CAPARROS WILL REPEAT THE LINEUP

22 Sep 2006
It seems that Deportivo will play with the same lineup that defeated Villarreal on the past weekend. This means that Riki will continue to play as striker and Cristian as left winger. In Levante the novelty is the absence of Z� Mar�a for injury reasons. C�sar could make his debut with the Valencian squad.

Caparr�s will probably use the same lineup that defeated Villarreal on the past weekend. This means that Aouate, Barrag�n, Lopo, Arbeloa and Capdevila will continue to conform the defensive sector of Deportivo. Coloccini and Sergio will play in midfield, while Cristian will repeat his roll in the left wing. Arizmendi will play on the right and Riki will enjoy a second opportunity as the striker of the squad. �lvaro Arbeloa spoke with the reporters about his relationship with Levante's coach, L�pez Caro, his former trainer in Real Madrid B: "It isn't a special game for me, but it will be weird to see him on the other bench. It was a coach that trusted in me, I owe him a lot." He is also convinced that the Galician team will make its best effort in this match: "We will try to win the game. It's easier to achieve the points at home, but we will try to win this one. We know that it won't be easy." In Levante the novelty is the absence of Z� Mar�a. The Brazilian has a muscular injury on the right leg and he will be out of action for the next 15 days. This mean that C�sar could make his debut with Levante occupying the position of central defender, the ex-Depor player said that he is wishing to play his first game on this liga: "I am really anxious to start playing and help the squad with my effort. I want to debut now." Meanwhile L�pez Caro is expecting a tough match against the Galicians: "We will try to use the necessary tools, but we will face a rival that's ascending. Depor's players like to run a lot and they work in the two aspects of this game -offence and defence-. Besides they are fast and don't give spaces to the rivals." Levante's coach also had eulogies for Caparr�s: "We are friends and we talk a lot about football. For me he is a person that lives the game with passion. His arguments are clear and is an extraordinary coach."
