Gabriel Torres has no roof

The Panamanian forward of Independiente del Valle is on a roll. He is one of the pillars of the team and the top scorer in LigaPro with 12 goals in 11 games.


Gabriel Torres lives one of the best moments of his career. The Panamanian forward is one of the pillars of the current leader of LigaPro and current champion of the South American Cup, Independiente del Valle. Those of Miguel Ángel Ramírez signed an anthological comeback against Delfín last Sunday thanks to the goals of Torres, who entered the second half and completely changed the face of his team, and put pressure on Liga de Quito, second with a match less.

Last year his role in Independiente del Valle was also key, but not with the significance of this season. In the five months of hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic, Torres has undergone a true metamorphosis. From the hand of the Spanish coach, he has become a very complete striker who not only is satisfied with scoring goals, but also makes them. The 31-year-old attacker combines his goalscoring side with that of an assistant.

His impact on the game of Miguel Ángel Ramírez is key. His movements with and without the ball, in addition to his versatility (he can play as a center forward or as a winger on both wings) and his claw and dedication, provide fluidity to the attack of the Sangolquileños. He has vision of the game, he is always in the right place at the right time, he thinks very quickly and has great facility to deceive defenders with his sometimes impossible dribbles, a quality that makes him lethal in the area.

The Panamanian is the top scorer in the Ecuadorian championship with 12 goals in 11 games, one of the best records in his long and long career. In addition, he accumulates 4 assists and has two doubles in the last two games. He scores a goal every 63 minutes, with an average of 1.09 goals per game and participates in a goal every 47 minutes. In total, score or assist 1.33 times per match.

In the victory against Delfín, Gaby Torres entered in the 62nd minute with his team losing 1-2 and in the 64th minute he had already scored. After Faravelli's 3-2, the Panamanian received a perfect pass from Moisés Caicedo to put the final 4-2 on the scoreboard and rise as the figure of the championship.

Torres arrived at Independiente del Valle in July 2019 on loan from the U of Chile, and after the great performance shown in his first months in Ecuador, those from Sangolquí decided to extend their loan for another year. Once their loan expires in December 2020, the Rayados will try to do everything possible to stay with one of their stars.

With these elite striker figures, the Panamanian scares Flamengo, Independiente del Valle's next rival in the Copa Libertadores, which resumes this week after the pandemic. The last two champions of America are measured in a duel that will be carried out by two Spaniards on the benches. Miguel Ángel Ramírez will try to sour Domènec Torrent's cup debut, who has been widely criticized in Brazil for his defeat against Ceará.
