The Santiago Bernabéu passed sentence: in the first minute of the Real Madrid-Getafe clash, the president, Florentino Pérez could hear clearly how most of the crowd were chanting 'Florentino, resign'. The young spectators in the 'grada joven' drowned out the naysayers, and from that time on the complaints aimed at the presidential box died down, although the tension remained. The president's explanations after Wednesday's disaster at the Ramón de Carranza and the appalling image that the club is giving, as an institution, have got the majority of the fans up in arms.

At the beginning of the second half, the division at the Bernabéu made itself apparent again: while half the stadium started up with the 'Florentino, dimisión' chant again, the other half booed them. Real Madrid's crisis could put an end to the unity of the merengue fans.

Florentino was not the only one to be on the receiving end of a barracking. When the Bernabéu 'speaker' announced the line-up and the names of those on the bench, there were two names that were whistled: Rafa Benítez, who still does not have the approval of the Blanco fans, and Denis Cheryshev, whose bungle, namely not being aware of his disciplinary situation, has meant Madrid's elimination from the Copa del Rey, is neither forgiven nor gorgotten.

Karim Benzema's early goal, with barely four minutes gone, brightened the mood a little and the Santiago Bernabéu faithful turned their attention to what was happening on the field. The best news for the fans was, precisely that Benzema was back among the goals again, since on the quarter of an hour he completed his brace. The French striker's off-the-field troubles, with the sex-tape scandal involving his France team-mate, have been affecting his mental state and, despite the support he has been getting from his team-mates and the coaching staff, the goals he struck against Getafe have calmed him down and boosted his morale a little in what is turning out to be one of the most complicated years of his career.
