With or without Ibrahimovic, AC Milan is still AC Milan


football-studs.co.ukAC Milan were held to a 1-1 draw at Lille in the matchday 4 duel in Group H of the 2020/21 Europa League. The team’s performance and struggles were satisfying in the eyes of Daniele Bonera, although the final results were disappointing.

This is the second match Bonera stands to replace Stefano Pioli on the sidelines. Pioli and several other coaching staff have had to undergo a period of self-quarantine due to COVID-19.

Milan also played well at Lille. They took the lead through Samu Castillejo’s goal in the 46th minute, and could have scored more had they played more effectively.

Unfortunately, Milan actually let Lille equalize and had to settle for one point.

Milan’s youthful spirit

For Bonera, the performance of his team in this match has been very good, only the final result is not as expected. They also tried to control the match and managed to suppress their opponents.

“We delivered a good performance, unfortunately we lost our focus on the process of their goals, because actually the team can control this match,” said Bonera in Italian Football.

“This Milan is much different from Milan who play at home. We are satisfied with the team spirit, the way the team works together.”

“The only disappointment tonight was the final result,” he added.

Younger Milan

Without several senior players, Milan can still rely on young players. Even the average age squad for the Milan squad in this match is 22 years.

“We are pleased to see young players developing, because on several occasions you need that wild young spirit,” continued Bonera.

“This is a young Milan squad with experienced players like Simon Kjaer, who is obviously very helpful.”

Ibra’s absence

The performance of this young Milan squad also denied accusations that Milan are now too dependent on Zlatan Ibrahimovic , it has been proven that they can play well without the superstar who was forced to miss due to injury.

“We showed even before this match that our team was able to overcome the absence of him [Ibrahimovic],” continued Bonera.

“He is a very important player, but team spirit is always the same, with or without Ibra,” he said.

Real Madrid’s plan to make massive transfers, to Man United’s loss

As we know, the news recently that Real Madrid will not spend a lot of money to spend on players in the transfer market this summer. This was conveyed directly by the President of Real Madrid, Florentino Perez, when asked about the transfer of Kylian Mbappe. Perez said that Los Blancos will not make large-scale transfers.

“It’s difficult to ask players to take salary deductions to handle the situation and then buy players like that (Mbappe).” “Madrid will recruit the best players again when the situation changes,” Perez added.

“No, the situation is really bad,” Perez told the media who asked. Because the plan is estimated to be able to make Manchester United a loss. That is because the names that will be targeted by Real Madrid are also the target of the Red Devils. Real Madrid are also interested in buying Badiashile some time to come. Badiashile would later be projected to be a replacement for Raphael Varane in the long run. Besides Badiashile, there is the name of Erling Haaland who is also still associated with the transfer to Old Trafford. Reportedly, Perez is a big fan of Haaland and wants to bring the Norwegian in 2022.

In addition to the two names above, there is still Mbappe and Rennes wonderkid, Eduardo Camavinga, who will be imported in 2021.
Los Blancos' master plan seems to give alarm for Manchester United to immediately take steps.


Real Madrid’s Desire to Have a Young Defender Sevilla

FOOTBALL-STUDS Real Madrid reportedly are interested in getting ESPN Sevilla Sevilla defender, Jules Kounde, this summer. However, Madrid’s efforts to propose a 21-year-old player is believed not to be easy.
Recently Jules Kounde began to be highlighted by various media because he was Real Madrid on July 3, 2019. He bailed out Sevilla from Bordeaux with a tag of 25 million euros (Rp 426 billion).

Since then, Kounde has been able to become an important figure in the sector behind Sevilla. A duet with Diego Carlos in the heart of the defense, Jules Kounde was able to make Los Nervionenses into the ranks of the club who conceded a little in La Liga.

Sevilla, who finished the season in fourth place in La Liga final standings, conceded only 34 goals in 38 matches. The amount is less than Barcelona who finished second, and conceded 38 goals.

Attracted by the brilliant performance of Jules Kounde

Jules Kounde’s brilliant performance made Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane smitten. Zidane needs the Frenchman to add solid back to Los Blancos next season.

In addition, Jules Kounde is considered as an ideal figure to be a substitute for Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos. At present, Ramos is 34 years old and is about to retire.
Even so, Real Madrid’s efforts to redeem Jules Kounde from Sevilla will not be easy. Because, Los Nervionenses still need Kounde to occupy a post in the back line.

In addition, Sevilla are also worried about losing Diego Carlos. The new player brought in from Nantes on May 31, 2019, is often associated with Liverpool.

History of Real Madrid Football Club

in this new first year there was a stage in the cupboard of three trophies that were seized by Real Madrid made by José Mourinho. The most highlighted was the 2011-12 La Liga title, which was done by creating a record of 100 points, the highest number achieved so far in the history of this competition, and 121 goals. And successfully lifted the King’s Cup and faced with Barcelona and the Spanish Super Cup.

In June 2013, Carlo Ancelotti arrived at Real Madrid. The Italian manager was able to win four titles with the Whites squad. The first was the nineteenth King’s Cup, by beating Barcelona in the final. On 24 May 2014 the Whites won the European Cup again. With a 4-1 win over Atlético they managed to bring la Décima. Ramos, Bale, Marcelo and Cristiano have secured the victory

In the second season Ancelotti was won two new titles: the European Super Cup against Sevilla and Real Madrid’s first Club World Cup over San Lorenzo. In this way, 2014 closed with several titles from Real Madrid. In June 2015, Rafa Benítez returned to the club where he was formed to lead the “blanco” squad. In 2016, Zidane became the first team coach after going through the legendary career as a player. His first season ended with the title “Endécima” when he took the lead against Atletico in Milan. Click here.

The second season of the French coach was full of victories. Real Madrid have won ‘la Duodécima’, and have become the first team to be able to defend the Champions League title. Together with European competition titles, the 2016-17 League Cup, the third European Cup and the second Inter-Club World Cup have also been won in Japan. The 2017-18 season starts with lifting another European Super Cup, after winning over Manchester United, and with the tenth Spanish Super Cup. In December 2017 came another Club World Cup, and broke the record number of titles in one year with a total of five titles. 2018 is also the year of Madrid legend thanks to the struggle for the thirteenth title or Decimotercera, which was won against Liverpool in the final match in Kiev, and the seventh world cup title, which was won in the United Arab Emirates against Al Ain.

Erling Haaland Opens the Door for Real Madrid

Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Braut Haaland did not rule out the possibility of moving to a bigger club in the future. The player who was only 19 years old might be anchored at Real Madrid in the future.

Haaland became the brightest young player in the 19/20 season. Before riveting together with Dortmund, Haaland was able to steal the attention of many pairs of eyes while still defending RB Salzburg.

Even before that, when playing in the U-20 World Cup in 2019, Erling Haaland was able to captivate talent scouts from Manchester United. At that time, he was able to score nine goals in just one match when defending Norway U-20.

Since then, Manchester United has become very serious in pursuing Erling Haaland, especially in the January 2020 transfer market. But in the end it all foundered in the hands of Mino Raiola. Mino Raiola, who became the agent of Erling Haaland, was not willing to release his client to United and eventually moved to Dortmund.

Erling Haaland and Chance Move to Real Madrid

Before deciding to move to Dortmund, there were so many top clubs who really wanted to bring in Haaland. Not only Man United, there are also big names like Real Madrid and Bayern MUnchen who have immediately made offers to the players.

Erling Haaland now has a long-term contract with Dortmund until June 2024. However, it is not impossible to move faster. Erling Haaland Opened for Real Madrid.

“It’s always fun compiling to hear big clubs interested in you. That means you have done something right,” Erling Haaland told Four Four Two Magazine.

Dortmund bring Erling Haaland at a price of only 20 million euros. The nominal will be moved far more expensive than Dortmund that he wants to sell. That causes the market price of players releasing 19 this year now has a figure of 60 million euros.

Erling Haaland Dortmund Goal Machine

Erling Haaland immediately became Borussia Dortmund’s goal machine since joining in January 2020. In domestic matches in the Bundesliga himself, he has scored nine goals in just seven appearances.

Not only sharp in the Bundesliga, Erling Haaland also brought Dortmund to perform well in the Champions League. Haaland successfully scored a dual goal which also led Dortmund to win with a score of 2-1 from PSG at Signal Induna Park.

So far, Haaland has scored 40 goals at club level. Whether it’s together with his new club Borussia Dortmund and RB Salzburg. Haaland became a player who was so sharp in the 2019/2020 season.

Neymar Save Brazil from Defeat

The Brazilian national team failed to win in a friendly against Colombia this morning. In that match, both teams played equally strong after the match ended with a score of 2-2.

Casemiro put Brazil ahead in this match before Luis Muriel responded with two goals in the first half. Luckily at the start of the second half, Neymar managed to equalize.

The match, which was held at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium, was fierce. Both teams are both downgrading the attacking game scheme since the beginning of the match.

After the buying and selling attack occurred, Casemiro managed to open the host advantage in minute 19. Starting from Neymar’s corner, the Real Madrid midfielder managed to gore the ball perfectly into the goal Ospina. Score 1-0 for the superiority of the Brazilian national team.

Casemiro’s goal made Colombia even more encouraged. They increase the intensity of their attacks, and five minutes into the malls they get a golden opportunity after they get a penalty. Luis Muriel who was appointed as the executor successfully deceived Ederson, so the position became 1-1.

These goals make Colombia increasingly confident. As a result at minute 34 Muriel again listed his name on the scoreboard. Through a counter-attack scheme, Daniel Zapata gave Muriel a measured pass which was coolly resolved by the striker. Position changed to 2-1 for the benefits of Colombia.

Left behind by one goal, Brazil tried to continue to press Colombia, but until the first half ended, the position remained 2-1 to excel Colombia.

Second round

Left behind one goal in the first round, Brazil immediately step on the gas. They immediately launched consecutive attacks on the Colombian goal, so the Los Cofeteros defense was rather overwhelmed.

After several attempts, Brazil finally equalized in the 58th minute. Starting from Daniel Alves’s gastric pass, the ball landed at Neymar’s feet and was completed well by the attacker. Score back into a draw 2-2.

Difficult to compensate for the Brazilian game, Carlos Queiroz made two changes. He pulled out Roger Martinez and Mateus Uribe to be replaced by Luis Diaz and Jefferson Lerma.

In this second round, the tempo of the game began to decline. Both teams are still equally attacking, but not with high intensity.

Entering the 80th minute, the two coaches make changes again. In the Colombian camp, John Medina, Luis Muriel, Daniel Zapata and Juan Cuadrado were withdrawn and replaced by Orlando Berrio, Luis Orejuela, Rafael Borre and Yairo Moreno.

While in the Brazilian national team, Tite pulled out Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Richarlison to be replaced by Bruno Henrique, Lucas Paqueta and David Neres.

In the rest of the first half there was only one dangerous chance from Colombia through Luis Diaz, but that chance failed to convert into goals. Score 2-2 last until the referee blows the whistle to mark the end of the match.

After this match Brazil will hold a trial match against Peru on Wednesday (11/9) morning, while Colombia will hold a trial party against Venezuela on the same day.

Composition of Players Both Teams

Brazil (4-3-3): Ederson; Sandro, Silva, Marquinhos, Alves; Coutinho (Henrique 80 ‘), Casemiro, Arthur; Neymar, Firmino (Paqueta 82 ‘), Richarlison (Neres 84’)

Colombia (4-3-3): Ospina; Tesillo, Mina, Sanchez, Medina (Orejuela 78 ‘); Uribe (Lerma 61 ‘), Barrios, Cuadrado (Moreno 87’); Martinez (Diaz 61 ‘), Zapata (Borre 83’), Muriel (Berrio 68 ‘)

Milan, when (re) plays Pato?

The explosion of El Shaarawy , the surprise Maxi Lopez , the resurrection of Robinho , the untouchability of Ibra . In a week Milan has rediscovered its entire attack. And even from Cassano the first comforting signs arrive, if it is true that Fantantonio will be ready in mid-April, ahead of schedule. So isn’t there a small shadow on the Rossoneri’s offensive department? No it does not.
The gray area remains that of Alexandre Pato . Il Papero has just come back available after another stop due to muscle problems. With Arsenal he had just under ten minutes to recover the condition. Clear that to get back in shape the Brazilian needs to play. And here comes the problem: when can Pato do it? Tomorrow with Cesena Allegri he should trust El Shaarawy and Maxi Lopez, the saviors of the country just a week ago with Udinese . And all because there is no Ibra. The coach is already struggling to send Robinho to the bench because of a turn over. Imagine if it has room for Pato …
In the championship head-to-head with Juventus requires Allegri to always field the best or almost the best formation. You can not lose points, there is no time to recover those who are not in condition. So Pato will have to sweat to carve out space. And it would be frankly unjust to claim a place while his fellow department workers are (all) making a valuable contribution. What will Allegri do? When (re) will Pato play? The headache does not seem easy to solve. Also because without going on the pitch it will be difficult to see progress in the game of Duck …
