Levante-Real Madrid Without goal or leadership

first_imgThe advantage of Madrid is over, which will reach the Classic with the water around the neck and without leadership to cushion its fall. It was after an hour of dominance without bullets and a final stretch where all the ghosts of the past appeared: an alarming lack of auction, an extremely long team and an excessively confident Courtois. The Levant won the battle of the resistance until the goal of Morales arrived, many times guardian angel.Even with the provisional leadership of Barça, still dressed in an alignment full of honors, still convicted of the painful draw against Celta, Madrid did not have the explosive exit that deserved the case. El Levante de Paco López is a more adventurous team than his classification and budget say and he was not impressed by Madrid or his own and other people’s needs. Lopez got two points, Roger Martí and Mayoral, and the two wings with the most flight of the squad, Bardhi and Morales. The plan was a care with Madrid from the beginning.Zidane also left nothing in the pantry with the exceptions of Valverde and Mendy, threatened with suspension. That allowed him to repeat Marcelo, who makes his band more elastic and less resistant, and gave Isco another chance, that violin that as soon as it sounds silent. The other nine, except for mishap, will be on that double ride among crocodiles next week.With some and with little other precautions, an open field match was left, presumably more inclined to Madrid, superior in the punch, although in recent times the consumption of goals has plummeted. In five minutes he concentrated his fire on the Aitor area. The goal stopped two shots to Benzema and Modric and then went to put his fists and ended up putting his leg in a clearance that could end up at his door if Casemiro has more tub in his head pumped. On the other side, everything was almost, in well-intentioned shipments of Bardhi and Morales that nobody attended. There was the feeling that there was more energy than results in the game Granota, team in which Campaign puts all the music. There he plays what he decides. A football player who does not release the baton. However, his good handling of the situation did not prevent the party from drifting towards the Aitor area, besieged in the last minutes of the first half. Benzema scored a goal because, before the goal, he did not throw or pass. And without respite, Aitor took out a Modric missile. The Levant reached the middle of the cat.Of more lessAnd so it went on in the second half. The Levant was wrapped in the last quarter of the field, confident in its defensive strength and the very low definition of Madrid, one more night with more play than fang. Isco opened all the lines of investigation between the behind granota without finding a single space. And when it appeared, there was no success in the auctioneers. Marcelo got Hazard a first pass that the Belgian could not tame in his solo gallop against Aitor and ended up disastrously finishing off. Almost immediately he had to leave, injured. Madrid also claimed a penalty by Campaña, one of those who whistle or not according to what the referee and VAR have received. The draw was ending the caution of Madrid, which began to become dangerously long and vulnerable.Zidane looked outside for what was inside, with Lucas Vázquez on one side and a huge Vinicius on the other. But then the team was already another, less dominant and more exposed. And in those, Morales grabbed an impressive left-handed, far and not too much angle, for the first stick he caught in Babia to Courtois. It was the end of Madrid, of his leadership and of that sense of security with which he had walked in recent months. The Classic is already life or death.last_img read more

FIFA has a Marshall Plan

first_imgThe ECA, chaired by Andrea Agnelli, top manager of Juventus and that groups 200 clubs, forwarded a letter warning of the magnitude of the crisis: “We face a real existential threat. Soccer is now at a standstill in our income streams, which is where we pay our players, staff and other operating expenses. No one is immune. This is the greatest challenge that ours has ever faced. “Now, FIFA wants to pull one of the largest cash reserves among world sports organizations and use it to protect the industry, similar to what governments around the world have done to try to stop the effects of the pandemic.The numbersAccording to its latest annual report, published last year, lFIFA had cash reserves of $ 2.74 billion (2,460 million euros). The organization is considering using part of this reserve to help soccer in this crisis and also is willing to advance money from upcoming television contracts and sponsorship proceeds to create a “soccer relief fund.”This background would require the approval of the FIFA Executive Committee, a group of 36 members from the six regional confederations. The fund would be administered differently than the current structure, in which $ 6 million is awarded every four years to each of its 211 member associations, regardless of their size and needs.FIFA is evaluating the short and medium term effects of coronavirus in world football in order to find out how it can help member associations.

In the Bundesliga, footballers are lowering their wages by between 20% and 30%. In Italy, teams like Juventus have already agreed to cut wages. And the Premier is also looking for a general discount.“FIFA is in a solid financial position and it is our duty to do everything possible to assist them in this time of need,” The organization said in a statement Tuesday. “Therefore, we confirm that FIFA is working on various options to provide assistance to the soccer community worldwide after making a full assessment of the financial impact this pandemic will have on soccer.”last_img read more

Setien dreams of Fabián

first_imgHidden behind the noise of the big names of the summer, Neymar and Lautaro Martínez, Barça has decided for months to sign a young midfielder of level to cover the outings sung by Ivan Rakitic and Arturo Vidal this summer. At 32 years old, the Croatian, and almost 33 years old, the Chilean, his farewell to the Catalan team is sung. Despite the fact that Aleñá will return from his assignment at Betis and that an attempt will be made to give the last push to Riqui Puig and Collado, the technical secretary of Barça wants to give a boost to the midfielder with a total midfielder. You need legs.Fabián is the preferred one. Raised in the arms of Setién, who gave him the fame, the Cantabrian would be delighted with the signing of a player who has already been sought twice by Barça before his arrival (Robert thought about his incorporation in the summer of 2017 but finally backed down; and previously he could even play for Barça B). Fabián embodies all the characteristics that Abidal and Ramon Planes pursue. The best player of the past U-21 Euro Cup has good ball treatment, good association capacity, tactical sense, defensive effort, route, arrival, goal … In addition, he would not need adaptation. Know by heart the tastes of the current Barcelona coach. Madrid also claims it, although Ceballos’ example can make you think. Fabián, who turns 24 today, is curdled and ready to take the leap.Barça also sees him as a good travel companion for De Jong, only a year younger than him. That while waiting for the explosion of Arthur, born midfielder, like Fabián, in 1996 and that will continue next season. Barça could change a midfield formed by Busquets, Rakitic and Vidal, with an average age of 32 (the one who played in Liverpool) for one in which De Jong, Fabián and Arthur, with an average age of less than 24 years, play. Fabián is the preferred one. However, Barça monitors other names in case Naples does not authorize their transfer or the player, with a multitude of offers, chooses another destination. Eduardo Camavinga is the new pearl of French football. At just 17 years old, he has Europe behind him and his agent is the same as Ousmane Dembélé. There are more players to like Barça. Young, of good stride and excellent conditions: Bentancur (1997), Juventus roadrunner in a certain similarity with Valverde, would not see a change of course with bad eyes. Barella is another one of the players who have liked Barça this year when they have measured Inter. The technical secretariat, meanwhile, continues to draw the robot portrait of the perfect midfielder. In all the strokes, who comes out is Fabián.last_img read more

Haaland gives clues to Madrid

first_img“There are many factors and I remember that when we talked about Salzburg and different clubs we discovered very early that Salzburg was the best option,” Haaland continued, evaluating what matters in a transfer. “And I always thought: ‘I cannot overvalue myself.’ That has always been important to me, saying, ‘Yes, I am good, but there are many good players,’ so it has always been very important to me, not to think that I am better than I really am. “Was finally the Borussia who bet heavily on the Norwegian. He paid 20 million euros to Salzburg and another 23 in commissions: eight for the player’s father and 15 for his representative, Mino Raiola. Now he charges 4.5 million euros gross per season. Without a doubt, he has the profile to wear the Madrid shirt. In that sense, regarding Haaland’s willingness to go to Madrid, the striker himself gave clues in a recent interview with Eurosport Norway. Those statements, which we now rescue, went a bit unnoticed: “Before choosing which club you are going to, you have to measure how good you are, how good the club is, the people there, how they take care of you, how they help you evolve …” That is the key, “evolution”, as sources close to the team that manages the player’s career have told AS. “Haaland needs to keep playing to progress,” they tell us. Can Madrid secure minutes for a 19-year-old boy? Jovic, with 21, has had few opportunities beyond that he did not take advantage of what he has had (2 goals in 24 games). He can become, along with Pogba, the man of this summer at Real Madrid. At 19 Haaland It has amazed the world just after being transferred to Dortmund with whom he has played eleven games and scored twelve goals already. Real Madrid closely follows its evolution. He needs to sign a guarantee forward after Jovic’s fiasco (60 million). Madrid know that Haaland will have a 75 million euro withdrawal clause from the 2020-21 winter market, but also that Borussia will most likely accept this summer an offer for little more money. The will of the player, very close to Odegaard, would be the key. And Florentino’s relationship with Watzke, CEO of Borussia, excellent.last_img read more
