This Saturday, November 9, from 4.30 pm, Lezama will host a high-level clash between two of the best football youth academies. Athletic Club Women B will host FC Barcelona B in the 9th matchday of Reto Iberdrola Norte. The two subsidiaries are only separated by one point in the table. Barcelona B is second with 16 points, while the red-and-white are seventh with 15. The classification is very tight as there are only 6 points between the first and ninth classified. If Athletic wins it could snatch second place to Barcelona. Iraia Iturregi’s pupils were not defeated last October and they hope to be able to beat the rival this weekend.
The coach from Loiu could count on the players of the subsidiary, since the first team rests this weekend for international commitments: “During the week have been notable nerves and also desire, because playing against a rival like Barça is very motivating for anyone. Our goal as a subsidiary is to train players for the first team, who develop individually above being in the top positions of the classification. However, I think both things can go hand in hand, and, in fact, I think we are fulfilling the objective because we are competing very well.”
