More than six months later, Lucas Ocampos scored again with the Sevilla shirt and managed to scare away all the ghosts that haunted him. The Argentine scored the goal of tranquility against Osasuna, taking advantage of a defensive error CA Osasuna thanks to his insistence, something that had not been lacking in this period of drought.
Ocampos’s goal was not without tension, since despite finding the goal empty, the ball slowly entered Osasuna’s goal, passing very close to the post. We must go back to April 25, to matchday 32 of the previous season to remember a celebration of Ocampos, that that day he also scored the second goal of the game, against Granada on this occasion.
Yesterday, his celebration staged the weight that was lifted from him and the scream of rage towards the stands said it all.
“They had been resisting that goal, but today I was able to score and it helped the home team to get a very important victory. It was a bit of relief for that last game in which my goal was disallowed at the last minute, those goals that do not enter and it is a reward for the work that I have been doing, that is why the celebration came out like this,” Ocampos acknowledged at the conclusion of the match.
And it is that if six months without scoring weigh, what happened in Mallorca on the previous day, when the goal was annulled in the discount that the Sevilla victory would have meant, was the height of the evil.
With a key duel against Lille in the Champions League this Tuesday and with the derby on the horizon next weekend, Ocampos seems to have gotten rid of the jinx that suffocated him.
