Lucas ALARIO gives Bayer Leverkusen win against Schalke


Lucas ALARIO scored the match winner for Bayer Leverkusen in their 2-1 victory against Schalke.

Former Argentina man has not had the best of beginnings to his European club career. Despite scoring 9 goals in 23 games last season in the Bundesliga, his strike against Schalke was only his second of the Bundesliga season in 13 matches.

With the score at 1-0, ALARIO received the ball near the edge of the penalty area, flicked it around the defender and scored.


  1. This is a post of mine from May:

    Not only the players you mentioned.
    we even gave other countries Legends.

    – In 1930 we went to the Finals next time some of our players that were there played for Italy and became 2 times Champions.
    – The Legendary La Maquina by River and Labruna, Moreno, Munoz, Padernera, Loustau inspired the Dutch Total Football.
    – Alberto di Stefano A top 5 player of all time if he only had the World cup would be ranked with Maradona and some do it anyway.
    he won the Copa with Argentina in 1947 scoring 6 golas in 6 matches and Argentina refused to participate in 1950 where he could have won us the World cup, he never played for Argentina again.
    it’s so sad for us. he played for Spain.
    – Sivori a Juve legend, Maschio, Angellilo “the dirty faces” who won the 1957 Copa moved to Italy and were banned by our AFA to play for Argentina so missed the 1958 World cup.
    Again missing a chance – self inflicting pain. They played for Italy later on.
    – 78 Menotti left Bochini at home, winner of 5 Copa Libertadores, a time when not all the best players played in Europe. Bilardo corrected the wrong and took him to the World cup 86 to make a wrong right.
    – Ramon Diaz in 90, we chose to let him at home but we missed him in the final.
    and in recent times we all know what happened.

    How we played in 2006, our style was copied and teams won Champions leagues and World Cups with it.
    Our History is rich like no other team, because our brand of football was taken copied and people won titles with it.
    We could have had more Titles if it weren’t for some egoistical people, and people supporting them.
    We have Legends and we will always produce legends that is what I guarantee you, but winning titles I don’t guarantee because ego is always above our team, and we lack managing, administrating, and coaching. Those things as proven in this post have held us down and continue to hold us down.
    2 World Cups, we could have won at least 4.”

  2. Angel Dimaria is man utd’s first target in january transfer window.
    He can shine there last time he joined , things was completely different.
    Angel Di Maria came to United with huge fanfare and was given the Number 7 jersey to take the attacking legacy forward. He was well suited for the jersey which he got and gave some amazing performances when he started in the premier league.

    Louis Van Gaal , the manager who was aptly signed by United back then after the club fired David Moyes , wanted more passing game from the team. His style of play didn’t suit many players and there was huge discontentment among the players in the dressing room for the tactics he implied.

    Di Maria was more of an attacking player who loved to run freely on the wings and give breathtaking passes and crosses. He was brought by United to strengthen United’s wing play which lacked pace and quality back then. He was happy and gave his best when he used to start matches for United and even scored goals from freekicks.

    Louis Van Gaal wanted him and the team to play more passing game and wanted the team to pass and take the ball forward , rather than running through the wings and putting in crosses which United have always been known and feared for. Not just Di Maria , he put Blind ( left back ) infront of his defenders too and made him play as a defensive midfielder protecting his back line. Slowly and gradually , United’s performances started to dip and there were more passes backwards than forward.Even when the team was 2–0 down , United didn’t attack enough and passed ball a lot more times to defenders and the goal keeper.

    Van Gaal wanted Di maria to adapt to his ideology and play as per his tactics. He was made to play as a left midfielder and was asked to give more through balls and short passes to his team mates. This wasn’t his forte but he tried adapting to this too. When he didn’t fare well in matches and confronted Van Gaal about his situation and the style of football he wanted to play , Van Gaal had a rift with him and started keeping him on bench as he wasn’t ready to conform to manager’s ideology.

    Can you imagine a player like Di Maria in your side being benched?

    Ed Woodwards , Van Gaal and Di Maria came to a decision to let Di Maria leave if the offer was good and then PSG came knocking with money in their hands.

    He went to Paris and is back to his previous form and is giving amazing performances for his teams.This was one of the biggest mistakes of Van Gaal era and United’s management.If he would’ve stayed , Mourinho would use him in every match these days and he would definitely be among the best wingers of United till date.
    Jose mourinho himself acceped , i was manager i would not have sold dimaria never.
