Real Madrid lost their Copa Del Ray match against Levante 0-2 but we had a lead of 8-0 from the previous leg so it really does not matter if we lost by such margin and Mourinho was aware of this fact as can be seen from the interview that he gave to the press.
Real Madrid did not put up there usual starting eleven. Mourinho gave chance to a lot of young blood in this match as he knew that these are rare opportunities in which Real Madrid can afford to loose.
Benzema started but could not influence the game as much as he would have liked as he did not receive the service that he normally does from players such as Xabi Alonso and Khedira.
Anyway, the good news is that we are in the quarter finals after a long long time and we will face Athletico Madrid in the quarterfinals which is going to be a blockbuster of a match. Outside of Real Madird vs Barcelona, Real Madrid vs Atheltico Madrid is the biggest match in Spain.
Both teams have a history of playing some good matches with a lot of intensity and aggression.
JoseMourinhohas come out and said that he is not being allowed to sign another striker by the Real Madrid administration. I think he should not sign another striker. I think he should use Benzema to the fullest and if gets injured or needs to be rested then he should utilize some youth players.
I mean, we should learn a lesson from Barcelona. This years 3 finalists for FIFA WORLD PLAYER OF THE YEAR 2010 are all from Barcelona and not only are they from Barcelona, they are from their youth ranks. Players who have actually started their playing careersfromBarcelonawhichIthinkisa
