Koke and twelve more – AS.com

first_imgToday Simeone goes out with Koke and ten more. Or better: Koke and twelve other first team field players, what does he have. Thirteen and two goalkeepers. Complete the list three soccer players of B. The injuries again, all accumulated in the same section of the season. Seven (Trippier, Arias, Giménez, Herrera, João, Morata and Costa) plus Felipe, down by penalty. And in front of Granada, another one of those teams that Cholo has a hard time winning, so identical: intense and with a lot of pressure, to wait back and the ball stopped. But today is of mortal necessity. Win back. Atletico is out of the Champions League positions, it is 6th, and in two games who is Liverpool.A Granada Cup semifinalistToday a Cup semifinalist Granada does and maybe with his head there, more in the game during the week than this one on Saturday. Diego Martínez, who in the first round already started a draw to Atleti in Los Cármenes, will make rotations, such as Foulquier by Neva on the side. The loss of Gonalons, overload, is important. He already lacks Montoro. In the center will enter Eteki or maybe Azeez. Above, Soldier, reinforced by his two goals in the Valencia Cup, and his forward-feeling of the season, Carlos Fernández.Follow Vrsaljko, come back Beautiful that whenever he played he did well, Simeone doubted between two men: if you start Saponjic at the top or that Correa and Llorente play above do it in the middle. I’ll bet on the latter, it seems. In this match where he already walks without a net. But with Koke back. The days are finally over without him. And Koke in the field improves everything. The torture of days without Koke is over. Those full of blows. With defeats, frustrations, the parties whose points stopped counting three by three. Without Koke, Atlético has not won in a month, the Copa del Rey was left in León and the Spanish Super Cup on penalties against Madrid. Without Koke, defeat at Ipurua, defeat at the Bernabéu and draw with Leganés at the Metropolitan. Without Koke deepens the lack of goal (two in five games) and preparation in the center.But today Koke returns, the captain to his place and the bracelet to his arm. When it may not be noticed, even if it is always the one that runs the most, the one that wears the most, but alas when he is not there, there is no footballer whose absence is accused more. There are the numbers. And they scream.last_img read more

Spaniards around the world: Hugo López, José Kanté, Onwu …

first_imgMuch better was the Asturian striker Hugo López, who signed the first poker of his career in the victory by four goals to zero of Dhofar FC against Al Nahda. Salalah’s are second in the First Division of Oman, just three points from Seeb. Yes, he is the leader, although in the Indian I-League, the Mohun Bagan of Kibu Vicuña, who this weekend achieved a meritorious victory (6-2) against Neroca. The central Cordoba Fran González signed a ‘hat-trick’ and his partner on the back line, Fran Morante, also scored. Joseba Beitia, on the other hand, gave three assists.In the Indian Super League, bad news for López Habas’ ATK, which fell 1-3 against Chennaiyin and failed to become the first club to link five consecutive victories this season; and good for Manuel Onwu, who scored and assisted in the triumph (2-1) of Odisha against North East United. Since his arrival on Josep Gombau’s team, the Navarrese striker has scored four goals and given an assist in three games. It was also a great weekend for the Gohar goal of the Andalusian physical trainer Pepe Losada, who defeated the Sanat-Naft 1-2 and managed to leave the relegation zone in the First Division of Iran.On the opening day of the Thai League (First Division of Thailand) he highlighted Sergio Suarez, which only needed five minutes to overtake Port FC against Nakhom Ratchasima. David Rochela also started and the lions ended up scoring 4-1. They also won the Chonburi of Carli de Murga, the Ratchaburi of Javier Patiño and the Pathum United of Daniel García ‘Toti’ and Álvaro Silva.Michel, undefeated in MexicoIn America, Pumas stands out, who had to overcome against Toluca to keep his undefeated in the MX League. The team led by Michel González ended up winning 2-3 and leads the Mexican First Division alone. Although in Bolivia, the Real Potosí of Fran Pastor also starred in a prestigious victory, which won 4-1 to Jorge Wilstermann, champion of the last Clausura. The Spaniard also scored two goals: he opened the can in the 6 ‘and put his team back in the 63’. Spanish soccer players and coaches competing outside our borders continue to give what to talk about. José Kanté’s scoring streak with Warsaw Legia, Hugo Lopez’s goal poker in Oman or Benali’s first triumph as coach of Ittihad Tanger, among others, marked the weekend in a ‘Spanish for the world’ key.The good news comes to TripoliEverything seemed to indicate that the season would be bitter again in Tripoli, but a run of good results has risen to the Asteras, the most ‘Spanish’ team in Greece, to the group for the championship in the Super League helena. The group of Ángel Martínez, Dani Suárez, José Valiente, Borja Fernández, Eneko Capilla, Xesc Regis, Luis Fernández, Sito Pascual, Adrián Riera and Eneko Jauregui defeated Volos 0-1 and, after chaining five days without losing, momentarily occupies a sixth place that would allow him to fight for a place in Europe. Óscar Whalley’s OFI Crete could take it away if he defeats Atromitos on Monday.Another team that crosses an oasis in the desert is FC Voluntari de Pablo de Lucas, who defeated Chindia Targoviste with the Spaniard in ’11’ 1-2 and, after winning three of his last four games, begins to dream of a stay in the Romanian First Division that is still far away. In Poland it is much closer to Górnik Zabrze, who won his third consecutive victory at home after defeating Arka 2-0. Igor Angulo missed a penalty in the first half, but he avenged his mistake by opening the score after an assist from Jesús Jiménez seven minutes from the end.He also missed a penalty Erik Expósito and his team, the Slask Wroclaw, did pay dearly. Those from Wrocław could not count on Israel Port and did not go from zero to a draw in a direct duel for the top positions of the Ekstraklasa against Pogon. At the top of the Polish First Division, the Legia de Warsaw will continue for another week despite its draw (2-2) in the Rakow field. The legionaries saved a point thanks to the Catalan José Kanté, who returned to ‘wet’ and already has 10 points in his last 11 official matches.Continuing on the Ekstraklasa, Dani Ramírez played his first official minutes with Lech Poznan, who could not take any prize from his visit to Krakow. He also debuted as a starter, in this case at LKS Lodz, former Antequera Antonio Dominguez. The ‘gentlemen of the spring’, in whose ’11’ also formed Carlos Moros, Pirulo and Samu Corral, reaped an insufficient draw at home in front of Angel Garcia’s Plock. Colistas continue.Luckier had St. Gallen, who without Victor Ruiz, sanctioned, fell on his visit to Lucerne. Those of San Galo, who did have the marshal Jordi Quintillà, continue to lead the Swiss Super League thanks to the stumbling block of the Young Boys, who fell 2-1 in the field of Lugano, a team that has the Spanish Luis Sánchez in his sports direction. He is also the leader, although in Azerbaijan, the Qarabag, which hit Zira 0-6 with the collaboration of Jaime Romero, who signed his first goal for riders since November 22.You have to go back further, until September 29, to remember the penultimate goal of Aleix Garcia with the Belgian Mouscron. Penultimate because the Catalan midfielder on loan from Manchester City became the protagonist of his team’s victory in the Waregem field. He first attended Osabutey in the 0-1 and then signed his fifth goal in the Pro League with a great shot from outside the area. De Fauw spicy a meeting that ended with a visiting victory.Xavi, closer to another title with Al SaddIn Asia, a new triumph of Xavi Hernández’s Al Sadd, which without Gabi Fernández in the call imposed on Qatar SC on penalties and acceded to the semifinals of the QSL Cup, was also noteworthy. It was also a good weekend for the coach of Vigo Oscar Bruzón, whose team, Bashundara Kings, started the Bangladesh Premier League with a minimum win over Baridhara. The competition also started, in this case the League Cup, in Japan: the Osaka Cherry Tree Michelangelo Lotina he beat Yamaga 4-1, while Isaac Cuenca’s Sendai, without the Spaniard in the call, fell 5-2 on his visit to Urawa. 01 ‘: Toluca 1-0 Pumas 33 ‘: Toluca 1-1 Pumas 37 ‘: Toluca 2-1 Pumas 58 ‘: Toluca 2-2 Pumas 69 ‘: Toluca 2-3 Pumas Pumas goes back to remain undefeated in the MX League.

The Emelec of Ismael Rescalvo, meanwhile, tied (2-2) in the Orense field.The Opening in Uruguay also started, where Peñarol managed to start the championship with victory thanks to the Catalan striker Xisco Jiménez. Despite not playing a great game, the team led by Diego Forlán took the three points of the Century Champion. Xisco made the 1-0 in the 10 ‘, Cerro managed to tie in half an hour but Jesus Trindade, already in the 90’, unleashed the madness in Montevideo. He suffered much less Envigado in Colombia. The team led by José Arastey won Atlético Bucaramanga 4-0, which ended with a three-day run without knowing the win.Although in Morocco, the Spanish coach Ittihad Tanger also resumed the flight Juan Pedro Benali, who achieved his first victory in charge of the blue and white after defeating FAR Rabat 2-1. They continue to decline, although salvation is only one point away.

Nico Melamed, the first coveted parrot from Generation Z

International in lower categories with Spain including the U19, his other suitor is the Argentine team. Although Melamed was born in Castelldefels and has always lived in Spain, the albiceleste has it in the spotlight in case the circumstances occurred, difficult due to the matter of his residence.But not only is his mother born in Argentina, but his grandfather was Felipe Ribaudo, a remembered player of Estudiantes de La Plata because conquered two Libertadores (1968 and 1969) and an Intercontinental Cup (1968). ‘Girlfriends’ is not without Melamed.

Barça’s medical services foresee a plague of injuries

first_imgTraditionally, the most conflictive months of injury during the season are usually at the beginning of the season, August and September, coinciding with the return of the players’ vacation period, and the last months of the course, when the workload has built up and forces begin to falter. Curiously here we find “The perfect storm”, according to club sources, since “the two-month break coincides with the final stretch.”This same season, without going any further, in the months of August and September a total of ten injured were accumulated, five per month. Namely: Messi (soleus), Neto (left hand scaphoid and operation), Suárez (soleus), Dembélé (femoral biceps) and Junior (knee ligament), in August, and Umtiti (foot), Alba (femoral biceps), Messi (soleus relapse), Ansu Fati (patellar tendon) and Dembélé (femoral biceps) again, in September. Also, in the club they do not forget that Leo was injured in his first training session of the season.All these antecedents force the medical services to multiply the scenarios before the possibility of an injury plague. In fact, This year up to a total of twelve players have had problems of greater or lesser magnitude in the hamstrings and in the joints: Dembélé and Suárez even undergoing surgery.As of today there are only two players on the roster who have emerged immune to injury. Curiously, we are talking about the two big signings of the summer: Frenkie de Jong and Antoine Griezmann. An internal report from the medical services of FC Barcelona makes clear the enormous concern within the club for the health of its players. And we are not talking precisely about the coronavirus virus but about the high risk of injury in the event that activity is restarted after two months of confinement.In the most optimistic scenario, the possibility of suffering “between five to ten injuries” during the first month of competition is emphasized. There are multiple reasons for making this type of forecast: two-month period of confinement with its inevitable consequences on physical fitness, deficit training due to the protocol set by LaLiga, absence of friendlies to help catch the competition rhythm, insufficient time for recovery of muscle fatigue between matches and matches -se speaks for 72 hours-, high temperatures that will affect the effort and maximum mental demand when playing the decisive final stretch of LaLiga and the Champions in just over two months.Also in the report Special emphasis is placed on prevention work during the rehabilitation phase “in the hamstrings and joints.” Hence, training before the start of the competition must focus on minimizing the risks with “a specific job” in the most risky players or those with a history. Antonio Gómez, the physical trainer of the first team that supervises strength work in the gym, will have a prominent role in this prevention work.Taking into account that the current Quique Setién squad is one of the shortest in LaLiga, with only 19 footballers, With the added handicap of a long-term injured player, Dembélé, among them, although also with the presence of Ansu Fati, we are talking about a limit situation, especially thinking that after the League the Champions League will come.last_img read more

Mimes for the thirties

first_imgThe Barca has up eight thirty what is going to they’ve particular cares on this come againso particular person to coaching, way more after the very early damage of Samuel Umtiti. Of the eight footballers who’ve crossed the threshold of 30 years, six have suffered accidents this season. Probably the most severe, these of Suarez (soleus and meniscus of the proper knee, operation included in January); Dawn (three muscle accidents, two on the left leg and one on the proper); Messi (damage and relapse in the soleus of the proper leg); and Internet (Scaphoid fracture of the left hand and damage to the left ankle). Rakitic you may have had Achilles tendon issues and Pique, on the left calf and ankle of the identical leg). Single Vidal and Busquets have survived with slight issues. The Chilean suffered a blow on the left leg earlier than the recreation in opposition to Levante; and Busquets had dizziness the Slavia day in Prague and fever earlier than the December Traditional in opposition to Madrid, through which he was not in eleven.Setien feels optimistic as a result of it considers a bonus that the first coachings be particular person. That can enable every of the veterans to do a selected job and that the readaptation is simpler for when the time comes to coach in a gaggle. It’s straightforward to see in the preseason how the youthful gamers (now it might be the case of Ansu, but in addition of Semedo, Junior, De Jong) take the approach lengthy earlier than than veterans. The distinction is clear and typically that distinction in the set-up it could possibly trigger bodily issues. That’s why that is first part of coaching at Barça could have loads to do with the work that’s often carried out by bodily trainers when the season progresses, through which every participant calls for a selected preparation that, on this case, might be carried from the first days. The Alba’s case is a type of extra worriesAs a result of if the competitors resumes you might be subjected to matches each three days. The biceps femoris overload is a menace for your breaks. Junior might have a particular position if the season ends finishing to finish the aspect. Suarez has already declaredFor his half, he must show himself in turns and in touch with colleagues, however apparently his Restoration has been good. Messi too a labored intensively throughout confinement. He is aware of that, at the age of 33, he wants to guard himself loads. The soleus has began to assault him this yr; and he has recognized methods to bear his outdated discomfort in the abductor. In fact, he will probably be one among the gamers in focus consideration. He has appeared very high quality on the return, exemplary as at all times.Piqué, Busquets or Vidal have been proven to have privileged physicist. The primary two have a decrease physique that has prevented many muscle accidents. The Chilean, immediately, he’s a “savage” as outlined by Eder Sarabia. The one who has toned down this yr has been Rakitic, after some spectacular seasons. The Croatian had a nice element with the membership in November, when regardless of not having an excessive amount of Valverde I stop voluntarily play with croatia to recuperate from discomfort in the Achilles tendon. That allowed him to begin enjoying, and effectively, though then he stopped once more somewhat.To this present day, and regardless of key additions to the spine of Barça as Ter Stegen, Lenglet, De Jong or Griezmann, the thirties nonetheless carry the singing voice Barça and their care and efficiency will depend upon the way forward for Barça in the League and Champions if the season resumes.last_img read more
