      With the eagerly awaited Champions League knockout round looming large, this week’s Talent Track update suitably has a distinctly European feel

      Bearing in mind the domestic theme of last week’s Talent Track report and the impending resumption of Champions League action, it seemed appropriate that the latest edition of Juventus.com’s round-up of the fortunes of the club’s loan players should have a more European edge.

      The Talent Track tour this time kicks off in France with Mauricio Isla’s Europa League-chasing Marseille, heads north to Holland to check in on midfielder Ouasim Bouy before returning home for news on Rimini goalkeeper Francesco Anacoura. 

      Beginning at Nice’s Allianz Riviera, last night was to be a particularly fruitful one for Chilean international Isla if not for his Marseille side, held to a 1-1 draw by southern neighbours Nice, five points clear of l’OM in third place.

      While Isla’s first-half header from Romain Alessandrini’s right-wing cross would give the visitors the lead on Sunday evening, it would not be enough to send them home with all three points, Valere Germain tapping home from close range just before the hour mark to earn a share of the spoils. 

      It was an entirely different story meanwhile for Eredivise outfit PEC Zwolle and Dutch midfielder Bouy, registering an impressive 3-1 home win over sixth-placed Feyenoord at the IJsseldelta Stadion.

      Not for the first time this season, Bouy was instrumental in the middle of the park in what is fast becoming a very promising season for the 22-year old who has made 16 first-team appearances and scored once for his new club since arriving in the summer.

      Returning closer to home, goalkeeper Anacoura was also on the winning side over the weekend as a string of fine saves in the Rimini goal laid the foundations for a 2-0 win over Robur Siena in Italy’s Lega Pro, the third tier of the country’s footballing pyramid.
