Santiago Solari has decided to leave Mariano Diaz and Sergio Reguilon from his 18-man squad for the Copa del Rey semifinal in Real Madrid’s first leg against Barcelona on Wednesday night.
This means that Isco has made its way into the bank, leaving Argentina with a lot of firepower in reserve.
The midfielder joins Gareth Bale and Marco Asensio, as well as Nacho, Dani Ceballos, Casemiro and Thibaut Courtois.
As such, Nacho is the only defender to come into the world with Marcelo, since the Copa del Rey is “his” competition.
For Mariano, however, could not enter the competition for this illustrious draw, despite the 3-0 win against Alaves last Sunday.
