So much FC Barcelona like Real Madrid, will find in the lawn, this time, without being, any of the two, a big dominant of the panorama football to international level
Although a Barça-Madrid always will wake up, in all the fans to the football, some cosquillas special; this year, we have to assume, with melancholy, that the big Classical does not represent the same that does some years. In other occasions, could define this meeting like the crossing of the two better teams of the world; alas, no longer we can say the same.
It is evident that, neither FC Barcelona neither Real Madrid are dominant teams to European level, right now. The football has kept growing far of Spain and, certainly, to day of today, the big international leagues are stronger that LaLiga Santander, especially the Premier League. Not recognising the evident step backwards of the Spanish football is not wanting to see the reality.
For evidenciarlo, simply is necessary to observe the starts of the domestic competitions of the five big leagues. In the beginning of these competitions, the teams of the Premier, SerieA, Tie1 and Bundesliga have increased his ratio of goals by party, whereas LaLiga, is the only that has gone down his quota scorer during this course, especially by the paper of Barça and Madrid.
The start in Champions League has not been much more favourable for the Spanish teams. The Real Madrid remained in ridiculous losing, home, in front of the Shakhtar Donetsk, by 2-3. The Athletic of Madrid did not achieve to annotate neither an alone goal in front of the Bayern of Munich, that goleó by 4-0. Only the FC Barcelona premièred with a triumph in the first European day and the Seville, with a good meeting, achieved a tie in front of Chelsea.
LaLiga Santander no longer is what was
It is not simply a thing of numbers, the Spanish football no longer is what was does four or five years, and this is innegable. Another symptom of the bajón of the deport king in our country is the escape of talents. Previously, the best players wanted to play in Spain; nowadays, Lionel Messi is the only big talent that is still in LaLiga, and no by taste, precisely.
To the bochornosa sportive crisis, now is necessary to add him the economic problems that has suffered the competition after the pandemia caused by the coronavirus. Nevertheless, the management of the distribution of money in LaLiga already was little convincente, before the confinement. The big difference of income that exists between the first qualifiers and the recently risen is an example of this.
