Salute the luck, Real Madrid fell behind Barcelona

Real Madrid paid the price for wasted opportunity and a bit of unlucky after being Athletic Bilbao held 0-0 at the Bernabeu at 18 La Liga to fall behind in the competition with rivals Barcelona in championship race.


This was the third draw in just a week (previously split points with Valencia and Barcelona) of Real Madrid, leaving them to lead by the Barcelona leader 2 points (39 compared to 37). However, in fact, in all three draws, apart from glitches of the strikers, coach Zinadine Zidane’s army has somehow made friends with bad luck.

In the early match this morning, the trio of strikers Kazim Benzema – Rodrygo – Vincius Junior Real Madrid created a game that overwhelmed and rarely allowed Athletic Bilbao’s goal to be peaceful. However, midfielder Toni Kroos and the aforementioned trio failed to beat the crossbar, vertical column and the god of luck.

Coach Zidane did everything to strengthen the attack when launching all attacking personnel like Gareth Bale and Luka Jovic on the field but Real Madrid still could not break the deadlock. “It is not bad luck, nor complacency. There is no reason to be depressed about this, we need to stay calm and keep our heads cold to continue. We have created many opportunities and if we take advantage of it, things will be different. I just feel sorry for the players when they deserve to get 3 points”, coach Zidane said after the game.

For Bilbao, they almost cost the Royal team to pay for the waste of opportunity when suddenly flooding in the final minutes of the match, but in turn Kenan Kodro and Asier Villalibre both let the goal go smoothly through the toe of the shoe. But the visitors may be very pleased to leave the Bernabeu with 1 point to continue to adhere to the top of the European Cup next season.

The stalemate of Real Madrid further reflects Lionel Messi’s talent as the superstar has reached the 50th goal of the year in Barcelona’s Alaves 4-1 victory. By overcoming the rival, the Catalan team can enter La Liga’s short winter break in optimism to return to the journey to protect the championship from January 4, 2020.

In the early match, Madrid team Atletico climbed to the top 4 with 32 points after a 2-1 victory at Betis thanks to two goals from Angel Correa and Alvaro Morata. Sociedad continued to impress when he defeated host Osasuna after a rain with a victory that ended with a score of 4-3 and followed Atletico Madrid.

M.U is about to reach a great milestone

This weekend, Manchester United (M.U) will surely reach a milestone that no other team in the world can match.


Match M.U – Everton in round 17 of the Premier League will be the fourth match in a row where there is always a player trained by M.U on the field or on the bench. This tradition lasts from October 30, 1937 to the present. People have been trying to find out over the years to see that the few teams closest to M.U in terms of figures are Everton (about 2,000 matches) and Nottingham Forest (about 1,000 matches).

South American football has very few archived data. Anyway, Brazil has only had the league since 1970. In Europe, the life expectancy of La Liga, Serie A, Ligue 1 is less than 100 years, the Bundesliga is much younger. 4,000 matches in the history of a club is too much, let alone the number of consecutive games using young players trained by themselves! Please be added: the players included in this statistic must be those who in addition to competing in MU’s youth training system, their first professional contract must be signed with MU, and they must signed a contract at the age of 18 or younger.

In total, 15 coaches participated in this proud series. Interesting: most people are not aware of the tradition of using players trained by M.U themselves. Ryan Giggs for example. He only temporarily led M.U a few games, and the reason he enabled James Wilson or Tom Lawrence to debut under the M.U shirt is that anyone who practices well will play. Giggs did not know at the time that he was maintaining the tradition of using players trained by M.U himself. Ron Atkinson confirmed that M.U has no policy to use the players he trained. McClaren’s assistant said coach Alex Ferguson knew nothing about this.

In short, no one knows. A man named Tony Park, while spending years scrolling through the libraries looking for the first MU homegrown player, documenting a book, had to go backwards. It was not until 1937 that he was identified as a player Tom Manley. Then there is a back check, a cross check, then the tradition mentioned above was determined in 2013. That was the last year Ferguson led M.U.

Since 2013, M.U has never had a match without a player trained by the team. Then, 3,999 matches have passed, before the 4,000 milestone appeared this weekend.

In total, 279 players rose from the M.U young oven, participating in the last 3,999 matches. 237 players were actually playing (the rest are at least the bench). Their playing time is about 50% of the total playing time of the team. Only 13/3,999 matches, M.U-trained players are not allowed to play (but only on the bench).
