Kevin Rodrigues breaks goal monopoly in Leganés – Transgaming

by: Adam Smith


The play has become eternal. What if first Braithwaite forces Ruben to stop. And if then the right continuity, not to waste the attack. And then the ball hit the other side on the left. Kevin Rodrigues appeared. The score was already 2-0 and, perhaps because of the confidence that the victory gave (perhaps because of the contagion of Oscar's two previous missiles), the Portuguese threw it. His southpaw ejected a satin whip that ended up on the stick … and inside. Goal. Golazo The first to do this side with the Leganés. The first to break the monopoly of the top scorers of Oscar, Braithwaite and En Nesyri.

Because so far, as we have been in the season, the many blues and whites have been hired only by these three players, basic pillars of the cucumber set but also unique capable of scoring rival goals. A question that is not just a question of this season. Also from the final stretch of the last campaign. Since April 21, when El Zhar scored Villarreal (2-1) at La Cerámica, all the goals that the blues and whites achieved precisely up to Kevin's time had belonged to these three players, Oscar, Braithwaite and En Nesyri.

Leganés Coat of Arms / Flag

In total 20 consecutive games and thirteen goals without top scorers. Five of these duels belong to last season (three goals) and fifteen to the current one (10 goals). The victory against Celta de Vigo broke an exception that is really a problem. Leganés needs the collective contribution of the goal to get out of a grave in which it is involved.partly for their problems before the rival goal. Despite being one of the teams leading the championship (118 kicks), it is one of the least scorers (only eleven goals). An issue that, moreover, is offset by the ease with which the Lega is tagged.

Kevin Consolidation

With your goal in Celtic, Real Sociedad loaner Kevin Rodrigues has insisted that this is one of the best news from the Leganés in this final championship stretch where Javier Aguirre took control of the ship. Already at the debut of Vasco, he had to start because of the absence of Jonathan Silva. He worked as a track in Anoeta and, facing the team that owns his rights, was one of the best. True, he was sent off, but it was the result of a smart yellow second with which he interrupted a very dangerous attack from his rival. A card from those who applaud more than censor each other.

When the sanction was completed, he played almost the entire game against Sevilla for Siovas's injury in an offensive display (his main virtue), but also defensive, qualities he used again last Sunday against Celta. The casualties in defense invite us to think that Aguirre will continue to rely on him for a position that begins to argue Silvaalthough it is normal that they keep playing from the beginning. At least during Siovas disease.
