The load of games is starting to take its toll on all the teams and Rayo Vallecano is no exception. The derby in Santo Domingo has set off alarms, since the two right-backs of the franjirroja squad ended with discomfort. “Tito received a blow to the knee and I had to replace him. Lucho (Advíncula) has also suffered another blow and we are left with one less,” he admitted. Paco Jémez, who is still pending their evolution, although this time there are hardly 72 hours to recover them. Málaga awaits for Thursday's game (Vallecas, 21:45).
“They are strong blows and we have little time to recover, but we will do everything possible to do so. They both play practically the same position and we will try, by all means, to recover one of them“confessed the coach, who could not count that day in Alcorcón with Joni Montiel. The Vallecano playmaker did not enter the call because he had a muscular problem. The same one that this Tuesday had to do alternative work in training.
They were not the only franjirrojos players who ended up with discomfort, or directly injured, in this resumption of the championship. The central Milic had to be replaced in the Riazor match and will be out for about two or three weeks, as confirmed by Paco. Thus joining, in the infirmary, Pozo, Alberto, Baby and Ulloa. The case of Pozo, who will miss the rest of the season, also worries the coaching staff: “If he has not been cured, after all this time, it is that he has not found the origin.”
