Wolverhampton -

Elkan Baggott tampil apik hadapi gempuran Wolverhampton Wanderers dengan bikin 10 sapuan. Namun, hal itu tak mampu menghindarkan Gillingham dari kekalahan.

Gillingham takluk 0-2 dari Wolves pada babak keempat Carabao Cup 2022/2023 di Molineux Stadium, Rabu (21/12/2022) dini hari WIB. The Gills harus tersingkir akibat gol penalti dari Raul Jimenez dan Rayan Ait Nouri.

Pada laga ini, bek Timnas Indonesia, Elkan Baggott tampil penuh selama 90 menit. Ia bermain di jantung pertahanan dalam formasi 5-3-2 yang dimainkan pelatih Gillingham Neil Harris.

Gillingham yang bermain di kasta keempat Liga Inggris (League Two) jelas kalah kualitas pemain dengan Wolves yang bermain di kasta tertinggi (Premier League). Wolves tampil dengan para pemain terbaiknya semacam Ruben Neves, Daniel Podence, Goncalo Guedes, Nelson Semedo, hingga Diego Costa.

Pasukan Julian Lopetegui langsung menggempur pertahanan Gillingham. Baggott tampil solid menghadapi tekanan Diego Costa cs.

Dikutip dari WhoScored, Baggott memenangi dua duel udara dan membuat 10 sapuan. Bek 20 tahun tersebut menjadi pemain dengan jumlah sapuan terbanyak di laga ini.

Kukuhnya lini pertahanan Gillingham sempat bikin Wolves frustrasi. Mereka gagal bikin gol hingga menit ke-77 padahal melepas total 25 tembakan sepanjang pertandingan. Costa yang jadi ujung tombak hanya bikin satu tembakan ke gawang dari lima percobaan.

Kala buntu, Lopetegui semakin menambah daya gedor dengan memasukan Hwang Hee-Chan, Adama Traore, dan Raul Jimenez. Terus digempur, Gillingham akhirnya tembus akibat kesalahan Cheye Alexander.

Ia melakukan pelanggaran di kotak penalti kala duel udara dengan Costa. Hadiah 12 pas sukses dituntaskan Jimenez menjadi gol. Gol kedua Wolves yang dibuat Ait Nouri lahir di menit akhir.

Setelah ini, Baggott bakal dinanti jadwal padat dengan Gillingham. Mereka harus memainkan tiga laga League Two dalam rentang tujuh hari sebelum menghadapi Leicester City di Piala FA. Hal inilah yang tampaknya jadi alasan Gillingham enggan melepas Baggott untuk membela Timnas Indonesia di Piala AFF 2022.
