it’s interesting That both games ended with the same score (2:2). But if the Madrid club after the misfires managed to score a move, to Barcelona the loss of points in Vigo can cost the championship. If to 32-th round of Barcelona was against real Madrid on an equal footing (on 68 points), but now it risks being left behind the competition. This “cream” needed to win at RCD Espanyol.
However, back to Smolov. Spain already joking that with the middle him to play bored, and because he scored the giants only. In fact it is certainly not the case. The Russians almost every game there are chances. To recall the recent meeting with the “alavesa”, in which “Barcelona” has achieved the biggest win in Example for 65 years, defeating the opponents 6:0. Fedor had two excellent chances but he was unlucky.
Barcelona Smolov was very active in attack and took his chance. By the way, he became the eighth Russian, who scored the “blue garnet” and “real”. Earlier this could Take Alexander, Dmitri Radchenko, Valery Karpin, Oleg Salenko, Dmitry Popov, Igor Korneev and Denis Cheryshev.
In the transition Smolov “Celta” were sharply increased. Hardly this circumstance is connected only with the arrival of the Russians, but nevertheless: in 11 games with the team from Vigo have suffered only two defeats, won in four matches and improved their positions in the standings. Six rounds before the end of the season “Celta” is in 16th place ahead of Mallorca, walking in the relegation zone, eight points – 34 vs. 26.
Meanwhile, Liverpool for the first time in 30 years became the champion of England. The “Reds” ahead of schedule won the title thanks to the victory of Chelsea over Manchester city (2:1). For seven rounds before the end of the season, the team Jurgen Klopp ahead of city on 23 points.
of Course, a great contribution to the past successes of Liverpool belongs to Klopp. By the way, he became the first German coach who won the English championship.
– an Incredible feeling! It is much more than I ever imagined. Unlike many fans of Liverpool I didn’t have 30 years to wait for the League title. I’m only here for four years, but you know what we did. Especially given the three-month break. Nobody knew, will resume the season or not. Know: people are difficult. However, we will celebrate “gold” with our fans as soon as it becomes possible, ‘ said Klopp.
it is noteworthy That in the next round and Liverpool will meet on departure with Manchester city. Head coach of “citizens” Josep Guardiola was one of the first congratulated the “red” with “gold” and noted that Mohamed Salah and the company will be organized to champion the hallway before the match.
– Such a large backlog is a reality. Liverpool have been incredible in its stability throughout the season. Two years ago we were ahead of them for 25 points, and now they did the same thing. I want to congratulate Klopp and his team, they deserved this trophy – said Guardiola.
At the weekend took place the match of the 24th round of the Russian championship. Sensations in it, I must admit, it was not: the leaders of “Zenit” and “locomotive” has achieved the expected victories over the “Wings of the Soviets” (2:1) and “Rubin” (2:0), respectively, and the capital Derby between Dynamo and CSKA ended in a draw.
For CSKA this match became the first after the team’s head coach Viktor Goncharenko wrote a letter of resignation. All week fans of “red-blue” wondering what decision the club management. It was rumored that Goncharenko flew to Belarus and returned to Moscow just in time for the Derby. Specialist was present at the game, but only as a spectator. And replaced Sergei Ovchinnikov.
the meeting Itself was not very bright, but very combative. A little closer to the victory was CSKA Moscow, but Dynamo survived. A day after the match it became known that Goncharenko returned to work with the team. It happened in front of a landmark event – another capital Derby tomorrow against Spartak Moscow.
Themselves the “red-white” on the weekend dropped points after failing to win at home “Ufa” (0:0). Ending the meeting turned fiery in the 87th minute, Alexander Sobolev, it seemed, brought three points for the hosts due to his regular goal, but referee Vladislav Bezborodov canceled a goal after viewing VAR. Literally in the next attack from Sobolev was slaughter time, but Aleksandr Belenov saved “Ufa” and brought his club one point.
