The draw for the quarterfinals stage of the Europa League was also held today.
Plenty of Argentine players involved in this tournament as well.
Valencia will unfortunately be without Ever Banega for both legs against Sergio Aguero’s Atletico de Madrid because Banega was suspended due to a red card that he received in the previous round of the tournament.
Aimar, Saviola, Di Maria’s Benfica will play against Mascherano, Insua and Maxi Rodriguez’s Liverpool.
I’m starting to wonder if its a good thing that so many Argentine players that will be in the WC squad and others that may make the WC squad are playing so many games deep into the season with the start of the World Cup so close.
Let’s hope that no serious injuries occur to any of our players.
Let’s also hope that our European based players will have lots of strength and energy left for the World Cup.
