The couple formed by Yeray Álvarez, vintage of ’95, and Unai Núñez, of ’97, who know each other by heart from the lower ranks of Lezama, will again perform in parallel at the Bernabéu against Real Madrid this Wednesday at 9:00 p.m. A tandem that He already acted against Cádiz because of Vivian’s injury and Iñigo Martínez’s sanction. A life insurance since they are two proven centrals, but not those chosen by Marcelino García Toral at the start of the League (Vivian-Iñigo Martínez), although the Barakaldo center-back was injured since the preseason.
On that occasion, just a month ago in San Mamés, Dani Vivian, who started with Marcelino to date, could no longer play in the Anoeta derby against Real for a injury to the rectus femoris that is tedious, and Iñigo Martínez, his usual tandem, was sent off in the final stretch of the derby in a struggle with Isak in which Martínez Munuera showed him the second yellow and therefore could not line up against Cádiz. A match that both did not play in the worst choral match of this Athletic.
Now, tonight, history repeats itself in this postponed match against Real Madrid because Vivian is still in workshops and Iñigo Martínez was expelled again against Granada for an ugly entrance to Luis Suárez in the front of the area to abort the possible goal of the forward that would have broken the final 2-2 in stoppage time. For the rest, Marcelino does not plan to introduce many changes in his starting eleven. Two doubts: at the extreme right Nico Williams or Berenguer and at the tip Raúl García or Sancet. Therefore, the probable alignment, in a 4-4-2 with which the Asturian coach agrees, is going to be served: Unai Simon; Lekue, Núñez, Yeray, Balenziaga; Nico Williams or Berenguer, Dani García, Muniain; Sancet or Raúl García and Williams.
