Athletic-Osasuna: more than a catwalk in San Mamés
Casualties condition Marcelino’s plan. All eyes will be on the Osasunista Moncayola, with an offer to renew and a marked interest from Athletic
Athletic and Osasuna play for the future in San Mamés. What happens tonight will be focused on what the teams do next season. Athletic, which has a remote possibility of Europe, will play with a renewed team, in which Marcelino falls short of troops again because it has half a dozen injured players and two confined (Lekue by positive and Dani García by close contact with a positive), with the intention of get two wins in a row for the first time this season.
Osasuna, once the permanence is achieved, faces the appointment with the aim of winning again and leaving behind two consecutive defeats. The challenge comes to him in a stadium where he already won last season. Oier, author of the winning goal last year, will not be due to accumulation of cautions. Neither Manu Sánchez, injured on Tuesday, nor Calleri, with whom Arrasate does not want to force.
In the script of an Athletic in which the top scorer Berenguer could be missing with knee problems, the younger ones will count again. In Osasuna the newly renovated David García will appear … and also Moncayola, which has a renewal offer on the table and is sought by Athletic. “You have to leave the kid alone. Osasuna will offer to grow, the club will make a great effort. The rush is not good. Jon is intelligent and the decision he makes will be the best for him,” said Arrasate.
