Wednesday, March 4, 2020. Miranda de Ebro, Burgos. Today marks a year since the Real qualified for a Copa del Rey final that they have not played yet. In Anduva, before 1,000 aroused fans who were happy and packed one of the funds of the Burgos field, the Donostiarras defended the 2-1 of the first leg in Anoeta also winning in Miranda with a goal from Oyarzabal penalty in an exercise of absolute pragmatism and sobriety. The parish did not even suffer and was able to enjoy the last moment of joy shared with his team, because from there the world stopped for the sake of the coronavirus. The pandemic has prevented the fans and the team from being able to travel together again. After the meeting, the party of the players fused with the fans was total and also that of a Imanol hugs delivery man.

The Azpeitiarra midfielder does not hesitate to affirm in an interview in MD that that tie “was a brown one for us, that’s the truth.” Explain what “Martin, Modibo and I were going to death with the Mirandés, but the brown one was huge. Imagine that we left out the Real having a contract with the Real ”. Is aware Guridi that “hosts could have fallen on us from all sides.” In any case, for him it was an enriching experience: “It was very strange, but at the same time I really liked it.”
That tie took place in the midst of a climate of euphoria, with a point of collective madness. In the first leg, the fans turned upside down and responded en masse to the club’s call to cheer on the players upon their arrival at the stadium. On the way back, around 4,500 realistic followers were left without a ticket. There were 5,500 requests. La Real was forced to issue a statement in which it stated: “We regret the discomfort caused to the fans who have not been able to get tickets through our sponsor Viajes Halcón to attend the Copa de Miranda de Ebro match. tickets for this event have made it impossible to satisfy all the requests of our partners ”. 500 of those locations were raffled, 200 were delivered to the clubs and 112 were managed by the official travel agency.
A year has passed since that happy day, with lamb and ‘Dale Cavese’ for 1,000 lucky ‘enhance them’.
