Joaquín Muñoz, first scorer of the season

The young man from Malaga has made a niche for himself in the starting eleven at Huesca de Ambriz, after two assignments to Málaga and Mirandés, the last two seasons.


Joaquín Muñoz Benavides became the first LaLiga SmartBank scorer this season last Friday. The winger from Malaga made a very complete game to which he put the icing on the cake of a goal, the first for his team in the competition just released. In addition, I know the circumstance that he debuted as a scorer with the Huesca shirt, three seasons later.

At only 22 years it seems that he has made a hole in the starting eleven of Huesca de Ambriz and after what he saw in the first game the Mexican has not been wrong. But this beginning has nothing to do with what he has experienced in the two previous seasons in which he was also a player for the Huesca club. To date, he had only played four games with the El Alcoraz team and had to leave on loan to Málaga and Mirandés to get the minutes he needed. On his return to Huesca, it seems that this beginning allows him to dream of making a place in the starting eleven and being one of the leaders of a team that dreams of promotion.

His adventures in Miranda and Malaga were very fruitful. Al Mirandés arrived in the winter market of the 19-20 season and managed to play 15 games and a goal. There he was caught by the start of the pandemic. In the following season, he started in Alto Aragonesas, but was again on loan after playing three games, this time in the direction of Malaga. On the Costa del Sol he found more minutes than in Miranda and played 30 games, 18 of them as a starter.

Despite his youth, Joaquín Muñoz knows what it's like to debut in the First Division. Formed in the lower categories of Atlético de Madrid, in the 18-19 season he was part of the call-up of Cholo Simeone for the Huesca-Atlético de Madrid match and the Argentine coach gave him entry in the 89th minute to replace Lemar. Despite the short time he was on the pitch, Joaquín Muñoz can affirm that he played in the First Division under the command of Cholo Simeone and precisely with whom a few months later he became his team. If Huesca manages to return to LaLiga Santander, it could be that Joaquín will face the team with which he debuted in the First Division. Due to the talent and desire of the Malaga player, it will not be, after what was seen on the first day.
