Piovaccari premiered as a goal scorer in the Copa

first_imgUlloa’s injury opened the doors of ownership to Piovaccari which, between League and Cup, adds up to 799 minutes. Of the twelve league matches in which he has participated, the striker has started in five (Mirandés, Elche, Albacete, Las Palmas and Girona) and has made full in the KO Tournament. The Italian points to eleven against Lugo, a match he will face full of morals and with the firm intention of extending his idyll with the goal. It should be remembered that last season he scored a total of thirteen goals with Cordoba. Piovaccari signed for Rayo last summer, since he had a profile of Paco Jémez’s taste. Precisely the coach was one of those who was most satisfied with the work of the Italian in Lasesarre: “The strikers live and feed on the goal, they are happier when they score. He is always there and shows his face when we need him. It will do you good to calm down and gain confidence. He has made a very complete match in a very difficult field. I am very happy for him, he deserved this match and this goal to claim“. Federico Piovaccari already knows what it is to mark with the Strip. The 35-year-old striker premiered as a striker scorer in the Copa del Rey match against Barakaldo. The Italian was the author of 0-2 definitive, after De la Fuente Ramos previously canceled two goals. “For a forward marking is everything. This last month I am having more opportunities to play and occasions, but many times it is luck that determines where the ball goes“, confessed the Italian, who celebrated with rage that first target wearing the Vallecana shirt.last_img read more

The Cup reaches sixteenths: differences with the previous format

first_imgThe First have given the size. Some of them have suffered, such as I raised, the Majorca, the Villarreal or the Pomegranate, but only two have said goodbye to the Cup. The Alavés fell loudly before the Real Jaén last December and the Badalona Getafe was imposed taking advantage of the early expulsion of David Timor. The rest, in one way or another, have managed to solve the ballot and reach the round that once would have been their first test in the competition.Thus, the difference with respect to previous years is minimal. Last season the 20 teams of First, 6 of Second and 6 of Second Division B played on the round of 16. This year, the same representatives of LaLiga SmartBank will play a place in the round of 16, but there will be two less than LaLiga Santander, fruit of the disappointment of Alavés and Getafe. Their places are occupied by two clubs of the bronze category.In short, despite the fact that the new format gives more facilities to the little ones, the fact that have to overcome two qualifiers makes the sixteenths are not so different from those of the previous model. Most, yes, agree; while others promote the introduction of a pure draw. Thus, a fully open Cup would be generated, although images such as Unionists celebrating the arrival of a historic event would be seen less frequently … The new Copa del Rey was born as an attractive format, pleasant for the most modest and that promised emotion and emphasized the message that nothing can be taken for granted in football. Said and done, the first two rounds have been loaded with matched matches, of surprises, of great photographs in small fields. The KO tournament has changed and will not return to the old model. However, when the sixteenths arrived, What differences are seen with years ago?Now, modest clubs receive more television revenue, since there are two more rounds issued with rights in between. Beyond the economic level, in the sports field, the results have brought a very similar round to what was previously the Copa del Rey. Taking as a reference last season, the First Division entered the round of 16. That is, until that moment, those of the Super Cup were exempt as this campaign has been.Nevertheless, Luis Rubiales propelled a change that forced 16 LaLiga Santander teams to play two more qualifiers and that crossed those of LaLiga SmartBank in front of more modest people with little chance of seeing each other’s faces. An idea that balanced the forces, especially to erase the double game, which made frequent surprises impossible. In this way, the failure of Second Division clubs, which have fallen en masse until only six representatives remain.last_img read more

The sports area seeks a far right (Ibai Gómez and Cristian Tello are the best placed) and a central (from Turkey they place Marcao near the Galatasaray), and also does not rule out if it arrives with time and salary margin, as AS has learned a midfielder. The ‘crux’ of the issue is found in the number of numbers. With the arrival of Raúl de Tomás, they are 24 those who already own, so only one free remains today. Y can be completed in a matter of weeks for the following reason: in the contract of Victor Gomez, canterano, figure that will feature professional record when playing 15 matches officers; He has five left. A viable solution, to avoid collapse, is to emulate the side what Víctor Campuzano and Pol Lozano already accepted in the preseason, that is, a salary according to your contract but keeping the subsidiary’s number.Precisely Lush, and there you can see how overbooking can affect not only the signings but also the day-to-day training with Abelardo Fernández, He changed last week dynamic of the first team for Espanyol B, with whom he played on Sunday in Andorra. 3Pedrosa What also seems clear is that it will be inevitable to give some way out. Gonzalo Ávila ‘Pipa’, by assignment, or Facundo Ferreyra they are emerging as candidates in a squad in which this season already they have had official minutes up to 33 players different.last_img read more

The City urgently gathers the staff to give explanations

first_imgThe players were summoned for noon today. It has been, as explained in its website the English newspaper, an informational meeting with the players to expose the future of the team and, above all, what can directly affect the players. The penalty requires a real reorganization of the club’s accounts, whereby, for example, the income budget and, therefore, the salary item could be reduced. That directly influences the squad since next season. The City has announced that it will appeal the ruling, but one way or another it will have to adjust its accounts to the requirements of UEFA’s financial control. Manchester City has set up a crisis cabinet to take the next steps before the penalty of two years of exclusion from European competitions by UEFA, mainly due to violations of the regulation of financial control. As much as the club expected punishment, it has generated a situation of gigantic uncertainty about the future of the team. In this way, as the Telegraph newspaper explains today, Ferran Soriano, executive director of the entity, shortly after knowing the ruling publicly, organized an emergency meeting with the players through the WhatsApp group of the team.last_img read more
