Real Madrid – Manchester United [Recap]

The match between Real Madrid and Manchester United ended in a 1-1 draw, meaning that I have definitely lost the bet I placed on Madrid’s victory.
On the 13th of February, Cristiano Ronaldo marked his first appearance against Manchester United with a goal, but that achievement appeared to be insufficient to win the match.

Danny Welbeck from Manchester United opened the scoring for the Premier League leaders in the 20th minute. Ten minutes later, Ronaldo reestablished the balance on the scoring table, by adding his 37th goal of the season.
Real Madrid made no surprises in its starting lineup, with French defender Raphael Varane replacing Pepe at center back and Mourinho picking his first-choice midfield and attack.
As for the atmosphere in the capital of Spain, it was simply marvelous. Thousands of United fans soaked up the atmosphere with lager and tapas in the city’s squares, bars and pubs. Inside the Bernabeu, teams were greeted by a wall of noise, banners and flags.

The boss of United, Sir Alex Ferguson seemed to be extremely decided to put into the game the attacking quartet compound of Van Persie, Wayne Rooney Welbeck, and Shinji Kagawa and the captain Nemanja Vidic who had just returned from a nasty knee injury.
All in all, I think this was a historical match, even if the scoring table didn’t look that fabulous.

Result: -10, bet lost

    I think it is pretty clear now that Real Madrid are not in their best shape at the moment: More than that, they are easy to beat and we shouldn’t rely on them very much…

    Agree with Ileanu here. Real Madrid is kind of worrying me, probably should have won here. I don’t know if they’re easy to beat, but they aren’t as reliable as I’d like to see from them.

    It seems that the injury suffered by Phil Jones from Manchester United had a significant impact over the team: Still, that was not enough reason for them to lose in front of Real Madrid.
