Close shave by the barber of Sevilla

Close shave by the barber of Sevilla

The heat is on! Spring has arrived in Spain and the temperatures are rising with each passing week in La Liga.

Earlier in the day Barca had done it's thing by dismissing relegation bound Cordoba and passed the hot potato back to Los Blancos. Except today there was no white in Seville, only black clad dragons trying to slay the knight who had not lost a game at home this season.

How might we accomplish this... hmmm... Let's use our heads... or rather the battering ram of CR7. Cristiano used his to score two of his three on the night.

The first was a sensational assist from Isco after a little disco move on the left side of the pitch near the end line. The second was a stab with the foot at close range after the flick on by Chicharito off of a feed from James. The final blow was delivered courtesy of a pin point pass by a yet to sweat Bale, who had only entered the game a few minutes prior to setting up the winning goal.

Mission accomplished, but not before some anxious moments and danger created by the barber from the south. Thankfully Saint Iker made an appearance and secured the 3 - 2 victory, the first by an opposing team in the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan this term.

Dragons over the knights this round and consider that potato lobbed back to Barcelona. It's gonna be a heck of an end to this years La Liga race, not to mention Champions League!

Sometimes it's hard to tell if the barber's blade is at your neck or finishing off a beautiful shave. We were smiling at the end of this one!

Let's pray for a couple of parties at Cibeles this spring!

Hala Madrid, y nada mas!
