Match Report:

Real Madrid have gone home crying after losing at the Bernabeu against The Pep Team, 1-2, goals by El Capitano Puyol and The French Bull Abidal.

Despite an early Cristinita Ronalda goal, where I felt Pinto could have done better, our Blaugrana heroes didn't give up, taking control of possession, patiently waiting to create gaps within the brutal Madridista defense.

At half time, I commented: 'No need to panic. Yes, we are losing but this result can not possibly stay like this until the final whistle. We are much better, have more possession, will find the spaces. Iniesta, Alexis or Cesc will create a gap. Xavi will continue to be dominant. Plus, Messi WILL turn up: Leo always does. It won't be easy. All we can do is KEEP TRUSTING THE PEP TEAM!!!!'

Guess what? Just 3 minutes after the restart, El Capitano smashed a header past Casillas after a tremendous corner cross by, who else, Commander Xavi Hernandez. I told you so. Haha.

From then on, the blaugrana-fear-factor began to force Los Blancos into disgraceful tackles, more appropriate to Street Fighter II than professional football. I still don't know how Messi left the pitch alive or Pepe didn't get arrested before leaving the stadium. That Psycho is an embarrassment to humanity.

After 77 minutes, Messi appeared in style, assisting Abidal who was the unlikely match-winner tonight. KAPOOOWWW!!!!!

Once again, Mou55555555inho's gangsters scored first. Once again, he decided to defend like a coward bulldog. Once again, FC BARCELONA came back. 1-2. In your face. Again.

Yes, I know there is a second leg at the Camp Nou, but tonight's result couldn't be any more valuable. Plus, I enjoyed it, big time. Only future will tell what happens next: Tonight though, I'll sleep like an angel.

THE PEP TEAM: TEACHING THOSE MANDRILES HOW TO PLAY FOOTBALL SINCE 2008!!!!

My 5-4-3-2-1 FC Barcelona points:

Puyol - 5 points
Alexis - 4 points
