Oviedo gives way to Diegui and points to Luismi and Lunin

first_imgWith this movement, Oviedo releases part of its file, an operation that facilitates the arrival of signings, although it is still not enough to cover the incorporation chapter. The one that is closest to embarking on the blue project is Luismi, with whom the blue club already has an agreement and Valladolid has given the Ok. All that remains is for La Liga to approve an operation whereby the pivot would reach loans to Javi Rozada as of June 30.It is not the only open front with Valladolid. Lunin, goalkeeper assigned by Madrid in the club pucelano is another priority option. Sergio’s team was reluctant to leave him, but the insistence of Madrid, a club that has his rights and wants to see him play to prove his level, and the footballer himself, who could be out of Ukraine’s list for the European Championship this summer due to inactivity, seem decisive factors to speed up the operation.Like Luismi, Lunin would arrive in Oviedo as a loan, to defend the blue goal until June 30. Alfonso Herrero, substitute goal, can be the great harmed by having to find a place far from the capital as a whole. Oviedo made official the exit of Diegui Johannesson two days after the parties agreed to leave, and once the side passed the medical examination with his new club, and with that procedure the transfer market for the Blues has accelerated. The departure of footballers is a necessary procedure to release wage mass. Now, the club tries to expedite more terminations while tracking its options in the market. Luismi and Lunin, both of Valladolid, are the two operations for which the Blues bid at the moment.Johannesson will play the remainder of the season at Cartagena, which assumes an important part of the player’s record. Johannesson, with a contract in force until June 2021, is sure to return when the current campaign for blue discipline ends. In addition, in principle it will have the leading role demanded, since Cartagena is without a right back from the exit of the Uruguayan Fucile. Its inclusion in the initial eleven could be immediate in the face of problems in its position.last_img read more

The curse of Atlético

first_imgBefore these two, there were others three batches against Madrid in the Cup. In 1980 it was in the semifinals. The return in the Bernabéu finished 1-1 and in the penalties they failed blond, who sent his to the post, and Guzman, which ran into the crossbar. For more misfortune, Dirceu He had missed another in extra time. Garcia Remón stopped him, the same hero a year earlier, because in 1979 they went back to the Madrid and Atleti penalties in a controversial second leg (3rd round) that ended 2-2 with two goals annulled and doubtful to the rojiblancos. The Madrid goal repelled the releases of Rubén Cano and Leivinha. Atlético and Real Madrid took the dispute over the Spanish Super Cup to the limit and the penalty shootout dropped the title for the white side. Those of Simeone were denied (two failures and zero stops) and they extended a historical curse, especially against the neighboring rival. Memory goes fast to the 2016 Champions League final, but there were others before. The five times he has arrived with Madrid on penalties have ended in defeat. If in derbis the balance of batches wins is 0 of 5, in general it remains that He has won 5 of 14. In the Simeone era there are two and two, because the PSV (2016) and the Leverkusen (2015) were beaten in Calderón. In Milan, in May 2016, the penalty of Juanfran drove the team away from glory, in addition to the Griezmann to the crossbar in the second part; this Sunday in Jeddah only Trippier He succeeded with his release. The penalties do not smile at Atlético. In 1975, as in Jeddah, the batch decided the title. The Cup final was played at Calderón and, after 0-0 (and a Becerra’s phantom goal Y other voided Benegas, both from Atleti), the penalties arrived. Michelangelo the first one stopped Irureta and then Salcedo sent another one out. Madrid was champion.Leaving aside the white team, the last round that Atlético lost was before Villarreal in 2004. It was in the end of Intertoto, a sign that they were other times. García Calvo, Nano and Arizmendi their pitches failed and, on top of that, Jorge had missed another in the second half. In 2006, for example, the Atleti imposed on the Levant, After losing in the Calderón (0-1), match it in Valencia (Agüero in the 90 ‘) and win the batch.Before that, he only won on penalties for Elche (sixteenth of the 1987-88 Cup) and Athletic (eighth of the 1977-78 Cup). On the contrary, he missed another three. Against Fiorentina, in UEFA 1989-90 (they missed Futre, Marina and Manolo); against Real Sociedad, in the final of the Copa del Rey 1986-87 in Zaragoza (Da Silva and Quique failed before Arconada) and against Derby County in the second round UEFA 1974-75: Luis scored a penalty (and another goal) for 2-2 that led the match to the goal, where Capon and Eusebio they didn’t succeed.

Harris has been impressive for the Pistons this season, shooting a career-best 41 percent from 3-point range.Although neither team announced the deal Monday, there was plenty of reaction on social media. Harris had a message on his accounts thanking Detroit for its support. Griffin’s Twitter account had its own message with no words — just an image of actor Will Smith with a surprised expression on his face.For the Clippers, moving Griffin would continue a makeover of a franchise that has never made it past the second round of the playoffs.The Clippers traded All-Star point guard Chris Paul to Houston last summer. He had been credited with bringing respectability to the team that was once the laughingstock of the league. Without Paul, Los Angeles won its first four games to open the season, and then lost nine of its next 11.
