This weekend will be remembered in Catalonia… but not for the poor sporting results

first_img Caceido trudged off on the hour mark to be replaced by Christian Stuani, who had scored five of Espanyol’s previous 10 goals this season. The Uruguayan thought he’d won a penalty soon after; instead he won a yellow card. In the final five minutes he was denied a second spot kick. 09/11/2014 CET Upd. at 19:29 Right-back Mario Gaspar had taken advantage of some uncharacteristically shoddy defending to open the scoring and that appeared to be enough to settle this match. Diego Colotto saved a point in the final minute, though. Barcelona’s late, undeserved win against Almeria on 8-N will certainly be washed from most people’s memories fairly quickly; so will Girona’s defeat against Las Palmas in la Segunda’s top of the table clash, while Real Betis had too much for Barca B. And last up, on 9-N itself, Espanyol moved onto four games without a win. However, they may seek some solace in the fact they struck late to earn a draw at home to Villarreal in what was a fairly uninspiring performance until the final, frantic minutes. center_img Sergio Gonzalez’s side weren’t to be denied, though. Stuani, once again in the thick of the action, headed the ball towards the goal and centre-back Colotto helped it over the line. Espanyol now have 11 points from 11 games and sit 11th for now; Villarreal are four points and three places better off.  Sam Marsden Eric Bailly wobbled in defence on his first start for Espanyol and Lucas Vazquez, who looked so explosive earlier this season, was subdued here. Sergio Garcia was his usual, lively, innovative self but one man can’t make a team and it can’t be disguised that Felipe Caceido – despite some admirable hold up play – has scored just once since his summer arrival. If this weekend is to go down in Catalan history it certainly won’t be for the results of the region’s football teams. On Sunday there was a large turnout for the non-binding referendum which many hope will be the first step towards an independent Catalonia. And that will be why 9-N, as the date has been labelled, will be remembered.  Thankfully a disappointing round of results shouldn’t disappoint Catalan football fans too much this weekend – all eyes will be on the results coming out of Sunday’s voting booths instead.last_img read more

Nolito is “disconnected” from Barcelona transfer rumours

first_imgCelta Vigo forward Manuel Agudo ‘Nolito’ has once again made it clear that he is only thinking about his current club. Speaking from the Spain camp after being called up by Vicente del Bosque, he wouldn’t indulge reporters who asked questions about Barcelona’s interest.  EFE Careful of what he was saying, Nolito did admit that he saw another newspaper cover on Wednesday morning linking him with Barcelona. All he would say is that he believes he the best awaits him is he maintains his current level of performance.  CEST Upd. at 14:39 07/10/2015 “I haven’t felt the need to call my family after seeing the front cover,” he said, perhaps with a hint of irony. “I saw it at breakfeast, but, like I said, I try to stay disconnected and focus on my team.  “I am relaxed and helping Celta as much as I can,” he sadi. “I have disconnected from everything they say about mi. I always trtry to be happy and relaxed. So, in this respect, I am trying to be the same [as always].” “I don’t know if I am in the best moment of my career, but I am happy and I feel good. Things are going well, I can’t complain, but I thing that best is still to come.”last_img read more

Juve to offer Dybala new deal to ward off outside interest

first_img The salary roof at Juventus is 5.5 million euros and Dybala would remain below this figure, which is what Paul Pogba earns. Juve would offer four million euros, plus a series of bonuses, and also extend his deal until 2021 to ensure he’s not tempted by any of Europe’s watching eyes. 27/03/2016 CEST At 22, Dybala is one of the revelations of the season and his name has been linked with a string of top clubs. Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain have all expressed an interest in him and his price at the moment would already be around 60 million euros. If not more.  Upd. at 13:53 center_img Sport EN Paulo Dybala has become an important asset for Juventus. Signed from Palermo last summer for 32 million euros, plus eight million euros more potentially in add-ons, the Argentine has hit the ground running in Turin – not just for the 14 goals he has scored, but because he’s becoming vital to the side’s play.  Dybala has a contract with Juventus until 2020 and earns three million euros a season. Now, the Turin club have already decided to try and improve his contract in a bid to quell the interest in their young star.last_img read more

Ronaldo would risk serious injury if he plays against City

first_img Sport EN 28/04/2016 Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo would be risking a serious injury if he took part in the Champions League semi-final second leg against Manchester City at the Santiago Bernabeu next Wednesday.  CEST As of today, it’s said that it will be very difficult for the 31-year-old to appear against City, but if he decides to take the risk, in a bid to boost Madrid’s chances of making the final, he runs the risk of damaging the muscle even more. center_img Upd. at 12:29 The radio show ‘Al Primer Toque’ on Onda Cero has reported that the Portuguese international has indeed suffered a muscle tear – the injury which has kept him out of his side’s last two games, against Rayo Vallecano and City.  In that case, if Madrid were to qualify for the Champions League final (May 28 in Milan), Cristiano could miss the game, although he would have 24 days to recover after that City game, which takes place on May 4.last_img read more

Força Cholo Simeone! For one day, Barcelona are with you…

first_imgWe were with Manchester City. But they let us down. We were with Pep Guardiola’s Bayern Munich. But they let us down, too. Now we are left with no other choice but to support Atletico Madrid in the Champions League final. Even though we are not ‘Cholistas’, we will be for one day. It’s the only hope we have against Real Madrid’s ‘undecima’ hopes. It’s a sad consolation  for Cules in a season which will be good, bad or regular in function to what happens in Milan on May 28. The league and cup double will be judged against what happens in the Champions League. And if Madrid win it, nothing will be sufficient. Because their eleventh European Cup will be forced down our throats from the Madrid information machine.  There’s also a date with justice for Atletico Madrid in this Champions League final as well. They deserved to win it two years ago, when they were beaten by Madrid in stoppage time. Simeone’s revenge will also be ours. City were not capable of eliminating Madrid. And Bayern, who were the Cules’ alternative without Barcelona in the competition, were knocked about by the passion of ‘Cholismo’ and an Atletico Madrid side who we don’t enjoy watching, but is now our favourite. Simeone has taken the expression ‘the important thing is to win, not how you win’ to new levels. The complete opposite to what we though when we enjoyed the Pep Team. But for one day, for a couple of hours, we will be behind ‘Cholismo’ so as not to see Sergio Ramos lift the ‘undecima’. Upd. on 05/05/2016 at 00:32 CESTcenter_img Madrid reached the final of the Champions League without football. A goalless draw in Manchester and a 1-0 win at the Bernabeu. Little else, very little. But it was enough to knock out a City side that somehow reached the last four – no-one can understand how. A boring, bland team, lacking in bite, intensity and ambition. Nothing. A team that’s going to need a lot of work if Guardiola wants to win something when he debuts in the Premier League next season.   Lluis Mascaro 04/05/2016last_img read more

Keylor Navas errs on first Real Madrid game for four months

first_img Upd. at 00:05 The Costa Rican goalkeeper suffered from Achilles problems through the summer and Zinedine Zidane curiously picked this game as the time to recall the star. Sport EN CEST Keylor Navas played his first Real Madrid game for four months and made a mistake that cost his team a goal. However, in the first half he punched a Gonzalo Castro free-kick poorly, into Raphael Varane, with the ball bouncing back towards his goal, with Aubameyang on hand to ensure it crossed the line. Navas spoke after the game, saying: “In the first ball I didn’t see the ball coming. I took a bad decision that cost us a goal. These are things you have to improve. I felt calm playing despite so much time out. Thanks to God I’m back and I hope to keep playing.” 28/09/2016 Dortmund fired in 20 shots, of which 10 were on target and Navas stopped eight of them. In the second half he made a couple of very good saves.last_img read more

Powered by Firework French striker Antoine Griezmann takes a dig at Belgian goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois for his comment on France national team after their semifinal loss to Les Blues. Griezmann’s statement throws light on the fact that he has put his country’s triumph over his personal glory.

I don’t care how, I want a second star to be on this shirt.
