Roberto Alvarado, Chivas' player to watch against Puebla.

02/04/2024 15:00 / Roberto García

Guadalajara's attack has had a constant protagonist this Clausura 2024: Roberto 'Piojo' Alvarado, an attacker in every sense of the word. To classify him as a striker or winger would be inaccurate, as his quality and skills allow him to be an all-rounder in the final third of the field.

The player from Guanajuato is in his fifth semester with the Rebaño Sagrado, with whom he is gradually taking on an increasingly important role. His 12 goals for Chiverío prove it and, with a view to this Saturday's match against Puebla, we are convinced that he will be the player to follow closely.

So far in the championship, Roberto has only missed 7 minutes, as he came on as a substitute against Xolos, San Luis and Mazatlán. This positions him as one of the Guadalajara players with the most minutes in the semester. In addition, the red and white 25 has scored 6 goals so far in the tournament and will have to add one more in the CONCACAF Champions Cup 2024.

From the right side, the skillful left-footed player has the ability to take the ball, face the ball or team up to face the goal and have the possibility of shooting or assisting the best positioned teammate.

His versatility allows him to play in different roles in the Guadalajara scheme, as he has also appeared in the attacking axis and in the midfield, where he has been a great playmaker up front. As if that were not enough, 'Piojo' has an outstanding defensive sacrifice, which is reflected in the ball recovery for Chivas, as he has rescued 28 balls for Fernando Gago's team.

These factors, added to the fact that he is a permanent fixture in the Rebaño Sagrado's starting lineup, make Roberto Alvarado the player to watch on Matchday 14 for Chivas, which will try to link victories to continue in the fight for a place at the top of the standings.
