There is no doubt about this; the Dutch are indeed flying. Van Gaal’s team blew past Estonia 3-0 despite missing some individuals due…
1) Lionel Messi has played approximately 790 minutes of normal time against Italian teams in his career so far, whereas Ronaldo has played a bit more than 1020 minutes up to now.
2) Messi and Ronaldo both faced Italian teams for the first time in the Champions League in 2005. Although he did not score a goal or made an assist, the then-Barcelona starlet enjoyed a 4-1 win over Udinese; while the Manchester United performer underwent a 1-0 loss against Milan, with only 1 shot in the game. Both players were substituted in their respective games minutes after the hour mark.
3) Messi’s first goal against an Italian team came in his sixth meeting, when he entered the scoring sheet against AC Milan on 23 November 2011.

Their league encounter on Sunday ended in a 1-1 draw. Roma took an early through Totti but Inter equalised through Palacio.
Both teams played attacking football but were clueless in front of goal. However, Wednesday's match could be different.
Giallorossi will be without Miralem Pjanic and Rodrigo Taddie because of suspension. Defender Balzaretti and striker Pablo Osvaldo missed training and are doubts for this cup match. Daniel De Rossi picked up a muscle injury on Sunday and he will miss the first-leg.
Anotnio Cassano is still a doubt for the game, while Stankovic and Walter Samuel are injured for Inter Milan.
Roman Abramovich has never hidden his obsession for success.The multi-millionaire sacked FA Cup and UEFA Champions League winner Roberto Di Matteo earlier this season after an unconvincing run – especially in Europe. Jose Mourinho and Avram Grant had gone down the same road previously.
Rafael Benitez was eventually brought in quickly in November 2012 as a short-term replacement. However, the Spaniard has so far struggled to achieve consistency in terms of results on the pitch so it is very unlikely that Chelsea will extend his stay beyond this term.
The Blues are set to announce a new manager this summer and Pep Guardiola tops their coaching list. This week, the former Barcelona manager confirmed that he is nearing a return to football. Meanwhile, Roman Abramovich is working hard to acquire Guardiola’s signature in what would be a dream deal.
In the last part of our ‘2012 in review’ series, we touch on five major things that happened during the last two months of the previous year. Coincidentally, just as it commenced, our ‘2012 in review’ series end with one man – Lionel Messi.
1. Juventus’ 49 match unbeaten record ends
November 3, 2012 – Juventus marvelled crowds as they took the Serie A title away from Milan. Remarkably, they won the Scudetto without losing a single game.
The Milan side has enjoyed a recent mini revival under Massimiliano Allegri after winning their last four league games.
Meanwhile, AS Roma's four match winning run in the league was ended by Cheivo last weekend, when they were defeated 1-0 in a match effected by fog.
The match ended 3-2 in favour of Udinese when we predicted the match to end in a 2-2 draw. It was end-to-end football from Giallorossi, and they squandered a two goal lead, allowing Udinese to come back and win the game.
Roma trail fourth place Inter Milan by seven points in the league, and an away loss against Parma on Wednesday can see them give a leg up for the home team. However, Coach Zdenek Zeman will stick to his attacking principles and may name an unchanged side without for Panagiotis Tachtsidis, who was sent off against Udinese.
Parma are currently on a good run of form after registering back-to-back wins. They currently are two points behind Roma in the league with three wins, three draws and three loses. The Parma players usually setup themselves in a 3-5-2 formation and their style of play is not very far from Udinese’s. They are high on confidence after a 3-1 win against Torino last weekend.
The match ended 3-1 in favour of AS Roma at the Stadio Olympico, and since then Roma changed managers and their style of play whilst Udinese are still playing under a 3-5-1 formation. After back-to-back wins in the league, AS Roma are looking for a third win when they face Udinese at home.
The visiting side will travel without the experienced duo Giovanni Pasquale and Giampiero Pinzi; both are ruled out of the fixture due to injury. They recently extended their contracts till 2016 after it was set to expire in 2012. Udinese will go into the match with seven players unavailable for selection.
Despite the fact that the season has only just started, the Rossoneri come into the fixture in a must-win situation because they have lost three of their first four Serie A games this season. In fact, Milan have yet to win in front of…
