If the World Cup hasn’t been so great for Bruno Guimarães – he played just over 30 minutes in the two matches against Switzerland and Cameroon – in England he continues to shine in 2022. This Monday (26), when the Championship returns to English matches, Newcastle have secured a win Big 3 x 0 on Leicester away.
Bruno Guimarães, who set up the second goal for the Paraguayan Almiron, in the seventh minute of the first half, performed admirably and was elected man of the match. Brazilian striker Joelinton finished the scoring with a goal in the 32nd minute.
English football’s new rich Newcastle notched up its ninth win in 16 games, reached 33 points and vaulted into the Premier League vice-command – but it could be overtaken by Manchester City, who have 32 points and play tomorrow, away from home. against Leeds.
Midfielder Bruno Guimarães, who scored three goals in the Premier League, now has three assists, reaching six goals in the current edition, behind forwards Roberto Firmino and Gabriel Jesus (10 each) and Gabriel Martinelli (8).
Newcastle rented in January 2022 for €52m. Along with Lyon, Bruno Guimarães now has four assists and eight goals in 33 appearances under manager Eddie Howe, which is the Premier League’s surprise so far.
Counting the end of the 2021/22 season and the first round of 2022/23, Bruno Guimarães is the defensive midfielder with the most goals for England this year (12). Too bad he didn’t have more chances in the cup.
