Iago Aspas, as decisive as Messi

Of how relevant it has been Iago Aspas (33 years) at Celtic no football fan has any doubts. And in case there is someone who misses its importance, a piece of information provided by the twitter account is enough @LaLigaenDirecto. The Galician forward has given his team as many points as Messi yours in the last five leagues (45 total). During that time he has scored 58 goals, while the Argentine goes no less than 95.

The last two of Blades in Saturday's win against him Valencia (3-1), who raise their scoring figure to 103, placing only one of the all-time record held Hermidita (104).

The one from Moaña commented after the game about his goals that “the first one is a gift from Nolito, with whom I have a special understanding, not just from this season, but from previous ones. In the second I was afraid that what happened last year in Valencia would happen to me, when I went to hit over the barrier at Mestalla, I was going to score and Dani Parejo anticipated me, saw it and took it away under sticks. I was afraid that another partner would get in and that's why it took me a while to get settled in to shoot. I saw that there was no one and I had the right to put it there ”.

Aspas also said that the balance of four points added in the first two days is “very good. I still have a shame from the game in Eibar because I think that in the second half we were good, but the rival team also competes, they defended well and we are happy. Two games, four points and the good feelings we had in the preseason are confirmed. A new partner has arrived, another one we already had last year, and we have to squeeze together ”.

These are the last two goals of Aspas, who scored in the game against Valencia
