How Aubamyeng Become Star In Laliga
Aubameyang shines again with fourth goal in three games
Another game for Barcelona, another goal for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as he continued his fine form for Xavi’s side.
The Gabon centre-forward scored twice against Valencia, then against Napoli in the Europa League, and has now added another against Athletic Club.
He’s integrated rapidly into the Barcelona attack and the stats are showing that he feels at home already at Camp Nou.
Few expected him to make quite such an immediate impact, and he could be impressing enough to even make some consider whether or not to go all out in their pursuit of Erling Haaland.
Under contract until 2025, he has an exit option for 2023, though at the age of 32, he is showing that he still has the quality to compete.
When it comes to facing Aubameyang, Marcelino knows what it’s like to suffer against him.
He faced him in the 2018/19 Europa League as the forward scored three goals across both legs to eliminate his Valencia side from the tournament.
