  1. Well, there wont be many Argentines left in the quarters…
    – Aguero and Otamendi will destroy Di Santo and Schalke.
    – Correa’s time in the Champions league is done this season, as Atletico will meet their champions league kriptonite… Ronaldo!!!!
    – United are lucky to have made it this far… but their luck will soon run out.
    – Lamela, Foyth, Gazzaniga & Tottenham are lucky to even be here, had Barce not gone so easy on them… But Dortmund won’t go easy on them, so they’re good as out already.
    – Lyon vs Barcelona? C’mon… it’s Messi!
    – Roma vs Porto… who cares?!
    – Never count out Real Madrid… especially in the Champions.
    – Liverpool vs. Bayern… no Argentine’s=don’t care!

    Overall, Messi, Aguero, Otamendi, Dybala, and Di Maria will be left.
    Funny enough, all of them should be in the Copa next year too.

    In europa league im rooting for betis cause of lo celso,zenit cause of paredes,villareal cause of caseres

      • If Ronaldo is stripped off his CL goals, he’s just another Lukaku. He is no more under Florentino Perez’s protection. Kick him hard Atletico 😂

      • Jokes aside, it’s hard to swallow that people compare him with Messi just because of his goals. The media campaign in favor of Ronaldo was almost unbearable.

        • Anyone who is honest know
          That there is not player come
          close to messi
          I always say Ronaldo doesn’t belong
          Same category as messi
          It has been unfair to compare
          Each other cose messi is the
          Best footballer I have ever seen
          In my life.
          Even if wasn’t supporting
          Argentina I would have say that.

          • True that. Messi is also the best gift I have ever got from Argentina. The second best thing is the tenure of Alejandro Sabella. Maybe after we win the next wc, I will place it on top of my list and move Messi to the second spot. Idk!
