Homegrown players to the rescue – AS.com

Canteranos al rescate

Karanka and Granada have a problem at the back. The Nasrids have to overcome the losses due to suspension of Domingos Duarte, Víctor Díaz and Quini, and the injuries to Torrente and Neva. Besides, Santiago Arias is a serious doubt and has not competed for more than four months. Like this the things, the new rojiblanco technician He only has Germán and Escudero available for the transcendental meeting next Sunday, May 1 against Celta (4:15 p.m.).

For this reason, he will be forced to pull the subsidiary to rebuild his rear. The youth squad Pepe, Barcia and Brau have their options to land directly in Karanka’s eleven. Pepe and Barcia usually play as central defenders in Recreativo Granada, while Brau occupies the left side in the Nasrid second team. A priori, Pepe, who has acted on numerous occasions as a right back, and Barcia, are the ones who have the most options to accompany Germán and Escudero behind the first team. However, it should not be ruled out that Escudero will act as a central defender and that Brau will occupy the left flank of the defense.

Shield/Flag Grenada

Proof of the importance that the three young Recreativo Granada players can acquire this week is that none of them was lined up this Sunday in the 1-0 triumph of the Granada second team against Atlético Levante.

Nor should other options be discarded, such as, for example, that Petrovic, Eteki or even Gonalons move back their position to occupy the center of the rear. The Frenchman’s case is the least likely, since he has also accumulated more than two months without participating and it does not seem very likely that he will return directly to eleven and in a position that is not his.

Karanka has almost a week ahead of him to find a solution. The match against Celta is essential. Granada currently occupies relegation position and he is one point behind Cádiz and two behind Mallorca, which he will face in two days, so he is obliged to add the three points against the Vigo side if he does not want to see his qualifying situation even more compromised.
