8/25/09: Why We Will Win Concacaf Champions League Summed Up In Three Initials.


"I play international tournaments to win, no matter who, no matter where, no matter what."

In a round of 16 Copa Libertadores match against Paysandu of Brazil in 2003, Boca Juniors lost in the home leg of the contest 1-0. Going to Paysandu things didn't look good for Boca. But, Guillermo Barros Schelotto lifted his side and led Boca Juniors with a hat trick and an assist on Marcelo Delgado's goal to win the away leg 4-1, and advance to the round of 8 4-2 on aggregate.

Boca Juniors would go on to win the Copa Libertadores and the Argentinian League that year thanks to the exploits of Guillermo Barros Schelotto.

That's only the middle of GBS's long history of exploits in international tournaments:

A history that continues tomorrow with Guillermo Barros Schelotto scoring in Mexico. I'll bet on it.
