Fernando Vázquez has been unable to repeat a lineup on this start of season. For Sunday’s game against Real Murcia he will be missing Kaká at the centre of the defense. There are two options to fill up the spot.

Few modifications in the lineups in this beginning of season, but the point is that after three matchdays in liga coach Fernando Vázquez has been unable to repeat a lineup due to the different circumstances. In matchday 01 Culio was sent off and therefore he was forced to make a change for the home clash against Córdoba CF. Besides, he allowed the debut of Cezary Wilk in matchday 02, the Polish replaced Álex Bergantiños at midfield.

For matchday 03 there were three modifications at the lineup, apart from Culio’s return the Galician tactician allowed the debuts of left-back Luisinho and central attacker Borja Bastón. Now the coach will at least make one change ahead of the home clash with Real Murcia, because Kaká is injured. Curiously the rival for the game has repeated the lineup on the first three games and could do it again at the Riazor.

There are two options in order to fill the spot at the centre of the defense. The main one is to allow the debut of Uxío Marcos with the first team. It’s the main option and what the coach has tested within the last two training sessions. The second is to reconvert Álex Bergantiños. He already played there at the youth teams.

Fernando Vázquez admitted on Thursday that any of these two options will be the selected one for the game against the Murcians. Carlos Marchena will probably be picked after joining the team on Tuesday, but won’t be a starter as he’s lacking match fitness.

The rest of the team will depend in the selected solution for the centre of the defense. If Álex delays his position on the pitch then Wilk will enter into the starting eleven in order to join Juan Dominguez at midfield territory.

The rest of the defensive positions are fixed, with Argentine German Lux covering the goal, while Laure and Luisinho will cover the sides. Pablo Insua will be the other centre-back for the game.

In attack, Fernando Vázquez has more choices compared to the defense. The coach will probably keep playing with Rudy, Culio, Arizmendi and Borja Bastón, but he also has available the options of Juan Carlos, Bicho and Luis.
