Bernabeu Bites: Preparation for Olímpic de Xàtiva

Denis Doyle

The squad takes to the training pitch in anticipation for their upcoming match against Olímpic de Xàtiva in the Copa del Rey

  • Carlo stated that Xabi Alonso renewing with Real would be the "best Christmas present" in a recent interview. He also compared Xabi to himself as a player as neither are/were particular barn burners, but admitted that Xabi has better technical quality. Full interview here.
  • Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few weeks, you've become aware that Real Madrid boasts arguably the most terrifying three-man attack in the world. The trio of Cristiano RonaldoKarim Benzema and Gareth Bale has scored 32 goals between the three of them with CR leading the way with 17 goals. Pretty impressive when you consider that Bale didn't have a proper preseason and missed a fair amount of time while Big Benz is prone to stretches of *ahem* less than inspired play.
