NI doubt your delivery. Few of its quality. But goals are asked of Maxi Gómez and for some time now his production is scarce, well below those sought. In 2021 the Uruguayan streak is difficult to digest. He helps the team, he leaves his face (as in the last with assistance or the penultimate with gap and hospital), but the goal dribbles him.
It takes six targets in eight months. Very little. He has only celebrated in five games: Cádiz, Getafe, Granada, Alavés and Valladolid (2) and has played 24, the vast majority of them headline. The bad streak comes from 2020, where he did not have the fine aim either.
Bordalás needs to recover the best Maxi and for this he has brought him good competition. Has signed Marcos André, that last year he shone at Valladolid and already started second with a goal. Have also landed Hugo Duro and Hélder Costa, two offensive players, with more mobility, but who could play at the top of the attack.
Before this panorama, the time comes for Maxi to return to the goal. He needs to reconnect with his numbers from the first season in Valencia and those he got at Celta to raise his value to 40 million euros.
