Ulloa’s injury opened the doors of ownership to Piovaccari which, between League and Cup, adds up to 799 minutes. Of the twelve league matches in which he has participated, the striker has started in five (Mirandés, Elche, Albacete, Las Palmas and Girona) and has made full in the KO Tournament. The Italian points to eleven against Lugo, a match he will face full of morals and with the firm intention of extending his idyll with the goal. It should be remembered that last season he scored a total of thirteen goals with Cordoba. Piovaccari signed for Rayo last summer, since he had a profile of Paco Jémez’s taste. Precisely the coach was one of those who was most satisfied with the work of the Italian in Lasesarre: “The strikers live and feed on the goal, they are happier when they score. He is always there and shows his face when we need him. It will do you good to calm down and gain confidence. He has made a very complete match in a very difficult field. I am very happy for him, he deserved this match and this goal to claim“. Federico Piovaccari already knows what it is to mark with the Strip. The 35-year-old striker premiered as a striker scorer in the Copa del Rey match against Barakaldo. The Italian was the author of 0-2 definitive, after De la Fuente Ramos previously canceled two goals. “For a forward marking is everything. This last month I am having more opportunities to play and occasions, but many times it is luck that determines where the ball goes“, confessed the Italian, who celebrated with rage that first target wearing the Vallecana shirt.
