Araos equals Corinthians' goals in two matches in Mexico

Araos equals Corinthians’ goals in two matches in Mexico

Midfielder Angelo Araus, in the second match for Necaxa from Mexico, equaled the number of goals he scored for Corinthians in the past four seasons. He scored the first goal for his team in a 4-1 victory over Santos Laguna, in a match valid for the second round of the local championship.

In the bid, Araus took advantage of the goalkeeper’s bounce after a kick from the entrance to the area, controlling his torso and playing for the net, opening the scoring in the fencing. This was his second match for the team, traditional in domestic football. For Timão, the only goal was against Atlético-MG, for the Brazilian 2020, at Mineirão.

After more than three years at Parque São Jorge, where he had not had much success, Araus was sold to the Mexican club in December of last year. Necaxa bought 50% of the rights of the Chilean player – the rest remained with Timão. That is, the club is still interested in the athlete’s good performance in considering a future profit.

Corinthians consider that with the deal, they can keep a percentage longer than the current contract, because Araus’ contract with Timão was valid until July 2023. With Necaxa, the contract runs until the end of 2024.

In the jersey of the Parque São Jorge club, where he arrived in the middle of 2018, Araus played only 61 matches and, in addition to the goal, distributed five assists. His last appearance on the field was on September 12, in a 1-1 draw with Atlético-Go in the Brazilian Campionato.
