Juca and Ze Castro are doubtful for Saturday’s game at Valladolid. At least Bodipo is already recovered. Valladolid also has two casualties for the game (Sisi and Sesma), while Arzo is doubtful.

It seems that neither Juca nor Ze Castro will be available for Sunday’s visit to Real Valladolid (17h00 CET). The Brazilian completed part of Tuesday’s training, but on Wednesday he stayed at the gym since he was still feeling pain on his right thigh. Meanwhile, Portuguese Zé Castro hasn’t surpassed yet an injury on the rectus muscle of his right thigh and will probably stay out of the match. Of the three casualties for the game against Sevilla, only Rodolfo Bodipo has surpassed his injury (muscular).

Lotina hasn’t tested yet any formation for the match, but it will probably do it today as the team will train behind closed doors at the Riazor (10h30 CET). On the past Saturday the Basque manager surprised with  a couple of modifications, including the debut as starter of Iván Pérez, and switching the system into a 4-3-3 figure, something that worked out against Sevilla FC. 

Meanwhile, Real Valladolid is having it own injury problems. Winger Sisinio González 'Sisi' (left fibula) and midfielder Jonathan Sesma (costal cartilage - ribs) are already discarded for the game, while ex-Villarreal defender César Arzo is doubtful with a Triceps surae injury sustained during Tuesday’s training.

At least ex-Celta Néstor Fabián Canobbio is already fit to play after missing the game against Real Madrid due to an ankle sprain. Justo Villar is also returning to the squad after been rested due to international action with Paraguay, while ex-Depor right-back defender Antonio Barragán has surpassed a muscular injury. Barragán has only played 164 minutes on this season, while ex-Depor keeper Fabricio is still waiting for a chance to debut in liga wearing Valladolid’s shirt.
