The Madrid team wanted to knock another First but fell short and saw his two-month streak cut without losing. The newcomer Isi gave the locals a lot, as they expect in Vallecas after Embarba’s departure, and Andrés Martín, Mario Suárez and Joni Montiel had good chances.The ‘submarine’ lived further from the rival goal and approached in some local loss, with the advanced lines as usual Jémez team, with Bacca and Ontiveros. The second part was gradually yellow, with many people above and better mobility with the entrance of Cazorla. A goal by Quintillá was annulled by the VAR but Niño, who debuted in the league scoring both the victory against Alavés on Saturday, and Cazorla knocked down the Vallecano dream.In addition, Real Sociedad made it easy against Osasuna, despite a first exchange of blows, with goals from Isak and Cardona for the immediate 1-1.

Aston Villa perpetuate the English reign in the European Cup

first_imgThere are that they assure that he Bayern he won all the European Cup finals he deserved to lose and lost all the ones he deserved to win. The fans of Atlético, Saint Étienne, Leeds, Valencia and Dortmund, their victims in the European Cup, will surely contribute data that confirms this. Legend or not, what is certain that the Bavarians were superior to Aston Villa in that 1982 Rotterdam Final. He could even thrash. But the German strikers ran into a very young Spink, who like Iker Casillas in 2002 in Glasgow against Leverkusen, went out to supply the goal at injured Rimmer and he became the great hero of the party. White took advantage of what was practically Villa’s only chance to score the only goal of the match and give the title to his team.With that victory, the Aston Villa was proclaimed as England fourth team in winning the European Cup after United, Liverpool and Nottingham Forest (No country has so many champions, to which we must also add the Chelsea) and perpetuated the golden age of British football on the continent, in which it was the fifth orejona Consecutive for the English country. The Villa reaffirmed his glory in the European Super Cup, in which he beat Barça, but as a result of that, he faded until he dropped to Segunda in 1987. The ‘villains’ were never so scary. The 80s started in England with the disappearance of a myth, John Lennon, and the resurrection of another, the Aston Villa. Only a year after the Nottingham Forest will earn your second European Cup (1980), the Birmingham ‘villains’ won their seventh and so far last English league 71 years after your previous title in 1910. By then term Old Glory (Vieja Gloria) perfectly coined a club that had won the Most of their leagues in the 19th century. Ten years before winning the English league, the town I played in Third divisionBut his return to the elite was not as surprising as that of Nottingham Forest a few years ago. Little by little, by the technician Ron Saunders, he was building a competitive team that important players like Gordon Cowans, Dennis Mortimer, Tony Morley and above all, Peter White, and after his return to the First in 1975 he was already fighting for European positions. The title definitely came in season 1980-81.The following year, the ‘villains’ advanced with good pace in the European Cup, after eliminating the Valur and Dinamo Berlin when something unexpected happened. Saunders faced the directive and was fired, and his assistant Tony Barton took over. Everything seemed to indicate that without the great leader of the project and in the most decisive phase of the course, the ‘villains’ adventure would end soon. And once again, history showed that in the football everything is possible. In the quarterfinals and semifinals, the English team defeated two greats of the time, the Dinamo Kiev and Anderlecht, and reached the final against a powerful Bayern Munich in which stars of the level of Rummenigge, Breitner and Augenthaler, among others, shone.last_img read more
