Míchel is always very focused on data and statistics. Last season he often asked for “more numbers” from midfielders Borja García, Samu Saiz, Iván Martín and company in the form of goals and assists. This year, the range of scorers and assists is wider and has started to produce from the start. Thus, in addition to Yangel Herrera, and the always present goalscorer Cristhian Stuani, the other decisive man in these last days has been Toni Villa. The winger from Murcia opened the scoring in Cornellà-El Prat with the first white-and-red goal and against Sevilla he was in charge, in a classic winger action on the right wing, of assisting Stuani to score the equalizer.
The incidence in the area of the former Valladolid has allowed him to win the game to Couto or Valery on the right wing. However, the competition is fierce and indeed the Brazilian and the striker have been Herrera’s assistants for his goals against Espanyol and Sevilla.
