Pepelu: a key player for Valencia CF 

The Valencia CF midfielder is the player with the most minutes and starts in the team, the one who makes the most recoveries and the second highest scorer

Since his arrival at Valencia CF last July, he has become a fundamental pillar in Rubén Baraja's schemes, offering a great talent and route to the midfield of the Valencianista team.

The player from Denia has played practically all the matches of LALIGA EA Sports 23-24 (36 matches of the 37 games played) in which he has played 3,215 minutes (Valencia CF player with more minutes and starts in this LALIGA season). The midfielder has made the most passes in the team (1,913), has made the most recoveries (46) and is also the second highest scorer of the squad in LALIGA with 7 goals.

This scoring facet has led him to be the player, among the five major leagues, who has scored the most goals from the penalty spot (7). He scored against UD Las Palmas, Granada CF, Villarreal CF (x2), Real Betis, FC Barcelona and Girona FC from the penalty point in LALIGA. He also scored another goal from the spot against RC Celta de Vigo in the round of 16 of the Copa del Rey 23-24. Therefore, Pepelu accumulates 8 goals and 1 assist between all competitions this season.

With these records, he has demonstrated an enormous goal scoring reliability from penalty kicks, being his most important goal scorer in all competitions this season.

His great performance led him, in January, to achieve a record in LALIGA EA Sports 23-24. The Valencia CF midfielder recovered 12 possessions in the midfield third against Athletic Club, being the only player in LALIGA 23-24 to reach that figure during a match.

With all this, Pepelu has been nominated for the LALIGA EA Sports 23-24 TOTS, the awards that distinguish the best team of the season in the national competition.
