Thriving Cucurella ready to face his parent club Barca
- The 21-year-old has been involved in five out of 10 goals Getafe have scored this season.
- Apart from starting the attacks, he has also provided two assists and won one penalty.
- Last season, Cucurella scored against Barcelona when he was on loan at Eibar.
Clearly, Cucurella will be looking forward to facing his former side. Getafe host Barcelona this Saturday, kick-off is at 16:00 CET.
The 21-year-old continues impressing on loan. He has already become a starter and missed just one minute of game time. In total, Cucurella has been involved in exactly half of Getafe's league goals, 5 out of 10. The 21-year-old has provided two assists and one penalty during this run.
Getafe coach Jose Bordalas particularly praised Cucurella after the 1-1 Athletic Bilbao draw earlier this month: "We're happy because he's a boy that gives absolutely everything on the pitch, he has good qualities, he crossed for the goal and I put him as a second striker to make a tactical change in the second half to make the opponents doubt themselves."
Cucurella spent last season Eibar on loan. He made 33 appearances across all competitions, scoring 2 goals, including an effort against Barca in La Liga's final fixture. He could now score past his former team with his second side.
