247  Forum / Sports / Roberto Di Matteo Confirms David Luiz's Absence on: 18-04-2012 02:15 PM
Chelsea's interim manager Roberto Di Matteo has confirmed that David Luiz will miss tomorrow's Champions League tie against Barcelona.

The defender suffered a muscular injury during Sunday's FA Cup semi-final victory over Tottenham Hotspur.

As a result, Di Matteo expects to be without the Brazilian for at least two weeks.

"David Luiz is a big loss," Di Matteo told reporters. "We hope to get him back in two weeks and hopefully he can be ready for the end of the season."

Gary Cahill is expected to start at Stamford Bridge in Luiz's absence.

249  Forum / European Leagues (EPL, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga - EU leagues) / EL CLASSICO: Barcelona Vs Real Madrid on: 18-04-2012 02:06 PM



The biggest rivalry in world soccer will be revisited again on Saturday when Real Madrid travels to Nou Camp in Barcelona to face the Catalans in what comes down to a must-win for the home team, which needs to try to make up some valuable ground in the dwindling La Liga season.

Real Madrid (27-4-2) currently sits four points (85-81) above Barcelona (25-6-2) on top of the Spanish Primera League heading into this heated match. With a win, Real Madrid can almost ice the league title by going seven points up on their rivals with just four games remaining after this must-see match.

The game sits in a precarious spot on the calendar for both teams, sandwiched between Legs 1 and 2 of the two clubs’ UEFA Champions League semifinal matches against Bayern Munich (Real Madrid) and Chelsea (Barcelona).

Los Blancos fell to Bayern Munich, 2-1, in Germany on a late goal (90") by Mario Gomez on Tuesday, while Barcelona is currently in West London awaiting its Wednesday UEFA CL semifinal Leg 1 tie with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge (FX, 2:45 pm EDT/11:45 am PDT).

Saturday’s match between the two clubs, which I presently have ranked No. 1 and No. 2 both in Europe along with the entire Milky Way galaxy, should be a high-scoring affair. Cristiano Ronaldo and Real Madrid have scored more goals (107 goals for, 29 against) than anyone anywhere, while Lionel Messi and Barcelona (96 goals for, 24 against) have been known to put a ball or two in the back of the net from time to time.

The Catalans have a couple of things going for them in this battle where I’m sitting. At home at Nou Camp, Barcelona is undefeated (15-1-0), outscoring its foes an incredible 64-8 in the process. On the road, Real Madrid is an impressive 13-2-1 (44 goals for, 11 against) in La Liga, but beating Barça is a different beast.

A motivational factor for the Blaugrana is the reality that they are just four points behind Real Madrid in the league table and, with a victory on its home turf, can cut that lead to a slim one point (85-84) with only four games remaining.

With players like Messi, Cesc Fàbregas, Xavi, Andrés Iniesta, Dani Alves, Gerard Piqué, Carles Puyol and Víctor Valdés, the defending UEFA CL champs Barcelona can beat anyone almost anywhere and are certainly one of the best teams in soccer (fútbol) history.

As if all that wasn’t enough to side with the home team in this game on Saturday, consider Barcelona’s 5-2-1 record against Real Madrid in the last eight meetings, where it has outscored the Whites—who haven’t scored more than two goals in any of those matches—by a healthy 19-9 total in La Liga, Copa del Rey and Spanish Super Cup play.

So for three-time defending Spanish Super Cup champions Barcelona to have any chance of winning La Liga, the Copa del Rey title (vs. Atletico Bilbao May 25 in Madrid) and the UEFA CL crown (May 19 in Munich), it needs to win this match against Real Madrid and close the league gap to one point.

Although Los Blancos, under Jose Mourinho, are as good as they have been in some time, The Special One hasn’t been so special against the Catalans. Until Real Madrid can knock off Barça, manager Pep Guardiola will retain all bragging rights.

Both Gonzalo Higuain and Kaká weren’t in Real Madrid’s starting XI versus Bayern Munich on Tuesday, so they should be rested and possibly start in this edition of El Clasico. Barcelona won this season’s first El Clasico, 3-1 at Santiago Bernabéu.

In the end, Barcelona is that gnat Real Madrid can’t kill and until Mourinho’s crew can prove they can beat their Spanish rivals, I will have to side with Barcelona.

251  Forum / Sports / Reds Getting Stronger - Suarez on: 18-04-2012 01:32 PM
- Liverpool striker Luis Suarez believes the Reds will emerge a stronger team for all their recent difficulties.

Kenny Dalglish's men emerged from a dismal run of six defeats in seven Barclays Premier League games with a last-gasp win at Blackburn last week.
They then followed that up by claiming a place in the FA Cup final with victory over arch-rivals Everton at Wembley. Uruguay forward Suarez told LFC Weekly: "All clubs, teams and players go through good runs and bad runs. That is football.
"No team has success after success. Even the very best of all time have bad periods, but it is how they react that defines them.
"You are bound to enjoy picking up trophies and medals, of course you are. But you learn most about one another during a bad patch, you learn how to stick together even more.
"If you react in the right way and support each other, adversity can be a good thing in the long run because you become stronger."

253  Forum / Sports / Cristiano Ronaldo's boots stolen before Bayern semi-final on: 18-04-2012 01:26 PM
- The Portuguese star's shirt was also nicked prior to kick-off at the Allianz Arena, while Mesut Ozil and Karim Benzema were also targeted by the mystery thieves.

Three Real Madrid players had their preparations for Tuesday's Champions League semi-final first-leg clash at Bayern Munich disrupted in bizarre fashion as their boots and kits were stolen in the build-up to the game.

According to Marca, six pairs of boots and some shirts were stolen from Madrid's dressing room at the Allianz Arena, despite the presence of security cameras.

Cristiano Ronaldo had three pairs of his cleats stolen, while the rest reportedly belonged to Mesut Ozil and Karim Benzema.

It was an inauspicious beginning to the evening for the Spaniards, as they went on to lose the match 2-1 courtesy of a last-minute winner from Mario Gomez.

"The stealing of Cristiano's shoes is a shame, it's impossible something like that could happen at the Bernabeu," Mourinho fumed in his post-match press conference.

Marca reports that Bayern have not offered any explanation for the theft, while Real have already lodged a complaint to Uefa over the incident.
254  Forum / Sports / Can Chelsea Rescue Their Season? on: 18-04-2012 01:23 PM
It’s been 10 years since Chelsea finished outside the top four, 10 years since they have failed to secure their position among Europe’s elite. This season could be that season but a recent resurgence under Roberto Di Matteo has seen them close the gap on their London rivals. Many things have been said and written on Andre Villas Boas and his shortcomings, I will not dwell on his reign nor jump to his defence. However, the fact is that upon his resignation he left Chelsea in fifth place, they now lie in fifth place. Maybe, just maybe, their crisis was overstated.

In their interim manager, this Chelsea side have a man who knows the club and knows the team, they feel comfortable with this man, but ultimately they play for themselves, not Di Matteo. Now playing with the shackles well and truly off, Chelsea find themselves in a Champions League semi-final, and FA Cup final and only two points off Tottenham who sit fourth in the league. Not bad going for a club in crisis.

Just think about that for a minute. Chelsea, a side so gleefully written off by pundits and fans alike (they aren’t the most likeable club after all) are in contention to be thought of as one of the strongest teams in Europe. This could be their year, as Liverpool showed in 2005, a good run in the Champions League can often mean making sacrifices on the domestic front. Though you would have to call Chelsea as favourites in the FA Cup final with Liverpool too. John Terry could yet lift silverware this season, despite the ‘disastrous’ season he has had.

Defeat at the hands of City in March has been a springboard for Chelsea’s form in all competitions, which since then, has looked like this:


With the way this Chelsea side are motivated by glory, in the Champions League in particular, you cannot imagine this run of form waning. Three wins away from being European champions, the likes of Drogba, Lampard and Terry must smell blood.

One or two things stand in their way of course. Barcelona being one of them, a Barcelona team that many would have thought (at the start of the season) who destroy the high line of Chelsea. However, now they have settled I cannot see Chelsea giving Barcelona anything easily. This could be the season that Chelsea picked themselves up, dusted themselves down and went all the way. All on their own.
255  Forum / Sports / Barcelona's Guardiola dismisses Chelsea link as pure 'fantasy' on: 18-04-2012 01:19 PM
- The 41-year-old coach, who has led the Catalans to 13 titles since taking charge at Camp Nou in 2008, is out of contract in the summer and has been linked with the Blues.

The former Spain international's current contract with the Catalans expires at the end of the season and he has been linked with a switch to Stamford Bridge.

However, Guardiola, speaking ahead of the first leg of the Blaugrana's Champions League semi-final with Chelsea, felt it disrespectful to discuss the issue given caretaker coach Roberto Di Matteo has brought about an impressive upturn in the Blues' fortunes since replacing Andre Villas-Boas at the helm last month.

"It is fantasy, it's hypothetical," Guardiola told reporters at a press conference on Tuesday. "I am coach of Barcelona now and they [Chelsea] have a good manager [Roberto di Matteo] who is getting unbelievable results.

"It's not useful for Chelsea or for Barcelona to talk about that. There is no time to talk about that."

Unsurprisingly, Guardiola was also reluctant to address the ongoing speculation surrounding his future at Camp Nou.

"I just want to focus on the game," the former Barcelona B team boss declared. "This is a dream come true, to be here ahead of this great game.

"I just want to make sure my players are focused on the game and can enjoy playing matches like that."

After being allowed to turn his attention to the game at Stamford Bridge, Guardiola disputed the belief that Chelsea will be gunning for revenge on Wednesday night in light of their controversial exit at the hands of the Blaugrana at the same stage of the competition three years ago.

An injury-time equaliser from Andres Iniesta denied the Blues a place in the 2009 tournament decider on the away goals rule, but the Catalans' coach does not feel that Di Matteo's men will be using that experience as an extra source of motivation in Wednesday night's first-leg clash at Stamford Bridge.

"I do not think Chelsea are playing for revenge, but to be in the final," he reasoned. "What you have lost in football, is lost.

"Chelsea have spirit and the same core team from 2009 and this generation of footballers [that they have] is unique. It's admirable.

"And it will be more complicated this time around. We're the reigning champions now and a good team want to beat us. In addition, few teams can execute counterattacks [like Chelsea]."

Guardiola also insisted that there was no chance of his players being distracted from the task at hand, even though the hype is already building back in Catalunya ahead of this weekend's crucial Clasico clash with La Liga leaders Real Madrid.

"We're playing against one of the best teams in Europe [in Chelsea] and we have to focus on this match," the 41-year-old coach declared. "After tomorrow, we can think about Saturday."

Barcelona's eagerly-awaited meeting with Chelsea kicks off in London at 20.45CET.
