Champions | Lyon surprises ‘the Italian’

first_imgGoals1-0, 30 ‘: Lucas Tousart As expected, the tables changed in the second half. Juventus was forced to advance lines, and Rudi García, showing off his defensive label, delayed the team about 20 meters to tie the result. It was no longer the Lyon of the first half that reached all duels and attacked the backlash with great sufficiency.The match began to be in the boots of Paulo Dybala. The Argentine had been missing in the first half, but with a much more dominating Juventus, began to appear between the lines and punish Lyon. A side center ended up in his boots, but the shot went off touching the post. Virtually every occasion of Sarri’s started from him.In the final minutes, lJuventus squeezed more than normal, but Lyon contained all the rush of the Italians. Cristiano Ronaldo requested a penalty from Denayer, but the Belgian collided shoulder to shoulder with the former Madrid. Gil Manzano annulled a goal from Dybala almost at the end for offside and Lyon ended up surprising Juve. ChangesRamsey (61 ‘, Pjanić), Martin Terrier (65 ‘, Karl Toko Ekambi), Higuain (69 ‘, Square), Tete (77 ‘, Dubois), Federico Bernardeschi (77 ‘, Rabiot), Joachim Andersen (80 ‘, Cornet) CardsReferee: Jesús Gil ManzanoVAR Referee: Juan Martínez MunueraMarcelo (27 ‘, Yellow) Cornet (60 ‘, Yellow The Lyon of the great European nights has returned. The set of Rudi García surprised Juventus with a lonely goal from Lucas Tousart, and faces the return with advantage in a tie that started as one of the most unequal of all the round of 16.The clear favoritism of Juventus was evident in the absence of an hour of the game with the eleven of Lyon. Rudi García decided to bet on a defense of three centrals to stop Dybala and Cristiano, with the novelty of Guimaraes, who debuted in the Champions League forming the double local pivot with Tousart. For its part, Sarri lined a 4-3-3, with the inclusion of Rabiot in the center of the field and with Square on the right side to defend the area of ​​influence of Aouar in the left sector of Lyon.It mattered little that Juventus came as a Series A leader and that Lyon was in low hours. The Champions does not understand performance in local competitions, and that was demonstrated again in today’s game. Although Sarri’s dominated the first ten minutes, enclosing a fairly passive Lyon, as the minutes passed, the French team broke loose and began to believe that it could defeat a superior rival. Cristiano warned with a poisoned center-chut in the first minutes, but it was a mirage.The good work of Lyon, with a system of three centrals that plugged the sides of Juventus on the ball, found its fruits in the 31st minute. Aouar, a player who the fan asks for a step forward in the big appointments, made a play mark of the house on the left and attended Tousart. The midfielder of Lyon, so criticized in recent months, marks for the second consecutive year in the second round, after having already scored Barcelona last season.The nerves began to settle in Juventus, unable to draw a single danger attack, beyond two Cristiano Ronaldo centers. In fact, Olympique de Lyon found a highway on the right side. Dubois, right lane, always received brand free, and Alex Sandro, very pressured at the start of the ball, did not receive a single help from Rabiot. There, both the side of Lyon and Toko-Ekambi, signed two clear occasions before the break, but the former Villarreal could not score when shooting high two shots could well have carried more danger on the goal defended by Szczęsny.last_img read more

General reduction of wages

first_imgIn the face of global problems, global solutions. This is the idea that various european clubs think pose in the telematic meeting of the ECA planned for today Monday in which several teams will propose a contingency plan to study one general reduction of wages to the templates of the professional teams of European football before the mace what does the economic crisis caused by the pandemic of coronavirus. The Barcelona is one of the groups most interested in implementing this initiative.This newspaper already reported last Wednesday that in the Barca They were considering reformulating the budget for this season (1,047 million) due to “unrecoverable losses” due to the lack of incomes in television rights, museum, shops, sponsorships, box offices, schools worldwide, VIP tickets, advertising and hospitality. So, it is time to act accordingly. A problem that does not exclusively affect the Blaugrana set. It is a matter that, to a greater or lesser extent taking into account the particularities of each entity and affects all teams from Spain and Europe.This is a general problem. Italy, that suffered the effects of the coronavirus before the rest of European countries is one of the most affected and think act in the same line. According to ‘Il Giornale’, the CEO of the Inter Beppe Marotta contacted several European clubs to propose the same strategy before this matter: both Barcelona and Real Madrid, for the Italian newspaper, they would have given him the go ahead. Nevertheless, the white club categorically denies that he had any conversation with Inter on this. And is that Serie A clubs are considering seriously cut the salaries of footballers due to the emergency. For Serie A, the economic prejudice is enormous: around 800 million euros, perhaps more. Many clubs have already invested the money they expected from television rights and if the championship is suspended they will be in a highly compromised situation.During the Friday assemblyItalian teams have already discussed suspending payments to footballers for the month of March. Damiano Tommasi, President of the AIC, Italian association of footballers, opened the doors to negotiate saying that “footballers are the first ones interested in maintaining the system,” but he asked for calm, since it is not yet known if the season will be suspended, and above all he recalled that each player will have to decide individually: “We cannot compel anyone.”In Spain, at the moment the topic is latent, but there is more than rumors. Joan Vehils reported in the Saturday edition of Sport that he Bartomeu president had kept a Contact informal with captains, that they would have shown him their availability by being aware of the seriousness of the situation.However, the Blaugrana club intends, along with other protagonists from the football association that is this a collegial measure he has his first step at Monday’s ECA meeting.last_img read more

Tello: “Having given LaLiga to Barcelona would be very nice”

first_imgIt would be remembered as the ‘Liga de Tello’.(Laughs) Yes, that goal would always be remembered, because it would have been the last game and also the last goal of the season.And that is not going the year he was expecting.It’s been a difficult season for me, I haven’t had the minutes I wanted. I work to earn the title and that last goal against Madrid gave me a lot of joy and confidence. There has been talk of his departure in recent months. Will he still be here after the summer?I always had the intention to continue at Betis, at no time did it ever cross my mind to leave. In summer? I have a contract and I want to continue because I feel very comfortable, but it will also be necessary to listen to the needs of the club, know what they think.How is it that you have been a Betic since childhood?Well, I saw him with my father there in Catalonia. I don’t know if it will come as a family, but whenever we came to Seville they tried to take me to the country. I have family here. And in Barcelona he also went to the Barça and Espanyol stadiums, all dressed in verdiblanco.In Catalonia there are many Betis and in this Betis there are more Catalans than in Barça.Yeah i was kind of the pioneer (laughs) Then came Bartra, Edgar, Rubi, Álex Moreno, Aleñá … What if a lot of Catalan is spoken in the dressing room? We usually speak in Spanish, because if someone doesn’t jump to tell us that they don’t understand us. Just kidding, of course. You here and your former coach, Setién, in Barcelona. What do you think?Quique is capable of contributing many things to Barcelona. With him at Betis we played a spectacular game and achieved important things. Setién must give the game of Barça that touch point and association that he was perhaps missing, to return to being the Barcelona of before.He has been a good friend of Iker Casillas since they met in Porto. What do you think about presenting yourself to the Federation?It seems perfect. Iker is a super prepared person, both for his career and for everything behind him. There will be many people to support you. He has seen the occasion and believes that he can contribute a lot to Spanish football.What do you ask of what is left of the campaign, if there is anything left?I think we have seen a very difficult competition, that anyone can play on any field. We must take advantage of those occasions we have, go to death. We can go upstairs. Playing without an audience is not the same motivation, but we are in a complex situation and we will have to stick with it. We will be aware of what is at stake, we are convinced that we can enter Europe and strike a blow on the table. Cristian Tello Cristian Tello “Setién must give Barça that touch point and association that it was losing to return to being the team it was before.”center_img How does this confinement happen?Well trying to work at home without losing shape. It gets weirder with each passing week, but I try to be optimistic: we are closer to going out.You are an explosive player. Is it more difficult to train speed in short spaces?For any type of soccer player this becomes hard. Exercising on the grass is another matter. But there are different exercises for speed and strength, the Betis technicians are turning to us. “Casillas is super prepared and can contribute a lot to Spanish football. There will be many people who support him.” Do you think this League will be played again?I hope so, that a certain normality will return. Same without public and playing every two or three days. It is more risk when it comes to injury, but LaLiga must be ended.If not? See that if his goal, the last to be scored in the championship so far, makes Barcelona champion …Well, I hope it is played, of course. But it would not be very nice to have given Barcelona the League. I am very fond of the club and its fans, I spent many years there. If my goal has served for that, I would not hide the illusion.
