CHAMPIONS LEAGUE: ROUND 16, OUR PREDICTION (article in English and Español)

We have the draws of the Round 16 of the Champions League and there is here our prediction:
Possibly it is the more balanced draw since both have incredible squads and both are leaders in their respective leagues, but we do not know but Inter does not transmit great feelings, since it plays with a little laziness, knowing that it is the best Italian team and that it will win the Serie A games without many problems in any play thanks to the quality of the players like the excellent striker Diego Milito and Samuel Eto'o or the top midfielder Wesley Sneijder. Maybe this laziness may be enough to win games against normal teams but it is insufficient in important and complicated games like this draw against FC Chelsea and in fact Inter won only 2 Champions league´s game until this moment, showing a poor image in different games like in the game at the Camp Nou against FC Barcelona. José Mourinho has to work to have a serious candidate to win this draw against FC Chelsea, which continues as habitual in the last year, with good level both defensive and offensive-it is Premier League´s team with less goals received and besides is the top scorer-.Anyway, one thing is clear, any football fan must watch these games, since the spectacle is guarantee with players like Joe Cole, Didier Drogba, John Terry, Deco, Essien, Ballack, Zhirkov, Lucio, Sneijder, Eto'o, Milito, Julio Cesar, Maicon, Balotelli ... ..
If FC Barcelona is always a favourite, what we can say this time, since it will play against a team which has many problems during this season:15th position in the Bundesliga-3 wins in 17 games-, it has new coach, Christian Gross-former Basle´s coach-, who arrive to replace Markus Babbel to try to fix the problems of the team, which has both defensively –it is normal if you have a goalkeeper like Jens Lehmann(his last mistake was during the last game where he committed an absurd aggression over the Mainz striker Aristide Bance and the result was a red card and a penalty)-and offensively, since although it has good players like the Romanian offensive midfielder Ciprian Marica-perhaps is the best player on the team-or the good Russian striker Pavel Pogrebnyak, they are not finding the correct way to get a good sum of goals. So, many problems to can be a real alternative and to have some chances to beat an excellent and powerful team like this current FC Barcelona, which is being a solid and strong team in all the lines and of course with incredible results, 6 titles in a season, the last, the World Championship after a complicated game against a hard Estudiantes de La Plata.
Good and equalized draw, although we think that Girondins has more chances to play next round, cause the Laurent Blanc´s team is showing that the last season French title was not a fluke and this season, it is showing a great strength both in Le Championat-it is the comfortable leader-and in the Champions League, where it finished in top position of a complicated and strong group with Juventus and Bayern Munich as rivals, showing that is a very balanced team in all lines thanks to the level of players like the defender Ciani, the midfielders Fernando Menegazzo and Alou Diarra, the imaginative and skilled Yoan Gourcuff-many team, like FC Barcelona, are following this player-, the right winger Yoan Gouffran or as the skilled striker Marouane Chamakh, who, by the way, finish his contract with Girondins this summer. So, it is a very good team and I think that it will impose its quality to Olof Mellberg, Dudu Cearense, Stoltidis, Enzo Maresca and Costas Mitroglou.
It will also be a balanced draw, since although CSKA is not making a good season in the Russian league-5th position in the standing-, it is a dangerous team in this kind of rounds, since it has a competitive squad with players like the great young goalkeeper, Igor Akinfeev, or the solid defender like the Berezutsky brothers, Sergey Ignashevich or the Lithuanian back Semberas, or the experienced midfielder Evgeni Aldonin, or the excellent right midfielder Milos Krasic-possibly the best player of the team and one of the best right midfielder of the world- or “the young pearl” Alan Dzagoev, who is on the agendas of many top European clubs. Perhaps the biggest problem of this team is the lack of a great and top striker and its lack of competition´s games, since the Russian league finish this month and of course it will be complicated to the Russian team to play against a team, whose players are 100% and specially if the rival players are players with the level of players like Jesus Navas, Kanoute, Luis Fabiano, Alvaro Negredo or Diego Perotti.
Arsenal-it will play without the injured Robin Van Persie-will have many problems to beat FC Porto, which is a good team , since Jesualdo Ferreira has competitive players in all the lines if we exclude the goalkeeper Helton. It will be very nice to see the different duels during this draw: the hard Bruno Alves-he scores many goals with his head-and Rolando against Theo Walcott and Eduardo; the competitive Fernando, Raul Meireles and Fernando Belluschi against Samir Nasri, Francesc Fàbregas and Andrei Arshavin or the battle between the great Hulk -the "incredible" Hulk is the best player of the team, he has vision, quality and goal-and the wily Radamel Falcao-8 goals in 12 Superliga´s games-against the Arsenal defensive´s line. So, we have a very attractive battle and although Arsenal is the favourite, it has to play 100%.
This draw can be a trap for Real Madrid because although it might seem relatively straightforward, since Olympique is making a poor season in the French league –it is far from the first place of the standing, with a terrible and strange streak of 3 wins in the last 10 games-, we think that Real Madrid should be careful because the Lyon´s coach, Claude Puel, is a great strategist and knows to get the best performance of his teams in this kind of games, especially if his squad is composed by good players, like this Lyon, where we can find players like the goalkeeper Lloris-player of the French national team-, or the good midfielders like the strong Toulalan and Jean Makoun or the skilled Ederson, Michael Bastos or the young Bosnian Miralem Pjnaic (one of the pearls of European football), or the complete offensive line with players like the skilled Lisandro Lopez- he is adapted 100% to the European football- and the powerful Bafetimbi Gomis. In short, it is a complete team and of course it can trouble Real Madrid, whose performance is uncertain, since until this moment it is not playing very well and we will see if in February Kaka and Karim Benzema will be 100% adapted, if the team will have defensive problems after the Pepe's injury....
It seems that finally the Louis Van Gaal´s team has found the correct way and it is gradually improving its level and after a disappointing start-2 points in the 3 first Bundesliga´s games-,it is making a great final part of the year both in the Bundesliga-it is very close of the top position in the Bundesliga´s standing-and in the Champions League, where it got an amazing win at the Olimpico di Torino (1-4). Great results for a team whose squad is very complete, since we can find players like Philipp Lahm, Daniel Van Buyten or the offensive back Danijel Pranjic in the defensive line, the hard Anatoliy Tymoshchuk, young Thomas Müller (one of ”the german pearls” and one of the sensations of the season), the incredible Franck Ribéry (one of the best in the world), Arjen Robben or the dangerous Bastian Schweinsteiger as midfielders, or the powerful forward´s line with players like wily Ivica Olic, Mario Gomez and Miroslav Klose. So, it is a top team, called to make good thing this season and we think that it will not have many problems to beat Fiorentina, cause Fiore in at this moment far from being a competitive team and in fact it is making a poor Serie A´s season- in the middle of the standing- with many offensive problems, which is a bit strange, since Cesare Prandelli has good offensive players like the young Jovetic-the Montenegrin has a great future-, Gilardino or Adrian Mutu-he is far from his best level-.
It is unknown what AC Milan we will see against United, if it will show its Bernabeu´s image-it played well against Real Madrid-or if it will show the other face, the face showed during the game against Inter (0-4, hard defeat) or during the games against modest Zurich. Obviously if the AC Milan wants to have any chance to beat Manchester United, it will need the best of all the stars-it needs the best performance of its best player, the Brazilian Alexandre Pato, who will have a complicated games against the great Vidic-Rio Ferdinand-, playing a hard style, closed game, without concession, impeding the United´s style some tough matches, since if United, which has better defensive and offensive level, can play with speed, it will be the clear favourite and it will pass to the next round without many troubles.

Se acaban de sortear los octavos de final de la Champions League con los siguientes emparejamientos:
Si al FC Barcelona hay que tenerlo siempre como favorito en cualquier eliminatoria, mas si cabe en este caso, pues el Stuttgart de esta temporada-al menos hasta este momento-está muy lejos de ser un equipo competitivo, deambula en la 15ª posición de la Bundesliga-2 victorias en 16 partidos de liga-, acaba de llegar Christian Gross-ex del Basilea- al banquillo en sustitución de Markus Babbel para tratar de arreglar los problemas de un equipo que está mostrando debilidad defensiva-algo normal con Jens Lehmann en la portería (sigue con sus actuaciones lamentables y su último numerito fue una agresión absurda al delantero del Mainz Aristide Bance que ocasionó penalty y expulsión)y sobre todo una importante falta de pegada pese a tener buenos jugadores ofensivos como el media punta rumano Ciprian Marica-quizás es el mejor jugador del equipo- y el buen delantero ruso Pavel Pogrebnyak-parece que está cogiendo el olfato, ya que ha marcado en los 2 últimos partidos disputados-. En fin, equipo con muchos problemas y que no debe ocasionar ningún problema al equipo de Pep Guardiola.

Eliminatoria pareja pero si nos tenemos que decantar por un equipo, creemos que el Girondins pasará pues el equipo de Laurent Blanc está demostrando que el título de campeón de la liga francesa la temporada pasada no fue una casualidad y este año está mostrando una gran solidez tanto en el Championat-cómodo líder- como en la Chamions League, quedando primero en un grupo fuerte con Juventus y Bayern Munich como rivales, gracias a que tiene un equipo muy compensado en todas las líneas con jugadores como Ciani en defensa, Fernando Menegazzo y Alou Diarra en el doble pivote, el imaginativo y genial Yoan Gourcuff-seguido por muchos grandes como el FC Barcelona-, el medio derecho Yoan Gouffran o como el habilidoso delantero Marouane Chamakh, que por cierto termina contrato esta temporada. Es decir buenos juegadores que creemos que se impondrán a los Olof Mellberg, Dudu Cearense, Stoltidis, Enzo Maresca o Costas Mitroglou.

También será un emparejamiento equilibrado pues si bien el CSKA no está realizando una buena temporada en la liga rusa-5º clasificado a 9 puntos del líder, el Rubin Kazan-sí que es un equipo peligroso a doble partido, pues tiene un gran portero, el joven capitán Igor Akinfeev, una sólida línea defensiva con jugadores como los hermanos Berezutski, Sergey Ignashevich o el lateral lituano Semberas, jugadores experimentados como el medio centro Evgeni Aldonin y jugadores muy desequilibrantes como el interior derecho Milos Krasic-posiblemente el mejor jugador del equipo y uno de los mejores del mundo en su puesto-o el joven Alan Dzagoev que está en las agendas de todos los grandes del fútbol europeo. Quizás su principal problema es la falta de un gran nueve y que cuando se juegue la eliminatoria contra el Sevilla, el CSKA llegará sin ritmo de competición-la liga rusa termina ahora-, lo cual es un gran inconveniente si delante tienes jugadores al 100% y de tanta calidad como Jesús Navas, Kanoute, Luis Fabiano, Alvaro Negredo o Diego Perotti. Eliminatoria bonita siendo el favorito el Sevilla CF

Muchos problemas tendrá el Arsenal-jugará la eliminatoria sin el desequilibrante extremo Robin Van Persie- para eliminar a un buen equipo como es el FC Porto, pues el equipo de Jesualdo Ferreira tiene un muy buena pinta pues si descontamos la portería-Helton no es muy fiable-, tiene jugadores de gran nivel en todas las líneas como los duros centrales Bruno Alves-muy peligroso en los córners, consiguiendo muchos goles de cabeza- y Rolando; los correosos medios Fernando y Raul Meireles, el habilidoso Fernando Belluschi, el desequilibrante Hulk-el “increíble” Hulk es sin duda el mejor jugador del equipo, tiene visión, regate y gol- y el astuto Radamel Falcao, que se está adaptando bastante bien a la Superliga portuguesa y lleva 8 goles en 12 partidos disputados. Es decir, es un buen equipo y mucho van a sudar los Cesc Fàbregas, Andrei Arshavin, Eduardo, Theo Walcott o Samir Nasri para poder eliminar al conjunto luso.

Eliminatoria trampa para el Real Madrid porque si bien puede parecer relativamente sencilla, pues el Olympique está realizando una mala temporada en la liga francesa-4º clasificado a 8 puntos del Burdeos-, con una pésima y extraña racha de 5 partidos sin ganar-2 victorias en los últimos 9 partidos-, hay que decir que el Real Madrid debe tener cuidado porque el entrenador del Lyon, Claude Puel, es un gran estratega y sabe sacar mucho rendimiento a sus equipos en eliminatorias a doble partidos, sobre todo si en sus filas tiene jugadores de mucho nivel como el portero Lloris, o los que forman un medio del campo muy compensado-la contención con jugadores como Toulalan o Jean Makoun y la imaginación con jugadores como Ederson, Michael Bastos o el joven bosnio Miralem Pjnaic(una de las perlas del fútbol europeo)- o la buena dupla atacante formada por un desequilibrante Lisandro López-totalmente adaptado al fútbol europeo-y el poderoso Bafetimbi Gomis. En fin, una conjunto con jugadores de nivel y que pueden poner en más de un aprieto a un Real Madrid que habrá que ver cómo llega, si Kaka ya se habrá adaptado totalmente, si habrán solucionado los problemas defensivos tras la lesión de Pepe, si Karim Benzema se aclimata totalmente, si llegan jugadores de banda….

Parece que finalmente el conjunto de Louis Van Gaal ha puesto la directa y que poco a poco está mejorando el nivel de juego y tras un inicio decepcionante-2 puntos de 9 posibles-, está realizando un gran final de año tanto en la Bundesliga-ya es 3º a 2 puntos del líder, el Bayer Leverkusen- como en la Champions League con esa gran victoria en el Olímpico de Turín(1-4). Grandes resultados para un equipo que tiene una plantilla muy completa con jugadores de mucho nivel en todas las posiciones y que están llamados a hacer algo grande esta temporada-Philipp Lahm, Daniel Van Buyten o el ofensivo Danijel Pranjic en defensa; el duro Anatoliy Tymoshchuk, el joven Thomas Müller (una de las revelaciones de la temporada), los desequilibrantes Franck Ribéry(uno de los mejores del mundo) y Arjen Robben, el siempre peligros Bastian Schweinsteiger en el mediocampo; o la poderosa delantera formada por los astutos Ivica Olic, Mario Gómez o Miroslav Klose. Es decir, mucha calidad y que creemos que se impondrá con bastante facilidad en esta eliminatoria, porque la Fiore está muy lejos de ser competitiva, de hecho está perdida en la clasificación de la Serie A-11ª posición- con muchos problemas de pegada, aunque tiene un buen tridente, formado por el joven Jovetic-gran futuro el que tiene el montenegrino-, Gilardino y Adrian Mutu-lejos de su mejor nivel-, pero no creemos que pueda ser suficiente para poner al conjunto alemán en serios apuros.

A priori parece la eliminatoria más equilibrada, pues ambos conjuntos atesoran grandes plantillas, líderes de sus respectivas ligas, pero no sé, el Inter no me acaba de transmitir grandes sensaciones, pues juega un poco con desidia , sabiéndose superior en la Serie A y que en cualquier jugada por medio de Diego Milito-grandísimo delantero-, Samuel Eto´o o Wesley Sneijder va a decantar el partido, lo cual puede ser suficiente para ganar partidos ante equipos medios pero es insuficiente en los partidos de nivel y exigencia como contra el FC Chelsea y de hecho el Inter en Champions sólo ganó 2 partidos de 6, mostrando una pobre imagen en diversos partidos como el del Camp Nou contra el FC Barcelona. Mucho va a tener que trabajar José Mourinho para que su equipo pueda ser realmente un serio candidato a imponerse en esta eliminatoria ante el FC Chelsea, que sigue como siempre en los últimos años, sólido y con pegada-es el equipo más goleador de la Premier y el menos goleado-. Lo que está claro es que uno no se puede perder un partido cuando en el campo juegan jugadores como Joe Cole, Didier Drogba, John Terry, Deco, Essien, Ballack, Zhirkov, Lucio, Sneijder, Eto´o, Milito, Julio Cesar, Maicon, Balotelli…..

Es una incógnita qué AC Milan veremos ante el United, si veremos la cara que mostró en el Bernabéu o si veremos la cara del partido del Inter(humillante derrota por 0-4) o de los partidos contra el modesto Zurich-el AC Milan fue incapaz de ganarle-. Evidentemente si el AC Milan quiere tener alguna posibilidad necesita lo mejor de todas sus estrellas, haciendo unos partidos duros, sin concesiones, trabados, feos, que el United tenga problemas para darle velocidad al juego, porque si no lo hace así, pocas opciones va a tener de llevarse la eliminatoria. Creemos que en todo caso Leonardo tendrá que confiar en que Dida tenga un día afortunado, lo cual es poco probable y que el gran Alexandre Pato( el mejor jugador de largo del AC Milan) marque las diferencias las diferencias en el ataque y se pueda imponer a una de las mejores parejas de centrales del mundo, Vidic-Rio Ferdinand.
En fin, nuestro favorito es el Manchester United, que tiene mucha mejor defensa y ataque que el AC Milan.

BASKETBALL: THE RICKY´S DECISION (article in English and Español)

Finally the Ricky Rubio´s issue arrived to the final decision and the 18 year´s old Spanish guard arrived an agreement with the Regal FC Barcelona to play in this team during the next 6 seasons.
The truth is that the Ricky´s affair has been a very complicated issue and we have seen many thing and situation during the last 5 months: the player's decision to be in the NBA draft 09- the normal thing when a player of this level decides to be in a NBA Draft is that he and his agent (Dan Fegan) have things more or less clear about the future and the teams which have a real interest in his acquisition and obviously according to the result of the draft ( he was drafted with the fifth pick in the first round by the Minnesota Timberwolves), his agent did not make a good job-; unlucky Ricky's statements-I can not understand the statements appeared in some newspapers in which there was not a real interest to play in teams like Oklahoma City Thunder or Memphis Grizzlies and of course the normal thing occurred during the Draft and these teams did not choose Ricky Rubio-; Ricky and his agent´s bad decisions, since according to the Sacramento Bee, Dan Fegan declined to make a trial between Ricky and other rookies for the Sacramento Kings and this team, which was the team wanted by Ricky, did not choose the Spanish guard in the NBA draft-; the complicated situation between Ricky and his team(Joventut Badalona) when Ricky Rubio sued Joventut Badalona because he disagree about the sum of money that he had to pay to the team in order to play in other team-I think that Ricky and his parents signed the contract without any pressure, isn´t it?-; Ricky´s unclear statement about his NBA new team, Minnesota Timberwolves; the interest from teams like Olympiakos, Real Madrid, New York Knicks or Regal FC Barcelona to sign the young guard-finally the catalan team got the play of the Spanish guard after a transfer fee of 4.2 million euros, which means that it is the most expensive transfer in the history of the European basketball. We'll see if this transfer is a good business for FC Barcelona, since nowadays Ricky is just a good player, especially defensively, he is a player who FC Barcelona needed to complete the guard´s position, since Jaka Lakovic is especially a shooter and the other guard,Victor Sada, is worker player. But I do not know if to spend 6 millions euros in 2 years(transfer fee + the salary) in this player is the best idea,since this player has not a big experienced in crucial games, like other European guards like Sarunas Jasikevicius(4 times Euroleague´s champion), Theo Papaloukas(2 times Euroleague´s champion) or Dimitris Diamantidis (2 times Euroleague´s champion), who had cost less money. I think the Ricky´s presence is not a guarantee to win the Euroleague, but this was the Joan Laporta´s decision, which can be another example of his mismanagement-;an apparent agreement between the Joventut Badalona and Minnesota Timberwolves for the Ricky´s transfer at the last minute to play this year in the NBA-I do not know if this agreement was true, since there have been many half-truths about the Ricky´s situation during the last 5 months...So, Ricky generated much news during these months and certainly finally it was a bored issue, so we have to congratulate to see the end of this story. Now it's time to see Ricky on the floor, growing as a player and improving his 5-6 metres shot to have many chances to be in 2 years in the starting lineup of any NBA team. The European Championship starts next week and of course it will be a good place to see the Ricky´s play. Cheers,
