Barcelona Real Madrid

Barcelona Real Madrid, That’s half-time: Back in 10 minutes. Right. Stan writes: “I know like me you’re a Leeds fan and are used to scintillating footy day in day out but you’re seriously underplaying this match. It’s flipping outstanding. The tiki takaing before Xavi’ s slide rule pass (min 35) was unbelievable. That would have been the greatest goal scored since Mel Sterland and Lee Chapman’s day.” Sorry if that how it’s coming across.
It’s been a fine game. Henry Buckle Loveless takes issue with a part of that point: “Another Barcelona MBM, another 20 uses of the term ‘slide-rule’. How old are your readers?” Justin Kavanagh has been watching Cristiano: “The sour face on Ronaldo when his nemesis scored was priceless. I think he might just take his ball and go home at half-time. The contrast with the class of Messi – even when he loses – couldn’t be any sharper. He is a big, sad child.” Rai Skrupskis takes humorous issue with “Ineffable” Pepe: “I can think of an F word for Pepe.” And one for Alves’s goal. He ineffably larruped it.
GOAL!! Barça 2-0 Real Madrid (Dani Alves)Free kick on the left of the box, taken by Xavi. Hits Diarra in the wall and ricochets off to the right-hand side of the area where Dani Alves runs on to it and lashes it first time into the top right-hand corner of the goal.
45 min: Lassana Diarra chops down Messi. He’s already on a card. The referee doersn’t send him off. Barça’s players go berserk at the referee’s decision. Casillas pokes his nose in, shoving Busquets and he gets booked.
44 min: Messi is booked for clattering Pepe on the calf. Huge cheer from the home fans. Pepe does three roly-poly revolutions.
GOAL!! Barcelona 1-0 Real Madrid (Pedro) Brilliant movement from Messi, darting from right infield, opening his body to poke a pass between Ramos and Xabi Alonso to the left of the penalty area where Pedro advances a yard and finishes with a sharp shot.
41 min: Barça have looked rattled at the back at times this half and Ronaldo is playing very well, linking up with Ozil. Barça are being harried in midfield but they still manage to make themselves space. Pique and Busquets, though, sandwich Ronaldo and Real have a free kick in their own haldf which Ramos takes quickly, from the wrong spot, trying to get Messi booked for not retreating.
