The club has finally defined the plan for the last week before the debut in liga against Real Zaragoza; in the beginning it was speculated about the possibility of a mini-tour in Italy, which was including friendly matches against Catania Calcio and Parma FC, later only this last rival was confirmed and the idea was to spend the week in Spain.

There was also the chance to visit Brazil and play at the mythic Maracaná stadium against Flamengo, but the option was discarded as the club’s officials feared the physical consequences of the long trip just days before the first game on the liga campaign.

And on Friday the club announced the final plan for the week. It consists in a mini-concentration in Greece that will include a friendly match against Olympiakos FC, club that ended 2nd during the regular season and that currently has players like ex- Zaragoza Diogo, ex-Real Madrid Raul Bravo and ex-Liverpool Albert Riera.

The idea is to travel to Greece at the beginning of the week and later play the game on Wednesday (Stadium Karaiskaki, 20h00 CET). Later the team will travel to Rome in order to face SS Lazio - The match will take place on Sunday August 22nd, 2010 (Estadio Olimpico, 21h00 CET). This match in Rome is replacing the previously announce match against Parma and will also mean the last test for Lotina before the debut in liga.
