Julio Enciso was instrumental in another steal of the big man in yesterday’s game against City with one of the finest goals of the season, as his team earned a valuable draw at home to the league champions. He thus put a beautiful icing on the cake to his Brighton’s historic season.
Already last season Brighton were knocking on the gates of European football and their participation in European competitions missed them by just five points after a great finish in the end. This year, the selection of Italian manager Roberto de Zerbi finally did it.
Brighton already managed to secure their historic promotion to the Europa League in the last round. Manchester City also managed to win the league title in the previous round. The match of the 32nd round of the Premier League between the two teams could be played there without stress and everything was heading towards a nice spectacle.
In the end, the match not only showed beautiful offensive football, with the home side outshooting Pep Guardiola’s revamped selection in total shots and those on target. Moreover, the duel produced a beautiful moment of football that will surely be a contender for the most beautiful goal of the season.
Phil Foden opened the scoring in the 25th minute, taking advantage of a pass from Erling Haland and sending the ball into the home goalkeeper’s exposed net. But the home side didn’t fold their arms and managed to equalise before the change of sides.
A beautiful shot from outside the box was scored by the 19-year-old Paraguayan acquisition. In fact, Julio Enciso showed form for the big men and after scoring goals for Chelsea and Arsenal in the spring, he also asserted himself against the league champion.
In the 38th minute, he took the ball in the middle of the field and with an uncatchable shot, he took over as the challenger for the most beautiful goal of the season. Although Brighton were even reaching for the win in the second half, the two teams eventually parted amicably.
