Elustondo suffers a contracture

Apart from the result, the worst of the defeat against Napoli on the second day of the Europa League group stage was Aritz Elustondo's injury while doing warm-up exercises with the rest of the players who were starters in Anoeta.

Against him Naples The Frenchman Modibo Sagnan started, almost without heating up. He took advantage of his opportunity well, because after a hesitant start, he then settled on the pitch, and despite the fact that in the Italian team's goal the ball hits him in the head and modifies the trajectory with a fatal result, it can be said that the French presented credentials to be a good alternative from now on. In the call for Vigo will also have to enter the defenders of the subsidiary Aritz Arambarri and Jon Pacheco, to cover any contingency. The problem is that Pacheco He will not be able to play in Vigo because he is also injured, suffers a “stress fracture at the base of the 5th metatarsal” and will have a conservative treatment of a certain duration.
