After falling behind in the tenth minute, goals from Sergio Ramos and Karim Benzema saw Real Madrid come from behind to beat Galatasaray 2-1 on their own patch to win the Santiago Bernabeu Trophy last night – though the ‘goal’ of the night belonged to Angel Di Maria, who saw his 25-yard, postage stamp-seeking missile ruled out for offside…
God damn, that’s a sweet strike.
There’s an interesting sideline from the game against Gala, in that apparently Jose Mourinho dropped Iker Casillas to the bench after the ‘keeper had the temerity to ring Xavi and Carles Puyol after the last Clasico ended in various skirmishing and eye-gougery to apologise for Real’s conduct.
How about that?
