A total of eight Argentine players could take part in this week’s Champions League coaches.
Diego Simeone has a difficult fixture when they play Chelsea in Romania due to COVID restrictions. Angel Correa is the only Argentine on that team as back up goalkeeper Willy Caballero won’t be starting for Chelsea.
Lazio have the most Argentine representatives with three as Joaquin Correa, Gonzalo Escalante and newly signed Mateo Musacchio host Champions League winners Bayern Munich.
On Wednesday, Jose Palomino and Cristian Romero will try to shut down Real Madrid as they will look to build off last season’s competition where they made it to the quarter finals.
Sergio Aguero will try to get some minutes as Manchester City travel to Germany to play Borussia Monchengladbach.

Atletico Madrid (Angel Correa) vs. Chelsea (Willy Caballero)
