Real Madrid played their La Liga match on Saturday night against Hercules and won 2-0. A comfortable win with goals from Benzema. That is a good sign as we desperately need someone to score goals when Ronaldo is not playing in the team. Now Real Madrid is all set to face Lyon in the Champions League in a couple of days with all our main players except for Kaka getting some rest and some playing time as well.
Real Madrid had cut Barcelona’s lead to just 4 points with a win on Saturday albeit with one game more. Barcelona had to win their tough awaymatchagainst Sevilla in order to keep the gap at a mammoth 7 points but they could not. Sevilla put up a brave fight and finally stole some points from Barcelona which obviously has helped Real Madrid indirectly.
Barcelona drew their game 1-1 on sunday and hence now lead Real Madrid by 5 points. That is not a mammoth lead
