Mario Hernández’s time has come. The youth squad had not yet been able to make his debut with Rayo in the First Division, but everything indicates that the wait will end this Sunday. The usual owner of the right wing was being Iván Balliu, to the point that the international for Albania had played absolutely everything, but saw the fifth yellow at El Sadar and it will close the cycle against Elche.
Mario Hernández, 22, has gone to this league start in all Iraola calls. However, he has not had a chance given the spectacular form of his teammate Balliu. The right-hander – along with Catena and Fran García – is the only one who has added 720 minutes on the pitch. In addition, he has to his credit an assist, corresponding to Falcao’s goal against Cádiz. All this has opened the doors of the national team two years later.
For his part, the Rayista youth squad has continued to work and vindicate himself. Without going further, the defender from Usera scored in the victory (2-1) in the training match disputed last week against Rayo Majadahonda. Mario is postulated as the natural alternative on the right side, where a position was already disputed last season with Advíncula. If its premiere takes place this day, only Arboleda, Iker Recio, Pozo, Jorge and Sergio Moreno would remain unpublished this course.
