Libertad destroyed Cerro Porteño in his new pot, with pure effectiveness and with a decisive Antonio Bareiro, something that is already customary when the rival on duty is the Cyclone. The “Demon” contributed a goal and an assist so that Gumarelo quickly sentenced the lawsuit in Barrio Obrero and retake the leadership of the Apertura tournament again.

The development of the game globally was quite even, but Libertad did not fail in offense practically and before each waste of Cerro, he responded with a goal and ended up sealing a win in Barrio Obrero.

In the first half, both had great chances, mainly with mid-distance shots, since inaccuracies abounded, with a very uncomfortable Cerro due to Gumarelo’s strategic pressure on key men, such as Claudio Aquino and Ángel Cardozo Lucena.

Lucena was precisely the first to warn with a great shot inside the area, but Martín Silva covered in a great way. Libertad responded with a “missile” from Blas Cáceres and little by little it made a better impression than the local in attack.

“Tacuara” Cardozo tried a tremendous shot from a very distant position and Miguel Martínez barely served.

Gumarelo, who was injured after the elimination in the Copa Libertadores, came in the complementary game.

After a good collective move on the left, “Tacuara” assisted with a tremendous quality chest and Héctor “Tito” Villalba, friendly with good play and goals, signed the 1-0 partial.

Libertad punished Cerro very hard, since in the previous one, Mauro Boselli “ate” an incredible goal. Robert Morales overflowed and gave him only in front of the goal, without a goalkeeper, but he screwed up the ball incredibly.

About 10 minutes into the complementary, the preferred perpetrator of Cerro Porteño, Antonio Bareiro, entered.

The demon took just over ten minutes to do his thing and confirm that he is the lord and master of the New Pot. After an overflow from Blas Cáceres and a deflected center, he found a ball inside the area and made it 2-0.

But Bareiro wanted more and to leave his stamp again and in a masterful counterattack, he only attended the boy Julio Enciso, who finally sealed the categorical 3-0.

Libertad thrashed, recovered his motivation and above all, he is once again the leader of the tournament, which he had lost for a day at the hands of Nacional.

The Paraguayan striker missed the La Plata classic, between his team, Gimnasia y Esgrima and Estudiantes, due to myocarditis detected by the club’s cardiologists, after having twice acquired the COVID-19 virus, which leaves sequelae even in players of football, which in theory have more defenses due to their athletic preparation.

“After cardiological studies, it was found that the player Lucas Barrios suffers from mild myocarditis, of a viral inflammatory nature”, as a result of the reinfection of COVID-19

“The medical recommendations say that I have to stop for a while. It is good that we give the message to people. It is the second time that COVID-19 has caught me, I had antibodies and everything. I live this moment that is not beautiful for anyone “The important thing is slight and I can recover soon,” said Barrios, also leaving a message to the clubs, so that much emphasis is placed on the cardiological part of the athletes.



Azzaro asked for Pizzi’s resignation and exploded against Matías Rojas: “Racing has the only Paraguayan in history without eggs”

After the 0-5 suffered against River in the Argentine Super Cup, Racing he put together a series of good results but he never finished convincing from the football aspect and during the defeat of The academy in view of Arsenal, a Flavio Azzaro the temperature was rising and although Juan Antonio Pizzi Y Matias Rojas they were his favorite targets, almost no player was spared from criticism.

With regard to Rojas, he had already blanked out on his social networks and on his Crónica TV program that he hated him and this Sunday he again attacked him with different messages from before the match began in Sarandí: “The whore who gave birth to him! It bothers me just to see it! “he wrote alongside a screenshot of the match’s official broadcast. But she did not stop there and before the statistics of her first 50 games in Racing, Azzaro accompanied her with a personal one: “A hundred lost balls in sectors where the rival’s potential goals are”.

“The only Paraguayan in history without eggs is Racing, Matías Rojas”, He finished off his anger against the talented midfielder with a past in Lanús and Defensa y Justicia.

Juan Antonio Pizzi Nor was he saved from the fury of Azzaro, who requested the urgent resignation of DT a day after Racing’s debut in the Copa Libertadores: “He lost to Arsenal, Godoy Cruz, 5-0 in a final against River, he tied with Aldosivi at home being infinitely bottom, never had an idea of ​​the game, papers in Copa Argentina, the players feel that the work of the week is outdated: Cit is accomplished. “

I say it without caring about the result: Víctor Blanco must change to Pizzi today. This project has no direction. You have to look for a DT up to the task. The team is a mess … It’s the worst coach Racing had in recent years. I hope the gilada is not clouded by the classic. The team and the DT are a horror, “he said.

They were also not exempt from the sticks Lucas Orban, Leonel Miranda and Mauricio Martínez. The archer Gabriel Arias placeholder image he is one of the few untouchables and to that approved list, Azzaro added to the youth Juan Cáceres.

This is how it happened, and just one week of euphoria and viral outpouring against Independiente to the anger and impotence for another defeat of a team that still cannot find its best version beyond the results.

The six Premier teams that would have challenged UEFA

Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham have agreed to be part of the new competition. The measure would be a challenge to the new format of the Champions League.

UEFA will announce this Monday the new 36-team format for the Champions League, which will take effect from the 2024 season onwards. In this framework, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham have agreed to join the European Super League., a separatist competition that they plan to start in 2022.

As reported The Times, the Big Six would have made the decision to separate from a deep disagreement with the new planning for the Champions League. Real Madrid, Barcelona, ​​Atlético de Madrid, Juventus, Inter and Milan are others that could join the initiative, while Bayern Munich and PSG rejected the proposal.

The new Super League plan will have the financial backing of JP Morgan and clubs that initially join will be able to win a prize of up to 360 million euros. What’s more, the competition would be composed of 20 teams: 15 permanent and five to be classified annually.

The harsh statement of the Premier League against him imposed on the European Super League

“The Premier League condemns any proposal that violates the principles of open competition and sporting merit that are at the heart of the pyramid of national and European football.

Fans of any club in England and across Europe can currently dream that their team can rise to the top and play against the best. We believe that the concept of a European Super League would destroy this dream.

The Premier League prides itself on hosting a compelling and competitive soccer competition that has made it the most viewed league in the world. Our success has allowed us to make an unparalleled financial contribution to the national soccer pyramid.

A European Super League will undermine the appeal of the entire game and have a profoundly damaging impact on the immediate and future prospects of the Premier League and its member clubs, and all those in football who depend on our funding and solidarity to prosper.

We will work with fans, the FA, EFL, PFA and LMA, as well as other stakeholders, at home and abroad, to uphold the integrity and future prospects of English football in the best interest of the game. “

With the head of the white tribe destabilizing the entity it is impossible to plan the next season. The Real Jaén coach, Juan Arsenal, has it clear. “We are at a height of the season in which we must try to renew those footballers who could serve us for the next.

Because even if I have a one-year contract, I have to see the project so as not to go through the negative vicissitudes that we are currently experiencing ».

He added that «my first option is to continue at Real Jaén. For that I signed my contract. But I have found a very complicated day to day. If there is no future, it would be ridiculous to think of a project without the necessary plans. I want to continue but there has to be an improvement plan ».

Arsenal underlines the need to “launch a project according to the entity’s possibilities, but there must be guarantees. If not, it cannot be planned. We have started to put into practice a work methodology, a game philosophy that has been supported in these two months and that could be extended in the event of player renewals. But you can’t talk to anyone with this institutional situation. It is sad, but it is reality. We are on the way to achieve the goal, to save Real Jaén. Now the ideal would be for this work to have continuity to avoid starting from scratch. We have laid the foundations but without a future we cannot continue planning. The one from Hellín emphasizes that “we have to save ourselves as soon as possible. The players are giving an extraordinary performance. When this goal is achieved I will make the decision about my future. But he acknowledges that “it is complicated, our best guarantee is the work that is being done. They feel better footballers than in past courses. But you cannot tell a player to renew without knowing the future of the entity ».
