Happy Birthday Rafa Marquez

Vela is banged up, Chicharito and Jimenez never see the field, Ochoa has not played a league game but there are other players to watch this weekend.


1:00pm- PSV v AZ Alkmaar– El Principito is back and will start this game.

1:45PM- Real Sociedad v Almeria– Carlitos is still out and will likely miss the March FIFA date.

2:30PM-FC Porto v Guimares–  Diego Reyes has been left out of the call up sheet but look for Herrera to feature in this match.



9:00AM- Watford v Bolton– Miguel Layun’s European Adventure is going well and could culminate with a promotion into the EPL.

11:00AM- Real Madrid v Deportivo– Javier Hernandez is hoping he sees the field, almost as much as Piojo.

3:00PM- Espanyol v Malaga–  Hector Moreno is now consistently playing big minutes for his club team and its only a matter of time until he does that for his national team.



8:00AM- Hellas Verona v Genoa– If there is one thing true this season, it is that Hellas will have one Rafa Marque(z/s) in their starting lineup.

9:45AM- FC Twente v Ajax– This will be a tough match up for  Tecatito’s Twente but they need to get something from this game if they want to compete for a Europe League spot.

11:00AM- Vitoria v Benfica– Facing one of the Portuguese giants is never easy for a small club, hopefully Uli gets more minutes.

12:00PM- Rayo Vallecano v Villarreal– El Submarino Amarillo will lean hard on Jona as Bruno will be out for a while. Jona has shown to be a player who can be counted on this season. His brother is slowly rounding into form. I am not sure if Aquino can play due to him going up against his parent club.

2:00Pm- Atletico Madrid v  Celta Vigo– Jimenez has not scored a goal since September. While Cholo has said all the right things, Raul needs to reward his manager’s patience.
