“If you don’t like Luka Modric, something’s wrong with you. What a player.” — The first decent thing my commentators have said all night. (via dcwney)

Real Madrid 1-0 Bayern Munich
19’ Karim Benzema

I have never played against anybody like that in my life

"He came very close to scoring several times throughout the game, but eventually found the back of the net as a grand finale, precisely when his team were struggling the most. Gareth Bale put away one of those goals that mark a player’s career, that prove their worth.” - Marca

Real Madrid vs Barcelona - 16/04/14
(2-1) - Di Maria 11’ & Bale 85’ 

I decided to put together a master post for all things related to the Copa del Rey final because a) I’m weird like that & b) so I can share everything I’ve complied in one place. Here you will find links for the match, pics, videos & more. Hala Madrid!!!!

MatchSpanish Audio + English Audio | [Rojadirecta

Celebrations - Includes trophy presentation & Real Madrid on the pitch. [Sockshare]

Cibeles - I have two options for viewing or downloading the RMTV stream of Cibeles. The first is a video I put together of two Youtube videos that were uploaded. I joined them together & uploaded it to both to download & Vimeo for viewing. It’s of lower quality but smaller file size [300mb] for anyone with slow internets. The second option is a 1.08gb video of the same stream, of a bit better quality [on Youtube it was 720p], it’s not quite HD but is the best stream at the moment. 

Option 1: (Download + Stream) | Option 2: (Download + Stream)

Videos - Includes videos of the match, celebrations, Cibeles and more. [Link]

Pictures - Most of these pics are of HQ quality (1280px+) but there are a few non HQ ones in the bunch. I’ve separated them into three sections: Partido (for all pre-match and match pictures), Celebración (for all post match pictures including on pitch celebrations & the locker room) and Cibeles (this is pretty self explanatory). You can browse through the galleries on imgbox or download .zip files of each! All galleries that these pictures came from can be found in the post here and additional pictures came from the lovely tumblr user gfsports (who you all should follow if you aren’t already!).
