Elche takes advantage of the break to empty the infirmary
Barragán and Nino overcome their physical problems and will be available against Betis
ANDl Elche has taken advantage of the national team break to empty its infirmary. His coach, Fran Escribá, celebrates that Antonio Barragán and Nino are available again. The right-handed winger and the forward have overcome the muscular problems that led to their absence in the last two games, against Sevilla (2-0) and Getafe (1-1) at home. The youth squad Jony Álamo is also OK, recovered from a muscle injury caused with the subsidiary.
Escribá has three more troops to receive Betis on Easter Sunday at 4:15 p.m. However, neither Barragán nor Nino aim to enter the eleven as novelties. The Colombian Helibelton Palacios has covered the absence of the side with a good note. It should be noted the special nature of the next match for Barragán, who played for Betis the last three seasons. For its part, the ‘legend’ has a very secondary role in Escribá’s schemes.
In addition, the FIFA window has also helped Pablo Piatti take a physical tone similar to that of his teammates. The Argentine winger, signed in early March, arrived after three and a half months without competing, from MLS’s Toronto FC. He entered as a revulsive in the final stretch of the last two games. And with the physical load acquired, he is already in a position to aspire to ownership.
It should be noted that Josan was absent from the first training session of the week due to slight discomfort, but in principle, nothing that would prevent him from being available on Sunday. He has several days ahead of him to get 100 percent.
Without his ‘top scorer’ against Betis
Elche, located two points above the descent, prepares its next duel with the very sensitive loss of Lucas Boyé. The franjiverde ‘top scorer’ with six goals will miss the appointment due to suspension. He saw in Getafe (1-1) the fifth yellow of his cycle, due to an argument with a rival.
Likewise, the team from Elche faces the duel against Betis with five warned: Fidel, Pere Milla, Josema, Diego González and Rigoni. If anyone sees a warning, they will be absent for the next visit to Huesca. A direct duel for salvation in the First Division, which Elche will try to achieve in the last ten days.
