He Córdoba CF returns this Sunday night to The Archangel with the aim of maintaining the fight with Málaga for third place in the Group 2 of First Federation. While the Malaguistas must visit the reborn Melilla of Juan Sabas, the team Ivan Ania will receive at 8:00 p.m. (FEF TV) in El Arcángel a Atlético de Madrid B which aims to be a quite different team from the one that allowed itself to be beaten by the Cordoba supporters in the Thorn Hillin the first round (1-6).
A subsidiary that matures
Since that fateful afternoon for Luis Tevenet’s kids, the Colchonero reserve team has only lost one match and seems to be getting the pulse of the category after the promotion achieved last spring from the Second RFEF. The seven goals of Diego Bri (the same ones that Antonio Casas wears) and the scoring growth of Adrian Niñowhich now has four and has shone in the Youth League, they have pulled the wagon of a team that was naive and that has progressively taken the category by storm. It should not be enough to harm a Córdoba CF that has also been reborn after some doubts that have arisen in recent weeks, caused mainly by the losses suffered in the last month and a half and that now seem to be giving a truce to the team. Ivan Ania.
Without going any further, just as the white and green medical services Since last week, Isma Ruiz has been at the disposal of the Córdoba coach and could even jump from the start. He has against him the break he has suffered in recent weeks and the consistent performance of Álex Sala in the green and white victory from last day in Linarejos (0-2).
Premiere of the signings
Furthermore, Córdoba CF arrives at El Arcángel tonight with the two new faces arrivals in the winter transfer market: Alvaro Leivawhich already debuted with the green and white jersey in the mining stadium, eight days ago, and José Antonio Martínezwho trained normally throughout the week and, with Carlos García’s injury, is now competing with the kid Matías Barboza as Adrián Lapeña’s companion in the axis of defense.
The Algeciras midfielder also has options to start if we take into account that Kike Marquez He ended the week with some physical discomfort and, if the Sanluqueño is available, he also has serious possibilities on the left due to the absence due to suspension of AdilsonMendestop scorer for the Blanquiverde team along with Antonio Casas (seven goals each).
It’s a shame that the Portuguese is missing, since along with that week in November in which he scored four goals in three games, the last month was clearly the best since he arrived at the green and white entity last summer.
In any case, the Córdoba CF I shouldn’t miss him, not just because he has in that area Alvaro Leiva or of Simo, but because, in general, the green and white team has rebuilt itself after a period in which it suffered excessive losses due to injury and some due to suspension that affected the performance, in general, of the group. Now, Ivan Ania He already has relief in practically all positions (the left back continues to be a risk area) to improve in the pending issue of this Córdoba CF in 2023-24: his performances in El Arcángel. The Córdoba team would be fighting side by side for direct promotion with Ibiza and Castellón in case their home line was more regular and had not let go of no less than 13 points. From tonight, before the Atlético de Madrid B must improve in that line and to do so it has new faces.
Córdoba CF: Carlos Marín, Carlos Albarrán, Adrián Lapeña, Mati Barboza, Calderón, Álex Sala, Diarra, Carracedo, Kuki Zalazar, Álvaro Leiva, Alberto Toril.
Atlético de Madrid B: Iturbe, Pablo Pérez, Marco, Mariano, Dani Martínez, Javi Boñar, Assane Ndiaye, Gismera, Nabil, El Jebari, Niño.
Tevenet does not beat Córdoba CF from the bench
On the rival bench, tonight at El Arcángel, he will sit Luis García Tevenet, whose second is Javi Pineda from Córdoba. The Sevillian coach has crossed paths as a coach with Córdoba CF up to four times. And he has never managed to beat the green and white team, with whom he met on three occasions in the Second Division. As coach of Huesca he tied one goal at El Arcángel in the 2015-16 season. Two seasons later, also in the silver category and now as coach of the Sevilla reserve team, they tied at the Sevilla Sports City (1-1), while in the second round match of that campaign, at El Arcángel, they were beaten ( 3-0) against Córdoba CF with goals from Sergi Guardiola and Narváez (two). Finally, in the duel of the first round of this campaign they lost by a landslide (1-6) at Cerro del Espino. At least, Tevenet does know what it is to beat the Blanquiverde subsidiarysince in the 2014-15 campaign, when he led Cartagena, he won both League matches against the Córdoba reserve team, which helped him play in the qualifying rounds for promotion to Second, although he achieved his goal.
