Very different objectives between Alcorcón and Mirandés

Alcorcón seeks to get out of the well and Mirandés fight for the playoff zone. Anquela's team wants to become strong in Santo Domingo.


After the blow of Tenerife, the Alcorcón has influenced that "that's the way" to get out of the area below. The potters have been superior to their rivals for three weeks, but in the Heliodoro it was not enough. The Anquela players started the day just one point from salvation and are aware that the victories in Santo Domingo are essential to stay alive (follow the game live on .

Lack of aim is still the handicap facing Alcorcón. The Madrilenians generate chances and dominate many sections of the matches with intensity and possession, but they lack a goal and without a goal the triumphs do not come. The yellows are a solid, compact, coral and competitive team and they will need all those qualities to try to defeat Mirandés.

In the words of Anquela, "we got to the game very well. We cannot lose the entity and the personality. The only philosophy is to go to a bloody sprint". We will see if the Jaén coach returns to his classic scheme with a 4-2-3-1 or plays again with three centrals as he has done in recent weeks. The potters recover Carlos Embaló.

For its part, Mirandés will try to take advantage of local emergencies to continue looking up in the classification. José Alberto's disciples are very clear about the objective of the season, which is none other than staying in the category; although a victory in Santo Domingo would bring them much closer to the playoff spots. The rojillos have only lost one game in the second round, specifically in the previous trip to Ponferrada in which they did not leave good feelings.

The appointment in the yellow field will put the 'jabato' team to the test, which is committed to effectiveness in attack in order to get a positive result. Also for the defensive solidarity since a meeting with many lateral centers is foreseen to which special attention should be paid.

The Asturian coach has summoned 24 players to face Alcorcón. You will have to discard one before the start of the duel. The main doubt lies in the left side. Javi Jiménez, absent due to injury in the last appointment, is in the call although his presence may be somewhat hasty. Initially, Carlos Julio will be located again in that position. In the midfield, Álex López could replace Meseguer.

Keys to the match

- Intensity: Potters need to maintain defensive intensity to lay the foundation for future victories.

- Lateral centers: The red team will try to be forceful in this type of action, which the Alcorcón dominates so well.

- Goal: Alcorcón generates chances, but lacks aim. The yellows are the team that scores the fewest goals in the League with 16.

- Effectiveness: Making the most of opportunities is the premise that José Alberto's men set for the appointment in Santo Domingo.

Aces to follow

- Dani Ojeda: Little by little he begins to have more prominence. His experience, versatility and offensive ability should give Alcorcón a plus.

- Cristo: The Canarian striker wants to score again. In the previous game, he barely appeared in the rojillo attack game.
