the final anyway.
The one thing this match proved was. If there is one man who knows how to beat Barcelona consistently then thats Jose Mourinho. That is Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid. That is Jose Mourinho with C.Ronaldo in his first 11.
Criticize Mourinhoallyou want for his ill mannered press conferences (why the heck do we care anyway, we want titles not toastmasters) and his anti football tactics. The point is, he gets the job done. And to all those who say he plays very defensive game.
If that is really the case then why has Real Madrid scored more goals than Barcelona in the league? Whatever is the case, may be Real Madrid got lucky or may be Barcelona never really played full strength after drawing El Clasico number 2, the point is, Real Madrid scored more goals.
