Athletic Club’s manager, Ángel Villacampa has appeared before the press on the day before the 11th Matchweek in the Primera Iberdrola. Athletic Club welcomes EDF Logroño, who are sitting just behind the Red and Whites in the table, tomorrow at 5.30 pm at Lezama. “It’s a complicated match. Their forwards are above the average, so they are dangerous, and the team have a quick defensive recovery. We are certain that our side is doing better and better. Players are returning after injuries despite having had really significant absences. Let’s hope one day we’ll have a clean injury sheet. The team keep on developing with players such as Oihane, Valdezate, or Azkona, who have settled in the group.”
Our women’s first team, who have added a total of 5 victories and 4 defeats so far, want to maintain the good impression they showed last week in Vallecas. “We have to continue taking steps forward on the climb we are doing. We don’t want to go back to our previous ‘poor versions’, from which we have already learnt. I think we haven’t seen the best individual side of each player, and that will make us not to give up on anything. There’s still much left and we hope to show that ‘top version’ of our team,” said the red-and-white manager.
The list of the 18 players who will play against EDF Logroño includes Andrea Sierra, Andrea de la Nava, Andere Leguina, Ainhoa Moraza, Erika Vázquez, Lucía García, Vanesa Gimbert, Garazi Murua, Yulema Corres, Eunate Arraiza, Ane Azkona, Damaris Egurrola, Maite Oroz, Marta Unzué, María Díaz, Leia Zarate, Oihane Valdezate and Oihane Hernández.
