As Ernesto Valverde already admitted, Marc André Ter Stegen has practically impossible to reach the Spanish Super Cup. At least, to the semifinal. Five days after the match against Atlético de Madrid, the German, who draws a tendinopathy on his right knee, also did not train in the open session held by Barcelona in the Estadi Johan Cruyff. It was the great absent next to Arthur, who continues with his pubic problems, and Dembélé, who continues with the recovery of his fracture in the biceps femoris of the right thigh. Ter Stegen could travel to Arabia with the rest of the squad and continue his recovery there to, perhaps, wait for the final if he could not play against Atlético. It is more logical to think, however, that the German international will finish his treatment and reappear against Granada on January 19. Thus, it would have been almost a month since his last appearance against Alavés. A time really prudential for the conservative treatment on his left knee to take effect.
No one doubts that Kroos He deserved the renovation that was so questioned at the end of last season. Then, the German showed a languid football that triggered the alarms on which he had been, next to Modric, the true locomotive of Madrid of the four European Cups won in five years. But the contribution of Kroos is not only being limited in recent meetings to the offensive facet. On Wednesday, apart from those more than one hundred passes and giving two assists for the first two goals (to Varane and Lucas Vázquez), He again taught a lesson on how to make high blood pressure by stealing the ball that resulted in precisely that second goal. His four goals and eight assists have given Madrid a lot this season. One of his many, the Olympic corner against Valencia in the Super Cup, He put the team on the way to the first title of the campaign. Further, their goals and assists have been six points in the league (his last pass to Nacho against Valladolid gave another cystic match) and four in Champions. To date and in this course, Kroos has participated in 12 goals (four goals and eight assists). He has already passed his records last season (one goal and six assists) and put him on the road to match what has been done other campaigns: five goals and ten assists in 17-18, four and 16 in 16-17, one and 13 in 15-16 and two and 14 in 14-15 . A world crack that came from Bayern for only 25 million euros.Wednesday was Ceballos he who surrendered at his feet with this tweet … Torpedo Müllerthe Kaiser Beckenbauerthe Abyssinian Breitner… Y Kroos the Architect. The German midfielder has pulled the tiralíneas this season and is being more architect than ever, the man who designs the football of the Zidane team over the field. Before him Saragossa, in Cup, he gave a recital again and his good performances have already become a custom since he renewed his contract (until 2023). There were 104 passes in La Romareda! He hit the 95% of them (up to 99). But it is surprising that those 104 passes have not been this season’s record for him, and that gives an idea of how important it is being in construction. In the League match against Valencia he gave 109, in the Super Cup, also against Valencia, 107, and against PSG 105 …

Pablo Carreño took one other step ahead in Rotterdam by beating the pearl of Italian tennis, Jannik Sinner (18 and 79th in the world) and will play on Saturday the semifinals of the Dutch ATP 500. The Gijón wanted three units, with a ultimate tiebreaker, (7-5, 3-6 and 7-6 (6) in 2h: 44) to bend with nice effort to the present champion of the NextGen ATP Finals. Carreño had issues along with his service, however was ready to save up to 12 break factors (match two) and break Sinner’s serve a few instances in seven makes an attempt. In the third set, the Spaniard missed three match balls with 5-4 to the relaxation and had to save the furnishings in the tiebreaker after beginning the decisive sleeve with a 3-Zero in his favor. In that ultimate destiny, it was the transalpine child who had two factors to win with 6-4, however misplaced the final 4 factors and, consequently, the match.Carreño, who eradicated Bautista in the spherical of 16, will probably be measured in the semifinals with the winner of the duel between Aljaz Bedene (3-2 for the Slovenian in the stability sheet) and the Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime (they’ve by no means crossed).
Navarro does not want to give up his emoluments, the Vitorian club does not want to share the salary with the Poles and the historic Gornik Zabrze is not willing to face the player’s salary alone. There are days, in any case, to resolve an issue that can only leave complicated situations if you are still in Vitoria. Rafa Navarro and Alavés are negotiating with Gornik Zabrze of Poland. In this Central European country the market closes on March 2. The Sevillian player comes from Sochaux-Montbeliard and plays right back. He has an important salary and in January there have been clubs that have asked about his situation but he has not reached an economic agreement with him and with Alavés. The Sevillian footballer lives the day-to-day life of the Asier Garitano team and has a number on the official website of the club. But the Gipuzkoan technician does not count on him or for the calls. Nor is the sports director too interested in giving prominence within the entity. His contract came over the albiazul project in France and the smartest thing would be to reach an agreement for disengagement.A few weeks ago he suffered a sprained knee and is now reluctant. But the Poles are looking for a right-hand side since Boris Sekulic has left for the Chicago Fire of the MLS and right now, according to the Alava News Newspaper, he only has a youth player and an Icelandic player who does not enter the plans of the Polish coach.
CardsReferee: Eduardo Prieto IglesiasVAR Referee: Carlos del Cerro GrandeDavid Lopez (15 ‘, Yellow) David Lopez (24 ‘, Red) Marc Roca (35 ‘, Yellow) Embarba (78 ‘, Yellow) Darder (87 ‘, Yellow) Raul Garcia (87 ‘, Yellow Goals1-0, 76 ‘: Sandro, 2-0, 82 ‘: Sergi Guardiola, 2-1, 92 ‘: Embarba Regarding the penalty indicated to Espanyol, the Real Valladolid coach said that, although he came to plan the ghost of fear, they are situations that “they try to work, as well as the responsibility to go ahead, to gain more confidence and to evolve” and He thinks they managed it “better.”“We hope that we do not lose this oxygen ball and that these situations are better managed to make that quality leap, because normally, when you are calmer, you play better football”, Sergio clarified, who recalled that “there are thirteen games and still a lot to go.”As for the performance of Raúl Carnero, one of the players who arrived after the winter market, commented: “He is giving what he thought he was going to give, because he manages the times, has character and brings experience”, which has The team came very well.Sergio González was also “very happy” by the players “Because it means taking a blow on the table so that they can be trusted again, in case some did not do it”, and because, as he pointed out, “they always show their faces and have competed to the fullest”.“I still think that neither having won we are saved, nor descended if we had lost, because there is a lot of fabric and, although the journey is still good, there is much to say. I hope we can take advantage of this momentum to link a positive dynamic and continue adding victories”he asserted.AbelardThe Espanyol coach, Gijón Abelardo Fernández, said Sunday, after losing to Valladolid (2-1) at the José Zorrilla stadium, that they were “annoyed” but also warned that “thirteen League games remain” and the objective must be “keep fighting until the end”.As the Asturian coach said, the defeat against Valladolid has been “hard”, being against an opponent “who would have gotten into the fight for salvation”, but clarified that “being 65 minutes with one player less is difficult” and , in this sense, indicated that “the first card was not and conditioned very much what happened next”.In his opinion, “the worst was 2-0”, because with one goal, “any play could have allowed them to enter the game” and, although he admitted that his team “did not start well” and that they “lacked to have the ball “, he also stressed that Real Valladolid” did not create occasions “either.“They dominated territorially but without danger, because the team defended well, until the wear allowed the opponent to find a loophole, which is when he scored both goals”, the Asturian technician analyzed.Asked about whether the team notes Raúl de Tomás’s absence, Abelardo said that “there was a spectacular game against Sevilla and he was not there” and, although he admitted that it is “An important player, there are others who are doing well and give everything they have for the group.”Finally, regarding the morale of the “parakeet troop”, after the blow suffered in Europe and the league defeat this Sunday against Real Valladolid, said that “You can leave or continue fighting until the last day, which is what is going to be done, because there are thirteen games left and I still believe in my players”he concluded. Valladolid accumulated players ahead of the ball, created a premeditated chaos in which Carnero left his band, got in and shot hard in a pitch that Diego López cleared. Then Sandro entered quickly to hit with the left leg and put the ball in the net. The encounter did not change. Sandro was able to do the second before Unal sneaked to the right, faced Diego Lopez and he knocked him down, however, the ball came to Sergi Guardiola who pushed the ball into goal to make the 2-0 and, supposedly, sentence.However, as Real Valladolid does not know how to win without suffering, in minute 92, the VAR warned the braid, in a play traced to that of Granada last week, and punished Olivas penalty by hand. Embarba took advantage without problems in the only goal shot of this second part, but the game was already over. Valladolid flees from the area below and adds 29 points, while Espanyol keeps 19.Sergio GonzalezReal Valladolid coach Sergio González was “satisfied” on Sunday for the victory against Espanyol, because it was “very necessary”, so much that he made both teams go “tense, gripped and self-conscious”, but his team achieved the success to add the three points.“These types of matches also serve to forge you and make you stronger. Today the important thing was the victory and, although there have been better matches, it has been right, which is what was needed”, added the Catalan coach, who admitted that he wanted to “risk” with the entry of Sandro, being one more.In addition, there is the circumstance that Sandro’s departure was effective, as he jumped to the pitch “with the appropriate frequency and eager to compete” and the goal has allowed him to “claim”, as well as Guardiola, who He added the second goal to the Blanquivioleta locker.In addition, the good encounter made by the other striker, Enes Ünal, is added, but Sergio González clarified that “In order to get all three together, you have to give yourself the right match, which happens rarely”. In a match with few occasions, Real Valladolid took the victory against Espanyol (2-1) because it dominated the ball and generated more chances, almost all, because the Abelardo team, who played 65 minutes with one less, gave a very poor image, he barely approached the opposing goal and could only score after a penalty in which the VOR room notified Prieto Iglesias of the maximum penalty that Embarba was responsible for marking on the discount.And is that in the encounter of fear of losing, the Blue and Whites left very close to Diego López, trying to force a pucelano error to go against. Basically it went well, the local danger came only in distant balls that did not concern the Spanish goal. Only Plano made him intervene because the shots of Alcaraz or Moyano marched away and Unal’s header was too tender. In the opposite goal, Masip barely participated. Only Calleri in a strange play, in which he was enabled, headed very weakly. And is that Abelardo’s team took another step back with the expulsion of David López, double yellow, in the 24th minute, while the pucelanos moved the ball from side to side, but without verticality, without danger.In the second part, Real Valladolid left with one more march, which brought him closer to the opposite goal, but also opened the way for Espanyol to reach Masip’s goal more. The Valladolid people pushed, but without creating too much danger and only the entry of Sandro and Hervías gave another rhythm to those of Sergio González. The canary, who did not score in the league since November 3, came out very plugged in to try to overtake his own.

To compare how things have changed we can remember that, Before the appointment of the Metropolitan, the Liverpool pass was paid at 1.33. And for example For the first leg itself, the Premier leader was already very favorite: his victory at Wanda Metropolitano was paid between 2.15 and 2.3, and that of Atlético at 3.5-3.75. According to the quotas of Betfair, that the Atleti advance round is paid to 1.73 and Liverpool to 2.1. That is to say that it is at odds, but slightly in favor of the rojiblancos, whom, remember, they are worth the victory, the tie or the defeat by a goal if it marks. The 1-0 lead to extra time and then to penalties. In bet365, the mattress pass is 1.7 and the net, to 2.05. Downward confidenceLiverpool have accumulated poor results in the Champions, Premier and FA Cup that have undermined the confidence of the bettors. In fact, according to the report of Betfair, in the last week the bets in favor of Liverpool have fallen 66%. After the first leg (February 18), Klopp’s were still slightly favorites and his comeback with a quarter pass was paid at 1.95. Still, globally, 82% of the stake is to trust the reigning champion.Regarding results, the 1-1 (which would give the pass to Atlético) is the one that has received the most bets, with 18%. They are followed by 16% at 1-0 (would lead to overtime, but in the betting they look at the 90th minute) and 13% at 0-0. What was thought on the day of the draw on the tie between Liverpool and Atlético to what the bets foresee today It has changed a lot. The Klopp team it has been almost since the beginning of the course one of the favorites to take the Champions, of which he is the current champion, but after the 1-0 first leg and the doubts generated by his latest results have changed the picture. So much so that the day before Anfield’s appointment, the favorite to go to the quarters is … Atlético!
Another issue that has been discussed is the possible suspension of soccer players’ salaries: at the moment, it is considering blocking March payments, although it will take a negotiation with the soccer federation and association to achieve an agreement. The Serie A teams, on the other hand, did not discuss the training issue, which had already caused some tension, with Lazio wanting to return to work on Monday. The clubs will follow the averages of the authorities: the emergency is still very serious and another government decree should arrive this weekend. The Serie A clubs met again by teleconference this afternoon, discussing the latest news of the coronavirus emergency. Impossible, for the moment, to establish a date to resume the championships, although it seems certain that, achieving it until May 10, it would be possible to conclude the season before June 30: if this were not the case, an agreement would have to be sought to extend contracts and transfers until July. In the worst case, if the championships will have to be permanently suspended, the losses would be around 800 million euros and the state’s help would have to be asked to save the movement, with several clubs condemned to bankruptcy in this situation. The idea of the playoffs and playouts, apparently, has not conquered anyone.
Eduardo Camavinga, (17 years old, Rennes) is one of the French pearls that are on Real Madrid’s radar.Mondadori Portfolio Well young and cheapHence, agility to find will become more important than ever. bargains in the market or future investments. How Camavinga (17 years old, Rennes), Cherki (16 years old, Lyon) and Upamecano (21 years old, Leipzig). They are three French pearls that are being monitored by Zidane and that are in a favorable contractual situation to be able to go out this summer. Neither has a contract beyond 2022 (Upamecano even less, ends in 2021) so their clubs should consider whether or not to sell now. And some, like Cherki, are crazy about Real Madrid music, as he confessed this week on the TV of his current club, Olympique de Lyon. A forward with a great future and could come out for a figure close to 10 million euros. An affordable signing in a market preparing for troubled times … “There are stars that will renew for a year to postpone their sale,” says an agent In the 2019 summer market there were three signings above the striking figure of 100 million euros. Griezmann (€ 120M), Joao Félix (€ 126M) and Hazard (€ 100M plus variables). A inflated marketor in previous years by Neymar (€ 222M), Coutinho (€ 160M) or Dembele (€ 125M). Now everything has changed. The stars are going to think a lot to change their air now. The exception could be Pogba and Real Madrid. His relationship with Manchester United is so deteriorated that his arrival at Madrid it’s now or never.Much will depend on whether the Spanish and European competition resumes or not. Dave Hopkinson, general director of sponsorships of the white club, alerted last Wednesday in an interview of the severe blow that the finances of the club may receive in the coming months. “If the season ends, the economic impact will be mitigated,” he says. “But if the calendar is canceled entirely… that’s not going to be good“ A round by agents and representative agencies in Spain and Europe augurs austerity this summer. Here, an agent sums it up like this for AS. “We try to work, but it is impossible to know what will happen, nobody knows, the clubs have closed themselvesyes, ”he explains. An Italian agent, used to working in the international market, goes along the same lines. “Right now nobody is moving. Selling will be very difficult, there will be little money and the footballers will be devalued “. It does, however, give a clue to this newspaper. “The one that has good players is going to try to renew them to postpone their sale for a year, many plans drawn up in the months prior to this crisis will change. “In Portugal, a well-placed agency agrees.” Everything is paralyzed, it is useless to call the clubs to negotiate nada, our priority now is the well-being of our players because we operate in more than twenty countries and some do not know if they will be able to collect. ” He Real Madrid will have to adapt to a transfer market never seen before. The coronavirus has been the needle that has punctured the bubble of the soccer sector. An anomalous situation that puts in check the millionaire movements to which the great clubs are accustomed. Investments like the ones that would force supercharts like Mbappé, Pogba or Haaland … now they are going uphill.
But the people in charge of the turf in the municipal stadium and in I was going. They go every day, in person, so that the grass does not spoil. Some professionals in the communication, marketing, sponsorship and advertising and even ticketing services are also activated. In this case, they do go to the offices of the Baskonia Group sitas in the Buesa Arena. Between all of them and some managers involved, the events that are planned, basically solidarity, are covered. Broadly speaking, it can be agreed that there is one person per department working in person on a daily basis. All of them are, logically, subject to the ERTE of the company.The trips are made from home to an environment far from the city center. It is easy to park without problems and then move around the facilities with little risk of contagion due to the existing spaces. Hygienic and cleaning measures are extreme and protocols are continuously carried out to prevent the spread of the virus.In the case of the gardeners of the sports city of I was going and that of Mendizorroza, they are alone in their functions and do not put anyone at risk. When there is new activity, it will be necessary to carry out the cleaning tasks and very demanding control protocols will be carried out for all those who come there. Only minimally necessary workers and athletes will appear. For example, press conferences with face-to-face journalists are ruled out. No one is totally stopped because, for example, the club’s executives continue to do business but from home. Too the players who train at their homes every day supervised by the coaching staff and the club doctors. But they do not go to the usual places of work: Mendizorroza, I was going or the sports city of Bakh. Some facilities are directly closed.
