Rodriguez was introduced by coach Carlo Ancelotti to replace Rodrygo when the game only had 3 minutes left. Although he did not play much in his first match in La Liga, the Uruguayan striker still made an impression with the ball from Osasuna defender Unai García and then assisted Asensio to score.

At the age of 11, Rodriguez joined Real’s La Fabrica Academy and continued to improve, before becoming one of the promising young strikers of Real Castilla led by coach Raul Gonzalez.
To create opportunities for this young talent to develop, and also to solve the problem of lack of a backup striker when the main striker Karim Benzema cannot play due to injury, coach Ancelotti has decided to give the opportunity. for Rodriguez to play for Real’s first team against Cacereno in the Copa del Rey and most recently against Osasuna in La Liga.
“Rodriguez is playing well, someone we trust,” coach Carlo Ancelotti praised Rodriguez in a press conference after the win against Osasuna. Ancelotti rarely gives praise to a young player, but he did it with Rodriguez, meaning the striker will be given the opportunity to play in Real’s next matches.
