Champions League Round of 16: Lionel Messi, Cristian Romero eliminated


The Champions League Round of 16 continued this week and two Argentine players have been eliminated.

Nicolás Otamendi and Enzo Fernández both qualified for the quarter finals with their respective teams. Enzo’s current club Chelsea and his former club Benfica will both play in the quarter finals.

Lionel Messi and Cristian Romero were not so lucky. PSG lost their opening leg 1-0 in Paris and the second match 2-0 win Germany.

The reigning Ligue 1 champions have been eliminated and so are Cristian Romero’s Tottenham Hotspur. But for Romero, it was an elimination and a red card.

He would get two yellow cards and was sent off in Tottenham’s 0-0 draw and elimination vs. AC Milan.
