Nicolas Gonzalez scores penalty for Stuttgart vs. Holstein Kiel


Nicolas Gonzalez scored for Stuttgart in their 3-2 loss vs. Holstein Kiel.

It was 1-0 for Holstein who had taken the lead early in the match. A penalty was awarded to Stuttgart and it was the Argentine who stepped up. Gonzalez would take the pepenalty and score to draw Stuttgart level.

Gonzalez would be substituted off in the second half and Holstein would score two goals in just as many minutes to retake the lead.


  1. Unfortunately the argentine players are less recognised compared to Brazilians, all clubs put the Brazilian players on top of their list for prestige, this is a fact and that’s why the argentine players are desperate to play in Europe and for any European team just to get recognised by Top class teams (that if it happened), the other problem is that the argentine football lacks good players at all positions, the only position that is full of talented players is the forward… less talented in midfield and way less in defence and almost no talents in goalkeeper position .. I believe the argentine football should restructure the talents and start focusing on all positions if they really want to compete whether at national team or at clubs level..

  2. That is at least one Argentine player that is getting playing time, albeit in the 2nd Bundesliga. Ascacibar is injured. Used to be a starter under the previous Hertha coach. Let’s see if he can get back in the team under the new coach.
    Balerdi is given a few minutes per game.
    Alario stayed on the bench.
    Palacios did not make it to the bench.
    New talent emerging from Argentina better think twice before moving to a German club…

    • Yes Bundesliga is very competitive, I saw Bayer played before Palacios joined, their existing midfielders did already good job, very hard for him to win his place. But let’s see, hope that he won’t be one of those talented young players give up too early when they don’t win their starting place in a new club.

      I am quite disappointed for Alario because it seems to me a different problem, their coach prefers false 9 to a more conventional 9. That’s even more unlucky. He was hired to play as striker but his manager just changed his mind on his tactics.
