This week on Kicking it with Raphael I was joined by Xoel Cardenas from Bleacher Report. Xoel and I discussed how La Liga's teams are faring in the Champions League. We then covered Spain's huge victory over France in the World Cup Qualifiers. Xoel and I drifted and discussed the future of Malaga and former Real manager Manuel Pellegrini. As usual I welcomed Fox Soccer's Marc Serber on the show. We talked about the great derby match between City and United and why City have struggled all season. We then focused on all of the Champions League fixtures and finished the show off discussing Mario Balotelli latest knuckle head move.
