Maxi Rescues A Point For Atletico

Well it was nice to see the mixed review that we’re getting from the latest list for our next month’s World Cup Qualifier. Do keep them coming as there will be plenty of updates coming in the week ahead. For now, back to the European League fixtures on Saturday.

Diego MILITO could not increase his tally for Inter as they suffered a 0-1 loss to Sampdoria. Lionel MESSI had a nice assist for Zlatan IBRAHIMOVIC in Barcelona’s 2-0 win over Malaga. Which means……

Surprise! Surprise!

It was Kun AGUERO and Maxi RODRIGUEZ, two players that had different fortune for the National Team that got the spotlight as Atletico Madrid manage to salvage a 2-2 draw away to Valencia.

Kun gave the visiting team the lead but Valencia equalize through Pablo courtesy of a nice assist from the Ever improving BANEGA. The home side took the lead before half time through David VILLA. Just as when Los Che looks set to collect full three point, Maxi came to the rescue for Atletico with a volley at the far post.

Another last minute hero was Gonzalo BERGESSIO as he scored the late winner for St Etienne in their 2-1 win over Monaco. It was his first start for the Les Verts and that goal takes his tally to 2 goals in 3 matches.
