KUN sinks Barcelona and gives Real a big hand

Just a couple of days after stating that "I'll never join Real Madrid", Sergio Kun AGÜERO helped the White Empire to restore their lead at the top of La Liga standings with a terrific display in Atletico Madrid win over FC Barcelona.

Kun was unstoppable for Barça. A couple of minutes after Ronaldinho scored a magic goal for the Catalans, the former Independiente striker completely fooled another ex-Independiente, Gabriel MILITO and sent the ball off Carles PUYOL's back heel and into the net.

But he had more in store. A clever run on the right was finished with a lovely assist for fellow Argentine Maxi RODRIGUEZ and La Fiera sent a low drive to the far post to give Aleti the lead with which they closed the firt half.

It looked like a costly mistake when AGÜERO shot wide when he had only the keeper to beat and a wide-open team-mate in front of an empty net, but he more than made up for that mistake. He forced PUYOL to foul him inside the penalty area and another former Independiente, Diego FORLAN made no mistake from the spot. 3-1.

Was Kun satisfied after that? Not nearly! He saved the best for 75th minute when he started a frantic run on the left and curled the ball to the far post before seeing the yellow card for taking his shirt off. It didn't matter for Kun. He took part in all 4 of Atletico Madrid's goals and placed his team on Champions League zone.

Samuel Eto'o scored Barça's second goal soon after AGÜERO's goal and with just a few seconds to the final whistle, Kun was replaced and received a standing ovation that said volumes of what he did.

Even if with his wonderful display he helped city rivals Real Madrid, which won 3-2 at Recreativo de Huelva, opened up a 5-point gap over Barcelona again. Fernando GAGO had a sensational assist for ROBINHO to score his second goal coming on from the bench. Gabriel HEINZE and Gonzalo HIGUAIN also played for Real Madrid.

But today it was all about Kun in a match in which Lionel MESSI played only a few minutes in the second half and saw how his friend took center stage this time.

I woke up to see the game around 3.00 am (Malaysia time) and I was never disappointed. Right from the start till the very end.

I have to admit my attention in the beginning was more to Lionel & Barca as I was hoping they can win and put some pressure on Real. But all that change when Barca has decided to put Lionel on the bench while on the opposite end both Kun & Maxi alongside Diego FORLAN were a constant menace to the Barca defends.

That was a sensational pass to Maxi and even my dad who admitted that he has never of him before was very impress.

I felt a bit pity for MILITO as he was clearly having a hard time against our boys in the red & white stripe.

Meanwhile far away from La Liga to the lesser renowned Greek Super League.

Olympiacos drew with Asteras Tripolis 1-1 with Horacio CARDOZO scoring for the visiting team the equalizer in the 33rd minute.

Olympiacos who will play Chelsea in their Champions League encounter had Christian LADESMA in their starting line up.

While on the opposite end, CARDOZO had Carlos MASARA in company on the starting line up.
