What happened to the pichichis of the last ten Cups of the King?

first_imgThe Copa del Rey is the tournament of the little ones, of the opportunities for those teams that conform year to year with the salvation in LaLiga Santander and also for the less habitual soccer players. With few exceptions, coaches usually bet in the KO tournament for substitutes or alternate undisputed with regular players. Thus, Messi did not dispute the round of 16, Modric and Kroos stayed at home, Morata also did not travel with the already eliminated Atlético … Reviewing the First Division scorers table in the last decade leads to an unequivocal conclusion: Leo Messi has been the king and only Cristiano and Luis Suárez have shaded him. However, in Copa, different pichichis have happened in recent years. What is theirs? Are they still in Spanish football? Have they always been from a First Division team?Last season they shared an award Ángel Rodríguez, Rodrigo Moreno and Toko Ekambi. Curious, since neither Real Madrid nor Barcelona nor Atlético had representation. All of them scored five goals and the Valencianist helped his team win the tournament. They continue in their club, except the former striker of Villarreal, who has landed at Lyon in this same winter market. In the 2017-18 season, two other players tied targets at the top of the table: Luis Suarez and Correa They signed five targets. The Argentine is now owned by Lazio, which invested a figure close to fifteen million euros. Of course, none could reach the figure of Victor Curto, Murcia forward, who scored six goals. His team did not even reach sixteenths, despite the display of his battering ram in the previous rounds.The pichichis of the Cup in the last decade The unforgettable year of Pablo InfanteThe new format of the Copa del Rey was born with the purpose of gaining emotion and, why not, that the Mirandés deed happened again in the 2011-12 season. It started as so many others have done: as Second Division B team It is measured with a club that plays European competitions. Before, I had already eliminated Amorebieta, Balompédica Linense and Logroñés. In sixteenths it was time for the truth. And they succeeded: they overthrew the Villarreal and then they would do it with him Racing and the Spanish. In the semifinals, the Athletic He put an end to the dream and warned them at the gates of the final. Even so, it was an unforgettable year, which ended with the promotion to LaLiga SmartBank.The great protagonist of that unlikely story was Pablo Infante. The attacker was the top scorer of that Cup with six goals and aroused the interest of everyone in football, as he combined his work on the pitch with his profession in a bank. Once retired, he decided to oppose one of the vacant administrative positions in the Mobility service of the City of Burgos. Perhaps it was even harder to be the best score of the 560 applicants than their historic Cup. With the current format, of course, more images like yours will be seen again. “I am in favor of everything that allows the surprise and that the small team can bid against the big one,” he said in an interview in AS.ALBERTO IRANZO & nbsp; (DAILY AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Cristiano Ronaldo scored the decisive goal of the 2010-11 Copa del Rey final.ALBERTO IRANZO (DAILY AS) 2018-19Ángel (Getafe), Rodrigo (Valencia) and Ekambi (Villarreal)5 2009-10Maxi Rodríguez (Athletic)5 2016-17Messi (Barcelona) and Ben Yedder (Seville)5 2010-11Messi (Barcelona) and Cristiano (Real Madrid)7 FELIX ORDONEZ & nbsp; (REUTERS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>The Mirandés reached the semifinals of the Copa del Rey in the 2011-12 season from Second Division B.FELIX ORDONEZ (REUTERS) 2017-18Víctor Curto (Real Murcia)6 2011-12Pablo Infante (Mirandés)6center_img 2014-15Iago Aspas (Sevilla) and Neymar (Barcelona)7 SeasonPlayersGoals Messi also reigns in the CupFor the star of Barcelona it is not impediment to play less minutes to crown the ranking of top scorer of the year in the KO tournament.

It was in the 2010-11 season, when he scored a great goal in the final to give the title to his team. In addition, that historic header also served to match the seven goals that Leo Messi had so far. Two years later, the Portuguese signed the same figure, but did not reach the eight of Diego Costa, the best brand of the whole decade. As with the Madrid player, the Spanish-Brazilian striker scored in the final to give the trophy to his Atletico. First of all, in 2009-10, Maxi Rodríguez was the top gunner of the KO tournament.

Taking the bus is a whole lot safer than taking the car

first_imgMay 9 2018Taking the bus is a whole lot safer than taking the car – and it’s also safer for cyclists and pedestrians who take the same routes, according to a new study led by the Université de Montréal Public Health Research Institute (IRSPUM).Published in the Journal of Urban Health, the study looked at the risk of injury along the 10 busiest bus routes on the island of Montreal and showed that the risk is four times greater for car occupants than for bus occupants.Besides looking at specific routes, the study is the first to compare the effect of car and bus use on the safety of pedestrians and cyclists. Per kilometre travelled, car trips were associated with a greater number of pedestrian injuries (four times more), cyclist injuries (five times more), and fatal and severe injuries (five times more) compared to bus trips.There were 28 times more seriously injured people in cars (278 over 10 years, including 19 deaths) than bus occupants (10 seriously injured, no deaths). Forty-two pedestrians and three cyclists were killed by cars, versus four pedestrians and zero cyclists by bus.Driven by prosWhy is bus travel safer? For one, drivers are professionally trained. Second, they drive more slowly than cars. Third, buses travel along designated routes and usual stick to the right lane, which make them more predictable in traffic. Fourth, far fewer buses than cars are needed to transport the same number of people.In Montreal, a shift towards public transit will help reduce the number of injuries, the study argues. For the period studied, 2001 to 2010, it estimates that bus travel along these 10 routes saved 1,805 vehicle occupants, 156 cyclists and 476 pedestrians from injury.”The fundamental point is that pedestrians, cyclists and motor-vehicle occupants are mostly injured where the speeds are highest and where there are the most vehicles, on the major arteries,” said lead author Patrick Morency.Related StoriesAMSBIO offers new, best-in-class CAR-T cell range for research and immunotherapySchwann cells capable of generating protective myelin over nerves finds researchOlympus Europe and Cytosurge join hands to accelerate drug development, single cell research”The solution? Permanent structure to reduce speeds, and public transit,’ said Morency, an assistant clinical professor at IRSPUM who works at the Montreal Public Health Department.4 times as much car trafficHelped by colleagues there and along with others at the Réseau de transport métropolitain (RTM) and the Sociéte de transport de Montréal (STM), Morency looked at weekday collision and injury data compiled in police reports to Quebec’s automobile insurance board, the SAAQ, between 2001 and 2010. During that period, car travel on the 10 routes accounted for four times as many passenger kilometres annually than bus travel: 1.3 billion versus 257 million.(Car travel was actually much higher, since the data include all vehicles and don’t differentiate cars from heavy trucks and buses.)The busiest car and bus routes were along Henri-Bourassa Blvd., Sherbrooke St. and Côte Vertu Blvd. and Sauvé St. But those weren’t the most dangerous routes; the highest injury rates in cars were seen along Jarry St., Jean-Talon Blvd. and Beaubien St. The highest cyclist injury rates associated with car travel were Beaubien, Jarry and Sherbrooke; for pedestrians, Beaubien, Jarry and Jean-Talon. Lacordaire Blvd. and (involving pedestrians) Pie-IX Blvd. were also in the top 3 for bus accidents.Although newer injury data, up to 2016, is available, precise traffic data for the routes studied were not, and so the current research had to be limited to 2001-2010, Morency said. He is now working with Jillian Strauss and Catherine Morency (Polytechnique Montréal) on compiling figures not only for the 10 busiest routes but also for the Montreal metropolitan area. In the meantime, he has presented his latest study to Montreal transit officials, and hopes they’ll use the analysis in public-information campaigns touting not just the savings but also the safety of traveling by bus.
