Madrid take the bite out of Suarez

The bite was taken out of Luis Suarez on Saturday as Real Madrid overpowered Barcelona in the first Clasico of the season.

The Uruguayan set up Neymar for the opening goal, but Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Pepe rendered it irrelevant as the hosts secured an impressive 3-1 win.

Peas release me: Chicharito leaves the bench behind

There's a new kid on the block at Real Madrid and he goes by the name of Chicharito.

The summer signing from Manchester United bagged two goals from the bench in Madrid's 8-2 demolition of Deportivo and could well have forced his way into Carlo Ancelotti's next starting XI.

That could mean the end for Karim Benzema's run in the team who missed out on the goalscoring party on Saturday as Gareth Bale (two), Cristiano Ronaldo (three), James Rodriguez (one) all found the net instead.

Benzema not affected by Madrid boos

Karim Benzema insists he is not affected by the jeers directed his way from Real Madrid fans.

The France international has been criticised for his early-season form but maintains that even the greatest players in Madrid's history have felt the wrath of the club's supporters.

"I am at a big club and there is always a lot expected of me. I am a Real Madrid striker and that means I have to score in every game. That’s the way it is," Benzema said.

"I was booed last season. Iker Casillas has been booed. All of the great players who have played for Madrid have been booed: Ronaldo, [Zinedine] Zidane...

"For me it’s not a problem. I will continue to work hard to change the situation."

Tired Costa run into the ground

Diego Costa may have made an electric start to his Chelsea career, leading the Premier League scoring charts already, but the Blues may struggle to rely on the Spain international for the whole season.

The Brazilian-born forward endured an injury-plagued end to last term with Atletico Madrid, which led to a miserable World Cup, and has been struggling with various problems in recent weeks, notably withdrawn from the Roja squad for their Euro 2016 qualifier.

Costa was then omitted from the starting XI to face Schalke on Wednesday night, with Jose Mourinho revealing that his star forward is unable to play so many games so close together as Chelsea prepare to wrap the 25-year-old in cotton wool.

"Diego Costa is not in a condition to play three matches in a week," said the Portuguese after the side's 1-1 draw with the Bundesliga strugglers.

"He has problems at this moment. When he plays one game he needs a week to recover to be in condition to play in the next game. We play now in midweek – he can’t do it."
On the other hand Real Madrid's Benzema and Liverpool's Balotelli finally scored their first goals this season in the Champions League opening.
