Estudiantes Vs Defensor Sporting - The only Argentinian team left in the Copa Libertadores

Tomorrow, Estudiantes led by the legendary Juan Sebastian Veron, will fight it out in the quarterfinals of the Copa Libertadores against the Uruguayian team, Defensor Sporting. Estudiantes, currently in sixth place of Argentina's first division managed to stay alive in this popular south American cup.

The team's most accomplished player, Juan Sebastian Veron has been on top of his game since his return to Argentina in 2006. This led Maradona to add him to the national team at the age of 34. In addition to Veron, they also have the national team's goalie, Mariano Andujar. This will probably be his last appearance for the team before he goes off to his new team, Catania in Italy's Serie A. There is also the defender, Marcos Angeleri who is also part of Maradona's top picks. As for their striking power, they have Mauro Boselli who is their top scorer this year with 8 goals / 1 assist.
