Mauro ICARDI, Gonzalo HIGUAIN and more score in Serie A

Mauro ICARDI, Gonzalo HIGUAIN, Giovanni SIMEONE and Lucas BIGLIA all scored in Serie A this weekend.

Two of Serie A’s most prominent forwards scored on the weekend. That is to say Mauro ICARDI, Gonzalo HIGUAIN. One starts for the Argentina National Team while the other isn’t even on the team. Beginning with the one who is not on the team, Mauro ICARDI scored his first goal in the Milan derby as the match ended in a 2-2 draw.

The other forward, Gonzalo HIGUAIN, scored twice for Juventus in their 2-0 win against Pescara. The two goals brought his scoring tally to 23 goals in the league. While he continues to fail Juventus in their Champions League matches, he continues to impress in the league.

However, it wasn’t all positive for Juventus as their star jewel Paulo DYBALA got an ankle injury and is a doubt for their Champions League clash against Barcelona.

It was Genoa hosting Lazio with a goal from Giovanni SIMEONE and Lucas BIGLIA. SIMEONE’s goal was number 11 of the season for him as the match ended in a 2-2 draw.

    Got it for you gonzalo ! Checkout how beautiful the buildup play is 🙂

    1. Gonzalo

      Thank you very much, brother. That is true. 2 really collectively scored goals.

      I’m complaining how many potentially better players Ubeda omitted. Players that are playing in Primera not reserve league. But:

      Maybe he prefers to have even the less talented/experienced players that are at the disposal (as reserve league players) to train together for few weeks/months and find good collective and chemistry.
      Players like Sosa, Cardozo (Tigre), Lovera, Rivas (Rosario Central), Maxi Romero, Delgadillo (Velez), Rojas, Senesi (San Lorenzo), Cejas, Cascini (Estudiantes), Vadala (Union), MacAllister (Argentinos), Borgnino, Martino (Rafaela), Brunetta (Arsenal), Messidoro (SPort Boys), Sandoval (Colon), Andereggen (Union), Troyansky (Olimpo) – they have more minutes and goals (e.g. Martino and Brunetta scored last week in Primera) in first league at all than current Ubeda youngsters and even if they are available for WC only they are not available now for few weeks to work together and made real team. Just because they are more or less at the service of their clubs.

      Chemistry and understanding is more important than names so maybe there sense in choices of Ubada (I don’t understand only exclusion of Pereyra because he is not working with 1st Rosario Central team and was so good on Sudamericano). But what when Ascacibar, Martinez, Foyth, Rodriguez, Barco, Romero will back? They were not participate in this wins against Uruguay right?. It will be reinforcement or deregulation of this potential chemistry?

        No worries Gonzalo. As you said, there are pros and cons in selecting this team which consist of a mixture of regulars and reserve league players. Im sure the ones who missed out especially ascacibar, martinez, barco and ponce ( wh0 are regulars in their respective teams) would easily slot in and gel later on.

      The shape of the team was just perfect! everybody had specific tasks and made calculated runs.

      Perfect team goals!

      1. Gonzalo

        A bit like Germany or Argentina ’06 against Serbia.
