Football Boots - Weekend Head to Heads - The Winners!
Here are the winners from the weekend's European head-to-heads. At the SoccerBible we picked our key head-to-head battles, and now we know the players who came out on top...
Carrick (Manchester United) v Van Persie (Arsenal) Winner:
Puma King XL football boots
Carrick was calm in possession wearing Puma King football boots, despite a hectic game going on around the midfielder. And it was composure and a healthy dose of luck that helped United to a crucial victory over key rivals Arsenal. Although, this head-to-head could have ended differently if Van Persie's goal hadn't been disallowed!
Dzeko (Wolfsburg) v Olic (Bayern Munich) Winner:
adidas adiPure II football boots
Olic wasn't the star of the show, as that accolade went to another adidas boots wearer Arjen Robben, who scored twice on his debut in a 3-0 victory! But it was a solid performance from the forward player, wearing adidas adiPure II football boots. Unfortunately for Wolfsburg, it was a poor day at the office for Olic's head-to-head rival Dzeko, who spurned a host of chances for the visiting side.
Ronaldo (Real Madrid) v Felipe (Deportivo) Winner:
Nike Mercurial Superfly football boots
Scoring on your league debut, and being on the winning side is always going to give you the edge in a head-to-head, so did Felipe ever stand a chance against the world's most expensive player? Ronaldo scored Real Madrid's second goal from the penalty spot in a 3-2 home victory over Deportivo, and wearing the Nike Superfly football boots Ronaldo kept the Deportivo keeper busy as he rained in shots.
Pato (AC Milan) v Eto'o (Inter) Winner:
An emphatic victory for Inter Milan, as they destroyed city rivals AC 4-0! Amazingly Samuel Eto'o wasn't on the scoresheet, although he was busy distracting the Milan defence for his colleagues to capitalise. And Eto'o, playing in gold Puma v1.08 football boots, also drew the foul in the area which led to Diego Milito scoring form the penalty spot.
