In the absence of only seven days for the end of the regular season of Liga 1, our friends of CFR Cluj are the leaders. Their main rival, Astra, follows only one point away.
In fourth and sixth position respectively we find two other friends of Football Impact: FC Steaua Bucharest and Gaz Metan. Although they are within the group that will fight the championship, they cannot relax, since there are other teams trying to occupy these positions.
One of these teams struggling to get into the championship group is another friend of Football Impact, FC Dinamo of Bucharest. “The wolves” have reduced four points the distance with Gaz Metanin during the last few days and are confident they can occupy one of the first six places before the end of the regular season.
Before finishing the regular season our friends will come to visit us during the Winter Break and we will help them prepare the end of the season in the best possible conditions.
The weather has been unbeatable today for Malmö FF’s last training session at the Marbella Football Center. Yesterday the team celebrated a victory in the friendly match against Lincoln Red Imps, which was played in La Línea de la Concepción. Tomorrow Football Impact bids farewell to the Swedes, who will return to their country with a new challenge ahead: beating FC Copenhagen in the group stage match of the Europa League.
Our friends of Borussia Mönchengladbach, who currently rank first in the Bundesliga, will have to face FC Bayern Munich next day. “The foals” lead the top category of German football with only one defeat.
The team from Düsseldorf is the surprise of the season in European football and in the next day it wans to endorse it good run. Borussia Park will witness a duel at the top, the leader against the team with the greatest record of German football.
Marco Rose’s men are confident of getting a victory with which to move three more points away from Bayern and with which to keep the persecutors’ gap. The most immediate are RB Leipzig, at one point, and Schalke 04 (also a friend of Football Impact), at two points. Bayern ranks fourth, closing the Champions League positions.
Behind, also in European positions, we find two other friends of Football Impact: Borussia Dortmund and SC Freiburg.
Soon we will see our German friends in Winter Break with Football Impact and Marbella Football Center to prepare the second part of the season. Meanwhile we wish you the best luck!
With the 4-3 against Dinamo Kiev in the suitcase the Malmö FF has arrived in Marbella. The Swedish club have a clear idea and wants to continue its triumph in the group stage of the Europa League. After the unforgettable victory last Thursday, the team coached by the German Uwe Rösler is in second place in the Group B classification.
On December 12th, he has to play against FC Copenhagen, which currently leads the ranking of this group. The first training session took place yesterday afternoon at the Marbella Football Center. Starting today, Football Impact will take the multichampions of the Swedish league to the fields of Dama de Noche, where until December 7th they will prepare for the next challenges in international football.
When we are only a few weeks to finish the year and the first lap of LalIga Santander, only Sevilla FC endures the impressive pace that Real Madrid CF and FC Barcelona have imposed.
The team trained by Julen Lopetegui is only one point away from the two greats of world football. The great staff made by “Monchi”, with excellent signings (such as Lucas Ocampos) and the good work of the Basque coach have taken the team to third place, just one point to the head.
At the same time, the team is qualified for the next round of the Europa League, its favourite competition. Five victories in five games have given the team from Nervión the first place with an impressive authority.
In the next days the team from Sevilla will have to face Osasuna, Villarreal and Mallorca in order to maintain their good position before the Christmas holidays.
Germany’s second division will also be present in the winter pre-season of football in Spain. Football Impact has organised a training camp for VfL Bochum, which with its more than 170 years of tradition and a large number of fans is one of the most popular clubs.
Bochum has chosen Jerez de la Frontera in the province of Cádiz to train between the 12th and 19th of January 2020 under the sun and away from the cold that normally prevails during this time in those country. The Hotel Barceló Montecastillo, where the team will be staying, is only eleven kilometres away from the city and offers all the services that professional players need for optimum preparation.
Many teams in the German Premier League rely on Football Impact’s services every year to organise their winter pre-season. Among the repeaters is Fortuna Düsseldorf, which for the third consecutive year has chosen the city of Marbella as its headquarters in the first days of next year.
From the 4th to the 11th of January Düsseldorf in the facilities of La Dama de Noche will set the stage for the next matches in the Bundesliga. Werder Bremen will be waiting for them at home as the first opponent in the second half of the season on the 18th of January.
FC Schalke 04 is one of the first teams in the German league to prepare for the second half of the season in Spain in 2020. It is the fifth time that this well-known club repeats its traditional winter stage with Football Impact.
During its stay from the 2nd to 9th of January the team of coach David Wagner has chosen the Sheraton Hacienda del Álamo Golf and Spa Resort, which is located in Fuente Álamo in the Region of Murcia. In the heart of southeastern Spain the players from the city of Gelsenkirchen, apart from their daily training, will also play a friendly match.
FC Schalke 04 is currently in fifth position in the Bundesliga. They are only three points behind current German Premier League leader Borussia Monchengladbach.
The results of yesterday’s Champions League matches did not favor the friends of Football Impact. Liverpool managed to draw and remain as group leader, while Borussia lost at Camp Nou.
Jürgen Klopp’s men managed to tie a match they started losing against Naples. Anfield feared the worst with Mertens’ goal in the 21st, but a great head shot of Lovren from the penalty spot left the score in a draw and the team at the top of the standings
The “reds” only need to draw against Red Bull Salzsburg in Austria to qualify on the last day of the group stage. Although if they want to be first they need to win or hope that Naples does not improve their result.
For its part, the defeat of Borussia against Barça leaves it in a more complicated situation. They need to improve Inter’s result on the last day, although the Italians play against Barça and they will do so against the group’s last team, Slavia Prague, another friend of Football Impact.
Our Belgian friends of the Club Brugge KV, got yesterday a draw in the final stages of the Champions League match against Galatasaray at Ali Sami Yen Stadium.
Although Philippe Montanier’s men started losing the game very soon (minute 11th), they did not lower their arms at any time and tried to draw during all the game. But the matchwas very difficult and the Turkish atmosphere was pushing hard.
But a great goal by Diatta, starting from the right wing and penetrating towards the center, gave the Belgians a draw a few minutes before the end of the game.
This point is very important, since it allows them to keep the Galatasaray below, which makes them favorites to keep the place that gives access to the Europa League.
