On loan Arsenal prodigy Carlos Vela expects to start from bench tonight, when the Osasunistas travel to the spanish island “Mallorca” to face RCD Real Mallorca at Ono Estadi.
Vela had two poor performances in the last two matches, first at Mestalla against Valencia and then against spanish Champions Real Madrid. Jose Angel Ziganda feels that the young Mexican needs a break, to have him freshly back for the last two matchdays in La Liga. Vela will be replaced tonight by spanish midfielder Hector Font, but Czech international Jaroslav Plasil will start on the left wing, with Hector Font more in a central role.
After the home defeat on Sunday against Real Madrid, as Gonzalo Higuain knocked out the hosts in the last minute, needs the side from Coach Jose Angel Ziganda a vital away victory to keep the chance to stay in spanish’s top division.
