Sporting: Adam, 10 minutes in hell – Soccer

Propelled captain in the absence of Sebastián Coates, Antonio Adán played this Tuesday the worst game of his career against Olympique de Marseille (4-1) in the Champions League. A disastrous performance for the Spanish goalkeeper, who threw Sporting de Portugal into the ravine.

Adam had a nightmare in Marseilles.

Sitting, alone, in the stands of the Vlodrome, with dark eyes, biting his tracksuit, in added time. Two hours earlier, Antonio Adán (35) did not expect to spend the worst afternoon of his football career. And yet, the Sporting Portugal goalkeeper did go through hell against Olympique de Marseille.

Adam, the best ally of OM

Everything had started well for the former Real Madrid player. In the corridors of the Marseillais venue, the goalkeeper of the Lusitanian formation displayed a wide smile. After all, the Lions had yet to concede a single goal in two Champions League games against Eintracht Frankfurt (0-3) and Tottenham (2-0). Better yet, Iber wore the captain’s armband in the absence of the injured Sebastián Coates. Good afternoon, the last bastion of Sporting was approaching, which had quickly gone ahead thanks to a goal from Francisco Trincao less than a minute away. Before the tragedy.

However, relying on a low shot from Amine Harit, Adan lost his balance on a missed clearance directly over Alexis Sánchez in the 13th minute. A winner, sure, but it took more to destabilize him. And that else was happening very quickly. In a new recovery error, Madrid returned the ball to Marseille, who in a few seconds converted their offer by Harit, author of a header taking advantage of the poor positioning of the opposing goalkeeper in the 16th minute. Two gifts at this level of competition, the French runner-up has been spoiled.

A 0 is very rare

But as the saying goes, never two without three . The best ally of the Marseille club, Adam definitely snapped in harmless action. After a long clearance by Pau López, the ex-merengue miscalculated a run by Nuno Tavares, who went deep. Surprised by a head control that was too long down the left wing, the one who defended the Betis cage between 2014 and 2018 touched the ball with his hand outside his area in an incomprehensible way. A direct red card at 23 minutes that allowed OM to calmly manage the debates and dig a little further into the distance 5 minutes after his departure.

Strange fact to underline, Adán was credited with a note of 0/10 by the editorial staff of Maxifoot. To find the trace of a bubble on our site, you have to go back to the slap inflicted by Bayern Munich on FC Barcelona (8-2), in August 2020. At that time, Marc-Andr ter Stegen, Nelson Semedo, Gerard Piqu, Clment Lenglet, Sergi Roberto and Arturo Vidal had also achieved this feat. To catch up, Adán will have to wait three weeks and the transfer of Sporting Tottenham during matchday 5.
