Molo’s team has added ten points out of a possible twelve while his rival only accumulates two despite his great economic potential
Interesting confrontation on Sunday afternoon between two teams that have had a totally different start to the season; while Águilas is perched at the top of the group V table after the initial four days of the championship, Intercity has only added two points out of sixteen, despite being a team that started as a clear candidate to be in the high zone of the classification and have a millionaire budget. The results have not accompanied them so far, the nerves are on the surface in the Alicante table since they have only added two points and occupies a place at the bottom of the classification.
Despite this situation and the theoretical superiority of the coastal team, in Águilas their coach Molo does not want confidence or euphoria about his team’s qualifying situation. Nor, of course, does he trust the rival they will have in front of them since the Almeria coach understands that those of Intercity are players who in a good number come from playing in a higher category and that sooner or later should be reflected in their results, for what he hopes his reaction will not take place in El Rubial.
Molo will not be able to count on Gaffoor and Chumbi this afternoon, two important pieces in his team and two of the footballers with pedigree on whom Alfonso García’s ambitious project is based. Both were injured in the match the previous day played in Granada. The former has calf discomfort and the forward has a problem with his hamstrings.

Gustavo Siviero, Intercity coach, is on the tightrope due to the poor results and acknowledges that his team needs to achieve a good result at El Rubial to start leaving the zone in the qualifying zone where they are, although he admits that the Águilas “is a difficult opponent”, but “we have a team that is capable of winning in any field,” says the Argentine.
The former Murcia technician does not finish making Intercity carbure despite the fact that he has footballers such as Manu Herrera, Carmona, Juanma Ortiz, Borja Viguera and Benja, among others, on the payroll.
