Real Madrid Versus Barcelona (Dec. 23rd 2007)

Real Madrid 1 Barcelona 0

Really a splendid one two by Ruud and Baptista for the game winning goal.  A give and go of the highest order, as it covered a great distance and was in the air the whole time. 

Early on it looked like Barcelona was going to take the lead and had most of the play.  But Baptista’s rocket of a goal seemed to take the air out of the Barcelona team and when Deco want off it only got worse.

Iniesta had a ton of the ball throughout the game but couldn’t find a way through. Ronaldinho seemed to try too hard to make something happen and was stifled–the pressure on him as they demand the best from him always. He did have his moments though.  Bojan came on late in the game and provided a spark, nearly scoring.
