It's up to a player who has played most of this course to rest. Diop is the third most used player byJos Luis Mendilibarwith 2.313 minutes, only exceeded byRubn Pea(2,610 minutes) andJos ngel(2,411 minutes). The senegals is the owner of the medulla together withJoan Jordn. They have been responsible for not noticing the absence ofDani Garca. Now it's time forGonzalo Escalante, a guarantee of reliability whenever he has played.
The Argentine will be in charge of replacing Diop and form with Jordn in the double pivot. Escalante is still Mendilibar's choice when one of the two owners in the machine room is not available. The technician from Zaldibar decided to give him minutes this Wednesday toSergio lvarez, condemned to the ostracism in his first campaign in Ipurua, but the Asturian one did not take advantage of his opportunity and was replaced in the rest.
