The ticket to the fifth Olympic Games in its history will have to wait. At least 24 hours. After losing against China (62-64), whom he had defeated in the last six precedents, the Spanish team should win this Sunday (14.30 h., Teledeporte) to Great Britain in Belgrade.

The pre-olympic hiding a trap for the champion of Europe, that we must now resolve. After the wide and placid victory of the first day to South Korea (46-83), the players of Lucas Mondelo suffered against the giants in chinese, a dueling strangely erratic that even earned them the heroic. The victory post of the Korean women on the british (79-82) means that Spain will play its presence in Tokyo with a letter. Even though losing against Great Britain -in the case of triple tie, if China beats Korea-could not happen the tragedy.

Before China was a party of those that nothing comes out. Completely superior on the bounce (55-35), with the domain in the painting of the towers, the asian dominated 35 minutes without problems, since in the second quarter to take a blow on the table. It was not so much Have Their (205 centimeters) as Yueru Li (two meters), that I think problems to the Spanish. He finished with 13 points and 15 rebounds, and a feeling of tremendous power.

After the break, Spain put all the meat on the grill. But at times it was a want and not power. In the absence of eight minutes still fell by 15 points (40-55). But there’s always an ace in the sleeve in the form of self-love. In an end of pure race, led by Marta Xargay and Alba Torrens, the selection got fully into the battle.

A great comeback thwarted in the last two games. Six consecutive points from Alba, untrammeled in his return to the fields, gave back to the marker (62-61) in the absence of a minute. China responded, and, on the last play, up to three options were the champions of Europe have forced the extension of epic form. Finally the three releases would not enter.

“We have not played our best game. There have been many things that we have not done well“, he said Torrens, who finished with 17 points.

Not even fulfilled the following premise to be in the Game. Because in the match later, South Korea defeated Great Britain.

The goalkeeper Spanish at Leeds United, Kiko Casilla, has been charged with eight games and a fine of 60,000 pounds sterling -nearly € 70,000 – for making racist remarks against the player of the Charlton Athletic Jonathan Leko, according to confirmed this Friday, the Federation of English (FA).

The English club agreed to the sanction to the player, although he recalled that Box never acknowledged having uttered such insults. “We do not tolerate any form of discrimination within our club, we are leaders in the fight against discrimination. However, it is important to recognize that Kiko has always denied having made racist comments, “he says.

“The panel of FA has based its decision on the balance of probability rather than proving that Kiko is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, which we have always believed that it is the burden of proof is most appropriate,” he concludes.

“The 5 most difficult months”

After learning of the decision, Box showed their sadness over the verdict. “I feel sad and devastated for having been convicted on charges of making allegedly a racist comment during the game last September in front of the Charlton”, indicated through the social networks, where it stressed that racism “should not be tolerated” in the sport or in society.

In addition, he said, to understand the process carried out by the FA and being “completely in favor of any persecution to eliminate this scourge of racism”. “However, I want to say that these five months have been the most difficult of my professional career, and I don’t feel at all that the guilty verdict is a reflection of what really happened, “he said.

“I am sure that my family, friends, peers, and technical staff with whom I worked all these years in my professional career know that he NEVER used words with meaning and connotations racist, and that my behavior of respect toward the rival since I started my career has always been honest and with the utmost fair play“, underlined, and ended by thanking his “support” for Leeds and the fans, which makes it feel “stronger in difficult times”.

In the middle of a crisis scorer and with the season in the game, Zinedine Zidane continues to not look at the forwards you have on your list of alternates. Luka Jovic is taking opportunities to be sporadic and Mariano Diaz does not even enter in the calls. The squad came close to leaving in the winter market at Seville, but his high salary (five million euros) slowed down the operation. More surprising was the call that the environment of the ram received weeks later.

The Barcelona, in your desperate race to hire a ‘nine’ after the injury of Luis Suarez, he probed the possibility of being with Marian. A possibility that Real Madrid did not consider, without any interest to the white club in stepping up to a his maximum rival. When it was confirmed that the low long-term Dembélé, the barca ended up buying the scorer of the Leganés, the Danish Braithwaite, after discarding Angel, deputy of the Getafe, or to Lucas Pérez, the Alavs.

Zidane encouraged to Mariano, both in the summer and the past winter market, searching for another target. Already two years earlier, in 2017, we recommended leaving Olympique Lyon to take minutes. Made the case to the council, taking advantage of his year in the French league.

However, in his return to Madrid is not having a fortune. Injuries ruined last season and the current one, counts for nothing in the plans of Zidane (he has only played in the two matches of the Super cup of Spain). Their high salary, in addition, prevented cuajara his departure in January. The Seville, for example, preferred to opt finally for In-Nesyri, after considering the option of real madrid.

Real Madrid – Barcelona

Much from the environment of the club would point to Antoine Griezmann as an alternative to Luis Suarez at the tip of attack, it jumps to the view that the two players are wildly different. Just take a look at the cold statistics. It is true that both accumulate 142 goals in LaLiga. However, the frenchman has achieved so far in 345 encounters with the shirts of the Real Sociedad, Atletico and Barcelona, while the uruguayan has scored all as barca and him have been needed 165 games fewer. Griezmann is not a killer.

In spite of everything, the Bernabeu has not been given anything bad to the French in the last few years. Last season, the last as red and white, was unmarked, but in 2015-16, the 2016-17 and 2017-18 achieved goals which earned for starting points of the fief of real madrid. The first of them served to his team to take the win by the minimum, while the other two allowed him to to the mattress set to seal two separate draws. His performances as atletico in Chamartín were decisive for Atletico outside the clear dominator of the derbies league, while Griezmann wore his t-shirt.

The injury of Luis Suarez in the right knee, which caused him to go under the knife and that you will have low at least until the end of April, has placed the French as the first choice at the tip of attack of the club. Leo Messi you prefer to move with total freedom and Martin Braithwaite, signed as a replacement of an Ousmane Dembélé who will miss the remainder of the season, it is not a nine-to-use. For this reason, and for the 120 million euros that it cost to sign him, all eyes will be focused on Antoine Griezmann to look for a reference in avant-garde.

“It is difficult for Messi to see me”

A position in which he ends up feeling comfortable. Is used to launch the clear and find the back of the defence, but his companions at the club have not quite fully understand yet the way you play. “What about Messi? It is difficult, he is on the right, and I more to the left. It is quite complicated to meet with him and that I see, but when we play in the middle, we try to combine and I try to find passes in depth, since that is my job at the club,” said the frenchman at Radio Monte carlo by the end of the duel against Napoli, where he scored the only goal barca.

And also, in addition, that he is used to the Barca. “I knew that, by coming here, I was going to take me a while to adapt to the team. It is a different job, but it is important for me to help peers,” he added. In Italy, the French returned to achieve as important. Something you’ve done also, and peers, in the heat of the Cup before the Ibiza. The fact that you have marked in the Champions league can become the stimulus you need to improve your stats in LaLiga. Until the moment, has scored eight goals in 24 games and has undergone two periods of major drought. The past Saturday, against Eibar, Messi sought him out shamelessly for you to add one more notch to his revolver after beating Getafe in the previous day. Without success. Now, in a Bernabeu that good at it, you can take another step forward in their process of adaptation.

Piqué, ready for the classic

Gerard Pique will be on the lawn to be measured at Real Madrid in the classic. Despite the fact that their gestures of pain in the final stretch of the game before the Naples led to think that the station could suffer a high ankle sprain, was trained with total normality in the preparatory session on Friday and, unless last-minute surprises, your title seems more than assured.

The central barca, of course, was not at all willing to miss the duel with the eternal rival. A meeting that is always especially motivated. Pique, in fact, not even underwent medical tests after playing against Napoli, but, simply, did recovery work for two days before returning to the group.

Jordi Alba, for its part, did part of the work with the rest of his teammates, but his return to the team should still take a few days. The side suffered a tear in the hamstring of the right leg on the 15th of February, in the course of the match against Getafe, and it was speculated then that would be a three-week low. The classic comes too soon.
