After having dropped points against Sevilla, Barcelona and more recently Villareal, Real Madrid has managed to bounce back by claiming an overwhelming 10-2 triumph over Rayo Vallecano at the Santiago Bernabeu on December 20 of 2015.
However, even with this overwhelming triumph, Real Madrid’s loss against Villareal is something that the Portuguese defender of Real Madrid, Pepe still hasn’t got over as the experienced defender simply can’t understand what happened in the pitch and why his team lost the game.
Pepe reckons Real Madrid did not show sting on Sunday.
Playing away at Villarreal that night, Madrid lost 0-1 and as a result of that loss, they went 5 points down to their closest rivals in the top flight.
It’s not easy for them to catch up now, but, as per Pepe, the whites will keep on battling.
The Centre half, who was looking distressed while having this conversation with one of the television presenters, said, “Our intensity level was nowhere near it needed to be.”
Fabricio Coloccini was all praise for Jonas Gutierrez speaking in the interview post the match versus West Ham United.
It was the last game for Gutierrez in Newcastle shirt and he influenced it by scoring a goal towards the end.
The game was very important for the Magpies. A win was needed for them to avoid the demotion to the second tier and Gutierrez helped them achieve that.
The scenes were electric at St. James Park when that Gutierrez goal came.
Carlo Ancelotti is widely expected to leave Real Madrid after the Spanish club concluded the season in the worst possible manner by conceding three goals at home to Getafe.
After a string of poor performances, Real Madrid returned back to form with a bang after beating Granada 9-1 at the Santiago Bernebeu. The victory eases a lot of pressure on manager Carlo Ancelotti, who has come under fire in recent weeks following a string of bad results.
