Shortly after, in the first game of the year against Cartagena, on January 2, he also made his league debut. In total, Iván Azón has already played 571 minutes this season in thirteen games between the League and the Cup, six of them as a starter.

"Everything has happened very quickly. I came from the youth team, they decided to start with me in the subsidiary and I was lucky enough to be able to jump to the first team. I thank all the coaches, from Baraja, who made my debut, to Iván Martínez and JIM. I am very happy and my goals are to continue training hard, to continue adding minutes and to continue giving the best of myself to help the team out of this situation ", said Iván Azón through the communication channels of the Real Zaragoza.
