Cristiano Ronaldo – 3rd in goals scored!

During the Real Madrid vs. Schalke 04 champions League match, Cristiano Ronaldo scored the first goal of the match for RM. It was an awesome header and put him in 3rd for all-time leading goals for the club. Now at 290 goals, I see Ronaldo continuing his climb to the top of that list!

Real Madrid training today

Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez and Sergio Ramos both battling for the ball as Real Madrid gets some training in today prior to their match tomorrow vs Sevilla. They easily beat Real Sociedad 4-1 on Saturday so tomorrow’s match should be more of a challenge. Don’t miss the Madrid derby this Saturday against Atletico–it should be a great game!

This Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona match had everything!

Wow!! Yesterday’s Copa del Rey soccer match between Atletico Madrid and Barcelona was awesome and intense! Barca ended up defeating Atletico 3-2 (4-2 aggregate) to advance to the Copa semi-finals, but it was a fun as well as frustrating match to watch. Fernando Torres had another amazing goal in the first minute to put Atletico ahead early and the drama continued from there. The match was very physical which led to some missed calls by the ref and some questionable calls and even a shoe thrown by a player that almost hit a linesman! Having to work a match like that, the ref should probably get paid double what he normally gets paid. lol
