Real Madrid vs Barcelona Title Race

Real Madrid vs Barcelona Title Race

Real Madrid vs BarcelonaTook only two weeks for the first of the two Spanish giants to drop points – It was Barcelona, who managed to squander a comfortable 2-0 away lead against Real Sociedad to a 2-2 finish. Meanwhile, in Madrid, Getafe didn’t make it easy for Jose Mourinho’s side, but Real were too good, as expected, en route to a 4-2 victory.

Karim Benzema opened the scoring early and was also the one to put the game beyond doubt (for the first time), grabbing the brace with one fantastic goal (the first) and a second one after a brilliant long pass from Angel Di Maria and terrible goalkeeping from Getafe’s Miguel Moya. Crisitano Ronaldo converted the penalty kick he achieved himself (a foul outside the box actually), making it 4 league goals for the Portougese mega scorer already.

The worst news from this day for Barcelona weren’t the loss of points. They had an early home defeat last season against Hercules. That didn’t matter in the end. Nothing really matters until Barcelona and Real Madrid play each other. But the Alexis Sanchez injury, a possible torn muscle, is very bad news for a team already suffering from quite a few injuries.

Lionel Messi had a rare start on the bench, and came in too late apparently. Barcelona started comfortably, getting the 2-0 lead in the 11th minute already through Cesc Fabregas and Xavi. Life seemed to be going through its regular course. Well, two minutes of madness in the second half, meaning terrible defending from Barcelona, gave Imanol Agirretxe and Antoine Griezmann a rare chance to upset the European Champions. The incredible 74-26 stat line in terms of possession, in favor of Barcelona, meant nothing this time.
