At the moment of the traffic jam, all eyes are looking for you. When any footballer loses his lead or plays with the sole objective of adding value to the action, he leans on his category. It was, without going any further, the common denominator in the victory against I raised. When in doubt, ball to David
Silva. As if the most direct way to fly again by Europe outside to make a stopover in Arguineguín, to the Canarian rhythm of the bus.
La Real has regained its cruising speed with the Gran Canaria at the controls. The route through the League has once again sloped downwards, due to positive results, since Silva put on his shirt again, against him Cadiz the 7
February. A month later, island flashes spread across the pitch like the aurora borealis in the pole
North. A show that delights the whole world.
It has been five games since Silva returned, overcoming his thigh injury. The defeats have disappeared from the txuri urdin map in the League. Four wins against Cadiz (4-1), Getafe (0-1), Alaves (4-0), I raised (1-0) and the tie against Real
Madrid (1-1) consolidate the European aspirations of the Real. 13 points out of 15 with the Gran Canaria star illuminating the second consecutive classification for Europe, with eight points over the first one to stay out (Villarreal) and keeping an eye on the area Champions three away (Seville, with one game less).
Two defeats in 16 presences
La Real has three victories in Anoeta with the contest of Silva as a clear determining point. He fought half an hour against Cádiz, with the fish about to be sold, he distributed two assists to Isak Y For your in the win at Alaves, and this Sunday caused a monumental mess in the defense of the Levant. The ex of Manchester
City it was the epicenter of the tornado that devastated the game. A drive here, a jog there, decisive passes on all sides. If he had made the two shots on goal he signed, he would have been on the shoulders of Anoeta, next to the full Merino.
SilvaIn addition, he intervened decisively with an openness to Monreal in 0-1 of For your to the Real
Madrid. Five minutes separated him from contributing in a full 15 points in five games. The footprint it is leaving, however, is devastating. Of signing for history. The best Real of the season coincides with Silva in the countryside. The worst sequence of results hit the project in the absence of the islander.
La Real have achieved 11 victories in the 16 league games they have played Silva. He has added 75% of the points in his presence, at a rate of 2.25 per game. Those of Imanol They have only incurred the league defeat twice while Silva on the field. Both in the stadium of Anoeta, against Valencia (0-1) and Athletic
While Silva he was injured, in two stages since he was the victim of a relapse, the Real went through problems: eight points out of 27 possible. 30% in nine games of the championship without the playmaker’s guide.
The only victory without Silva
La Real had to reinvent itself in a relevant stretch of the season. Cross came out. Silva dropped out of the Super Cup and Real was eliminated in the semifinal. Silva he was dropped from the Copa del Rey and the Real was eliminated in the round of 16. Forgive the redundancy. Unmistakable symptom of the influence of the world champion on the scheme of Imanol.
The only Real League victory without Silva was in the derby of Saint
Mamés. It will be better to have the ‘great canary’ in the Cup final.
