Here are the 3 Lessons from El Clasico in light of Barcelona. Barca suffered a 3:1 defeat to Real Madrid at Bernabeu. Real Madrid emerged a better team thanks to Ancelloti having restored sanity and with Ronaldo’s current direction the team is so willing to assume the top spot.
The last night win ensured Real Madrid a point behind Barca.
Ref: Jesus Gil
Real Madrid: Casillas, Carvajal, Pepe, S.Ramos, Marcelo, Modric, Kroos, Isco, James, Benzema, Ronaldo
Barcelona: Bravo, Alves, Mascherano, Pique, Mathieu, Xavi, Busquets, Iniesta, Suarez, Messi, Neymar
- Media Influence
Messi and Neymar partnership and general understanding was flourishing. The Uruguay of course made some noise on the wing just few minutes into the game and it was that cross to the center that Neymar advantaged into a goal. Otherwise Suarez was a gamble and should just have been benched than create all the hype as if Barca needed a miracle to change the practice. Ancelloti on the other hand was securing and regrouping to focus the material to rewards.
- Picking on Pique Defenses
He has been sloppy for the past few games and its been sheer luck that Barca never conceited to a goal. With Benzema forceful technique around and a Ronaldo shine Pique fabled around to a fall. Of course he has assumed the master role of the defensive and has to grasp the coordination.
- Yellow Card Roundup
15 Minutes into the game unfortunately Neymar and Messi both went into the yellow book with a long time left to play. This took the characters toll as Neymar was not seen to push around later into the game. Ronaldo also received a booking for a stupid kick- its not hard to be Suarez after all. I bet he would have a similar critique. But of course the El Clasico never goes without a good yellow score card.
