The good game of the Camp Nou costs the Real dearly

The txuri-urdin team returns with two new injuries: Llorente touched and, above all, Zubeldia, ruled out for the two matches in Anoeta this week.


La Real Sociedad played like never before in the Camp Nou, but lost as always. At least during the last two decades. This phrase should be applied as a summary of what happened in the game against Barcelona. Because those of Imanol Alguacil, surely, completed one of the most serious performances of a Real in the Coliseum azulgrana in recent years. The problem is that this good image can cost you dearly. So much that for the two consecutive games that have this week in Anoeta the coach oriotarra has been left without any of their pivots specific to play '4' ahead of the defense.

Txuri-urdin set returned from Barcelona with other two casualties that add to the many important absences that have accumulated in recent weeks, a problem with the injuries that are dragging their European aspirations and that can no longer be the result of chance or bad luck. From the Camp Nou they returned injured Diego Llorente and Igor Zubeldia. It seems that the central Madrid is not something of relevance, although the closeness of the game against Villarreal leaves much doubt in its competition on the weekdays. More problematic seems the injury of the azkoitiarra midfield, completely ruled out to play the two games in Anoeta that the Realistas have this week, against Villarreal and Getafe.

The medical part issued by the Real at the end of the match in Barcelona does not cast any doubt. Diego Llorente had to retire early as a precaution, feeling "a muscle puncture in his left calf ", so it is understood that it is not something serious. More problematic seems to Zubeldia, who suffered a "muscle puncture in the right adductor" when trying to cut a ball in the azulgrana field. stretched too much to slip, and could not continue. It is waiting to know the results of complementary medical tests to know the definitive dignostic, but is feared by a breakage of fibers of a certain degree that prevents him from playing and in the games that remain this season.

Eso is a serious problem for Imanol Alguacil, that is left without a specific pivot to play in front of the defense. Illarramendi has just returned with the group, and his return seems premature; the pivot of the subsidiary Ander Guevara is also injured; the same as David Zurutuza, who could be a resource for that position. And will also be for Thursday Zubeldia. That leaves him with the difficult situation of having only three specific midfielders of the first team: Sangalli, Merino and Pardo. The three point to starters, with the Navarre playing in front of the defense and not between lines, something he already did with good performances at the Camp Nou when he injured Zubeldia. Another option is to make debut to another 'foal', to the young pivot of the subsidiary, martín Zubimendi, that already was summoned the previous time with so many problems in the medulla in the form of injuries.
