The chosen one against the desired one

Coudet faces Marcelino, who refused to coach Celta. Rubén Blanco and Mallo are low in the premises. Yuri was a father at dawn and it is doubt.


On October 24, AS unveiled the name of the board's first option for the blue bench. Marcelino García Toral was Mouriño's favorite in the event of the dismissal of Óscar García, who was already in the spotlight. The Asturian coach acknowledged this approach yesterday: "Celta showed an interest in us. At that time the idea was to train abroad. The idea of coming to Bilbao came up, we had to give an immediate answer, and we are very satisfied with having made that decision. ". Marcelino's pumpkins allowed the arrival of Coudet. Now, chosen and desired, they will face off in Balaídos (follow the game live on

Not bad for either of them. Coudet is taking advantage of the December momentum to stay hooked on Europe, although his greatest feat has been to ward off the ghosts of relegation. Marcelino, for his part, is hooked on success. He won the Spanish Super Cup as soon as he arrived and put the people of Bilbao in another Cup final. The barge is ready to set sail in April, with those two historic finals in just fifteen days.

Celta wants to make Rubén Blanco's day with a victory. The goalkeeper was injured last weekend at El Alcoraz and will be out for two months. His place will be occupied by Iván Villar. Nor will captain Hugo Mallo play. His position in the right lane will be for Kevin, while the bracelet will be worn by Iago Aspas. The moañés, in case he has not already done enough merits, wants to show Luis Enrique that he is Selection meat. The return of Tapia will give balance to the celestial in the center of the field.

In Athletic there are puzzles in defense, with the losses already certain of Capa and Íñigo Martínez and the most likely of Yuri, who was a father at dawn. Balenziaga is ready to supply you. Marcelino can rest the incombustible Raúl García. His place as Williams' companion will be occupied by Villalibre. Berenger and Muniain will bring the talent from the wings.
