Real lost to Valencia, 0-3 on the heels of their most humiliating loss at the Bernabeu in 38 years against Barca.
Ruben Baraja’s 68th minute goal reminded one of Michael Essien’s goal against Barca, a stunning volley that upended Iker Casillas. Before that Mata got the ball rolling as the Real defense fell like nine pins and then Silva’s speculative shot was parried by Casillas into goal.
It is clear Ramos will not be invited back as part of Florentino Perez’s vision of rebuilding Real. 9 goals in two matches to your rivals is not a resume builder. Tomorrow, Barca can win the title with a win at home against struggling Villareal.
