The fight for permanence takes place this Friday in the New High Cross. Sabadell and Real Zaragoza, currently, they look from the balcony at the precipice of the descent to Second B after managing to straighten their courses (follow the game live on GLM). Both sets are on a roll because while the harlequins come to win The palms and they already add eight days without falling, the Aragonese will seek their third win in a row. Of course, the lower zone is so tight that if one of the two loses today they will be at the mercy of what they do Cartagena and Albacete, which are their main pursuers and the first two teams to occupy relegation places. Sabadell glimpses them just one point away and Zaragoza, two.
The tension it is palpable in a Sabadell that it is clear that all the remaining matches in the League will be pure suffering. Antonio Hidalgo, who wore the Zaragoza jersey when he was a footballer, is aware of this and also has in his backpack the fact that his team hasn’t won at home for 82 days. Nova Creu Alta is resisting the Harlequin block this course and salvation is to improve the numbers a lot. The technician waits take advantage of the slipstream left by the victory in Las Palmas and that is why there are not too many changes in his starting team. The only doubt what has is if give entrance to Juan Hernández to the detriment of Guruzeta because the player on loan from Celta is sweet: he has signed the last two goals for Sabadell. Those who will not be missing will be Stoichkov and a Alvaro Vazquez who faces one of his exequipos. He wore the Zaragoza shirt in 33 games in the 2018-19 season and scored ten goals. Harlequinado has not yet been released (it arrived in the winter market).
As for Real Zaragoza, JIM has returned the smile, and football. Since their arrival, the Aragonese team has been wearing a streak of 13 points in six games. The coach seems to have found an eleven that responds to him and will keep him against Sabadell. As announced by AS last Sunday, the Argentine goalkeeper Cristian Álvarez will be out again due to a contracture in the calf and Ratón, who left an excellent performance at La Rosaleda, will continue one more day under the sticks, protected by a defensive line -Vigaray, Francés, Jair and Chavarría- that has only conceded three goals in the last six games. Francho, one of the great appearances of the season, together with the French center-back, Eguaras, in great form, and the Nigerian James Igbekeme will make up the midfield; while Bermejo, Álex Alegría, the only winter signing that is a starter, and the scorer Narváez (seven goals) will form the offensive hat trick. Where there is something new is in the squad list: the Slovenian Vukic enters, absent in the last two citations, for Larrazábal.
