After a nice summer rest things are starting to move again in the football world. (I for one have actually enjoyed the rest since the remainder of the year things are non-stop in the Real Madrid universe.)
After a disappointing draw and eventual loss in penalties against Roma, Real put in an impressive performance against Manchester City this morning.
Benzema, Cristiano, Pepe and our home grown Cheryshev all scored in today’s second pre-season match. The team was solid in defense and dangerous in attack. Had a penalty not been mistakenly called on Ramos (who handled the ball outside the box), it would have included a clean sheet.
Things are just getting started but let’s hope this is a glimpse of what’s to come.
