Real Madrid 2 - 1 Juventus (Heart Classic Match 2013)

The fourth running of the Classic Match was a nice spectacle once again. The terraces in Santiago Bernabeu Stadium were yet again filled to bear witness this now traditional event for Real Madrid fans. The football played out on the turf in the Whites’ stadium did not disappoint and Real Madrid’s and Juventus’ former players showed off the quality that earned them all kinds of accolades throughout their playing careers. Figo broke the deadlock after six minutes by scoring from the edge of the area. In the second half there were two more goals. Montero equalised on 67 minutes and Ivan Perez decided the match in the 72nd. Cannavaro and Zidane added some fun to the occasion by playing with both teams.

The spectators gathered at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium enjoyed a unique spectacle: the Classic Match 2013 Veracruz. And, as in the previous three runnings, goals and solidarity played a prominent role. In fact, it took only six minutes for the first goal to arrive. Zidane connected with Figo and the Portuguese hit a low shot from the edge of the box which beat Tacconi. The match was not lacking the quality pieces of skill that Figo, Zidane, Roberto Carlos, Redondo, Davids, Nedved, Torricelli all possess ... back-heels, spectacular control and fantasy-world passes lifted the fans from their seats. There were no more goals in the first half, despite the countless chances that both teams had.

The second half was much like the first. Real Madrid, with Cannavaro in their ranks, dominated possession of the ball and had the clearer chances, but their opponents defended officiously and tried to play on the counter. The equaliser came following a nice one-two between Amoruso and Montero on the 67th minute. There were more than 20 minutes left, but it only took five for the Whites to regain the lead. Ivan Perez and Butragueno, who had only just entered the field of play, created the move. The first was the scorer and the second executed the measured pass for the assist. Cannavaro and Zidane added some fun to the occasion by playing with both teams in a match which saw three goals, lots of special moments of quality and even Butragueno's amazing header against the crossbar. It was what the occasion deserved.
