Scrappy win, even with the ref being absolutely awful. Garay and Otamendi for sure can grow into a very strong duo in the back. Zabaleta was definitely an improvement over Roncaglia but that really isn't saying much. Rojo as a center back is good but out wide just doesn't work. What we really need is another Juan Pablo Sorin type player to help link up the defense with the attack. Currently it's not happening and while Mascherano is defending like a machine his contributions going forward are nowhere near as good as they were in the WC. Pastore was very good in my opinion Biglia as well. Di Maria was pretty awful in my opinion. I loved Kun's work rate and the goal was very well executed. Messi was also very good and considering how much went through him man of the match was justified. For the subs, not sold on the timing of when Banega came in, his passing seemed soft and sloppy. Pereyra came on too late and was a wasted sub. Tevez in very short minutes almost set one up for Messi, he also looked for Messi with nearly all his touches. I'd like to see how Messi and Tevez can link up with more minutes on the field together. I'd keep Kun as long as he's fit and working how he is. Lavezzi for Di Maria is the other change I'd make. Love Di Maria but he just hasn't impressed consistently enough since returning from his WC injury.
