Liverpool has not been a real opponent for Madrid in any minute
If Anfield had to be the real test for Madrid before El Clasico, we have got a final answer: they are on fire. An outstanding match from Ancelotti's men that all the world saw before the big match on Saturday. Madrid only needed 45 minutes to win the match.
After a magical assist by James Rodríguez, Cristiano scored an amazing goal. Second and third were scored by French striker Karim Benzema.
Without Bale available Ancelotti put Isco in the midfield and Madrid had more possession and control.
Liverpool, without Sturridge but with Balotelli, didn't play his best game and were trashed since minute 0.
Anfield applauded Cristiano
Second half was like Barça's against Ajax. Madrid also thought about El Clasico. Liverpool had some chances but Casillas played a good match. Ancelotti made the necessary substitutions and reserved Cristiano, Kroos and Marcelo.
The Portuguese received an ovation from Anfield when he left to the bench. Everybody is ready. Saturday. 6pm. Madrid - Barça.
