The outstanding Portuguese youth internationalist seemed to have lost his way in the transition to the senior game with Benfica appearing keen to offload him despite a long term contract in place.
?: Jota vs Real Betis;
Real Betis is a completely different proposition to the Dingwall side but if anything Jota put in an even more eye-catching and impressive performance.
There were a few tricks and step-overs but also some decisive, driving runs down the right wing- none more so than the assist for Albian Ajeti’s opening goal.
Jota seems a perfect fit for ‘Ange-Ball’ Sunday’s visit to the plastic pitch at Livingston will be another entirely new challenge but with 7,000 away fans he won’t be short of encouragement.
