Clash of the Titans – Los Merengues triunfan en el Bernabéu

You guys know I love sports, especially wrestling, slamball, basketball and soccer.

Yesterday, the first leg of the Champions League semi-finals between Real Madrid and Bayern Münich took place.

Now, I don’t feel like writing a report, because I don’t think I’m qualified to do that.

Anyway, I do want to comment a bit and… Well, celebrate.

I’m a Madridista at heart, can’t help it =P

So, last night wasn’t the best Real-Bayern confrontation we’ve seen, at least in my opinion.

I mean, I’m happy about the outcome, and I can say I’m satisfied with how the guys handled things but… We could have done more.

Both teams were not at their best yesterday.

Of course, when it comes to injuries, Real Madrid had plenty of them; we were lucky to have Cristiano back in time, even if he couldn’t obviously stay on the field for 90 minutes.

Benzema did well.

I’m not particularly fond of him, but he was indeed the goal scorer of the night, so… Thanks for doing a good job, Karim.

Bale, on the other hand – whom I really like and respect as a person and as an athlete – didn’t shine as bright as he did in the Copa Del Rey final.

I was hoping for a last-minute goal to give the team the tranquility they need to have for the Münich face-off, but it never came.

Anyway, as I said before, the team did what they needed to do, and victory is (and hopefully will continue to be) ours.

After all, we have some of the best players in the world (Team Cristiano, here), and the best goalkeeper we could ever wish for.

Looking forward to raise the European Cup for the 10th time, guys!

Let’s do this!

¡Hala Madrid!

P.S. Tonight another great match is scheduled, Europa League semi-finals Benfica – Juventus.

I really hope we can win this, the finals will be in Turin, in our own stadium 😉

……

For those who feel confused about my comments: I’m Italian, and my favorite team has always been Juventus. However, growing up I started following La Liga and The Premier League, so I also have a Spanish and an English favorite team: Real Madrid and Manchester United.

So, yeah, my heart as a soccer fan is divided into 3 parts.
