1-2 Real d. Zenit
Who again? Why, Ruud of course. Real hadn't won away from home in the Champions for something like 4 years, but tonight earned an efficient 1-2 victory over Moscow's Zenit with Euro star Arshavin. From reports it sounds like Zenit outplayed los Merengues, but who cares? An away win is just that. I was surprised that, with all the talk of Higuain and Raul, Real played Ruud up top as normal, and behind him, Robben, Higuain and VdV. For those 3 were substituded Drenthe, Saviola and Javi Garcia, with only Javi Garcia getting any real playing time. Oh well Sr. Astro Raul, times change, and if the team can keep on keeping on, then it's alright.
