first_imgJESUS ​​RUBIO & nbsp; (DAILY AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Germán Valera celebrates with Ricard and Óscar Clemente a goal against Celta B.JESUS ​​RUBIO (DAILY AS) However, in the last six games those of Nacho Fernández have only managed to add five of the 18 points at stake, with a single win (0-1 against San Sebastían de los Reyes) and a last dramatic day, where Atlético went ahead against Racing de Ferrol twice (1-0 with a goal by Camello and 2-1 with a goal by Toni Moya de penalty) but he received the tie on the last play of the match. Therefore, downtime will be a moment for Atlético in which must take morale to face the last leg of the season and where the return of Germán Valera will be accelerated, a key player in the team and already a rookie under Simeone with the last moments of the match against Levante. The Murcian had to undergo in January a arthroscopic surgery for instability problems in the shoulder and he still has a little less than a month of recovery to be rehabilitated. With the age of majority fulfilled during the quarantine, Valera is a very important player in Atleti B and brings dribble, imbalance and goal, with four goals in 14 games this year. A low that joined Darío Poveda’s when he dominated the group’s scorers table and had also debuted with the first team, although in the case of the tip his loss is long-lasting. A second rojiblanco team with the latest punctures five points from Atlético Baleares, leader of the competition and three from Ibiza, second place. Some figures that can be covered with ten days to be disputed in the event of solving the current medical crisis. The lead with the fifth, first team that would be left out of the playoffs, is 12 points, which is an important mattress. A set full of talent and players who already know what it is to play under Simeone. At the great level of Riquelme (today turns 20), which has already aroused the interest of multiple European teams, join Camel, Óscar Clemente (top league scorer with ten goals), Borja Garcés, Toni Moya, Manu Sánchez, Ricard, Sanabria, Solano, Carlos Isaac, Dos Santos or Germán Valera himself, all with protagonism with Cholo from last year. In addition to other future names such as Álvaro García, Medrano, Cedric, Diego Conde or the newcomer Calavera. Atleti B will have to take this break as a moment to recharge their batteries and return to the spirit that led them to first place for much of the tournament based on a joyous game with a great goal and a great future for the squad.center_img The halt of all European competitions due to the coronavirus pandemic maintains the uncertainty of when will you be able to compete again in Spain, one of the countries most affected by the disease. Meanwhile, the players continue exercising at their respective addresses with the mentality of not losing the competitive rhythm and that their state of form is altered as little as possible. In the case of Atlético B, the forced cessation of the competition has caught him in a crisis of results, but with the clear mentality of end up fighting for promotion to the Second Division.
