This weekend was a weekend of comebacks as Kaka last seen in the year 156 BC crossing the frozen Pyrenees with Hannibal’s army announced his return with two goals and two assists. Gonzalo Higuain, a little less distant in working memory scored a hattrick. Karim Benzema also joined in the goalfest. It was a touching sight to see all three share in the good vibes.
Real went up 5-0 on the board before Valencia registered their first goal through Soldado. The other goalscorers were Jonas and Jordi Alba but it was too little too late. The return to the Mestalla within a week proved to be a happy one once again for the Merengues. The only one looking a bit miffed was Iker Casillas, victimized by some easy giveaways.
More importantly, Real come into the crucial Champions League encounter with nemesis Barca this Wednesday riding some real momentum.
