Manchester City and RB Leipzig played the most thrilling game to open up the 2021-22 Champions League season with a nine-goal thriller that saw City win 6-3. American fans won’t want to talk about the Jack Grealish vs Tyler Adams moment for City’s fourth goal.

Con Johan Vásquez Esto No Pasaba: Inter Golea Al Genoa En El Inicio De La Serie A

Genoa, el nuevo equipo de Johan Vásquez, fue básicamente convertido en cenizas en su visita al Inter de Milán, en el inicio de la Serie A 2021-22. El cuadro rossoblú cayó 4-0 ante el actual campeón de la liga, en un partido en el que mostró serios problemas defensivos.

¿Dónde estaba Vásquez? Como el ex Pumas llegó hace menos de 10 días, el técnico Davide Ballardi decidió no convocarlo, mientras se adapta al equipo. Sin embargo, en vista de la goleada sufrida no sería raro que apure su puesta en forma para tenerlo disponible en la próxima jornada.
