Diego Valencia makes his debut with his new club in Greece: he almost scores a great goal

Diego Valencia is back. The Catholic University-educated striker, after months of uncertainty about his future at Salernitana, finally made his debut at his new club, Atromitos of Greece, where he hopes to make up for lost time with the Italian club, where he played little or not at all.

Valencia played as a starter for the Greek team, which is bottom of the competition with two defeats in the early rounds. At least this Monday, when the national striker was on the pitch, there was a draw against Volos NFC, which has two points on the table.

The account was opened in the 36th minute by Karol Angielski for Atromitos. A special move, because after a cross from the right, the Polish striker seemed to define before the opposing goalkeeper left in desperation. He managed to shoot the ball, but it was unclear whether it would end up in the goal.

For the same reason, the Chilean struggled to score the ball. And he almost did it, it could have been his first goal for his new club. But finally the ball went in and belonged to his teammate, making it 1-0.

However, the triumph was by no means permanent. Lucas Acevedo, Diego Valencia’s teammate, scored a goal against him in the 46th minute, which meant the final 1-1 of the game. They then looked for the winning goal, but were unable to break through the opponent’s goal again.

This leaves Diego Valencia’s team in last place in the table with just one point, albeit one game less. Meanwhile, on a personal level, the former UC began to regain lost relevance in Europe, where he came after his great campaign with the Crusaders in 2021.

What were Diego Valencia’s numbers in Salernitana?

In the 2022/23 season of the Italian Serie A, Diego Valencia was barely able to play 12 games, none of them as a regular player. He also missed the finish line due to a serious injury to his left thigh.
