Borja Iglesias has been named the LaLiga Santander Player of the Month for August. The attacker has kicked off his fourth season with Real Betis in rip-roaring form, helping the Andalusian outfit make a storming start to the league championship.
Betis won their first three games of the LaLiga Santander 2022/23 season in August, a spotless record in which Borja Iglesias has been particularly impressive with a four-goal haul.
The Galician netted the opening goal of the season for Betis in the 3-0 victory over Elche CF. Subsequently, his brace gave Los Verdiblancos an important 2-1 away win over RCD Mallorca, and another Iglesias strike was decisive in overcoming CA Osasuna 1-0 to situate Betis in the upper echelons of the table.
And so Borja Iglesias takes home the first LaLiga Santander Player of the Month trophy, outdoing the other contenders for the award: Robert Lewandowski (FC Barcelona), Gero Rulli (Villarreal CF), Vini Jr. (Real Madrid), Iago Aspas (RC Celta), Chimy Avila (CA Osasuna) and Kang-In Lee (RCD Mallorca)
