Gayà returns on board for another ‘final’ in Mestalla

Mestalla is preparing this Saturday to carry his team in another league ‘final’. And there are already several consecutive ones. This time it will be against Osasuna and with the clear objective of chaining another victory at home. It would be Rubén Baraja’s second in two games led in the Valencian fiefdom, an achievement that would undoubtedly strengthen the fan-squad link. The technician also receives reinforcements for the appointment. High caliber as well. Gayà and Nico have already fully recovered from their respective injuries and will be part of the squad.

Both the captain and the midfielder on loan from Barça confirmed, in yesterday’s training session, the good feelings they had offered throughout the week. Both jumped onto the Paterna pitch and completed the session with the group. They are one hundred percent to help the team get out of this critical situation that has dragged Valencia to the ‘red spots’ in the standings.

Gayà has met the deadlines. Pedreguer’s full-back was injured on February 20 against Getafe. He suffered a ligamentous sprain in his right ankle that forced him to miss the games against Real Sociedad and FC Barcelona. Gayà has worked almost tirelessly to avoid any unforeseen delays in his recovery process. They have been moved by two reasons: The first and main, to help the team to add the three points and get out of the relegation places. His return became even more important after the injury suffered by Lato and that will leave him in the dry dock for several weeks. The second, compete before the new national coach Luis de la Fuente offers his first list (March 17) and reach the decisive week with real options.

Cavani, almost discarded

Since the beginning of the week there was also the possibility that Cavani would reappear this Saturday against the ‘rojillo’ team, but as the week progresses it seems more complicated. The Uruguayan did not jump onto the Paterna pitch this Thursday with the rest of his teammates, as has been the case all week. In the last sessions he went to work later, although always alone. With just one training session to go before the game, he’s practically out. Neither did Jaume, Paulista, Lato or Marcos André train. All of them will be low against Osasuna.
