Santi Mina: goal, beat yourself
He has 10 days left to beat his best record
Con his target to Real Madrid in the league clash this Saturday, Santi Mina has managed to match his best scoring record at Celta -which he achieved in season 14/15-. His goal serves to raise his private count to seven. The present 2021 began with only one goal in the box, but if only the last two months are valued, 50% of the goals of the Vigo team bear his signature.
Nine days it took the youth squad to score for the first time this course. Two months of drought followed for him. On January 20, in the match against Betis, he ended his losing streak. Since then he has also marked Atlético de Madrid, Elche -dublete-, Huesca, and Real Madrid. Two months in which Celta has managed to add 11 points – two wins, five draws, three losses – and score a total of 12 goals. Six of them are yours.
Despite the fact that at the beginning of this season, with Óscar García on the bench, heSanti Mina’s numbers were not something remarkable in the Vigo team, -because he had scored a goal and had played only 40% of the minutes- the arrival of Eduardo Coudet changed things for the blue striker. With Chacho he has played everything; is, for him, an essential in his starting eleven. This has been the case in 17 of the 19 games accumulated by the Argentine coach at the head of the bench; Mina only missed two games last December, when she was out due to injury.
Santi Mina is, right now, the team’s second top scorer. He is only two goals away from matching Iago Aspas – who has not been able to score since 2020. They are followed on the list, with five goals each, Nolito and Brais Méndez.
In the 10 days remaining for the conclusion of the championship, to continue with the average goalscorer registered in the last two months -six goals in 10 games-, Santi Mina would manage to beat his best goalscoring mark in the First Division, the 12 goals he achieved with Valencia.
