El Superclasico

Battle for first place in the West. Two teams that have to share facilities, that’s got to get annoying at times, especially if you lose when you play one another. So it was all to play for. A derby. Not quite on the level of the ones in the EPL, but the opening minutes were at a fast clip.

This Superclasico would end in a draw, but bubbled with intensity and there were some good moments from both sides. Sasha is an exciting player. Beckham is as good as it gets. Donovan needs a new challenge as he drifts in and out of the game. He must go over seas to play.
