The three possible rivals of the Barça in semifinals of Glass of Rey
Without place to doubts, are in front of the duel of the morbo: a possible Classical in semifinals. It is true that the Real Madrid is not of the all well in the present season and that does not achieve to reach the regularity wished in his game, but the reality is the one who is: the whites are alive in all the competitions and can be a fearsome rival in an eliminatory.
As always, the starts of year give him well to the white group, that seems to be increasingly fine of the hand of his two big leaders in attack: Karim Benzema and Vinícius Junior. They are the odd couple, but are offering a lot of illusions to the madridismo lately thanks to an entente in which the French puts the leadership and the Brazilian the joy.
The Real Madrid is, without place to doubts, the most dangerous rival of the possible opponents in semifinals, already was by his pride or by the quality of some players that seem almost unbeatable in eliminatory and finals. The arrival of Santiago Solari has not improved the game, but yes seems to have woken up to a team that, to base of results, begins to situate like applicant to everything.
Valencia is not signing a season to the height of the past in LaLiga Santander 2018-19, but showed in the quarter-finals of the Glass of the King that the harp of this team does not have end. The 'che' achieved to trace back an eliminatory that had lost in the injury time of the second part of the party of turn in front of the Getafe.
The gesta historical of the group valencianista wine given by three goals of Rodrigo Moreno that, without place to doubts, is the most dangerous player of this team. Also it is necessary to take into account to the old policeman formed by the Dani Parejo, Carlos Soler and company, in addition to Rubén Nephew, a forward of the that expects a lot after attaining his traspaso pertinent of the Sportive Alavés.
With Marcelino García Toral to the control, Valencia is not attaining the results expected, generated by the pertinent expectations of the past season. Nevertheless, there has been an important mejoría that the team of Mestalla expects to confirm in the Glass of Rey, that is the only title that virtually remains them for litigating.
The Real Betis can seem the most affordable rival of the three, but the reality is distinct. The Andalusian team, of the hand of Quique Setién, has developed a system of game that offers to the verdiblancos the command of the possession and the criterion to adapt to any rival, was of the entity that was.
In fact, the FC Barcelona already suffered it in his meats and, in case it was little, in the Camp Nou. The Real Betis achieved to win in the coliseo Barcelona renouncing to the balloon but showing a distinct register and the same of effective: the contragolpes. The quality of midfield players like Channels or Celso give advantage to attackers faster that take advantage of of his vision of game.
In case it was little, in the Real Betis have very in account that have an opportunity of gold to carry the Glass of the King in his own house, since the final of the day 25 May will play in Benito Villamarín. By all this, the team sevillano has to be very take# into account and not being infravalorado in any moment.
