We do have our own players abroad thread but I guess there some times when certain players deserve more than that, so here's one of those moments. Unfortunately he didn't help his team to win, not even draw, as Real came back twice behind to win thanks to a last minute Zidane goal. But Benayoun once again played extremely well against Real. Last season he scored twice in two games against them and tonight he did it again, on a header too after 24 minutes (kind of funny to see him scoring a header - Mind you their defense also should be blamed for this ). Apart from the header, Benayoun totally bossed Racing's midfield in the first half, gave the visiting defense a major headache, but Real found the equaliser after another short man scored a header, this time it was Owen. So 1:1 at halftime. In the second half once again Benayoun was in control and a great pass ended up in a goal by Guerrero. From there on both teams had some chances to score, but the final word was Real's, Raul and and Zidane scored and gave Real the win. I think Awatt was OK, he can't really be blamed for any of their goals but I can't say he played amazing either. Racing is a very naive team with a terrible defense and I hope Benayoun finds a better team soon because Racing is getting too close into relegation trouble. I guess they too understand they wouldn't be able to hold onto Yossi much longer, and with the rumours about Liverpool, Bolton and Tottenham after him (apparently some scouts were watching him tonight) we could see a development sooner then expected.
