El Clasico was goalless, until the second half when Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hat-trick to destroy Barcelona at the Camp Nou…
But guys, don’t be quickly overjoyed! This only happened on Playstation 3, with FIFA 2010.
The real story is that Los Blancos’ striker Karim Benzema and the Catalans’ Xavi Hernandez played El Clasico online against each other as the recently released FIFA 10 was being launched.
Both players could see each other’s reactions during the encounter through a web camera and it was Karim Benzema who ended with more smiles.
At the press conference after the “El Clasico”, Karim Benzema stated:
“Despite the fact that it was just a video game, I’d like the outcome to be the same on the field [on Sunday evening].”
The real Cristiano Ronaldo has never scored against Barcelona.
During Manchester United’s 2008 Champions League semi-final at the Camp Nou, the Portuguese forward had the chance to do so from the spot kick. However, he blew his chance off by placing the ball wide.
For Karim Benzema, who operated Real Madrid’s win against Barcelona in the video game, “Cristiano is better in real life than he is in the game”.
If it so, can Cristiano Ronaldo surprise Barcelona with a hat-trick or at least one goal on Sunday evening?
You tell me your opinion:
