Teams Divock Origi Scores Against All Suffer The Following Season

Teams Divock Origi Scores Against All Suffer The Following Season

Football teams beware, Divock Origi has a curse to pass on and it will damage your season.

Liverpool striker Origi became somewhat of a hero at Anfield last season. The Belgian scored last minute goals in the Premier League to keep the Reds' dream of winning the title alive and more importantly scored in the Champions League semi final and final.

If Barcelona and Spurs thought his goals were a big blow at the time then what they didn't realise is the lasting effect the goals would have on them.

The six teams he scored against last season have all had bad starts to the season whilst five teams he scored against in previous seasons have suffered relegations.

Since conceding against Origi, Barcelona have lost the Copa del Rey final and started La Liga with just three wins from their opening six games, already sitting four points behind leaders Real Madrid.

Spurs' recent troubles have been put down to Mauricio Pochettino and Christian Eriksen but it seems it was Origi's goal in the Champions League final that's led to them only winning twice this season, drawing with Olympiakos and losing to League Two Colchester United on penalties in the Carabao Cup.

When Divock Origi Went Down Holding The Wrong Leg After 'Foul' From Victor Lindelof

Wolves have gone from top six contenders to being 19th in the Premier League and without a win all season, with only Watford below them, who Origi also scored against last season.

If you thought that Newcastle United's troubles came from moving from Rafa Benitez to Steve Bruce then you'd be wrong, Origi's 86th minute winner against the Magpies last season is why they're one point clear of the relegation zone currently.

Marco Silva is currently bookies favourite to be next Premier League manager to leave his club and that's down into the former Lille striker's injury time winner in the Merseyside derby.

In the 2016/17 season Origi's goals led to relegations for both Sunderland and Middlesbrough, with the Black Cats falling two divisions below in order to avoid more punishment by the 24-year-old.

And in 2015/16 all three relegated sides, West Brom, Stoke and Aston Villa, conceded against the Reds' striker.

Deny it all you like but Origi's goals break teams to a level beyond the match he's playing in.
