Rodrigo hits the woodwork at the 2nd minute of game and there's a handball in the Basel box at the 16th minute, could have been up by a few by now.

Is he actually playing good btw? besides the goals.

I mean could you guys see him turning out to something? haven't seen him play for you yet.

Don't waste your time on jealously; sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind.

The race is long, and in the end - it's only with yourself.

He moves well around the box and can go out to the wing, perfect match for Gaitan, Bruno Cesar and Nolito. If our coach started him it's because he's showing to be worthy in practice.

1-1, game tied, Basel had some chances before so pretty fair result since we missed our chances.

im still trying to understand why was miguel victor subbed in

poor 2nd half, for both teams actually, even if we had better chances to score ( rodrigo's miss was simply frustrating)

we simply can't fall asleep like we did , bad things happen

Because the kid looked 100% unprepared to be playing top level futebol?

The mistake was that Vitor didn't start.

The team lost its focus after the hot start. Too much bitching with the refs.
