Five stories that leaves the European session
We inaugurated coinciding with the start of most European leagues a series of articles that claim desgranar stories and curious anecdotes that take place during the weekend in major domestic competitions around the world. Among this week, we note that seven of the eight Super Cups disputed this summer have been won by the champions league or in France and Germany, the great ocean liners unforgiving:
1- Domain Champions League: you may be curious or not, but the fact is that with the dispute of virtually every major national Supercopas except for the Spanish and Italian, shows a strong statistical 7-1 for league champions against the cup. Ajax, Manchester United, CSKA, Anderlecht, PSG, Celtic have imposed their law in the various summer tournaments in Europe serve as a prelude to the start of the league. The only exception, maybe, the most striking, the triumph of Borussia Dortmund against Bayern Pep Guardiola who served as a rematch of the final pass of Champions and preventing repeat Pep six titles in his first year at the helm of the blaugrana ship.
2- A double or single party. Following the Supercopa an issue shimmers: You should play a single match or doubleheader? Competition across Europe celebrates a single match on neutral ground. In Spain, it is held over two legs and once the league started. Better or worse? They are the smartest or the dumbest Spanish? It depends. A single party calendar lightens, the trophy is more exciting and even if played in a neutral country such as France has done with Gabon and Italy did in his day with China can get a good pinch (Canada offered the Italian Federation 1,5 euros for playing in Toronto and China 7 Spanish-style).
However, a doubleheader, lockers for each team are wider allowing more revenue, especially if two teams of ,maximum level as often happens in Spain.
3- Yoann Gourcuff. The Olympique Lyon playmaker has risen at the start of the French championship. A goal and two assists lack commanded the triumph of Olympique and implementation across the top of one of the great unfulfilled promises of football gala. With quality, technique and delivery, Gourcuff has this season the opportunity to re-enlist the World Cup in Brazil 2014.
4- Robbie Van Persie. His two goals gave United the win against Wigan in the Community Shield. Top scorer “red devils” we doubt that the Dutchman is now one of the top five players in the world. Speed, technical and goal long shot. An irreplaceable jewel.
5- Guardiola releases, Falcao and disintegration of Anzhi. While Bayern won unconvinced by 3-1 Moenchengladbasch to Borussia in the Bundesliga premiere, Monaco managed to win at Girondins Bordeaux by 0-2 with a goal from Radamel Falcao, who play in Portugal, Spain or France seems to give equal. The Principality have started strong, opposite the PSG drew at home to Montpellier. By last, eye on the news coming from Russia. Anzhi owner seems to have tired of throwing money and not getting results and will put half the team for sale. Among others, Samuel Eto'o can go free Arsenal, Inter, Naples or Chelsea, the four teams interested in having the Cameroonian striker that itself has a high profile.
