"IT s big welcome in back in. GMC soccer podcast. I'm your host. who gets more gives a follow on twitter at GMC underscores soccer facebook GS MC soccer like it? If a like you find this podcast Real Madrid. They have an advantage manage in Lega over Barcelona. We've talked about the reasons about this on this show. Barcelo fires that are manager then can't get out of its own way against Valencia. Kiki said tens on rough patch. You can't go and fire him after you fire the last guy because you're going to run out of bodies that can actually run this thing rumors that Barcelona players are running practices. Players are making the lion. Now you can deny those rumors all they want but they're bad rumors to have around your team in that puts rahm adrift in a really interesting position this weekend. Athletico Madrid who struggled this year currently in fifth behind severe and Guitar. riffing thank. We'll head in to the Bernabeu in face. Real Madrid. Who has won its last five matches while Athletico only one win in the last five that came over Barcelona earlier this month? They drew in the Premier Division. The LALITA ATHLETICO couldn't get a goal against right now. The nineteenth team in the league on the table so Athletico and not good straits right now three losses before or that including a penalty loss in the supercup in Saudi Arabia against Real Madrid and Real Madrid. To me is a team in for. This is a team that is absolutely rolling this is a team of Zenit Sadan at the forefront this match kickoff ten am eastern. On Saturday morning. This is a team that has tons of talent. They're organized they believe in their manager and they understand how big of an opportunity this is this weekend. A Win Against Athletico means you pick up wins against severe. Who's right now third and league? You pick up a win against Athletico's fifth fifth in league and your rival in Madrid so you would be at forty nine points. Maybe Barcelona wins but you still have a three point advantage against them. You have way more momentum van them your schedule will be software. Moving forward Dan Barcelona's and with the way Barcelona's going. They might not have this. This thing figured out yet if you can find a way to get three points if you're Real Madrid tomorrow in Barcelona slips up you're talking about a six point lead in Lalita and Real Madrid who. I sat on this show. Four weeks ago should be the favorite moving forward even though these teams were tied at forty points halfway through the season. Real Madrid will be very much in the driver's seat in Lalita. If those things happen this weekend it's a massive weekend in Spain. Hoodoo I think's GonNa win this match up. I think it's Real Madrid. I think they understand the importance there against a team. That hasn't been good as years. Passed passed a team. That's not informed in Athletico Madrid. A team who athletico honestly be more focused on their Champions League draw their round of sixteen in a couple of weeks then they are this match against Real Madrid in a league race that they don't think they can compete in their ten points behind Real Madrid and that's a tough tough thing to make up with about thirteen. Fourteen matches left so athletico might not even be fully focused on this one and if you drop one to Madrid athletic will be able to recover athletico finish in the top four. They're not really worried about that. And obviously common rival but I get Real Madrid at home too so this feels this feels like a Real Madrid win. This feels like a team that has a manager has a culture has a way of doing business. This is the type of game were teams that have all those things tend to take care of business and I expect I expect that from Real Madrid this weekend and it will put Barcelona on skates. If they find a way to lose. That would be rough Dow. It'd be awfully rough for Barcelona rougher. Their Fans Madrid has a real opportunity opportunity. Right now to make a run in Lalita. Let's take a look at the five thirty eight league standings in terms of how they you think this is GonNa play out. We look at the standings so far they think Real Madrid will win the league. They have them winning the league. Sixty four percent of their simulations with Barcelona celona winning thirty three percent. It's Vienna Madrid coming at one percent. And that's yeah. That's that's looking pretty pretty good in terms of statistics in terms of projections and those projections will widen very far if this weekend. Real Madrid were able to beat Athletico. Let it go. FIVETHIRTYEIGHT has Real Madrid fifty eight percent favorites against Athletico Madrid. Barcelona there eighty six percent favorites and they should win. Will they win though. We'll talk about that match on the other side of the break you're listening to the MC soccer podcast. Are.

"When people thought they wouldn't be maybe more ready for the Olympics because you have such a young roster. I think she brought twelve uncapped players this last tournament. I would say Netherlands is another one. You gotta watch out for everyone. Just crushing. They are the young six six team. Yeah. In terms of favorites. So they seem good. But yeah, I mean, I feel like for the first time in a long time. There's not like a two or three team elite. There's like almost six or seven teams on the win. It. And I guess like my question that feeds off of that is is that a good thing for us soccer's have signed that everybody's caught up is the sign that everybody's kind of good or bad or inevitable. The same for the past two cycles has been the one that's caught up. And now it's a sign of we need to figure out how to improve. And the good thing is is where we can improve. You could teach that it's all about getting the coaches. Across the entire nation and like figuring out a coaching style. And what you want to curse me to educate our coach better. It's a technical tactical. That is letting us down. It's so funny to hear you say that I hear I talked to so many former players so many of them American men, women, whatever and one of the first things they point to in this country is coaching. And it's you know, there's so many where they've gone overseas. They've been like, wow, it's such a different level such a different level. And you get prepared in a way that you. I think every player that's quality should go overseas just to see because they have to go through Sony more coaching levels because they're smaller countries. Right. And you'll have I think it's what forty percent, or volunteer coaches the United States at the youth level. Otherwise, you're doing pay to play at Asia, eight in Wisconsin. It's fifteen hundred bucks at the age eight and you're spec. Three times a week. And I'm like, I'm not doing that. And then I get right. And I get like daddy daycare for, mommy. Daycare because I coached and I was horrible at it. No. But that's I mean, that's part of the issue with right fro. It's interesting. I always wonder if like some of it's just inevitable. Hey, the US has such a head start. There's going to avoid the fat. But it's a good thing. Is that the other countries are investing it, I love it? Everyone's catching up, but now, hey, United States US soccer. We can do better because we have to if you want to win. So now we have one final. A country that for me is fixing to explode Spain you look in the crowds that they've gone recently around women's the investment of teams in Lalita Athletico Madrid is a team that will be here for the international Cup. They have a very very I think well funded and properly resourced women's team alone a lot into so. And if you think about the quality over all of the Spanish technical player, and the this isn't a secret to those of us that have watched the end W w sell. We remember when barrel book was here. Like, we remember all those that came over and remember them in the western New York flash had like three or four Spaniards, and they were pretty good cousin. So I think you know, Spain is a team that whether they whether they do it this world hover. Not like you talk about emerging powers and they've got to be right at the top of the list. So let's take a break when we come back. We'll be we'll get with your teammates talk a little bit about five aside game. We'll do some ninety nine memories. And then we'll maybe we'll talk about some of the stuff that's going on around the women's game. Now, equal pay. And maybe some other headline grabbing things I'm really interested. Get everybody's thoughts. On a Libyan mole tree this young lady. Who's now playing with the Portland thorns, very very interested. You just talked about pay to play at eight. I mean this this young kid. He is thirteen. Exactly that she's flip that narrative on its head. So we'll take a quick break on the other side some more than ninety nine legends. Join us. We're back from the international Champions Cup in New.
