Simon it is flagged again. The mistake that the rojiblanco goal made in the goal of Sandro He has once again sowed doubts about the work carried out by Murgia in a season in which he alternates great performances with important failures that have cost points. Like the team in the League, the goalkeeper is not standing out this season precisely because of his consistency.
Simon had a good first half on Wednesday at El Alcoraz, with merit interventions against Ferreiro, Seoane Y Rafa
Mir, but it all went to hell in the 60th minute, when Sandro he shot from the right wing and the visiting goalkeeper swallowed the ball under his body. Sometimes football is that unfair.

You have no idea how fast he is going ”, said the coach from Burgos, who feels a special predilection for Athletic.
The Alava has played almost everything this season. He has played all 36 league matches, two in the Super Cup, four in the Cup this season, including the final against Barça, and the KO title match last year against the Txuri Urdin. Only the first two games of this last competition were left without playing against Ibiza and Alcoyano, when Marcelino opted for Jokin
