Right after the morning training session in the Mini Stadium of the Sports City, coach Velázquez has named the 18 footballers that are called up to face Sporting de Gijón in El Molinón stadium (12 pm Spanish time, GMT+2). The news is the return of Marcos Senna, who missed the last match against Córdoba injured, and Manu Trigueros' recovery (he had some physical problems these past few days). Mateo Musacchio on the other hand, was not feeling well enough and won't travel with the team to Gijón.
The squad is as follows:
Goalkeepers: Juan Carlos and Diego Mariño.
Defenders: Javi Venta, Mario, Mellberg, Truyols, Lejeune and Jaume Costa.
Midfielders: Marcos Senna, Bruno, Cani, Manu Trigueros, Moi Gómez, Hernán Pérez and Toribio.
Forwards: Gerard Bordas, Uche and Cavenaghi.
Injured players: Musacchio, Pandiani, Rossi
