I wasn't carried away when Sevilla were 2 goals up because you can't beat Barca until the final whistle is blown. They didn't deserve to lose, although that's what is said to each every team that played really good against Barca. Nonetheless, I think the red card signalled the downfall of their play right up to the end. I'd put blame on sloppy defending too. Madrid fans must surely be choked right now. They have to wait at least another week to hope Barca drop points.
I'm just going to assume Madrid will win tomorrow.
I'm also going to assume they will get all 3 points at the Clasico next week because Song and Masch against world class forwards is going to be a bloodbath.
We will still have a 5 point cushion though, which is still a really good advantage to have.
Gentlemen, if you lose today you will continue to be the best in the world but if you win today you will be eternal.
