Saying good night to my fellow Madridistas with a much more important message than winning a football match: Solidarity for those who are in need.
And a bit of CrisKa :o)
And we are still 8 points in lead. The world is still spinning.
* 46’ first warning shot Karim, beautiful pass from Kaká
* 50’ Karim down, but no penalty. OK decision
* 57’ van Nistelrooy in for Isco,
* 58’ Kaká-Benzema, who can’t get the ball
* 60’ nearly CrisKa goal. Caballero makes a brilliant save. Great shot Cris, super pass Kaká.
* Los Blancos keep on attacking
* 66’ Callejón in for Kaká
* 68’ Marcelo-Cristiano, cross in, but Benzema can’t reach
* 69’ Callejon heads a cross by Cristiano, goes wide
* 70’ What a chance for Benzema, too hasty after Özil’s excellent solo and pass
* second goal is in the air
* 77’ nice collective effort
* 84’ A pitch invader is escorted straight back off
* 84’ Granero in for Özil
* 84’ foul vs. Marcelo, should have been penalty
* 85’ Higuaín in for Benzema
* 87’ Pepe booked for kicking the ball out. Unnecessary!
* 89’ dangerous attack, Callejón’s finish blocked
* 90’ free-kick Málaga, some “discussions”
* 90+1 Goal Cazorla, great free-kick, no chance for Iker —> Entertaining match, some great chances missed. Punished with the 1:1. Now “only” 8 points ahead of Barcelona.
* 2’ first warning shot Karim
* 4’ Iker blocks Rodon’s shot
* 5’ good attempt Cristiano, shot hits the goalie
* 11’ foul vs. Lass, free-kick + rebound Özil
* 14’ Isco’s cross goes wide
* intense game-play from both sides
* 20’ Cristiano slips and clashes with Wellington, both on the ground
* 22’ both are back, nice gesture: Cristiano apologises
* 24’ Cristiano taken down, but no penalty. OK decision
* 27’ foul vs. Cristiano, no whistle. Wrong decision
* 28’ beautiful combination Cris-Karim, just a bit wide
* 31’ another harsh tackle Demichelis vs. Cristiano, his free-kick over the goal
* 35’ Gooooooooooooooooooooooooal Benzema !!! Header from inside the box after excellent dribbling and precise pass Cristiano
* 45’ Iker saves with difficulty —> Balanced first half with slight advantages for Los Blancos. Intense match. Beautiful goal. Looking forward to the second half.
Who will score tonight?
If Cristiano scores 2 goals, he will break another record:
100 goals in less than 100 La Liga appearances.
He has 98 goals in 89 La Liga matches now.
As Malaga is one of his favourite “victims”, this seems quite realistic.
But most important is taking 3 points, may score whoever has the opportunity.
