Four seasons in a row he has been playing the Madrid striker as a professional (between 2012 and 2014 he had participated in Second A with Castilla, practically in young age), since he ended up on loan at the Cordoba in 2015-16. In that campaign, De Tomás scored six goals, of which up to five came in the second round, and that only disputed four days as a starter. One course later, history was repeated with the Valladolid, again in Second A, although with more participation in the second half of the championship (14 titles) and scoring ten of its 14 goals from all over LaLiga. And the tempowered last, already in First, De Tomás was able to materialize six targets in the second round, of the 14 he did with Lightning in LaLiga. 17 of the 19 days he disputed them as headline and complete.So, in these last four consecutive years as a professional has marked 20 goals in the first laps (five per course) and 38 in the second: an average of 9.5 per season. Such a record would surely be worth salvation. It is the highest signing in the history of Espanyol. 20 million fixed, plus 2.5 variables and another in training rights that make it a bet as risky as determined on which to deposit a good part of the weight in the struggle for permanence. Raúl de Tomás assumes the challenge, as he assured in his presentation now a week ago, and his own scoring numbers endorse him. It’s a ‘killer’ of second laps, just the section that the parrots begin this Sunday against Villarreal. The debut of RDT in LaLiga. The climax, however, would come the following campaign, contributing decisively to the Rayo Vallecano promotion with a whopping 17 goals in the second round (with up to three ‘hat-tricks’), of the 24 he ended up scoring. There he did participate in 19 days of the game, of the 21 that make up each lap in Second.
