Sergio AGUERO scored twice for Manchester City in their 7-0 win against Schalke.

For the first time in his career, AGUERO scored in four consecutive Champions League matches. He had previously scored against Hoffenheim, Lyon and the last two matches against Schalke.

AGUERO’s first goal was a penalty, one where he did a panenka and scored. His second was from a very difficult angle. Sergio AGUERO has now scored 5 goals in 5 matches in the Champions League this season.

  1. The only possible reason I believe Aguero was not called up is Man City reaching a deal with AFA to give Aguero a badly needed rest this international break.
    On course of a hat-trick, Guardiola subbed him off with the Swansea match Saturday in mind. Just shows how much he’s prioritizing preserving his players, so the idea is not far fetched.

    That or the rumors of a rift between Scaloni and Aguero could be true, which I find is very childish if it were to be true.

    Overall, we can all agree we need Aguero for this summers Copa America!

    • Well his ‘rival’ – until yesterday – scored a total of 1 goal in 7 games so if that’s enthusiasm then I’m glad Messi is not as enthusiastic otherwise he wouldn’t have 6 goals in 7 games so far. Oh and stop trolling, if you have something constructive to say then by all means otherwise take your leave.

    • Only 65 goals in 128 matches with Argentina, not a single goal at world cup except few group stage goals against minnow sides, failed to impress in all three finals he played, does not want to give up captaincy although he has no quality of a leader, everything is so ordinary with Argentina then why it is crime to criticise Messi in Argentina national team page ? i am Argentina national team fan not a fan of a particular player. Let him do something extra ordinary with Argentina before making him God.

  2. If Aguero is not selected, its obviously not for the sportive reasons.

    I guess scoloni knows that NT can never replicate city playing style and instead of trying Messi Aguero over and over again like the former coaches, he wants to do something else.

    • I don’t think sampaloni knows how to even spell his name let alone get the best out of our attacK. He would be out of his mind not to select Aguero. There really is no sane justification to exclude him.

      • You might disagree with what I think amigo, But I would really like to see how Messi/Benedetto partnership upfront will work for us. I have total respect for Kun and having him in COPA is highly valuable, but as I said I like to see Messi/Benedetto/DiMaria trio next match.

          • It will be buzzling if Aguero is left out of COPA! I have been a fan since his young days at Atletico.
            It is not Aguero vs Benedetto, but to mold a formidable partnership with another striker as an alternative to be thrown against certain teams when they least expect. Some people will not agree, but Benedetto brings a lot of activity to the final third.

    • If Scaloni wants to try something new instead of arrange the attack once again around Messi-Aguero duo that never looked up to the big names expectations – I not only fully understand him but also think these, as a matter of fact, are sprtive reasons of leaving him behind. Taking the individual value of players – then he should be there no doubt… but as I said before:2 big players together not always bring better results than, say, one big one + second of lower class though with better undestanding of each other.

      • If Aguero didn’t have a great WC18, then you may have a point.

        If Aguero didn’t have great Chem with Messi during WC18, then you may have a point.

        However, the entire world saw what i saw and largely agree Aguero did great and had a solid chem with messi during WC18.

        The problem with your comment is that you’re including performances from 2010 or 2014 which are irrelevant because Aguero did well recently.

        > I said before:2 big players together not always bring better results than, say, one big one + second of lower class though with better understanding of each other.

        i agree that 2 big doesn’t always get great results but the same thing is appleid to to 1 big + 1 lower class. Ceteris Paribus – 2 big names will do better.

      • Its been a tried and tired formula for past 10 years. Gosh. But lets try it one more time for the sake of it. Lets hope it works wonder. Aguero is on fire(Well he always has been for his CLUB) But its a far higher level which we cannot ignore. He now realistically is a Ballon D’ Or contender for next year and that’s a huge step forward. So we cant keep him out of the Team.

        • If Manchester City manages to snatch the CL this year, Aguero will win it. and it will be about time that another Argentine wins it.

          • Yupp I would take any Argentine Player winning the Best Player Award(Even if its Joke but it is what it is, like the Oscars) any day.

            PS: I m happy that Luka Modric’s winning turned out to be soap Bubble(Which wont last more than seconds). He wont be probably in the Top 10 next year.(No CL, No La Liga, No Copa Del or the Euro or the WC, Huhu) LOL FIFA fell flat on their face. Now i just want to see CR7 not winning the CL.

  3. Simeone football is too extreme defensive. Griezmann played almost as a DM, too much. I’ve always said that Morata is overrated and Correa should be in the 11 no matter what Coz he is the only one who can break the lines.

    Arrogance Personified…He says no one can take him out had he played 40 games per season, But he is not even have brains to think that why he is not even selected by every club manager in different leagues and different clubs? Why? Because all the coached knows that he is average. Its only because of our past great coaches a guy like Romero an average Goal keeper continued for us for 8 years, 8 Years Damit he played 96 matches of the total 130 Matches Argentina played (He only missed Friendlies for us, And he would have definitely started for us had not for that injury in the 2018 WC ( I wish he had started and retired for good after the Horrendous WC Campaign) And suddenly Romero thinks that he is Oliver Kahn or Gigi Buffon or Neuer or Casillas Damitttt.

    Lets admit it we don’t have any goal keepers which can give the Defence any Confidence.No Wonder Goal keeping position is the most head ache for us. Because none of the other options haven’t even tested at all till now (Only Scaloni had the guts to try new Players, he clearly know that we need a GK with continuous playing time, Its simple Romero is not in an Age in which Training itself is not enough) Goal Keeping is a vital position which can make and break an entire teams confidence with 1 error(Remember Caballero against Croatia, The entire team collapsed against Croatia after that horrendous Blunder)

    Armani – I for one had huge hopes from Armani well recently he looks like doing school boy mistakes and he is not young either.

    Andrada – Was once a wonder boy whom even Barca wanted to take but now i m not sure he and Armani have immense reflexes but not safe Goal Keepers.

    Agustin Marchesin – Not a great one either he is not young too.

    Rulli – Nothing needs to be mentioned he is a lost cause, Now i think its better we forget him and move on he is error prone we cant trust him.

    Benitez – Deserves a chance he is consistent but in French league. But still deserves a chance.

    Juam Musso – Well ate up 4 Goals against a backup Juve side. Not that good either i guess

    Gazzaniga – He looks natural he is tall have right age have huge hopes from him. But he is not doing any favors to himself by playing in a club where he is in bench 99 percent of time.

    How is Ezequel Unsain?? I dont know Who we can pin point and lock on as a Number one who can serve us for some time like Romero did, But No Romero please (Enough for the great services).

    Thats what Scaloni is looking for surely. I m glad that he is. We need a Solid Goal Keeper soon. lets find someone.

    • Keeper has never been an issue for the past decade with Romero in net. Only until dogshit sampa and romeros absence did we suffer.

      > Arrogance Personified…He says no one can take him out had he played 40 games per season, But he is not even have brains to think that why he is not even selected by every club manager in different leagues and different clubs? Why? Because all the coached knows that he is average.

      irrelevant considering he did great for us. Romero is an anomaly in which normal play time hasn’t impacted is his ability for the NT.

      > Its only because of our past great coaches a guy like Romero an average Goal keeper continued for us for 8 years, 8 Years Damit he played 96 matches of the total 130 Matches Argentina played

      Keeper has never been an issue for the past decade with Romero in net.

      > I wish he had started and retired for good after the Horrendous WC Campaign)

      Romero was injured yet he still finds blame.

      > We need a Solid Goal Keeper soon. lets find someone.

      yep, Gazzi, Beneitez, etc are promising. Romero just about done. need one of them to step-up

      • Dude Romero is not been blamed for our WC Debacle, But i can confidently say even if he started we still will not win the Damn WC because he is not a Great GK, An Average GK at best. At least had he played the 2018 WC he would also had retired for good(Look at what is happening now, He thinks he is irreplaceable and that’s the saddest part), In 2014 it was Sabella’s tactics which took us to the WC final(In fact the last Great Coach we had) Don’t make it as like Romero’s heroics took us to 3 Finals dammit. He only saved us in 1 Penalty shootout in Wc but he lost in 2 Other Copa finals. So the Penalty Heroic argument is not Valid.

        I think let Romero play the Copa 2019 and if we don’t win then hopefully his wish for continuing in the NT will be over. I just hope this arrogant guy been replaced by a capable Solid GK which we haven’t had for some years.

  5. Aguero would most likely be in copa 2019 squad he has already played for NT so he wouldnt be needed for friendlies and the only reason Messi is in friendlies because AFA is being offered more money to play Messi and Angel di maria because only Rodrigo de paul and joaquin correa are decent wingers. Argentina need Di maria for atleast for Copa 2019 sice Argentina has scarcity of wingers barring U20 team who all might be tested post Copa friendlies

    • I hope what you are saying about Aguero is true, but I still think Scaloni should have called him for the friendlies, too. The best eleven needs to be finalized before copa, and I dont think only training camps before the tournament can help..

  6. This guy should be starting for us. I don’t post line ups usually but I’d go with
    Aguero
    Lanzini Messi Dybala
    Paredes Lo Celso
    Tagliafico Otamendi Pezella Saravia
    Guzman/Benitez

    Nobody talks about Guzman but the last game he played for the NT he was very solid.
