35 minutes, James Rodriguez turned the defender before receiving the ball from Hwang In-Beom. He fired a decisive shot with his left foot, sending the ball into the net in an unstoppable trajectory.
After scoring, James ran towards the stands and had a challenging celebration. This is the first goal of the former Real Madrid star after 7 matches. In the second half, James also made a mark with an assist for Bakambu to score to make it 3-0. In the end, Olympiacos beat Asteras Tripolis 5 goals without removing at home.
James is in pretty good form with 3 goals, 2 assists after 10 appearances in the 2022/23 season. In the last minutes, the Colombian midfielder also expressed anger when he was substituted by coach Miguel Gonzalez.
Previously, Olympiacos reached an agreement to borrow James Rodriguez until the end of this season from the host team Al-Rayyan, Qatar. The Greek champion is willing to pay 50% of his salary ($3 million) for Rodriguez.
Rodriguez will return to Al-Rayyan at the end of this season because he still has a contract with the Qatar team until 2024.
He joined Al-Rayyan at the end of September 2021 but did not leave much of an impression. The 31-year-old striker scored 3 goals in 9 games in the 2021/22 season.
