AS: “Douvikas is not Papadopoulos”


The presence of Tasos Douvikas at Telta the website of the Spanish newspaper “AS” is glorified, after the appearance he made on Saturday against Barcelona, ​​for the 16th matchday of LaLiga.

With Title “Douvikas is not Papadopoulos“, the Spanish journalist analyzes the reasons why the international striker can shine in the first division of the Spanish league.

Almost everything that happened in Barcelona was positive for Celta, except for the final result. Before the Blaugrana’s return, the five-man defense set up by Rafa Benitez was close to perfection, the midfield worked like it hadn’t in a while, and the forward line was “deadly”. The two strikers of the team scored and in the case of the goal achieved by Tasos Douvidas it marked the great start in the league“, initially writes the article.

And he adds: “The Greek striker had some minutes in the previous two matches and in the third match he participated in, he made his scoring debut as a Telta player. He took advantage of Aspa’s pass and managed to beat Ter Stegen with a diagonal shot. He wasn’t nervous against one of the best goalkeepers in the world and didn’t shy away from the threat of having a centre-back as strong as Ronald Araujo behind him. A goal that explains why 12 million euros were given to Utrecht at the end of last August».

Abraham Martinez’s article then states: “Douvikas is in a hurry to justify himself. In less than an hour of play, a total of 48 minutes, he has already achieved what his compatriot Dimitris Papadopoulos failed to achieve in 1.5 seasons in the Telta jersey. For the Greek striker who ended up at Balaidos in the 2010 winter transfer window with Second Division side Telta, scoring a goal in Spanish football proved to be a difficult task.».

One of the 24-year-old striker’s qualities is the fact that he was top scorer in the Dutch league last season, with 20 goals in 34 games. On top of everything else, he is reported to have a great work ethic and if there is anyone who appreciates that mentality it is Rafa Benitez“, he adds.
