Two lively cup semi-finals in Madrid midweek, especially in the Calderón stadium where Ayza Gámez sent off three players and awarded three penalties in the tie between Atlético and Sevilla. Fewer problems the day before for Clos Gómez in the latest "clásico" in the Bernabeu, although Barcelona felt that the referee could have protected Leo Messi better. The Argentinian superstar was so upset about all the hard tackles that he waited for Arbeloa in the car park after the match to complain, calling him "bobo" (stupid) in front of his wife, and the Catalan television channel produced a controversial video likening the treatment of Messi to a pack of hyenas hunting down their prey! (see link). Luckily we have a month for things to calm down before the second leg! (07.02.13)
