The new Super Cup opens in Spain

The League gives way to Super Cup after a day 18 marked by the storm caused by the storm Filomena in many parts of the Spanish geography. The second edition of the new tournament, modified by the Spanish Football Federation (FEF) in 2019 to benefit the format of final to four between champions and runners-up in the League and Copa del Rey, premieres in national territory, after its controversial staging in Saudi Arabia last year.

The mobility limitations of the covid-19 have brought the renewed Super Cup to Andalusia, specifically to Cordoba, Malaga and Seville, venues for the semifinals and the grand final next Sunday. Barça and Real Sociedad, league runner-up and cup finalist waiting to settle the 2019-20 campaign title, will open hostilities tomorrow at the Nuevo Arcángel, in a duel that arrives at high hours for the Barça team, after managing to link three consecutive triumphs for the first time in the whole course in the wake of a Messi recovered for the cause at the best level.

The wards of Ronald Koeman They have managed to climb to third place in the league table, three points from Real Madrid and four from the Atlético leader, which yes, has played up to three fewer games, one of them today against Sevilla corresponding to the first day. However, the memories of the tournament in Can Barça bring the ghost of the dismissal of Ernesto Valverde, the last manager to achieve some stability at the club, after the defeat in the semifinal against Atlético. While, the Royal Sheriff He is going through the opposite dynamic after adding a victory in the last nine league games, although he has a great opportunity to once again taste the sweet taste of lifting an official trophy more than 33 years later.

Although the initial intention of the Madrid team was to return to the capital of Spain this Sunday, after playing their match against Osasuna in El Sadar on Saturday night, the situation finally forced them to change the route map to travel directly to yesterday. Malaga, where next Thursday they will face Athletic. They understand in the white set, where there is a deep discomfort with LaLiga and Javier Tebas for not suspending the match at El Sadar and forcing them to travel to Madrid, as Zidane himself stated in the post-match press conference, that it is more appropriate to train normally in Malaga and thus avoid the complicated conditions in those that are still found in the fields of Real Madrid City, in Valdebebas, where there are still certain difficulties of access and circulation.

The Lions’ they also suffered in first person the adversities of the severe weather, because they couldn’t land in Madrid after completing the plane trip from Bilbao, where they had to return at the last minute, thus suspending the clash against Atlético in the Metropolitano that was to be played on Saturday afternoon. After debuting against Barça in the League at San Mamés, Marcelino Garcia Toral He faces a new high-level commitment as an Athletic coach, who dreams of repeating the 2015 title, achieved precisely against the Catalans back and forth.

Messi, Pedri and Unai Simón, the three wise men of Barça

The children in Barcelona want to be Messi and Pedri, two footballers who like the magician’s suit. The Argentine is already king; the canary, still a prince. Barça’s happiness in 2021 depends largely on their inspiration and in San Mamés, a stadium of big nights, they gave away a show of dribbling, walls, heels and goals. Unai Simón also contributed in this section with two improper errors by the Spanish team’s goalkeeper.

Ronald Koeman has not found a definitive version for his Barcelona for half a season, and it took Marcelino García Toral 72 hours to present his label to Athletic. This is what hiring the Asturian technician entails, that you are sure that you have a model: 4-4-2, withdrawal and aggressive counterattack. With Iñaki Williams leading the attack, a Molotov cocktail against open defenses. In front of the house of cards that is behind Barcelona, ​​an unstoppable hurricane.

From an arrival of Dest to the rojiblanca area, the 1-0 was born when the third minute of the match had not been completed. Theft by Iñigo Martínez, Muniain for Vesga, Vesga for Raúl García and he, from his own field, finds Williams’ gallop on the San Mamés esplanade. Cut on Lenglet and definition with the interior before Ter Stegen. A backlash from a book, Marcelino’s house brand.

From the Cerro Grande (Madrileño). Yellow cards to Vesga, Lenglet and Dani García.


Postponed match corresponding to the second day of the League, played in San Mamés, behind closed doors.

Three minutes later, another notch from Athletic that is expected for the rest of the season. Another example of Barcelona that despairs when he runs towards his goal. Capa started explosively from the right side and Yuri Berchiche finished with power from the left lane, an intervention by Muniain through. He ended up on the side of the net as he could have finished inside, without Barça opposition to the red-and-white transition.

The two shakings roused Barcelona, ​​which until then neither felt nor suffered. The Catalan team does not have a defined game plan, but they do have quality in abundance from the center of the field onwards and when the Barça talent comes together, chances are there.

In the domain of Barça, the Athletic goalkeeper took center stage. What Unai Simón gives you, Unai Simón takes from you. Perhaps too much cost to cover the goal of the selection. With feline reflexes he ruined several Barça occasions, starting with one of Dest at point-blank range after Griezmann left in a great action that Dembélé and Messi had cooked, and following with a couple of distant shots from Dembélé, a shot without an angle from Jordi Alba and a Griezmann’s volley shot. However, the Vitorian goalkeeper came out in the photo of two Barcelona goals.

In the first, around the quarter of an hour, he mismeasured a cross from Messi to the far post looking for De Jong and when the Dutchman returned the ball inside the small area Unai had already given all his goal for Pedri to head at will . In the second, already near the break, only he knew where he left while Pedri himself received on the front, snaked and gave Messi the 1-2 with his heel, who only had to push her while the goalkeeper looked puzzled out of the three sticks. In spite of everything, Barcelona had made merits for the comeback, overcoming the overwhelming start of Athletic, who made the first half long.

Messi double post

On the way back from the changing rooms, Athletic again started with impetus, although this time without creating opportunities of real danger. And as in the first part, the rojiblanco arreón would not last in time. Barcelona regained possession and, novelty this season, sentenced a match that seemed doomed to win over him. Griezmann received on the side of the area, saw the arrival of Messi from the front and put the ball wrapped in gift paper, ready for the Argentine to define from above. Earlier, the wood had violently spat out a missile from Messi’s drone at the squad. After the 1-3, the same right post repelled another left-footed shot from the Argentine after Pedri’s miss and, as there is no quiet victory for this Barça, Muniain made it 2-3 in the 90th punishing a mistake by Messi in the exit of the ball .

The triumph in San Mamés lifts Barça to third place, five points behind Real Madrid and seven points behind Atlético – which has been two games less. Athletic de Marcelino continues in the middle of the table, halfway between Europe, six points, and the decline, five.

The Begur tennis player Paula Badosa premiered in 2021 with a victory in Abu Dhabi tournament, of category 500 by the WTA, when winning (6-2, 5-7 and 6-2) the Latvian Anastasia Sevastova in the first round. In a match that lasted almost two hours, Girona was more aggressive, especially in the third and final set, to take the duel.

Badosa attacked in the first bars of the game and added two consecutive breaks to take the heat. However, in another tight half, this one with five breaks, Sevastova forced the third set in a very tight hose (5-7).

In the last, the two tennis players had saved their best service, but Badosa broke the first ball at a key moment that shook his rival. With 5-2, a new break gave the victory to Begur, who will now face, in the second round, the winner of the duel between the Belgian Elise Mertens and the French Alizé Cornet. A match being played this morning.

Amy Farrah Fowler y Sheldon Cooper en The Big Bang Theory

The Big Bang Theory ended in May 2019 and fans never imagined seeing their actors working together again. But a new series involving Parsons and Bialik remained in the works until last year.

Although Parsons does not play any character in the new series, Bialik in addition to directing and being the executive producer, has the role of a woman who shows that you can be happy at 39 without being married, in the new comedy Call Me Kat which premiered in Fox the last weekend.

Jim Parsons, who played Sheldon in The Big Bang Theory is the creator of the new series and therefore chose Mayin Bialik to bring the lead character to life.

“I was very surprised that Jim Parsons wanted to continue working with me. I think I’m very uncomfortable, but apparently he thinks I’m not as uncomfortable as I think, because he wanted to work with me!”


Germán Beltrán debuts at Barakaldo against Bilbao Athletic in search of leadership

2021 gives way to Second B with a most attractive derby between the Bilbao Athletic and the Barakaldo. Tomorrow at 6:00 p.m., the two teams with totally opposite dynamics will cross their paths in Lezama to try to start the new year in the best possible way. The rojiblanco subsidiary has the opportunity to settle in the first position of the subgroup, since they are currently one point behind the leader, Amorebieta, with one game less. For its part, the factory painting arrives with the great urgency caused by the red lantern. Located in the queue of the classification, this will be the premiere of Germán Beltrán at the reins of the bench after relieving Aitor Larrazabal in this plot.

On the one hand, Bilbao Athletic, which is showing its verticality and excellence, held the result against Real Sociedad B after losing four points in the final measures against Leioa in Sarriena (2-2) and Laredo in San Lorenzo (1- 1). Ewan Urain, who played as a starter against ‘Sanse’ and scored a goal, he was injured and suffers a broken hamstrings that will keep him off the grounds for about a month. It’s time to Tascon o de Baqué, which Etxebe has recycled to the position of 9. On the other hand, Barakaldo received one of lime and another of sand in the last week of competition when they achieved their first win against Deportivo Alavés B (4-2) and then suffered a tough defeat against Portugalete (2-0), which ended up costing Aitor Larrazabal his place.

Likewise, it will be necessary to see if Joseba Etxeberria will be able to count on his right end with Nico Williams, as it seems, since due to the youth of the Navarrese extreme he needs to continue filming, and Oier Zarraga, both in dynamics of the first team, in the case of being off the list against Elche, which is played in San Mamés at 2:00 p.m. Unai López’s injury, with a moderate sprain to his left knee, may give him more tickets to continue in Garitano’s plans, in addition to Aitor Paredes, who was summoned before the Royal Society to replace Yeray Álvarez’s injury.

Otherwise, ‘Etxebe’ will be able to pull from your wardrobe as Diarra eager to add minutes in the wide area next to Beñat Prados and Artola, the same as Xabi Arberas, hitherto unprecedented in the central axis for which it also aspires Ander Lorente from Basconia. It will not be available, in addition to Urain, the left-handed central Antxon Jaso, who underwent surgery last Wednesday for a problem in his right knee to regularize his kneecap of the external meniscus that gave him the can and will be low for the next games in the rojiblanco subsidiary. The central left-handed Navarrese was a fixture from the third day for the Elgoibartarra coach. Victor San Bartolomé he is also ready after suffering some muscle discomfort.

Barakaldo cannot allow more mistakes. The factories do not raise their heads, registering a single victory, a draw and six defeats. Some numbers that condemn him to last place and therefore oblige him to an immediate reaction. This derby is a challenge that involves great difficulty, but eThe change of scenery on the bench and the hunger to add the three points could relaunch the gualdinegro team looking to surprise and get a win against all odds. “We are going to face one of the best teams in the group, if it is not the best, but we are looking for victory, although we have in mind to add whatever it takes,” says Germán Beltrán.

“We want to give joy to the fans”

The Teruel coach knows the club and the squad perfectly, so he has not needed time to adapt. He has been Barakaldo’s second coach for three seasons and now faces his first experience as head of the coaching staff. Its premiere will be in one of the most complex stages of the category, but knowing that a victory would boost the morale of their team, so tomorrow’s match may be a turning point for them. “A victory would give us the necessary boost of morale, we want to give joy to the fans now that everything is in low hours,” he highlights.

The new coach will have to deal with the significant loss of Alain Ribeiro. The midfielder from Getxotarra was a fixture in Larrazabal’s schemes, since he has started at the start in all previous games. However, his expulsion against Portugalete reopens the doors of ownership to ‘Chulo’ Aparicio, main asset of the factories together with Carles Marc and ‘Pitu’ Doncel to form part of the engine room in Lezama. Could also appear ‘War’ in the initial drawing, a footballer who has barely had minutes, at the moment. Even, Txaber will reappear in call after his injury And I could jump back into the green In the same way, irritation e Iriondo are still injured, so the rear aims to be made up of Estrada, Vargas, Julen López and Bengoetxea.
