He Alaves he plays it in the New
Skunk. Arrives very
touched, with four consecutive defeats and hurt by the harsh rebuke of Josean
Querejeta, president of Saski Baskonia S.A.D., which brings together the majority shareholding in the albiazul entity. However, despite going through a very worrying situation, he still depends on himself to save himself. A win, or even a draw, this afternoon (7.30 p.m.), would be a remarkable step forward.
The team is obliged to give a punch on the table. He has gotten himself into trouble, on his own merits. After starting this crazy league final straight with everything in favor to achieve the permanence in a loose way, life has been complicated unexpectedly. With only three points harvested in six days -a win and five losses, four of them in a row-, is one of the worst teams in this league stage.
After the hard blow received before him Pomegranate, Josean
Querejeta, who always speaks with complete clarity, directly accused the footballers of the current scenario last Thursday. “If we are not able to reverse this situation and if the players do not step forward, if they do not bring out their competitiveness and professionalism, next year we will be in the Second Division“, he claimed.
“We are in your hands, we depend on your professionalism and it is time to take a step forward, because what we have seen so far is depressing,” he stressed. “This team, in its attitude, its staging and its effort, is not the team we had before the pandemic“He added. To complete his harangue, he made it clear that “this is a matter of the players, not the coach“

“ANDThis is a game of maximum demand and responsibility; this in particular even more knowing where we come from”, He assumed in clear reference to the last four defeats suffered and the very poor image offered by his team. “We have to go with everything there, but we need the best version of the whole world for a crash that will be very hard“He demanded.
Opposite, you will find a Valladolid what with 36 points, one advantage over Alaves, anchored in the 35 since he defeated the Real
Society in Mendizorrotza. Both teams face an excellent opportunity to practically seal their salvation. Whoever wins will secure it virtually. A draw could be a positive result for both.
The pucelanos do not have a brilliant streak either, but they have managed, point by point, to gain ground in the fight for salvation. With seven points in six games, they present a balance of a triumph, four draws and a defeat; with four goals for and four against.
“Do not give away”
The technician of Bergara He again stressed that the team “needs to improve in actions without the ball.” Yesterday he demanded again to his pupils to throw the rest. “You have to get rivals to generate less, you should not give anything away or make mistakes“He stressed. He recalled the difficulty of, at this point, tracing a score against, but claimed the team “be able to be involved in the game even if they score first“
