Aimeric Laporte of Athletic Club duels for the ball with Guillermo Ochoa of Malaga CF during the Copa del Rey Quarter Final Second Leg match between Athletic Club and Malaga CF at San Mames Stadium on January 29, 2015 in Bilbao, Spain.

The Mexicans had another filled week of action before leaving for National Team duty. We saw some nice highlights, and some heartbreaks along the way.

Take a look at how they all did…

Moreno and Guardado started and went the entire match against Atletico Madrid in their second leg of Champions league play.

They both played excellently, and the match went to penalties to decide a winner. Both Moreno and Guardado scored their penalties, but PSV lost 6-7.

On Saturday, they were back in action but PSV would lose to Ajax, 0-2.

Marco did not see any playing time in Frankfurt’s 1-0 win over Hannover 96.

His benching comes with some controversy, as he was given “Man of the match” just two games prior (via WhoScored). Frankfurt just hired former Croatian national team coach, Niko Kovač, who was quoted in saying, “Mexico’s knees will be shaking,” prior to Croatia’s match against Mexico at the 2014 World Cup. Mexico would go on to defeat Croatia, 3-1, and Fabián was a part of the Mexican national team.

Any coincidence? Time will tell…

Diego Reyes, Carlos Vela – Real Sociedad (Spain)

Both Vela and Reyes started and went the full 90 minutes against Las Palmas in a 0-1 loss.
