Raba, uncertainty in the break

The Christmas break could be good news for a leganes that, if the competition had not stopped shortly, he could have lost a good handful of days to Dani Raba. The Cantabrian winger, surely his fittest footballer in the last month, was injured last Saturday in Andorra. He left the pitch in the second half ostensibly limping, affected by a knee ailment. Yesterday, Monday, he underwent tests after returning to the capital on Sunday. The club has not made any official medical report. For now, a good sign. The Butarque entity only usually makes this type of injury public when it is seriously serious.

It will officially be Imanol idiakezthe pepineros coach in charge of making a public assessment of the injury to dani raba when next Saturday he appears before the media in the preview of the duel on Monday 19 (9:00 p.m., Butarque) against the Saragossalast clash of 2022.

It is expected that by that date, without being precise in the diagnosis (Idiakez usually guards himself very much from revealing more information than is due), he will paint the severity of the ailment. The best of scenarios, that is, a minor injury (knee sprain, strain…) could return the blue and white ’17’ to return to competition in 2023. Leganés will open the year on January 6 against lugo also in Butarque. It will also be the first game of the second round.

untimely discharge

If the injury is really complex, it could cause a longer absence, a serious problem for a leganes that before the injury he already knew that Raba would not be against him Saragossa, since he saw his fifth yellow card in the previous minutes. Its loss cuts off a valuable resource.

Balancing on the blackboard

For the imminent clash before the hands at least Idiakez will recover three key pieces at once: Juan Muñoz and Rubén Pardo, sanctioned, and Gaku Shibasaki, already in Spain after his World Cup tour with Japan. Presences that could even change the tactical physiognomy of the blue and whites.

Precisely the drop in Gaku made Idiakez decide to modulate the midfield to create a Pardo-Undabarrena double pivot with Raba ahead as offensive loose verse. With the Japanese back, the coach could go back to the ‘trivote’ of yesteryear with the option, once again, of throwing Cissé on the wing if necessary, given the bouts of fatigue on the Lega wingers. Again a juggling exercise for a board shaken by many problems in recent days.
