Real trip up in the Situs Judi Online home straight
September 19, 2021
Villareal qualified for next season’s Europa League by beating Elche 1-0. The Yellow Submarine were La Liga runners-up in 2008 and Champions League semi-finalists two years earlier.
Down at the bottom, Granada beat already relegated Situs Judi Online Cordoba 2-0 in the Andalusian derby to give them a glimmer of hope of survival.
Deportivo La Coruna meanwhile, claimed what might prove to have been a valuable point away to Athletic Bilbao by Alberto Lopo’s 94th minute leveller.
It is possible that three Andalucian sides could go down if Almeria swap places with Deportivo.
As it stands, Spain’s regions are represented thus in La Primera:
ANDALUCIA – 5 – Almeria, Cordoba, Granada, Malaga, Sevilla
BASQUE COUNTRY – 3 – Athletic Bilbao, Eibar, Real Sociedad
CATALONIA – 2 – Barcelona, Espanyol
GALICIA – 2 – Celta Vigo, Deportivo La Coruna
MADRID – 4 – Atletico Madrid, Getafe, Rayo Vallecano, Real Madrid
VALENCIA – 4 – Elche, Levante, Valencia, Villareal
Aragon, Asturias, Cantabria, Castille La Mancha, Castille & Leon, Extremadura and Murcia have no representation in the top flight.
Real Betis from Andalucia and Girona from Catalonia look set to ascend to the first division next season. The other place is currently between Las Palmas (Mallorca), Real Valladolid (Castille & Leon), Real Zaragoza (Aragon) and Sporting Gijon (Asturias).
PICHICHI race (goals):
- Cristiano Ronaldo 42
- Lionel Messi 40
- Antoine Griezmann 22
- Carlos Bacca 20
*Football in Spain could sensationally come to a standstill this weekend however as the Spanish Football Federation (FFE) have weighed in against the government forcing a redistributive TV contract on La Liga clubs and called a halt to proceedings.
The Spanish League was meeting on Monday morning to discuss its course of action, with the players’ union also complaining the new collective bargaining agreement does not help second division clubs enough.
The directive demands a fairer share of TV money for clubs outside the big two, who up until now have taken the lion’s share.
The FFE’s intervention seems curious given the grotesque gap between Barcelona, Real Madrid and the others, but they obviously have sympathies for them.
Plus with the egregious Angel Maria “all the fish are sold” Villar in charge, any madness is possible.
We should know by Thursday if the strike will go ahead or not, but it is hard to see the league stopping for long with little time between now and end of the season commitments such as the Champions League and Copa del Rey conclusions.
*The big two were in Champions League action as well of course and their respective results only underlined Barça are having the better of this season.
Real kicked off on Tuesday in Turin, where they lost 2-1 to Juventus but scored a vital away goal.
Alvaro Morata grabbed a poacher’s goal in the eighth minute when he tapped in at the far post after Iker Casillas saved from a classic Carlos Tevez drive.
The Spanish international did not celebrate scoring against his old team, but gestured to the visiting fans who had been taunting him.
Juve’s marking went astray in the 27th minute however as an unchallenged Cristiano Ronaldo headed in a vital leveller. Juve were back in front ten minutes after the break when Tevez charged down the field on a breakaway only to be hacked down by Daniel Carvajal.
The former Man City and Man Utd man hit the penalty down the middle to dig the knife in, but Ronaldo’s goal means a 1-0 win at the Bernabeu will be enough. Yet Juve’s attacking intent and traditionally mean Italian defence means it is by no means guaranteed.
Karim Benzema missed out for Real, for whom the returning Gareth Bale once more did his invisible man impression.
Barcelona’s 3-0 win over Bayern Munich was a mirror of the scoreline two seasons ago when Jupp Heynckes men won at the Camp Nou.
That game, part of a 7-0 aggregate thrashing of Tito Vilanova’s side, appeared to signal the end of tiki-taka and Catalan Euro dominance.
