Football News

For those of you living under a rock or outside of Spain (to the Spanish those are the same thing) it looks like football fans will see FC Barcelona and Real Madrid play each other four times in the span of one month. Both teams won decisively in their first game of the Champions League quarter final round with the second game coming this week. This means that Barça and Real Madrid will face each other in the semi-finals. They also play each other in Spanish League play this coming Saturday. Then they will play each other again on Wednesday the 20th in the Copa del Rey. Barça already has the Spanish league wrapped up and the big question is whether they will win the Champions and the Copa again as they did two years ago.

How will these games go down? I wouldn’t expect Barça to win all four games against Madrid but the way they are playing it isn’t impossible.  I wouldn’t think that Barça will even care much about the League game on Saturday and can certainly afford to play it safe. The Copa del Rey final is here in Valencia next week and that should be a dog fight as it is Madrid’s best chance to win some sort of title this season.  

Valencia CF kicked the living shit out of Villarreal (5-0) to all but take third place in the Spanish League which means another invitation to the Champions League next season.
