The Amorebieta continues to conform to the category, but still without any award. The blues, in this case wearing their green kit, have not managed to add in their visit to Anduva either. “The effectiveness has been better for them. It is true that they have opportunities to extend their advantage, but we also have them to draw and we do not score,” said Iñigo Vélez de Mendizabal at the post-match press conference after losing 2-0 to Mirandés.
The coach of the zornotzarra team highlighted the team’s reaction: “In the second half, already with 1-0, we responded better, but we have to be aware that we don’t have to wait for something to happen to react better”. Vélez de Mendizabal indicated that the team “is under construction and is adapting to the category.” He also recalled: “The same thing happened to us as in Girona, they put us in the first one that they have in the second half, then we have to score, we don’t put in, and at the end comes the second.”

Regarding the high pressure of the team: “We press high and try to have a rhythm, but what I am not going to ask the players is that they do something that we are not working on. I am happy because the team believes in their idea, which is what we’ve been doing all preseason. I prefer the team to be brave in that aspect than to be away from the ball or locked in our field and not be able to create chances. “
On Mirandés: “I saw him against Malaga and I know the type of game that they propose with the players who sign to try to keep the ball. What we try is that they don’t get to play their game and we try to do our best. I knew that there was a lot of movement in the midfield, upstairs without fixed players, who can move. What we thought they were going to do they did and very well. “
For his part, Gorka Larrucea stressed after the defeat in Anduva that no game is easy. “We have pushed up, they have sometimes gone to our back, but we have not had any misalignment and the goal has come in an individual play” said the Amorebieta midfielder. Larru insisted that the team tried again to do their job and they stayed alive until the end having their chances. “Now it’s time to continue, think about the Almería game for the first points,” said the 8th, already thinking about the home debut of the zornotzarra team on the next day.
