Vallecano secret to victory

Vallecano secret to victory

Radamel Falcao has returned to LaLiga through the big door. The Colombian forward has scored four goals in 249 minutes spread over six games for Rayo Vallecano. The last of them was against Barcelona leaving Piqué seated and served Iraola’s men to leave the three points in Vallecas. Behind Falcao’s performance there is a lot of work behind and a ritual. In Radioestadio de Onda Cero they have told this Wednesday that the coffee attacker is living in the house that belonged to Jackson Martínez at the time he was at Atlético de Madrid. However, the presence of his three children leads him to spend the night before the games in a hotel just to rest well. In view of his goals, the ritual is taking effect.
The coffee grower arrived at Rayo once the 2021 summer transfer market had closed. His adaptation was quick and easy. It only took him ten minutes to score his first goal with the Strip. It was against Getafe in the 0-3 victory. Tigre’s second goal was against one of his fetish victims: Athletic. Falcao jumped to San Mamés in minute 76 and, as he did in his time with Atlético de Madrid in the final of the Europa League against Athletic, he beat the goal of the lions in 96 ‘. His first two goals came in 33 minutes. But Falcao was not going to stay there, because the Tiger’s hunger is voracious. In his third game with Rayo he also saw the goal. On this occasion the Colombian started as a starter against Cádiz and once again took the opportunity to score at the edge of the break. Then came the games against Osasuna and Betis in which he did not see the goal, but he did play and against Elche, in which he was a substitute after the national team break, until this Wednesday when he has scored a goal again.
Falcao made two shots against Barcelona with an effectiveness of 50%, one of them was the goal. He touched the ball 20 times, gave six good passes, three to Fran García, of the 13 he tried, he missed three and recovered a ball. He committed a foul, he was fouled and he fell offside once.
Falcao: “I had never experienced a victory against Barcelona and I did it with Rayo”
Falcao spoke into Movistar’s microphones after the victory against Barcelona: “We are happy and excited that these people can have the illusion they are having today. We hope that these fans can see what they never saw. I had never experienced a victory against Barcelona and I did it with Rayo “.
The 35-year-old attacker commented on the play of the goal: “With Óscar Trejo we constantly talk about how we move. He already had the play in his head and a ball filters me that allows me to define at the longest stick.”
