He followed Denis Suarez (Celta Vigo, loan) and Fernando Pacheco (Almeria, transfer). Pol Lozano was landed in Granada (D2) in the form of a loan, the same for Miguelon (Cartagena). As for the Basque team, the infirmary is full to bursting... No less than ten players were absent for the reception of Real Valladolid. Starting with the former Angevin, Mohamed-Ali Cho (2 assists in 8 appearances in La Liga), the important defender Elustondo (ankle), Andoni Gorosabel (13 appearances this season), the talented Ander Guevara, the precious Mikel Merino (7 assists in La Liga), the too often injured Martin Marquelanz, defender Jon Pacheco (rotation), summer rookie Umar Sadiq (rupture of a cruciate ligament), without forgetting the legend David Silva (16 apps this season) and Alex Sola. On the other hand, the player on loan from RB Leipzig Alexander Sorloth (8 league goals) should be aligned in the eleven as well as summer rookie Brais Mendez (7 goals, 3 assists).
