Gianniotas scores in consecutive matches for Valladolid
Giannis Gianniotas found the back of the net for a second consecutive match in Spain for Valladolid, in his side’s 0-4 win over Leonesa in the Copa del Rey.
After a great debut with Valladolid over the weekend in league play, where Gianniotas scored his side’s winner over Granada, the Greece international was back at it in Thursday’s Copa del Rey action. The 24-year old found the back of the net for a second consecutive match, scoring Valladolid’s second goal in a 0-4 thumping of Leonesa.
Twenty minutes prior, Gianniotas was awarded a penalty, however Fernandez in goal denied his attempt from the spot kick. His failure to convert from 11 meters was quickly forgotten when Gianniotas kept his composure in front of goal to notch in a closed ranged effort, giving his side a 0-2 lead in the 5oth minute.
Gianniotas, who is on loan from Olympiacos at Valladolid, has already impressed early on with Valladolid and will only hope to build on his good performances in the season ahead.
