Victor Rock the sweet moment of form passes. The Brazilian striker, already announced to join Barcelona for January or June 2024, has been involved in at least one goal. in nine of the last eleven games he has played (seven goals and three assists). The up-and-coming striker was once again the deciding factor this morning in Atlético Paranaense’s 0-2 victory over Vasco da Gama. His contribution was absolutely transcendent.
The future Barça striker assisted on the goal that opened the scoring, the work of Cristian, and converted a penalty, which was converted by his teammate Vítor Bueno, to confirm his team’s victory. ‘About Tigrinho’, however, did not particularly satisfy the end of the match. He wanted to be the maximum penalty taker and when he was substituted in the 89th minute, he walked off the field with clear gestures of disapproval.. As the undisputed leader in victory, he felt he deserved a penalty.
Apart from this episode, Vitor Roque’s impressive performance is very remarkable. The Brazilian only intervened 19 times and made eight passages, and even in doing so made assist, called a penalty, created another clear chance, won six duels and allowed five fouls. Like the best centre-forwards in the world, “O Tigrinho” didn’t need to constantly be in contact with the ball to make a difference.
Although the FC Barcelona Football Association will force him to be more involved in the generation of the game, his importance in the decisive meters will be the rain of May for Javi Hernandez’s project. Barcelona Group needs an offensive “weapon” besides Robert Lewandowski and a profile like that of Vitor Roque would be very interesting for the cule style.
