Real Madrid vs. Elche preview – Ronaldo red card decision could be costly

Posted on February 22, 2014 by admin

Real Madrid will host lowly Elche at the Santiago Bernabeu, but the result is not as straighforward as you would think. For one thing, Carlo Ancelotti has had his preparations for today’s game disrupted by a baffling decision by the panel set up to make rulings on all sorts of disciplinary cases.

The Italian manager had expected them to decide this morning that the three match ban given to Ronaldo for the slightest of touches on the captain of Bilbao a couple of weeks ago was too harsh. So Ancelotti had prepared for the game with Ronaldo in the team, but the three game ban was upheld.

Benzema on target to break his Real Madrid goals record

Posted on February 18, 2014 by admin

Ever since Karim Benzema moved to Real Madrid from Lyon in the summer of 2009, he has had to share the central striking duties with Gonzalo Higuain. Until this season, that is, when Carlo Ancelotti decided it had to be one or the other to get the best from them.

For a while in the early stages of the season, the manager seemed to have made a big mistake, as the French striker struggled for goals, form and confidence, but all three are flowing now. Maybe the court case was preying on his mind or he just needed to get used to being the main man, but he is certainly producing the goods now.

Real Madrid players reveal much happier life under Ancelotti

Posted on February 17, 2014 by admin

It remains to be seen, of course, if Real Madrid will win any trophies in their first season under Carlo Ancelotti, but it certainly seems like a much happier and more relaxed club. After the strain, tension and discord that characterised the reign of Jose Mourinho, the fans, players and media are all mightily relieved about that.

Mourinho seems to have embarked on another spell of rabble rousing back in England, getting into spiteful arguments with rival managers, players, officials and anyone who crosses his path, but Ancelotti is almost the opposite. A lot of players liked Mourinho because he was so determined to win, but it came at a price.

Real Madrid ready for Atletico backlash in Copa Del Rey

Posted on February 11, 2014 by admin

Real Madrid are in a great position in the Copa Del Rey. They are 3-0 up from the first leg at the Santiago Bernabeu and that would usually be enough to think that a place in the final was just a formality, but that is not the case tonight.

Because the opponents are Atletico Madrid and Ancelotti and his players are expecting a tough night. Not only are Atletico fierce city rivals, but there home crown always makes a trip to the Vicente Calderon a difficult one and they will be especially fired up tonight, as will Diego Simeone and his players.

Bale inspires Real Madrid to top of La Liga

Posted on February 09, 2014 by admin

The game this weekend was causing a certain amount of concern for Real Madrid and their fans. Despite it being a home game, the visit of an in-form Villareal and the absence of star man Cristiano Ronaldo made it look like it was going to be a tough one, but Garteh Bale was back from injury and the Welshman inspired his team mates to a vital victory which moves Real Madrid to the top of La Liga.

Real Madrid boss asures fans Bale is NOT injured and WILL face Villareal

Posted on February 07, 2014 by admin

There have been some real concerns among Real Madrid fans and some sections of the Spanish media this week. Following the decision of the football authorities to uphold the red card shown to Cristiano Ronaldo last weekend, this weekend’s La Liga clash with Villareal was looking like a tough one.

Gareth Bale has missed the last three games with injury, after suffering a painful kick to his privates, but he should have been back by now and there have been suggestions that the talented Welshman had suffered a recurrence of the calf problem that was dogging him earlier in the season.

Pique and Ancelotti back Real Madrid star over sending off

Carlo Ancelotti has spoken to the press today ahead of the Real Madrid vs. Atletico Madrid semi-final first leg of the Copa Del Rey. The Italian manager is sweating on the complaints committee who are due to decide on whether the ban for Cristiano Ronaldo will be repealed and, if not, how long it will be.

It could even be extended, after the Portuguese Ballon D’Or winner was reported by the match referee for an offensive gesture towards the fourth official as he left the pitch. Ronaldo slapped his cheek a couple of times, which seems to be taken as referring to oral sex and players who have been pulled up for this before have been handed down extra bans of up to four games.

Real Madrid could really suffer for Ronaldo red card

Posted on February 03, 2014 by admin

I am sure that Real Madrid will be appealing whatever suspension is handed out to Cristiano Ronaldo for his red card yesterday during the frustrating 1-1 draw away to Athletic Bilbao. The punishment of losing the best player in the world was bad enough, ultimately meaning that Madrid missed a great chance to go above great rivals Barcelona in La Liga.

But if Ronaldo is now banned for three games, which he could well be because it was a straight red, it will mean he misses both legs of the Copa Del Rey semi-final against city rivals and new league leaders Atletico Madrid. There is also a tricky looking La Liuga game against 5th placed Villareal to consider.

Real Madrid is a team packed full of world class talent. Involved in a three-way battle for top spot in La Liga with arch rivals Barcelona and Atlético Madrid, they will be hoping that those world class players can fire them to the title. They are also the most successful club of all time in the UEFA Champions’ League or European Cup equivalent, with nine trophies. If they wish to win the competition and the magical ‘tenth’ trophy this season, then they will need more than just everybody playing well.

BANG goes Bale for Real Madrid with another injury KO

Posted on January 30, 2014 by admin

Real Madrid face a crucial weekend in La Liga after fighting back brilliantly to move to within a point of league leaders Barcelona and Atletico Madrid. Ancelotti’s men have really put the pressure on the front runners and have been building up to some ominously good form, so to get another injury setback to the new star Gareth Bale is a real blow.

According to Spanish news outlet AS, the Welshman is certain to miss this weekend’s away game at Athletic Bilbao, which already promised to give Real Madrid a stern test, especially as we are the last of the top three to play. Barcelona are at home to Valencia on Saturday while Atletico have a home game against Real Sociedad eartlier on Sunday.
