MESSI, MILITO and LOPEZ with crucial goals

Lisandro is not in the list for the upcoming Argentina friendlies, but out of these three players that are regularely in our national team radar, he scored the most significant goals this weekend.

FC Porto needed a win to secure their second Portuguese league title in a row (22nd of their history) and after a 1-1 first half against Aves, Lisandro LOPEZ scored Porto's second from outside the box and, with one minute to go, he added another one to wrap up the score 4-1 and secure the title for his club (where Lucho GONZALEZ is also a key player).

Vamos Lisandro! Vamos Lucho! Well done on winning the Portuguese league for two years in a row.

Just like Lisandro, another former Racing Club player, Diego MILITO, opened the scoresheet as Zaragoza increased the relegation fears for Athletic Bilbao in the Spanish league.

MILITO scored with a great strike from the right and showed his team the way to a 4-3 victory. It looked easy in the first half (4-1), but Zaragoza, where Gabriel MILITO, Pablo AIMAR (players that are also in the squad for Argentina's June friendlies) and Andrés D'ALESSANDRO took part, ended the game under pressure.

Zaragoza now are in great position to secure a UEFA Cup berth for the next season and they still dream of reaching Champions League places.

After a couple of very difficult weeks and with Real Madrid winning two consecutive matches in the 90th minute, it was a real test for FC Barcelona to visit Atletico de Madrid and being forced to get a win to stay alive in the race for La Liga title. was hardly a test as the Blaugranas destroyed Atletico 6-0 at the Vicente Calderón Stadium. Lionel MESSI drew first blood and then added another (5-0) to confirm he is in great shape and will be ready to push for a starting place in COCO's team in time to face Switzerland.

Another Argie goal in Spain came from former National Team player Gustavo LOPEZ. But his team, Celta de Vigo, lost 3-1 at San Sebastián against Real Sociedad and are still in the relegation red zone.

Congratulations to Lisandro, Diego and Lionel!

Great performance from our players in Spain and Portugal. It would have been much better if Gabriel HEINZE had lifted the FA Cup. Nevertheless he is still the Champion of England
