Isak come back in time

The goal scored by Alexander
Isak in Mestalla it was one of the most positive consequences that Real extracted from a match in which the sensation of losing two points was inevitable. The Swedish forward cut a streak of five consecutive games without seeing a goal and, with the crossed left-foot that marked him to Jaume, he scored his thirteenth goal in the league this season in which he has only scored in the regular tournament. The reunion of the tip of Solna with the goal is received with open arms by the txuri urdin squad. that counts on the goals of the Nordic in this final stretch to finish the League in the fifth position that boasts eight games for the conclusion.

Performance of Isak in 2021, as a result of his consolidation as a starting center forward after the departure of Willian
Joseph, has represented one of the most solid arguments of the Real in its league aspirations. His start to the season was irregular and he only scored three goals in the first 18 games. The entry into 2021 gave new life to a Isak who started the new year scoring at Sanchez Pizjuán – he did not play against Osasuna on January 3 – to chain nine goals in six consecutive days scoring, which meant three victories and two draws for Real. Against Real Madrid in Valdebebas, however, he failed in his attempt to become the first txuri urdin striker in history to score in seven consecutive games of the League and that 'trigger' was a kind of curse since, from then until the Sunday at Mestalla, he had not scored again in the League or in the Cup final. Six official matches without seeing a goal that he put an end to at the edge of the break in Valencia when he took advantage of the theft of Guevara after the error of Paulista in the exit of the ball to face Diakhaby and cross before Domenech.

Has surpassed Craioveanu

Isak He has proven to be a streaky scorer, tending to concentrate his goals in a few games, such as in the great strike at the beginning of 2020 that led to the classification of Real for the Cup final. That the Swede would wake up again for the supreme luck of the Soccer in Mestalla feeds the expectations that he can finish the league championship raising the 13 goals that he has to date. In the 89 games he has played for Real, he has scored a total of 29, which makes him the club's ninth best foreign scorer, leaving behind 27 goals in 97 games for Craioveanu.

With eight games still to be played, to the motivation of competing for a place in European competition for next season, Isak will add the challenge of signing his best scoring campaign as a professional. With the goal he scored on Sunday, he equaled the 13 goals in the league he made at Willem II in the 18/19 season, the campaign of his explosion. It is, so far, his best scoring record in a league championship, although last season he went up to 16 official goals in Real thanks to the seven he scored in the Cup and the 9 he scored in the League. He now has eight games to raise his numbers, which would be the best tool for his team to qualify for the Europa League for the second season in a row.
