Valverde definitely gets MOTM, but Modric and Kroos played so well especially with the buildup and beating the press
@Tucker Which one, the time Lewandowski dove to the ground hoping for a call or when Garcia clearly missed the ball a stomped on Rodrygo’s foot?
No one’s talking about that terrible pen call?
What press? Lol! Hala Madrid
My idol Tapindowski really choked on the chances today. But Valverde alongside Benzema and Vini JR destroyed my finished club VARcelona. Good luck in Europa League my Barca dogs 🙁
Great win and performance from the team. Concentration dropped slightly in the second half, but for the most part it was a well managed game. Great to see Benzema back in form and Rodrygo with his first Clasico goal. Onto the next game.
@Lilly Canel he stepped on his foot
@Lilly Canel you can’t step on somebody whether they have the ball or not. That’s a foul.
@DayOne i mean it’s very very clear that García stepped on his foot but I’m the one who doesn’t play football ok
He was offsides before he stops or leaves the ball behind or whatever because even he think he might be offside but in doing that he’s offsides and get steeped in and the ref ignores the offsides but gives the penalty which was Rodrygo getting stepped on after he is offsides goofy
Also, shoutout to Valverde and Kroos especially for a tremendous display. That was one of Kroos’ best individual display in the white shirt, he was even more physical and making more challenges than usual.
old but gold
I get what we were trying to do in the 2nd half, but it bothers me that we can never put teams away and just cruise the rest of the game.
In Madrid fashion, we made it a tighter game than it needed to be in the stretch. But in the end, we still got the 3 points which was the most important thing.
@Billy L’INTREPIDE I dont think it’s about getting the chance or not, if he wanted to he could. It’s the fact that he retired after the euro, and he also doesn’t know if he wants to continue or retire after his Madrid contract is up
Kroos was motm imo
Barca’s Defense is Garbage !!!!!! Best Money Can Buy !!!!!!💰💰💰💰💰💰
That goal from Valverde is beautiful!!!
@Tony found the Barca fan
Scored a few of them this season
@Adams Omede Don’t get me wrong. It was a great finish but it wasn’t like a screamer.
@Tony not ordinary, that shot had power
Real Madrid were absolutely great today! Deserved win. Barca looked lost most of the time except the last 10 minutes.
@Jose A I get you my man. I did not see the match against inter. All I’m saying is he hit the boots with the studs, so that seems like a pen. Maybe I’m wrong but I think the pen was right.
@safue its hard to especially when this season matters the most for us. Realistically i know this barca squad won’t really come into good form until next season if we can stick with xavi. I’ve also slowly been losing faith in xavi tho, his win rate is only 50% and lately he can only manage draws at best against big teams. Injuries shouldn’t slow this team down, we have considerable depth even if we lack some talent in the back line xavi should be able to make it work.
@Jose A Just let it go there is nothing we can do about the terrible refs but move on.
@Max Wick not a single Madrid player complained for a pen, nobody stopped the play except VAR, it wasn’t a clear and obvious error. We were robbed of another pen earlier in the game just like with Inter, even the espn commentators agreed.
@LeoAnzoTV go cry 🤡
It’s been over a decade for me and these games still get me up to watch this sport
@Prod. Kuwanzee didnt expect to see u here, i love your beats btw dawg
Deadass 😂 since I was a kid kid
Dani Carvajal’s contributions are underrated. He was the seed for so much momentum.
Madrid was really good, Fati changed the game especially in the last 10 minutes, still don’t get why he didn’t start, him and Kessie, once again Xavi has cost us another match but props to Madrid, they made us pay for All the spaces we left in defense
Xavi needs to start adapting a main system to replace búsquets. He is such a liability in big games, makes so many dumb mistakes that typically lead to scoring opportunities.
My best guess is because he is still recovering from his injury and they don’t want to risk him getting injured again.
Kroos played a perfect game, I hope once he retires he’ll get the recognition he truly deserves. Top 5 midfielder in the world currently and one of the best of all time.
I loved how Vinicius naturally felt like kicking the ball in a second time after the Valverde goal.😂
