Pellegrino hizo pruebas

LA PLATA -- Mauricio Pellegrino probó variantes, esta vez a puertas cerradas y con mucho hermetismo, y Juan Sebastián Verón volvió a trabajar con normalidad, pero nunca para los titulares, por lo que su regreso sigue siendo un interrogante, que aún no tiene una respuesta definitiva.

El martes las tareas futbolísticas fueron con equipos de 12 jugadores y si bien el miércoles el entrenador paró 11 la tendencia no es definitiva, ya que aún restan varios días para el partido ante Quilmes y recién entre el jueves y el viernes el panorama estará más claro.

Uno de los temas a seguir es la evolución de Patricio Rodríguez, quien ayer tuvo un fuerte traumatismo en el tobillo derecho y se movió en forma diferenciada y también está en duda.

No hubo demasiado datos de los trabajos realizados, pero la práctica no fue buena para los titulares y el DT seguirá con pruebas y ensayos de variantes en los próximos entrenamientos.

En la práctica del miércoles los elegidos por Pellegrino fueron Gerónimo Rulli; Leonardo Jara, Santiago Vergini, Leandro Desábato y Jonatan Silva; Carlos Auzqui, Gastón Gil Romero, Román Martínez y Jorge Luna; Franco Jara y Guido Carrillo.

Tanto Israel Damonte como Verón se movieron para el equipo de los suplentes. El propio mediocampista, uno de los más experimentados del plantel, mantuvo un diálogo con la prensa y dijo que "después de la derrota con Argentinos y el partido que hicimos pasamos un fin de semana horrible".

"Hay que olvidarse rápidamente de lo que pasó, pensar en lo que viene y en ir partido a partido, que de esa manera fue nuestro mejor momento", expresó.

"Hay que poner la cara, tener cada uno su autocrítica y en esta semana larga trabajar y corregir las cosas que estamos haciendo mal para volver a ser el equipo fuerte y sólido de los primeros partidos. Cada uno tiene que hacerse cargo de lo suyo y el otro día sé que no jugué bien, no me sentí a gusto y me hago responsable", comentó un crítico Damonte.

El volante oriundo de Salto amplió y aseguró que "no me salió, como al equipo, un buen partido y no porque no quise sino porque no me salió. Si todos estamos en esa onda vamos a mejorar".

Al referirse a la situación los promedios subrayó que "obvio que miramos esa tabla y come se viene diciendo está todo muy parejo y no hay que dar ventajas ni distraerse. Tenemos que hacer un buen final de torneo y ahí vamos a estar todos más tranquilos".

"Estamos en un lote con la mayoría de los equipos, tan cerca de estar más arriba como de abajo. Dependerá de nosotros en cambiar y no seguir pensando en lo que no se hizo. Garra, sacrificio y ser un equipo luchador nos llevará a tener un mejor final y tratar de ganar un par de partidos seguidos", prosiguió.

Damonte indicó además que "tnemos cinco rivales (Quilmes, Rosario Central, Colón, Godoy Cruz y Tigre) en esta recta final con quién tenemos la obligación de mantener la diferencia y si es posible aumentarla para depender de nosotros y no de los demás".

Sobre el rival que se viene el lunes que presentará el debut de Blas Giunta como técnico puntualizó que "tenemos que hacer nuestro trabajo bien, pensar que podemos ganar y no que ganamos antes de jugar. No están bien y esperemos que no se despierten el lunes".

"Un nuevo técnico puede generar cosas positivas, tras alguna situación de crisis o un mal momento, pero no debemos dejarlos e imponer nuestras condiciones", completó.

El plantel volverá a trabajar el jueves y seguramente Pellegrino comienzará a definir con mayores detalles en el equipo que tiene pensado para el lunes e ir despejando los interrogantes, en especial si vuelve o no Juan Sebastián Verón.

Lanus may have ended San Lorenzo title hopes – all the action

Lanus celebrate a thrilling home win but may have ended San Lorenzo’s title hopes

After two goalless draws in the matches between All Boys and Tigre and then Atletico Rafaela and River Plate, Wednesday’s round of games looked to be a somewhat dull affair.

Thankfully, the later game in Lanus provided a fair degree of entertainment and could have big implications on the title race. Lanus came from behind to defeat San Lorenzo 3-2. The result could leave El Ciclon 6 points off the pace at the end of Round 13.

ALL BOYS 0 – 0 TIGRE

Worrying times for All Boys and Manager, Julio Cesar Falcioni as this is now 6 games without a win and they now find themselves in the relegation zone. Tigre created the better chances particularly in the second half but neither side could do enough to snatch the win.


ATLETICO RAFAELA 0 – 0 RIVER PLATE

River’s woeful attack continued to fire blanks last night and it is now 4 straight games without a win and without a goal. Only 8 goals in their 13 matches tells you all you need to know. That said, they were the better side in Santa Fe and had a goal incorrectly chalked out for offside but there is no escaping the lack of cutting edge in this current River side.


LANUS 3 – 2 SAN LORENZO

San Lorenzo would have gone top had they won in Lanus and for periods of the game that looked likely. However a second half turnaround from the home side saw Lanus take all 3 points and inflict a serious blow to any title aspirations.

Lanus took the lead after just 4 minutes, hitting San Lorenzo on the counter. Santiago Silva fed Pereyra Díaz and his accomplished finish left Sebastian Torrico picking the ball out of his net.

El Ciclon responded well and eventually found an equaliser. Leandro Romagnoli had just missed a guilt edged chance but from the resulting corner, Santiago Gentilletti was able to volley a loose ball past Agustin Marchesin.

Just after the break, the visitors were in front. Romagnoli’s long range effort took a hefty deflection and left Marchesin wrong footed and with no chance.

Everything was going well for El Ciclon until just after the hour mark when Lucas Melano jumped in front of Torrico to head Lanus level.

Then with 18 minutes remaining, Lanus found the winner. Melano stole the ball from Gentilletti and fed Diaz and once again he made no mistake on slotting past Torrico.

If Newell’s win their game with Godoy Cruz in Rosario tomorrow evening the lead at the top could be too great for San Lorenzo to recover.

Merlo busca variantes de cara a Olimpo

BUENOS AIRES -- En el enternamiento del día jueves, Reinaldo Carlos Merlo empezó a dar algunos indicios del equipo que enfrentará a Olimpo, en Bahía Blanca, el próximo lunes por la 13° fecha del Torneo Inicial.

El plantel de Racing se entrenó en la cancha auxiliar del Cilindro de Avellaneda, en el cual el cuerpo técnico dispuso un trabajo táctico para defensores y volantes. El equipo que paró de mitad de cancha para atrás fue el siguiente: Saja; Gómez, Ortiz, Campi, Corvalán; Villar, Zuculini, Rolheiser, Luis Ibáñez. Sin embargo, a mitad del ensayo, Mostaza sorprendió al ubicar a Matías Cahais como doble cinco, al lado de Zuculini, en lugar de Rolheiser. El ex Boca jamás ocupó esa posición.

De todas formas, se desprende que en el lugar del juvenil Gastón Campi seguramente juegue Esteban Saveljich, quien practicó aparte e intensificó su recuperación por el esguince de tobillo, lo cual indica que estará disponible para el lunes.

Por otro lado, la incógnita que surge ahora es si Luis Ibáñez se quedará con el lugar de Rodrigo De Paul. En la delantera no hay dudas: Valentín Viola y Luciano Vietto será la dupla de ataque.

Por su parte, Mauro Camoranesi y Mario Regueiro, quienes continúan recuperándose de sus respectivas lesiones, trabajaron en el gimnasio y continuaron con ejercicios de kinesiología para finalizar con un trote alrededor de la cancha.

Racing disputará en Bahía Blanca un duelo clave para salir del fondo de la tabla de posiciones y estirar la ventaja sobre Olimpo, rival directo en la tabla de promedios. Cabe destacar que los de Avellaneda aún no ganaron en el Torneo Inicial y que no convirerten desde las fecha 5, ante Lanús

Bianchi: "La campaña es correcta"

BUENOS AIRES --- El entrenador de Boca Juniors, Carlos Bianchi, calificó hoy de "correcta" la campaña que está realizando el equipo en el torneo Final.

"Correcta pienso yo que es por los problemas que tuvimos, cuando no pudimos hacer una formación continua y en defensa todas las semanas hay que cambiar un jugador", sostuvo Bianchi al hacer la evaluación del paso de Boca por el Inicial.

En la conferencia de prensa rescató que pese a esos problemas "el equipo está entre los mejores".

El entrenador volvió a lamentar los cuatro puntos que dejaron en el camino en los últimos dos partidos y afirmó que para el encuentro de mañana ante Colón de Santa Fe "no hay otro resultado más positivo que el de los tres puntos".

"En los últimos partidos no sumamos lo que esperábamos. Somos conscientes de que no hay otro resultado más positivo que el de los tres puntos para mañana, hay que sumar", expresó Bianchi en conferencia de prensa.

El técnico comentó que si hubieran conseguido "esos cuatro puntos" que dejaron en el camino al igualar frente a Rosario Central y Godoy Cruz estarían "en otra situación, no en la actual".

Boca está a cinco puntos de Newell´s, el único puntero del torneo Inicial.

Flamengo Thrash Botafogo 4×0:

http://www.youtube.com/w…dyxI-K8rlJE

RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL – A hat-trick from Hernane helped Flamengo to a 4-0 demolition of Botafogo in the Copa do Brasil quarter-final second leg at the Maracanã last night. After a 1-1 draw in the first leg, last night’s massacre helped the Rubro-Negro to a 5-1 aggregate win and granted them a safe passage into the semi-finals.

Flamengo Thrash Botafogo 4x0 in Rio, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil News
Hernane scored a hat-trick last night to send Flamengo through to the Copa do Brasil semi-finals, photo by Alexandre Vidal/Fla Imagem.
As the score suggests, Flamengo were superior from start to finish. In front of close to 60,000 fans, they played with the flair and daring abandon that has been sorely missing from their Brasileirão campaign.

Speaking at the final whistle, Hernane said he had reached his initial objective of thirty goals for the season. “I know my mother is happy, because I called her, told her to be calm, and that I would be decisive. I’ve reached my objective of thirty goals for the year,” he said.

Flamengo opened the scoring on nineteen minutes and never looked back. Marcelo Mattos failed to clear a ball from the Botafogo penalty area and Hernane steered the ball home to send the Flamenguistas wild.

Just after the half-hour, Hernane doubled Flamengo’s lead, hitting home the rebound after Jefferson could only palm an effort from Paulinho. Botafogo tried in vain to respond but found no answer. Rafael Marques was left in isolation at the head of the attack as Seedorf, Lodeiro and Gegê failed to function behind him. Short of chances and bereft of hope, Marques cut a lonely figure for the entire game.

Just before the hour mark, Hernane completed his hat-trick and Flamengo knew their task was complete. André Santos crossed from the left and the No. 9 rose to head the ball into the back of the net. There was even time for Léo Moura to convert a penalty, making Botafogo’s humiliation complete as Flamengo marched without hesitation into the semis.

Tonight, fellow Cariocas Vasco da Gama will try to join them. They play the second leg of their quarter-final against Goiás at the Maracanã, trailing 2-1 from the first game.

Moroccans send Panama packing

Morocco sent a message to other Round of 16-bound teams at the FIFA U-17 World Cup with a comprehensive 4-2 victory over Panama in Sharjah that sees the north Africans finish atop Group C.

Despite surrendering an early lead, Morocco were the better side throughout the 90 minutes, though Panama did have the Moroccans under pressure at the start. The Central American side were rewarded in the 20th minute with Werner Wald’s cool strike, Panama’s first goal of the tournament. Capitalising on Christopher Bared’s free-kick that deflected off the Moroccan wall, Wald found the ball at his feet and his finish only required a simple pass from 12 yards to give the Panama the lead.

The ensuing five minutes saw Panama waste two clear chances that would have doubled their lead. And in the 30th minute, Morocco finally came to life and put on an impressive show, dazzling the Sharjah Stadium crowd with four well-crafted goals.

Younes Bnou Marzouk began the scoring for the north Africans with a dazzling run to beat three defenders, finishing past Jaime De Gracia and into the far corner. The leveler took the wind out of the Panamanian sails as the Moroccan crowd urged their team on to take the lead. Ten minutes later, they had their wish with a go-ahead goal, once again Marzouk providing the finish. A brilliant bit of build-up from the Moroccans gave Karim Achahbar all the time needed to get to the goal-line and pick out Marzouk at the top of the area, He calmly curled his effort into the side netting, leaving De Gracia with no chance.

Morocco picked up right where they left off at the start of the second half, adding their third – and probably best – goal of the match four minutes after the break. A deflected cross found its way out to Hamza Sakhi, whose first touch set him up for a well-taken volley at the corner of Panama´s penalty area that screamed inside the far post.

Achahbar added a fourth with five minutes to play to put the match firmly out of reach. Jaadi made a run through the heart of the Panama defence and hit a powerful shot from distance that De Gracia could only parry away. Unfortunately for the Panama goalkeeper, his attempted save rebounded off the crossbar and straight into Achahbar’s path for a simple header into the empty net.

Panama added a second goal in the 88th minutes when Ismael Diaz set up Ervin Zorrilla, who finished past Morocco goalkeeper Oussayd Belkouch to send the Central Americans home with at least a little bit of consolation. While the win sees Morocco finish first in Group C, the result also sends Slovakia - from Group A - into the Round of 16. Groups E and F finish up on Friday, and the remaining U-17 sides will regroup over the weekend and prepare for the knockout stages to begin on Monday.

Russia awake with rout of Venezuela

European champions Russia finally found their scoring touch, putting four past Venezuela in a simple 4-0 victory. The result from the Fujairah Stadium sees Russia still alive with three points from their three games. It will take a complicated and unlikely series of results for them to move through to the Round of 16 as one of the best third-place finishers, but they are, technically, still alive. Venezuela, on the other hand, head for home after finishing at the bottom of Group D.

Russia finally sprang to life at these U-17 finals, scoring their first three goals of the tournament in the first half of their third game in UAE. Dzhamaldin Khodzhaniiazov’s powerful free-kick after 13 minutes skimmed over the bar after a deflection, but it was a hint of things to come.

Three minutes later, they were 1-0 up. Aleksandr Makarov, alone at the far post, headed home brilliantly from an inch-perfect Dmitriy Barinov cross. The rest of the half was all one-way traffic as the Venezuelans were unable to get much going in attack.

Ayaz Guliev tried a shot from distance in the 21st minute, only to be denied by Beycker Velasquez. With six minutes to go in the half, however, the Russians scored twice. Alexandr Golovin played in Ramil Sheidaev on a quick-thinking play to make the score 2-0, and Golovin made it three in stoppage time to darken Venezuela’s prospects of staying alive in the tournament.

The South Americans, with zero points from their two games, had nothing to lose, and they pushed forward in the second half. Their attempts to claw themselves back into the contest were all in vain though, and they resorted to spiteful fouling. The Russians were the ones who created the better chances when they caught their stretched opponents on the break. In the 85th minute, with Venezuela totally demoralised and resigned to their fate, Russia scored a fourth when Ramil Sheidaev stumbled past his man in the area and fired home from 12 yards out.

Venezuela, who finished the game with ten men after a late red card for Eduardo Maceira, head out of the competition with zero points in a disappointing debut. Russia, for their part, now play the waiting game

Put Your Hands Where I Can See Them And Step… Away… From The Referee!

There’s something about spring in Argentina, isn’t there? Perhaps it’s the balmy temperatures, the relaxed atmosphere that comes with knowing summer is just around the corner, and the knowledge that in a short while, traffic in the big cities will start thinning out as people head off on their holidays.

Oh, who am I kidding? The second the daily temperature gets above about 21 degrees Celsius, this entire country seems to completely lose control of itself. You might be wondering why I’m writing this as a sports feature, so let me explain: I have a theory that the Argentine league is rather like a canary in the coal mine in this respect. The sort of mental, totally unjustified temper tantrums you’ll be seeing on buses and in shops in a couple of weeks get previewed on Argentine football pitches first.

Last weekend was a case in point. On Sunday night, the twelfth round of matches in the Torneo Inicial ended in Mendoza, with Godoy Cruz forced to settle for a draw thanks to a penalty awarded to Boca Juniors with one minute to play, which allowed the visitors to make it 2-2. Viewed as an isolated incident, it’s impossible to argue with the penalty decision. It was a hilariously inept challenge, and if the referee hadn’t given it, it would have been ridiculous.

The thing is, it was the third Boca penalty decision in roughly the last ten or fifteen minutes of the match. The first, in my opinion, should have been given but wasn’t. Either way, the decision was understandable, because to an extent, Boca forward Juan Manuel Martínez had looked for the challenge; that was clearly referee Pedro Argañaraz’s interpretation. The second was almost certainly a foul, but was committed right on the line of the penalty box, and Argañaraz opted to give a Boca free kick on the very edge of the area, rather than a penalty. Then came the final challenge, an undisputed penalty, which was given and scored.

None of this sounds particularly contentious (three decisions, two of which were tricky and for which the ref played it safe, one of which was nailed-on and was given). And yet Argañaraz’s manner of dealing with the players and with other key decisions in the game got Godoy Cruz so hot under their collars that, as soon as the final whistle went, a fight broke out. Now, admittedly it was quite amusing to see Martín Palermo and Roberto Abbondanzieri—both legends at Boca and now the manager and assistant coach of Godoy Cruz, respectively—complaining about officiating bias towards their former club, but the fact that things got so out of hand just proved a wider point.

Last week, Arsenal de Sarandí beat San Lorenzo 3-0 in the Copa Argentina final. San Lorenzo had a man sent off. There were no complaints, because it was a hideous challenge and the scandal would have been if it had gone unpunished. But it was just as well that the card was undisputed, because days before the same two sides had met in Sarandí in the league, and San Lorenzo had two men sent off under rather more contentious circumstances.

That league meeting was the second Arsenal home game in a row in which their opponents had ended the match with only nine men on the pitch. Arsenal were founded by current Argentine Football Association head Julio Humberto Grondona, and their current president is his son, Julio Ricardo Grondona. Their stadium is named after Grondona senior, who has been in charge of the AFA since 1979 and is also a long-standing FIFA Vice-President. He is widely believed (not by anyone linked with this column, oh good heavens no…) to be one of the most corrupt men in world football.

It’s not hard to see, then, why fans of practically every other club in Argentina feel Arsenal are the beneficiaries of a lot of favourable refereeing calls, particularly when they have two men sent off playing in Sarandí, arguably neither of whom should have been.

Bear with me, because the digression of the previous couple of paragraphs has a point, and here it is: following the Arsenal v San Lorenzo league game (a 2-1 win for Arsenal, who scored their winner against San Lorenzo’s nine men in the last minute), there was more pressure than ever on Germán Delfino, the man who was to referee the Copa final—and who, in the end, did a good job. Julito Grondona, as Arsenal president Julio Grondona Junior is known, sarcastically told the press before the match, “I’ll ask Delfino to do everything he can to give San Lorenzo the win…”

Even with Grondona junior making a joke about it, every mention of the subject by any of the protagonists just added pressure to Delfino, and of course to every referee who’ll officiate an Arsenal match for the rest of this season. That Delfino did a good job in the final was true, but it was in spite of, not because of, the media storm.

Of course, at times heaping the blame for a bad result on the referee can serve to protect a club’s own players and keep them from losing confidence. Ask any English football fan and they’ll recognise—whether they like him and his former club or not—that that’s what Sir Alex Ferguson did on many occasions whilst at Manchester United, for instance. But in Argentina so many managers and clubs go on about it so much that it ceases to have that effect, and almost ends up becoming a self-fulfilling prophecy. Teams seem to allow their expectations of the officials to cloud their judgement, and then all hell breaks loose—as appeared to be happening after the Godoy Cruz v Boca Juniors draw, in which a few not especially contentious decisions suddenly became the biggest injustice ever to be visited upon Mendoza Province.

Referees aren’t the only victims in all this. On Friday last week, Quilmes were lucky to escape from their own ground with a 1-1 draw after being completely outplayed by Atlético de Rafaela. On his way out of the stadium, Quilmes manager Nelson Vivas (SEO requirements oblige me to note that he used to play for Arsenal, not of Sarandí but of the English Premier League) was approached by a fan, and promptly turned round and hit him three times in the face. Vivas was dragged off by police and, a couple of days later, resigned.

The day after that incident, the fan—Carlos Dondero—told the press, “I only asked him why he didn’t say anything about the officials always screwing us out of decisions.” I want to separate these two thoughts out now, to be clear: a manager hitting a supporter is clearly way out of line. But a fan opining that his team’s manager should be applying more pressure to the referee strikes me—regardless of what happened right afterwards—as not an especially healthy way of viewing one’s favourite sport. A couple of weeks ago I was at Argentinos Juniors’ 3-1 home defeat to Belgrano, and saw home manager Ricardo Caruso Lombardi offer to fight an Argentinos fan who (one assumes) had told him to calm down a bit after his frankly nuclear reaction to a red card for one of his players.

On Wednesday, as I write this piece, Atlético de Rafaela have just followed up that 1-1 away to Quilmes by escaping with a barely-deserved draw themselves, this time 0-0 at home to River Plate. River scored not one but two goals which were perfectly legal, but the officials ruled both out for non-existent offside calls.

The most surprising/bizarre, but also healthy thing about this after the match was that River manager Ramón Díaz—who’s spent most of the season complaining incessantly about officials cheating his side, before admitting a couple of weeks ago, “We have to be more self-critical,”—simply said to the TV Pública cameras, “We played well but we couldn’t score. We’re having problems in attack … let’s hope it improves before we play Lanús [next week in the Copa Sudamericana].”

I’ll end with a few words from someone who knows far better than I do what he’s talking about when it comes to the pressure faced by referees. Back in April, I interviewed Horacio Elizondo, arguably the last truly world-class referee Argentina produced. If you don’t recognise his name, you’re most likely to know him as the man who sent off Zinedine Zidane near the end of the 2006 World Cup final.

“Everyone looks at it afterwards on television,” Elizondo told me, “and decides whether you did well or badly. Well, sometimes referees do make mistakes, and they should be responsible. Sometimes, on the other hand, there’s a kind of journalism—at least here in Argentina—which isn’t exactly overburdened with an understanding of the rules of the game and the factors affecting how referees make their decisions … Someone passing judgement on whether a referee is good or bad, from a TV studio, can be a very influential factor.”

Later, Elizondo said;

“My idea, now that I’m an analyst myself, isn’t to be down on the referee, kill or criticise the referee, but rather to look specifically at the decisions the referee takes, how he takes them, and look at why this or that referee has had a good or a bad day. If he’s done something bad, we [on the TyC Sports show, Estudio Fútbol] try and look for a solution—how he can correct that mistake next time—and if he’s done well, we look at why that is as well, and I try and give praise where it’s due.”

If only a few more managers and club directors would follow that advice. Here’s hoping, because Argentine football has enough problems in and around its stadia already, without the players and managers everyone’s gone to see in action joining in.

Morelia cruise into Copa MX Final

Morelia emphatically booked their place in the Copa MX last night with a thumping 3-0 win over Monterrey. Two goals from Hector Mancilla, either side of half time and a penalty converted by Carlos Adrián Morales gave Morelia the victory and set up a final against either Alebrijes or Atlas. Whoever wins, Morelia will go into that as favourites.

Atlas take place in Final after penalty drama

The lineup for the Copa MX Final is complete with Atlas booking their place to face Morelia following victory over Alebrijes. Morelia will no doubt be favourites to lift the trophy but Atlas’ presence in the Final comes as a great relief to a disastrous Liga MX campaign.

Gustavo Ramirez had given second tier, Alebrijes de Oaxaca a first half lead but Flavio Santos’ scrappy effort just after the break for Atlas tied the game.

It remained that way and so the dreaded penalties were needed to separate the two sides. With both sides dispatching their spot kicks, the event needed its hero and villain. Jose Medina saw his effort saved and so the final kick fell to Lucas Ayala to award Atlas the victory.
