One of the toughest rivals that was left in the league for real madrid, now that barcelona were close to real madrid, real madrid had to win this to keep a comfortable lead at the top of the table. Real madrid got off to a perfect start when heinze headed the ball into the goal after the free kick was taken by scniejder. 10 minutes or so later, Kanoute found himself in the box unmarked while the loose ball fell perfectly for Kanoute to volley the ball into the lower right corner past Casillas who as left stranted.

As always, the man of crisis is Raul, one minute after Kanoute scored, Raul chested a ball down from sniejder, into the penalty area, held off challenges from two defenders and slammed the ball into the top corner with a brilliant finish giving Real Madrid the lead once again. Real Madrid came out in the second half with a definitive game plan and stuck to it, guti played really well.

The most disappointing player by far was Higuain, I mean this guy’s first touch andspeedsuckseven
