Saturday the Cadiz visit to Madrid at home, although this time it won't be at the Bernabeu, but in the Alfredo Di Stéfano. The yellows are one of the recently promoted teams, but in their ranks they have players who know what it is like to face Real Madrid, among them, the 'Choco' Lush. The forward even knows what it is to score a goal and even win the Bernabéu.


Lozano's goal at the Bernabéu dates back to the 2018-19 season, when he was still wearing the Girona. The draw for the Copa del Rey He decided to pair the Catalans with Madrid, and the forward was there to surprise everyone.

But it does not stop there. The talisman Lozano returned to action less than a month later of that match, when Girona visited the Bernabéu to face the league commitment. In that match he did not score the ‘Choco’, but he did experience what it is to beat Madrid at home (1-2), something that few footballers can boast about. On Saturday he will have another opportunity to put his talismanic power to the test against the whites, yes, this time in the Di Stefano.

However, he is not the only Honduran who scores at the Bernabéu. ‘Macho’ Figueroa did it 34 years before in the 1983-84 season with Murcia, becoming the first natural footballer of Honduras in achieving the feat. However, as happened with the goal of Choco, was an anecdote when he was surpassed by the Madrid team 3-2.
