Umar Sadiq returns to Fuenlabrada

Gomes reserved the Nigerian striker against Sevilla, who is on fire: he has scored in seven of the last eight league games. Maras is now ready.


Umar Sadiq will once again be the main rojiblanco argument next Saturday (8:30 pm) at Fernando Torres. José Gomes reserved it the day before yesterday against Sevilla in the quarterfinals of the Copa del Rey in order to give him rest, and avoid a possible injury that would deprive him of the duel against Fuenlabrada. Villar and Mendes (he left on Monday) and Escobar have not yet seen a rival goal in the domestic competition, so in the absence of Schettine acclimatization, the Nigerian is even more key to Almeria's aspirations.

The '9' from Almeria, who played the last 25 minutes against Sevilla is sweet: in the last eight league games he has scored in seven of them, remaining without getting wet only against Espanyol in December, getting in that space of time a dozen goals: against Mirandés, Tenerife (from a penalty), Alcorcón, Zaragoza and Málaga he scored a goal, for the triplet against Ponferradina, also once seeing a goal against Sabadell and another against Castellón. Curiously, all of them have been in the Stadium of the Mediterranean Games except against Madrid.

Almería does not know what it is to lose when Umar Sadiq scores. Of the previous duels in all of José Gomes they won except against Sabadell, drawing that day. In the other match that the Nigerian scored, before his streak, it was against Cartagena, also with a draw. Against Alavés, played in January, also during the '9' streak, Sadiq gave himself a double and Almería thrashed, so for now the African's goals are being a sure thing.

Maras is now available

Nikola Maras is once again available to José Gomes after recovering from his injury (the Almeria entity has not specified exactly what ailment it was). The Serbian central defender has already received medical discharge, so he will be able to enter the call for Fuenlabrada if the Portuguese coach deems it appropriate. Ivanildo replaced him against Sabadell and Castellón without the expected performance, so everything indicates that Maras will return to ownership if he is in physical condition. "I already feel well, one hundred percent. In the last five days I have worked with the team and I am now available," says the Balkan, who this morning trained with today's rookie, Guilherme Schettine, signed on Monday together to Brian Rodríguez, who will arrive in Almería next Sunday.
