It was clasico weekend in Spain last week. Here are the highlights of this great match.

Barcelona 3 Real Madrid 3 

That’s nine minutes of awesome right there.

Atletico won; Sevilla was upset by Nastic (trippy video, too); Valencia drew with Osasuana; Nothing else really matters.

It was a cup weekend this past week, with Manchester United and Chelsea still planning on that dream final at the new Wembley, which by the way looks incredible (as should a stadium that has cost well over a billion dollars)

On top of that we had the Manchester United against the ‘Rest Of The World XI’ featuring C. Ronaldo and Rooney for Man U and Zlatan Imbrahimovic, Marco Materazzi, Steven Gerrard and Mancini from the rest of the world……and a couple of midweek Premiership games to boot

 

FA CUP

Chelsea 3-3 Tottenham

An incredible fight back from Chelsea to claim a replay at White Hart Lane thanks to a late Salomon Kalou strike

Middlesbrough 2-2 Manchester United

A harshly awarded Ronaldo penalty means a replay at Old Trafford will see who goes through to the next round

Blackburn 2-0 Man City

Plymouth Argyle 0-1 Watford

Charity Match

Manchester United 4-3 World XI http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XiowjlCx3pc&eurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Efootytube%2Ecom%2F

Almost like an NBA All Star game with some of the best players in the world playing in an exhibition match- worth watching for the awesome Ronaldo free kick

Premier League

Aston Villa 0-1 Arsenal
