Without Araujo, Jesé is running as a starter

After the confirmation of the Argentine sanction, the Gran Canaria winger has all the ballots to enter the eleven against Rayo Vallecano.

As the savior of a streak, the less questionable the figure of Jesé Rodríguez stands in these times of yellow anxiety in which, after his arrival on February 1, the island have only achieved a comfortable victory against Cartagena (2-0 ), the only one in the last five games. For this Saturday, against Rayo Vallecano, without El Chino, after Competition confirmed his sanction, the winger should be of the game to change the dynamics and be able to beat a direct rival.

Ready, which comes to mean "I'm ready" published yesterday afternoon the brand new winter signing of UD Las Palmas after having finished the afternoon session that the yellow team had against their Esperanza team behind closed doors. Perhaps it is an insinuation, or not, on his part that he asks for a pass to start from the beginning against the Vallecas team on the next day, and the reality is that UD needs his goals as soon as possible, even if he is not 100%. With Araujo out of combat due to suspension, although he was not going through his best moment either, since he had not seen the door since January 10 against Mallorca, and Rober still recovering from COVID-19, his time has come.The statistics of goal shortage indicate the need to force the machine with Jesé, counting three goals in favor in the last five appointments, one from Rafa Mujica, which was useless in Almería (3-1) and the other two from Maikel Mesa and Pejiño in the only victory for the insulares during the entire month of February (Cartagena 2-0). For the rest, Mel's men have gone empty against Mirandés (2-0), Sabadell (0-1) and in the last defeat against Castellón (4-0) .

Precisely, in Castalia, the former PSG player showed that little by little he is picking up the tone and rhythm of the game necessary to be important, adding three shots in the half hour he was on the pitch. In fact, it could be said that he was the only incisive and eager yellow player, something that, now more than ever, Las Palmas longs for if he wants to reengage in the fight for the playoff. "El Bichito" is ready, now all that remains is for Pepe Mel to dare.
