Total tiebreaker

first_imgIt will not be final, because after the Classic there will still be 12 days, but yes it’s a match that is worth half a league. There was no similar situation since Madrid-Barça that was played on day 33 of the Liga del double white, at 16-17. Madrid reached the first game of the table with 75 points and Barça second with 72. The team was bound, then of Luis Enrique, to win so as not to lose the league. And he did (2-3), although it served little because Madrid ended up winning it, like the Champions League. Three years later, a Classic can decide the League again. Madrid, in a delicate momentThere is no thing to launch rockets at either side of the airlift, but a priori it seems that it is Madrid that has lost the predominant position it had Only a few dates ago. He was three points ahead of Barcelona, ​​who had all the pressure, before drawing (2-2) with Celta and lose (1-0) with Levante. To top, there is no network for the white team, that with the knockouts against the City so difficult he runs the risk of staying, in case of losing and as happened last season, without options in the League, Champions and Cup in the month of March. The pressure is maximum …Zidane’s team has become vulnerable in the BarnabasU overnight. There he has only won one match in this Champions League and he chains three games without winning (in which he has received seven goals). And losing defensive strength is precisely what has made him plummet. He has conceded 10 goals in his last five official matches, the same amount as in the 22 games prior to that streak. Given the obvious lack of goal this season, Madrid had survived based on zero doors (up to 16) … Zidane discusses an action with Benzema in the defeat against City in the Champions League.JUAN MEDINA Beyond that circumstance is a Classic that decants the balance. It does it in two ways. On the one hand, Madrid and Barcelona are tied for 72 wins in the history of the championship (to that we must add 35 draws). Whoever wins will undo the tables. There are Madrid and Barça so even in the championship that the whites have scored 286 goalss in the Classics and blaugrana 288. Tables that also appear in the locker of both coaches. Zidane and Setién have faced each other six times: two wins for each, two draws. It happens, however, that Setien’s two victories were especially painful. Both with Betis and both at the Bernabéu, a fief in which the Cantabrian coach has not yet lost: in March 2017 he tied with Las Palmas (3-3), in September of that same year he won with Betis (0-1) and in May 2019 he won again with the Verdiblancos (0-2). A Barça, a mystery armed with MessiSo that respect to Barcelona, it’s still a mystery, but with Messi, which is not little. The technician relay in January when Valverde was fired to hire Setién after Xavi and Koeman said no and Pochettino was ruled out by the social opposition follows an irregular process. Little has changed in a club that continues to have its weakness in games in the opposite field. The Blaugrana have not added 50 percent of the points they have played away from home. Of the 12 league games played as a visitor, he has won five, has drawn three and has lost four with a balance of 18 goals in favor and 17 against.With Setién the dynamics has not changed. He won by the hair in his visits to Ibiza and Villamarín, he was lucky not to be thrashed Mestalla, was eliminated from the Cup by Athletic in San Mamés and in his visit to San Paolo four days ago the feelings were depressing despite the tie.Barcelonistas cling to Messi’s inspiration and their situation in the table, unthinkable only a month ago when they fell in Valencia.last_img
