Two draws and one win apiece is how the titans of the soccer Spanish Liga, Real Madrid F.C. and Barcelona F.C., split the spoils after the awaited “Fantastic Four.”
The four matches exceeded the expectations. Barcelona played with a divine power whereas Real Madrid built the famous “White Wall” in front of their goal. The teams fought until their deaths, defended their goal posts with their souls during every match. There were plenty of chances to score, nasty fouls, crazy red cards, hateful tackles, and luckily for the fans, exquisite joga bonito, the beautiful game. At the end of the games, players had to drag their fatigued legs to the dressing room.
For the Spanish Liga, they shredded their skin for a final of 1-1. Three days later, Real Madrid snatched the Copa del Rey, winning 1-0 in an epic extra time. Finally, for the UEFA Champions League, Barcelona imposed 2-0 in the first leg and did the minimum in the second leg to draw 1-1. While Barcelona won the ticket to the UEFA Champions League Final, Real Madrid took Barcelona’s crumbs: the Copa del Rey.
Now, like a kid for dessert, the world is waiting the UEFA Champions League Final on May 28 in Wembley, where Barcelona will meet Manchester United for the glory.
