Masip ugly the goal made between Guardiola and Míchel

Jordi Masip has been basic in the two previous seasons. He has saved many points for Real Valladolid, but this Sunday he gave one to Real Sociedad, ruining a great first half pucelana culminated with a goal made by Guardiola and certified by Míchel. The tie was achieved by Roberto López from 35 meters.

And is that Real Valladolid and Real Sociedad started with rhythm, with a lot of play on the wings, with occasions. If the Donostiarras pushed with Barranetxea and Portu on their respective sides, the locals tried, above all, on the left with Waldo. The clearest occasions arrived there. After a first visitor attempt at Portu's boots, the locals countered with shots from Guardiola, Nacho and Waldo. The winger made Remiro intervene in a center kick and the winger crashed the ball into the post.

The pucelanos pushed harder, although the royalists did not renounce the attack, although they did not create great danger. The magic, however, came in the 38th minute. Guardiola fell to the right wing, left his pair and put the ball on the arrival of Míchel who culminated the striker's play with the first goal of the season in Zorrilla.

La Real Sociedad came out with more intention in the second half and found an unexpected ally. Roberto López took a free-kick from 35 meters, the ball bounced in front of Masip and slipped under his body, tying the game. That goal left the Blanquivioletas very touched, while the royalists began to glimpse the possibility of victory on the horizon.. Sergio's team came out unscathed in the minutes after the goalkeeper's call and Orellana put a ball on Guardiola's head, which did not arrive by centimeters. Despite the changes to refresh both squads, between the heat and the high pace of the first league game, there were hardly any clear chances and only Kike made a cross that brushed the post before ending the match in which the Israeli Weissman debuted .

In this way, Real Valladolid and Real Sociedad inaugurate their locker with one point each and are already thinking about the second day.

Sergio Gonzalez

The Real Valladolid coach, Sergio González, He described the draw against Real Sociedad as “positive” because it means adding a point, but he affirmed that it leaves him a “bittersweet feeling” because it was “a great game against a great rival” and his team, he said, was superior in many phases of the game. game.“In the first half we were superior to them but that individual error, which ended in a goal, hurt us, and that allowed them to be better than us in the later minutes, because they were better positioned, but after the break for hydration it was balanced by The game was new, and he was even able to opt for our side, “he commented.

Therefore, he has been satisfied because “Real's qualities have been handcuffed and scoring chances have been created”, and also for the footballers, “because they have been at a great level, also being the first league game”, but “not so happy with the result.” “It is our fate, to deserve more and not get it, and we try to turn that around. The demand that football requires of us is maximum, because we never have that push in the back, but the team cannot be asked for more today, because they have been at a very high level “he added.

In this sense, and being somewhat critical, he admitted that “perhaps there was a lack of depth on the outside” and that some players, such as Plano or Hervías, “have not participated much in the game”, but he warned that Real “also played, knows how to balance the space and it was not easy.”

As for the goal scored by Míchel, he pointed out that it was “A very nice play, with a change of direction by Nacho, a good maneuver by Guardiola and the appearance of the pivot to finish off in the second row”, which shows that “with the ball” they can also “do interesting things”.

Regarding Imanol Alguacil's complaint regarding the protocol and the arrival of the players at the stadium, Sergio clarified that they were told that “It is each team that decides if they want to be at the stadium an hour and a half before the game, or just 45 minutes before”, and that Real Valladolid chose the first option.

But he pointed out that “playing is being prioritized” in those marked protocols, but “the essence of football is being lost”, so he asks that “the ideal be found for the player to have his routine, concentrate on football and be able to work in the field”.

Imanol Sheriff

The coach of Real Sociedad, Imanol Alguacil, has indicated this Sunday that his intention was “to win” because they have a team “that he does not concede chances and that he does not yield goals”, but according to the game has taken as good the point achieved “on the first day and away from home”.

In your opinion, “The first half was even, with occasions in both goals, although you have to get it right at the end and we didn't. The goal came in a mismatch, after a bad swing that needs to be improved, but we played the game we had planned”, has detailed.

With the tie, his team felt “that could be closer to victory” and it was sought with men who do damage in the offensive game and in the pressure with the changes, but when you cannot win, a point is considered valid in a difficult field “, which he hopes to” do good “in the next match in his fiefdom.

He has indicated that his players “They have been good, but they have worn down because it was hot, and the grass made it difficult to speed up the ball, to which is added that the rival knew what he was doing” and, in the case of Barrenetxea, he has indicated that “He did a good first half, and he changed because he had discomfort”.

“Our intention is the same as always, to win, but we must give merit to the rival,” he added while clarifying that the choice of the centrals -Llorente and Aritx- is due to the fact that the coaching staff considered that “they were the best for play this game “and they” had earned the position to play and perform.

He has been critical regarding the arrival protocol of the players at the stadium and demanded that “it be the same for everyone”, because “it is not normal for a team to arrive an hour and a half before, and the other forty minutes, since in his opinion they are aspects that can influence a match “.

Regarding the possibility that there will be news in his team before the close of the transfer market, Alguacil has commented that he is happy with what he has, but since “there is time until October 5, you never know what may happen.” “We will work with those who are available and, the twenty-three with whom we have come to Valladolid were the ones who were best to win,” he warned while insisting on “accepting a point, the first day, away from home , and before a complicated rival “.
