Real Madrid 6-0 Real Zaragoza

La Liga started a week late due to the strike. Real Madrid seemingly could not wait for the league to start as they scored 6 goals in their first game of the season against Real Zaragoza. Ronaldo scored 3 of his own while Marcelo, Alonso, and Kaka each found the net once. Los Blancos looked good offensively as well as defensively. Casillas kept a clean sheet, but he wasn’t tested much. The commentator for the game on GolTV mentioned on several occasions that Real Madrid will win the league this year, even over Barcelona whom they failed to beat in the Supercup. I definitely think it is possible. Get your stats on the game from LiveSoccer TV.

What a way for Ronaldo to start off La Liga 2011-2012 with a hat trick!

Several opportunities were not converted by Özil, Benzema, et al. If we are to beat Barcelona this season, we will need to capitalize on every opportunity as a common practice. We simply cannot afford to miss such opportunities. That was the difference between Real Madrid and Barcelona in the Supercup.

  • Benzema: 1
  • Kaká: 1
  • Marcelo: 1
  • Özil: 1
