"I fulfilled a dream when I came on and scored a goal. I dedicate it to the team and to the fans for all the support I’ve received. To score a goal in the Calderón is incredible. I have no words." - Héctor
No. More. Doubts. The Real Raúl.
What was that, Parejo? by Diego Costa
Sex, by Atleti (Arda’s second goal against Sant Andreu)
Sant Andreu forward Quim Araujo, a lifelong #Atleti fan, introduces his club to Cerezo, who recently said he knows nothing about our first Copa opponents.
Costa goofs off on the bench before scoring amazing bicycle kick last weekend
With his strike on Saturday, Diego Costa kept his pace of one-goal-per-match in La Liga in the present term. The ‘Beast of the Manzanares’ now has 15 in 15 Primera clashes, and 18 in 19 official games this season.
Costa was able to close in on Cristiano Ronaldo’s lead in the Pichichi standings, but he remains in second place. The Real Madrid striker, with 17 goals in La Liga, sat out over the weekend in order to nurse an injury.
The thing is, Cristiano has needed 111 shots (or 7.9 per game) to get to his 17 goal total (5 of them coming from penalty kicks). Costa, on the other hand, has only needed 47 shots (or 3.1 per game) to bag 15 (2 of them from the spot).
There is a category that, as of Saturday, Costa does lead though: fouls drawn. That’s right. Not committed–drawn. The Brazilian has been fouled 51 times, more than anyone else in all of Europe’s top leagues.
The Beast has seen a grand total of 2 yellow cards in 15 league appearances (14 as a starter) this season.
