Buffarini: “Boca no está jugando bien”

Buffarini habló del nivel del equipo.

El lateral habló del rendimiento del equipo y fue sincero en su análisis. ¿Qué opinan?

Boca sigue ganando y continúa liderando en la Superliga. En el debe del equipo no están los resultados, pero quizás sí el juego.

Sobre el rendimiento del conjunto azul y oro, Julio Buffarini se animó a opinar en Radio Mitre y fue sincero en la autocrítica:

Coincido con que Boca no está jugando bien. Contra Colón encontramos el gol rápido, pero ellos manejaron la pelota. Después, contra Temperley, no se jugó bien y somos conscientes. Tuviéramos que haber hecho un buen partido por nuestra jerarquía”.

“Buffa” reconoció que la falta de algunos referentes pesa, pero que las metas que se puso el plantel siguen firmes:

Está costando la generación, no tanto la recuperación. Tanto Pablo Pérez como Gago, que están lesionados, son los que le dan más juego al equipo. El primer objetivo es la final contra River y después el torneo y la Libertadores”.

Guiño de Falcioni

Falcioni guarda a los titulares.

La decisión del exDT de Boca antes del partido con Banfield. ¿Qué opinará Guillermo?

Está claro que las intenciones de Julio César Falcioni no son ayudar a Boca. Pero, en su afán por apostar fuerte con Banfield, quizás le haga las cosas más fáciles al Xeneize. O no.

Lo cierto es que, luego del partido de ida en el repechaje para entrar a la Copa Libertadores, “El Emperador” decidió guardar a los titulares para el juego de vuelta. Así, se verá un equipo con suplentes ante Boca.

Pero, claro, los partidos hay que jugarlos. El Xeneize tendrá otro duro duelo en una cancha difícil, buscando seguir con tranquilidad en la Superliga.

La probable formación:

Facundo Altamirano; Emanuel Coronel, Alexis Maldonado, Alexis Sosa; Claudio Bravo, Nicolás Linares; Franco Colela, Luciano Gómez o Claudio Villagra, Juan Alvarez, Martín Lucero; y Julián Carranza.

Ronaldo's Madrid 100: most goals for one #UCL club

Cristiano Ronaldo this week became the first player to score 100 goals for a single club in the UEFA Champions League – only ten in total have managed 30 or more.

Ronaldo’s penalty equaliser against Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday took him to 100 for Real Madrid, with his 101st strike arriving in the second half. With those two goals, he is up to 116 in the UEFA Champions League, 15 of them for Manchester United before his Madrid move.

Lionel Messi, on 97 goals ahead of Tuesday’s trip to Chelsea, is a Barcelona hat-trick away from emulating Ronaldo’s centuries: both for one club and overall in the UEFA Champions League. The only other player to score 50 for one club was the first man to pass a half-century in the competition: Raúl González, with 66 goals for Madrid.

Further down the list, and just one goal shy of Alessandro del Piero’s 42 for Juventus, Karim Benzema is a third Madrid player in the top five, one clear of Thomas Müller from Bayern München. Ronaldo, Messi, Benzema and Müller are the only players in the top ten still with those listed clubs (and indeed still in this season’s competition). Not far behind, Sergio Agüero has 29 for Manchester City and Robert Lewandowski 28 for Bayern.

Milan and Arsenal cruise, tough night for Napoli

AC Milan, Arsenal Atlético Madrid and Marseille will feel they have one foot in the round of 16 after kicking off their ties with wins by three-goal margins, and things are looking pretty healthy for Athletic Club too after 37-year-old Aritz Aduriz struck twice in a 3-1 success at Spartak Moskva. Dortmund have more work to do after striking late to earn a 3-2 win against Atalanta in Germany while Napoli are in trouble following a 3-1 home loss to Leipzig. Final hosts Lyon have the edge in their tie following a 3-1 home success against Villarreal.

Leipzig v Napoli background

In the only round of 32 tie featuring two teams that played UEFA Champions League football during the autumn, European debutants Leipzig appear to have a decisive edge over Napoli after claiming an impressive 3-1 away win in southern Italy.

• The Italian side, who finished third in their UEFA Champions League group behind Manchester City and Shakhtar Donetsk, are competing in the UEFA Europa League’s round of 32 for the sixth time in eight seasons. Their German opponents, denied further progress in the UEFA Champions League by Beşiktaş and Porto, are taking part in the competition for the first time; this is their first knockout tie in UEFA competition.

Previous meetings
• A Napoli side missing several first-choice players took the lead at the Stadio San Paolo with a 52nd-minute strike from midfielder Adam Ounas but Leipzig stormed back to score three goals in the final half-hour, a double from Timo Werner sandwiching a first European goal for Bruma.

• Napoli had never won away to German opposition in eight matches (D3 L5), losing four in a row until their most recent engagement, when they overcame Wolfsburg 4-1 in the first leg of the 2014/15 UEFA Europa League quarter-final to set up a 6-3 aggregate triumph.

• The only other season in which the Partenopei travelled to Germany and avoided defeat was their 1988/89 UEFA Cup-winning campaign, when they played three matches and drew all of them – against East German side Lokomotive Leipzig (1-1), Bayern München (2-2) and, in the second leg of the final, Stuttgart (3-3).

Highlights: Napoli 1-3 Leipzig

Form guide
• Leipzig have an even balance of one win, one draw and one defeat in European home fixtures and are yet to keep a clean sheet in front of their own fans, conceding five goals in those three fixtures.

• Napoli have lost four of their last five away encounters in Europe, including 2-1 defeats in all three of their UEFA Champions League group games this season. Furthermore, they have won just twice on the road in nine UEFA Europa League knockout ties (D2 L5).

• Three of Napoli’s five previous UEFA Europa League round of 32 ties have resulted in elimination, and in each case they lost the away leg, against Villarreal twice (1-2 in 2010/11 and 0-1 in 2015/16) and Viktoria Plzeň (0-2) in 2012/13.

• Conversely, on the two occasions that the Serie A side have passed beyond the round of 32, they avoided defeat on the road, drawing 0-0 against Swansea in 2013/14 (before winning 3-1 on aggregate) and beating Trabzonspor 4-0 (5-0 on aggregate) in 2014/15, when they progressed all the way to the semi-finals.

• Leipzig gained automatic entry into the 2017/18 UEFA Champions League after finishing runners-up to Bundesliga champions Bayern at the end of their debut season in Germany’s top flight. They are the only club ever to have played their first European match in the UEFA Champions League group stage.

• Third in Serie A last term, Napoli qualified for this season’s UEFA Champions League play-offs, where they disposed of Nice 4-0 on aggregate, winning both legs 2-0.

• Napoli have lost all five European ties in which they have been defeated at home in the first leg, most recently in the 2012/13 UEFA Europa League round of 32, when Plzeň supplemented a 3-0 victory in Italy with a 2-0 win in the Czech Republic.

Links and trivia
• Leipzig goalkeeper Péter Gulácsi was at Liverpool when Napoli’s Pepe Reina was the Reds’ first choice between the posts in 2008/09; Gulácsi spent the second half of that campaign on loan at Hereford United.

• Reina played three games in the Bundesliga with Bayern in 2014/15.

• Leipzig schemer Emil Forsberg played 90 minutes in both games as Sweden eliminated Italy from the 2018 FIFA World Cup in the qualifying play-offs. He faced substitute Lorenzo Insigne in the 1-0 win in Sweden and Jorginho in the 0-0 draw in Milan.

• Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik played six Bundesliga games (all as a substitute) with Bayer Leverkusen in 2012/13 and 18 games (scoring two goals) on loan at Augsburg the following season.

• No German or Italian club has ever reached a UEFA Europa League final. Napoli are one of three Serie A sides to have made the semi-finals (with Juventus and Fiorentina), while no Bundesliga club has reached the last four since Hamburg in the competition’s inaugural 2009/10 season.

• Napoli are one of four clubs from Italy in the round of 32 – the same number as Russia and Spain. There were five Italian clubs present at this juncture in the 2014/15 UEFA Europa League – a competition record.

Penalty shoot-outs
• Leipzig have yet to feature in a UEFA penalty shoot-out.

• Napoli’s record in UEFA penalty shoot-outs is W1 L2:
3-4 v Toulouse, 1986/87 UEFA Cup first round
4-3 v Sporting CP, 1989/90 UEFA Cup first round
3-5 v Spartak Moskva, 1990/91 European Champion Clubs’ Cup second round

The coaches
• Former Austrian international striker Ralph Hasenhüttl was appointed as RB Leipzig coach following their promotion to the Bundesliga in 2016, and he hit the ground running, remaining unbeaten in his first 13 league games en route to guiding the club to a runners-up spot in their debut top-flight campaign. His previous coaching posts have all been in Germany – at Unterhaching, Aalen and Ingolstadt.

• Napoli boss since 2015, when he replaced Rafael Benítez, Maurizio Sarri is widely considered to be one of Europe’s most progressive coaches. He paid his dues in Italy’s lower leagues with a multitude of clubs before getting his big break at Empoli, whom he steered into Serie A. His first two seasons in Naples have brought top-three finishes.

Cristiano Ronaldo's best and worst opponents

Paris Saint-Germain were one of the few European opponents Cristiano Ronaldo had failed to score against until his UEFA Champions League double on Wednesday.

That 3-1 win means the 119-goal all-time UEFA club competition top scorer has now struck against more than two thirds of the 50 teams he has faced in Europe. Which sices has Ronaldo found the hardest – or easiest – opponents to break down?

• With 119 goals in 13,223 minutes of UEFA club competition football, Ronaldo scores at an average rate of a goal every 111 minutes and 7 seconds. However, that rate is considerably higher with Real Madrid (83min 14s per goal) than it was with Sporting CP and Manchester United (290min 30s per goal).

<!–[if IE 9]><![endif]–>Watch all of Cristiano Ronaldo's European goals

Watch all of Cristiano Ronaldo’s European goals

• Ronaldo has played against 50 teams in UEFA competition, scoring against 34. As a Madrid player, he has faced 32 sides in Europe, with only four now having managed to stop him scoring: Barcelona, Dinamo Zagreb, Legia Warszawa and Napoli.

• Barcelona have proved the toughest European nut to crack for Ronaldo: he has yet to score in 450 minutes against Madrid’s Liga rivals – 270 with United and 180 with the Merengues.

<!–[if IE 9]><![endif]–>Watch Real Madrid score eight against Malmö

Watch Real Madrid score eight against Malmö

• The team he has found it easiest to breach are Malmö, with his six goals across 180 UEFA Champions League minutes against the Swedish club constituting a strike every 30 minutes.

• The side Ronaldo has encountered most in Europe are Lyon, whom he has met ten times – 884 minutes in total – scoring four goals.

• Ronaldo has struck nine times against Bayern München – more goals than he has mustered against any other continental opposition. These goals have come in six games, at an average of one every 64 minutes and 47 seconds.

• Of Europe’s big five footballing nations, Ronaldo has found German club defences most porous, averaging well over a goal a game – 26 strikes in 22 matches. However, while he nets plenty in the Liga, he has struggled with Spanish rearguards in Europe, scoring a goal only every 238 minutes against domestic opponents in UEFA competion.

• He may prefer not to move to Scotland: Ronaldo is yet to score in 352 minutes of UEFA club action against Scottish sides, by far the longest period that clubs from any country have been able to resist him.
