Real Madrid ripped apart Liverpool at Anfield with both European titans locking horns and facing off against each other in a Champions League match that had 3 points going in favor of the winning team.
41 minutes was the time that the Spanish club needed to secure the triumph with goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema turning the scoreboard into a comfortable 3-0 for Real Madrid and Liverpool could never really managed to respond or score any goals.
C.Ronaldo has now scored a total of 70 Champions League goals and is only one goal behind the leader Raul.
The team of Carlo Ancelotti remains undefeated in group B and has collected a total of 9 points meanwhile Liverpool, Basel and Ludogorets have picked up 3 points so far.
Real Madrid were the favorites on winning this match and it does not really come as a big surprise seeing C.Ronaldo and his colleges securing a convincing triumph. The real story which is making its way to headlines of newspapers and websites in the world of football is Mario Balotelli.
Mario Balotelli played for 46 minutes before being substituted out and replaced by Adam Lallana. The Italian forward could never really find his place in the match as he missed a few chances on scoring and continues his abysmal campaign with the jersey of Liverpool.
When the Italian attacker was exiting the pitch, he decided to swap shirts with Real Madrid’s Pepe and this actually was the most memorable thing that Balotelli did in the entire match as he was almost invisible in the playing grounds.
It still hasn’t even been 3 months since Mario Balotelli completed his transfer from Ac.Milan to Liverpool for a fee of €16 million but fans are starting to consider that money to be a waste, money that wasn’t well spent for a player that has been doing nothing but disappointing in all aspects of the game and is not showing any signs of life in his new club.
