Real Sociedad defeated Celta last night in the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey, a competition in which Douvikas had shown he was ready to play a dominant role in LaLiga
Celta broke all the illusions of the outstanding fans last night and Balaídos pointed to Rafa Benítez as they blame him for the team's poor image. However, the duel against Real Sociedad has many more interpretations. One of them is that of Douvikas, who is facing a very difficult situation after being eliminated from the Copa del Rey until the end of the season.
The Greek striker had found balm for his situation in LaLiga in the cup competition, where he didn't have many minutes. A situation that the fans didn't understand because Douvikas is the top scorer in the Copa del Rey so far. But now he is without his previous fetish competition.
Douvikas remains without the Copa del Rey and has to settle for the bench
As mentioned, Douvikas has had very few minutes in LaLiga so far. The attacking pair Strand Larsen and Iago Aspas are irrefutable for Rafa Benítez. That's why, despite his good level, the Greek was one of the least used footballers in the royal team at the start of the Copa del Rey.
Now that the Copa del Rey will no longer be available to him, Douvikas will have to sit on the bench until the end of the season. It will be a really complicated situation since he is not used to it due to the importance he has always had in his teams. But Rafa Benítez's stubbornness suggests he will have to get used to it one way or another.
Rafa Benítez, in the spotlight of the fans
Another reading that the game leaves and that we have already published in ElGolDigital is the dismissal of Rafa Benítez. The Madrid coach finds himself in a really complicated situation as fans blame him for the team's poor image in the last two games against Real Sociedad.
Now everyone The responsibility lies with Marián Mouriño, who has to decide whether to change the direction of the team by changing the coach or whether to continue to trust the Madrid coach. If you choose this second option, Claudio Giráldez is best suited to take over the positionas he has shown in the heavenly subsidiary that he is more than willing to solve the problem.
