Supercup-Aus with Valencia
Cömert fail against Real Madrid nerves
Eray Cömert (24) experienced an evening to forget with Valencia against Real Madrid in the Supercup semi-final. The ex-FCB player owes a penalty and misses a penalty.
The match at the King Abdullah Sports City stadium in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia is attractive. Real Madrid and Valencia are in a duel at eye level. The ball goes back and forth in this Supercup semi-final. And Eray Cömert, the ex-Basler in the Valencia dress, is right in the middle.
Shortly before the break, he gets real star Karim Benzema off his feet. penalty. Cömert complains that he played the ball. He does not have. The referee justifiably shows yellow. Benzema confidently sunk the penalty due to make it 1-0 for the royals.
Shortly after the break, Valencia reacted: Samuel Lino equalized – and gave Cömert and his colleagues hope.
The decision is only made after 120 minutes. In the penalty shootout. And again Cömert is right in the middle. As the second Valencia shooter, he takes on Real goalie Thibaut Courtois. And the defender’s nerves are failing him. Cömer hits the ball in the Arabian night sky. Because then Jose Gaya also misses, Real Madrid moves into the Supercup final. There, Los Blancos meet either Barcelona or Betis. (mum)
