Relegation a real possibility as Espanyol thumped by Real Sociedad

first_img Constantin Galca’s side are now on a seven-match winless run in the league and have won just once in their last 11 matches, leaving them perilously close to the drop zone. Las Palmas, who are currently in the final relegation place, are just one point behind.  CET Next up is the only side who could lay claim to being worse than them in Spain’s top flight at the moment: Valencia. Gary Neville’s side welcome the Pericos to Mestalla on Saturday on a 12 game run without win. Both Galca and Neville are their respective clubs’ second managers of the season. Depending on what happens on Saturday, either Valencia or Espanyol could be looking for their third coach of the campaign – that’s if they both make it to the weekend.  The truth is they were never in the game against Real Sociedad, who moved up to 11th, seven points clear of the bottom three, with what could prove their most comfortable win of the season.  Sam Marsden The threat of relegation looms large for Espanyol after they were condemned to a 5-0 defeat at home to a Real Sociedad side who are hardly flying high in La Liga themselves.  08/02/2016 If Espanyol fail to find some momentum soon, a spot in the second division looks a real possibility. That would come as a hammer blow to the club’s new majority shareholder, Chen Yansheng, who has claimed he wants European football within three years.  Desperately missing Felipe Caicedo to hold the ball up when they pushed forward, the Barcelona-based side never looked like getting back into it. Galca hauled off Arla at half time and replaced him with Pau Lopez, but it didn’t stop the onslaught.  Just five minutes were on the clock when Jonathas converted his fourth goal of the season, lobbing on-loan Watford stopper Giedrius Arlauskis who was in no-man’s land. And the Lithuanian was still there three minutes later when Carlos Vela lifted his side’s second goal over his head, too. Upd. at 22:21 At least Pau was blameless as first Mikel Oyarzabal and later Diego Reyes helped La Real into a four-goal lead, before Jonathas added his second late on. As the white hankies came out, chants of “you’re not fit to wear the shirt” came from Cornella-El Prat’s naked stands. Quite.last_img read more

France 1-0 Belgium: Samuel Umtiti heads Les Bleus into another final

first_img But tonight it was Umtiti, the smooth operator at the back who is proving just as useful in the opposing box. 10/07/2018 MATCH FACTS MUNDIAL DE RUSIA 2018 FRANCIA, 1 Eden Hazard gave inexperienced right back Benjamin Pavard a torrid time down the left wing and was Belgium’s greatest source of danger even if his side didn’t quite create clear cut chances. Then it was Lillian Thuram, who went on to finish his career at Camp Nou. ÁRBITRO 1-0, Samuel Umtiti se anticipa a Fellaini para cabecear a gol un córner lanzado por Griezmann (51′). El blaugrana Umtiti mete a Francia de cabeza en la final GOL Upd. on 11/07/2018 at 22:30 CEST Down the other end, France had fewer opportunities but came equally close, closest of all when Pavard came tearing through down the right and shot just beyond the far post. Andrés Cunha (Uruguay). Mostró tarjeta amarilla a los franceses Kanté (87′) y Mbappé (90+3′); y a los belgas Hazard (63′), Alderweireld (71′) y Vertonghen (90+4′). Courtois (p.), Alderweideld, Kompany, Vertonghen; Moussa Dembélé (Mertens, 60′), Fellaini (Carrasco, 80′), Witsel, Chadli (Batshuayi, 90+1′); De Bruyne, Lukaku y Hazard. Primera semifinal del Mundial de Rusia 2018, disputada en el Estadio Krestovski de San Petersburgo ante 64.286 espectadores. BEL 1-0 It came from the head of Umtiti, who is proving as valuable to France as he is to Barca. FRA His goal allowed France to sit back, hold on to what they had and try and pick Belgium off on the break. Just as in their quarter-final tie against Uruguay, France needed the help of a set-piece to find a way through although this time it was Umtiti rather than his centre-back partner Raphael Varane who headed home a cross from Antoine Griezmann. The Barca defender beat the usually towering presence of Marouane Fellaini to reach Griezmann’s outswinging corner and score his first competitive goal for France to break the deadlock early in the second half. Their best effort came from Toby Alderweireld and was punched away by Hugo Lloris, who took turns with Thibaut Courtois in the other goal to make show-stopping saves. Kylian Mbappe and Olivier Giroud both could have killed off Roberto Martinez’s side but again they were grateful to Lloris for protecting their slender lead. IN SPORT.ES Belgium, who fell agonizingly short in their first semi-final since losing to Argentina in 1986, had been more impressive in the first period in a remarkably open game given what was at stake and how tight semi-finals usually are. France will play either Croatia or England in the World Cup final on Sunday. The game was beginning to resemble Italy’s classic 2-0 win over Germany in extra-time in the 2006 semi-finals, but, as has happened so often in this tournament which has seen more set piece strikes than any other World Cup, the opening did not come from open play. David Rubio And rather like in that tournament, they got through their semi-final thanks to a centre-back. Lloris (p.), Pavard, Varane, Umtiti, Lucas Hernández; Pogba, Kanté; Mbappé, Griezmann, Matuidi (Tolisso, 86′); y Giroud (N’Zonzi, 85′). France, who lost the Euro 2016 final, now have another chance for this supremely talented generation to emulate the achievements of the 1998 world champions, who were captained by their current coach Didier Deschamps. BÉLGICA, 0 INCIDENCIAS Barcelona’s Samuel Umtiti sent France into their third World Cup final in 20 years with a  glancing header that beat off a Belgium side who were in many ways superior to the French but lacked a killer instinct.last_img read more

FIFA World Cup 2018 : Russia vs Egypt Review (Video Highlights)

Powered by Firework Host nation Russia have booked their place in the knockout stages with an emphatic win over Egypt. Goals from Denis Cheryshev, Artem Dzyuba and an own goal from Ahmed Fathi ensured that Russians made it past the Pharaohs. Poised at 0-0 at the end of the first half, the Russians were 3-0 up by the 62nd minute. A customary Mo Salah goal in the 72nd minute gave the Egyptians some sort of hope but it was a mountain too big to climb. The Russian Juggernaut continues as they have already scored 8 goals in two matches conceding just one. Salah scored Egypt’s first goal in the world cup since 1990. With dreams of what could have been, Egypt are invariably out of contention for qualifying for the knockout stages of the competition. However, they will look to bow out on a high note when they face Saudi Arabia for their last match of the group stages. A resilient Egypt Defense saw them nullify Russia’s attack as both seemed equally matched in the first 45 minutes. But the second half was a completely different story. It all started when Egypt captain tried to intercept a miscued shot only to end up in the back of his own net. 10 minutes later Russia scored again, this time through Denis Cheryshev – The man who scored two goals against a hapless Saudi Arabia team. Just when we thought Russia would slow the game down, they scored another goal through Artem Dzyuba who recieved a 40-yard pass inside the box to smash home Russia’s 3rd goal of the match and eventually put the game beyond Egypt. It was heartbreak for Salah who could not taste success with Liverpool and Egypt having carried these two teams through the entirety of last season and the World cup qualifiers respectively.Advertisement Watch the highlights of Russia vs Egypt here :Advertisement  Read also:Advertisement FIFA World Cup 2018: Poland vs Senegal ReviewFIFA World Cup 2018: Colombia vs Japan Review   Advertisementlast_img read more
