6 star Real Madrid keep Barca waiting for title

Posted on May 09, 2013 by admin

There is still almost ho hope that Real Madrid can defend the Spanish Primera Liga title, but at least the players made sure that Barcelona would have to earn it. Anything less than a victory against Malaga at the Bernabeu last night would have meant the Catalan club sealing the league without playing.

It could have been a difficult night for Madrid, with feeling running high, especially against Jose Mourinho. The rumours of discordance in the dressing room and the fact that Malaga were desperate for points in their bid for Champions League football next season made it a potentially awkward encounter, but everything turned out great. (see highlights below)

Albiol gave Madrid the lead in the third minute and Santa Cruz levelled after 15. Then Sanchez saw red and Madrid took control. Ronaldo and Ozil scored before Antunes gave the visitors a lifeline in the 36th minute. They were fighting against the tide, though, and Benzema retored the two goal cushion on the stroke of halftime.

Modric had another superb game and capped with a great strike in the second half. Malaga’s misery was completed with another red card for Demichelis and a late goal by Di Maria. .Barcelona now need to win at Atletico Madrid on Sunday to seal the title, while Real can focus on the Copa Del Reyes final in two weeks.
