Barcelona to cut player wages due to coronavirus

Barcelona are taking steps to lower the wages of their staff and players to decrease the financial impacts of the coronavirus crisis, the La Liga club said on Thursday.

All skilled players in Barcelona, including six-times world player of the year Lionel Messi, in addition to non-playing staff, will face a compulsory wage decrease throughout the period of lockdown, the club’s directors decided at a board meeting held via video conference.

Spain was put into lockdown on March 14 with taxpayers only permitted to leave their homes to be able to conduct essential business. The period is anticipated to be extended this weekend after the first 15-day period has ended.

Spain has been Europe’s second-most affected country by the pandemic behind Italy, with the death toll exceeding 4,000. More than 56,000 people have tested positive for the virus.

“One of the measures adopted, it is worth noting those associated with the office are prompted by the need to adapt the contractual duties of the team staff into the new and temporary conditions which we’re experiencing,” Barcelona said in a statement.

“This is a reduction of the working day, imposed by the situation and the security measures carried out, and, for that reason, the proportional reduction of the remuneration provided for in the various contracts.”

Barca also said they’ve made their club and annex facilities available to the government’s regional health department. However the pandemic hasn’t affected sports betting in Barcelona.

Spain has been perhaps one of the most easy-going and relaxed countries that have a substantial population engaged in sports betting activities. There are plenty of Barcelona betting sites and the Spanish government does not make a big hue and cry over it. So, if you are in Spain, keen to gamble online, and need help finding a Blackjack casino, you will not be disappointed. All types of gambling are legal here for more than 3 decades. The Spanish market however had not been regulated till 2011; at that time, the government passed the Spanish Gambling Act.

Some of the biggest bookies you could sign up with in Barcelona are Bet365, Bwin, 888casino, etc. You must be 18 years and above to engage in any form of gambling. In 2006, the government has passed online gambling laws making sports betting absolutely legitimate both in licensed betting places and online. Almost $1.9 billion is spent by the country annually on betting. All winnings below 2,500 Euros are exempt from taxation. All sports betting sites in Barcelona and the rest of Spain must apply for licenses and receive this first before they can offer any product. Football betting is most popular here, for obvious reasons. Popular examples of Spanish bookies that have licenses include Interwetten and William Hill. You can refer to blogs like แทงบอลออนไลน์ to find legal and licensed online football betting sites and increase your chances of earning a maximum profit.

Depositing or withdrawing money from accounts on Spanish betting websites is easy after the 2011 Spanish Gambling Act. You can choose to pay using a variety of payment methods, like credit/debit cards, PayPal, Skrill, and Neteller.

3 Point for CD Llosa

Triumph of Llosa in El Sequiol against Enguera. The match was held on a spring afternoon, where both are in relegation positions. In the end the three points were taken by those of La Costera with a goal from Boluda, about the first quarter of an hour against those of La Canal de Navarrés who had clear chances in the second half.

The first forty-five minutes were local, although there were few occasions on both teams. As soon as they started, the visitors had it through Zhivko in a cross shot that went away, in the 12th minute, a combination play between Muñoz and Boluda. The latter surprised visiting goalkeeper Óscar to score Llosa’s only goal in the match. After the goal they claimed a penalty from the goalkeeper over Boluda but the referee allowed to continue, despite protests from local fans.

Minutes later, a free kick by José Sanchis was launched but he narrowly missed. On the part of the visitors they tried it with a Rubén center but it went out and in a shot by Michael after a center that took it well under Carlos. After more minutes passed, the locals had an opportunity, in a Luis Vidal center that Andreu Butiñà finished off and caught Óscar. Before the break, Enguera had it in a David Perales cross that Zhivko finished off and went off the ball.

The following forty-five minutes were of visiting domain, with the occasional interruption due to fouls where the locals defended themselves well. As soon as he resumed, he had it for the locals Muñoz in a shot but went outside. In the 23rd minute CD Llosa again claimed a penalty for possible hands, and against Enguera through Landete he went alone against Carlos and the shot crashed into the crossbar. The rejection of this play was finished off by Serrano’s head, who missed an empty goal by sending out.

Alberto Simón also had it at point-blank but he deflected it with a magnificent intervention. In the 75th minute, the local goalkeeper Carlos was sent off when he saw the second yellow card when he played the referee who lost time. After this and with one less player the visitors tried it with a shot by Raúl that cleared the local defense. In the last minutes for the visitors Pedro Revert looked for him, but he pointed out the offside despite the protests from visiting fans. Already in the discount Llosa tried it on a shot by Álex Albert but the shot went out.

Highlight the good influx of public in the stands due to the geographical proximity of both clubs. After this victory, those of Rafi Bañón continue bottom with fifteen points and the next day they will visit El Infantil to face the Sueca. While those of Paco Martínez are second to last with nineteen points and next week they receive Jávea at Villa de Enguera.

Cd Llosa draw

Draw one in a game from the bottom of the table that does not serve to please any team.

The CD Llosa came to this day located in the last place in the standings with 16 points after tying one last day against SD Sueca. For its part, Alcàsser CF was sixteenth with 22 points after being thrashed 0-6 last day against Muro CF.

The local team was the one that went looking for the rival goal from the first minute with Claudio scissors, which was deflected by Enrique’s left post. As the minutes passed, the forces were equalized, but without any clear occasion appearing in the two goals.

Live score for  second half continued tough on the part of the with a very direct game, but with the defenses prevailing to the attacks. However, Muñoz was able to make it 1-0 after a great cross from Guillem, but the ball didn’t catch the door. At times, the locals turned to the rival goal, but the lack of effectiveness condemned them. In the final minutes, the match got out of control. It became a roadblock, but the effectiveness was nil. Seven minutes from the end, Andoni penalized Abarca. The same striker converted him to overtake Alcàsser (0-1). In the eighty-ninth, Muñoz headed a ball to bite Enrique and make it 1-1.

After this result, CD Llosa will remain bottom with 17 points to have to visit the next day at UD Alginet. Meanwhile, Alcàsser CF will ascend to fifteenth place to place themselves with 23 points and receive CD Jávea on the following day.
