Real Madrid’s beating of Barcelona gives confidence before Man Utd match [with highlights]

Posted on February 27, 2013 by admin

It was not just the fact that Real Madrid beat Barcelona at their own ground, but the comprehensive manner in which the victory was achieved that will have sent a stark warning to Manchester United. The situations are very similar. Both are two legged affairs, with the first leg at the Bernabeau ending all square at 1-1. If Real Madrid can get somewhere near the level of performance they produced at the Camp Nou last night, then United are going to struggle to live with them.

Jose Mourinho was clearly delighted and looked like he had just won the jackpot at Mansion Casino.com! His game plan was perfect, and his players executed it brilliantly. Nobody hid, and everyone had an excellent game. The defence was organised and alert and snuffed out any sign of danger from Barcelona, while young Varane rose brilliantly to head in the third goal. Messi was kept very quiet, and when he did manage a shot, Diego Lopez was ready for him. Ronaldo tormented the Barcelona defence, and made Pique look like he was running in treacle when he brought the Portuguese star down for the early penalty.

The work rate and application of the players was fantastic and deservedly earned Madrid the biggest win away to Barcelona since a 5-1 thrashing back in 1967, 55 years ago. Mourinho may not be very popular with the Madrid fans, but they will never forget him after this result. The game was over as a contest long before Jordi Alba scored for Barca in the final minute.
