The ‘bad boys’ of LaLiga

Posted On May 14 2020 by

first_img7,472 fouls in 270 total games. That is the scale of LaLiga Santander before the pandemic forced to stop the competition in its tracks. The number may not speak for itself, but its explanation is striking: in the last fifteen years, only two campaigns have had a lower average of infractions per game. With 27.7 per game, LaLiga 2019-20 narrowly surpasses 2018-19 (27.1) and 2015-16 (27.3). Soccer has changed, more and more is allowed to play and each action of the game is measured in detail from the blackboard. Even so, there are those who use the regulations to make it their greatest virtue. The ‘bad boys’ of the tournament for some, but the footballers that anyone would like to have under their ranks.The king of them all is Jaime Mata. It is striking that it is a striker who has committed the most fouls in the entire championship, but it has an explanation. The Getafe striker has 67 offenses in 24 games played. He perfectly responds to Bordalás’ philosophy: the best way to win is to waste every drop of sweat from minute 1 to the last second of the discount. Mata, along with Jorge Molina, play the marked protocol without hesitation. They press up, they go strong on the air ball and use the maximum resources that the regulation provides to take centimeters of advantage to the rival. Obviously, this influences that the ‘7’ is one of the most punished by the collegiate. Your partner Mauro ArambarriIn fact, it occupies the podium of footballers with the most fouls committed: it is third, with 60.Casemiro sneaks in between, another of the diamonds that any technician would like to count on. The Real Madrid midfielder is not only a defensive portent, but his effort gives oxygen to Kroos, Luka Modric or Isco in the creation. The Brazilian, in addition, has a clean ball out, goes very well on his head and is a relatively habitual scorer. So much so that the white team has a certain dependence on its role and is combing the market in search of a substitute. Kanté or Camavinga are two of the names that sound louder. Along the way, there were plans to give rest to ’14’. Marcos Llorente tried, Kovacic also … Both ended up leaving the club. Toni Kroos has also served as an emergency solution, although the contrast is noticeable.FAYEZ NURELDINE & nbsp; (AFP) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Casemiro, escort from midfield of Real Madrid.FAYEZ NURELDINE (AFP) Raúl García, a classicIf they have come this far, it is not necessary to describe the qualities of Raúl García as a soccer player. By many he is branded as a dirty player and capable of deranging rivals. However, Athletic’s attacker has been indisputable for all his coaches for years And surely he would be one of the last to get off the ship in the event of a storm. That is one of its greatest virtues, each of its actions is oriented to the common good. Lack of tactics or forcefulness to stop an opponent capable of generating danger are two of the characteristics of his repertoire. After 27 days, he is the fourth player with the most fouls in the tournament, with 58. Mikel Merino and Marc rock They complete the ‘top 5’, with 55 per head. On the average Jaime Mata also wins, followed by Yangel Herrera, Casemiro, Enrich and Arambarri.AIOL & nbsp; (DAILY AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Raúl García, in a match with Athletic.AIOL (DAILY AS) Cards are another storyFour footballers already have 11 cards so far this season: Damián Suárez, Roberto Soldado, Jonathan Silva and Gerard Piqué. None of them comes close, far from it, to Jaime Mata’s 67 fouls. In fact, the one that has committed the most is the Getafe winger, with 41. The Barcelona central defender, for his part, has completed two warning cycles with only 25 fouls committed! This statistical record does not go further to say that certain players are forced to use toughness to mitigate a dangerous rival attack. In other words, Jaime Mata’s faults in jumps or pressure are not comparable to tripping to stop advances or grabs that the previously mentioned protagonists can undertake.The best example of this is that Guido Carrillo or Borja Iglesias have committed 26 fouls and have only seen one card, according to data from Opta. With one less infraction, Piqué adds ten more cards. Nolith (22), Muniain (17) or Benzema (15) have not even been cautioned by the referee, despite suffering his whistle on rare occasions. Opposite case of Dembélé, Kaptoum, Baba or Ben Arfa, who have only been fouled so far in the championship and have won the yellow card award.last_img read more

It is true that there are people who can see soccer as entertainment and can make people spend more time watching their team or watching soccer games, but right now we are the least important. We are not in favor of training and playing when many people are dying with many infections in the streets, but well, there is an important fact that is the economic issue.

Gordon’s hat-trick lifts MBU

Posted On Feb 10 2020 by

first_img The goals just keep on coming for Montego Bay United’s forward Owayne Gordon, who fired in a hat-trick in Wednesday night’s opening Group Three Caribbean Football Union Club Championship win over Scholars International of Cayman, played at the Montego Bay Sports Complex. Gordon scored in the 25th, 73rd and 80th minutes  with an own goal coming from Scholars midfielder Courtney Duval in the 42nd minute. It was Gordon’s first-ever hat-trick for MBU. MBU’s win sets up what will likely be an interesting match against the defending champions Central FC from Trinidad on Sunday. Central will bow into action this evening when they meet the wounded Scholars in an 8 p.m. kick-off at the complex. MBU were made to work hard in the first 15 minutes to break down the Scholars team before Paul “Tegat” Davis-coached team began to settle and eventually turned the game in their favour, with Gordon in particular looking sharp upfront. “I was enjoying myself out there; it’s always nice to score goals but I think I enjoyed these greatly because it is my first hat-trick for MBU,”  Gordon said.   “They played hard but we are MBU and the team did what the coach asked and we got the important win,” added Gordon. The opening goal came from the penalty spot. Gordon stepped up to fire to the left of Scholars goalie Jermaine Brown after a defender had handled the ball. From there on there was little the visitors could do to stop the now marauding MBU team, buoyed by the early goal. The local team’s third goal and Gordon’s second was MBU at their best; a series of neat passes ended up with Gordon being fouled close to the area. Gordon struck the ball sweetly to the left of Brown in Scholars goal for a 3-0 lead. His hat-trick was completed when he lifted the ball over the advancing goalkeeper and into the unprotected net to complete the rout. “I am just happy to win tonight. I hope we play better in our next match and score more goals too,” added Gordon. Western Bureaulast_img read more
