real madrid - sevilla, october 4, 2009.

the atmosphere in this stadium is thicker than treacle (1')

again its saint iker that comes to the rescue brilliantly...his defence found out again, (7')

its not a bad hit from fabiano but wonderful link of play from the white shirts, team football. it all leads towards luis fabiano and he's always gonna pull the trigger. (13')

absolute goal jmachine this sevilla team has been of late, 8 goals in the last 2 commpeteive game. they are on fire. (18')

was ray going to say that fabiano was going for SOMEBODYS ball when he kicked casillas?

it would make leb yashin come back from the dead is what it would do WHAT A SAVE...the save is beyond miracles when we see it again, the man walks on water. iker casillas, what a goaltender. (48')

the madridistas get down at the altar of iker casillas...the game's back on (49')

this was one of the best games i've watched in a long time. by the time the second half got rolling i got way too involved. jumping out of my seat, shouting...forgetting to take any notes! please feel free to add any of your favourite moments from the second half to the comments!

atletico madrid - zaragoza, october 3, 2009.

Was it a shot? It doesn’t matter because that’s a shot. And its accurate and its beautiful (jurado scores 2’)

A wonderful paly this by sabrosa a good look at him there…ex barca of course and all that skill and talent and pedigree came out in that run (11’)

Atletico Madrid knows where the danger is, and they know where Real Zaragoza’s bread is buttered. And its in the form of that man that’s on the deck, Aguilar (12’)

This is extremely naughty, Cleber comes through full of malicious intent, on a good player as well. (23')

The razor’s still glinting through the dark moments for Atletico Madidi, and its always that man with the big surgical knife, Forlan. (62')

Wonderful bravery by el Kun he doesn’t back away from the yellow shirts he entices them on, all over him, 4 around him. (65')

Reyes does absolutely brilliant here to set up Maxi the run is exemplary, this pass is absolutely world class…perfection from Antonio! (89')
