The 'rojiblancos' want to do strong home and, in fact, the past campaign already avoided the victory of the FC Barcelona on his lawn, something that will try to repeat in the duel of this week. However, they could lose to three important players by injury.
The first of them would be Íñigo Martínez, central left-handed of the group bilbaíno, that this Tuesday trained to the margin of the group and that it will be doubt to the end. It treats of a very sensitive drop, since it is the attendant to give stability to the defence of the Athletic and is the big leader of the saga. In fact, it is necessary to remember that the Barça wanted to him does a pair of summers.
The others two drops correspond to the offensive plot and also have trained to the margin of the group. The first of them is Íñigo Córdoba, left-handed extreme, that exercised with an aparatoso vendaje. His place in the band could occupy it Óscar Of Marcos, polyvalent player that can occupy any side, already was in defence or in attack.
Ibai Gómez is the last possible drop of the Basque group and, in fact, no longer could play the last party of preparation of the Athletic as it happened him to Íñigo Martínez. His drop in attack also would be quite sensitive, since it contributes big quality to the team since it returned pertinent of the Sportive Alavés.
