Rodrygo has struggled since the start of the season, facing a lot of criticism from the fans and not scoring goals. Recently, however, he has kicked the engines into gear and has been on a roll. He’s picked up more points than he has all season.
Real Madrid changed their formation after Karim Benzema left and Jude Bellingham arrived. He went from the classic 4-3-3 to a 4-3-1-2 on the diamond with the Englishman as a free agent.
The two most frequent strikers are Vinícius and Rodrygo, originally wingers. For Rodrygo, the season started well, he scored in the very first round at Bilbao, only after that came a big fast.
He waited two and a half months for another goal, and even three months for another in La Liga. He played 12 games until the Valencia game with a record of one goal and one assist. That was a very poor statistic for a player of that calibre.
But then something changed. Rodrygo broke the scoring silence in the Braga game and scored a much needed goal and added an assist. He then got even more on a roll in the match against Valencia.
The Brazilian youngster scored 2 goals, assisted two more and put in his best performance in a long time. His run was interrupted by the national break, from which he returned half injured, but it didn’t stop his form.
Rodrygo was a key player against Cadiz
Against Cadiz, he was supposed to start on the bench because of a sore knee. But Brahim Díaz had stomach problems just before the game, so Rodrygo had to start. And that ended up winning Real Madrid the game.
in the 14th minute, the 21-year-old striker took a beautiful solo through two Cadiz defenders and headed the ball into the net. In the second half, he again showed his great dribbling, passed through the whitewash through two Andalusian players and scored the second goal.
To make matters worse, he headed the ball towards the whitewash moments later, found Bellingham who added his third goal of the game. Rodrygo has thus accumulated a record of 5 goals and 4 assists in the last 3 games. In the whole season before the duel with Braga he had only 1+1.
