Rayo Vallecano faced the Spanish second division team, Sporting Gijón, a modest team that beat Vallecas, defeating it 2-0 and qualifying for the round of 16 of the Copa del Rey.
In Colombia, all eyes were on Radamel Falcao García, who returned to the starting line-up in Andoni Iraola’s team, but did not have enough options to beat the difficult Gijón, who held on and made a difference in the second half.
However, there was another Colombian in the match, but he was on the sides of Gijón and played 71 minutes, in addition, he was one of the most outstanding players in the match thanks to his good performance.
Gijón had on its roster the Chocoano, Juan Ferney Otero, a 27-year-old player who recently arrived in Spanish soccer from América de México and has earned a place in the starting team. He was in charge of assisting with an assist for Milovanovic’s first goal.
Juan Otero was one of the best scored, surpassing Falcao, achieving a 7.2 in the match, while the ‘Tigre’ scored a 6.7.
In the current season, Otero has played as a winger, playing in 21 games, starting 20 times and scoring two goals, being important in the imbalance.
At the moment, it is not known who will be the rival in the round of 16 for Gijón, but Juan Otero’s next match with his team will be for the second division of Spain against Levante on January 6, matchday 22.
