LaLiga Santander* Data updated as of January 5, 2020 Already at the entrance, striking was the ownership of Óscar Melendo, which certainly came from overcoming ankle discomfort but, in addition, was not of the game in LaLiga since September 15. Three and half months. Another striking recovery in the initial team was that of Javi López, the captain, who had only participated in one of the previous 11 days, there is nothing, and whose performance against the Catalans was simply spectacular.The third big news was David Lopez, not for its ownership but for its return to the midfielder.

The stopped ball, not in vain, is another of the new coach’s hallmarks, as it was for Pablo Machín, although in the case of the Soriano that effect (and many others) dissipated after the first matches.Already during the match, players such as Ander Iturraspe or Matías Vargas, author of assistance to Wu Lei. And it was seen, even in the absence of a goal, the best version of Jonathan Calleri, which was already indisputable with Abelardo in the Alavés.But perhaps the most radical metamorphosis was experienced Marc Roca, who from a rude error in Butarque happened in the derby to be displayed.
