Eibar arrives at Navalcarnero (4:00 PM, DAZN) with the scare still in the body because of what happened on the 7th, after Reyes, north of Madrid, in Las Rozas, in the previous round of the Cup. He is looking for a place in the round of 16 with the idea of not repeating the mistakes that almost cost him his elimination. He delayed a 0-3, and Bryan Gil had to leave to solve the mess in extra time (follow the game live on As.com). This dramatic attempt is a warning for the gunsmiths and at the same time a reason for hope for his rival this afternoon, who has just beaten Badajoz and Las Palmas. Precisely the Badajoz team struck down the Guipuzcoans last year and Mendilibar has already warned that “it can be repeated.”
The Naval covers its sixth season in Second B after ascending last year and is third in its group, with only one defeat. For the first time they face an elite team in an official match. These days have been an example in the Community of Madrid for their spectacular work to remove the blanket of snow that covered their field. A total of 40 volunteers, including neighbors, managers, coaches, players and homegrown players of the club, have left the Municipal Mariano González impeccable, and, as happened in Las Rozas, there will be 420 spectators at today’s meeting. It is the humblest of the Madrid teams and a great effort has been coordinated. Leganés have had to go to Wanda; Fuenlabrada and Rayo, to Las Rozas; and the Alcorcón tried until the last moment to get Santo Domingo ready. These types of humble clubs have many endearing stories. Like that of Fran Pérez, winger and forward brother of matador and bullfighter, son of bullfighting businessmen, and grandson of a cycling team manager. He admits that he idolizes Inui, Pedro León and Bryan Gil and today he can be with the first two.
Luis Ayllón will not vary much the eleven that got off the tournament to Las Palmas. Jesus de Miguel, who is low, will not be in it. However, it seems that David Gómez will arrive. For his part, Mendilibar continues without Cote and Correa, and has given Bryan Gil a break, who left Las Rozas touched. Diop and Oliveira did not travel either, but the newly renovated Kike García did, of whom his coach maintains: “He has been with us for five and a half years, he gives you everything he has and if on top of that he is right as he is now facing the goal, his illusion is bigger. He is a player who rarely breaks the rules of what the coach sends him. He is an important player to have with us and I am happy with his renewal ”. In addition, the Polish Kadzior, who signed at the end of August for three seasons, and Olabe are left. The two are on the exit ramp to go on loan. He traveled to Portugal yesterday to sign for the Tondela de la Primera in that country.
There will be opportunities again with those who play the least. Yoel will return to occupy the goal with enough probability as usual in the cup competition. Up front there would be another gap for Valladolid Quique González, who finally scored his first goal as a Barça player, against Las Rozas. “We cannot fail in not having concentration or intensity. Then I can fail in a certain play, but it cannot be that we lose a tie because we have gone out on the field thinking that we are better. We cannot allow that and I do not think it will happen.” , has warned Mendilibar, who has joined the stream of praise for the Navy with its work against the snow: “It seems to me something commendable because in the end you are excited to play that game and you do not want to be taken to another field. There have been times when we have all done something on the field at some time and we have removed snow or other things to be able to train or play. Having that strength to attract many people from the town, even without being members or anything of the club, seems good to me on the part of Navalcarnero “.
