Chilean striker has scored six goals in their last six league appearances.
The smile of the Chilean after marking a goal is already a habitual expression in the games of Barça. Alexis marked yesterday in La Rosaleda his seventh goal in League, the eighth of the season, and is placed to alone two of the second better scorer of Barça in the championship, Cesc Fàbregas, author of nine goals. Messi plays in another league.
Chile has struggled to justify why he threw Barça so determined to recruit and paid by 26 million euros fixed (more than 11.5 in variables) by joining Udinese, but once enjoyed a certain continuity has shown that it can contribute much to Barça. Not single goals, as important as the one that marked in Bernabéu or both that it signed against Rayo to open the marker, but an extraordinary sacrifice capacity and a great talent when opening spaces for their partners.
The injury he suffered in Anoeta and that kept him sidelined for six weeks cut short an adaptation that is slow, but steady. The 'Wonder Boy' has scored six goals in their last six league games and has become a permanent fixture in the schemes of Pep Guardiola, who has rescued the best version of Alexis just when you can not count Villa.
