One must never count out Los Blancos. They stay in touch with leaders Atletico and FC Barcelona with a handy 2-0 win over Eibar. What made me cover this match was the back pass that nearly resulted in a comical own goal against Courtois. In football two things happen during back passed. Either the goalie calls for the ball or the defender shouts that he wants to give the goalie the ball. From what I see here there was no communication whatsoever between defender and goalkeeper. Courtois should thank his lucky stars he didn’t collide with that post whilst making that clearance off the line, he would have been seriously injured. Karim Benzema is red hot for Real ,he is blossoming being their go to striker. Some might say CR7’s move to Italy was Karim’s gain.
