How Cadiz are preparing for the visit of Real Madrid

first_img Rik Sharma The match will see the debut (and possibly only appearance) of two LED screens. They have been taken from the streets where they had been showing adverts or government messages.  02/12/2015 Upd. at 11:21 There will be extra security measures at the stadium, in the wake of the Paris attacks. Fans are being told to turn up early, bring their identity cards and not to bring bags. And did you know? Madrid goalkeeper Kiko Casilla, likely to start in this clash, had a bad experience here while on loan from Espanyol for two seasons. 2008-09 was fun, as they were promoted to the Segunda division, but 09-10 saw the team relegated back to Segunda B, with Casilla blamed for many of the team’s problems. He said that he and his wife, pregnant at the time, were left feeling very low. Although the cheap and cheerful yellow home kit doesn’t have a sponsor usually, the city’s tourism board has bought the right to do so for this game. They will wear “Discover Cadiz” and “www.cadizturismo.com” in this first leg. The rights for the second leg have not yet been sold. The council know people will watch this game in five continents and are hoping to draw tourists to the area. CET ——————————————- Cadiz are not doing too badly at the moment, third in Group IV of Segunda B, four points behind leaders Real Murcia. But they are a long way from the side that managed, in 1977-78, to beat Madrid 1-0 at the old Carranza stadium. Funnily enough, in their best ever Copa del Rey run – 1989-90, they were knocked out by Los Blancos in the semi-finals. ——————————————– It has been over 10 years since Real Madrid played a game in Cadiz’s Estadio Ramón de Carranza (22,000 capacity). Robinho made his debut and shone as Los Blancos ran out 2-1 winners in the south-west of Spain. But now they are back for the first leg of their Copa del Rey clash on Wednesday night. Here is how the hosts are preparing. Cadiz players will arrive at the stadium of their own accord, two hours before the game, where coach Claudio Barragan will read out the team – cutting five unlucky players from the list.last_img read more

Claudio Ranieri cruelly sacked by Leicester City

first_img Upd. at 01:44 Leicester released a statement reading: “The board reluctantly feels that a change of leadership, while admittedly painful, is necessary in the club’s greatest interest. The Italian coach was in a sticky spot in the top flight, one place and one point above the relegation zone with 13 matches of the season to go. He scored them a good result away at Sevilla in the Champions League on Wednesday night, with a 2-1 defeat in Andalusia giving them the chance to progress with a win at the King Power Stadium, but it wasn’t enough to save his job after a terrible run of form in the Premier League. Leicester City sacked Claudio Ranieri on Thursday night just nine months after he led them to the Premier League title.

Honours even as Valencia and Atletico draw 1-1 at Mestalla

first_img 20/08/2018 Kondogbia sprayed the play out to the left hand side to the awaiting Wass. He floats in a fantastic first-time cross to the penalty area where Rodrigo Moreno, the man of the moment, chests the ball down and smashes it beyond Oblak. You would be right to ask questions about Godin, who normally so reliable, as he simply misjudged the flight of the ball. Upd. at 22:43 The non-stop Diego Simeone was warned about rushing out of his technical area to return a ball for a throw-in. He immediately apologised as the referee came over to remind him he couldn’t do that. Valencia pegged Atletico back but didn’t really threaten Jan Oblak’s goal. Diego Costa then ran into the Valencia penalty area and only stopped doubling Atletico’s lead thanks to a fine stop from Neto. This was a lot more back and forth than many onlookers expected. Then it was their turn as Diego Costa worked himself a yard of space on the edge of the box but his shot was rather tame and didn’t truly test Neto. The Brazilian-born Spaniard was frustrated with his effort in a game that was always going to be decided by fine margins. Atletico slowly gained control and Valencia’s threat became non-existent. At the end of the first half Garay accidentally brought down Diego Costa 30 yards from goal. A harsher referee might have brandished a red card as he looked like the last man. Cue the start of the second half where Garay pulled down Costa on the edge of the box but to his – and Valencia’s – relief the referee waved play on. It was a clear foul though and an unnecessary risk for the experienced defender to take. Atletico Madrid and Valencia looked evenly matched on paper and that ended up being the case as neither side could take advantage of their chances to walk away with anything more than a point. The next big chance fell to Diego Costa. Juanfran produced a ball that the greatest playmakers in European football would’ve been proud of to find Correa in behind Valencia’s defence. He squares it across goal and Costa decides not to launch himself at the ball. It didn’t appear too far ahead of him; maybe the Spaniard just didn’t feel comfortable swinging his left foot at it. Football can be quite cliché at times. One of the most popular is that if you fail to take your chances, you’ll be punished. So naturally, Valencia equalised soon after.center_img CEST After a water break, the game really began to really open up. First it was Valencia who ruined a fantastic chance to strike on the counterattack. Santi Mina tried to get away but was disposed but it fell to Carlos Soler. He carried the ball forward but instead of putting Mina through straight away, he held onto it, and then overplayed the pass to the striker. The first real chance fell to Valencia as Rodrigo’s long range shot sails wide of Oblak’s post. Initially it looked as if Oblak had gotten a touch to it but the replay showed he didn’t. It was an early warning for the visitors. Valencia’s now three-man attack was leaving gaps in their own defence but they weren’t punished. In fact, the next big chance came when Batshuayi played in Wass, one-on-one, but he couldn’t beat Oblak. Not many can, to be fair. You sensed that was Valencia’s last chance to win the game. But it wasn’t. Gameiro let fly from the edge of the box but he doesn’t catch it well enough to trouble the giant Serbian keeper. And that was the last chance of the game – for both sides. A draw was ultimately a fair result. Koke and Carlos Soler both tried their luck from way out and the results were largely the same: more danger of hitting the linesman than the back of the net. Mestalla was rocking and Valencia were full of confidence. Gabriel Paulista powered a header onto the post as Atletico began to feel the heat. Atletico replaced Lemar and Griezmann with Gelson and Vitolo while Valencia gave debuts to new boys Gameiro and Batshuayi with both put up alongside Rodrigo. Neither side was interested in taking just a point from this match. One of the two changes to the Atletico line up, compared with the one that started the UEFA Super Cup, was Angel Correa and he rewarded the faith shown in him just before the half-hour mark. Antoine Griezmann had the time outside the area to play a beautiful reverse pass into Correa who coolly slotted it past Neto. Andrew Gaffneylast_img read more

Representing some big names across the globe like Paul Pogba , Verrati , Lukaku and others, Raiola has that monopoly in the scene.Advertisement This attitude of the football agent has delayed the Matthjis De Ligt to Barcelona transfer. FIFA has also issued a ban on Raiola for two months.
