皇马"快马加鞭" 巴萨"停滞不前"

2006-02-20 00:00张海山,CRI

    Five straight league victories and a slump for leaders Barcelona have raised Real Madrid's hopes that the tide is finally turning in their favour.

    Real produced a storming, if ultimately futile, 4-0 victory over Real Zaragoza in the King's Cup on Tuesday after losing the first leg 6-1, and they will take that spirit into this weekend's match against Alaves.

    "We've proved that we are a competitive team and we are now more united too," Brazilian full back Roberto Carlos told Marca on Thursday. "We are a stronger and more dangerous side.

    "From now on we know what sort of attitude we've got to have. We can be up there fighting to win both the league and the Champions League and if we play like we did against Zaragoza I'm sure we'll win one of them.

    "The title race has become very interesting because Barcelona have let slip an important advantage. We are now up there in the frame and there are plenty of points to play for."

    Real, without a trophy for three years, made an awesome start at the Bernabeu, firing three goals in the first 10 minutes as they attempted to claw back the deficit.

    Roberto Carlos scored a fourth on the hour, but although they laid siege to the Zaragoza area for the rest of the game they were unable to get the all-important fifth that would have sent them through to the Cup final.

    With one eye on next week's Champions League knockout tie against Arsenal, Real, who are seven points adrift of Barca in third spot in the standings, are likely to rest several players against Alaves.

    Defenders Cicinho and Jonathan Woodgate and midfielder Zinedine Zidane are favourites to sit it out along with suspended midfielder Thomas Gravesen.

    After spending much of the season in the relegation zone Alaves have hauled themselves up to 15th place in the table having lost just once in their last five outings.

    But the Basque side were plunged into chaos on Thursday when outspoken club president Dimitry Piterman sacked coach Juan Carlos Oliva after just a month at the helm.

    Only two weeks ago Barcelona were 12 points clear at the top of the table, but successive defeats against Atletico Madrid and second-placed Valencia have cut the gap to six.

    This Saturday the champions face a tricky fixture at home to struggling Real Betis who have lost two in a row and are desperate for points to stave off the threat of relegation.

    "We have to play well against Betis because three very important points are at stake and a victory would give us a big boost ahead of the Chelsea match," Brazilian full back Silvinho told a news conference this week.

    The Catalans, who play Cheslea in the Champions League at Stamford Bridge next Wednesday, will be boosted by the return of Ronaldinho, who missed both defeats through suspension, and Portugal midfielder Deco.

    Argentine teenage sensation Lionel Messi and French winger Ludovic Giuly are both injured, while defenders Carles Puyol and Juliano Belletti are doubtful after pulling up in training.

    Buoyed by their 1-0 victory over Barca last week, Valencia can keep the pressure on the leaders by extending their unbeaten run to 13 matches when they travel to San Sebastian to play Real Sociedad on Sunday.

    依靠在联赛中的5连胜,加上目前“领头羊”巴塞罗那队近期的萎靡不振,西班牙皇家马德里队目前清楚地意识到,联赛冠军的争夺正悄悄地向有利于他们的一面发展。在西班牙国王杯中,皇马在同萨拉戈萨队次回合的交锋中,以疾风暴雨般地进攻4:0大胜对手,虽然这一比分并没有最终帮助他们摆脱被淘汰出局命运,但比赛中球员们表现出来的置之死地而后生的勇气和精神,将成为激励球队在本周末联赛中击败阿拉维斯队的宝贵财富。

    皇马巴西后卫卡洛斯16日在接受西班牙《马卡》记者采访时表示:“我们证明了皇马是一支有竞争力的球队,现在我们也比以前更加团结。”我们现在是一支更加强大和危险的球队。从现在起,我们知道自己应该以一种什么样的态度来对待比赛。我们将为联赛和欧洲冠军联赛的胜利而奋斗,只要我们像对付萨拉戈萨队时那样比赛,那么我们就一定会在上述一项大赛中取得成功。“

    皇马已经连续3年同冠军无缘,目前在西甲联赛中他们暂居第3,比“领头羊”巴塞罗那队落后7分。考虑到下周将要同英超阿森纳队进行的欧洲冠军联赛八分之一比赛,皇马在本周同阿拉维斯队的比赛中,很有可能让部分主力球员休战。而在阿拉维斯方面,本赛季大部分时间都在为保级而战的这支球队目前境况不错,在过去的5场比赛中他们只输了一场,使其在西甲的排名上升到了第15位。

    相比起皇马目前的上升态势,西甲“领头羊”巴塞罗那队近期连续输给了马德里竞技以及目前排名第2的瓦伦西亚队,使其积分优势从原先的领先第2名12分下降到了目前的6分。本周六巴萨将在主场迎战苦苦保级的皇家贝蒂斯队。皇家贝蒂斯队此前已经在联赛中连输了两场,急需拿分保级。

    巴萨巴西后卫希尔维尼奥在本周的一次记者招待会上表示:“这场同贝蒂斯队的比赛我们一定要打好,因为目前3分对我们来说非常重要。一场胜利会让我们在冠军联赛对阵切尔西之前重新获得自信。”

    在本周六联赛对阵贝蒂斯和下周迎战切尔西之前,巴塞罗那队的中场球星、巴西人罗纳尔迪尼奥将在两轮停赛之后重新复出。同时复出的还有葡萄牙中场德科。特别是罗纳尔迪尼奥的复出对于巴萨来讲至关重要,在缺少罗纳尔迪尼奥的两场比赛中,巴萨都吃了败仗。不过巴萨也有坏消息,那就是阿根廷籍前锋梅西以及法国边锋久利目前都有伤在身,而后卫普约尔和贝莱蒂在训练中也都不幸受伤,能否上场还不得而知。

    在周末西甲的另一场联赛中,目前暂列联赛第2的瓦伦西亚队显然受到了上轮1:0战胜巴塞罗那队的鼓舞,本轮他们决心在周日客场对阵皇家社会队的比赛中继续有好的表现,以便给“领头羊”巴塞罗那队以更大的压力,同时将该队近期不败战绩扩大到13场。
