Marcelino regulates the line-ups to the millimeter for the Cup final

The Asturian coach has given Muniain and Williams a break, rotating his three center-backs, Berchiche, right-backs and his four leading midfielders.

Although he insists that the League is still hot, the truth is that Marcelino García Toral has clearly dosed his ships in the last games against Villarreal, Atlético and Celta, and the same maneuver is expected against Eibar this Saturday in San Mamés. His eleven type has been reformulated. The reason is none other than, given the difficulty of sneaking into Europe via the League with that seventh place quite far away, to schedule the minutes almost in a millimeter way among a large part of its squad, with changes regulated and previously studied, with the first Cup final on April 3 at La Cartuja in Seville against Real just around the corner. One or two more titles require some sacrifice. Avoiding injuries, rolling your men with measure and active rest obeys the keys of your strategy.

The examples are clear in the last days of the calendar. The Asturian coach has granted rest in their alignments to two of his fixed, Williams and Muniain, Raúl García changed him in the intermission of Balaídos, Iñigo Martínez, before his sanction, has been dosing him with Yeray and Núñez in the axis Central, having all three plugged in, Yuri Berchiche has gone through the bench to, in addition, cushion his physical discomfort due to a blow, that he does not go deep and incidentally so that Balenziaga takes flight.A separate chapter responds to the permutation of his four leading midfielders (Dani García, Unai López, Vencedor and Vesga) whom he has seen in action forming different pairs, ruling out that Vencedor and Unai López coincide simultaneously because he considers them less consistent and with less tour in defensive tasks in the middle block. In the right-back demarcation, he has also been alternating Capa and De Marcos, mainly, and somewhat less Lekue, escorting a Berenguer in a state of grace that the right-handed winger has acquired.
