Real Madrid 5-1 Athletico Bilbao (8 May 2010)- Reviews
Cristiano Ronaldo and his duo partner Gonzalo Higuain showed an impressive performance during La Liga match against Athletico Bilbao, at Santiago Bernabeu. Each of them managed to score 1 goal for Los Galacticos. The victory 5-1 to Bilbao kept their 1 point difference from Barcelona, who won 3-2 against Sevilla on the same day.
The first goal for Real Madrid was in 22nd minute, when Fernando Amorebieta made a handball at the penalty box, which caused them a red card, playing with just 10 player for the rest of the match. Cristiano was the executor, and he succeded in netting the ball, ahead from Bilbao with 1-0.
But 4 minutes before the first half over, Bilbao made their first goal, and it boosted their confidence. The score ended in 1-1 in the first half.
The Whites started to get panic. If they didn’t get full 3 points on this match, they will have to forget the La liga title. Pellegrini changed the strategy by putting Kaka and also Benzema on the field. His strategy worked well, and it showed with a nice header from Higuain on 73rd minute.
Higuain’s goal injected more spirits to the Whites. 7 minutes later, Sergio Ramos created a nice overlapping which ended with a shot that add the points to Madrid with 3-1. A minute later, Benzema showed his skill by scoring another goal, and it killed the hopes for Bilbao to narrowing their score with their host.
And it seemed that Los Blancos was on fire that night, as Marcello scored one more goal for the Spanish Giant, just 1 minute before the game ended, with the result 5-1 for the host. That was a nice closure for the goals party at Santiago Bernabeu.
