The Atletico Madrid will face tonight Valencia. A match that brings many ghosts to the rojiblanco team because in the first leg they went on to win 3-1 in the 90th minute, and ended up drawing 3-3 losing two points that at that time brought them closer to the leadership of the Real Madrid. A goal that seems impossible just over two months later.
That day when everything seemed ready for sentencing, an unexpected protagonist appeared, Hugo Hard. The striker from Getafe made two goals to centers first of Gaya and after Guedes to drive the fans crazy Valencia, and deal a heavy blow to the Athletes from which they have not yet finished recovering.
Well, since then the current Valencian player has only achieved one goal. He arrived in the league against Celta Vigo. The only goal in nine games, seven in the League and two in Copa del Rey. In total he has five this season, and before playing against the rojiblancos he had two. All this, despite being one of the usual players in the elevens of Bordalás.
Some surprising numbers for a player who, against the Atletico Madrid he became a real star for Valencia. A player who comes from the quarry of the Getafe, who got to have quite a few minutes in the first team and who last season played in the Real Madrid Castilla.
tonight in the Wanda Metropolitano will have a very special match against the team against which he had his most memorable performance since playing in Mestalla.
