Valencia-Real Madrid Madrid Olympic dance

first_imgMadrid perfected the victory theorem without strikers. Zidane put one, Jovic, and the game did not go through him. His invisibility was the only adverse news in a team that ended up in ballet. He had a free field center as numerous as it was versatile: Precise and cunning Kroos, airtight Casemiro, Herculean Valverde and ornamental Isco and Modric. But those of both conditions made art of a first pressure on a suffocated, non-existent Valencia. What started with an Olympic goal ended up in the Madrid’s most choral Olympic dance that is remembered.The concentration of casualties in attack and a general and extreme high of prudence they filled the midfielders game, clear invitation to rhetoric. Five per head, with Valencia trivote, and some assumed loneliness of Gameiro and Jovic on the other side of the field. Two attackers of different species. A mobile target the Valencianist, useful in the game to space and with the ability to start long; a piece of artillery fixed the madridista, lamb out of the area, unpublished wolf when he steps on it.It was Zidane’s, without Benzema, his goal donor, a bet on the past, without Rodrygo or Vinicius. The first lacks daring; on the second, pack their good intentions in the goal. He decided on a company of revitalized veterans and from the trade he took the goal that changed everything, the goal of Origi without Origi at Barça in Liverpool. Gil Manzano kicked a corner to the left of the Madrid attack. There came Kroos. The goal was deserted because Jaume took his eyes off the ball by ordering his centrals. The lack of attackers from Madrid, even to reach the area, did not alert him to the danger. Kroos had head to see the carelessness and foot to try the Olympic goal. When Jaume wanted to return, he put his arms awkwardly and the ball ended up inside. The goal was the perfect crossing of an occurrence and a huge loss. Olympians were the one and the other.Before the invention, Madrid had already thrown the tie at the game since a careful elaboration, sufficient pressure in the opposite field and a defense away from Courtois. That start gave him a free header from Varane rejected by Jaume and a distant shot from Valverde.Valencia had already successfully tried to play Madrid with a tip, plus Ferran Torres, in December. This time, without Mestalla in the cogote of Madrid, it didn’t work out. And it is that Zidane, now yes, has lifted his work from back to front. From the Madrid of action of the last decades, which entered shots in the matches even at the cost of finishing more than once on the ground, this group has been ordered, methodical, cerebral, sealed with lime and song. Something seems to tell him that the 50 goals Cristiano took must be saved backBecause Benzema is on the limit, Bale has long since abdicated like a dolphin and Jovic is still behind a mask. In Jeddah he was again figurative. ChangesMaxi Gomez (57 ‘, Kondogbia), Cheryshev (69 ‘, Gameiro), Marcelo (70 ‘, Ferland Mendy), James (76 ‘, Modric), Mariano (82 ‘, Jovic), Ruben Nephew (82 ‘, Coquelin) SentenceBefore the break Madrid scored a second goal and sent a header to the post. The one and the other were attributable to Isco, another one of those players to whom Zidane has returned from the right. Of the squad of mediapuntas, it is the most qualified for the auction. The goal came in a raid on the right of Valverde, definitely the renaissance player. Valverde has several players on one. His physical deployment allows him to steal and reach, but also to get between the centrals and turn to the side, this time Carvajal, or shake a shoe from 25 meters. Someone capable of playing so many instruments sounds like heavenly music to any coach.Valencia was little. He protected himself badly without the ball and moved without grace when he had it because Madrid minimized Ferran Torres and Carlos Soler, the troublemakers, and Parejo, the player where the team breathes. Gameiro had one and pointed to King Abdullah’s half-empty bleacher.The passing of the minutes fortified the spider web of Madrid, which redoubled its effort to steal quickly and away. There was the impression of being too much before a team lacking the energy, drive and mood of a month ago. Isco established the difference as abysmal. He enjoyed the game, with some excess even at recess.When Celades scored a second point, Valencia was for the coroner. In that bath and massage, Modric left his mark with a goal with the outside of the foot, a gesture that worried Benítez in his day and is part of his ID in football. The game allowed Zidane, even, to roll Marcelo and James, to make a squad, and to give Mariano a kind farewell, which he has always seen as a lost case. Parejo’s final goal, by Ramos penalty, did not comfort Valencia. And the game and result had to convince Zidane that the midfielders are the lever that moves the world.

Zidane’s arrival on the white bench gave her situation a 180 degree turn. He gave free passage to Pepe’s march and granted him ownership. In the 2017-18 campaign he played 44 matches (all complete, which led to the Manchester United his signing was signed: it was rumored that he offered 100 million for his transfer) and the next one, 2018-19, 43. In the current campaign he already has 23 games, with three goals scored. In total, Madrid have won 200 games (66.89%), have drawn 52 (17.39%) and lost 47 (15.72%) with him in the field. Against Sevilla he will round the 300 white matches. world880000 Raphaël Varane (Lille, 04-25-1993) will play his 300th match against Sevilla wearing the Real Madrid shirt. The central reaches that round figure in its ninth season of white, and with a spectacular record in its service sheet: four Champions, four Club World Cups, three European Super Cups, three Spanish Super Cups, two Leagues and a Copa del Rey. Before him Seville will lead the defense again with his partner Eder Militao, as they did in the last league match they played in Getafe (victory by 0-3), before traveling to Arabia to play the Super Cup. The fall of Sergio Ramos force that solution. In that way and before the Sevilla, the French defender will reach this figure in the first game that white people play in their stadium in this 2020.Varane arrived in Madrid from Lens in the summer of 2011. Zinedine Zidane, his current coach, was his great supporter. It is already known the call of the now coach and the response of the then young student (“Call me tomorrow that I have to study for an exam”). At the beginning it was difficult to gain the position: the solidity of the axis formed by Ramos and Pepe they closed any kind of opportunities. These, scarce, served to forge the character of the talented defense. His great moment came in the semifinal of Cup before him Barcelona in 2013. In the first leg, in January 2013, and before a Madrid dwindled by numerous casualties, the central was colossal when it came to defending the white goal. In addition, he scored the goal of the tie (1-1) that opened hope for Real Madrid for the return match. In the Camp Nou, he was outstanding again, and eventually certified the white triumph (1-3).However, muscle injuries (frequent in the biceps femoris during his trajectory) plus a meniscus tear (his knee was inflamed when he linked two-three games in a row) at the end of the 2012-13 season, which separated him 143 football days (from May to October 2013) plus another 52 days of relapse in November (a total of 23 games were lost), have prevented him from reaching that figure much earlier. As revealing fact, he highlights that in his first six campaigns he only exceeded the 40-match barrier in the 2014-15 campaign, with 46. Varane Balancelast_img read more

Celades and Rubi, under magnifying glass

first_imgThe Valencia, coronavirus controls on the sidelines, continue with Your infirmary to the brim. Rodrigo Still not in condition. Without the international, Celades still does not know what it is to win neither in LaLiga nor in the Champions League (three losses and three draws). His good news is that they come back Gabriel Paulista and Gayà. With them you will recover part of the consistency that went with Garay. Above, amen of the pair Maxi-Guedes, Valencia will live once again from the Ferran’s explosiveness, who after four years of waiting will celebrate his birthday in Mestalla. For number lovers, Ferran turns 20 today, with the dorsal 20 and in 2020. Rubi, meanwhile, ventured that he would move “the tree” and that translates into changes in the eleven. Among them, Loren by Borja and Barragan as a novelty. Celades do not run (today) so much danger in his position as his colleague. But don’t trust Catalan much. Your Valencia is still close from the area Champions, but far from his best feelings. The home varapalos they left accumulating (Yeda, Mallorca, Getafe, Granada, Milan and San Sebastián) and it would be a bad sign that it also started float in Mestalla, where in honor of the truth has not yet lost and offers a better face. If he Betis can still win a match in february It’s because the year is leap year. The Verdiblancos have not added three by three since January 19 and that streak of five points of 15 possible makes Villamarín become cross-eyed when looking at their goals; with one eye they still aspire to Europe, but with another I already know worry for knowing how many points the decline.

The aces in Simeone’s sleeve

first_imgPerhaps Simeone’s biggest surprise, above that of Lemar. Cani arrived at Atlético in the market in January 2015, on loan from Villarreal. As well, his first (and only) starting game was against Leverkusen, round of 16 of the Champions League. Quite a blast. Atletico had to overcome the 1-0 of Germany and opted for the Aragonese before Raúl García and Gabi. He was substituted at the break, although for statistics it will remain that assisted Mario’s goal, the 1-0 that did well in the penalty shootout.Raúl Jiménez, striker at the Bernabéu While the fans did their tricks in the Atlético-Liverpool preview and it was assessed whether the 0-0 would be good, the news broke: Lemar was going to be the starter. Not Llorente, not Vitolo, not Costa … Simeone chose the Frenchman, who had played two minutes in the previous two games and, in general, has not performed according to expectations. But Cholo explained it: “There was a game that nobody expected and it was with Lemar. I do because I trust him and his characteristics. Is different. Between Correa, Morata, Lemar and Lodi we could generate on the left with some precision ”. He was substituted at the break with a muscle injury, but he more than met, sacrificing himself on defense with Lodi. In eleven there was another surprise: Vrsaljko, that he surpassed Arias in the preferences of Cholo and resisted Liverpool’s attacks by his band, very sure also in the air balls.Giménez, midfielder One of the great reinforcements of Atlético after the tie against Liverpool is Simeone. In a difficult season, “transitional” as transmitted from the club and where the results in the League are below expectations, eliminating the champion and favorite is a huge dose of morale. Atleti proved that remains a competitive animal and a very tough opponent to crack who gets up with every blow, very cool. The mister, in addition, has thrown of the classics (his favorite 4-4-2), but giving unexpected touches. Those aces up your sleeve that Cholo has surprised from time to time.Lemar (and Vrsaljko), starter against Liverpool Very important with Falcao in 11-12, the first course of Simeone, in the 13-14 Adrián had already lost some prominence at Atlético. But in the spring, Cholo pulled on his ability for the Champions League. First in quarters, for Atlético-Barça. After not entering six of the previous seven calls and unmarked since November, Simeone announced it in the previous one: “If Costa does not arrive (touched), Adrián will play; and he will score a goal ”. He played and, although he did not see a door, he left. And the semifinals came, 0-0 at the Calderón and visit to Mourinho’s Chelsea. And Simeone, this time without warning and with his two rams ready, he surprised again with Adrián. Villa waited on the bench. And Adrián put the first stone of the comeback marking the 1-1 just before the break. The order came out perfect.center_img It was in 2016-17, when Simeone often boasted of having four first-level centrals (Godín, Savic, Giménez and Lucas), while he regretted not being able to give them all the minutes they deserved. With Godín and Savic well established, after Christmas he began to try Giménez’s plan ahead of the rear to shore up. He used it in January, in an Eibar-Atlético, and in some time more, in second parts in which it was time to reinforce the defensive block. And the visit to Leicester, quarterfinals of the Champions League, with a 1-0 in the Calderón of the first leg. Simeone shielded the middle with Giménez and Gabi and the Uruguayan was one of the best, if not the best, of the match (1-1 and to the semifinals). For 2014-15, Atlético de Simeone had to remodel the attack. Villa and Diego Costa had left and Mandzukic and Griezmann arrived, but also Raúl Jiménez, 23-year-old Mexican forward then. With the first two, Atleti won the Super Cup against Madrid. But on September 13, for the league derby at the Bernabéu, Cholo surprised with the Aztec in eleven with Mandzukic. Griezmann and Arda remained on the bench, reserved for the second half.
