spain collapses in Europe. Only Real Madrid y Sevilla are still alive when we enter the decisive final leg of the European tournaments, in the Champions, Europa y Conference League in the quarterfinals of both competitions, among the eight best teams in both tournaments. Neither Real Sociedad in Betis They managed to pass in the round of 16, losing to Roma y Manchester United, respectively, in the Europa League. He Villarreal He hit it in the Conference against the Anderlecht. Three more falling. Of the seven teams that qualified, only two remain.
The Liga chaired by Javier Tebas not only bleeds to an economic level, no, it also does so at a sporting level. All that remains is to take a look at the classification of the domestic tournament to see big clubs like Valencia y Sevilla in low places, flirting with relegation. In Europe the simile is similar and not only is this season an example, but also the previous one.
He Barça is the best example of all. The culé team, since they won their last trophy, has only been falling, subtracting merits, adding disappointments in Europe. Painful eliminations in the KO matches gave way to these last two seasons in which they did not make it out of the group stage and had to be content with the Europa Leaguea tournament where they have also been eliminated at the hands of Manchester Unitedin this course at the first exchange.
He Atlético of Madrid He has been in the Champions League for several seasons in which his classification is compromised, in which his competitive level is reduced. This course hit bottom, remaining in fourth position, down from Europe. Another sign that Spanish football, little by little, loses muscle, loses potential and presence, and therefore gives way to other countries that, I refer to the data and statistics, are doing things better.
He Sevillawhich is the only club that is still alive in the Europa League, was also removed from the Champions League, occupying the third position and relieved to the second competition, where it is precisely the king of kings, the club with the most titles. Despite losing in Turkey against Fenerbahceachieved the pass after 2-0 at home.
To the Real society and the Betis they touched two of the coconuts of the raffle, the Roma of José Mourinho and the manchester United that came from knocking down the Barça. The Italians won 2-0 at home and the second leg at Anoeta, despite the barrage of chances from the txuri-urdin, was 0-0. He Betis of Pellegrini They had a worse time, losing 4-1 at Old Trafford and losing at home 0-1, leaving the Red Devils as a Spanish black beast this season. He Villarreal of bounce setien he could not eliminate Belgian Anderlecht either.
He Real Madrid, the current champion of the Champions League, is the only one who is still alive in the highest competition. The whites not only won 5-1 at Anfield, but also dominated at the Santiago Bernabéu, where they were able to draw much more blood against Liverpool than the 1-0 with which they sealed their pass to the quarterfinals. The whites continue to be the club that supports Spain in Europe, not only because of their forcefulness in recent years and their multiple titles, but because they continue to prevent the failure of the rest from tarnishing Spanish football even more.
