Europa League Semi-Final

The Europa League semi-finals get under way today. In Madrid, Atletico will face off against Liverpool in their first-leg match up.

el Kun Aguero is suspended because of yellow card accumulation. Salvio will be on the Atletico bench.

Mascherano and Insua will be in Liverpool’s starting eleven.

Any thoughts on the game?

    lets hope its a great match, unfortunate kun is not on, and i really feel bad for salvio, he barely gets any minutes to play..

    I have a feeling Liverpool will win..

    here’s a question i’ve been meaning to ask you.. why is it that maxi plays certain matches and others he doesn’t ?!?
    for example in this case, he wont play the Europa league.

    Maxi played in Europa League games this season with Atletico making him ineligible to play for Liverpool in the tournament.

    Insua is injured and might not play again this season. He has not featured for a few weeks now sadly.

    Shame Maxi is cuptied, really playing well lately and I feel trying his best to push for a place in teh final 22, however sifficult it will be for him to get there.

    Have to say though, I love Mascherano more every time I see him. He always says the right things for me when it comes to both club and country, he should be Liverpool captain, and if theres anyone I would like to see lift a World Cup trophy its that man.

    As for tonights game, I just hope Liverpool get a goal. If we get a goal and win thats just fantastic, a score draw is superb, even a 2-1 or 3-2 defeat and Ill be confident of progression.

    Game on!!!

    Hmmm, the Argentine media has not reported anything about an injury.

    All the reports said that Insua was playing today.

    Very dull first half that. Liverpool cant get much going and Atleti look ordinary as well.

    Yeah, as for Insua he hasnt played for a couple of weeks now, Liverpool have been playing central defender Agger at left back – Maradaons would be proud lol!! He is doubtful to kick a ball again this season, so highly unlikely now he could make the final 22, not that it looked likely anyway.

  8. pintadoazulblanco says:

    Too bad about Insua but like you said, he would not have made the WC squad anyway.

    Instead, we’ll have the pleasure of seeing Heinze playing in the WC.

    I just read an article that said the Team took about 24 hours to get to Madrid, maybe they’re tired !?!

    It’s unbelievable all the havoc caused by that volcano.
