Something that with Ernesto Valverde in the charge had not been any problem, since the extremeño always showed predilection by the ex of the Seville, with the Cantabrian is being one of the big debates that is having in the referred to the eleven initial.

The ex of the Betis is delivering split between both and so much one like the another have been headlines in six occasions since it arrived the santanderino. But it is not the same to play against the Raise or against the Leganés, with all the respects of the world to both clubs, that do it in Saint Paolo against the Naples or in a Classical in front of the Real Madrid. These big nights are those that are used to to mark the difference and has been then when it has seen to what central prefers for real Setién.

The one of Cantabria has bet by Umtiti whenever there has been an important meeting in front of a rival of entity. The ex of the Olympique of Lyon went out of initiated in Mestalla against Valencia, in addition to in the gone of eighth of Champions League in front of the Naples and against the Madrid this past Sunday in Santiago Bernabéu. That in the three crashes have played always 'Big Sam' hints that the trainer culé trusts more in him that in the ex of the Seville.

In the last minutes had to see the faces with Mariano that it had jumped to the terrain of game in the discount and finish portrayed by the dominican. The tip went of him as if at all, left him backwards in career and finish sentencing the Classical with the 2-0.

Umtiti Has better exit of balloon that Lenglet

If Setién Is deciding by the ex of the Lyon is probably by his exit of balloon. Lenglet Has very good touch and also stands out in this section, but for the Cantabrian Umtiti is a go past. The one of Yaoundé never puts nervous, always is used to to go out by where has to and is used to to be a big help not to resort to the balonazo, something that to the technician does not like him at all. The Madrid, nevertheless, took him out the colours to the Barça presionando up and not to leaving them go out playing, by what it will be necessary to see if for the next commitments the elected keeps on being the '23'.
