Aspas temporarily denied milestone by coronavirus
Iago Aspas was about to make history until the coronavirus came along. He is just two goals away from making history and La Liga is suspended indefinitely.
The Spanish striker was not expecting that his good goalscoring form would be halted suddenly by a global pandemic which has brought the whole planet to a halt. Neither him nor anyone else.
Just before COVID-19 intervened, Aspas was about to join a select club of players who had scored 100 La Liga goals, 'AS' reports.
Celta's main man up front has scored no less than 98 goals, 96 for Celta and two for Sevilla. He is just a couple of goals away from becoming the 78th footaller in Spanish football history to get 100 La Liga goals.
He has a total of 98 goals and 30 assists in 204 matches. The next people to pass are Julen Guerrero (101), Luis Enrique (102) and Fernando Torres (103). He cannot do that until the coronavirus has passed though.
