Valverde received the medical discharge and traveled to London for the semifinal of Champions

Federico Valverde, the Uruguayan midfielder for Real Madrid, traveled to London on Tuesday next to the merengue squad to play the second leg of the Champions League semifinals against Chelsea this Wednesday at 4:00 p.m.

The midfielder underwent a PCR test this Monday in which he had an inconclusive result, so the doctors of the white club carried out another control this Tuesday at 07:00, which was negative, reported the newspaper As de Madrid .

“Now yes. Let’s go! ”, The Uruguayan wrote on his Twitter account when sharing an image before taking the flight together with his companions. In this way, after overcoming the covid-19 and having the sanitary approval, Valverde returned to the squad and undertook the trip with the delegation headed by coach Zinedine Zidane.

The steering wheel will be at the command of Zizou and, although he was isolated since April 18 and his positive was confirmed on April 21, he could appear from the start at Stamofrd Bridge.

The probable merengue team, which will have the return of Sergio Ramos, may have Pajarito on the right wing: Courtois; Militao, Sergio Ramos, Nacho; Fede Valverde, Modric, Casemiro, Kroos, Mendy; Benzema and Vinicius.

Federico Valverde before traveling to London for the return leg of the Champions League semifinals

For Valverde it will be the return to the court after missing the LaLiga games against Getafe, Cádiz, Betis and Osasuna and the first leg against Chelsea in Madrid, which ended 1-1 last week.

Who also traveled this Tuesday was the Brazilian Marcelo, who this Tuesday had to appear as an alternate table delegate in the Madrid elections. Finally, his situation was unlocked, because a woman took his position, so the side traveled with his teammates and should not do so on Wednesday on a private flight, as had been handled.

The winner of the key will be measured against the winner of the semi between Manchester City and PSG, who will have the second leg this Tuesday at 4:00 p.m. and who in the first leg had a 2-1 victory for those led by Pep Guardiola in Paris.

To score goals

The tie in the first leg gives the locals a small advantage against Real Madrid, who will have no choice but to go for goals at the London Coliseum.

“We know we have to go to London to score goals and try to win the game,” said Zidane after the first leg at Alfredo Di Stéfano.

Encouraged after the 2-0 league victory over Osasuna on Saturday, which keeps them alive in the fight for LaLiga, Real Madrid faces a crucial game in a season that has gone from less to more.

Few imagined at the beginning of the season that the Merengue team, weighed down by countless injuries, would be fighting for the League and opting for a new Champions final, after touching the elimination in the group stage of the continental tournament.

“Miracle, nothing. This is work, only work, believe in what we are doing, prepare things and work,” said the French coach Friday at a press conference.

Injuries have been the real ordeal in this campaign for the meringues, who have recovered their captain Sergio Ramos and left-back Ferland Mendy for the match.

Ramos is available again after a month off due to an internal calf muscle injury. His return could not be more providential, since Zidane will not be able to count on Raphael Varane, who suffered “an injury to the right abductor muscles” against Osasuna.

It remains to be seen in what situation Ramos returns, after having resumed collective training last week after his long absence.

Ahead, Zidane could opt for Eden Hazard, prepared after having given him a few minutes against Osasuna and last Tuesday against Chelsea in the first leg, with the untouchable Karim Benzema.

The French coach aspires to reach what would be his fourth Champions League at the head of the merengue team, but he will not have it easy against Chelsea, leathery in defense and dangerous in attack.


“We feel prepared for a great fight and I am sure that we will need a great performance because Real Madrid is going to make us suffer,” said Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel.

The ‘Blues’ who are looking for their second Champions League, after the one they won in 2012, also have their own problems with injuries.

Tuchel hopes to have Antonio Rudiger ready for the match, who left the first leg against Real Madrid with discomfort after a blow to the face. “I think he will play with a mask” against Real Madrid, Tuchel told the media of his club, that it is more difficult to have the Croatian midfielder Mateo Kovacic, already absent in the first leg due to a muscular problem, from which he would have relapsed.

Chelsea’s German coach, finalist in the Champions League last year with PSG, will have Cesar Azpilicueta, Jorginho, N’Golo Kante and Christian Pulisic ready for the match, key men whom he gave rest against Fulham at the end of week.


Champions League: Kylian Mbappé was called up by PSG

Kylian Mbappé, doubt due to a contracture in the right calf, entered the convocation of the PSG to play on Tuesday on the court of Manchester City, in the return of Champions League semi-finals, after having fallen 2-1 in the French capital, his club announced on Monday.

You can see: Varane will miss a duel against Chelsea in the Champions League

Due to this injury, suffered last Wednesday, Mbappé rested on Saturday in a 2-1 win over Lens in Ligue 1.

“I’m optimistic about Kylian. We evaluate him every day. I think he will be able to play.”, said his coach Mauricio Pochettino on Saturday.

Mbappé is the top scorer of PSG in the Champions League this season with 8 goals, including a triplet in Barcelona (4-1) in the round of 16 and a double at Bayern Munich (3-2) in the quarterfinals.

Mario Götze ruled out his signing for Liverpool

Apr 30, 2021 at 8:42 PM


Martí Grau

The German footballer, Mario Götze, says he was about to sign for Liverpool in the past. In a statement for the German sports magazine 11 friends, says that he could have arrived at the English club in 2016, where would have met his coach at Dortmund, Jürgen Klopp.

He considers that the situation of the team that season, eighth in the Premier League, was the reason why he finally did not sign for the club. “Liverpool finished eighth in the league. At the time, the probability of winning the Champions League with Borussia seemed much higher.“.

Götze believes that after the successes achieved at Bayern, going to Liverpool at that time was to lower the level. “He came from Munich, where he had reached the semi-finals of the Champions League on three occasions with Bayern. I wanted to do that again.”

Finally, in 2016 the player decided to return to Borussia Dortmund, club of his origins, where he believed he had more options to win the long-awaited Champions League. The german who in 2013 he left Dortmund for Bayern Munich in a controversial transferIn this way, he returned to the team where he arrived when he was just 8 years old.

Currently in the PSV Eindhoven Dutch, the midfielder has a total of six goals scored in 20 league games. His team is currently second in the table, although far behind Ajax, leader with 12 points of difference and virtual champion of the competition. After a very injury-ridden career, Götze is now enjoying football again, this time in the Netherlands.


Benzema equals Raúl González in the Champions League: 71 goals in 129 games

Real Madrid’s French forward Karim Benzema has equaled former Whites’ captain Raúl González with 71 goals in the Champions League.

In this way, the French Real Madrid player has risen to fourth position in this particular ranking of top scorers led by Cristiano Ronaldo (134 goals).

Karim Benzema has shot to the Polish striker of Bayern Munich, Robert Lewandowski, who has 73 goals and this season he will not be able to add any more since his team is eliminated.

For his part, the Real Madrid striker still has one or two Champions League games ahead of him depending on whether he qualifies for the Champions League final. (Zidane does not throw La Liga but draws revolution: without Modric and Kroos and the doubt of Benzema)

This course, Benzema has 28 goals with the Real Madrid jersey between all competitions. In Champions he has scored six.

His victims this year in the top European competition have been Borussia Mönchengladbach (3 goals), Inter Milan (1), Atalanta (1) and Liverpool (1).


Next Wednesday, Benzema will have a new opportunity to continue climbing positions in this ranking.

If you score two goals against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, Benzema will match Polish striker Robert Lewandowski.

In addition, if Real Madrid passes the round, Benzema will have another opportunity to continue scoring goals in the European competition.


Protagonists charge against UEFA for the new format of the Champions

The Champions League is the most important club competition in the world. Year after year, billions of viewers follow it on TV across the globe, turning it into one of the most fruitful businesses in world football. But it could be even more lucrative, and in pursuit of this is that UEFA has announced a reform that will run from 2024 and that it is highly questioned by the protagonists.

It is a dispute system completely different from the current one that, among other issues, will increase the number of participants, raising it from 32 to 36 teams, with 100 additional matches and a ‘mini-championship’ inspired by chess tournaments that will displace the group stage. In UEFA they speak of a “new and exciting format”, however the modifications did not go down well at all in the schools who usually participate in the competition.

“We may have to ask UEFA and FIFA to extend the year, maybe we can have 400 days per year.”

Josep Guardiola, Manchester City manager

“More and more games, nobody thinks about us, the players? The new format of the Champions League is the least of the evils compared to the Super League “, German Manchester City international Ilkay Gundogan pointed out in reference to the championship promoted by 12 of Europe’s biggest clubs that eclipsed the Champions League and lasted just 48 hours. Gundogan was followed by his coach, Pep Guardiola, who, ironically, said it might be convenient. “request UEFA and FIFA to extend the year” and take it to 400 days. “Every season is similar, the players love to play, but they get injured. UEFA knows it, of course, but does it worry? Definitely not,” he added.

Champions League.

Champions League.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has the same opinion: “The only people who are never consulted are the coaches, the players and the fans.“.

On the eve of drawing 1-1 in the Champions League semi-final first leg against Real Madrid, Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel said “not be happy at all“with the new format:” There are so many new formats: the League of Nations, soon a new Club World Cup (expanded to 24 teams), more teams in the European Championship … They are always more matches, but not more quality. “

UEFA and the Premier join in a cyber boycott

Before presenting the reform to the public, UEFA maneuvered for months, but without a public debate. As he usually does, he negotiated behind the scenes with European Leagues, the association that represents some thirty championships, and especially with the powerful European Club Association (ECA).

Officially UEFA has no intention of making changes to the new format -except for the possible creation of a ‘Final 4’, with the semifinals and final regrouped-, and now he wants to concentrate on the distribution of income and the commercialization of television rights.

Although criticism outweighs praise, the ‘Swiss system’ has at least the advantage of flexibility: in a single group, clubs can meet in ten rounds, as planned now, or eight or six, to reduce the number of matches.


The headquarters of the Champions League final, in danger

Apr 27, 2021 at 7:29 PM


Alberto Teruel

UEFA’s attempt to return the public to the stadiums has suffered a reality check. Turkey, host of the Champions League final, has announced a total nationwide lockdown until May 17 with the aim of reducing the number of cases. This circumstance has forced the highest body of European football to look for alternatives.

UEFA’s initial forecast is that the Champions League final will take place on May 29 at the Atatürk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul. With a capacity of 80,000 spectators, the stadium is expected to host 9,000 fans.Although the measures imposed by Erdogan make it difficult for the event to be celebrated.

The total lockdown comes as Turkey has registered 37,312 new COVID cases and 353 deaths in the last 24 hours. With the desire to reduce the rate of infections, Erdogan has imposed tough measures, among which the need to have an official document that justifies intercity travel stands out. If these measures are maintained, it would be impossible to offer tickets to 9,000 fans.

One of the loudest options to take over from the Atatürk Olympic Stadium is Wembley. However, the English stadium, in which Barça were crowned Champions in 1992 and 2011, seems to be ruled out by UEFA, as this new venue could be an advantage for the English semifinalists, Manchester City and Chelsea.

If the change of venue cannot finally be carried out, the game could be played behind closed doors. The 2020 edition, held at the Da Luz Stadium, set the precedent for an orphaned final by fans in the stands. However, looking at the case of San Mamés, UEFA does not seem willing to renounce the presence of fans.
