Raúl de Tomás regains the inspiration of the dribble

He slips away from Saúl Ñíguez, also escapes Felipe Augusto and, to round it off, escapes from Koke Resurrección with an aesthetic pipe that lifts the “oh!” from the stands of Cornellà-El Prat. Like that other scene in which he leaves again from Saul and immediately after Renan Lodi, before forcing the lack of Thomas Partey, who sees a yellow. Raúl de Tomás' images against Atlético de Madrid, last Sunday, have become viral. The Espanyol striker, not in vain, he has recovered the dribble's inspiration for the cause. One more resource for the team.

The finding of that contribution is that, In the five LaLiga matches in which RdT has participated, it has been in four that he has most haggled. It did not happen that way in his debut, against Villarreal, where he only surpassed in this luck a rival (by the four of Marc Roca or the two of Oscar Melendo, for example), but he already compensated in the following commitment, in front of Athletic Club, with up to six, and continued leading the section against Granada (four), Mallorca (two) and, of course, on his return after injury to Atlético. Last Sunday, the Madrid attacker provided eight dribbles, of which seven did occur in the first half, and tried two others that were unsuccessful; so much, that the area where they happen can cost the team a dislike.
