Winners and losers – November 28, 2014

Winners and losers – November 28, 2014, including the continuation of a remarkable record for Inter goalkeeper Samir Handanovic.

WINNERS

Samir Handanovic
The Internazionale goalkeeper’s penalty save against Dnipro in the Italian side’s 2-1 Europa League win was his sixth consecutive spot-kick success for his club.

River Plate
Beat arch-rivals Boca Juniors 1-0 to reach the Final of the Sudamericana Cup, where they will face Atletico Nacional of Colombia.

LOSER

Thomas Vermaelen
Yet to play since joining Barcelona from Arsenal in the summer, the Belgian defender’s season could be over before it has started as he is to undergo thigh surgery that could rule him out for the remainder of the campaign.
