Tough Defeat at Home:FC Barcelona 0-Real Madrid 1

25 12 2007

Rijkaard made a really serious expression. Ronaldinho looked down to the grass. And Julio Baptista lifted his arms. The Real Madrid striker scored a wonder goal and his club won 1-0 at traditional rival Barcelona on Sunday to move seven points clear in the Spanish league title race.

Indeed, the powerfully built Brazilian swapped passes with Ruud van Nistelrooy before driving the ball high into the top corner of the net in the 36th minute to silence the Barca supporters at Camp Nou.

Madrid’s third win at Barcelona in 24 years stretched the defending champion’s lead over the second-place Barcelona from four to seven points going into the midseason break. Now, Madrid has 41 points to Barca’s 34.

It’s important to say that Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas rescued his team with quality saves, but Barcelona missed injured forward Lionel Messi while Ronaldinho Gaucho again looked out of shape.
