The 21-year-old found himself for the second game in a row at the top of the attack and the sign was positive
APOEL achieved its fourth victory in a row, beating Nea Salamina 1-0 in the GSP. The team of Sa Pinto for another match worked beyond positive in the defensive area, while offensively the counter wrote 19 finals of which 11 were on target.
One of the elements that caught the eye was the choice of the Portuguese coach to start for another match with Gabriel at the top of the attack. The 21-year-old for the second game in a row starts in the starting line-up as an attacker and it seems that Sa Pinto has started a new project. end chose a different path. With Gabriel at the top of the attack the team gains speed and more flexibility than Kvilitaia or any other player we have seen in this position (Tomane, Eduardo). At the same time, in several cases, his lateral movements give other players the opportunity to move into the inner corridor and take advantage of any gaps that arise in the opposing defense.
He may not have scored against Nea Salamina, however he had some good moments such as the shot in the 15th minute that went just outside the goal of the opposing goalkeeper, while he provided the assist to Villaphanes for the goal that determined the match.
In general, the Gabriel project attracts attention and it seems at the moment to be developing in the best way both for the footballer himself and for his team.
