The Lugo de Curro Torres improves its image but not the score

first_imgSix are the matches that Curro Torres counts as Lugo coach. In those six games, Lugo has added only four points of 18 possible, distributed in a victory against Albacete, a draw against Elche and four defeats against Extremadura, Huesca, Rayo and Almería. In the discharge of Mr. Albivermello, it should be noted that of those four defeats, three were against rivals in the upper area and one, the Estremadura, surrounded by controversy over the performance of the VAR.Now him Lugo faces a very complicated displacement as is the next day before the Fuenlabrada, team to which however the lucenses already won in the first leg. However, the need to add three by three is increasingly urgent since the days continue happening without the team leaving the well. The days pass and the CD Lugo still unfinished. Since Curro Torres replaced at the beginning of the year Eloy Jimenez in the albivermello bench, the rojiblancos have significantly improved their image, showing themselves as a more combinative team but, above all, more offensive and brave. However, the improvement in the staging has not been matched with an improvement in the points, and Lugo continues in the lower part of the table, in descent positions.last_img read more

Cornellà picks up the glove

first_imgThe classification does not deceive and Espanyol continues, one more day, in the queue.

The 32,084 spectators who gathered on Sunday at Espanyol-Mallorca constitute not only the second best entry of the season, after 33,562 of the derby on January 4, but the record of influx in any league game that did not have as a rival to the so-called greats (Real Madrid, Atlético or Barcelona), surpassing the 30,029 that congregated against Valencia at the dawn of the stadium, in the 2009-10 academic year. The struggle of Espanyol has only just begun.last_img read more

Video Assistant Referee system used for first time in World Cup history

first_img0Shares0000The Video Assistant Referee (VAR) operation room in Moscow © AFP / Mladen ANTONOVKAZAN, Russian Federation, Jun 16 – The Video Assistant Referee system was used for the first time in World Cup history on Saturday, when France were awarded a penalty against Australia in Kazan.Antoine Griezmann went down after a tackle in the penalty box in the second half of the Group C fixture. Referee Andres Cunha from Uruguay did not award a spot-kick but after viewing the VAR footage, ruled it was a penalty and Griezmann gave France a 1-0 lead.Minutes later Australia drew level through a spot-kick of their own although it was awarded by the referee, with Mile Jedinak coolly beating Hugo Lloris.VAR has been used to varying degrees of success in Serie A and the German Bundesliga, while FIFA used the system at the Confederations Cup in Russia last year.But the English Premier League voted in April not to use the system during the 2018/19 Premier League season after controversial trials in English cup competitions.VAR technology is used in what are considered “game-changing” situations, such as a goal, penalty or red card, and can also be used to help referees with cases of mistaken identity.FIFA director of referees Massimo Busacca admits the system has been rushed in for the World Cup, but insists officials are ready and that VAR will help referees make better decisions in Russia.Pierluigi Collina, chairman of the referees committee at FIFA, said it was time for the VAR to prove its worth in the modern game because referees were “humans” and should have a safety net to prevent them making mistakes.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
