Goals from Carlitos, Pipita, Hat-Trick Di Maria & Much More
From what I summarized after Saturday’s fixture, it looks like dress rehearsal from our forwards for next week friendly against Germany.
In England, while all the fuss was about the first meeting between John TERRY and Wayne BRIDGE since their recent controversy; Carlos TEVEZ decides to take matters into his own hand. He scored twice as Manchester City defeated Chelsea 4-2 at Stamford Bridge. This takes his tally to 23 goals in all competition for him this season.
In Spain, of all the big names; this occasion truly belongs to Gonzalo HIGUAIN as he was star in Real Madrid’s 5-1 trashing over Tenerife. Hr scored the first two and then went up to set Real’s third goal scored by KAKA.
With this result, the pressure was all on Barcelona as they need to maintain their comfortable position at the top. Down 0-1 against Malaga, they equalize through PEDRO in the 69th minute. Then with six minutes left, Lionel MESSI tapped in the winner after some nice work from XAVI and Dani ALVES. That was his 17th goal of the season.
In Portugal, Angel DI MARIA was in the heart of everything as Benfica ran out against Leixoes 4-0 with the talented winger scoring a hat-trick, the third goal which is an absolutely wonder.
