Óscar Pereiro: “There would be problems if Bale were my partner”

first_imgOn Sunday they face their two soul teams. Who are you going with?Always with Celta, I have no doubt. I only wished the opposite once, in which Celta did not play anything and Real Madrid was fighting for LaLiga. I am a cellist and follower of Real Madrid.Has that been your order of preference since you were a child?I am not a cellist since I was born. I started following him with 11 years, just after my father took me to Balaído to see a Celta-Real Madrid. I remember that the figure was Baltazar. Being smaller I have photos with the Athletic shirt. I imagine my grandparents would give it to me for Athletic titles those years. But neither as a child nor as an adult I had a Madrid shirt. At the time of Capello it was when I became more Real Madrid.You who are so multifaceted and football fan, would not you like to be a manager of Celta?Many times I have thought about it. It would be milk, an incredible experience.Why is Celtic again struggling to save itself?Since leaving Berizzo has been a disappointment after another. We need to work more, be more humble. In August we all thought we had a team to fight for Europe, but we are a very soft team. At times I get the feeling that we lack ambition. It cannot be that we are one of the teams that lacks the least in LaLiga. With Berizzo we had another claw, more intensity.Do you think Iago Aspas is going to the European Championship? He is a magician. Last year he saved Celta and this season if he is not shining so much it is because he has few balls. He should go to the European Championship for quality, intensity and for being the top Spanish scorer of the last leagues.What match do you expect this Sunday at the Bernabéu?I am more optimistic than a month ago. We come from being very bad and we are growing. I really like the progression in the Celtic game, although it is hard for us to score points. We can make war, although Real Madrid is defensively quite reliable.Do you see them as league champions?It is very soon and there is a Classic. Style doesn’t just make me fall in love. Practice a control football, is not a steamroller like Liverpool or like Real Madrid from other times. Of course, its effectiveness is indisputable.And in the Champions League do you consider it a favorite against City?When Real Madrid puts on the European shirt it looks like a different team. In theory it is favorite and the City is not in its best season. Even so, he is a strong rival and with a coach who really wants Real Madrid.Did you have a partner like Bale in your career as a professional cyclist?No never. That pasotismo had never seen him, someone who is so good and has no ambition to win and be the best. It gives the feeling of being accommodated, that he charges every month and that he doesn’t care about football. If I were my partner, with the character I have, there would be problems.last_img read more

Atletico bleeds to a standing ball … and Liverpool flies

first_imgSince the Cholo arrived, the worst league at the defensive level had been 2013-14, with six goals conceded. Now, Real Sociedad, Sevilla, Granada, Levante, Eibar (two) and Valencia (two), plus Leverkusen in Europe, have already taken advantage of this red-and-white weakness before the foreign board. And in three days it is measured at a Liverpool which, precisely, manages air play as few in Europe. So, in these eighths, the great threat by air will be Van Dijk, that with his 1.93 he has scored four goals in the Premier League, three born from the corner and the other from a foul on the area. Although, it is also true, Atlético has things to say in the air game. Morata also has four goals, three at stake and one of a foul launched by Trippier. Y the strategy has originated many others marked by Savic, Herrera, Costa and Felipe. Simeone also has Giménez ready for the appointment, thinking in both areas. All help adds up to a Champions battle that can be resolved in any play and where Atleti should be more alert than ever … Klopp’s is, in fact, the major league team that has scored the most goals (13) and corner (eight), plus three others when finishing off fouls. In Champions, two others with their heads, one of them born from the corner. In Spain, to compare, they send Real Madrid and Getafe, with 13 and 12 accurate testarazos Among all competitions. Last year, Liverpool won the Champions League and fought the Premier League to the limit thanks to its 25 head goals (in 104 shots); 18 born in corners and seven in indirect free …center_img Atlético missed the victory at Mestalla by two goals conceded to the ball stopped and, the worst, is not something punctual for the team. Valencia was not the first to find the cracks of the rojiblancos, which they have already fitted nine goals in strategy plays -Without counting direct free-, eight in the League (the worst of First) and one in the Champions League. What was once one of the team’s strongest points is now a problem. Y a Liverpool arrives on Tuesday and don’t forgive …It hurts to see that who one day was your ally now has turned against you and it hurts that it’s not just a matter of centimeters, no matter how much the Godin are no longer, Raúl García, Torres… Because, there are the most recent examples, Kondogbia equalized by finishing off the ground and before, for 1-1, Maxi allowed himself the luxury of controlling a center from the corner with his chest. “We have to be more attentive,” Thomas summed up after the game.last_img read more

This is how the Golden Boot would look if football does not resume

The French striker has scored, like these three footballers, 14 points with the white team, so he has 28 points in the fight for the Golden Boot.It remains to be seen if the ranking remains that way or if the competition continues after tournaments resume, although in case some are canceled, there will be disadvantaged players, since they will not be able to continue adding goals while their rivals do have that option. That is the case, for the moment, of Alexander Sörloth (Trabzonspor) and of Ilya Shkurin (CSKA Moscow), who occupy positions 20 and 21 tied with 19 goals and 28.5 points, but who have the possibility of continuing to rise in the table, as their competitions continue. 17Erik sorgaFlora Tallinn31one31 6Leo MessiBarcelona19two38 3Cristiano RonaldoJuventustwenty-onetwo42 8Kylian MbappéPSG18two36 19Danny IngsSouthamptonfifteentwo30 4Timo WernerRB Leipzigtwenty-onetwo4 16Moussa DembéléOlympique Lyon16two32 24Saio ManéLiverpool14two28 12Shon WeissmanWolfsberger221.533 fifteenMohamed SalahLiverpool16two32 Current classification of the Golden Boot 13Sergio AgueroManchester City16two32 18Josip IlicicAtalantafifteentwo30 twoRobert LewandowskiBayern Munich25twofifty The coronavirus crisis has left the resolution of many European championships in the air. Waiting to decide what will be done with the Santander League, the Premier League, the A series, the Bundesliga wave Ligue 1, there is another competition that still has no winner: the Golden Boot of the 2019-2020 season. The trophy that is awarded to the top scorer of the European leagues of the season has no owner since not all the days of all the competitions have been played, so The possible scenarios from there would be to wait to resume all competitions, leave the classification as it is and give the award to the current leader, or leave the prize deserted.And if by any chance they decided to leave the classification as it is, the winner would be Ciro Immobile. The striker of the Lazio would be the first Italian to get it since the monopoly of Messi Y Christian, only briefly interrupted by Uruguayans Luis Suarez Y Diego Forlan. Just before the irruption of the Portuguese, two Italians came to win it (Francesco Totti in 2006-2007 and Luca Toni in 2005-2006). Immobile had so far scored 27 goals, so it would top the table with 54 points due to the coefficient that multiplies Serie A goals by two. to yield these results.Robert Lewandowski would be second with 25 goals and 50 points. Polish striker from Bayern Munich He made a spectacular start to the season and shows that the years do not take away his scoring capacity. The same happens with what would be the Bronze Boot, Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese of the Juventus has scored in eleven consecutive matches in the Italian league if we except the match against Brescia in which he was not called. The seven, with 21 goals and 42 points, tie with two of those called to be the forwards of the future: Erling Haaland (Borussia Dortmund and RB Salzburg) and Timo Werner (RB Leipzig).In sixth place would be Leo Messi, current champion, who accumulates 19 goals and 12 assists that do not add up in this ranking in which he has 38 points, proving that he is decisive in Barcelona’s goal both assisting and executing. Messi has not been out of the podium since the 2015-2016 season, in which Luis Suárez won, Gonzalo Higuain and Cristiano Ronaldo, in that order.It is striking that the top scorer in the European leagues has more goals than Immobile but is ranked number 17. It is the 20-year-old Estonian, Erik Sorga, who made 31 goals with Flora Tallinn last season (The current one has a disputed day, but the one that computes is the previous one), but his coefficient only multiplies by one and that leaves him with the same points as goals. As if that were not enough, it has been less than a month since he played in Europe, since at the end of February he signed with the United States DC United. twentyAlexander SörlothTrabzonspor191.528.5 2. 3Jadon SanchoBorussia Dortmund14two28 9Wissam Ben YedderMonaco18two36 14João PedroCagliari16two32 10Romelu LukakuInter Milan17two3. 4 5Erling HaalandBorussia Dortmund25two42last_img read more
