Athletic Villalibre joins the injured list, as does Muniain
LThe injuries begin to hit the Athletic. El club bilbano has announced that Iker Muniain and Asier Villalibre suffer from muscular injuries, which makes it almost impossible for them to be present this Sunday against Valencia. The Navarrese has a slight semi-membranous muscle injury to his right leg, while the one from Gernika has a slight muscle injury to his right femoral biceps. Muniain was already out of yesterday’s game, despite the work of the physios to recover him in the face of that meeting.
Despite the fact that Muniain’s loss is very sensitive for all that he contributes to the team, it is Villalibre’s that penalizes Marcelino the most. With Ral sanctioned (accumulation of yellows) and the Buffalo injured, the Athletic coach only has one striker to receive Valencia. That is none other than Iaki Williams, that he has had to work with an individualized plan and a bandage due to the muscular fatigue suffered by the accumulation of matches.
It remains to be seen how the pieces fit together Marcelino in the crash this Sunday. Berenguer, Morcillo and Ibai are the candidates to occupy that position on the left side, although it will be necessary to see how De Marcos is after the cramps he suffered in the extension of Villamarn. In the attack, Williams is fixed and the question is who will be his companion. The Asturian already tried in the Cup with Sancet as second lead, although the result was not entirely good. In the surroundings of the rojiblanco team there is talk with enthusiasm of a possible couple formed by the Williams brothers, an unlikely option, since Nico Williams acts in the band and not in the center of the attack.
