It was key in the triumph before theCeltic, he made a revulsiveMendizorrotzaI attendedCharleson the equalizer before theVallecano Rayand this Saturday made it possible for Eibar to dream for almost half an hour with assaultChamartn.
Cardona entered the rebound in the starting eleven. He was not among the eleven chosen by Jos Luis Mendilibar, but the injury ofPedro Lenduring the warm-up he opened the doors of the alignment. Acting as a right winger, although he was free to leave the band and reach the rival area. His was the first clear occasion of Eibar after a good action of Cucurella from the left to which did not reach by centimeters. Ten minutes were enough to verify that the 7 had arrived at the Bernabu with desire to prolong its state of grace.
The second did not forgive. A great play between Cucurella andEscalante, who took advantage of the passivity of the Real Madrid behind was finished by Cardona. The Catalan turned his back onReguilnand bati up toKeylor Navaswith a subtle touch. A definition of pure striker. His goal put Eibar ahead in the score and finished confirming him as the sensation of the second round in the armorer set. Has becomethe best winter signingand the numbers show the growth of Catalan in the second section of the course.
In four of the last six games it has been decisive. No player has participated directly in as many goals as Marc since Mendilibar rescued him from ostracism on March 3 against Celta. It has had incidence in four of the last eight goals of the Basque group. It has changed his life in the last month of competition. Until the visit of the celestial picture to Ipurua, he had only played 21 minutes in the last five months of the League. Since then, Mendilibar has used him in all the meetings.
Cardonahas gone from being the last of the row to being one of the first options of the technicianin attack. In January I had a foot and a half outside Ipurua. I hardly counted for Mendilibar during the first part of the course and did not lack offers to go out in the winter market. The Eibar closed the doors because he did not find a substitute for guarantees. He stayed without putting a bad face knowing that the second round could be similar to the first. The competition up front was fierce. Mendi spoke with him and asked for calm. There was time and its time was going to arrive. I just had to be prepared to take advantage of it. His opportunity came and Marc is squeezing it.
