Barcelona Real Madrid
April 16, 2011 by staff
Barcelona Real Madrid, In Spain, across Europe, in fact anywhere in the world where children use their feet, barefoot or otherwise, to hit a ball around the dirt patches or fields of grass, which is, literally, in all parts, is known simply as El Cl? Sico.
Barcelona, best team in the world, against Real Madrid, the most expensive in the world. Sumptuous feast of football. And we are invited to reattach a four-course over 18 days. Today the League fixture at the Bernabeu (1400, GolTV) can be seen as an instructive prelude next two Champions League ties semifinals (Apr. 27, May 3) and the Copa del Rey final (April 20, Valencia).
Currently, eight points, all-but-impossible for the team of Jose Mourinho to reform the club by the 32 Th league title, even if they win today. Psychologically, however, a sixth straight loss to rival Catalan, especially at home, could prove disastrous for Real Madrid in the other objectives.
There is only so much an ego-bruising even one as expansive as Mourinho can take.
This “Who’s yo ‘daddy?” domain reached its apex in a wild score 5-0 November at the Camp Nou, Barcelona’s night just kept ladling in the domain.
“They play good football, of course, but what we do,”Madrid talisman Cristiano Ronaldo told Uefa.com.” We feel good, both physically and mentally. I hope we will come out on top in these games against them.
“We believe that it is possible for us to beat them. We’re having a good run and feel confident.”
“The team that makes fewer mistakes will reach the final,” Ronaldo added. “I hope its Real Madrid.”
Hope is essential when facing Barcelona. Often prayer, too.
Pep Guardiola’s team is the establishment of large new horizons for the attractive football. His familiarity with others. The narrowness of their mutual relations. The Tippy-Tappy Papercut effect on a defense. They are so distinctive and delicious to the eye, as a design of Antonio Gaud?
Highlighted by Lionel Messi intoxicating runs and incisive passing invisive, intricate engines two midfield, Xavi and Andres Iniesta, Catalans, when fully healthy, are also blessed with the objective value of the poaching of David Villa, the imposing presence of the mountain man of Carlos Puyol and Gerard Pique in central defense, and unappreciated Victor Valdes in the sticks.
Skin after being -1 on aggregate in the Champions League quarterfinal this week, Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp praised the club as the best club team I had seen in years. It’s hard to argue with that statement in evidence so far.
Real enters the shock of a series of good results, conceding just four goals in 13 matches in all competitions. Neither Eric Abidal Puyol not is available at the club’s back four. Which should make for a great occasion.
Then, of course, is the personal duel between the main producers of the Spanish league goal in two: Messi at 29, Ronaldo 28.
Both men to the big time are fascinating contrasts, however, Argentine and Portuguese. Messi: small, unattractive. Ghosting past defenders with short steps, interrupted. Mount deals with momentum Beast. That jump Beatles haircut. Will track back and work for the team.
Cristiano Ronaldo: “Bold. Flaming. Potente. The curve at the free throws enough for David Beckham pea green with envy. The crosses mark dizzying run smoothly (and, negatively, the familiar image of him standing proudly, hands in the hips, in apparent displeasure, the bad habit of sitting sadly on the cover after being tackled, arms open in disbelief, lower lip trembling, looking like nothing so much as a spoiled child deprived of sweets).
While Guardiola has been characterized by massive accumulation confined to the first of this drama in four acts, Mourinho, predictably, could not wait to push them to the eye. “I will train with a team of 10 men who always send out one of my players when I play against Barcelona,”which threw the other day. Then it was on a vow of silence before the game, which, of course, you requesting holders Spain.
The special self-anointed can make news, even when silent. Only a year ago, a Mourinhoinspired upset Barca Inter Milan in the semifinal stage on the way to lift a curse Champions League, deep, inviting an attack wave after wave of red and blue striped before hitting over the counter. It was a nervous style, dangerous to use.
Unfortunately for Mourinho, this side of truth is not built the same way.
Do not park buses, run Lamborghinis.
The consequences today in the Champions League semi and the Copa del Rey final, if not the League itself, are clear. For Madrid and his followers, the idea of?? A seventh consecutive defeat to the Catalans is unthinkable.
All, 354 seats at the Bernabeu will be taken. A nation stops. Much of the world will pause to watch. The first of four classics in the next 18 days.
Barcelona vs Real. For fans of the game, just do not get any better than this. “They are human like us,”protested Ronaldo.” They are a great team, but they are from another planet.”
