TODAY / Tony makes himself felt in the victory of Betis

El consejo de administración del conjunto altoaragonés le había confirmado en el cargo hasta el partido con los verdiblancos, pero la derrota apunta a una posible destitución a pesar de que cuenta con el apoyo de su plantilla.

El Huesca, que sólo ha ganado un partido en esta Liga, sigue hundido en el último puesto de la tabla y además agrava su situación desde el punto de visto moral.

Todo lo contrario que el conjunto de Manuel Pellegrini, que con la victoria pone tierra de por medio con la parte baja, ya que la aumenta su ventaja con respecto al descenso a siete puntos y puede empezar a mirar hacia arriba.

La primera parte estuvo igualada, con una gran presión de ambos conjuntos sobre la salida del balón rival y mayor posesión local en los inicios pero que se fue decantado para el lado verdiblanco conforme transcurrieron los minutos.

El equipo azulgrana apenas inquietó a su rival en el primer tiempo y solo realizó un remate entre los tres palos, ya en tiempo de prolongación, mientras que el Betis, cargando el juego por su costado izquierdo con combinaciones entre Sergio Canales, Aitor Ruibal y Loren Morón, se aproximó más al área contraria pero tampoco llevó gran peligro.

De hecho, la mejor ocasión fue un remate de Loren en el minuto 23, tras una pérdida de Pedro López, que fue abortado por el griego Dimitrios Siovas lanzándose al suelo.

Tras el tiempo de descanso, la situación no cambió demasiado, con el equipo de Manuel Pellegrini con una ligera superioridad en la posesión pero desarrollándose el juego mayoritariamente en el centro del terreno.

En el minuto 78, después de un córner, un preciso centro de Emerson Leite desde la derecha fue rematado por Aissa Mandi para poner el 0-1.

El Betis acabó cerrando el partido en el tiempo añadido con otro centro medido, en este caso de Nabil Fekir sobre el paraguayo Antonio Sanabria, que cabeceó en boca de gol para poner el 0-2.

TODAY / Osasuna and the cold freeze Real Madrid

Los operarios de Osasuna fueron los artífices de que el encuentro entre navarros y madrileños comenzara a la hora prevista gracias a la gran labor realizada retirando nieve durante todo el día.

Entre zonas blancas y verdes, los jugadores de Zidane se adueñaron de la posesión de balón desde el inicio moviendo el esférico de lado a lado sin llegar con claridad a la meta defendida por Sergio Herrera.

Osasuna se fue estirando hasta tener la primera ocasión en el minuto 30.

Rubén García puso un centro preciso desde la esquina para que Oier rematase entre los tres palos. Courtois se quitó el balón de encima con unos reflejos felinos evitando el 1-0.

Los de Arrasate trataron de replegar rápido cada vez que su oponente tuvo el esférico en su poder. Benzema no logró conectar con un Hazard, que regresó al once titular tras varias jornadas sin poder hacerlo. El belga no tuvo la presencia en el partido que debe mostrar un futbolista de su nivel.

El frío, el cansancio y el estado del césped no permitieron ver una buena primera parte, en la que Osasuna también hizo méritos para entorpecer el juego blanco.

Los merengues saltaron a la segunda mitad moviendo el balón de manera mucho más rápida con la idea de sorprender a su rival. Asensio ‘pinchó’ el esférico de manera exquisita antes de lanzar a puerta sin encontrar el premio final. Fue el primer disparo entre los tres palos del Real Madrid a los 48 minutos.

Roberto Torres desaprovechó una buena ocasión que pudo significar el primer tanto. El disparo con la pierna izquierda no pudo encontrar puerta.

Los visitantes introdujeron en el terreno de juego a Isco y Mariano para ganar presencia en el medio campo y verticalidad en ataque. El Real Madrid no podía con su oponente y Osasuna se fue hacia arriba. Los espacios aparecieron y los de Pamplona buscaron la sorpresa.

Finalmente, Osasuna sumó un nuevo punto ante un Real Madrid que no supo encontrarse en los 90 minutos que duró un partido marcado por el frío y la nieve.

La Comisión Médica de la Asociación Paraguaya de Fútbol informó hoy que tras la última toma de muestras realizada al plantel de Cerro Porteño se detectó un caso positivo al COVID-19.

Siguiendo los protocolos e indicaciones, el afectado -de quien se resguarda su identidad- fue puesto en cuarentena y bajo los cuidados correspondientes.

Así también, todo el plantel volverá a someterse al rigor del hisopado para descartar la existencia de un brote.

Arsenal y Newcastle se enfrentaron hoy en el Emirates Stadium por la primera ronda del tradicional torneo inglés.

Si bien le costó, y mucho, al Arsenal, se impuso ya sobrepasando los 100’ de juego gracias a los goles de Smith Rowe (109’) y Pierre Emerick Aubameyang (117’).

Por su lado, Miguel Almirón jugó hasta los 81’ y, como ya viene siendo habitual, se llevó los elogios de los comentaristas e internautas ante su colosal labor, más defensiva que ofensiva, teniendo en cuenta las características del Newcastle.

El cuadro ‘urraca’, dirigido por el veterano Steve Bruce, tiene poquísimo gol y solo anotó un tanto en los últimos cinco partidos.

De esta manera, el defensor del título continúa en carrera y espera rival en la siguiente ronda.

Los culés sentenciaron el choque en el primer tiempo con un tempranero gol de francés Antoine Griezmann y un doblete del argentino Leo Messi.

El equipo del estratega holandés Ronald Koeman rubricó el 0-4 con otro tanto de Griezmann ante un Granada que jugó el cuarto de hora final con diez al ser expulsado con roja directa Jesús Vallejo en el minuto 78.

Es la tercera victoria al hilo de un Barcelona que comienza a dar muestras de una progresión futbolística después de un complicado arranque de temporada.
