Racing v. Madrid: Perfect result before facing Barca

This 2-0 is a fantastic result and I wouldn’t have changed anything from it. Not even our dull performance against a non existant Racing can change my mind that this was the perfect way to head into the ultra important El Classico match. I know many of you would have prefered for Madrid to have bombarded El Sardinero with a shower of goals and hell if our football would have shined it would have been a serious message of authority to the Catalan squad and a confident booster for us. However, I have noticed a pattern that whenever Madrid win by a large margin and get all praise from the press they tend to  get too cocky and end up looking like fools in their next match. It happened after the Sevilla remontada, where we faced Lyon believing that we were all that and instead ended up with cake on our faces. If I recall correctly we had the exact same experiences with Milan and the past season with Barcelona. Trust me, this humble and rather lazy result is what we needed to focus on our strengths and more importantly our weaknesses, and not fall into an ego trip. Our performance against Racing leaves us on our toes wanting to demonstate a more positive image and a greater motivation to show why we are the current leaders of La Liga (even if Alves is in denial). Plus, Racing were never really a measure for us and the most important thing was to come out of  el Sardinero with the three points and with all our players in one piece and injury free.

*Just wanted to add that although Canales had a relatively quiet evening I still find this kid to be a gem. One of the few players who tried to bring his team to life, but Canales lacked the partnership to explode and produce something extra. Moreover, if that vaselina would not have gone wide who knows what the final score would have been. Still, the audacity of the young Canales to bust out with la vaselina against his near  future team  is what leaves me very satisfied and certain that this kid was meant to dress in white.
