Record Breaking Final Score: Venlo 0-13 Ajax

Advertisements

Goalscorers


Five goals from Lassina Traore and two from Jurgen Ekkelenkamp helped Ajax complete an Eredivisie-record 13-0 win over VVV Venlo on Saturday.

Ajax boss Erik ten Hag said: “Compliments to the team. They were hungry — 13-0, a very good victory indeed, a new record. VVV has shown this season that they are capable of getting good results, we’ve seen that this season already, but it is our accomplishment. We have forced this ourselves.

Venlo were reduced to 10 men on 52 minutes when Christian Kum was sent off after the video assistant referee upgraded his yellow card for violent conduct to a red.


However, the damage had already been done at this stage, with Ajax 4-0 up thanks to two goals from Traore and additional scores from Ekkelenkamp and Dusan Tadic.

Venlo further collapsed after the sending off with four Ajax goals in five minutes from Traore, Anthony, Ekkelenkamp and Daley Blind.

Traore added his fourth on 54 minutes, and two goals from Klaas-Jan Huntelaar on 74 and 76 minutes took it to 11-0.

With 12 minutes left, Lisandro Martinez made it 12-0 before Traore added his fifth of the game on 87 minutes.

VVV Venlo boss Hans de Koning said: “I really don’t have much to say. A total off day. We had too much respect for Ajax. We have it made too easy. We have failed. But no one passed away today. It is a match. We have lost. And it is a historic loss, but we need to take it as a man. Head up, chest out.”

The previous record for biggest scoreline in the Eredivisie was also held by Ajax, who beat Vitesse 12-1 in 1972.

The win sends Ajax to the top of the Eredivisie after losing to Liverpool in the Champions League during the week.

5 Reasons why haaland Is more better than Jovic

Advertisements

Luka Jovic cost Real Madrid 60 million euros, and Zinedine Zidane has acknowledged that it was a signing made on his request, yet the Serbian hasn’t yet lived up to expectations at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, all whilst Erling Haaland is going from strength to strength.


There is clear uncertainty with regards to Jovic’s future in the Spanish capital, whilst fans are clamouring for the signing of Haaland to take his place, with some even going as far as to wonder just why he isn’t at the club already.

There are five clear reasons as to why Haaland would be a much better fit with Los Merengues than Jovic:

Advertisements
  1. Passion against coldness
    Jovic showed his ability as a goalscorer during his excellent spell with Eintracht Frankfurt, but he is a very cold player. He’s too cold for what the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu and Real Madrid stand for. Haaland is the polar opposite, he exudes passion in every single player he is involved in and easily connects with supporters, whether they are in the stands or not. In this regard, Haaland would very quickly create a bond with the club’s fans, something even Karim Benzema didn’t always do.
  2. The speed of the Norwegian
    Haaland is possibly the fastest player in world football right now. His moving starts are barely believable and Los Blancos miss that kind of player in their attacking line. Jovic doesn’t have that speed.
  3. Haaland is a leader
    Despite only joining the club in January 2020 and being just 20 years old, Haaland is already a leader at Borussia Dortmund. On the pitch he makes his teammates better and he drags them forward when things aren’t going well. Jovic is different, on the pitch he is a secondary figure and hasn’t showed the propensity for leadership in any of his appearances for the Spanish club. He doesn’t have the soul of a natural leader.
Advertisements
  1. Haaland’s reliability is beyond question
    The Norwegian international gets better with every season that passes. He didn’t notice the change from Salzburg to Dortmund, the goals just kept coming, despite the fact the German side are one of the biggest in the world. His goalscoring averages are consistently excellent and you have to consider that the current iteration of Real Madrid is possibly one of the worst going forward that there has been since 2000. Jovic has only had one standout season and that came in Germany, and this generates doubt where there is none with Haaland.
  2. Jovic has too many off-pitch problems
    The Serbian has had a difficult year on the pitch, but also away from it. He has too many problems away from football as we saw with him bypassing lockdown and travelling to Serbia, he then was at a barbecue in the middle of the pandemic, which was clearly prohibited. Finally, he suffered a strange injury whilst he was on holiday. This is simply too many problems for a club like Real Madrid. Where Haaland is concerned, you only ever hear about him scoring goal after goal, nothing away from the pitch.

Things You may have missed in Madrid’s El Clasico Victory

Advertisements

Real Madrid came out on top in the first Clasico of the 2020/21 season in LaLiga Santander. Goals from Fede Valverde, Sergio Ramos and Luka Modric secured all three points for the visitors at the Camp Nou, while Ansu Fati had equalised for Barcelona.


We’ve collated some images you may have missed from the match, including Jordi Alba’s recognition of Lionel Messi, Ronald Koeman’s reaction to Real Madrid’s penalty, confusion on the visiting bench and the outside of the foot finish by Modric.

Since Ronaldo left Madrid, Messi hasn’t score a goal in El Clasico

Advertisements

After drawing another blank on Saturday, Lionel Messi has now failed to score against Real Madrid in each of his last seven games against them. Ansu Fati scored Barcelona’s only goal as they were beaten 3-1 in the Clasico at the Camp Nou.


The last time Messi found the net against Los Blancos was during the 2-2 draw at the Camp Nou on Matchday 36 of the 2017/18 LaLiga Santander season. That means the Argentine is yet to score against Real Madrid since the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus. This season, Messi has scored just one goal in LaLiga Santader – during Barcelona’s opening game against Villarreal. Since then, he’s failed to score or make an assist in four league matches. You have to go back to 2014 to find a similarly poor run from the forward.

Messi’s slow start to the new campaign comes after a rocky summer at Barcelona. After surrendering the LaLiga Santander title to Real Madrid and suffering the 8-2 defeat to Bayern Munich in August, the 33-year-old handed in a transfer request, which was rejected by the club. Away from his club duties, Messi has scored once in two games for Argentina in the 2020/21 season – against Ecuador in a World Cup qualifier in October.

Segino Dest not happy with Barca’s Clasico defeat

Advertisements

Sergino Dest participated in his first ever Clasico against Real Madrid on Saturday afternoon, but he left the pitch frustrated after Barcelona’s 3-1 defeat at the hands of Los Blancos. Both Barcelona and Real Madrid had chances to grab the victory, but while the home side lacked the clinical touch, Los Blancos managed to net three goals and grab all three points at the Camp Nou.


“It was a really tough match,” Dest said. “We had chances, they had chances, and it’s just too bad that we lost. “It’s my first El Clasico and I’m just pi**ed that we lost. “They were maybe a little bit sharper in the chances. They finished them and we didn’t. “We have another game on Wednesday against Juventus [in the Champions League] and we have to win that one and get the team spirit back.”

Ronald Koeman placed Dest in his natural position at right-back and the Dutchman put together a decent performance, both defensively and in attack. Asked where he prefers to play, he stressed that he can feature wherever he is needed.”I feel a little more comfortable on the right, but if I have to play on the left, that’s no problem for me,” Dest stated.

‘We deserved the win and we win it’s – Courtios on Madrid win

Advertisements

Real Madrid beat Barcelona 3-1 at the Camp Nou following two consecutive defeats at the hands of Cadiz and Shakhtar Donetsk, and Thibaut Courtois has stressed that he and his team-mates should do their best regardless of who they play against. The Belgian put in another solid performance, making some great saves to help Real Madrid secure all three points at the Camp Nou and extend the gap between the two clubs in LaLiga Santander to six points.


“This shirt and badge deserve to be fought for and valued in every game,” Courtois said after the match against Barcelona. “Today we did it because we came from two difficult and bad games. Today we put in a lot of desire and ran a lot. “It was not an easy week. In the game against Cadiz we did not start well and it was difficult. We did not do our best. “And against Shakhtar we were good until we conceded the goals. Then in the second half we put in our will and courage. Today we played a good match.”

Fede Valverde gave Real Madrid the lead but after Ansu Fati’s equaliser, Los Blancos managed to react, Ramos giving them back the lead in the second half. Courtois noted that the team should be content about the result but focus on the upcoming Champions League match against Borussia Monchengladbach on Tuesday. “We scored a goal, which was what we wanted,” Courtois added. “Then they equalised, with [Jordi] Alba’s strength and wide runs.

“The game was even; I made a good save and Neto [did] too. There were great chances in the second half. We scored the penalty and then we were able to score the third before, but Neto made some good saves. “This victory fills us with confidence after two games in which people could doubt us. The key when things go a little bad is to stay together. “Now we don’t have to be very excited. We have to be happy but think about the Tuesday [game against Borussia Monchengladbach].”

Furious Koeman can’t explain how he feels after El Clasico’s defeat

Advertisements

Barcelona reacted furiously to the VAR decision that cost them the Clasico with Ronald Koeman accusing the video assistant referee system of only giving decisions against them. One club director went further abusing the referee on social media.


Real Madrid beat Barcelona 3-1 at the Nou Camp but the game turned in the second half when Sergio Ramos had his shirt pulled by Clement Lenglet and VAR prompted the referee to check the incident pitchside.

Koeman told Barca TV: ‘Every decision goes against us. In five games there have been none in our favour. There was the [Leo] Messi penalty against Sevilla that was not given and the red card against Getafe. Today’s penalty is just something that happens in the area.’

Lenglet’s tug on Ramos’ shirt convinced Juan Martinez to point to the spot and the Real Madrid captain scored the penalty to put his side 2-1 ahead.

Koeman added: ‘I don’t think it’s a penalty. VAR in Spain only acts against Barcelona.’

Betis fans were also furious with the decision because their striker Toni Sanabria was involved in an identical situation a week early and no penalty was given.

Advertisements

One Barcelona director went even further and had to apologise online. Xavi Vilajoana, who is director at the club of women’s football and Barcelona B tweeted: ‘This is a f*** scandal. Munuera f off.’

He later tweeted apologising if he ‘had offended anyone’ with the message.

Barcelona full-back Sergino Dest preferred to concentrate on the team’s failure to take their chances post-match. He said: ‘I don’t know if it was a penalty. They had chances and we had chances but they were maybe a bit sharper in their finishing.’

Real Madrid were just happy to end a run of two straight defeats. Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois said: ‘It was not easy playing against Cadiz last weekend after the international break and conceding an early goal we could not get back into the game. We then had a hard game facing Shakhtar in Europe.

‘But here we had the intensity that the manager wanted from us. It was a bit back and forth in the second half but we got the penalty and we held out for the win.

‘We have to fight in each game when we wear this shirt. Today we did that. This is only three points but it gives us an awful lot of confidence.

Real Madrid now leads the Clasico history

Advertisements

Over recent years, Barcelona have equaled and even surpassed Real Madrid in number of victories in Clásicos across all competitions but find themselves behind.


The first Clásico of the 2020/21 LaLiga between Barcelona and Real Madrid at Camp Nou went the way of the visitors in a very entertaining affair. It was the 245th match that the two Spanish giants had played against each other, with both teams fighting for the top spot of the domestic tournament.

In their previous meeting Los Blancos beat the Catalan side back in March, in a season that ended up with Real Madrid winning the championship.

The Clásicos: the head to head
As well as the 254 competitive games, Barça and Madrid have met another 34 times in friendlies and other exhibition matches.

Their overall head-to-head record has been extremely tight. Real’s latest win bputs them one ahead of Barça with 97 wins vs 96.

The Guardiola era, a ‘Real’ boost for Barça
Madrid had a notable advantage over Barcelona at the beginning of the 2000s, but the arrival of Pep Guardiola to the Barcelona bench turned the situation around.

In La Liga, Barça have won 13 of the Clasicos played since Guardiola’s appointment, drawing four and losing four. They also won the 2010-11 Champions League semi-final, (0-2 at Santiago Bernabéu, 1-1 at Camp Nou).

Barcelona, Real Madrid… and the trophies
The debate over which is the most decorated club in Spanish football continues and will probably remain in the conversation for a long time.

Real Madrid have a total of 119 trophy wins over their history in all competitions (includes regional, national, continental and global), while Barcelona have gathered 129 titles.

Los Merengues dominate in main competitions, with 34 Spanish leagues and 11 European Cups; Barcelona have a higher number of total trophies.
