Etxeberria he was second in this cycle. The first rojiblanco subsidiary eliminated Celta B in the semifinal last weekend and only has one step left to complete the goal.
For this they will have to beat Burgos, either in regulation time or in extra time. There will be no penalty shoot-out and the draw benefits the Castilians as first in the group in the regular league. Those led by Julian
Calero They have taken 10 points from Celta B and Zamora and their goal is to achieve a place in the silver division of state soccer. For something it is a historical set.

Rodriguez it’s a cannon on the right side, Raul
Navarrese Y Saul
Berjon they are two experienced footballers, Miki
Muñoz ‘Mumo’Is a different midfielder in the center of the field and his reference above is Juanma
Garcia, the top scorer of the team with nine goals in his locker. In addition, it has three footballers with a past in Lezama as Unai
