Mirandés and Las Palmas want to look up in the table

The yellows set themselves the challenge of chaining their fourth victory in a row in a cursed field. For its part, the rojillo team seeks to win at home again.

The Mirandés hope to maintain the good feelings offered in their last match, defeating a UD Las Palmas in Anduva that arrives at Miranda on the rise after three consecutive wins, and against the three clubs relegated last season from the top category. The victory in Cartagena has raised the spirits of José Alberto's troop, who wants his pupils to maintain the level of commitment and solidarity they showed in the Albinegro fiefdom (follow the game live on AS.com) .

The Asturian coach will have to rebuild the team due to Meseguer's absence due to suspension, one of his key pieces. Although he has several alternatives such as entering Caballero or delaying the position of Pablo Martínez, the recent signing Álex López has all the ballots to accompany Javi Muñoz in the center of the field. The rest could be the same ones that achieved the three points last Monday with Cristo González, in stellar mode, by scoring a double. Carlos Julio, Jackson and Schutte will also not be on the pitch due to injury.

For their part, Pepe Mel's pupils come to this event full of enthusiasm after a brilliant start to the year, with three consecutive victories against Espanyol, Mallorca and Leganés. Of course, they are aware of the difficulty of the contest against Mirandés since Anduva is a real nightmare. Four encounters and four defeats are the islanders' precedents in Mirandesas lands. In this way, the yellow players must follow that marked line of defensive seriousness that has been sustained by the continuity of seven players, such as goalkeeper Álex Dominguez, defenders Lemos, Álex Suárez, Curbelo and Dani Castellano; and the midfield couple formed by Javi Castellano and Sergio Ruiz.

From there, with the known loss of Kirian, the Madrid coach will have to vary the eleven that faced Leganés to give way, in theory, to footballers such as Aridai, who scored the winning goal, or Enzo Loiodice, already recovered. of his ailments in the pubis. Despite the fact that the yellow house does not want to hear or talk about the playoffs, winning for the first time in Anduva would be a brutal emotional blow to think that the squad is really capable of greater heights.
