A handful of footballers make me smile and this man is one of them.
El Matador’s stats this season is not what I would call super amazing as his mane, because I feel as if he could have done yards better in most matches but he has started the season well.
Although Cava scored 7 L1 goals this season thus far, I feel as if he performed much better in the Champions League, simply because he was a joy to watch. He scored the only goal against APOEL to keep PSG at the top of the table at the time and went on to deliver against Ajax scoring a brace in the process.
He played 4 friendlies with Uruguay, scoring 1 a’ piece against Japan and Costa Rica.
Total goals: 16 (7 Ligue 1; 5 CL; 1 Coupe de France; 1 Coupe de la Ligue; 2 Uruguay)
Total assists: 0
Total bookings: 3 Y (2 L1; 1 CL) 1 R (L1)
Total apps: 28
End notes: Cava is settled in properly this season and I like that he is enjoying himself in certain matches, but I can’t help but feel that something is nagging him despite him saying that all is well in Paris. Despite that, he showed glimpses of how lethal he can be and some of his goals either won or drew matches for PSG during desperate times. Shoulder on, El Matador. Shoulder on.
