Erik Exposito scores an Balaídos 90 years after his great-grandfather did
Football has very curious things and situations like that experienced in Balaídos. The first player who scored a goal in the history of Balaídos was Graciliano Luis, a canary front played in 1928-29 at Celta Vigo and had the honor of scoring the first goal in the history of Vigo Stadium. In addition to this, He was the great-grandfather of the young player of Las Palmas, Erik Exposito. Things football and coincidences that have life, fate would have it 90 years after his great-grandson debut in the same stadium as a player of Las Palmas and also like his great-grandfather, mark.
That day 1928, Celta thrashed by Real Union Irun 6-0 in the first game in the history of Balaídos. Graciliano, would mark the 1-0 to open the can of a party where vigueses went for a walk. In 2018, a series of circumstances in the form of penalties and injuries, great-grandson made his debut as a player of Las Palmas in the same place as his ancestor opened and to make matters worse as his relative did almost 100 years earlier, scoring a goal. Certainly a fact that is already in the history.
