Athletic Club ladies’ team, in the last phase of its preseason, will face tomorrow Saturday a derby with a title at stake. The lionesses will play from 16.00 in the field of Garmendipe (Azpeitia) the final of the IX Euskal Herria Kopa against Real Sociedad. The objective of the red-and-white team is to achieve what would be the eighth title of the competition, as Athletic only lost against the Real in 2012. The txuriurdin team, champion of the Queen’s Cup last season, beat Alavés 1-0 in the semifinals, while Athletic beat Eibar in the penalty shoot-out to reach this final.
The red-and-white coach Ángel Villacampa will not be able to count on the injured Garazi Murua, Yulema Corres and María Díaz Cirauqui. Damaris Egurrola, Oihane Hernandez, Andrea de la Nava and Leyre Monente are also not included as a precaution. The list is made up of the following 19 players: Ainhoa Tirapu, Andrea Sierra, Ainhoa Moraza, Ainhoa Álvarez, Nekane Díez, Maite Oroz, Jone Ibáñez, Andere Legina, Eunate Arraiza, Marta Unzué, Erika Vázquez, Lucía García, Marta Perea, Leia Zarate, Vanesa Gimbert, Ane Azkona, Ohiane Valdezate, Mariana Cerro and Nerea Nevado.
