Jon Bautista is the Laliga Smartbank Player of March 2023.
Jon Bautista, the SD Eibar forward assisted his team in going undefeated in the month as they won three games, drew one, and finished first in the standings with 63 points. With the final pass for the game’s lone goal against CD Tenerife, the 27-year-old from Menorca contributed significantly to Los Armeros’ three victories. He scored the game’s lone goal against Burgos CF a week later, and then capped off an incredible month with two more assists and the game-winning goal in Eibar’s comeback victory over CD Mirandes at Anduva.
The number 18 of Eibar replaces Luis Roja of Deportivo Alaves, who got the honor in February. Raul Garcia de Haro of CD Mirandes and Myrto Uzuni of Granada CF were also on this month’s shortlist, but Bautista emerged victorious in the final voting.
