Today, saturday the 16 of april was another big soccer day. First it was the FA cup semifinal between the two powerhouses from Manchester, City and United. As a United fan I really wanted United to win this game, specially since City has bought star players the last couple of years and been a real competitor to the "big four" in the PL. But I didn't got what I was asking for, City won with 1-0 by a goal from Yaya Toure. The game was a hard one with more hard tackles than dangle. United started the game best and got their opportunity to score in the first half when Dimitar Berbatov was alone with the keeper twice but missed. Also worth to notice from the game was that Paul Scholes got a red card after he tackled Zabaleta in the 76th minute. After the game city player Balotelli showed the world once agains what kind of an asshole he is when he chirped the United players, which ended up into a samll fight.Read more about the game at: http://www.manutd.com/en/Fixtures-And-Results/Match-Reports/2011/Apr/City-v-United-report.aspx
The second game today was between two other powerhouses, Real Madrid and Barcelona. This game was the first one between these teams in three weeks. The games between Real Madrid and Barcelona is called El Clasico and this El Clasico ended 1-1. This game you could see that Real Madrid had a game plan to play more defensive than they use to, which almost gave them a victory. It will be interesting to see what this serie if games will turn out to. It will be a lot of hide and seek I think.
