The friendly against Elche will have two parts of one hour

Juan Ignacio Martínez and the French-green coach, Fran Escribá, have agreed on this new modality for Saturday's game to give their players more minutes.


Elche-Real Zaragoza this Saturday at the Pinatar Arena Football Center (9:00 p.m., Aragón Televisión) will have a singular formation, with two parts of one hour, by agreement between Juan Ignacio Martínez and the coach of the Franco-green team, Fran Write. So Zaragoza's second pre-season friendly will last 120 minutes instead of the regulation 90.

Both coaches agreed to this new modality in order to give their players more minutes. JIM's idea, as he already did in Calahorra, is to align two completely different eleven in each period.

This will be the first of the three friendlies that Real Zaragoza will play in the concentration that will start this afternoon in the Murcian town of San Pedro del Pinatar. The other two will be against Valencia (on Wednesday, July 28) and Atromitos de Atenas (on Friday, July 30), both with regulations.
