The Eibar, in the hands of Kike García

The injuries of Charles and Enrich fill him with responsibility at the peak moment

The Eibar is entrusted to the goals of Kike Garcia to continue dreaming in a European key. With Sergi Enrich and Charles Dias in the infirmary, the continental ticket will depend to a large extent on the scoring inspiration of the Manchego striker, the only attacker available to José Luis Mendilibar in the momentous encounter that will be played by the armourer on Saturday at Benito Villamarín.

Since his appearance in Ipurua, he has been a player who has had the confidence of the coach, but he has never been seen in an equal. The six weeks that will be Charles in the dry dock and the complications that have occurred in the recovery of Enrich have left him alone before the danger. The manchego is forced to take a step forward.

The challenge that lies ahead is huge and full of responsibility. He is the top scorer of Eibar in the second round, but all the goals he has done this season have been with another forward at his side. Now he will have to learn to survive alone. The European train does not wait and Kike Garcia will have to respond to the demand from the first day, because Eibar can not afford any more trips.

Second opportunity

The former Real Murcia already showed last season that the goal does not get smaller when the pressure increases. He was one of those who kept the European flame alive until the final weeks of the championship. The defeat against Athletic ended the European dream. Fate has given him a second chance and he does not want to waste it.
