Atlético wins the sprint

first_imgGoals0-1, 45 ‘: Koke, 1-1, 50 ‘: Messi, 2-1, 61 ‘: Griezmann, 2-2, 80 ‘: Morata, 2-3, 85 ‘: belt After an epic semifinal, Atlético de Madrid showed that to resist is to win and qualified for the Super Cup final against Real Madrid after defeating Barcelona 2-3. The Cholo endured a shower of football from the Catalans during much of the game commanded by a huge Messi, but between Oblak, the VAR, the errors behind and the faith of Atlético the mattresses had a decisive final sprint and won their prize against an exhausted Barça.Valverde ended all speculation about the possibility of giving relief in the eleventh Barça holder to play the semifinal of this competition, which already made it clear that he does not like a hair and opted for the ‘Toshack path’, the same always. And between ‘themselves’ and ‘always’ put the epithet they consider. The only concession was to include Umtiti, who had a tachycardia match, in the initial eleven against an Atletico in which he highlighted the inclusion of Savic in the initial eleven. The rest, as planned considering that Koke, did not arrive for 90 minutes.After a few first minutes in which Correa gave Umtiti a very bad life, Barça took control of the game in an absolute way, but he lacked to kill when Atlético was more acclaimed, who trusted everything to the colossal figure of Oblak. The goalkeeper of Atletico avoided Messi’s goal in 22 minutes after combining with Alba, in 40 he made it clear that he knows all the tricks of Griezmann when the French faced him in the one on one and a minute later he cut making the difficult easy a shot at the first touch of Suarez. ChangesKoke (45 ‘, Héctor Herrera), Vitolo (66 ‘, Renan Augusto), Marcos Llorente (71 ‘, Koke), Rakitic (85 ‘, Busquets), Ansu Fati (87 ‘, Frenkie De Jong) Simeone was the first to move piece and his change was providential since Koke, who had entered by Herrera turned the first ball he touched into goal at the end of a play in which Joao raffled off Arturo Vidal with Umtiti absolutely misplaced. It took 20 seconds of the second half and Barça had to row again against the current. Faced with the blow, Valverde pulled from manual, in plan ‘in case of emergency, break the glass’ put Ansu to warm up, but in the interim, Messi took two rebounds against Savic and Koke, very soft, and tied the game with the right five minutes later. Not even Oblak, who was in Zamora mode, came to his shot. The giant mattress did not collapse, which five minutes later frustrated Griezmann’s goal again. The ‘try again’ poster came out again. He was successfully tested by Messi again, but the VAR annulled his second goal based on the rule that any hand in attack is a goal. He did not discourage that from an unchained Barça who scored the second minute after Griezmann invalidated the nth inning Oblak miracle at the end of Suarez. After trying so much, the goal ended up coming.Seeing that he was behind on the scoreboard Simeone withdrew Lodi to place Saul as a side, but his plan was frustrated when Koke was injured at 20 minutes and Marcos Llorente was replaced, which in his first action saw yellow. From that fault, another goal by Piqué was annulled by a VAR that valued Vidal’s shoulder more than Felipe’s hand, which enabled him.Clearer was the penalty that Netto committed on Vitolo after loss of Busquets that Morata converted in the tie ten minutes from the end. Ten minutes of madness in which Piqué’s penalty was requested and in the face of chaos, Correa sentenced the game after Morata’s play leaving the best Barça of the season drowned on the shore. The sprint was from Atlético. The trident in the middle of Barça tried his luck in the raffle and Oblak thwarted his attempts with the sign that ‘try it again, luckier next time’. It was a game that was already clear in that first part that he was going to have to fight from end to end. With an intensity that left the semifinal of the previous day between Valencia and Madrid at the level of a preseason game.Barca dominated the game and possession, but Atlético resisted and sought their options either from afar or at a stopped ball. Thomas tried it from a distance and Herrera stopped the ball in a very close side foul. Net was perfect in both attempts.It remained to be seen if Barça, which is accustomed to sudden blackouts, was going to last the gasoline during the 90 minutes before an Atletico who gave the feeling of being reserved for what could happen. The Cholo left the first half alive above the game, in which Barcelona prevailed, but the tension was palpable. For proof, the three cards showed by the referee on the way to changing rooms in the middle after a brawl between Joao and Alba to which Messi was added. None of the three saw card, but the defenders of the companions (Savic, Saul and Luis Suarez) went to the locker room with a yellow in a prelude of a second part that ventured vertigo.

Rubén García: “We are confident and we will go for the game”

first_imgNo doubt in Pamplona it is the game of the year, it is different. We have to assimilate that, if all the matches are important, we have to give this a bonus, especially at the mental level. There are three points at stake and we are going to measure eleven against eleven, but we already know what it means to measure yourself to such a team, and more belonging to Osasuna. There is a certain rivalry.As for the environment, what do you expect?I know that for the fans it is an important game and that they live it in a special way. We also have to give this meeting the importance it has.Real Madrid has been measured a few times …Yes. I don’t know how many times exactly but I have measured them a few times. In my first year in Levante I played against them. Then Mourinho trained him and there were Xabi Alonso, Cristiano, Higuain … It was a different time than now. It’s always nice to be able to play against players like that. I remember a game at the Bernabéu, in which in the 40th minute we were winning zero one and we ended up losing four to one. In a couple of plays they made the game. The Bernabéu squeezes a lot. It is a very complicated field.He has pending feeling what it is to beat Madrid and mark him.Yes. With the Levant I don’t remember winning them. I remember two games at home, which we were winning and in the absence of two minutes we had the victory. It would be nice to win and also these types of victories usually have a lot of impact.What would it mean for you to mark Real Madrid?Beyond marking Madrid, I would be happy that it was a goal that would help the team. If the goal were victorious, it would be special. Not only for beating Madrid, which is a challenge, but the really important thing would be to be able to help the team with three points. It would be a step forward and be closer to the goal. It will be very complicated, but it will be tried. Where do you think is the greatest danger of the Zidane team?On an offensive level they are doing very well, they are making many goals and also these great teams, when they catch good streaks, they usually fit very few. It has very effective players above, which overflow a lot and closing behind makes it very difficult to beat them. In El Bernabéu they have already shown us that it is not easy to create opportunities and harm them and here they will come with the same intention. It is true that we play at home, before our fans, and we have a lot of confidence in us and we will go for the game.Which Madrid player do you see better at this time?I think one of the key pieces is Casemiro, in the midfield. Beyond travel, effort and disputes, I think it is the team’s stopwatch and who stabilizes it. He gives it a lot of contention and for teams like that, players like him are key.If I could, which Madrid player would Osasuna be brought to?I could not tell you. We have the players we want. It is not only a matter of what a player can contribute in the field, it is also necessary to adapt to the costumes and grace to God in Osasuna everyone is very adapted. It is true that I could choose any player, there are so many good in Madrid that I would not know how to say one.You have already shown that you are able to face any team and more in El Sadar.We are aware of the connection we have with the fans and everything we have done. But it is of little use to think now of everything we have done if we do not succeed in trusting ourselves and our possibilities. We may not be at our best in terms of sensations and security in the field, but we are not going to go crazy now for losing some games, nor could we think we had everything done when we had that good run. We have to keep trying to improve and I think we can do something nice.Osasuna usually presses very high. Can a team like Madrid be played like this?Yes. He is a rival who dominates all tactical variants and at the offensive level. We may be ourselves, but we must also be aware that we will have to do many things well and be very focused to be able to harm them. They are a rival that, with little, can do you a lot.On a personal level, how are you feeling?In pre-season I had discomfort in the pubis. With work and insistence I have been improving, although it is an injury with which you have to continue working and strengthening. I have gone from less to more, finding myself great. In these last games I am playing more than half a point, a position in which I already played last year. I am happy to participate and continue contributing things to the team, with goals or assists. I’m very happy.It has been rumored that in the winter market some team tempted him …I have read something. In the world of football there are these things that are a bit more extra-sports. I don’t like being aware of these things, I usually handle them through representatives. You get things but I have been focused at all times and at no time I thought about leaving. When you are happy in a place and you feel the confidence and you are in fullness, you do not look beyond to continue contributing things and to continue working.What have you found in Osasuna that you have not found in other equipment?I have found something very important, which is emotional stability, beyond football. This is something fundamental to be happy and then translate it on the pitch and to be in life, and in the day to day, oneself. When you arrive at a new place you have doubts and do not know what awaits you. I was lucky to get it right and find the right place. I am very happy and I think that people who know me notice it and those who see me on a sporting level think that they see me comfortable in the field. This serves to keep growing and be better every day. Do they face the week differently or is it more the media fuss that forms?The players don’t realize that much. You focus on making it one more week of work, to improve and to work to the fullest. But it is true that around you notice something different. We try to avoid everything that surrounds it and focus on day to day.He is going to play his first Osasuna- Real Madrid in El Sadar …center_img It is one of the key pieces of the Arrasate team. Its quality does not go unnoticed and in fact the rumor mill says that some team tempted him in the winter market. However, Rubén García does not think of anything other than Osasuna, where he has found stability on and off the pitch. He knows that Madrid will make it difficult for him, but he fully trusts the possibilities of his team.Real Madrid arrives at El Sadar, is it a special match?It is always special to play against Real Madrid, even more so when it becomes the leader. It is a meeting that El Sadar lives a lot and we, as players, also like it. It is a beautiful game that everyone wants to play.last_img read more

Messi against ghosts – AS.com

first_imgThe Barça from Messi arrives at Maradona temple with many tasks to accomplish and traumas to overcome (follow the game live on As.com). Barcelona returns to the maximum European competition (9:00 p.m., San Paolo, Movistar Champions League) with a depleted equipment, with the ghost of the debacles of Rome Y Liverpool still stinging and with the doubt of how the Setién team in his first European contest against a rival in clear progression.Further, Naples he has taken the game as a liturgy. The return of God’s successor Maradona, whose presence is still alive in each corner of the city and where he is venerated as a saint, he gives the party a special air. In Naples everything is grandiloquent: the carnival, the celebration of the prodigy of San Gennaro, traffic, food, Life in short. And football could not remain in the background to this celebration. Less when the Barcelona to San Paolo. Blaugrana are considered a “team friend” by the demanding Neapolitan fan, which does not mean in the least that there will be no kind of clemency, but get awayto of the hostility that the great enemies receive. That kind of visceral hatred is reserved for teams like the Juventus or those of northern Italy. Therefore, to Messi he was received as a hero upon arrival at the hotel, but during the game San Paolo will roar. And there will come the first test for Barcelona, ​​which in addition to compete with your legs, you should do it with head. The Blaugrana team aspires to take off once and for all from above the slab of falling before ehellish scenarios. Over the past few years, the Champions League has gone to Barça through the sump in disconnection moments in Turin, Rome or Liverpool (not to mention the Paris disaster that he fixed on the turn) who have left their scar on the team. Said Setien in the previous press conference that of those experiences barely talk in the dressing room. They are like those bitter memories that are there and that nobody wants to remember, but that one day or another must be overcome. It may be Messi the one who took the first step to overcome the trauma when last week he said that the Barcelona team, because of its current status, does not seem to be the favorite to win the Champions League.A realism exercise and a good way to free yourself from a responsibility that has crushed the Blaugrana in the last three seasons. For face your first duel from Champions, Setien arrives with nothing, 14 players of the first team. The last injuries from Jordi Alba and of Sergi Roberto They leave the marked cards. A defense with Semedo, Piqué, Lenglet and Junior; midfield for Busquets, Arthur and De Jong and Arturo Vidal supporting in attack to Messi and Griezmann.In Naples, Gattuso He puts on the sheepskin he never used when he was a great Milan player to praise Barça de Setién. They say that prepare a “cage” to control Messi, who will play guarded by his markers and the shadow omnipresent Diego.last_img read more

Stop for marathon runner Saúl

first_imgA physical wonder that has slowed down his progression, like that of the other footballers, due to the coronavirus pandemic that is ravaging the planet. An indefatigable Saúl that besides being indisputable for Cholo it is his wild card on the field. A patch that feels more comfortable playing midfield, as it has done regularly throughout the year, but can cover any of the bands, the left side, as he did again in the last league game against Sevilla and who has also come to exercise as central. The break can serve Saúl to recharge batteries and reach the end of the season like new when the competitions restart. In the last match played, the midfielder again made clear at Anfield that his physical deployment is essential for the team. Keep in mind that Saúl has played more than Oblak himself. Slovenian meta too He has been in eleven in 37 of Atlético’s 38 games this year, resting by technical decision against Cultural Leonesa, but unlike ‘8’ he did have to be substituted in one, at Reale Arena after suffering a hard blow to the auction that ended up assuming the second goal of Real Sociedad. In total Oblak has played 3,366 minutes, the second most of the team.The podium in terms of participation Thomas closes it, although already at a wide distance from the two leaders with 2,859 minutes. The signing that has played the most in Atlético is Philip, the great feeling of the team that has become a real wall in the center of defense. So what the Brazilian started the course as a central quarter in the squad and playing only one minute between the first five games, but since he managed to make a place for himself in the starting lineup, there is no one who threatens his power behind. Felipe is fourth on the list with 2,791 minutes. They come from behind Koke (2,605), Lodi (2,500), Morata (2,303), Correa (2,248), Trippier (2,187) and João Félix (2,114), all of them above 2,000 minutes. Saúl, like the rest of the staff, works alone at home so as not to lose an iota of his condition in a way that has allowed him to always be on the pitch except for disciplinary reasons. Saúl himself pointed out last Thursday in AS that “like everyone. We have no other choice. We have to be responsible and pay attention. You don’t have to leave home at all. It will have consequences, that is clear. But you have to have great mental strength to endure and not leave the home. “Now cross off the days to be able to continue accumulating minutes and kilometers as one of the most essential pieces for Atlético de Simeone. Saúl Ñíguez started the month of March celebrating eight years since his debut with Atlético’s first team. On March 8, 2012, at just 17 years old, the midfielder entered the Vicente Calderón pitch in the 84th minute to give Koke rest and take his first steps as a mattress maker in the round of 16 of the Europa League against Besiktas (3-1). A very significant substitution between two of Simeone’s untouchables. If the captain was irreplaceable during his injury leave, Saúl directly has lost just 90 minutes in the entire season and it was by sanction in the tie in Granada (1-1) after seeing his fifth yellow card in the League against Espanyol. That is to say, the ‘8’ has been on the field in 3,420 of the 3,510 minutes that Atlético has played this course among all competitions, with three extensions included (final of the Spanish Super Cup against Real Madrid, Copa del Rey against Cultural Leonesa and Champions against Liverpool). last_img read more

Barça will present a “partial” ERTE to employees on Monday

first_imgBarcelona will deliver the documentation of the temporary business regulation file (ERTE) for non-sports employees to the Department of Treball of the Generalitat on Monday, April 6. This was announced to the members of the Committee by the head of human resources of the club in a telematic meeting called for this Friday.The novelty is that ERTE will not affect all workers, since the club has promised that “Those who are carrying out a 100% teleworking day” will be exempt. In fact, the Catalan entity openly talks about a “partial” ERTE.In any case, It will not be until Monday that the Company Committee receives the documentation of the employment regulation file and can make a complete assessment of the degree of affectation of the same in workers. The Company Committee wanted to recall in the statement the entity’s “commitment” that “the affected personnel have guaranteed 100% of their salary thanks to the additional contribution of the first-team soccer team”.It must be remembered that last Tuesday the club already delivered the file that affected the professional athletes of the sections, grassroots and women’s football, for which the majority saw their salaries reduced by 70%, less in grassroots football than the reduction was limited to 30%. The only ones exempt from ERTE were the first team players, who reached an agreement with the club to lower their salary by 70% while the state of alarm lasts, in addition to adding an additional 2% so that employees can receive 100% of your payroll during confinement.last_img read more

James Rodríguez, the Premier League and Serie A await you

first_imgJames Rodríguez is very close to finishing his second stage at Real Madrid. Zidane does not have the Colombian for his next project (Odegaard has advanced his preferences in every way) and 10 of the coffee selection You already know that in summer, once you know how this course ends, you have free access to find equipment. There are two powerful markets waiting for you with open arms: Italy and England.In Serie A he has two teams that especially like James’ exquisite left foot. Napoli, who almost signed him last season (Madrid asked for a transfer and the Neapolitans wanted a transfer with the right to buy), and Juventus. There is his friend and ex-partner Cristiano, with whom he also shares an agent (Jorge Mendes). James has a football in the three-quarter line that the bianconeri could use very well and the Portuguese crack, if he is finally still in Turin, would help him in his adaptation to make him feel at home. The Colombian also has a market in the Premier, which will turn 29 on July 12. Manchester United has already been interested in his situationGiven that Old Trafford’s players cannot continue accumulating failures and they need two or three renowned signings that provide their main deficiency: quality and touch football. Curiously, Pogba could exchange his destination route with the left-hander from Cúcuta. Also in the Premier Everton asked about his situation, given that just with Ancelotti James had in Madrid his best football year (2014-15).Madrid know they are in a good position, given that even though James only has one year left on his contract (it ends in 2021), his listing at Transfermarkt remains at an acceptable figure: 40 million. It, added to his annual record (7 net) would allow the club to get good money for the Colombian knowing that if he stayed he would hardly count for Zidane and on January 1 he could negotiate with any club to leave for free within a yearor. An option that right now neither the entity nor the player himself values. James reaches his final point with Madrid, which he reached in the summer of 2014 as the Golden Boot of the World Cup in Brazil (6 goals).last_img read more

Gameiro: last chance to recover part of the investment

first_imgThe striker is still an appetizing player on the market. Last January he had offers from French clubs although he did not want to leave and decided to end the season at Valencia. Once this season ends, the situation will be different. If a club offers you more than a year of contract and Valencia agrees, the Frenchman could pack and leave Valencia. Otherwise, he would fulfill his contract since, at the moment, Valencia has not told him anything about a possible renewal. Because, Valencia must move tab in the next market, which, among other things, does not know when it will be, due to the change of date that the 2019-20 season will have. Valencia still must amortize next year 5.3 million of the signing of the French, so at least you must take out this amount to avoid incurring losses. In the sports field, Gameiro is amortized. It was one of the protagonists in the Copa del Rey that Valencia lifted last year and its performance, in general terms, has been good. Valencia paid Atlético 16 million euros in the summer of 2018, for the transfer of Kevin Gameiro. The French He will be 33 in just one month and ends his contract in June 2021. Because, Valencia has in the next transfer window the last chance to recover part of that investment. If it is not transferred, it will fulfill its contract and will leave free a few months later. The case is similar, in terms of contract termination and the footballer’s age, to that of Garay, who is currently seriously injured and with a contract that ends in two and a half months.last_img read more
