Oviedo and Zaragoza, historical in trouble in the Tartiere

Blues and maños clash in the Tartiere with the need to add to get out of the most dangerous positions. Tejera and Mossa, casualties in the premises; Francho, in the hands


Oviedo and Zaragoza travel through a very different place than they expected at the start of the championship. They are two squads built to fight for the positions of honor and that nevertheless struggle to get out of the dangerous positions of the table. For this reason, the Carlos Tartiere duel has an air of urgency for both of them (follow the game live on AS.com) .

Oviedo comes to the meeting after a disappointing draw in Fuenlabrada, in a clash in which they failed to manage their advantage on the scoreboard or their numerical superiority on the field. The point knew little to try that the objective of this season is not only permanence.

For today's appointment, Ziganda considers changes in her offensive focus, the one that has been most subjected to criticism in recent times. Blanco Leschuk has not scored since the beginning of December and in this context the scoring ability of the midfielders is essential. El Cuco has two important losses due to sanction, those of the incumbents Mossa and Tejera. Lucas and Javi Mier seem like natural substitutes.

After their sudden stop in front of Alcorcón, Real Zaragoza go to the Nuevo Tartiere with a firm intention of amendment and willing, incidentally, to return the coin to Oviedo for the first round match, where Ziganda's team took Romareda's three points in the debut of Iván Martínez, the coach who occupied the bench between Baraja and Juan Ignacio Martínez.

The week has been marked by self-criticism, an essential exercise to face the long road that the Aragonese team has left towards salvation. Zaragoza, again with the water around their neck, is not worth another result than the victory in Oviedo, although, as JIM emphasizes, "a change of attitude and mentality" will be essential, after presenting themselves relaxed to the match against Alcorcón and without any response capacity.

JIM loses an undisputed holder like Francho due to COVID-19 and cannot dispose of his natural replacement due to injury to the Uruguayan Sanabria, so the technician, who does not give a single clue, has been forced to find a second solution for the center from the field. Everything indicates that he will enter Nieto on the left side, advancing Chavarría's position and that he will modify the system, going from his usual 4-3-3 to 4-2-3-1, with Eguaras and James in the double pivot . But there is also the option of betting on Zapater or Adrián and not playing anything else. In any case, Zaragoza's main problem is its lack of punch, because Álex Alegría, the winter reinforcement that came to alleviate the failure of Toro Fernández and Vuckic, has not seen the door in five games.
