But first they must eliminateMirandés and Granada,who also dream of that final, and before that they should be measured this noon in theReale Arena.A match in which there will be absences after the efforts of both. In theRealit’s doubtOdegaard, which was touched byBernabeuand did not train yesterday. If Imanol decides to reserve you for the Mirandés it will be Sangalli who occupies his position. In theAthleticthe same thing happens andRaul Garciawill rest to be able to face thePomegranate. Worse has itYuri, that with a contracture you can miss both games.
TheReal societyexpect to get rid of the clear defeat by2-0in the derby of the first round, which was completely surpassed by theAthletic, and achieve a victory that gives you three very important points in the fight forEurope. That day could be a turning point for a wholetxuriurdinwhich has changed so much that six of its headlines this afternoon will be different from then.
TheRealwent out toSan MaméslastAugust 30thwith an eleven formed byMoyá, Zaldua, Diego Llorente, Zubeldia, Aihen, Illarramendi, Odegaard, Merino, Januzaj, Willian José and Oyarzabal.Those ofImanol SheriffThey played their worst game of the season and were clearly overcome.
The blue and white team could not react better to that result, since it linked three consecutive victories that put him in European positions in which he has been until last weekend, thanks to the progression he has had in his game.
ImanolIt has been introducing since that day some new players, until reaching a team that seems kind of today, always taking into account the casualties due to injury of important men likeIllarramendi, Zurutuzaand these last daysLlorente.
Monreal, signed late that August, sat atAihenfrom the day after that derby, andFor yourhe took away with his good performances from that day the ownership toJanuzaj.
AritzIt also began to be of the game when he overcame the injury he had, although he had to go back to the infirmary for new physical problems. It seems that he comes to the appointment ofReale Arenaand will be a couple in the center of the back of aRobin Le Normandwhich has been an urgent solution for the casualties of his demarcation partners.
Alex RemiroHe was the next to take a place in the team of the coach ofOrio. The Navarrese goalkeeper will play his first derby in the elite and will do it with the shirttxuriurdin, when until a little over a year ago it seemed that he would do it with the red and white.
The latest realistic novelty tomorrow, regarding the duel ofBilbao, will be the presence in tip ofAlex Isakwhich comes unleashed, with seven goals in the last five games.
After the immense joy lived by himAthleticlast thursday inCup, the lions face an important date in the League in which they will try to break the bad run of the team, where it has been more than two months without obtaining a victory. Nevertheless,GaritanoIt will have three very important casualties in its schemes.
To the already known absence ofIñigo Martínezby sanction is added that of two other untouchables asYuri Berchiche and Raúl García.The Gipuzkoan side ended the clash against theBarçawith physical problems from which he has not recovered and the first leg of the semifinals may also be lost due to a contracture.
The Navarrese, on the other hand, did not complete yesterday’s session because of an overload in the rotational musculature of the right hip. BeforeGetafe and BarçaHe was very tired, noticing in excess the large number of minutes he has played so far. He will rest to recover and be available in the first leg of the semifinals.
The other absent will be the one already mentionedIñigo Martínez,who saw the fifth yellow before theGetafe. This is another low of tremendous importance, since it is the defender who had been playing better. In addition, this would forceGaritanoto pull the subsidiary or adapt to another player in case you want to use the three central system that works so well for you.
