Julen Lopetegui, coach of the Seville, has the doubt at the last moment of Luke
Ocampos, but you can count on Diego
Carlos in this Sunday’s derby against Betis after the Brazilian was the big news in the last training session held at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán stadium. The Argentine has a physical problem that the coach did not want to specify in his press conference and that has prevented him from training, although the former coach will wait until the last moment to see if he can count on one of the most important players on his squad and who was separated for a month by a hard tackle from Getafe defender Djené.
For his part, Diego Carlos is already back after the powerful defender did not exercise with the group in the two previous sessions and his presence in the duel against Manuel Pellegrini’s men had been questioned, but fortunately for the interests of the team. Nervionense painting will not miss the appointment.
Diego Carlos had suffered a small muscle injury during the game against Borussia Dortmund, in which he was treated on the sidelines and was able to continue, but upon returning from the expedition from Germany the player continued to feel uncomfortable. After resting on Wednesday, both he and Koundé and Suso did not participate in Thursday’s training, first to prepare for the derby, although both the Dutchman and the Cadiz returned with the group on Friday.
In this way, Lopetegui will be able to have his usual pair of center-backs, key to the team’s defensive system, and Aleix Vidal from Tarragona is the only confirmed casualty after suffering a muscle injury during the game against Barcelona at the Camp Nou in the that the Andalusians said goodbye to the Cup final when Koeman’s men forced the extension in the last minute of the extension time.
