Rodrigo De Paul: Meet La Liga’s New Most Important Argentine

When all is said and done, Atlético Madrid will hope 2021-22 will have been a tale of two Argentines.

That beckons the question: should Atleti make way for new faces, or should they retain a homegrown superstar? We will compare these two midfielders with five advanced stats, plus a breakdown on their way to the top.
