Víctor hasn’t hinted if he will switch the draw for the visit to Atlético Madrid, it’s neither clear if Lucas Pérez will play, his possible replacements would be Oriol Riera or Jonathan Rodriguez.

It’s highly probable that coach Víctor Sánchez will keep the 4-3-3 draw of the past four games. Firstly, because he hasn’t tested any draw in the three training sessions had on this week. Normally he trains the scheme for the game in the previous training before the match (Friday), but when he switched into the 4-3-3 (at RCD Espanyol) he started testing the draw early in the week.

Secondly, it seems the perfect draw according to the view of the coach, because Depor will play on the counterattack against Atlético and the presence of three centre midfielders and two full-backs is something that will allow the crosses from the wings and the arrival of the midfielders for the secondary plays, exactly what the coach likes for these kinds of situations.

In this sense it is importance to notice that Juanfran Moreno is available after joining the trainings on Thursday. The Madrilenian will be a starter at the Calderón stadium performing at the right side of the defence.

But Lucas Pérez will hardly be available, he hasn’t trained during the week and will probably miss the game in Madrid. His possible replacement could be Oriol Riera, who scored his first goal on the season a fortnight ago against Athletic.

The other option is Jonathan Rodriguez, but it isn’t probable after not been picked for the last two games. He has only been a starter in five opportunities and, actually, he has only played 21 minutes in 2016 (home games Vs. Valencia, Rayo Vallecano and Granada CF).
