With the passing of the season, already in the middle of November, Pepe Mel seems to have found his base team. So by third consecutive day, the starting team that plays Las Palmas in Sabadella will hardly suffer variations.
It is true that this routine has come with a looser schedule, nothing to do with the one that follows. In any case, the Las Palmas coach will repeat the line-up with him. trio of midfielders formed by Fabio, Sergio Ruiz and Loiodice.
The starting team, from Girona, is practically traced. At least until training this morning, prior to the trip to Sabadell and the last one before the game, Mel has tested with a group formed by Valles; Curbelo, Álex Suárez, Aythami Artiles, Jonathan Silva; Fabio, Ruiz, Loiodice; Rober, Edu Espiau and Benito. Except for last minute change, the only novelty regarding the team that started the match against Tenerife is the inclusion of Curbelo by Álvaro Lemos, who is preferred to protect for Wednesday (Mirandés) due to the muscular discomfort he suffers.
Edu Espiau continues to grow stronger with the permission of Mel. “He does everything I ask of him,” his coach said today. The position of titular forward, in theory destined to Araujo, is sold expensive. The Argentine, after his last injury, will have his playing minutes in Sabadell to pick up his rhythm.
They will travel to peninsular territory 22 footballers instead of the 23 allowed. Several of them have physical problems of various considerations (Rivera, Lemos, Clau, Pejiño, Ale Díez) and neither do they want to “remove any player from the subsidiary because of the important game they have,” confessed Pepe Mel this afternoon.
