Real and his “steamroller” impress
Five wins in six matches. This is the almost perfect record of Real Madrid after the start of the season in Spanish La Liga. A champion’s pace that was confirmed last night at the Santiago Bernabeu, with a crushing victory against Mallorca (6-1). But beyond the score, it is the way that delights the Spanish press this Thursday. A real “steamroller” for Marca, led by the eternal Karim Benzema, decisive again yesterday with 2 goals and 2 assists for Marco Asensio. The Spaniard has the honors of Ace this morning, who believes that the attacker “Party” yesterday. For El Pais, Asensio was “The leader of this youth festival” to Madrid. A celebration of which Eduardo Camavinga was one of the great craftsmen. “Impressive”, even writes Ace on its first page of the day.
Griezmann in full doubt
While Karim Benzema shines with Real Madrid, Antoine Griezmann, he eats his black bread with Atlético. Admittedly, the results are there for the Colchoneros, still in contact with the Madrid leader in La Liga, but for the moment, the impact of the 2018 world champion is not being felt. Marca believes that with Luis Suarez and Griezmann, Atlético shows “Its two faces” at the start of the season. The one conquering and decisive, like the Uruguayan, still scorer on Tuesday night in Getafe. And the other, sluggish and “grey” as is Griezmann for the moment, who has still not been decisive since his return to the Spanish capital. Fingers crossed that it will be soon.
Can Koeman hold on?
Lunar press conference yesterday at FC Barcelona. While everyone was preparing for the traditional pre-match Q&A with Ronald Koeman, the Dutchman surprised by reading a press release for 2 and a half minutes before leaving without answering questions from the journalists present. One more case in the crisis that has affected Barça since the start of the season. And this could spell the end of Koeman’s intentions at the head of FCB, especially if the Blaugranas do not beat Cadiz tonight in La Liga. Mundo Deportivo believes that the Batavian wanted “regain control” with this press conference. But this was undoubtedly missed. L’Esportiu think it was his “Ultimate card” to play in order to prove that he could stay. But for Sport, the situation is “Untenable” and the Dutchman could quickly take the door.
