LaLiga Santander 2019 – 20TOMadrid, Bara, Atltico and Valencia need to recover stars in attack
TOsoma the Champions League, LaLiga is in the territory of one final per week and Real Madrid, Barcelona, Atltico and Valencia need the best performance of key players in the offensive part that have not been able to shine this season. There are two branches: those who have played a lot with figures far from their possibilities and those who have suffered long-term injuries. What is the decisive player in this new phase of the campaign? Griezmann, Bale, Rodrigo, Joao Flix, Hazard, Diego Costa, Guedes, everyone has something to contribute to their teams.
The gals appears and disappears from the team’s plans. In between, a swirl of gestures, photos and performances that do not invite your prestige. Bale has 908 minutes in LaLiga in 13 games. The most negative of his statistic is that he has only achieved two goals and in the same game, in the visit to Villarreal. That happened on September 1.
In favor: Its overflow capacity and its auction.
Against:His disconnection with the game, his injuries and his lack of commitment.
The French striker, key in the Atlantic in recent seasons, has only left drops of his talent in Bara. Griezmann, a regular starter, has registered 1,810 minutes in 22 games to reach seven goals. The last in the league was sealed on December 21 before the Alavs. The situation of Bara, without Luis Surez and Dembl, makes him need the best Griezmann, whose partnership with Messi still does not give dividends. His last big game was in Ibiza, decisive to pass the round. In the final of San Mams he was substitute.
In favor:Its quality, undeniable, and its intelligence.
Against:He doesn’t look comfortable. He lacks a striker to help him.
The Portuguese is accusing his arrival to a new and different ecosystem from the one he was used to. Its price of 127 million has not contributed to lowering the expectations placed in him and more after an imposing summer in which he scored great goals. Joao Flix has spent 1,272 minutes on the field in 17 championship games. The midfielder has only added two goals, the last of them arrived on October 25 in the rojiblanca victory in Palma de Mallorca. He needs a good game against a great team to regain confidence. The team’s gameplay is also a challenge for the former benfiquista.
In favor:His youth and his talent.
Against:The pressure and lack of partners for your game.
There is no way to understand Rodrigo’s season without resorting to entanglement. He is from Valencia, but he spent a few hours in the Atlantic. I continued in Valencia and recently had a foot in Barcelona. He continued in Valencia, in the middle of this whirlwind, and has added 1,367 minutes in 20 games. The international has only added 2 goals and has not scored since November 30 against Villarreal. Luck in Valencia in the season may depend on the performance of the striker.
In favor:Speed and dribbling
Against:Lack of toe and injuries.
one)In itsfirst season in Spain the Belgian HazardHe has been a prisoner of injuries. The first, muscular, it cost him to delay the adaptation. The second, after a Meunier entry, has kept him out for more than two months. Hazard has 608 minutes in 8 league games and has scored a goal against Granada. This may be the week of his return. The best ‘signing’ of Madrid.
In favor:Dribbling, quality, vision, assists.
Against:Start over from scratch.
two) Diego Costa left the Atletico de SimeoneNo killer look. The Hispano-Brazilian, operated on a hernia, has been out for two and a half months. Before he could complete 756 minutes in 11 games to add two goals. The last one was celebrated on October 19 against Valencia. In the final stretch of his recovery, the goal is to be available for next Tuesday’s meeting against Liverpool.
In favor: Your instinct and your competitiveness.
Against:With little time to recover a great level.
3)TheValencia suffers the absence of Guedesduring most of the season. The Portuguese, far from being the rocket of its first season, has been off almost four months for a right foot injury. Guedes has only been able to be on the field 475 minutes in 7 games and has his scoring account to zero. Last Saturday he reappeared in the League against Getafe. The decisive stage of the season awaits.
In favor:Demonstrated what he was capable of. Power and quality
Against:Irregularity and disconnection.
