In the end also Iker Guarrotxena will reinforce BA from the first team, appart from Saborit and Unai López.

MF Néstor Salinas (Mirandés)

DF Inigo Lekue (promoted to Athletic)

Sounds great, if they play in San Mamés, I will definitely go to the match, because I am in Bilbao then, anyways.

(Athletic plays Barcelona one day after... but I fear I won't get any tickets :( ).

The game ended 2-0 for Almería. BA plays today against Barakaldo. Ziganda starts with:

Jon Ander Felipe

Jon Ander Amelibia - Gorka Pérez - Enric Saborit - Julen Arellano

Iker Undabarrena - Jon Iru

Yanis Rahmani - Ander Alday - Inigo Córdoba

Asier Villalibre​

Ziganda keeps on playing subs to decide the discards for the season, I guess this is the last game before the discards because the season starts soon and some starters still haven't played a single minute so far. (ie: Yeray)

After the unfair loose in the first game of the season, 0-1 loss against Girona with an offside goal, Ziganda's boys play tomorrow against one of the toughest rivals on theory, Elche.

Probable XI

Alex Remiro

Jon Iru - Óscar Gil - Yeray Álvarez - Urtzi Iriondo

Iker Undabarrena - Mikel Vesga

Iker Guarrotxena - Unai López - Aitor Seguín

Gorka Santamaría



Bench:

GK Jon Ander Felipe
DF Enric Saborit
MF Gorka Iturraspe
MF Lander Olaetxea
MF Inigo Córdoba
FW Jurgi Oteo
FW Asier Villalibre

Unai Bilbao is suspended after the red card against Girona. Ziganda has problems in the right back, even though he has 3 in his squad. Lekue is with the first team, while both Markel Etxeberria and Agirrezabala are injured. That is why he is playing a central midfielder as Jon Iru as rightback.

Liked the looks of Seguin last game against Girona. Kind of disappointed in Unai Lopez, hope it steps up his game a bit today.

Won 1:0 against Alcorcon last weekend with Asier Villalibre scored another goal in Liga Adelante, good stuff from the 17 year-old attacker so far.

Ponferradina is next, will be tough...

Córdoba 1-0 Bilbao Athletic

One more loss for the young lions. The positive thing this season so far is that we're fighting all the games, never outplayed, the competitive DNA is there. We have to improve in attack, score the chances.

Ziganda played a pretty strange lineup:

Alex Remiro

Urtzi Iriondo - Óscar Gil - Yeray Álvarez - Unai Bilbao - Enric Saborit

Unai López - Iker Undabarrena - Mikel Vesga - Inigo Cordoba

Iker Guarrotxena

Also played: Villalibre, Jurgi and Gorka Iturraspe.

Debut a starter for Inigo Córdoba (1997) who was BA's best player btw. Very positive watching 2 18 years old attackers as Villalibre and Córdoba being important in Segunda, looking like really good prospects.

2-0 win for Bilbao Athletic tonight against Llagostera. Goals scored by Gorka Santamaría and Iker Guarrotxena. Guarrotxena missed a penalty. Ziganda changed system and played with a 4-4-2 tonight:

Alex Remiro

Markel Etxeberria - Yeray Álvarez - Oscar Gil - Urtzi Iriondo

Unai López - Iker Undabarrena - Mikel Vesga - Aitor Seguín

Asier Villalibre - Gorka Santamaría

Also played: Iker Guarrotxena, Inigo Córdoba, Lander Olaetxea.


4th penalty missed by Guarrotxena this season,:( at least he scored a goal after that. Best players today Óscar Gil and Undabarrena once again, they're having a very good season ... despite the bad scores.
