Athletic’s visit to Anoeta has resulted in two important losses in his defense. TBoth Yeray and Yuri had to be changed throughout the derby due to their respective muscular problems. The medical report issued by the rojiblanco club in this regard sows doubt that Marcelino can count on the participation of both in the Cup final on April 17 against Barça.
“Yeray and Yuri withdrew yesterday in the League match against Real Sociedad with discomfort in the hamstring muscles of the right leg in both cases”, Says the medical report that Athletic itself has just issued.
Yeray was injured before the first quarter of an hour. The rojiblanco center-back noticed a puncture in the back of the thigh of his leg and was replaced by Nuñez. Something similar happened to Yuri at the start of the second half and he had to leave his place to Balenziaga. The fact that Athletic has issued a medical report regarding the state of both means that it is not just any mishap.
The evils for the Bilbao team do not end there. After the knee operation to which Zarraga was subjected yesterday, Athletic has announced that Nolaskoain will be intervened next week to solve the problems that he has been dragging on his right ankle for many months.
