Real Madrid His 9 goals and 10 assists between League and Champions they place him at the top in his position
S i the first season of Achraf in Dortmund was good, the second is being doubly good . To the point that it has allowed him to fully enter the Olympus of the offensive wingers who reign or have reigned in the major leagues in recent seasons.
Achraf left Real Madrid in looking for the minutes he was denied with Carvajal and two years later his performance allows him to rub shoulders with names like those of Maicon, Alves, Marcelo, Jordi Alba, Kimmich, Arnold, Lahm, Carvajal and company .
According to Opta Sports data, Achraf is in an offensive baggage with which he already exceeds great references in his lateral-lane position . In this way, taking into account the league and European competition matches, the young player on loan from Madrid to Dortmund translates his offensive output this season into 19 goals (directly or indirectly): 9 goals and 10 assists .
The last impulse to his spectacular offensive wealth was given in the last game of the Bundesliga against the Paderborn , in which he scored the fourth goal of Dortmund's win (6-1). A goal that is not one more in Achraf's account but allows him to equal the number of 19 goals (adding goals and assists) that Maicon signed with Inter in 09 -10 in the year of the Italian triplet with Mourinho on the bench. Already ahead he only had the 22 goals in which he influenced Dani Alves directly or indirectly with Barelona in 09-10 (4 goals and 18 assists) .
Achraf is in a position to assault that Brazilian record with that influence in 19 goals counting only League and Champions . The rest of the list of the 'top' lateral-lanes with the highest offensive production in recent years, according to Opta, is completed in their first positions Kimmich 18 (17-18); Jordi Alba 16 (18-19), Alexander Arnold 16 (18-19); Lahm 15 (12-13), Marcelo 14 (16-17) or Carvajal 10 (16-17).
The numbers make Achraf one of the best wingers in the world right now. Madrid rubs his hands with the explosion of his footballer, but at the same time he is presented with a problem that must be solved. In the club there is debate about whether to make cash with the youth squad or get a sports performance from him.
A complicated situation because the presence of Carvajal owner and lord of the right side since season 13-14 complicates the coexistence of the two in Madrid. Achraf dreams of returning to Madrid, but he wants to return being important and not to be Carvajal's substitute and lose all the cache he has gained in these last two years in Dortmund .
Achraf's agent was clear about the player's intentions at the end of the season, in which he will have to return to Madrid. "He will join Madrid when the championship ends. We will see what happens next. He intends to play games, like this year, which has been in every starting game . There is no rush, the only claim is to play games on that path of formation, "he said in Onda Madrid.
