LIGA - Barcelona's best man: Araujo's star is rising
Stoppage time: At top speed, Ronald Araujo pulls past his opponent with huge steps, hits a sharply kicked flank in the middle, which Gerard Pique just missed. A scene that symbolizes Araújo's performance yesterday evening in the game against Granada CF (1: 1). Unrestrained will, outstanding athleticism and an excellent header game - all these attributes distinguish the 22-year-old, who saved Barca a point with his goal in the 90th minute.
The press praises the strong performance of the Uruguayan, who was on the starting line-up for captain Pique. “A lot of Araujo and little Barca” sums up 'Sport' with a view to yesterday's game. And in fact, the 1.88-meter man was the most conspicuous player on the lawn, convinced with uncompromising duel, some dangerous ends with a head and his goal in the 90th minute.
According to 'Mundo Deportivo', a contract extension with Araújo, who is still tied to Blaugrana until 2023, is now a high priority. The Catalan specialist newspaper saw Araujo as the “savior” against Granada.
