Category: Not Without My League
Once again Sevilla FC rose from its ashes, just when thing were worst. Weeks ago Seville beat Barcelona and recovered part of the credit lost in the first matches. Last Sunday, after the painful defeat against Manchester City, Sevilla win Real Madrid by playing a fabulous match. Sevilla has been the only team able to win the two La Liga giants. What a gift seeing Konoplyanka attacking by the left side!!
Real Madrid situation is getting more complicated. Rafa Benitez´s approach doesn´t work without the squad commitment and effort. Without this, it is all steam. Ronaldo´s gestures in the pitch are very revealing about the current situation because of the lack of identity that are showing this version of the club. Ronaldo´s attitude and performance are very meaningful, but as we all know, business says that in the pitch play Ronaldo and ten more players. It is better not to speak about Benzema and waiting for news.
Sergio Ramos is worth a whole episode; he was able to gather in one ¨chilena¨ all his honesty, talent and love for football. If Real Madrid´s squad has the same attitude, I am pretty sure that Real Madrid would be on top of the League Chart.
The victory Real Betis achieved in the match against Malaga was as revitalising as the Sevilla’s. The play was not so beautiful, but we will forget it as time passes. The important things are the points you get so this is what reinforces Betis confident.
The situation in Málaga and Granada is quite different, the competition advances and they remain in the bottom of the classification. Now is time to control emotions and hit the target in the transfer market, because very complicated dates are coming before the Christmas Break. We will see how good are both teams handling the situation.
Finally, Del Bosque has to keep on adjusting the National Team so it gets Eurocup full of confidence. The coach must close Diego Costa´s debate. Vicente has all the clues in this matter, although players as Aduriz are knocking his door. Sooner rather than later the coach will have to decide.
Football like real life, always surprises us.
