Talisman Fede Valverde

first_imgTo this performance is added that Valverde has turned out to be a talisman: He has been a starter 13 times and Madrid does not know what it is to lose if he comes out in the starting lineup. He was not present at the start in the defeats against PSG and Mallorca. Add eight wins and five draws from the initial team and with him the Madrid has scored 30 goals (2.3 per game) and received only six (0.46 per game). Or what is the same: with Valverde in the eleven, Madrid scores more, fits less and, although it can be more decisive, at least it is not defeated. Fede Valverde started the season with difficulties to enter the calls (He stayed out on the first day of LaLiga, against Celta) and has ended up being undisputed to Zidane, that the Uruguayan admirer confesses: “He is a modern player, he always advances, he always wants the ball, he has an impressive route, and not only in attack, he does the same in defense as well. He’s doing well, I’m glad for him. He is playing because he deserves it. ”last_img read more

Dani García is a rock

first_imgThus, its regularity amazes and its presence is indisputable. According to the rojiblancas statistics account @DatAthle, Dani García is the fourth Athletic player in this century to complete the first round without missing a single minute. No one had achieved it since Iraola did it in the 2010-11 campaign. The other two had been Leisure (2008-09) and Karanka (2003-04). His feat in this League can only be matched on this day by the defenders Pau Torres (Villarreal), Kiko Olivas (Valladolid) and Valjent (Mallorca). Dani García meets his second season in Athletic, after arriving from Eibar Libre. It ends its link with the Biscayan club in 2022 and its performance already enters through the eyes of several suitors. Neither injuries nor cards have been with him. Moreover, in Pizjuán he played with the threat of completing a warning cycle, but Zumárraga knew how to keep himself without his performance being affected. And that is another facet in which his game has also evolved this season. Last season he saw 13 cards in 29 games, nine in the first round. This season is still going to the limit, the rivals know it well, but at 29 years old, their maturity and reading have been refined in LaLiga during their second season in Athletic. The middle gives body to the now third least thrashed team in the championship and, with the ball, has been finding the necessary pause to engage its momentum in the core. It is handled in almost 82% of good passes. Athletic started a point of Pizjuán in a high-flying game. They could be all three, but Lopetegui’s asserted their growing second half. Those of Garitano stifled Sevilla in the first part with an intense staging in enemy territory. The incidence of Banega had to be annulled and they fulfilled it anchored to a Dani García who is unstoppable. The midfielder linked the 19 games of the first round without missing a single minute.last_img read more

Abelardo pulls veterania: the average age rises to 28.7 years

first_imgIt is curious, at the same time as paradoxical, that the most inexperienced player in First is the most decisive. Raúl de Tomás has barely participated in 37 games at his 25 years, although their numbers are terrifying: 18 goals. Cabrera, who only accumulates 66 matches in First, is also the safest defender So far, with the guarantee of helping to maintain the zero goal for the first time in the RCDE Stadium The last Sunday. Roca, Embarba and Jonathan Calleri do not reach those 100 matches either.The previous courser, without going any further, the average age It was close to the current one, with 28.1 years Players like Diego López, Sergio García (35) and Esteban Granero (31) were in charge of compensate the prominence of young people. Mario Hermoso, Óscar Melendo, Borja Iglesias or Roca himself were well below those figures. With more youth, Espanyol also managed to get out of its loop of negative results and manage to finish seventh. Whether younger or more adult, the whole of Abelardo sails at a good pace towards the port of salvation. EI football is topical manido, and one of the most widespread is to pull veterania to get out of complex situations, like the one that Espanyol has lived since the season began and entered swampy terrain. Abelardo Fernández is also clear about that premise, and the average age of the alignments has grown ostensibly. Players under 25 years like Adrià Pedrosa, Lluís López, Matías Vargas, Víctor Gómez, Pol Lozano, Fernando Calero or Víctor Campuzano have hardly counted for the Asturian coach so far, a statement of intentions. Bet for Javi Lopez in the right is another one of the cotton tests.The average age from the usual lineups Abelardo has grown up to 28.7 years old, with Diego Lopez such as older (38) Y Marc Roca becoming the Benjamin (23). Among them, they accumulate more than 1,500 matches in First: the starting player prototype already has 139 matches in the top category, which is equivalent to at least four seasons participating regularly. He has no novels this Espanyol. The consolidation of players like the captain (33) and Dídac Vilà (30) on the sides or the signings of Leandro Cabrera (28) and Adrián Embarba (27) also respond to this policy.last_img read more
