Tevez & Javier The Star In El Classico

English Premier League

Liverpool 0 Manchester United 1

For both Javier MASCHERANO and Carlos TEVEZ, this wasn’t something new for them as both of them have squared off in a match of such intensity during their times at River and Boca respectively.

For me it was not the about the result but the presence of both players doing their thing that made it even more special for me.

In Asia, the EPL is widely follow as if it was their own adopted domestic league and perhaps by viewing these guys they will one day become newly converts of Albiceleste lovers just like you and me
And without a doubt it was Carlos TEVEZ who made the difference of the day. United scored when Ryan GIGGS sent a corner along the ground to Wayne ROONEY, who was unmarked on the edge of the penalty area. He passed to TEVEZ, who knocked the ball into the roof of the net.

Liverpool inability to score was a clear factor that the likes Fernando TORRES, Dirk KUYT, Peter CROUCH and Ryan BABEL are nowhere in the class of Carlitos finishing.
And I dare to say this that United inability to score more goals was clear justification that Javier MASCHERANO warrior like performance was a menace for the likes of ANDERSON and Cristiano RONALDO.

It was an El Classico derby made in England but modified by the typical finishing and tackling from Argentina.

Italian Serie A

Cagliari 0 Inter Milan 2

Another match and another goal for the man himself.

Inter without the injured Zlatan IBRAHIMOVIC had no problem seeing off Cagliari with two second-half goals.
Julio CRUZ who partner up front with Hernan CRESPO was among the goal scorer of the night. Walter SAMUEL, Javier ZANETTI & Esteban CAMBIASSO were in the starting line up.

Diego MILITO scored in the 17th minute to put ZARAGOZA in the lead and Fabricio COLOCCINI equalized for Deportivo in the 53rd minute.

Two goals from Mariano PAVONE in the 51st and 83rd minute helps Betis to a convincing victory over Almeria.

Valladolid 0 FC Seville 0

Federico FAZIO alongside with Luis FABIANO was sent off in this goalless draw encounter.
