Summary of Osasuna 0 Real Madrid 0, by La Liga of Spain 2020/2021

Spain is being hit, relentlessly, by a cold wave composed of a merciless snow storm. Mainly cities like Madrid, the capital, for which some activities had to be suspended.

Among other things, the Atlético de Madrid match, the leader that has the highest category of Spanish football, could not be developed. Even the game that Real Madrid had to face as a visitor to Osasuna was also in doubt.

However, after much deliberation, those strategically commanded by Zinedine Zidane were able to go out onto the playing field of El Sadar, in Pamplona, ​​with the mission of taking advantage of the context to climb to the top of the Spanish League.

On this occasion, Merengue, who also glimpses what will be the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League in a while, had to meet face to face with a cast that has been designing a very adverse campaign.

Under that orbit, all forecasts predicted a quiet victory for the visitor. In any case, the truth is that the first half did not expose too many lights and much less goal situations, so the game ended tied 0-0.

Unfortunately, the complementary stage was not much different. Real Madrid tried to seize the ball and manage the times, but the truth is that they did not have great arguments to hurt the hosts too much.

As a consequence, the match ended in a scoreless draw. In this way, Zidane’s men failed to take over the top of the standings. Of course: they annulled two goals in a fair way.

We do not discover anything if we affirm that Barcelona is going through one of the most complex moments in recent times, without being able to find its way.

Is that the team now led tactically by Ronald Koeman not only does not play well but also does not achieve good results. And patience is already wearing thin.

The Argentine was dispatched with a phenomenal assist that found Frenkie De Jong in the area. The Dutchman, who appeared by surprise, defined with class and made it 1-0.

Barcelona beat Real Sociedad; Spanish League: summary and goals

Barcelona added its second consecutive victory in casa, again with suffering, in a game in which he distilled good feelings in the first half, in which he came back, but suffered in the second before the push of Real Sociedad (2-1).

Those of Ronald Koeman offered an hour of good football, but in the final half hour, Imanol Alguacil’s men had the ball and closed in on Ter Stegen’s goal, who was decisive in a great intervention in the 84th minute from Isak’s shot.

Jordi Alba, author of 1-1 and assistant in 2-1, was decisive in the victory. It took a long time, but Koeman seems to have discovered the formula for his team to play at a good level, although yes, not during the whole game and his team ended up asking for the time.

In the first hour of the game his team worked like clockwork, he dominated the situation thanks to the control of the midfield, where he finally recovered the traditional role of midfielders in the Barça game, a facet in which Frenkie de Jong, but also Pedri , who formed a great partnership with Messi.

Koeman blamed each of his players in the one-on-one game and Barça signed one of the best 45 minutes of the season. Also behind, with the presence of two young players like Mingueza and Araujo, the team felt safe, although for this they had to row against the tide, because Real was the one that went ahead on the scoreboard.

From the beginning, the Catalans felt comfortable coming out on the left, with Alba and Braithwaite. The first approach was a good shot from Griezmann (min. 8). La Real did not feel comfortable, did not start from behind and barely led to the opposite field with options.

In attack, the pair formed by Pedri and Messi generated a lot of football. In addition, De Jong felt liberated for once and showed glimpses of that great player who was at Ajax. Busquets swept everything in the medullary and allowed arrivals from the second line of any of the media, also from Griezmann and Braithwaite.

Messi played a fundamental role in the generation of the game, but he was not successful. He finished high in the 23rd, Alba missed the 25th and in the first great opportunity of the Real, those of Imanol Alguacil scored.

It was in a play with many doubts in defense of Barça, in which the San Sebastian did not forgive. Pedri missed and allowed the action of Portu, who put the ball on William inches from the goal line (0-1, min. 28).

In other circumstances, that goal would have sunk the Catalans, but not today and also, it took very little to balance the situation.

Alba caught a ball in the front and with her right placed the ball in Remiro’s goal square (min. 31). Real woke up after the draw, but Barça felt strong. Griezmann had it 2-1 after a great recovery and a shot to the crossbar, Braithwaite also did not hit the mark in 38, but in 43, an assist from Alba allowed de Jong, coming from behind, to score 2-1, in a play initially canceled for offside, but validated by the VAR (min.43).

In the second half, the game was another. La Real came out with a different mentality, had more the ball and controlled the game, but the best chances were for the Catalans, especially in the first minutes.

Messi did not succeed in an action against in superiority and Griezmann could decide the match On two very clear occasions, on the first he only had to push the ball, but he was unable to, and on the second he met a great Remiro who stopped the close shot.

Alguacil put more wood with the entrance of Isak and Koeman responded by putting Aleñá and Trincao into play for Busquets and Griezmann; and the party was increasingly at the side of the San Sebastian.

The threat with two forwards (Isak and William José) stressed the local defensive central axis and the ball was no longer from Barça and doubts appeared again. Pjanic entered for Pedri, who had saved a very clear goal chance by Isak (min. 73) and the Swede had it even clearer in the 84th minute, in an action in which Ter Stegen saved his team.

In the end, Barça took the game and traced the game back, something they had not achieved in a long time.

Barcelona will ask Lionel Messi for a salary reduction for his renewal

Barcelona is going through one of the most complicated moments in recent years due to the poor sporting results of recent seasons and the institutional crisis that led to millions in losses and the departure of Josep María Bartomeu from the presidency.

One of the issues that the controversial manager took on his head is the situation of Lionel Andrés Messi, who has expressed his disagreement with how the club is run for several years and affects him as the natural leader of the clubhouse. He was close to leaving in August, but due to clauses of his contract he had to stay until June 2021 where he would leave.

While the future of Messi is defined, Barcelona will have presidential elections on January 24 and one of the central themes of the campaign is the Argentine footballer, where all the candidates want him to stay, but hide behind the club’s financial crisis to mitigate the impact of his possible departure at the beginning of his executive mandate.

This was suggested by Emili Rousaud, former Vice President and pre-candidate to the presidency of Barcelona, ​​where he mentioned that the salary issue is key and that they would be willing to renew him, but if he makes a considerable reduction; something that seems unlikely in the current market (despite the pandemic) and based on the player’s cold relationship with the club today.

“We have to sit down with Messi to talk about his continuity. There we will put the interests of the club first… Do I want him to stay? Yes. But not at any price. It must be sustainable in wages. If there is no agreement, Messi will not be ”, sentenced Rousaud this weekend.

Of interest: France Football chose the ideal team of all history

Messi’s contract expires in June 2021 and given the possibility that it is free on the market It has been speculated with several clubs for his future, PSG and Manchester City the strongest; the French cast being the new focus of attention after Neymar sentenced last week in Manchester that he wanted to play again with his Argentine friend (with whom he shared glory in Barcelona) and that he would “surely” do it the other year.

Barcelona has not had negotiations with Messi for his renewal, something that normally happens more than a year in advance in long contracts in Europe and more with figures of this caliber. However, the current schism of the club prohibits the managing president in charge of doing so and only until meeting the new boss of the club on January 24 can express negotiations be advanced if they want Messi to stay in Catalonia and retire in the institution who saw him born.
