That said, it is clear that only three points of interest are in the home, especially when facing an opponent who is in the downhill area, so he will try to dominate the game from start to finish so that he does not take the risk of conceding goals. For this game the coach Ruben Baraja will not have Sergio Alvarez, Alberto Lora and Álex López who are in the medical department.

For this game, the coach of the team must take to the field what is best at disposal.
