Barca odds cut after rout at the Nou Camp

david-villaAll that was missing from last night’s game on Sky Sports was for the Spanish commentary to take over when every goal went in. Well it might have amused those Barcelona fans even more than the score line was tickling them already. By the end of it won’t have been any kind of token for the Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho.

In his first El Clasico, the “Special One” had been thoroughly outclassed in every department in a 5-0 loss to a team who must currently be considered close to, if not the best team in the world. The only redeeming feature for Madrid is that if they win all the rest of their games they’ll win the league. Some saving grace eh!

Goals for Barcelona came from Xavi, Pedro, a brace from David Villa, and a late Jeffren strike as Leo Messi showed Cristiano Ronaldo up big style. To add to this the midfield battle was such a one sided contest that you wouldn’t have noticed Sami Khedira and Mesut Ozil were the commentator not to mention their names. That’s how anonymous the German pair was. It was like masturbating with a cheese grater for Madrid fans.

William Hill has already cut the odds for the Catalan side to win the title to 4/6, lengthening the side from the capital to 11/10. Spokesperson Graham Sharpe commented: “Barca were clearly the better side this time and look worthy favourites for the title.”

As a neutral observer and admirer of Mourinho it was disappointing not to see the Portugeezer at his controversial best – always the return game later in the season though.
