Also, some deny that report as well. Ronaldo hasn't said anything about it, neither has Real Madrid or any Spanish media. This was reported by some newspaper in Indonesia.

My bad
I remember reading about him and how he supported Palestine a couple years ago so I believed it

I also remember him donating to schools in Gaza last year

It's all good...just wasn't sure if was credible. It may very well be true, but I've not read anything official.

C-Ron has always been pretty low-key with his philanthropy efforts so I don't know if we'll ever get a concrete confirmation about this.

Why in gods name did Jorge Jesus have Oscar Cardozo, OUR LEADING GOAL SCORER, on the bench?!?!

It was one of those days though. Barca started their B team and we still couldnt score. Soooooooooooo many wasted chances.

Hope Messi is ok though. Hopefully its nothing that will keep him out for too long. I know tito wanted to get him a chance to score 85 goals but this was a meaningless game for them. He should have given him the rest. imo.

Yea, Benfica should have scored a couple of times. Poor finishing.

In games Messi is not starting, Pep and now Tito have almost always brought Messi in the the game late when playing at Camp Nou. They have said it's because many in the crowd have come only to see him and he can log in a few minutes. Though, that's a nice thought - it's a stupid strategy. I always hated it. I could understand in certain circumstances, but in a meaningless game - he should be in the stands, not on the bench.



News is - he is ok though. We will know more soon.

Messi plays and scores early TWICE to break the Gerd Muller's record. 86 goals in 2012 - f**kin' ridiculous!

MESSI

Messi scored 14 PK goals out of 90.

Messi re-signs with Barca till 2018


With La Liga in the bag...time to focus on Champions League! Great to see all La Liga teams advance in Champions League again this year!
