Real Madrid is back!

Last night, Real Madrid won the Spanish Royal Cup against F.C. Barcelona. It was an amazing match with 30 minutes extra-time. Cristiano Ronaldo scored the only goal of the game and gave Real Madrid the 18th Spanish Cup title, a title that breaks the hegemony of Barcelona during the last years.

Now there still remain two more mouth-watering matches between the two rivals in the Champions League on April 27 and May 3. Last weekend we saw the first of the four matches that they are playing in a month. I bet the next two matches are not suitable for the fainthearted.

The anecdote of the final is the fall of the cup from the top of a double-decker bus, which in addition ran over it. The cup slipped from Sergio Ramos' hands when they were approaching the Cibeles fountain, the place where Real Madrid followers gather to celebrate their victories. An identical replica of the cup has been given to Real Madrid so that it can be shown to the fans.

Congratulations Real Madrid!!!
