Here is yet another story of a Samba skill artist working his magic in front of his home crowd. Brazilian players are found in virtually every domestic league in Europe. Except, this name might be unfamiliar.
Jajá, a forward playing in the Ukrainian Premier League, has an opportunity to write his own transfer out of town if he can continue to dominate his opponents in his UEFA Cup group much like he has in the UPL. The 22-year old competes for Metalist Kharkiv who currently sit in third place in the UPL which is quickly gaining prestige on the continent as one of the up-and-coming leagues.
Jajá leads his club and the league with seven goals scored in ten matches. He is joined by fellow Brazilian midfielder Edmar who famously scored two goals (one home and one away) against Everton in last season's UEFA Cup.
After Metalist faces off against Benfica, Hertha Berlin, Olympiacos, and Galatasaray, you will know the story of Jajá very well.
Prediction: Jajá scores a total of four goals in the four group matches to lead Metalist Kharkiv into the final 32.
