Featuring between the sticks on Tuesday evening will be Roberto Abbondanzieri. The legendary keeper, renowned for his sharp reflexes, won six domestic league titles and nine international trophies in the blue and yellow of Boca Juniors, including three Copa Libertadores and two Intercontinental Cups.
In the latter of these tournaments, ‘El Pato’ starred in his side’s win on penalties over Milan in 2003, saving spot-kicks from Andrea Pirlo and Alessandro Costacurta in the process. The 43-year-old was later named the best South American keeper of the year.
In between his two spells in Buenos Aires, Abbondanzieri enjoyed a fruitful two-and-a-half seasons with Spanish outfit Getafe. His first year at the club saw him claim the Ricardo Zamora Trophy for conceding the least amount of goals in La Liga.
In fitting fashion, El Pato ended his career with another trophy, this time in the colours of Brazilian outfit Internacional, where he got his hands on his fourth Copa Libertadores a decade after winning his first for Boca Juniors.
