New coach – new luck! It was a pleasure to watch los Merengues destroying Deportivo La Coruna in San Bernabeu. Gareth Bale run riot and scored a hattrick at Zinedin Zidanes debut as Real Madrid manager.
Goals: 1-0 K. Benzema (15.), 2-0 G. Bale (22.), 3-0 G. Bale (49.), 4-0 G. Bale (63.), 5-0 K. Benzema (90.+1)
The 3-1 victory of Real Madrid in the San Bernabeu Stadium was more difficult than expected. Thanks to a brace from Cristiano Ronaldo los Merengues earned all three points.
Lucas Vázquez netted the insurance goal for the Benitez team.
Being a Real Madrid Fan sometimes means a lot of suffering – this La Liga Season is an example therefor.
Once more los Merengues disappointed. This time against Villarreal.
It was a game with 2 very different halftimes. In the first Real Madrid was well asleep when los Submarinos went in front in the 8th minute of the match. Roberto Soldado made it 1:0 for the hosts.
In the second halftime Real was the dominating team – especially in the first 15 minutes. There were plenty of chances missed, especially from Benzema, Bale and Cristiano.
1-0 K. Benzema (4.), 2-0 K. Benzema (16.), 3-0 G. Bale (35.), 4-0 Cristiano Ronaldo (38.), 4-1 Alexis (70.)
For the first time since the 5th of April the trio BBC aka Bale, Benzema and Cristiano scored in the same match. BBC needed only 38 minutes to score 4 goals which was a delight to see after that awful week.
In the second half didn’t happen a lot as the Benitez side put the match on cruise control. Eventually Alexes scored the solitary goal for Getafe.
Angel Di Maria, former Real Madrid star, gave an interview for the French canal network “beIN Sport” while preparing for the clash with Brazil.
“Since I left los Merengues, they didn’t win anything. So, I belive I left at the perfect time in the best way.”
Angel Di Maria won not only “La Decima” with Real Madrid but also the UEFA Super Cup (2014), La Liga (2011/12), the Copa del Rey (2010/11 & 2013/14) and the Supercopa de Espana in 2012.
And yes, Di Maria is right. Since he left/was sold to Manchester United no titles were won anymore. And Di Maria is quite clear that it was not him who wanted to leave: “After winning ‘La Decima’, I thought of many years to come in Madrid, but … this is football.”
But as provocative the headline might apear, Angel Di Maria says he has lots of good memories of Madrid: His daughter was born in Spain and thats were they saved her life.
Cristiano Ronaldo brought Real Madrid ahead with a neat finish followed by some good work by youngstar Lucas Vazquez. No Real Madrid player has provided more assists than Lucas Vázquez in La Liga this season – three!
Than it was Danilo, whith his firts goal for los Merengues.
In the rest of the first 45 minutes it was Kaylor Navas who secured Real Madrid the lead, as the Celticos fiercley fought back but could not beat the Costa Rican international.
Real Madrid haven’t conceded a goal at the half time in the 12 games played in all competitions this season
Celta Vigo‘s afternoon went from bad to worse in the second half when Gustavo Cabral was sent off on 56 minutes.
Nevertheless Celta Vigo pulled one back on 85 minutes through a stunning strike by forward Nolito. Eduardo Berizzos side tried everything to make it level, but it was Marcelo who set the final point deep into injury time.
The galician side have finished their second best run without a defeat in La Liga (13 games).
The King is back! Cristiano Ronaldo finally started scoring again – and it was not one or two goals. CR7 scored FIVE goals! Can we call it a PENTA-Trick?
0-1 Ronaldo 7'
0-2 Ronaldo (p) 17'
0-3 Ronaldo 20'
0-4 Benzema 28'
0-5 Ronaldo 81′
0-6 Ronaldo 81′
IT ONLY COUNTS IF IT’S A GOLAZOOOOOOO!!!!
Los Merengues have been on fire in their first encounter in the Santiago Bernabeu. They scored 5 goals, one more beautiful as the other against Real Betis.
1-0 Gareth Bale (2.), 2-0 James Rodriguez (39.), 3-0 Karim Benzema (47.), 4-0 James Rodriguez (50.), 5-0 Gareth Bale (89.)
Keilor Navas defended a penalty.
Real Madrid started with: K. Navas, Sergio Ramos, Marcelo, Danilo, R. Varane, L. Modric, G. Bale, T. Kroos, J. Rodríguez, Cristiano Ronaldo, K. Benzema
Isco came on in the 53rd minute for Karim Benzema, Casemiro in the 64th for Toni Kroos and Mateo Kovacic for Luca Modric in the 75th minute.
Only negative point is that Cristiano did not score again. Cristiano Ronaldo has had more shots without scoring than any other La Liga player this season (Lionel Messi 11).
