Barcelona vs Real Madrid, 2-2 Draw in The First La Liga El Clasico of This Season

El Clasico La Liga News : A brace each for Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo ensured that the first league Clasico of the season ended in a 2-2 draw. Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo were both in scintillating form as Barcelona and Real Madrid played out at Camp Nou in the first Liga Clasico of this season. There was nothing to separate the Ballon d’Or hopefuls as after giving the visitors the lead, the Portuguese earned his side a point following a brace from the Argentine superstar. FC Barcelona walked away from the first La Liga Clasico of the season with a point on Sunday night as Lionel Messi’s brace was cancelled out by two goals from Cristiano Ronaldo. The first proper chance of the match fell to Karim Benzema in the 13th minute, but thankfully he totally miss hit a Cristiano Ronaldo cross. Real Madrid took the lead on 23 minutes, exploiting the Blaugrana’s makeshift backline to find Ronaldo open on the left-hand side of the penalty area, and the Portuguese forward did exceptionally well to score at Victor Valdés’ near post.

Yet the Blaugrana were unperturbed at the other end of the pitch and they secured an equaliser when Pedro’s cross looped into the air following a pair of deflections. In his eagerness to head the ball away, Pepe misjudged the flight of the ball and Messi, who was lurking in the box, beat Iker Casillas as it dropped behind the defender and fired into the back of the net. You won’t see a more precise freekick than the one Messi bent perfectly into the corner to make it 2-1 in the 62nd minute.  Leo was tackled hard from behind from Alonso, who must have been worried about a second yellow, but the Argentine made them pay the ultimate price with a stunning freekick, which is a skill he has really worked on the last year and it’s paying massive dividends. However, Barcelona only held the lead for five minutes as Ronaldo equalised on the 66th minute after beating the offside trap. Despite injuring his shoulder on a high bicycle kick attempt, Ronaldo made it 2-2 only 4 minutes after Barça took the lead. Barcelona did have chances to win the game, as Martin Montoya’s long-range effort rebounded off the cross-bar, but on reflection, a draw was probably the fairest result. Tito Vilanova’s 100% league record may have come to an end, but Barca remain unbeaten and eight points ahead of Los Blancos headed into the international break.
Mourinho said after the game that you can’t choose between them and that “I think it should be forbidden to say who the best player in the world because these two are from another planet.” The press would seem to agree. Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi match each other in El Clásico with two goals each. Each team now has a draw, a win and a loss each from encounters this season.

Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey keeping his fingers crossed to stay skipper Robin van Persie

Aaron Ramsey is staying hopeful that Arsenal captain Robin van Persie will decide to stick with the club and resist the temptation to leave. He  is keeping his fingers crossed that skipper Robin van Persie will resist the temptation to leave the Emirates Stadium this summer. Speculation over the Holland international’s future has been rife in recent weeks with Manchester City, Manchester United and Juventus having all been linked with moves for the 28-year-old in the wake of his announcement that he would not be signing a new contract,which expires next year.

Manchester United have already confirmed an interest in signing the striker, while Manchester City and Juventus are also understood to have made bids for the Dutchman. Van Persie scored 37 goals last season, 30 of them in the Barclays Premier League, and claimed both the PFA and Football Writers’ Association Player of the Year awards, and Ramsey is hopeful that despite all the rumours, the club can retain his services. They still finished 19 points behind the two Manchester clubs, but Ramsey is convinced a better start this time around could help them to close that gap. Ramsey is also keen to see his team-mate stick around in North London, particularly after Van Persie scored 37 goals for Arsenal in all competitions last season.”He had a brilliant season last year and he is a big player for us, so we are just hopeful that he will stay.” said Ramsey, who is on Team GB Olympic duty.

He said: We don’t know anything that goes on. We hope that he stays at Arsenal.   He said that If we get off to a better start this season than we did last season, we know we are capable of finishing pretty strongly, like we did last year.We have brought in a couple of players who are well known and hopefully we can put ourselves in a position to compete early on. Van Persie’s sparkling form helped the Gunners to stage a fightback after a poor start to the season which saw them win just two of their first seven league games, a run which included an 8-2 drubbing at Manchester United and a derby defeat at Tottenham. They rallied to such an extent that they eventually ended the campaign in third place and secured a Champions League qualification berth which at one point looked beyond them as they claimed 33 of the final 45 points on offer. Nevertheless, the Gunners, who have added Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud to the squad during the summer, still finished 19 points behind the two Manchester clubs, and Ramsey is convinced a better start this time around could help them to close that gap.

Barcelona signs nine-year-old schoolboy Zak became “Irish Messi”

A boy from Castleknock has caught the eye of more than one football club at a particularly young age named Zak Gilsenan is just nine.Gilsenan scored seven goals in the trial to beat a field of 400 young hopefuls to join the FCB Escola football academy.Thus he has won a place at FCBE Scola, the football academy which is part of a world-renowned training facility in La Masia and turned out not only Messi but also other legends such as Xavi and Andres Iniesta, who played such an important role in Spain’s majestic victory at Euro 2012.

The academy is also big on imparting intangible values which it lists as “tolerance, respect, solidarity, comradeship, citizenship and integration.”Zak’s parents say they are ready to move from Dublin to Spain if their son’s dreams develop.Zak’s father, Stephen Gilsenan, said: ‘I know Zak is young to be doing this but kids are like a sponge at this age. People say we are mad but in Barcelona he will be educated in the best footballing techniques. All we can do is go and see how it develops.We know it’s ruthless over there.

We don’t want him turned into a machine, we just want him to enjoy it.When Zak was spotted by Tottenham Hotspur, who were running football camps over there. Zak’s father Stephen works in mining in Australia.Mr Gilsenan added:”We came home with the intention of letting Zak go to Spurs, but in the meantime we had a call from Barcelona.One of their former players saw him playing in Oz and recommended him. They offered Zak a trial in May and it was a great experience. It consisted of over 400 boys from all over the world. He was asked back in June when it was cut down to 90.Then in a match between the top 16 players, Zak just ran riot and scored seven goals. He was phenomenal. Then we heard back two weeks ago and they offered him a spot.”The dream of every young footballer: to attract the attention of Barcelona, one of world’s most famous and successful teams came true for Zak.”Zak is already being marked out as ‘a midfield ace’ as well as a natural striker.

We wish him all the best and we hope to see him turn out for the Boys in Green, with John Joe, at World Cup 2022.
