Oscar Rodriguez was the author of the only goal of the friendly against Alaves last night (0-1), at least during the 90 minutes that the game had been set, not counting those extra 30 that has unleashed some confusion between the scoreboard that one club placed and the other. The one from Talavera made a great goal from 25 meters with a left foot that came in full of power near the crossbar. A whiplash that the number 14 is used to trying with his right leg – the good one – and that means his second goal of the preseason or in unofficial matches this summer. He scored another beautifully made before him PSG.
And is that Oscar Rodriguez, who in his first interview of the course with MARCA, made it clear that his intention to stay this season (situation agreed between the player, Lopetegui and Monchi), has seen his summer effort rewarded and his adaptation to the coach’s idea with three consecutive starts. Either in the center or in the left band, where he has also been seen with arrival and at a good level, the Real Madrid youth squad he is showing that he has not made a mistake in the risky decision to remain in the Andalusian squad, despite the brutal competition.
And on top now comes the competition of competitions: the Champions. It was precisely in the best club tournament in the world where Óscar showed Julen and all of Sevilla what his level can be if he has good opportunities. A foul of his led to the goal of Luuk de Jong that would give hope to the Nervionense team in the round of 16 tie against the Borussia Dortmund. In Germany, despite the fact that Sevilla could not come back, he completed his best performance as a Sevilla player. And now the Champions returns with the first game of the group stage against the Salzburg. Óscar is ready to be the starter. Lopetegui decides.
