Zaragoza wants to take off at the expense of Alcorcón

Direct duel for the permanence. Cristian Álvarez, the only novelty in the JIM eleven. The potters have won on their last three visits to La Romareda.


New ending for permanence. Real Zaragoza intends to extend its successful streak at home and take off definitively at the expense of an Alcorcón that has won in its last three visits to La Romareda and that wants to make its triumph even better last day against Logroñés. And it is that a new victory for the Aragonese team, the fifth in a row, with the Argentine Cristian Álvarez again in his goal, would already place him with five points of advantage over the border of the descent, when two months ago, before the arrival of Juan Ignacio Martínez, was penultimate four points from salvation (follow the game live on .

Zaragoza has had up to nine days to prepare for another fundamental appointment and that has allowed the full recovery of its starting goalkeeper, absent in the last two games due to a contracture in the soleus of his right leg. The presence of Cristian Álvarez will be the only novelty in JIM's eleven, a technician little given to changes when things work out. And his team has added 14 of the last 21 points at stake, one more than all those that Baraja and Iván Martínez added in 18 days. So Francho, Eguaras and James will form the center of the field and Bermejo and Narváez, the only attacker with real numbers, will flank striker Álex Alegría, who has not seen the door for four dates, while the youthful Iván Azón is still waiting minutes on the bench.

JIM maintains Javi Ros's absence, without a reappearance date due to his serious knee injury, and he will not be able to count on the Uruguayan Sanabria, who, with discomfort in a calf, did not train yesterday either and was left out of the call.

The match is just as relevant for Alcorcón, penultimate after leaving the bottom position for their victory against Logroñés, the first in 2021. Of course, to win you have to score, and it costs the Anquela team a world. It seems that the Jaen coach will maintain the formula of the two forwards, former Zaragoza player Marc Gual and Xisco Jiménez, while recovering Boateng and losing Carlos Embaló through injury.

The yellows have regained defensive intensity which is the basis from which victory must come and not allow grotesque individual errors that have paid dearly throughout the season.

It is essential to remember that Zaragoza added three points in the first round in Santo Domingo due to an improper alignment of Alcorcón, when the match had concluded without goals.

And a final detail: the Galician referee Iglesias Villanueva will referee, with whom Zaragoza have never won: five draws and one defeat.
