The striker got a brace against FC Krasnodar
An excellent run from February through to March has seen Valencia CF striker Rodrigo hit his best scoring form of the 2018/19 season. He found the net twice in the game against FC Krasnodar, extending his streak to four goals in the last three games in all competitions.
The forward, who turned 28 on Wednesday, took just 12 minutes to open the scoring against the Russian side in the UEFA Europa League first leg encounter. He would double his side's lead just 12 minutes later, before being taken off just past the hour mark to rest him ahead of an important series of fixtures for Valencia CF.
Rodrigo had previously scored against Real Betis in the Copa del Rey and Athletic Club in LaLiga on his current run, adding to the several vital goals he has to his name for the season. He is now on 11 for the season, already his second best return as a Valencia CF player.
