2011 Copa Del Rey Final

Real Madrid met Barcelona for the third time this season, last night. This time it was for the Copa de Rey. The game ended 0 – 0 in regulation time and many fans were looking forward to penalties. Ronaldo, having the extreme height on his jumps, took the lead for his team with a towering header. Now I’d normally go into much more detail for this sort of match, but for two reasons I am not going to. First being that I don’t have a lot of time to write this and second I want to talk about what happened after.

FA Cup/EPL Title Race

Stoke City and Bolton met today for the second semi final of the FA Cup. Stoke scored three goals in the first 30 minutes. They were dominating the match and this only continued into the second half, where Jonathan Walters got a double. Stoke city completely shut out Bolton with the final result being 5-0. It will be interesting to see how Stoke does in the final against Manchester City. Manchester is eager to a new trophy and they are the big guns in this final, but they cannot under estimate Stoke, of it will be a replay of the Carling Cup final, Arsenal v Birmingham City. Arsenal was looking to update their trophy cabinet after six years, but fell 1-2. Manchester City and Stoke meet at Wembley on May 14th.
