The League of Spain burns. With the goalless draw between Real Madrid and Osasuna, at this point there are four pointers! of the championship and two greats like him Atlético de Madrid and Barcelona are being left out of all European competitions next season. Impressive.
Of course, the 0-0 between Merengue and the Chimy Ávila team left Ancelotti’s team with 21 points, the same figure as Sevilla, Real Sociedad and Betis. And although the Madrid team has a better goal difference than the rest, in Spain the tiebreaker is given by the results of the clashes between equalized teams.
Of course there is still a long way to go, butthe start of this season is the most even in recent years, after more than a decade of absolute dominance by Barsa and Real, with Simeone’s Colchonero as a great opponent on more than one occasion.
It is also true that the reality of the four leaders is quite different. On the one hand, Real Madrid that lost two local points and that divides its season between the League and the Champions League, in addition of the Copa del Rey. For its part, Betis de Pezzella and Guido Rodríguez who thrashed Valencia 4 to 1 and reached the top, although with one more game than their competitors.
Real Sociedad, on the other hand, will play this Thursday against Celta de Coudet, and if they win or draw they will be the only leader of the tournament, although I would do it with a more played match than the rest.
The quartet of pointers is completed by Sevilla, who this Wednesday drew against Mallorca with a goal from Lamela and he deprived himself of the possibility of looking at everyone from above. But there is more …
Is that the Atlético de Madrid he has 18 points but one game less. And this thursday He will visit Levante with the illusion of winning and reaching 21 units, the same figure that today has the leading poker. This is how the League is paired, that the Colchonero, who today would be staying out of all European tournaments, will reach the top with just one win..
And if it comes to staying out of everything, the terrible moment that Barcelona is experiencing cannot be ignored. Without Messi, the culé team accumulates 15 points in 10 dates, is in ninth place and has just run out of a coach.
Thus, while several teams played 11 games, some only 10 and the odd just nine, the League is on fire. In an unprecedented season without the captain of the National Team, Spain lives one of the most even leagues in recent years. Who will end up taking it?
KOEMAN IS NO MORE THE DT OF BARCELONA
Koeman and the players leaving the field.
The cycle of the Dutch coach Ronald Koeman at the head of Barcelona is over. The defeat against Rayo Vallecano, the first in almost ten years, was too much for the leadership, which, based on what happened after the classic against Real Madrid, in the position that the team occupies in LaLiga -outside the classification positions a international cups – and in the possibility of being left out of the knockout stages of the Champions League that is being played, he has decided to fire him. Barça explodes. It explodes without Messi.
