JIM will have to improvise a midfield against Tenerife

The midfielder of the Castillo subsidiary trained today with the first team and could enter the squad due to the absences of Eguaras, Francho and Sanabria.


The problems do not stop growing at Real Zaragoza. To his critical position in the table, in relegation score after two consecutive defeats, the losses of Eguaras, Francho and Sanabria are suddenly added, which literally leaves the center of the field in a square to face the game this Saturday in La Romareda against Tenerife, where the Aragonese team is forced to react so as not to make their situation even worse. So Juan Ignacio Martínez, in his most delicate moment since he took over Zaragoza, will have to rebuild his midline without moderately reliable solutions, hence today the midfielder of the subsidiary Iván Castillo has trained with the first team, who could have a gap in the next appointment of the Alicante technician.

Castillo, 21, belongs to Francho's generation, who was Spain's youth champion. It is a recuperative midfielder, with good physical display and tactically correct. It does not seem that he is going to start, but given the shortage of troops, he aims to be in his first call-up with Real Zaragoza.

JIM already had the casualties of Francho, due to COVID-19, and of the Uruguayan Sanabria, recovering from a fibrillar tear in the calf of his left leg, in addition to that of Javi Ros, who has already accumulated two months in the dry dock due to his a battered knee, but now Íñigo Eguaras's has joined due to the accumulation of cards. The Navarrese midfielder saw his fifth yellow card of the season after the match against Oviedo for "making observations on one of the referee's decisions as a sign of disagreement", as reflected in the referee's act, and will be punished with a match of suspension by the Competition Committee of the Spanish Football Federation.

Everything indicates that James Igbekeme and Chavarría will regain their place in the starting eleven, according to the failed experiment of Zapater and Larrazábal in the Carlos Tartiere, although it cannot be ruled out that JIM continues to bet on the captain or that in this general reconstruction of the center from the field give way to Adrián.

Real Zaragoza will rest on Tuesday and will return to training on Wednesday morning at the Ciudad Deportiva.
