Eder Sarabia’s men need to win in A Malata to get closer to the play-off zone
Cristóbal Parralo’s men have not lost in their stadium since December 2022
FC Andorra wants to attack Malata, a fiefdom in which Racing de Ferrol has not lost since December 2022, to get closer to the noble zone of the table.
The naval team reaches matchday 14 of the league championship in the Second Division with 20 points and occupying tenth position in the standings. It remains pending the evolution of Jon García, the only specific center back in its squad, who did not travel to play the duel. cupbearer in Marbella.
The Basque player, who suffered a small strain in his left femoral biceps, was excluded from Cristóbal Parralo’s squad as a precaution after being withdrawn due to physical discomfort during the Sardinero match last Monday.
Both Fran Manzanara, who had minutes against Marbella FC; how David Castro and Enrique Clemente could face a hypothetical absence of the footballer against FC Andorra.
Parralo has been able to confirm in Santander and Marbella the good performance of his first line and the usual substitutes and will once again appeal to defensive order and danger on his wings, with Heber Pena and Carlos Vicente as undisputed references, to get three points in his fortín, which repeats during Sunday lunch hours.
Eder Sarabia’s men, sore after surprisingly falling out of the First Round of the Copa del Rey against Atlético Astorga, faces a Racing de Ferrol that has not lost a game on its field since December 17, 2022 and this season they have accumulated three draws and three wins at home.
Those of the Principality will not be able to count on the injured Christos Almpanis, Martí Vilà and Jandro Orellana and they have the doubt of Pablo Moreno who had to retire with muscle discomfort in the first half of the Copa del Rey match against Atlético Astorga.
FC Andorra, which is six points away from relegation, has lost in five of its last trips and in the last one lost 2-0 against Real Valladolid. In addition, the Copa del Rey match played against Atlético Astorga could also be added.
Sarabia has not yet found the key and on Sunday he faces an opponent who feels comfortable in A Malata. Furthermore, the Galicians ended their cup curse and seven seasons later managed to overcome a knockout competition eliminator with their victory against Marbella.
The two teams are betting on very different ideas of the game and in A Malata Cristóbal Parralo’s team needs to get back to winning ways as they have accumulated two consecutive draws.
The Bilbao coach already made rotations in the Copa del Rey match and will once again bet on players who rested in the Copa del Rey match in Astorga. Diego Pampín and Diego Alende will once again play a match in their homeland: Galicia.
