There is a lot of expectation in Guayaquil due to the presence of Agüero who, before arriving in Ecuador, was enthusiastic about it and quoted a tweet from the yellow club in which he anticipated the event this Friday. “Come on… What a nice night we will have,” wrote the former Manchester City striker.

Agüero received a special welcome with a replica of the World Cup, a cigar, three souvenirs with the colors of the Argentine national team and another with the Ecuadorian colors, and the message “welcome to Guayaquil.” The photo was taken by Kun who posted it on an Instagram story.
The Yellow Night is a party in Barcelona in Guayaquil that has been repeated for 32 years at each start of the season. In its early years, the focus of the event was the presentation of the squad with the additions for that year and it was used as a good opportunity for fans to welcome new players and also pay tribute to their idols.
Since 1996, an international friendly match began to be played and on that occasion it was the then Copa Libertadores champion, Gremio de Porto Alegre, who won 1-0. Then, the Colombian and Peruvian teams were the ones that received the most invitations to face the Torero, as Barcelona is known.

Although from 2016 the event took on extra football notoriety since they began to invite an international figure who has retired. In addition, they also have a dinner with the members of the club and activities planned by the Guayaquil institution. The photo with the star is an unavoidable item and on that first occasion it was Ronaldinho Gaucho.
In 2017 it was Diego Forlán and Kaká did it in 2018. In 2019 and 2020 there were the two Italian world champions, Andrea Pirlo and Alessandro Del Piero. On the last three occasions they were Argentines: Javier Mascherano (2021), Carlos Teves (2022) and now Sergio Agüero (2023). The guest always wears Barcelona’s anniversary number, which is why Kun will use 98, which are the years the club celebrates in 2023.
Finally, the farewell to Matías Oyola who retired from soccer is also announced, although he will have his official goodbye with the Toreros on this Yellow Night. This was announced by Alfaro Moreno and the idea was to pay tribute to Pony, who played for the club from 2009 to 2021 and won three local championships: 2012, 2016 and 2020. In the international arena, his most outstanding achievements were the Copa Libertadores semifinals. in 2017 and 2021.
