Míchel's Girona calibrates the historic Amorebieta

The rojiblanco coach lives his first meeting in Montilivi and receives a newly promoted team that will play for the first time in its history in the Second Division.


Triple premiere in Montilivi. A new season begins in the rojiblanco fiefdom and he will do so by watching Míchel make his debut on the Girona bench against a historic Amorebieta. The Biscayan team, which arrives with the newly promoted poster, will play its first game in history in the Second Division and will try to show that it is not here to be a comparsa. And all this, before 3,360 rojiblancos spectators who dream of forgetting as soon as possible the two playoff finals to First lost in a row (follow the game live on AS.com).With the new season, hopes are renewed and this is what Míchel has tried to instill in his Girona. The coach is looking for the third promotion of his career to First, after those achieved with Rayo and Huesca, and this was one of the reasons why he trusted him. They want to end the jinx and return as soon as possible to the gold category of Spanish football. But step by step. It is time to face the first of the 42 days offered by this Second Division and, in addition, this Girona is still to be done. It is true that four signings have arrived (Aleix García, Juncà, Nahuel Bustos and Darío Sarmiento), but the coach is waiting for a right-back, an experienced midfielder and an unbalancing forward. Starting the League with the open market is what he has, although Girona does not want excuses. He seeks to become strong from the beginning in his stadium and, in addition, he has a choice. Míchel will not be able to count on the injured Santi Bueno and Valery, but he will be able to count on proven footballers such as Gumbau, Aleix García, Samu Sáiz, Sylla and Stuani. The latter is once again the flagship of Girona and is eager to remove the thorn from last season. Injuries plagued him, although this preseason he has shown his voracity: four goals (top scorer) in 270 minutes.

The Uruguayan striker is the main threat and concern of an Amorebieta who does not want to get off the cloud. The historic promotion to Second is still in the balance, but it is time to lower the ball back onto the pitch. Vélez de Mendizabal also opens in the category and will not be able to count on Aldalur, Zarrabeitia, Iker Bilbao and Garro, due to injury, or the sanctioned Markel Lozano. Last Friday at 11:00 am, the Zornotzarra expedition set out on the road to Girona from Urritxe and did so with the desire to score the first points in its history in the Second Division. Vélez de Mendizabal traveled with 20 players and has doubts in his team, although signings like Ozkoidi and Guruzeta will have a guaranteed place in the starting block. Effort, sacrifice and desire will not be lacking.
