REAL MADRID WINS ITS 11 TH EUROPEAN - CHAMPIONS LEAGUE CUP

Spanish Football Club Real Madrid defeated fellow city & country Club Atletico de Madrid 5-3 (1-1 after 90 mins) in the penalty shoot out of the Final of the UEFA Champions League

Its the 11th European Cup for Real Madrid & it furthers their legendary heritage in this competition. At. Madrid losses its 3rd final in "unlucky" circumstances & also lengthens its "bad streak" in this competition. 

Either team deserved to win, both played to their limits but the penalty shoot out is like a "casino" & a miss by At. Madrid defender Juanfran - hitting the post - was the equilibrium breaker. The winner came from Cristiano Ronaldo who seems to be destined to shine in these important Football occasions.

Real Madrid started well & scored first when a free kick flicked on by Bale found Sergio Ramos in the 15th min to score. After closer look the Real Madrid defender was off-side but the goal stood. From here onwards At. Madrid slowly pulled themselves back into the game & took control.

In the 2º half Atletico Coach Simeone made an important substitution putting on Carrasco for Augusto. This gave Atletico more punch up forward eventual winning a penalty which unfortunately Griezmann missed hitting the bar. Not phased Atletico continued attacking & the equalizer came from a Jaunfran pass that found Carrasco in the far post in the 79th min.

The match went into extra-time & players from both teams began falling like flies with muscle cramps & from fatigue. Players from both teams like Bale, Modric, Koke, Luis Felipe ... were basically out of action while the fresh substitutes like Vazquez, Danilo, Carrasco etc pulled the cart. Few more opportunities not taken appeared for both teams that ended in the "dreaded" penalty shoot out stage.

The equilibrium breaker was when Atletico defender Juanfran failed his penalty hitting the post. This allowed Cristiano Ronaldo to score the winner straight after to take Real Madrid onto its 11th European-Champions League title.

Congratulations to Real Madrid, & very proud of Atletico Madrid. The overall winner is Spanish Football.

REAL MADRID - AT MADRID POSSIBLE STARTING 11 LINE-UPS

The day before & the Champions League Final 2016 in Milan between Real Madrid - Atletico Madrid is hot & occupying the main sections of the World Sports media. One of the main debates is the speculated start 11 line-ups of both sides, with Football experts debating which players will make up the opening squads.


We can speculate & believe these are the most likely starting 11 line-ups for Real Madrid & Atletico Madrid:

REAL MADRID : Navas, Carvajal, Pepe, Sergio Ramos, Marcelo, Casemiro, Modric, Kroos, Benzema, Cristiano Ronaldo & Gareth Bale.

ATLETICO MADRID: Oblak, JuanFran, Savic, Godin, Luis Felipe, Augusto, Saul, Gabi, Koke, Fernando Torres & Griezmann.

The Real Madrid speculated starting 11 looks fairly reasonable & correct, while the only doubt is with At.Madrid in whether Savic or JM Gimenez will start along side Godin in defence.

Kick off time 20.45 hours Saturday, a Final not to be missed.

NEW FC BARCELONA UNIFORM SEASON 2016-2017

FC Barcelona has presented officially today their new uniform for season 2016-2017. The new look brings back the "traditional" vertical lines, giving a "vintage" but at the same time modern look.  

No official sponsor appears on the new shirt at this moment because Barça is negotiating with the previous party. Personally, it´s the best time to buy the new Barça shirt as it does not have a sponsor "spoiling" the front, allowing a clean look.

Said this, get ready to get out of your pocket around 80-95 € if you want to look the part for next season. As you know this is the most used "marketing tactic" of the many used by Football Clubs to generate money from merchandising.
