Spare a thought for Real Madrid full-back Marcelo after his horror training session on Tuesday. There was no injury, and he will probably still get into the starting eleven for his side’s Champions League semi-final first leg clash against Bayern Munich tonight.

Despite being 35-years-old and in the twilight years of his career, Juan Roman Riquelme is still doing it for Boca Juniors.
