In the absence of Iza, well it's Akapo

It is not news to say that Iza is the capital of Cádiz. The winger, who has missed the last two games due to injury, It is a serious doubt for tomorrow's game against Eibar. The truth is that he is meeting the objectives and in recent days he has been able to do part of the training session with his teammates, but if the medical discharge does not arrive, finally he will not be in Ipurúa.

Nobody misses the importance of the side in Cádiz. Iza fell to her feet in the Silver Cup last season; and from the first day he won ownership, from where no one could get him and finishing as the second outfield player with the most minutes, only behind Álex Fernández. Of the 42 games last year, he played 39, missing one by penalty and two by injury, the last two.

This season there was no doubt that Iza's acclimatization to a higher category was going to be superb. Despite not having been in the last two games, Iza is the second player with the most good passes, 101 out of 133, which is 76% correct. Is the player who receives the most fouls in the team (12) and where truly stands out is in duels. The winger is not afraid of the change of category and has been victorious in 44 of the 56 in which it has been involved (79% success rate).

With all these premises it seemed unthinkable that someone could replace him. Akapo, his natural replacement, made his debut this season in San Mamés, where he did not play a good match. The Guinean was sent off in minute 47 for double warning and later apologized to the fans on Twitter. After serving his sanction against Granada, he has started against Real Madrid and Villarreal, showing a great level.

In both games, Cádiz kept a clean sheet and Akapo closed his band well by drying Vinicius and Marcelo, against Real Madrid; and Pedraza and Moi Gómez, against Villarreal. Your improvement is measured in numbers. During the match against Athletic, Akapo had a 54% success in the passes (seven good out of 13) and in these two games it went to 76% (25 of 33) Against the Basque team he was victorious in 40% of the duels (two out of five), achieving a 75% success against Real Madrid and Villarreal (nine of 12). The last point to highlight is the fouls committed. Against Athletic he committed two (two yellows) and since then he has not committed any.
