Asensio portrays Raphinha

the comparison Asensio-Raphinha is, among the odious, the queen. And she says a lot both ways. The Balearic, having played 575 minutes less, already has one more goal than the Brazilian. Synonymous positions, antonymous dynamics. Because the graph tells that one, Asensio, is managing to exploit his opportunities to the fullest and on the contrary, Raphinha, it doesn’t finish exploding and give all the expected performance. The crossroads came the night of Leipzig, but against Elche the Balearic returned to smile at the camera and gave sorpasso to his rival in the airlift.

The situation of Asensio this season is being especially delicate. He is the fourth Real Madrid player with the fewest minutes: 114′. Only Mariano has played less (10′) and it must be taken into account that Vallejo and Odriozola have not yet participated. The rest of the team already outnumbers him. However, he has more goals than Hazard (1) and the same as Modric. All this without having been a starter yet: the ten times he has started this course, they have been from the bench (on average, every time he plays, he enjoys 11 minutes). Last season he was the team’s third top scorer (12), just behind the Benzema-Vinicius duopoly and ahead of Rodrygo (9).

As to raphinha, the hurricane that surrounds Barcelona due to the most recent events wets him, like everyone else. But in your case, the substitution of Ansu Fati soaks him. Because the Spanish showed in the Bernabeu who has an abrupt desire to play: in a quarter of an hour he generated the goal of life, after a break from the left to the rhythm of Formula 1 and was about to equalize, shortly after, with a whiplash from the edge. Raphinha is not finishing exploding and the debate is latent. The Brazilian, a starter in nine of the 13 games he has played, has only scored one goal: 0-1 at Pizjuán. One, in 689 minutes. And as soon as you assist, idem, one.

divergent futures

One seems to spend his last months in the Madrid and the other, however, has just landed in Barcelona as one of the biggest bets in the history of the club. The numbers say: eighth most expensive signing in the history of Barcelona (60 million) and contract until 2027. Asensio, for his part, ends his contract this summer. Last August he had very juicy proposals on the table from England and Italy, but decided that he had the right to honor the contract he had signed and stayed. What happens in the summer of 2023 is unknown. But for now, in Carpe Diemwins Raphinha’s pulse. He has one more goal… in 575 minutes less.
