A new weekend was spent with Argentine players playing football in Europe and with the presence of Franco Armani in the Super classic between Boca and River in the Bombonera, then Lionel Scalloni continue to take note of the formation of the list of 26 Argentine footballers who will go to Qatar 2022.

Without football in England due to the death of the Queen Elizabeth II, “Dibu” Martínez, “Cuti” Romero, Lisandro Martínez, Alexis Mac Allister and Julián Álvarez they have not added minutes for the Premier League.

However, there has been action in the other four major European leagues and, of course, in the Professional football championship. How did the Scaloneta players who dream of the World Cup fare? The abstract, in a new edition of Scaloni Bulletin.

the one for one

All eyes were on the Superclásico and there it was Franco Armani. Despite dragging a small tear in the groin, the goalkeeper He strove to be in the biggest match of the year and had a good performance, even though he was only asked twice. First, a save on a powerful shot by Pol Fernández; afterwards, he was not responsible for Darío Benedetto’s goal.

In Europe, with no outstanding performances, the highlight of the weekend was what Atlético Madrid players left behind. Nahuel Molina, Rodrigo DePaul and Angel Correa they scored the goal with which Colchonero opened the score against Celta de Vigo.

De Paul scored a goal and assisted, Correa scored and was chosen as the pitch figure, while Molina had interesting offensive forays and completed the 90 minutes for Cholo Simeone’s team, who beat 4- 1 the team of Chacho Coudet.

Other outstanding performances were Lionel Messi, in his new role as assistant. His passing on Neymar’s goal, the one who gave PSG the least victory, made it the player with the most assists in the current Ligue 1: has reached seven in the same number of games played. The Brazilian has seconded him in this statistic with six and is the top scorer with eight goals.

It has also been noticed on the net Luca Martinez Quarta. Fiorentina opened the score against Bologna, but his team ended up losing 2-1. Fight hand-in-hand for a place in the World Cup with German Pezzella, who had a weak performance, beyond Betis’ triumph against Villarreal.

In that same meeting, one of the figures was Guido Rodriguez, a man who continues to be fundamental in the structure of Ingeniero Pellegrini and gives confidence to the DT on the pitch. On the side of the Yellow Submarine, good performance of Geronimo Rulli (received his first goal in five La Liga games) e Giovanni Lo Celsothe best of his team.

In the position of center forward, there seems to be no doubt Lautaro Martinez, not only that he will be in Qatar, but that he will begin his World Cup debut against Saudi Arabia. El Toro does not find the goal, but makes good interventions, throwing himself back in the pivot and thus trying to break the iron defensive structure of Turin. They do it just in the 89th minute thanks to a goal from Marcelo Brozovic.

It remains to be seen who will be the alternatives of the former Racing for the World Championship. They appear on the radar Correa, Lucas Alario Y Giovanni Simeone. In this respect, the winner of the weekend was clearly Ángel, who played his best game of the season.

The other three entered the bank in their respective commitments. Alario, who entered the field regularly at Eintracht Frankfurt, has not been called up for the friendlies with Honduras and Jamaica and appears to be running from behind. He entered in the 63rd minute for Rafael Santos Borré and had little participation in the game.

Simeone, for his part he is well placed in the consideration of Spalletti, who is taking him little by little to get the best fit for his new team. He came from the transformation of Liverpool in the Champions League, but he did not get wet, despite his mobility between the center of La Spezia.

Joaquin Correa Similar situation too, well regarded by Simone Inzaghi and alternated in the starting lineup with Edin Dzeko as a companion of Lautaro. On Saturday, against Torino, he entered in the 67th minute in place of the Bosnian and was unable to gravitate.

Another position that the national team coach has yet to define is that of the third goalkeeper. Whenever Dibu Martínez could not be there, the owner was Armani, so it is clear that he will be in the World Cup. After, Giovanni Musso Y Geronimo Rulli They fight for a place. Beyond the individual performances, which are very good in both cases, the final decision will go through the personal taste of the DT. There are no big differences between one and the other.

They also compete for a seat Exequiel Palacios Y Enzo Fernandez and that of Benfica begins to take advantage. Once again a starter in the Portuguese team, he amazes for his huge array: he scores, plays and arrives at goal. Bayer Leverkusen, on the other hand, suffers from the bad present of his team, which is in the relegation zone. At 40 ‘he went out as a precaution due to a pain in his right hamstring.

Behind both stands Lucas Ocampos, who begins to add his first minutes to Ajax. Against Heerenveen he entered in the 71st minute, with the game already defined, and was important in controlling the game of the Dutch giant, who beat 5-0 and marched with the ideal score after six dates.

Four permanent names inside Qatar 2022, four items in Scaloni’s notebook. Leandro Paredes shines in the 2-2 between Juventus and Salernitana, hitting 83 passes out of 85, while the negative note was given by Marco Acuna, who was booked for committing a penalty and was substituted at half-time.

Also, Nicola Tagliafico Y Nicola Otamendi have completed 90 minutes in their respective matches and continue their preparation for the big goal of the year, the World Cup in Qatar.

This Monday, at 3.45 pm, Paulo Dybala’s Roma visits Empoli. And the Cordoba man continued to do his homework with a big left that paved the way for Mourinho’s team to win. La Joya continues to repay the Portuguese’s confidence and, with a good start to the season, scores an extra bean for Qatar.

those who have not played

Whether due to injury or tactical decision by their coaches, as well as being interrupted by a Premier League duel, others who have not added minutes have beenGonzalo Montiel, Juan Foyth, Papu Gómez, Nicolás González and Ángel Di María.
