La Real will face tomorrow’s game with a hard cup hangover. The ‘aje’ will not be the product of the excesses of the night from Saturday to Sunday, recovered when the team met again yesterday to train, but a consequence stress and injuries that have generated the Cup final. The entire staff made an effort to be able to be under the command of Imanol in The
Charterhouse and the step forward of the footballers has had its consequences.
Three of them have fallen in combat. To confirmed lesions of Asier
Illarramendi and David
Silva, the first in training prior to the final and the second during the match, has joined the Jon
Guridi. It already seemed an excess that, with a grade II tear in the adductor, the azpeitiarra was among the expeditionaries to Seville and his body has not been slow to express it. Imanol confirmed that the midfielder’s pain has reappeared and, therefore, he will not play tomorrow or Sunday in Valencia. In a similar situation is Zaldua although his case is more enigmatic. The coach also questioned the side’s contest in the derby because he was injured in La Cartuja training – he was one of those discarded for the match – but he has been seen training with the rest of his teammates so it will be necessary wait for tomorrow to find out. Sangalli completes the list of confirmed discarded, with the doubt if Moya may be back on the bench.
Imanol gives the call today
Either because of the doubts you have or because you want to hide information from the rival until the last moment, Imanol will offer tomorrow the list of summoned for the party. The citation is awaited with expectation since another who could miss the game is Mikel
Merino. The Mvp of the final and assistant in the penalty play he did not train for ten days before the clash in Seville and in the images that the txuri urdin club has offered today, he has not been seen exercising with the rest. He did everything possible to play the final and his contribution was decisive but it cannot be ruled out that his back ailments have reappeared and he will not be able to play tomorrow. The loss would be of weight since without Silva, without Illarra, without Guridi and without Sangalli, Imanol he would have almost no center of the field. Urko
ZarateIn fact, he has trained with the first team and will almost certainly enter the squad.
