Isak, for the best scorers

The Swedish striker equaled the 14 goals that Agirretxe made on Monday, staying one of the record of Willian José, two of Vela and three of Griezmann

TOLex Isak scored his fourteenth goal in this LaLiga on Monday in Eibar, in which he has already far exceeded the nine with which he appeared in Spain last time and has five rounds to overcome or equal the records of some of the best strikers in the history of Real Sociedad.

Isak has warned last year of his great potential, when he left at 16 goals between LaLiga and the Cup, Competition in which he was top scorer with seven and ended up winning almost a month ago, which has given even more value to his individual achievement. After arriving in the shadow of Willian José, he was uncovered when the Brazilian refused to play because he wanted to go to Tottenham.

The 19 started this season still sharing attack with Porto Calvo and he has agreed again that, after his departure to the Premier, is when he has performed best, since 11 of his 14 goals have come since then.

That figure makes Isak be just one goal away from matching Willian José’s best mark in La Real, the 15 he contributed in LaLiga 2017-18, equaling the 14 that Imanol Agirretxe achieved as the top in the 2012-13 season and exceeding the 13 that his partner Mikel Oyarzabal signed in 2018-19.

Kodro, Kovacevic and Nihat, unreachable

The one from Solna, in addition to Willian José, has ahead in the scoring chapter with the txuriurdin shirt some of the players who have made the most history defending it. With two more targets, I would equalize Carlos Vela’s 16 in 2013-14, a League in which Antoine Griezmann starred in his best mark with the Real, 17.

Who Isak will not be able to seem to reach is Nihat Kahveçi and Darko Kovacevic, who in the runner-up campaign went to 23 and 20 goals, respectively. If we go back to the previous century, Jesús Mari Satrústegui scored 16 points, José Mari Bakero and Jhon Aldridge reached 17 and with 25 and 23 we findMeho Kodro, that he made two spectacular leagues and that led him to sign for Barcelona.
