Antoine Griezmann prolongs his state of grace and, with a pinch of luck, has beaten Unai Simón after hunting a rebound inside the area (0-1). The play had been the work of the Leo Messi-Jordi Alba tandem. The Argentine has found a tremendous hole on the left side, the one from L’Hospitalet yields behind for Leo and his shot is blocked by the defense with such bad luck that the French striker is frank, who shoots Unai.


The joy of Koeman’s team has not lasted long. Nothing, wow. Athletic, who did not deserve to lose, has reacted in a big way. Williams has received in the frontal, has scrambled perfect and has connected a perfect inside pass so that De Marcos beat Ter Stegen before the indecision of Lenglet and Alba.


The Frenchman is with the goblin. Again Antoine Griezmann has delivered a very harsh punishment for Athletic. It was minute 77 and a great play linked between Dembélé, Jordi Alba, Messi and Antoine ended at 2-1. Great pass from L’Hospitalet to Rosario, heeled on the left wing, millimeter assistance for Griezmann and a final shot for Unai Simón. Two sparks from the former Atlético, who has not exactly made a game to shoot rockets either, but has ‘executed’.


When Barça was almost singing its first title of the year, the premiere of the Koeman era, Asier Villalibre, the Buffalo of Gernika, appeared in a set piece, after Muniain’s assistance, to score the 2-2 in the 89th minute. It is one of the strengths of Athletic and one of the weak points of the Barcelona team and has been in evidence. A tremendous https://worldbets.top/en/1xbet/ morale boost for Marcelino’s team, which has set 90 minutes full of intensity.

Luis Enrique returns to ‘spy’ on Pedri

And if we said that the 2-2 had been a morale blow for the lions, it was very clear as soon as extra time started. Spectacular what the two teams were not offering in La Cartuja, but Iñaki Williams wanted to go further. He received at the peak of the area, cut in in the presence of Antoine Griezmann and connected a huge shoe that slipped through the same square of Ter Stegen’s frame. Impossible for the German and for any human being on the face of the earth.

Athletic gave FC Barcelona a great scare at the time of the game in the final of the Spanish Super Cup at La Cartuja in Seville. Raúl García finished off a precise cross from Iker Muniain on goal, and put Athletic Club ahead on the scoreboard.

The VAR, on the other hand, canceled the action for offside of the forward lion. At the time of the Atletic captain’s strike, García’s right foot was ahead of Barça’s defensive line.

In the VAR, Hernández Hernández reviewed the action and notified Gil Manzano on the field of play, and the Extremaduran annulled the goal.

This VAR review was the first with the new technological implementation, in which the players saw ‘in situ’, on the stadium video scoreboard, the images that the canary had in the VOR room. Therefore, all members of both teams were able to see the entire review phase of Hernández Hernández.

Miralem Pjanic almost certainly did not imagine that well into the month of January, looking back, he was barely going to reach 40% of the total minutes played. He landed at Barça with the starting poster, many assumed that he would definitively separate Sergio Busquets from Ronald Koeman’s typical team and that he would form a couple with Frenkie de Jong that we would recite by heart in the weekly Barça 2020/21 line-ups.

Miralem Pjanic Ronald Koeman

But when four months of official competition have passed, the situation of the Bosnian is, to say the least, alarming. 


The last sign of this distrust of the Wembley hero towards the Balkan came in San Mamés last Wednesday. Beyond linking his second consecutive substitution, Miralem saw how he spent practically the entire second half warming up and going through a damn cold without Ronald thinking it appropriate to call him to participate in one of the best games of the Barça team (he only made two changes ). In fact, in the last two matches for FC Barcelona, ​​the former Juventus and Lyon team barely accumulated 16 minutes. It is still significant that in two of the best performances of the Barcelona team this year and when it seems that things are taking off Ronald has barely counted on the player born in Tuzla, who has already raised his voice to make it clear that he is not satisfied at all with its relevance so far in this Barça. 


This is Koeman’s call for Granada – Barça

The gala eleven, increasingly profiled

The fact is that if we refer to his participation and the continuity that the coach has given Miralem, we can only come to the conclusion that one of two, or Koeman does not like his style or is not happy with his way of playing. work on a day-to-day basis. Only on two occasions so far this year has he linked two consecutive titles. Of the 2,070 total minutes that the Barça team has played so far, Pjanic has participated in 835, which represents 40%. Little bit. Very little for an experienced footballer who came to be the helm of the new project with De Jong. 

Real Madrid were eliminated in a grotesque way in the Copa del Rey against Alcoyano who equaled Militato’s initial goal in the absence of ten minutes and sentenced in extra time when he was with ten players. Not even the entry of the heavyweights, such as Benzema, Kroos or Hazard, straightened out a game with bad feelings in which the whites did not know how to make the most of their advantage and a Second B team ended up taking the colors.

El Collao Stadium, game played without an audience as a measure for the Covid-19 pandemic.

Zinedine Zidane showed with his eleven that he did not trust the game and Víctor Chust was the only starting youth squad in the center of defense. Lunin was another of the novelties under sticks and also highlighted the presence of Mariano at the attack point. Zidane based the strength on a core formed by Casemiro, Isco and Valverde.

Madrid imposed its dominance from the beginning against Alcoyano who was clear that he had to play closely together and wait for his opportunity to come out with long balls. The targets had many approaches, although they lacked finesse in the final meters. Their superiority was not reflected on occasions and this encouraged the locals to maintain a high intensity.

Danger in the centers

Fede Valverde had the best Madrid chance in the first half with a powerful shot that the 41-year-old veteran José Juan cleared for a corner. In the corner kick, Militao ran into danger and the goalkeeper again intervened with success.

Alcoyano had a hard time leaving, but found his chance in a cross headed by Mourad, which forced Lunin to fly, although the play was invalidated by a doubtful offside.

Great header from Militao

The people from Alicante held on and stayed one step away from reaching the break with the draw. Marcelo sent a precise thread to the head of Militao, who scored with a great shot. Madrid dealt a hard blow to Alicante morale before taking air in the booth.

All the goals of Alcoyano – Real Madrid

The goal made the Madrid team go out to speculate much more in the second half. The passing of the minutes benefited him and he entered a phase of false calm that a nervous Zidane did not like at all. The Madrid coach acted by changing Mariano, who played the second yellow shortly before, for Benzema to try to sentence the crash. Something was wrong with him. And he was right.

Vinicius fails and tie

After a failure by Vinicius with everything in favor against José Juan, Alcoyano left Madrid frozen in a corner kick. The defense swallowed a ball combed to the first post and Solbes scored on an empty goal in the second. A goal in the absence of ten minutes that left little room for the whites to avoid extra time.

José Juan was the hero again with a feline stretched to a point-blank header from Lucas Vázquez and Casemiro was unable to take advantage of the rejection. Madrid squeezed hanging balls and requested a penalty in a Militao fall in a din. The ideas did not come and the game went into overtime.
