Narváez-Rubén Castro, gunners duel for permanence

Real Zaragoza receives Cartagena in another 'final' for salvation. JIM maintains its commitment to Peybernes and Álex Alegría. Carrión recovers Gallar and Carrasquilla.


New 'ending' for the stay at La Romareda. Real Zaragoza faces another duel tonight on Holy Thursday against a very direct rival like FC Cartagena, before facing a section of the calendar full of applicants for the 'playoff' (follow the game live on So everything that is not a victory would put the Aragonese team in serious problems, which before starting this 32nd day had three points with the border of relegation.

Juan Ignacio Martínez will be able to count on Nieto, already recovered from his discomfort in an adductor, but everything indicates that he will repeat the same eleven that he tied at Nuevo Las Gaunas, with Peybernes as Jair's partner in the center of defense, with Francho forming the middle line with Eguaras, Zapater and Bermejo, and with Narváez and Álex Alegría at the top of the attack, despite the fact that the latter has only scored one goal in ten games.

JIM has injured and with COVID-19 Javi Ros and Atienza, James recovering from his sprained knee and Vuckic returning from his last engagement with Slovakia in Cyprus.

For its part, FC Cartagena arrives relieved by the results of Alcorcón and Logroñés, but with the urgency of achieving a victory at La Romareda. Or at least to score. And it is the one that the Luis Carrión team does not finish starting, despite the restructuring of its winter market staff. What's more, the Catalan coach may be risking his future in the next two games (Real Zaragoza and Alcorcón) .

For the visit to the Aragonese team, Carrión has, with respect to the clash against Ponferradina, the casualties of Navas and Clavería. In addition, David Simón is not one hundred percent and Nacho Gil continues with his recovery process. To these must be added the absence of Aburjania, with the selection of Georgia. The good news is the returns of Gallar and Carrasquilla, the latter could even be a starter. It remains to be seen if in a 'final' like La Romareda's, Carrión once again allows himself the luxury of leaving Rubén Castro, the team's top scorer with 13 goals, on the bench. Everything indicates that no, so the canary will be at the tip of the attack with Elady. Another novelty in the eleven will be Andújar, by the sanctioned Navas.

To obtain a positive result, FC Cartagena will have to change the image it gave in two of its last outings: Las Palmas and Albacete. In both he was outmatched from start to finish by the opponents and it is these encounters that gave rise to criticism from a hobby that until recently was once again at the side of the players and the coach.
