Madrid press: La Liga starts again

Press report

Madrid sports newspapers highlight today in their front pages the fact that the fight for La Liga has become extremely thrilling after Barcelona’s win over Real Madrid.

“La Liga starts again,” titles Marca, pointing out Real are now tied with Atletico Madrid at the top of the table, while Barca trails them by only one point.

“It was a beautiful Clasico, full of excitement,” they claim. “Messi scored a hat-trick to become the top goal scorer of the Clasicos,” Marca reports.

“Sergio Ramos’ red card hurt Madrid, and Los Blancos blame the referee for the loss,” the Madrid-based daily explains.

The other main Madrid sports newspaper, As, titles on its front page “Storm of Football.”

“Three penalties, seven goals, one red card and plenty of thrills,” they highlight.

As emphasizes the fact that Cristiano Ronaldo was mad at the referee. “I saw him pale, nervous. You can’t referee a game in that condition. We don’t want him to referee the final of the Copa del Rey,” the Portuguese told the press.
