Ponferradina and Girona, with their eyes on the playoff

Pablo Amo will enter the premises, Samu Saiz, in the visitors, and the question will be to see if Bolo can sit on the bench in Bercia, PCR through.


El Toralín opens in 2021 with the same ones from this time of year to counteract the effects of the frost and eager to see the first victory of his team in the new year (follow the game live on AS.com). The Ponferradina, which comes from a tough defeat in Almería, wants to retaliate against a Girona that drew last week against Sabadell and that arrives at Bierzo without Stuani, although its top scorer of this season, Sylla.

In the Berciano team, the presence of Bolo on the bench is doubtful, since this Monday, a negative PCR through, would end his quarantine period after testing positive for COVID-19 last day 1. In any case, the technician has been these days in permanent contact with his second, Pablo Lago, to present the best possible team this afternoon. With the loss of Manu Hernando due to injury, Amo will return to the center of the defense alongside Pascanu, while Paris and Adri Castellano would form on the wings. In the center, Sielva and Larrea should be the creative couple, with Curro, Pablo Valcarce and Juergen or Doncel behind Yuri.

For its part, Girona travels to Ponferrada aware that it cannot continue to fail if it wants to get into the fight for the playoff. After three league games without winning (two draws and one defeat) and without scoring a single goal, the rojiblanco team needs to take advantage of the slipstream that the Copa del Rey triumph against Lugo left them (they won in extra time with two goals the last five minutes). Francisco recovers Samu Sáiz, sanctioned against Sabadell, and will grant him the title, with freedom of movement, in the midfielder to connect with Mamadou Sylla. The rojiblanco coach has asked his players to take a step forward with the aim of recovering the competitive gene because a terrifying calendar awaits them. After playing in Ponferrada they will face the first classified of Second: Espanyol and Mallorca. And reaching these two encounters with a victory is vital.
