Lewandowski, like good wine.In Europe, many veteran stars are giving almost their best. Thus, for example, Lewandowski, 32 years old, had 39 goals before the break, one less than the total he got last season at a Bayern where he continues to accompany him in every game Neuer in the starting eleven. The news about the search for his successor or his renewal happen, but the Bayern captain has played it all this season also at 34 years old. The Pole, meanwhile, cannot be aging better. Vardy’s late hatching that doesn’t stop, like Di María’s nerve.In England, a late talent like Vardy’s continues to stand out. Until the emergence of the coronavirus, at 33, he led a Leicester again in Champions League positions. 19 goals in the championship added and voracity intact. Like Di Maria in France. The Fideo remains firm and already with an age. 32 met impressive numbers at PSG in February. 10 goals and 18 assists on goal contemplate him this season. In France, PSG remains intractable in the championship and only, from afar, the historic Marseille competes for second place again led by Payet (33 years old). Saint-Pierre’s version of talent is aging divinely in the Velodrome. 12 goals and six assists plus the feeling that something is going to happen when the ball passes him. Papu and Ilicic, uncovering the jar of essences in Bergamo.There are other examples veteran very well carried out in Italy, Valencia suffered them. others who seem to have gathered knowledge to display at the end of their career. Bergamo’s Papu Gómez and Ilicic, both from 88, both almost at the best level of their careers. The Argentine signed 7 goals and 12 assists until the break, while the Slovenian, who was Calcio’s most decisive player last season, had 20 goals and five goal passes. Both live a second youth. Benzema’s leadership.If Messi leads the statistics for Barcelona, at Real Madrid, another of the generation of ’87 such as Benzema is the one who pulls the white car with 19 goals and 9 assists. Last year he finished with 30 and 9, respectively, also as the most prolific of the team. Behind, in defense, Ramos, at 33, is also a basic piece, he refuses to give up prominence and continues to play a key role in Real Madrid. In Spain they are not the only cases. In less powerful teams, for example, the examples of Aspas and Jesús Navas are clear. The captain of Sevilla is more than essential at 34 years old. He has only rested this season in the Europa League and one match in the Cup. Celta maintains a significant dependence on Aspas, another from the ’87 generation. Footballers’ careers lengthen, but not in a bad way. The stars are eternal. The evolution of work systems, the preparation in detail, the desire to transcend to the end and the competitive mindset have multiplied today the cases of stars that continue to shine at the highest level well into the 30s. They resist giving up their thrones . Absolute efficiency still at the highest level. And they are not few. They have taken care of themselves, they still collect huge salaries, and they decide. They keep doing it. This season there are great examples, even alongside others who have saved the best for their second youth.Messi’s nuances.Someone will discuss the nuances of brilliance of Messi at 32 years old, close to 33, but with 24 goals and 16 assists, he leads an entire Barcelona without discussion. As much as Barcelona has spent a fortune on Griezmann, as before in Dembélé or young prodigy children like Ansu Fati are pointing, everything continues to orbit, and quite well, around the Argentine’s left-hander Last season he signed it with 51 goals and 19 assists. Barcelona continues to depend on him. It is not the only case of an incombustible veteran on that team. The loss of Luis Suárez, 33, has been like a cataclysm for Barcelona, who had to go to the market to alleviate it. O Piqué, with its ups and downs, remains irreplaceable at his already 33 years. The central defender is the third player who has played the most minutes in Barcelona this season, behind Ter Stegen and Griezmann. The voracity of Cristiano, the new Bonucci or a vital Handanovic for the resurrected Inter.Italy is a country of office, where Juventus has danced more than ever to the tune that Cristiano marked. At 35, he was on a streak until the break with 23 goals, 21 in the league where he sought to shorten the pace with a cast Immobile, who with 30 led the Golden Boot classification thanks to his 27 goals. That ahead, but in the rear, Bonucci seems so important in Juve. The central came from crashing in Milan and a discreet last year at Juve. Together with Sarri he has recovered his best level with about 33 years. That in Turin, but in Milan there is another very true that in the shade that gave support to Inter. There is a lot of talk about the couple formed by Lukaku and Lautaro, but it is true that Inter lost their heads when Handanovic was injured. The Slovenian goalkeeper and captain of the Lombard team had a season, one more, at his 35 years. Something similar happens in Lazio, where Immobile or Luis Alberto share honors, but specialists point to Acerbi, at 32 years old, like the cornerstone on which Inzaghi’s machine is founded. The central defender is saving the best for the end of his career.
@Dgordic ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>The Antic mural in Uzice.@Dgordic The tributes to Radomir Antic are already being prepared, although the circumstances do that they cannot be carried out for some time. Atlético will do them and they will also do them in Serbia.

Of these three applicants that Zidane manages to oxygenate Casemiro, immovable for the technician, Kanté is the one who, right now, can go the ‘double’ more than the Brazilian. The statistics of both are almost a trace. And even the Chelsea player, who is usually more accompanied than the Brazilian, improves in some ways the Real Madrid player.Kanté, in a season in which injuries have slightly eroded that image of an indestructible player, he recovers in the Premier the same as Casemiro in LaLiga (one ball every 10 minutes), his losses are similar (one every 7 minutes of the Brazilian for one every 6 of the French), they average the same actions per game (1.2), his pass success rate is identical (83%) and they have the same goals (3). But there are pulses that decant to one side or the other. Casemiro is more powerful in the air game (he clears a ball every 79 ‘; Kanté does it every 197’), assists more (two goal passes by none of the Frenchman) and dares more (averages a shot every 65 ‘; French takes 21 more minutes). However, Kanté generates more chances (one every 57 ‘against the Brazilian’s 222’ average) and is more active in the dangerous zone (one action every 43 ‘in the rival area; Casemiro’s average is 76’ …) .Statistics support Kanté against Camavinga and Soumaré, whose numbers are further away from Casemiro’s, especially the Lille player. But There are some aspects in which Camavinga, on pole at the Bernabéu offices, ‘sweeps’ the Chelsea midfielder. One is in the ground level entrances to steal the ball, what the English call ‘tackles’. There, the one from Rennes is a specialist. Average one every 20 ’; Kanté takes 16 more minutes. Another is the one of success in the pass. Camavinga has uncovered himself as a player who chooses quickly and well (he has an extraordinary positioning and oriented control). If you see that there is no advance option, the pass is secured. It has an 87% effectiveness (Soumaré inflates the chest in this statistic: 89%). Below you can see the complete comparison.France Football: Kanté, not less than € 70MNevertheless, Although the numbers point to Kanté as Casemiro’s best ‘twin ‘, Real Madrid’s first choice is Eduardo Camavinga. It is true that Chelsea guarantee immediate performance, it is more than done to the rigors of the elite, but his age (29 years), his price (France Football publishes that the London club will not let him go for less than 70 million) and that his physique begins to send signals, they make the fingers of the white club point to the Franco-Angolan. For DNI (17 years), for projection, for physical power and technical qualities. CI assure that he is non-negotiable and he is seen in Camavinga as the perfect player to cook alongside the Brazilian, learning from his trade when the time comes for relief. Something like Madrid did, advised by Zidane, with Varane when Pepe was on the roster. Of course, the operation is warned that it will be more expensive. Varane cost 10 million. It is said that for Camavinga, Rennes, who wants to keep him one more year, would ask for around 50 million … FOULS COMMITTED64 (every 34 ‘)37 (every 37 ‘)48 (every 44 ‘)16 (every 76 ‘) SCORED GOALS3 (one every 740 ‘)3 (every 740 ‘)1 (each 2,112)0
