Kike García celebrates Labor Day

An underrated forward exponent, Kike García fueled Eibar’s hopes with a scoring triplet. Nothing more poetic than the explosion of a proletarian footballer on the day that honors the workers. On such an important day, the armorer’s team clings to the category, which after 16 days without winning, it liquidated (3-0) Alavés with the repertoire of its best striker, the same one who has 12 of the 26 goals signed by the team so far this campaign. Eibar is with the water around their neck, but the victory fuels them in search of the great escape.

The game also left a worrying trail for Alavés, who had improved after the arrival of Javier Calleja to the bench, but who returned to his old ways after four games without knowing defeat. Unable to shake off the pressure put by the rival, the Vitoria team could not activate their differential players. Two of them, Jota and Lucas Pérez, went to the bench at game time with hardly having touched the ball. Everything was already sentenced.

He wanted to build the Alavés from the bottom, he wanted the rival to open up or at least wear out in the chase. Eibar did not care about the stake. That is his football, that and the ball into the area like the one he placed from a throw-in three minutes into the game to generate a commotion in which Kike García was the smartest, on the edge of offside, skilled at moving among an opponent tangle. It is not accompanied by elegance in its movements, but it has much more category and repertoire than it appears. The physicist, resounding, deceives. You don’t need a tronista Kike hairstyle to bring solutions to your team with and without the ball. His definitions to score the three goals portray him, each one was better than the previous one. The second goal, already after the break, came after a prodigious unchecking and subtle touch from the near post to anticipate the centrals. The third would be signed by the best version of Messi, a cut over the baseline and threaded to the far post, straight into the squad to save goal Pacheco.

Alavés found the excuse for the lack of intensity, a euphemism that serves to cover other deficiencies. In reality he lacked football, unable to collect passes in the face of tightness. When he wanted to dawn, at the beginning of the second part, Kike García gave him two anesthetics and closed the blind. “I don’t know if he’s going to give us to save you, but we don’t give up. We have to be brave ”, explained at the end the hero of the match, worn out by the effort. Eibar still has to visit Getafe and Valencia and will receive Betis and Barcelona in their fiefdom. Also Alavés, with five more points in their locker, looks at a calendar that will bring Mendizorroza to Levante and Granada and send him to Elche and Seville.
