On Second there is no small enemy, but, on paper, the Real Zaragoza This Sunday has a propitious occasion to make amends for the defeat in La Romareda against Leganés. Amorebieta have only lost three of their eight games at the facilities of the Athletic Bilbao in Lezama, where he plays at home as his field of play has not been validated for the category. Urritxe, but it is penultimate with only 13 points and its potential is far from that of the first three classified, with whom Zaragoza have to face consecutively to conclude the first round.

So a victory against Amorebieta, apart from recovering lost ground, would allow us to face the games against the Éibar, Almería and Tenerife. And that is the slogan that has been installed in the Real Zaragoza dressing room and that he was in charge of transmitting this Thursday Cristian Alvarez: “The game against Amorebieta is important. Always after a defeat you have to win. It is what we are going to look for there. It is important to get up quickly and keep pushing up, which is what we have been doing for a few weeks.”

Zaragoza is now installed in the middle of the table, at the same distance, five points, from the ‘playoff’ than from the relegation, and aims to reach the Christmas break without stress and without falling too far from the top six positions.

Juan Ignacio MartinezAs is his general rule, he will make changes to the team against Amorebieta again. The coach recovers Fran Gámez once his sanction for accumulating yellows has been fulfilled and will replace Lluis López, passing Francés to the central zone of the defense along with Jair, while Chavarría, Vada and Narváez also point to the eleven.

The first of them had to be replaced two days ago due to a contracture in the adductor of his right leg and JIM preferred not to risk last Monday, but this Sunday he will start again to the detriment of Nieto.

For its part, Vada and Narváez have already been playing the second 45 minutes for two games after recovering from their respective fibrillar ruptures and everything indicates that in Lezama they will already be headlines to the detriment of Zapater and Bermejo. Another footballer with options to play at the beginning is Petrovic, who would enter instead of Eguaras.
