MADRID, 11 One. (EUROPA PRESS) –
Defenders Yuri Berchiche and Ander Capa and striker Asier Villalibre have entered the Athletic Club squad list to play the Spanish Super Cup, which will begin this Thursday with the semifinals against Atlético de Madrid, the Basque club confirmed this Tuesday.
Yuri, after almost nine months of absence, first due to a pubalgia that forced him to undergo surgery and later due to a foot injury, enters his first call of the season and the first also since April.
Along with him will be Capa and Villalibre, who dragged annoyances and were not in the LaLiga Santander game against Deportivo Alavés. Instead, Unai Núñez, with a bruise to the fibula, and Unai Vencedor, with a hamstring injury, are left out.
The complete list includes Unai Simón, Jokin Ezkieta, Julen Agirrezabala, Petxarroman, Iñigo Martínez, Yeray, Vesga, Berenguer, Sancet, Iñaki Williams, Muniain, Vivian, Dani García, Lekue, Yuri Berchiche, De Marcos, Zarraga, Villalibre, Capa , Raúl García, Nolaskoain, Balenziaga, Nico Williams and Serrano.
Athletic, defending the title after beating FC Barcelona in last year’s final, will arrive at around 8:30 p.m. Spanish peninsular time at the hotel where it will rest to face the last day of preparation before the duel against Atlético de Madrid on Thursday (8:00 p.m. hours).
