Hala Madrid ! Isco is a gem
Isco really put his shift in during the game. He was involved in the build up to both of the goals, lead BOTH teams in tackles (9), lead the team in killer passes, kept possession of the ball admirably with 92% passing rate which was the highest on the team (except for illaramendi who only played 1 pass). He also had a few moments where he was pressured heavily but with a bit of wizardry, he held onto the ball and looked a bit Thiago-esque when he did it.
Hes one of the unsung heroes of this final, isn't grabbing headlines but played a key role in midfield his first final at club level. What strikes me is that Ancelotti said a few months ago that Isco needs to improve defensively to play in that position, and while he isn't exactly defensively perfect, he's shown huge signs of improvement. This kid is begging for minutes. He sat next to Casillas when the team got together to take the photo with the trophy and the huge smile on Iscos face was a symptom of the great game he had.
The best Madrid players : Benzema,Di Maria,Modric,Bale
But I think that Bale does not deserve to be MOTM,Benzema/Maria/Modric were better,hoever Bale did a very good match !
Sorry who scored, i lost all confidence in your ratings, after making Alves Barça's 2nd best player.
Damn, you never took a second and thought that maybe (especially since a lot of people and not only Real fans) there is a reason why Barcelona is associated with favorable decisions from referees? xD
Real win and still all you lot talk about is the refs. Enjoy the moment, your team won.
May be barcelona do not need football training anymore,
They need training that makes them manly..
Like listening heavy metal, playing rugby etc.....
UEFAlona are GARBAGE. 3 losses in a row. LOLOLOLOLOLOL.
So glad Bale's not doing this in a Tottenham shirt any more :P
Bartra should've slide tackled Bale and taken one for the team
....we have to buy two central defenders and goalkeeper....playing with defensive midfielders in the last row is very silly!!!!
Congrats to Madrid, who thoroughly deserved their victory tonight, from a dissappointed Barca fan. However, I still personally beleive that this current Barca side are one of the best teams ever. No matter HOW good a team gets, when you play against the worlds greatest sides several times in a season, you don't always win. Just my opinion. P.S. this current Madrid team are probably in the 10 greatest teams ever.

Bale clicks on the left flank
Pepe was amazing today. I hope he plays like this in every single world cup game. I also loved how Coentrao played. Oh man, how I love Bale. He was superb. He went for a drink, and was still able to out pace Bartha. I think Messi was missed more than Ronaldo, in today's match.
No ref no Barca period
I think Barca might get relegated to the segunda next season...
Bale goal was so briliant ! 10/10
Isco MOTM for me alongside Bale
Alves and Neymar are really callous people from the inside..
barca's reign is officially over...
We cant afford to miss those chances vs Bayern ! Forwards need to be more sharper... Welldone Los Blancos , lot to do yet..
Anybody saw Messi by the way? Think he went missing quite some time ago.
Bale finally going to get some positive publicity. Hopefully he can end the season well as he hasn't stood out for me.. Di Maria has been better in the big games.
Congratulations for not understanding irony. Now, Guru Joe, go find one of your Messi (right, the least rated starter) posters and weep on it.
Bale will be better than Ronaldo.
Bale finally proved his worth against a big team and when we needed him most.
HALA MADRID! :)
Alves isn't African genius
Neymar = overrated piece of diving s*****
ahahaha Barca without cup, league and champions league too :)
Well done, with 3 men less on your formation you still put up a good fight. You should be proud of yourselves. Dani Alves though should be sent straight back to Africa with first plane.
barca is nothing without messi
BALE MODRIC DI MARIA TRIO FANTASTIC
Benz.. damn, you could have put this asleep...
BALE THE FERRARI!
Brilliant from Hurricane Bale!!!!!!!
Isco is too tired for sure... should substitute him for sure.
When's the last time we saw Messi's player rating under 6!?
If Ronaldo was playing Madrid would have had the lead we needed to finish our chances and Barca punished us if they win it is completley understandable.
It somewhat seems that there is like one gear missing in attack for Real with the absence of Ronaldo.
Sometimes I wonder if ever Martino has eyes can't he see dat Sanchez needs to b in this game? We need Sanchez to help Neymar out.
Barca players falling down whenever they can in the box.
Be aware real neymar will soon be diving around....
Bale is cutting Barca's defense he just can't get the shot right
Wen did Iniesta start diving. Wat is all this with this Barca players no motivation nothing at all they are all bored of success perhaps most of them should b sold including Xavi and Iniesta
Y isn't sanchez playing cmon martino dnt u think this team selection is nt really helping, once again Tello is nt even on the bench. HA
I'm not trying to offend Barca fans but come on Neymar, Iniesta, Bartra all diving.
Why so many crosses? Martino is crazy! where is our Barca?
Messi will soon ask penalty for getting into penalty box.
Actually ye, di Maria falls a lot lower than Bale or Benzema.
Real play more 4-4-2 than 4-3-3
mass-cross-strat best strat.
Damn, not United, Fulham, my bad.
Anyway, I see Martino saw ManU play against United xD
Hahahahhahaa, Bartra had his hand in Coentrao's face, yet he was crying. Why am I not surprised.
Go Go, Neymar, try harder, why no ballet maneuver this time?
Disgusting from Neymar..
Barcelona 3 - 2 Real Madrid.
ANGEL Dribble MAGICO
Help from the Linesman, he was offside.
How many dives do you expect today from Barcelona?
Diving is way better than crying like a baby
both teams lose vs bavaria ahahaha
Neymar will make a diving record today.......!
@ commandozap, it makes every aspect of like better. Try eating while high on weed, it will be the best meal you have ever eaten :)
No to cocaine, try methamphetamine instead ;)
barca 4- 2 real
We don't have Ronaldo, it will be difficult but not impossible if Barcelona win then it is understandable.
Barca players are always blaming the grass on the pitch.
Marijuana is bad for your system. Try cocaine instead, it makes you more attentive. Real Madrid will win this match easily without Penaldo. Messi to score, Bale will play poorly, and Benzema will score.
I hope it will be higher scoring game.
barca is angry...we will win.
Madrid fans are already making excuses. LOL
samank9 - Yes man you are right about the (1.)rule red card and penalty, it is unacceptable this rule is still on. But even more important is (2.) - there is apsolutely no reason why the referees don't watch the video repetition on screen after every doubtful situation and than make the right decision. The coach of the other team should have right at least 3 times in the match to call for it. No diving, no folse offsides, no anger in one team's fans. Just hte beauty of football. What do you think why this two things (1. and 2.) are like that?
I dont say that ref dont help barca, but its not fair to say taht ref helps ONLY to barca. refs sometimes makes mistakes, he is a human being. Ref helps to barca, real , atletico, Man utd, Liverpool, and so on and so on.
Smoke a marijuana and enjoy the clasico , you will grasp the game like no other pundit can. Your welcome
Hopefully it will a game without any controversy, but usually Classicos are from that... I believe the fate of the game will rely on Casillas and Messi for Real Madrid and Barcelona respectively. Let's hope for a clean and exciting game that can perhaps go into Extra Time, same as 2011.
Pepe dives, I agree, Bale too. But what about.. let's say, Alba, Alves, Busquets, Fabregas, Pedro and the lead actors Sanchez and Neymar? Only Neymar himself dives about as much as rest of the league. I don't think anyone said Real isn't getting any help, every bigger club is. But the extent Barcelona has been helped against the likes of Real, Chelsea, Arsenal, is there any other club that was helped so much? Short answer: no. Back to last game, is 1 unfair penalty comparable with 2 unfair penalties and a red card?
Biscuits intentional stamp on pepe's head? pathetic
Like Pepe doesn't dive?
well, madrid fans always have excuses :)
not worth betting on
Best bet is real madrid's win
sudvabilis- that isnt to help. the ref thought it happend inside the box and its very hard to judge in that potically moment. help is when the ref gives a penalty and a red card, when he can choice to give yellow and keep the game going. help is when he choice too give another penalty after that in the 84 min so the team can win when it looks like a draw. / proffessor
Dylan - are you blind?:D or you just trolling and cant accept than not only for barca referre helps? stupid people
both the clasicos uefalona got many decisions in their favour and survived , when they get none even valladolid and granada chew them raw so imagine what real would do. When we speak of their ref favourism they lunatically mention some one decision which was a 50-50 to counter us. Its MANY against just a 50-50 , understand the logic . And then they moan why only their club is called uefalona , have balls to accept your club is favoured extravagantly gullibles.
Real has achieved way more than barca has , only this decade uefalona had their cake. If ref were lenient you guys wouldnt have existed. Embezzlement , trafficking , tax fraud , ref influencing , diving etc everything bad is associated with your club. Satan's club
Real fans ignore the help they get from the ref. Always talking about Barca, Real fans have an inferiority complex.
1-2 for Real
sudvabalis-Alves was in the box and thats all that matters.He commited the foul in his own box thus a penalty.
soulstratcher - i think u forgot the penalty for real when alves fouled ronaldo outside the box. u fool.
F*ck off anyway
Referee's will always be there to help the sinking uefalona , dont be surprised if they earn a penalty or two and real madrid man gets sent off.
I hope we get our revenge and send the filth into the oblivion.
@arvid.friberg I don't usually like when others diss other football clubs, but the joke you made was classic. lol
2-0 for Madrid is my bet. The only way for Iker to concede, is if Neymar gets away with a dive, and Messi to convert. But I highly doubt it.
Barcelona to WIN---> 2-1
Marcelo & Cristiano are out and Carlo said for the first time he isnt revealing his starting xi , maybe nacho can start
I reiterate , we can win this without Ronaldo. Ronaldo can relax and recover for the bayern clash
Casillas havent conceded a goal till now in the competition, incredible iker ! Hope he keeps it the same way in the finale..
But i fear for ref , its gonna be spanish ref so i expect him to be prejudiced towards uefalona but we are stronger and we will deal with it.
Missi will again try for penalty tommorow , without penalty he is just an ordinary player nowadays !
Ronaldo is out for this match but we can still win as long as the ref doesn't screw us over.
Carvajal, Ramos, Pepe, Coentrao
Modric, Alonso, Isco
Di Maria, Benzema, G. Bale
Atletico fans have started moaning again ! Guys you have 4 away tough games before winning the league , not a piece of cake , dont count your chickens before they're hatched.. Cant get the vanity you have been exhibiting.
Its funny when atletico fan starts sqealing , 5-0 remember?
No wonder why barca have lost 2 matches... they have saved up money for this match... BUT ... dosent matta cuz we ARE GOIN' TO WIN!! #iHalaMadrid
Oh look, a real fan moaning about the ref. What a surprise, just be quite and support your team.
who will be missing more Ronaldo or Messy? :))) Ronaldo is injury and messi will be walking on the field :))))))
Barcelona have yet to beat Madrid without controversey/ fairly all season.
As long as the referee does not make dumb calls and mistakes Madrid should be fine without Cristiano
