El Levante, at the foot of the Himalayas

first_imgThe conversation starts from arbitration. Al Levante-Madrid has been awarded to Hernández Hernández, Canary, who started a thunderous caray of Butragueño after the last Classic, in which the white club considers that he missed two penalties ‘very clear’, augmentative at the height of the duel. And Levante remembers the meeting against Madrid last year in which a kick of Dokouré that shaved Casemiro’s twin ended in penalty indicated by Iglesias Villanueva, a set in which the party and the previous crusader of the Levantinist were broken. So referee and VAR occupy the first act of a clash that catches the Valencian team at a minimum and at the foot of the Himalayas to Madrid, which will chain Manchester City and Barça in four days.Mendy is on a suspension card and he is taken for granted before Barça. In fact, he was already the owner of the crucial duels of the course: the first leg, the two matches against Atlético, the Super Cup … So Marcelo may repeat. And from there on, Zidane has plenty of stickers. More after Hazard’s recovery, which has returned above the most optimistic forecasts. It needs more minutes than rest. Nor has Zidane found relief for Benzema and the rotation of midfielders seems to come the turn of Modric and Isco.Bale, to which the French always returns, spent two days without training for gastroenteritis and he has done it halfway later, which he provided a great reason to do without him before an opponent who has taken Barça ahead in the last two visits (in both of them the leader arrived at the Ciutat de Valencia and in both of them he directed the Levante Paco López). Madrid has been worse: only one victory, and in the Bernabéu, in the last fourteen clashes. Better in Valencia than outsideHe would have preferred another moment Levante, whose thirteenth place is the lowest since the season began and has lost five of its last six games. However, his forte is at home (20 of the 29 points he took in Valencia) and his two strikers, Roger and Mayoral, move in their best personal records.Roger, The Gunman, has had a race full of curves. Canterano del Valencia, went through two assignments before devoting himself and has suffered two breaks from the previous crusader, the second after scoring 22 goals and being the great driver of the return of Levante to First. This year, with ten (and three doublets), He is the top national scorer in LaLiga, along with Gerard Moreno and Ángel. Like this, he walked among the candidates to sign for Barça, a pulse that Braithwaite finally won. The club was walled in its clause (30 million) as the only exit door. He is already the second highest historical scorer of the club in Primera.Mayoral, raised in the quarry of Madrid, adds five goals and offers the best sensations since he signed for Levante. Y Morales, the club’s flag, has played every game, but has been a substitute in three of the last four in the League. He has only scored one goal in the whole season. The crucial player is Campaign, with suitors out, who has participated in 57% of the team’s goals.The statistics place Levante well. It appears in the middle of the table in all, offensive and defensive, except in one: it is the First team that commits the least fouls. In the winter market it has been limited to changing cards (Bruno for Cabaco and Koke Vegas for Oier) and misses important players for injury: Pier, Hernani, Rochina and Radoja. The pandemic that has been primed with the midfielders can match Morales, Roger and Mayoral, an artillery regiment, in the eleven. It would hit with the natural daring of Paco López, sometimes criticized, and would go in favor of the show.last_img read more
