The dismissal of Vicente Moreno and the subsequent departure of Rufete as coach and sports director, respectively, have monopolized all the spotlights in the Blue and White fiefdom throughout these days. Like their rival today, and hence this is the only duel that is not played on a unified schedule, the parrots have nothing at stake in what will be their last home duel of the season. Precisely there is where they have underpinned their permanence (32 points out of 40 at home). Luis Blanco, interim coach, will not be able to count on Aleix Vidal or Yangel Herrera due to suspension. Also without the injured Óscar Gil, Morlanes and Keidi Bare.
Ace to follow: Raúl de Tomás. Totally involved in the race for Zarra with his 16 goals. He adds one less than Aspas at this point and he will want to exceed that quota. Capacity and talent he has to spare.
