These are the two largest teams of Spain and no doubt European – if not football.
But Barcelona and Real Madrid are not all alone in this season this season.
In fact, it is a season that could be described as a crisis for both leaders, Zinedine Zinedine Zidine and Ronald Koeman from Barcelona.
The two men are former players of their respective clubs and the winners of the European Cup / Cut / Champions League to start. Yet, the status of the CLUG – and in the Zidane case, winning three champion champion trophies as a manager – do not make them safe from the ax
closer to Koeman, the former internage playerIonal and Dutch manager who arrived at Camp Nou in summer.
“I can not explain it” Koeman said that the target marked by Alvaro Negredo who confined them to a fourth defeat of the emerging season of the Liga.
The goal came from a token taken by Jorcia Alba from Alba de Barcelona, who was then decided by the goalkeeper Marc TER Stegen before Jong Frenkie slipped as Negredo, As if in the matrix, was still in stock to roll the ball in a quarter net.
“You can not leave for a goal like that. We did some a few, and it hurts,” says Koeman
“It’s incredible that we would lose because of a goal like that, it’s a mistake that you do not voThey do not expect this team to be done. This shows that we are not concentrated, “Koeman continued.” The attitude was not good tonight. I am very disappointed. “
Extended disappointment to his players.” Individual errors cost us, “Midfielfielder Veteran Sergio Busquets said after the last loss and these were three individual mistakes that led to The negredo finish decisive.
It was a goal that was summarized at the Barcelona Liga, the Liga struggles in a game that has a lot the same.
again, they turned to Lionel Messi, as they often did in the past, but this year – after a summer, where he said he wanted to leave before the board decided to the air of the buandDirty of Barcelona in public – Argentina seems a little more human, by its own superhuman standards.
Koeman described the defeat in Cadiz as “gigantic not back in our chances of fighting to the league” and the story would suggest that it is right, despite the hopes of the institutional director of the club, Guillermo Amor.
“As we have abandoned, others will do it too,” he says, but will they fall enough for Barcelona to come back to the title race?
Already 12 points behind Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid who Topter The Table and they are six behind El Clasico Rivals Real Madrid.
This is the same real side that is in crisis of their own, which has entered the match of the last weekend against Sevilla ConsciousIt was a week that would probably decide from Zidane’s destiny.
It seemed aware that the real traveled to Andalusia, something could have been made more clear by the fact that his side was to face Seville of Julen Lopetegui. Lopetegui was the Zidane man replaced when he returned during the last time club, the former man of Spain having lasted only 138 days.
“Yeah, yes, for sure,” Zidane Saide in his pre-kindergarten press conference about the week upcoming, who started with Sevilla in front of a match of the essential champions league against Borussia Mönchengladbach, then the Madrid derby against the leaders of the league
“for sure, but it’s like always: there was MauGo moments, critics and today the same thing. Perhaps more than before, but no problem: I do not think about that. I feel players will do it on the ground. Tomorrow is an opportunity to show that we are a good team.
They did not necessarily do it, but they had a victory. The decisive goal has been given as a specific goal to Sevilla Guardian of Goal Bono, but it was enough for Zidane to go to mid-week and in Monchengladbach – a game that finished 1-0 with true always in the league of Champions.
Can it never know that it is never more than two bad results from another Bernabeu exit?
“I never felt that I was,” never said, “Zidane said in the game of Sevilla.” Notlike a player, a coach or a person. We are all here for a reason; I am here for a reason for a reason [to win] and will be until the last day. “
Zidane certainly does all the good noises before the victory of Sevilla
is a difficult moment, but what matters meets, after the same way and we will sort that, of course, “he said.
” I feel the support of the club and everything the world. I can not be happy when you lose, no one can, the players included. But we are now where we are lucky to be in this club. We must connect to do well. “
Their previous match had been a shock loss in Shakhtardontsk who did or break this week the matchFrom the Champions League this week. Real Madrid is not a team that plays the Thursday nights at the Europa League.
Zidane – again before Sevilla – was giving himself that he would not resign. “No, I did not think about it at all.”
But the decision will probably be out of his hands when she comes – and she will come, she always makes True Madrid, just as he does in Barcelona.
Defeat on weekends – where Barcelona hides Limly Levante – could spell curtains for Zidane and Koeman.
The situations of the two clubs mean that no matter what happens – and there are many things on the Camp Nou and Bernabeu this season – it’s on the ground where managers are judged.
is not just about the results, but the style wins. The wait is such that the context of the crises behind the scenes does not matter and even victories for both weekends might simply be execution stays.
Will the boss still be there when the sides meet in the next Clasico in April?
