League. But he wants to play in the Premier League and turning 28 in June he could feel the timing is perfect for a move to England. 3) Barca have slapped an astonishing £200m price tag on their star man. But according to sources close to the player, Adidas (Chelsea club sponsor and kit supplier) are ready to help fund the deal in order to steal Messi from their big rivals Nike (who sponsor Barca). 4) Cesc Fabregas left the Nou Camp for Chelsea this summer and is trying to persuade his close friend, his future lies at Stamford Bridge too. 5) Messi wants to live in London.

Chelsea v Tottenham: Blues do not intimidate me, insists Mauricio Pochettino Mauricio Pochettino has urged Tottenham to take the bull by the horns at Chelsea tonight. Spurs have not beaten the Premier League leaders at Stamford Bridge since February 1990 but Pochettino gave no hint that he would adopt a cautious style against Jose Mourinho’s team. As coach of Espanyol, Pochettino took on Real Madrid and Barcelona at their peak, famously leading his side to a 2-1 victory at the Nou Camp in February 2009, shortly after he had taken charge of Barca’s unfashionable city rivals. “They do not intimidate me,” said Pochettino, who has led his team to back-to-back wins in the League for the first time since the start of the season. “I have full respect for sides like Chelsea and Manchester City but I always believe we can beat them. “This is my mentality. It is difficult to play against sides of this quality but always, you need to believe you can win. That is what we want to show.” As Tottenham appr ...
Lionel Messi © Reuters Images Barcelona forward Lionel Messi set a Champions League scoring record of 74 goals when he netted a hat-trick in Tuesday's 4-0 Group F win at Apoel Nicosia. The Barca and Argentina captain surpassed the record of 71 he jointly held with former Real Madrid and Schalke 04 striker Raul when he put his side 2-0 ahead shortly before halftime. The 27-year-old added two more goals in the second half to complete his 31st career treble, his fifth in Europe's elite club competition and the first in which he has scored all three with his less-favoured right foot. "I am pleased to have achieved such a nice record in such a nice and important competition but the really important thing is the three points," Messi said in a television interview. His achievement is the latest milestone in a stellar career and comes three days after he broke the six decades-old La Liga scoring record with a hat-trick in Barca's 5-1 home win over Sevilla. Messi overhauled former Athletic Bilbao striker Telmo Za ...

If Lionel Messi becomes La Liga all time top scorer during El Clasico, game could be paused to celebrate!Lionel Messi has scored a whopping 249 La Liga goals. The record for most La Liga goals is currently held by Telmo Zarra, who notched 251 goals, predominantly for Athletic Bilbao, in the Spanish top flight. As it stands, it is simply a question of when Lionel Messi will break the La Liga all-time goal scoring record with Barcelona hosting Eibar at the Nou Camp next, followed by El Clasico at the Bernabeu in the following game. There is a very real chance that Messi will either arrive to the Real Madrid game as all-time La Liga top goal scorer, or even break the record against Los Blancos. The Spanish Football Association president discussed yesterday what should happen when Messi breaks the record. Javier Tebas told journalists, “It will be an important historic moment. Messi will deserve some form of tribute and if he surpasses the record of Zarra, we should pause to reflect on what will be such a h ...

Sport says the Croatia international has agreed personal terms with Barca, which still must thrash out a fee with Sevilla for their club captain. Barca see Rakitic as a replacement for the wantaway Cesc Fabregas, who has one foot inside Chelsea. Sevilla rate the midfielder at €20 million, though Barca are confident of talking down that valuation. While Rakitic's father has claimed rival interest from Real Madrid and Atletico, Barca intermediaries insist they're the only serious suitor for the Croat. Both Barca coach Luis Enrique and sports director Andoni Zubizarreta are united in bringing Rakitic to the Nou Camp for next season.!

PARKING THE BUS Chelsea had 31 percent against Athletic Madrid in possession playing away while Real Madrid had 28 percent possession against Bayern playing at their home. Now who parked the bus? The media has been silent which gives me the impression that it is all about Chelsea and we are the most talked about club in the world. Whilst Chelsea played away at a very difficult ground and came out with a very good point, football fans yet again tried to question Chelsea's approach. We played a game of our lives reminiscent of the game against Barca in 2012 semi finals at the Nou Camp. Against Athletic Madrid we played without Cech, Terry, Ivanovich, Eto and Hazard. How many teams can do that? Even Barca couldn't with Messi, Neymar etc at their own Nou Camp Ground. Real Madrid parading the best player on Earth CR7, Bale, Di Maria, Benzema. Alonzo, Modric etc could only gain 28 percent of possession on their own ground in Madrid. NOW WHO PARKED THE BUS? Not blaming Real Madrid for playing defensive football ...
Real Madrid could sign Lionel Messi, claims Hugo Sanchez. Barcelona are in danger of pushing superstar Lionel Messi into the hands of their biggest rivals Real Madrid, warns former La Liga star Hugo Sanchez. There are growing murmurs emerging from Camp Nou that Messi is no longer happy at the Catalan club after being carelessly looked after by the club's staff. Messi has struggled with injury this term and many believe the pressure on him to perform has been too great, leading to his discontent. Real Madrid legend, Sanchez, says that Barcelona are in a very vulnerable position this summer and could see bids coming in for the Argentine from a number of clubs - including Real Madrid. "Messi is not feeling valued highly enough by Barcelona with his contract and they must be careful." "If Barca are careless, I can see Real Madrid signing him." Transfers between the Nou Camp and the Bernabeu are understandably rare. The last player to do so was Javier Saviola, who swapped Catalonia for the Spanish capital in 2 ...
Top Clubs That Would End This Season Trophy-less 1. Manchester United - No Champions League for them next season too. 2. Liverpool - Mourinho would see to that on the 27th. 3.

And suddenly Real Madrid are third on the table Atleti on top. Am a passionate Barca and Liverpool fan and i would rather have los C waklaway with the trophy pane iyo yamunoti Real Madrid. And again we were treated to another Messi show as Barca took all three points at the Nou Camp
Real Madrid and Barcelona clash in a Clasico encounter with much more than just pride on the line as the race for the Primera Liga crown enters the final stretch. It was Barca who earned bragging rights in the reverse fixture in October as Neymar and Alexis Sanchez secured a 2-1 win at the Nou Camp, although it is the Galacticos in the driving seat this weekend as they sit three points clear at the top of the standings. In fact, Carlo Ancelotti's men enjoy a four-point lead over the Catalans, who are third in the table and one point below Atletico Madrid, who they will face in the Champions League quarter-finals. A Madrid win would, therefore, hoist the Spanish giants seven points above the defending champions and six clear of Atletico, who are only in action 24 hours later, against Real Betis. On the team news front, the hosts, who come up against Borussia Dortmund in the last-eight of the European Cup, are unlikely to have Karim Benzema available this weekend as he struggles with a hamstring strain.

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 ...

'I can see City winning!' Mourinho's not impressed by the current Barcelona team Jose Mourinho has rubbished the Barcelona side about to face Manchester City as the Nou Camp giants' worst "for many, many years." Chelsea boss Mourinho gives City a chance of overcoming the Spanish superpower in their Champions League last-16 tie, which begins at the Etihad on Tuesday night, and sided with Premier League title rival Manuel Pellegrini. Mourinho, a former member of Barca's coaching staff and ex-boss of their bitter rivals Real Madrid, said in an interview with ITV: "Of course, by history, Barcelona is the favourite, but this Barcelona, this season, is showing that it is not the same in previous years. "Of course they have Messi, he is special, and they have more than him. "But I think this is the worst Barcelona of many, many years - so City have a chance." Barcelona are top of La Liga, albeit only on goal difference, and into the final of Spain's Copa Del Rey. Manchester City vs Barcelona: Probable teams MANC ...
Barcelona lost at home in the league for the first time since April 2012 as Valencia ended the league leaders' run of 25 successive wins at the Nou Camp. Alexis Sanchez gave Barca the lead before Dani Parejo swept home and Pablo Piatti headed in for the visitors. Lionel Messi made it 2-2 from the penalty spot after Ricardo Costa had handled, but Valencia grabbed a famous win when Paco Alcacer slotted in. The La Liga champions were also reduced to 10 men when Jordi Alba was sent off. The former Valencia player was dismissed for a body-check on Sofiane Feghouli 13 minutes from time. Defeat was Barcelona's first at home in the league since a 2-1 loss to Real Madrid in April 2012. "I would say to them [the Barcelona players that everything continues, that we may lose the leadership of the league, but that we will still continue to fight," said Barcelona manager Gerardo Martino.

Barcelona have distanced themselves from reports linking them with a move for Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero. The Argentinian, who joined City from Atletico Madridin 2011, has consistently been touted for a return to Spain since arriving at the Etihad Stadium. Aguero has been in stunning form so far this season, firing 17 goals in 18 matches in all competitions, and both Real Madrid and Barcelona have been tipped to bid for him next year. However Josep Bartomeu, vice-president of the Nou Camp team, insists his side have not sounded out Aguero and claims the forward is happy in Manchester. He told El Mundo Deportivo: "No, we have not had any contact with him (Aguero). I can say that it is an untruth. I do not know nothing, but I do not think Aguero wants to leave Manchester City."
Outspoken agent Francois Gallardo has revealed Real Madrid made an attempt to sign Barcelona star Lionel Messi last summer. Speaking on Punto Pelota, Gallardo, who has connections with Karim Benzema's management team, says Real and kit sponsors adidas came together to bid for Messi in the offseason. The approach was turned down by Barca, but Real will try again for Messi at the end of this season. Chelsea and Bayern Munich are also interested and like Real, will attempt to prise the Argentine away from the Nou Camp next summer. Gallardo, who was involved in the negotiations, is adamant that "Messi is seriously thinking about leaving Barca in the near future".
Gareth Bale, the world's most expensive player, is dubbed 'irrelevant', 'a mistake' and 'the worst player' in the Real Madrid side that lost 2-1 to Barcelona on Saturday Gareth Bale has been labelled 'a mistake' and 'irrelevant' by the Spanish press after being substituted during Real Madrid’s 2-1 defeat by Barcelona at the Nou Camp on Saturday. The world’s most expensive player, whose start to life at the Bernabeu has stuttered following a string of injuries, was replaced after 61 minutes on his Clasico debut having failed to make a telling impact in the Real attack. In contrast, Barcelona's Neymar opened the scoring in his first match against Real Madrid and was instrumental throughout a heated contest. In contrast, Bale’s most telling contribution of the night were the two shots that passed harmlessly over Victor Valdes’s bar and a booking picked up just before half-time. Barcelona’s sports daily El Mundo dismissed the Welshman as “irrelevant,” while the Madrid-based El Pais went further, ...
The 167th La Liga 'Clasico' between Barcelona and Real Madrid at the Nou Camp on Saturday could be the ideal stage for Gareth Bale and Neymar to show they are worth a combined price tag of almost £135 million. Or, as is more likely, one of the most intense rivalries in football and a match watched by hundreds of millions around the world will again showcase the peerless talents of Barca's Argentine World Player of the Year Lionel Messi and Real's Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo. However, fans in Britain will have to be content with 75 minutes of fun and frolics - archaic scheduling laws mean that no live football can be shown on UK TV between 2:45pm and 5:15 pm, as it clashes with the standard 3pm fixture list; as such, viewers on Sky Sports will see their coverage begin 15 minutes after kick-off.

Barca's former coach is continuing his treatment from cancer, which was diagnosed two years ago and forced him to step down as coach at the beginning of this season.

PELLEGRIN TALKS ABOUT TODAY'S CLASH WITH CHAMPIONS Bayern Munich = Guardiola brings Bayern, the German and European Champions, to the Etihad Stadium in the second round of fixtures in Group D this week. Pellegrini is still to get the better of the Former Barcelona boss, with whom he clashed regularly in Spain. Barcelona beat Pellegrini's Real Madrid twice during the 2009-10 season, when the Catalans pipped the Bernabeu giants to the title. With Malaga, Pellegrini lost all four games against Barca between 2010 and 2012. His only inkling of success in a Guardiola battle was a 3-3 draw at the Nou Camp with Villarreal in 2009. Now in charge at City, Pellegrini has a much more impressive squad at his disposal but his only concern is eking three points out of them and not finally outmanoeuvring Guardiola. The Chilean said: "It's always about the players. I don't play against Pep Guardiola. It is Bayern against Manchester City. "The key is always the performance of the important players. They must appear in impo ...
Messi sparkles, Chelsea shocked Lionel Messi hit a hat-trick as Barcelona began their Champions League campaign with a 4-0 win over Ajax on Wednesday but Jose Mourinho's Chelsea suffered a shock home defeat. Messi took his tally to 62 Champions League goals and became the first player to score more than four Champions League hat-tricks, while also netting his 24th such treble for Barca. A day after Cristiano Ronaldo hit three in Real Madrid's 6-1 thumping of Galatasaray, Messi reminded everyone who is still the four-time reigning Ballon d'Or winner. Despite boasting eight European Cup and Champions League crowns between them, Barcelona and Ajax had never met before their Group H encounter at the Nou Camp. And typically it was a dazzling display from Messi that got the 2009 and 2011 winners off to the ideal start. And the diminutive wizard dedicated the victory to Barca coach Gerard Martino, who will fly home to Argentina to attend his father's funeral. "It was a special game. It is a shame what has happen ...
Manchester United have defended manager David Moyes after fans criticised the club's late and limited transfer activity during the summer window. Marouane Fellaini's arrival from Everton was their only summer signing. "The club has demonstrated its commitment to David Moyes in the award of a six-year contract," said director of communications Phil Townsend. "Allowing him to shape the future Manchester United team is a long-term project not an eight-week panic." Fellaini's arrival came late on transfer deadline day, but the club failed with moves for Everton defender Leighton Baines, Athletic Bilbao midfielder Ander Herrera and Real Madrid left-back Fabio Coentrao. Moyes was also unsuccessful earlier in the summer with two bids for Barcelona players when former Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas chose to stay at the Nou Camp and midfielder Thiago Alacantara opted to join German side Bayern Munich.

On the back of that last report, and our earlier story that Barcelona are chasing Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny, I'm sure Gunners' fans will be urging the Spanish side to make a move for Thiago Silva instead. 3. Also in Transfer Talk at the moment; Roy Keane & former employers Sunderland set for expensive legal battle (Irish Times), while Barcelona are hopeful of bringing Thiago Silva to the Nou Camp (Mundo Deportivo). 4. With the likes of Tottenham, Fulham, Liverpool and Chelsea all reportedly interested in a move for Wigan midfielder James McCarthy, the newly-relegated Championship outfit have placed a huge £20 million price tag ...
Schalke To Beat Liverpool To Signing Of Spanish Forward Bundesliga outfit seen loan move for Barcelona starlet. Bundesliga side Schalke could beat Liverpool to the signing of Barcelona starlet Cristian Tello, as they look to bring the Spaniard in on loan next season, according to Inside Futbol. The 21-year-old is highly rated at the Nou Camp, but has not managed to establish himself as a regular starter due to immense competition for places at the club. This has seen him emerge as a target for Premier League side Liverpool as he is keen to get more first-team football. Liverpool are on the lookout for strikers this summer as they face the very real prospect of Luis Suarez leaving the club for Real Madrid or Bayern Munich, and Tello could be available for as little as £8million due to a clause in his contract. However, Barca will be keen not to lose him, and will look to negotiate a loan move with Schalke to give him the first-team action he desires before returning to the Catalan giants next year. Schalk ...
Barcelona have broken the 100 points barrier with victory over Malaga. Champions Barcelona became only the second team in Primera Division history to reach the 100-point mark. Barca needed a win over Malaga to match the record-breaking 100-point haul Real Madrid managed last season and Tito Vilanova's men duly delivered. The game was as good as over inside the opening 16 minutes at the Nou Camp as Barca raced into a 3-0 lead through goals from David Villa, Cesc Fabregas and Martin Montoya. Andres Iniesta then added a fourth early in the second half for Barca's 115th league goal of the season - breaking the previous-best mark of 114 that the Catalan giants tallied last term.
DINHO TRANSFER UPDATES:- -Manchester United transfer target Claudio Marchisio is being linked with a €25million move to AS Monaco. -Manchester United could be forced to pay an inflated price for Cesc Fabregas, with Barcelona obliged to give Arsenal half the fee under the terms of his transfer to the Nou Camp. It means Barcelona would have to sell him for about £70million just to break even. -it would need an offer of at least £75m from Real Madrid to tempt hardball Spurs chairman Daniel Levy into contemplating selling his prize asset. -Luis Suarez looked to be on his way out of Anfield last night, following claims in Spain that Real Madrid had struck a £40million deal to take him to the Bernabeu. -We wouldn't sell unhappy Ronaldo for ONE BILLION EUROS, claim Real as United bid to bring him back -Everton manager search takes a twist as former Schalke boss Rangnick gets in on the act after Martinez talks -Di Canio snaps up Lazio defender Diakite on a free as he continues to rebuild Black Cats -City sig ...
Turkish referee Cuneyt Cakir caused controversy last night when he sent off Manchester United winger Nani in the Champions League tie against Real Madrid. United were 2-1 ahead on aggregate when Cakir deemed Nani's challenge on Alvaro Arbeloa to be a dangerous one. Come the full-time whistle, they were 3-2 down and out of the competition. Cakir has officiated games involving British teams before and history shows Nani is not the first player he has dismissed. Here, Press Association Sport looks at who else has been given an early bath by Cakir. MARIO BALOTELLI - Manchester City v DYNAMO KIEV, 2011 Italy striker Balotelli was branded as "stupid" by manager Roberto Mancini for a studs-up kick into the chest of Goran Popov, leaving Cakir with little choice but to send him off.

Cristiano Ronaldo is set to miss El Clasico — to keep him safe for the huge clash against Manchester United. Jose Mourinho will not risk his main man today because Real Madrid regard Tuesday’s Champions League return at Old Trafford as their biggest game this season. They need at least one goal after the 1-1 first-leg draw at the Bernabeu. With Real trailing Barcelona by 16 points in La Liga, Ronaldo is set to start on the bench this afternoon, though he may get a second-half run-out. Real travel to Manchester buzzing after beating Barca 3-1 in the midweek Copa Del Rey semi-final at the Nou Camp. Another win against shell-shocked Barcelona could send the Catalans into a tailspin — but Mourinho knows beating United is far more important given that La Liga is all but over. Forgotten man Kaka will start and he believes the Spanish giants will beat Barcelona again — and United. The Brazilian said: “Tuesday’s match gave us a lot of confidence to know we can achieve great results, be it at the Nou C ...
Yesterday's Copa Del Rey semi-final second leg, Nou Camp – Barcelona 1 (Alba 89) Real Madrid 3 (Ronaldo pen 13, 57, Varane 68) Cristiano Ronaldo starred as counter-attacking Real Madrid dismantled Barcelona 3-1 at the Nou Camp to reach the Copa Del Rey final, sealing a 4-2 victory over the two legs. Ronaldo scored a first-half penalty, then a second just before the hour to leave the Liga leaders with a huge task. And Raphael Varane, who struck in the first leg, added a header to all but kill off the tie. Barcelona dominated possession but were dominated everywhere else, with Lionel Messi conspicuous by his absence in a rare poor game. The hosts did add a super goal in the 89th minute, Jordi Alba tucking away Andres Iniesta’s through ball on the volley, but as well-taken as it was, it represented scant consolation. Real Madrid go into their 38th Copa Del Rey final. The final of the 2012-13 Copa Del Rey will be a capital affair in Spain, after Atletico Madrid booked their place against arch-city rivals ...
Backpass February 27 Part 1 Barcelona coach Jordi Roura has bemoaned his side's lack of "wisdom" as the Catalan club crashed out of the Copa Del Rey semi-finals at home to arch-rivals Real Madrid last night. The two sides headed into the second leg at the Nou Camp locked at 1-1, but led by two-goal hero Cristiano Ronaldo, Madrid cruised to a 3-1 victory and advanced to the final with a 4-2 aggregate score, ending Barcelona's hopes of retaining its title. But despite acknowledging Madrid's performance, Roura was left to rue what may have been, as his squad failed to stop the game-plan of its well-known enemy. QUESTION: Judging from last night's loss to Madrid, what would you say is Barcelona's biggest weakness?
Barcelona 1-3 Real Madrid Awesome display by Jose Mourinho's men. Cristiano Ronaldo hit TWO GOALS while Lionel Messi "went in flames". Milan are watching Barca while Sir Alex Ferguson was at Nou Camp to see Real Madrid. Hm, Different thoughts. ALOHA!

MADRID, Jan 6 (Reuters) - Leaders Barcelona kept up their relentless pace at the top of La Liga with a 4-0 thrashing of city rivals Espanyol and 10-man Real Madrid needed two goals from Cristiano Ronaldo to see off Real Sociedad 4-3 on Sunday. Argentina's Lionel Messi, favourite to collect a fourth world player of the year award on Monday, scored 91 goals for club and country in 2012 and started out where he left off with a clinical penalty at the Nou Camp. A double from Pedro and another from Xavi completed the scoring as the unbeaten Catalans racked up their 17th victory in 18 games to move on to 52 points. They are 11 points ahead of second-placed Atletico Madrid who were held to a 1-1 draw at Real Mallorca. Atletico dominated but struggled without suspended top scorer Radamel Falcao until Raul Garcia bundled in from close range in the 72nd minute but Kevin Garcia grabbed a scrappy equaliser for the hosts three minutes from time. Champions Real stayed 16 points adrift of Barca in third after a topsy-tu ...
Ha. It was the equivalent of scoring 3 for Real Madrid at the Nou Camp. No Tino Asprilla cartwheels that day!
News of the day Daniele De Rossi will not be sold in January despite the 29-year-old being linked with Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City. Monaco coach Claudio Ranieri has confirmed his desire to bring David Beckham, 37, to the Ligue 2 club. England striker Daniel Sturridge, 23, will choose Liverpool over Tottenham when he quits Chelsea next month. Chelsea are considering Bosnian midfielder Miralem Pjanic, 22, of Roma as a possible replacement for Frank Lampard. Tottenham and Arsenal have joined the list of British clubs watching disillusioned Barcelona striker David Villa, 31. Barcelona's record-breaking goalscorer Lionel Messi, 25, would now cost around £312m to sign after he agreed a new deal at the Nou Camp. Biggest news! Paris Saint-Germain are interested in signing Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo, 27, for £75m - and recruiting the club's manager Jose Mourinho. What do you guys think of this? Please like too! Cheers ~Beckham
Well, well, well. It looks as though the succession question for the hottest job in football may have been answered, and it's not pleasing news for Jose Mourinho. As revealed a few weeks ago by ESPN and others, a senior delegation from Old Trafford went to meet Pep Guardiola in New York, where he is currently enjoying a sabbatical, with the message that the job is effectively his to refuse. - Sir Alex defends Mourinho This is quite a turnaround from the narrative of recent years, which has seen Mourinho as the frontrunner to take over for Sir Alex Ferguson. Their chumminess has been notable, seen most recently in the ITV documentary, "Mourinho", where the Scot steadfastly refused to criticise some of the Real Madrid manager's worst excesses. There would be an unparalleled level of enmity between Mourinho and Guardiola were the Former Barcelona boss to beat him to the throne left vacant by Ferguson. Guardiola, after all, has already beaten him to one plumb position, taking charge at the Nou Camp even after ...
Vilanova: Messi has no limits Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova chose to focus on the brilliance of Lionel Messi after an entertaining 2-2 draw with Real Madrid in La Liga. Cristiano Ronaldo started and finished the scoring at the Nou Camp, with Messi also at the double - his second strike a stunning free-kick - to ensure honours ended even. "We do not know his limits," Vilanova said of the Argentina forward. "You should see how he trains every day - that urge he has to keep getting better. "I think we will never see another player like this. He is the best in the world by far." Vilanova added that Ronaldo would be "more recognised" if his career had not coincided with Messi's. As always between the arch rivals, tensions frequently looked in danger of boiling over. Visiting defender Pepe accused Andres Iniesta of "doing theatre" in a bid to win a second-half penalty and Madrid coach Jose Mourinho - who infamously poked a finger into the eye of Vilanova on the touchline last season when he was Pep Guardiola's ...
Real Madrid came away with a deserved point but failed to secure the victory they needed to trim the gap to leadBarcelona when the outstanding Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo each struck twice in an attritional 2-2 draw in La Liga on Sunday. A stuttering start by Jose Mourinho's Real side had left them eight points behind their great rivals after six matches, threatening to derail their title defence before it had even got off the ground. While they will take comfort from preventing Barca making it seven wins out of seven this term, they may feel they let slip an opportunity in the opening league 'Clasico' of the campaign after Ronaldo gave them a 23rd-minute lead in front of almost 100 000 fans packed into an electric Nou Camp arena. With millions more around the world watching the heavyweight clash, Messi levelled eight minutes later after a defensive lapse by Pepe and the Argentine World Player of the Year curled in a stunning free kick just after the hour to make it 2-1. Real were level within five ...

Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo stole the show as Real Madrid drew 2-2 at Barcelona in a thrilling Clasico at the Nou Camp in La Liga.
Mourinho: El Clásico is only worth three points.Jose Mourinho has tried to play down the significance of tomorrow's Clásico with Barcelona by reminding fans there are only three points at stake. The two teams have had contrasting fortunes in La Liga so far this season. Leaders Barça boast a 100 per cent record and are already eight points better off than defending champions Madrid after six matches. However, Mourinho's men have shown signs of turning a corner recently, not least with a 4-1 rout of Ajax in the Champions League in midweek. And the Portuguese coach admits their league ambitions far outweigh those of simply beating their bitter rivals at the Nou Camp. "Real Madrid-Barça is a match that we love to play. They probably do too," he told American channel beIN Sport TV. "That means that a Clásico is a little more than other normal league matches. Football lovers all over the world stop when Barcelona play against Real Madrid. The number of viewers for the last Spanish Supercopa showed that the ...
El Clasico is one of the most watched football matches in the world. Barcelona and Real Madrid meet at the Nou Camp for the first league meeting between the sides of the season. Here are five key battles to look out for. Gerard Pique v Gonzalo Higuain Following the news that Carlos Puyol will miss the El Classico through injury, Gerard Pique is going to be tasked with leading the Barcelona defence. Pique has the height and strength needed to dominate a player like Higuain who may be favoured as the main Real Madrid striker owing to the innovative runs he makes off the ball. If Pique can keep Higuain quiet then he will go a long way to helping Barca win the match. Dani Alves v Cristiano Ronaldo Alves played on the right during the match with Benfica and this is the area that Ronaldo often occupies for Real Madrid. Ronaldo will be making runs constantly down the wing and cutting inside to find more room. If Alves can keep the wide areas quiet then it will be easier for the Barcelona defence to deal with Ron ...
Barcelona president Rosell won't rule out shock move for Real Madrid's Ramos.Barcelona president Sandro Rosell admits they're monitoring Sergio Ramos' situation at Real Madrid. The defender is struggling in his relationship with Real coach Jose Mourinho and with Barca in need of a centre-half signing, the prospect of a sensational move to the Nou Camp isn't being ruled out. "The signing of Sergio Ramos? Never say never," Rosell told ESPN. "But I do not think (it will happen)."
Real Madrid should give partial credit to Barcelona's goalkeeper Victor Valdes for that Spanish Super Cup. His blunder in the first leg at the Nou Camp (which allowed Real to be down only 3-2 instead of 3-1) really came back to bite his team in the second leg.
Javier Mascherano has defended teammate Victor Valdes after the Barcelona goalkeeper's mistake gifted Real Madrid a late goal in Barca's 3-2 Spanish Super Cup first leg victory at the Nou Camp on Thursday. "It was a passage of play that only the Barca keeper can do and this style is why Barca is so recognisable. We prefer to make the odd...

Do u know: Chelsea are now unbeaten in their last four matches at the Nou Camp, having drawn all of them. Lionel Messi remains without a goal against Chelsea in eight matches, the most games he has played against a single opponent without a goal. Fernando Torres becomes the 19th player in Champions League history to score against Real Madrid and Barca. He is the first Spaniard to do so.
We shall start witnessing the best part of EURO 2012 to day with Portugal taking Czech Republic, a team with the best midfield (Czech Republic) Vs a side with the best wings (Portugal). The match will be won on minor mistakes resulting from defense lapses. Christiano Ronaldo must stand out of the crowd like he did against Netherlands and take the team to the semi final at least if he wants to to stand a chance of beating or being first runner up to Lionel Messi in the World Player of the year crown late this year. Should he fail to do that, Messi is very automatic because breaking the 65 year goal scoring record for Barcelona, being the first youngest player to score 50 goals in any league in Europe, scoring in every major trophy finals and the recent hart trick against their South American fiance rivals Brazil, give home almost every guarantee to retain his prize for the fourth year in a raw.

Lionel Messi broke the 39-year record for most goals in a single season in a major European league, scoring for the 68th time with a hat- trick on Wednesday to eclipse former Bayern Munich striker Gerd Mueller. The Barcelona forward set the mark with his third goal in the 4-1 victory over Malaga in the Spanish league at the Nou Camp, surpassing the 67-goal mark Mueller set for Bayern during the 1972-73 season. Andres Iniesta sent Messi clear into Malaga's half, and the Argentina forward chipped on-rushing goalkeeper Carlos Kameni before slotting the ball into the net to set the record. Messi's ninth hat-trick of the season took his league total to 46 goals, also a record and two more than Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portugal forward scored in Real Madrid's 3-0 win at Athletic Bilbao later Wednesday that secured the league title for Barca's arch-rivals. He has scored 58 this season. Messi's 34th-minute spot kick allowed him to match the 66-goal tallies by Pele for Brazilian club Santos in 1958 and Ferenc Deak f ...

Secondly If RealMadrid want Another Triumph in europe and the world Then the Gaffer Who named himself the Special one Should- what? TRUST HIS players- because special beings do special things Read this -I've already explained how a lack of rotation has cost Real Madrid this year's Champions League. Playing Bayern Munich twice in a week with a tie in between at the Nou Camp is going to take its toll on even the most confident group of players. Utilising players like Hamit Altintop, Jose Callejon and Nuri Sahin needs to become the norm. If not, Jose Mourinho needs to supplement the Madrid squad with players he does have faith in. Part of Madrid's success in the league this season has been their ability to remain at the top of their playing ability, despite rotations in certain areas of the pitch. Bringing players in like Sahin needs to be done to ensure maximum output until the end of the season. After all, he was good enough to be scouted and purchased, so why is he not good enough to be an important part ...
FIVE OF THE BEST PEP'S BEST REAL MADRID 2 BARCELONA 6 (Primera Division - May 2, 2009) Barcelona took a giant step towards winning the Primera Division title in Guardiola's first season at the helm by crushing arch rivals and nearest challengers Real Madrid in stunning fashion at the Bernabeu. Thierry Henry and Lionel Messi both netted braces while Carles Puyol and Gerard Pique were also on the scoresheet as the treble-chasing visitors inflicted a first league defeat on in-form Madrid since beating the then champions at the Nou Camp in December. Madrid had picked up 52 points from a possible 54 since that match, but this defeat left them seven points adrift of Barca with only four games remaining.

GUARDIOLA COACHING CAREER UNDER SCRUTINY Since being appointed as manager of Barcelona in 2008, Pep Guardiola has won 13 trophies: two Champions League crowns, three La Liga trophies, one Copa Del Rey, three Supercopas, two Uefa Super Cups and two Fifa Club World Cups.
