Óscar Gil or a climax in Montilivi

The right-back of Espanyol, pending Miguelón to be able to repeat as a starter, lived last year the historic rise of Elche against Girona.


When Óscar Gil looks back on his sports career, he will never be able to ignore the night of August 23, 2020, to date the best football memory, surely in a future shared with others (he is 22 years old) but in a privileged place . That day, in an agonizing encounter marked by the expulsion of Cristhian Stuani, Elche rose by winning the final of the playoff with a goal in the 96th minute from Pere Milla. The epic from Elche, a club trained at that time by former parakeet José Rojo Pacheta, experienced an end worthy of its resilient history.

The side has many repeating numbers on the right side. Against Osasuna, Miguel Llambrich was removed from the list due to muscular problems, as Vicente Moreno commented, and everything will depend on his evolution in the three training sessions that remain before the match. Both have been taking turns in the position, although Miguelón has been more solid in his participation. Without highlighting both in statistics, Óscar Gil averages a cross every 25 minutes while the player on loan from Villarreal is more restrained, with a cross every 33 minutes. Both, where they suffer, is in the defensive aspect.

Gil has started in eight games, in which Espanyol has added six victories, one draw (Tenerife) and one defeat (Las Palmas). The Alicante player even achieved a goal against Zaragoza, although he has had serious errors on his defensive side, without a doubt the part in which rivals overturn the attack game as Osasuna did, for example, in the Cup round. Miguelón on the field, Espanyol has lost three games, drew two and won eight.

Víctor Gómez will return with better numbers

In the right-back position, Espanyol may be overbooked again next season. Óscar Gil, for whom Espanyol paid 500,000 euros as a clause, has a long-term contract. Miguelón ends his contract with Villarreal and, although he arrives at Espanyol as a loan until June 30, the operation may lead to his signing for Espanyol once the course is over. And in Miranda de Ebro is Víctor Gómez, who must return after a transfer that he is taking advantage of.

The youth full-back has played 18 games, scored a goal and provided two assists. And he is the sixth player in the entire LaLiga SmartBank with the most centers in the area, with 99, an average of practically one every 15 minutes, a figure that reflects the model of the Mirandés game, one of the surprises of the course that is four points behind the promotion playoff.
