Monchi opted for Rafa Mir last summer to turn him into another lethal weapon for Julen Lopetegui's squad and the striker began to write his particular story yesterday. He made his debut as a starter on this sixth day of the League and did so by scoring a goal and leaving good feelings for the coach and the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán fans. There is high competition for En Nesyri, who has become the main offensive reference of the Nervionense team after reflecting brilliant records since last season. Rafa Mir's smile enters the scene when Lopetegui needs it most, who looks to the upcoming calendar knowing the importance of having more differential assets.
He had to wait several duels to achieve a place in the Sevillista eleven. The good moment of En Nesyri and the tight tactical scheme of Lopetegui so far stopped the appearance of Rafa Mir, who intends to take an important place in the team after being the great bet of Sevilla in the last summer market when it comes to reinforcing his offensive power. His movements into space gave the team many alternatives in their counterattacks and the context of the duel against Valencia was unbeatable for the conditions of the ram.

Lopetegui knows that he will need his two forwards at full level if he wants the objectives of the campaign can be reached and that both arrive with bellows at the end of the course. Saving energy has already begun in Nervión and the response of one of its signings seems to be on the table. The power of Rafa Mir and his accuracy in his definition against Valencia give a handful of hopes about the possible success of Monchi's latest challenge.
