By: Casey Rhine

Ohhhh El Clásico, where to begin. One of soccer's most heated, yet most deeply cherished rivalries.Few of you readers get to experience El Clasico, in Barcelona, while it's happening. This was my mission on December 23rd and should be your mission on May 6th if you are not lucky enough to go to the game in the Camp Nou.

The Author Of This Story Is Having A Horrible Day, But This Amazing Vinícius Jr. Goal Made It Better

I’ll make this a brief as possible, but the author of this story is in the foulest of moods. His favorite Premier League side lost in wild fashion, his college football team missed out on the playoffs by two inches and on top of that he has a hamstring that doesn’t work after an incident during a video.

Con Andrés Guardado Como Capitán, Betis Causa La Primera Derrota Del Barcelona De Xavi

En su cuarto partido como técnico del Barcelona, Xavi conoció la derrota. Después de triunfos sobre el Espanyol y el Villarreal, además de un empate en Champions League ante el Benfica, los catalanes no pudieron defender su casa y terminaron perdiendo por la cuenta mínima ante el Betis de Andrés Guardado y Diego Lainez.

Lainez se quedó todo el partido en la banca de suplentes, pero Guardado jugó los 90 minutos, llevó la jineta de capitán e incluso inició la jugada que significaría el gol de la victoria para el conjunto verdiblanco.

Real Betis Stuns Barcelona At Camp Nou And Hands Xavi His First Loss In Charge

There’s No Reason To Be Doing Anything But Watching Vinícius Jr. Right Now

It wasn’t a convincing win but Real Madrid defeated Athletic Club 1-0 on Wednesday night at the Santiago Bernabéu to open a seven-point lead over Atlético at the top of LaLiga (although los Colchoneros maintain a game in hand).

Athletic doesn’t make it easy for anyone — the Basque side entered this match with the division’s best defensive record after conceding 10 goals through 14 matches — but they came up against two of the planet’s most in-form players in Karim Benzema and Vinícius Júnior, and it was ultimately that duo that made the difference.

¡Al Fin Fue Factor! Diego Lainez Tuvo Que Esperar Casi Dos Años Para Volver A Marcar Por El Betis

¡Hey, breaking news! Diego Lainez hizo un gol para el Real Betis.

La carga noticiosa del enunciado no es menor, ya que es la primera visita a la redes del extremo mexicano en ¡23 meses!

Sí, la vida de Lainez en el conjunto español no ha sido fácil. El jugador llegó a España en 2019 con la maleta llena de ilusiones, pero entre lesiones y un nivel inconsistente no ha podido transformarse en un indispensable para el plantel verdiblanco. De hecho, ni siquiera es titular.

Lionel Messi edged Robert Lewandowski for the men’s 2021 Ballon d’Or, the Argentine’s record-extending seventh trophy as the best men’s player in the world. But Cristiano Ronaldo, who didn’t even attend the award show in Paris, still managed to make it all about him.

Messi, who this year helped Argentina win the 2021 Copa América and Barcelona win the Copa del Rey (lol), was also named the world’s best men’s player in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2015 and 2019. 

Handed Fresh Start, Jadon Sancho Delivers With Thunderous First Goal For Man United

In the build up to Manchester United’s top-of-the-table Champions League Group F clash with Villarreal at El Madrigal, caretaker manager Michael Carrick revealed that his revolution would be a subtle one; blink and you just might miss it.

“Obviously I’ve worked closely with Ole for a long time now and we do have very similar beliefs,” the defeatist inside Carrick said. “We did as players and we certainly do as coaches and manager so, yes of course, I’ve got my own personality to Ole, but it’s very similar.”
