Just like the UEFA Champions League, the other continental competition, the Europa League will guarantee to see an Albiceleste player lifting that trophy.
Juventus (who trailing 1-2 from the 1st leg), led by Carlos TEVEZ in the attack weren’t able to break Benfica defense marshal Ezequiel GARAY. In the end, a 0-0 draw was enough to see the Eagles from Portugal breaking the home supoorters heart of seeing their team playing in the Final on home soil.
However there were some unfortunate moments involving the Albiceleste players during the game. Enzo PEREZ was sent off in the 67th minute for committing a foul on Stephan LICHTSTEINER thus won’t be featruting in the Final. Also joining him in the suspension list is Eduardo SALVIO (who came in the 78th minute for Nicolas GAITAN), after picking a yellow card in injury time.
And the worrying part was when GARAY was stretched off in injury time for a taking a boot courtesy of Paul POGBA overhead kick.
Not sure to what extent the serious of he’s injury is, but maybe this selfie could explain that.
Not to forget, also attending the match was non-other than Diego MARADONA who apparently was present courtesy of invitation from Carlos TEVEZ.
Joining them in the Final are Federico FAZIO and Nicolas PAREJA, after a goal in the dying minutes from Sevilla broke the heart of Valencia who overturn a two goal deficit from the 1st leg to take a 3-0 lead. Pablo PIATTI was a starter but was substitute in the 61st minute for Federico CARTABIA.
