Barcelona Bayern MunichSpanish football has been enjoying an incredible run for some time. Teams like Real Madrid and Barcelona have shined on a global stage while sporting the world’s greatest players, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo to begin. Spain took the 2012 Euro Cup in dominating fashion, topping off a streak of major tournament championships including the 2010 World Cup and the 2008 Euros.

Bayern Munich smashed Barca in the first leg 4-0, and we may have all taken it as a farse. When Real Madrid were thumped 4-1 by German club Borussia Dortmund, we could have thought the same. After all, the same celebration and discussion took place after a game AC Milan team beat Barca 2-0 in their first Champions League leg. But the football world realigned itself after Barcelona responded with a 4-0 2nd leg to win 4-2 on aggregate.

  1. I wouldn’t go so far. Bayern may be the best team in the world right now, but a) Dortmund is losing Gotze and Lewandowski as well as possibly Reus and Hummels, so they may struggle next year. and b)Barcelona and Real Madrid prove year in and year out that they are some of the most active teams in the transfer market. They aren’t bad teams, they just have some holes that I expect to be filled with world-class additions. Down year for Spain? Yes. But I don’t think this is the watershed moment that people are making it out to be.

  2. I worry as the German league and national team seem to be so well financed compared to the Spanish league.
    Mou is clearly disliked at Real yet they cant afford to get rid of him? where will they be at the end of next year? is he professional enough to carry on building a squad that he doesn’t have the heart and commitment for?
