“We will try to win a third time in a row in San Mamés, although we have the absence of our public and we notice it,” he pointed out Gaizka Garitano, who will bet on his hard core, except for the unexpected swerve, in the most transcendental match of the campaign this Monday (9pm, San Mamés) against Real Betis, with the coach in the pillory and the team evaluating intentions.
Derio’s coach ruled out in the previous one that From Marcos is yet to return after overcoming ankle discomfort and COVID-19 confinement, as well as Ezkieta, who leaves confinement and will be relieved by Herrerín, Y Nolaskoain still recovering, while he discarded Ibai Gomez and Kodro despite being both already in conditions. It is not unreasonable, however, some change of parts or even the scheme. In some second part of the league so far he has used two points. Many players are participating, these drastic changes in the scheme are made when it does not have a good structure, but these problems are not occurring, “Garitano clarified.
Dani García, recovered in time, will accompany Unai López in the engine room, with some option for Vesga of 6, with the internationals Unai Simón and Iñigo Martínez at eleven. The doubt of Berenguer and Morcillo on the left wing is another open front, in addition to the fact that Raúl García does not start from the beginning and the two extremes share the rojiblancas bands on the mat of La Catedral.
In principle, Athletic will kick off against Betis with: Unai Simon; Capa, Yeray, Iñigo Martínez, Berchiche; Dani García or Vesga, Unai López; Berenguer, Muniain, Morcillo or Raúl García y Williams.
