El Guardés, one hour away from being champion in Europe

Mecalia Atlético Guardés is 60 minutes away from winning its first continental title, a major challenge that involves defending at the Dilek SabancÄ Sport Hall in Turkey the six-goal lead he achieved against Antalya Konyaalti in A Sangriña. The Galician team faces the second leg of the European Cup final at its best moment of the season. Not even the wear and tear from the accumulation of matches makes the Portuguese Ana Seabra distrusts the options of Atlético Guardés, who last Wednesday drew a draw against Rocasa in the first match of the tie for the Iberdrola league title.

The Atlético Guardés coach has all her players available except for the long-term injured Ángela Nieta and Julia Núez. Seabra recovers Cristina Cifuentes, María Sancha and Pauli Fernández, who were rested in the match against Rocasa. The options of lifting the trophy will undoubtedly depend on the defensive performance of his team. In A Sangriña, the 6-0 system, with Estefanía Descalzo and Carla Gómez in the central zone, stopped the powerful line of their rival, who suffered the loss of center-back Yasemin Sahin. Antalya Konyaalti, a team that averages almost 30 goals per game, stayed at 17 in Galicia. Ana Seabra highlighted that her team has a “unique opportunity” to make history on the track of Antalya Konyaalti. “We really want to do a good job and win the Cup. We have to be ambitious. You don’t have an opportunity like this many times in your life”, declared the Portuguese.

Seabra acknowledges that the players are “a bit tired” after last Wednesday’s game against Rocasa Gran Canaria, but understands that three days is “more than enough” time for recovery. “We are very well mentally and physically we will also be”, said the Portuguese, who says “to be ready” for “possible changes in the game” of Konyaalti after what happened in A Sangriña: “We are very aware that there may be surprises”.
