Abde, free verse in a choral team

In the precise machinery set up by Jagoba Arrasate in Osasuna, in the midst of the collectivist commitment of one of the most difficult blocks to defeat in LaLiga, sparks of uncontrollable free verse break out. Abdessamad Ezzalzouli (Beni Mellal, Morocco; 21 years old) dribbles, has fun and constantly challenges his rivals. The Moroccan, on loan from FC Barcelona, ​​is a pure winger, with street code football, who has found in his loan to El Sadar the perfect habitat to hone his perseverance and competitiveness.

Its incidence is increasing in the game, as seen in recent weeks, in matches charged with tension, and in the climactic minutes, against Sevilla and Athletic Club (in the Copa del Rey). His innate ability to unbalance took a while to re-carburize after his time in the World Cup, but now he is very sharp again.

It will be the great element of surveillance of the defense of Rubén Baraja, who has improved the defensive performance of Valencia in his first three games on the bench. After betting on a double winger at the Camp Nou against FC Barcelona, ​​it will be necessary to see what Baraja’s choice is in the right lane to torpedo the dribbling and little footsteps of Abde, who usually appears on the left, although he falls on both flanks .

The effect that Osasuna may have on Abde’s career may be very similar to what, in the early 2000s,had Mendilibar’s Eibar to shape the career of another pure talent like David Silva, then on loan from Valencia.

An eleven almost by heart

One of the distinctive features of Osasuna is having consolidated such a homogeneous and reliable block, in which the line-up is almost recited by heart, like the old-fashioned way. Only two or three troops enter the inertia of the rotations. Thus, the alignment that Arrasate puts into play today can almost be deciphered with certainty. Aitor Fernández in goal, with Moncayola seated on the right side and Aridane and David García (name that points to selectable by De la Fuente) in the center of defense.

The left-handed lane is disputed by Manu Sánchez and Juan Cruz. In the core, no doubts. Lucas Torró and Moi Gómez from Alicante seem irreplaceable together with youth squad player Aimar Oroz. On the right wing of a stadium that does not give him anything bad, the combative “Chimy” Ávila will strike while the center of the attack will be for Budimir. Without aiming in front of the goal, his work will be more determined with the work of wearing down the rival defense.

The work of Braulio Vázquez

With Osasuna in the orbit of the European squares and with great options to qualify for the final of the Copa del Reysocial networks usually recover the viral statements that, three seasons ago, Braulio Vázquez made to confirm Jagoba Arrasate in his position.

At that time, Osasuna seemed doomed, anchored as a prominent bottom team, but the former sports director of Valencia highlighted the validity and validity of the project, as well as solidarity with a loved technician in the house and solvent in his service sheet. Little by little, in the opposite direction to the impatience of so many clubs, Osasuna was not only taking flight, but also breaking into as an alternative to Europe, with the same base. Braulio will be reunited with his son, Jesús Vázquez, whose level at the Camp Nou was outstanding.
