Usually on a Monday we’re able to bring you match highlights of Leo Messi’s performance at the weekend. Unsurprisingly, after Messi’s Barca fell to their first defeat of the season at the weekend, no such videos are forthcoming. With that being the case, we can turn to a more triumphant Argentine from the weekend’s action in Spain as we focus on Atletico Madrid’s forward Kun Aguero.
Aguero has long been touted as the leader of Argentina’s next generation of superstars, but against all the hype Maradona’s son-in-law has struggled to find top form this season at Atleti. On Sunday night against the Catalans Kun was again playing second fiddle to lead striker Diego Forlan, as Sergio struggled to find his rhythm and scoring accuracy.
Repeatedly Aguero managed to get the better of the Barca defence, only to find himself one-on-one with Victor Valdes before seeing the keeper smother his shots. On another day Aguero could have hit a hat-trick, but as it turned out on the night he failed to find the net at all. In truth, he finishing against Barcelona was well below-par.
With 12 goals in 27 games this season, it’s easy to forget though that Ageuro is just 21-years-old and with time on his side to continue his development.
