FAlcao is a substitute again in the match against Getafe. The Colombian will have to wait for his opportunity in the second half, where he will surely have minutes, but between the injuries and the prudence of his coach, the Colombian soccer player does not know what it is like to start as a starter since last February 12, when he played the 90 minutes against Osasuna.
Afterwards, circumstances have prevented Radamel from completing a game and when he has been healthy he has always started from the bench and in that situation he has been practically three months in which he has not been able to give his best version, although he has scored goals, like all his life.
It is clear that Andoni Iraola, his coach, prefers for the moment not to risk even a little bit with the Colombian striker. He does not see him prepared to start from the start and yes to be a shock in the final part of the match, when there are already more spaces due to fatigue. In addition, this Sunday, May 8, is a very hot day in Madrid, so the physical effort of the players will have to be even greater.
Falcao only needed 13 minutes to score in the previous game, the day he finally had minutes. He scored a decisive goal for his team and was a predator of the area, having that gift that enlightens a few. Of course, he played very little time.
That lack of minutes is what causes Iraola to be afraid to start him, but the Spanish coach has been Falcao’s greatest supporter throughout the season and I am sure that in this final sprint he will end up giving him the title so that the Colombian can recover his best state of form, something that can only be achieved by playing.
