That July 27, 2018 will be marked with fire in his memory and in the parrots. "You have to try to win the LaLiga"Proclaimed Sergi Darder, in a synthesis of how Espanyol should have no reason to lose. AND "Darking" was born. Parakeets didn't win the championship, but they won They returned to Europe after 12 years of absence. And the Balearics I was in the picture of all the key moments of the course.. Now, with a much busier mission, that of permanence, the sock and his leadership have returned.
Darder threw the team behind him at Betis, especially in a virtuous first part, in which he distributed passes, ran, went to all defensive aids and, above all, stripped his fears and those of all Espanyol, in a goal that served to match the early riser of both Borja Iglesias and waking up a parakeet that was in danger of sinking hopelessly. Control, drive, dribble to avoid up to four players Verdiblancos and definition. He had everything, including the symbolism of who always command the inflection points from Espanyol.
I had understood midway against Atletico Madrid, in Metropolitan Wanda, with a 0-1 that turned out to be insufficient. And even starred in one of the most euphoric moments of the course, 2-2 extre in extremis & # 39; against Ferencvaros in Budapest in 96 & # 39 ;: it's worth highlighting the record of having marked a goal in the Europa League despite playing only eight minutes throughout the group phase. But it was last season when Darder clicked when Espanyol demanded.
It happened on the 8th, participating with a 3-1 goal against Villarreal, the best match of the Ruby era. He unleashed the madness on the 23rd, marking in the 95th minute, the winning goal against Rayo Vallecano (2-1): After a win in 11 games, there were six without losing. He was the absolute star at 1-2 on Girona on the 31st with two goals (The second was awarded the minutes to Bono in his own goal), which was the first win in a final straight of nine unbeaten games and 19 points out of 27 possible. And as it happens now, on the 35th, he has already scored against Betis, a 0-1 that only broke in the 94th minute. Each inflection point has its seal. Darking is back.
