Why Gabigol is a key piece for Flamengo’s success

As Gabriel Barbosa leads Flamengo, there is a huge chance that the club can get their shot at a title win. The past few runs in the Serie A have proved that Flamengo has what it takes to win big, and the star has a lot of impact on their success.

Flamengo is known to be one of the best squads that the Serie A has ever seen, and it is all thanks to the brilliance on display by Gabigol. The star has proved his worth as a key player who leads the offence in his stead.

As one of the best scorers for Flamengo, Gabigol has been the main man over the years and the past two league titles can be credited to his wise antics. As far as the scoring goes, Flamengo has never lost a game when he scores a goal.

Gabigol left a poor run in the Italian Serie A to help Flamengo rise as one of the best teams in the league. So far, he’s been the biggest star that the team has to offer and it looks like he can thrive as well.

Flamengo’s offence with Gabigol

Aside from that winning record of 28-5-0 when he scores in the game, Gabigol’s past few runs have seen him evolve and lay down big numbers. In 17 games, the star has scored 18 times and has more than one goal per match.

In 2019, Gabigol finished the season with 43 goals in 59 games. He led Flamengo to win the Serie A title all the way to the Copa Libertadores and carried them to the FIFA Club World Cup Final. That’s how big of a star Gabigol is.

Gabigol is a formidable player and he is the best scorer in the whole Serie A for some time now. That is one of the reasons why Flamengo has been able to win big even when they have some issues on both ends of the pitch.

As Flamengo continues to claw their way back into the top of the Serie A table, Gabigol’s success plays a huge role in lifting the team. The star’s scoring prowess proved that there is not much to talk about when it comes to his offence since he does it so well.

Flamengo turned into one of the best offensive clubs in Gabigol’s watch, and he will keep on pulling off the same feats over and over again.

Flamengo’s chances to win this season

As long as Gabigol stays healthy, Flamengo has a huge chance to win the title for the third time in a row. They have gone through many changes with their coaches, but never took out one of their main stars.

It does not matter if Gabigol comes off the bench or not. He is not like other stars out there who want to be a part of the team’s starting XI all the time. He plays where he can be more efficient. If the coach sees him as a spark for the second unit then so be it.

This is why Gabigol is a key star for Flamengo for many years to come. As long as the star striker keeps his groove, there is no way that the club will lose in most of their games. Flamengo has found a gem in Gabigol, and they are keen to keep him for good.
