Alvaro Odriozola (San Sebastián, 14/12/1995) is a new Real Madrid player. The European champions have strengthened their ranks with one of the continent’s most promising young defenders. A right-back known for his lung-busting runs, he has been at the World Cup in Russia with the Spanish national team, and his pace and ability to overlap are some of his significant assets. In the 2017/18 campaign, Odriozola made 35 LaLiga appearances for Real Sociedad, providing 4 assists and recording more crosses into the box than any other player in the team. He also made his competitive European debut, playing 6 times in the Europa League and bagging his first goal against Salzburg.
