Houston Dash Took The Champions Of Europe Barcelona To The Wire In Heroic Performance

Con Johan Vásquez Esto No Pasaba: Inter Golea Al Genoa En El Inicio De La Serie A

Genoa, el nuevo equipo de Johan Vásquez, fue básicamente convertido en cenizas en su visita al Inter de Milán, en el inicio de la Serie A 2021-22. El cuadro rossoblú cayó 4-0 ante el actual campeón de la liga, en un partido en el que mostró serios problemas defensivos.

¿Dónde estaba Vásquez? Como el ex Pumas llegó hace menos de 10 días, el técnico Davide Ballardi decidió no convocarlo, mientras se adapta al equipo. Sin embargo, en vista de la goleada sufrida no sería raro que apure su puesta en forma para tenerlo disponible en la próxima jornada.

Los Tigres del Miguel Herrera sumaron su segunda victoria consecutiva en la Liga MX. El cuadro felino ganó 3-0 al Mazatlán, en un resultado que estadísticamente parece un paseo, pero que terminó siendo bastante duro y amargo.

El Futuro De Vucetich En Chivas Es Un Camino Sin Salida

El proceso de Víctor Manuel Vucetich al mando de Chivas parece haber llegado a un camino sin salida.

La contundente derrota sufrida ante León (0-3) dejó en evidencia que el equipo necesita ideas frescas, nuevas respuestas a los problemas que plantea cada partido o al menos descomprimir el ambiente, limpiar el aire. Y en la crueldad del fútbol, siempre el primero que paga los platos rotos es el entrenador.
