Trops Málaga wants to recover from its last setback at home against Valinox Novás if it does not want to fall behind the teams at the top. This purpose involves winning this Sunday, at home, one of the serious contenders to fight for promotion to Asobal, such as San Pablo Burgos. The match, of maximum tension, since both teams need the victory to remain in the outstanding squad, will be played at 12:00 p.m., in the El Plantío Municipal pavilion from the capital of Burgos.
Trops faces this difficult match with six points, four behind the first and second places, hence the need to score points in El Plantío. However, as noted by the Malaga full-back Alberto Castro, “Sunday’s match is going to be very tough against a very good team, designed and planned to be at the top of the standings, even to aspire to direct promotion to Asobal. We have prepared well for the match and have worked hard all week. “We are going to try to go there with the maximum of ambitions and with great desire to try to get the two points that we need so much, after the tough defeat suffered last Sunday.” commented Castro, who has insisted that the negative result against Novás “means that you cannot have a margin for error if you want to continue aspiring to the maximum and if you want to continue being at the top,” he stressed.
In the chapter of casualties, the usual one of captain Adrián Portela is joined by that of pivot Juanma Cabrerawho will have to undergo surgery next week for an anterior cruciate ligament injury sustained in the match against Novás.
