Natxo González has picked the same group of players of the game against Granada CF; the rival has big problems due to the injuries.

Deportivo will try to continue in the promotion zone as it visits Gimnástic Tarragona on Sunday (Nou Stadi, 20h30 CET). The club decided to make the trip since Friday, so the roster for the game was already released as the team will make a last training in Reus (Saturday).

Coach Natxo González recovers Michael Krohn-Dehli after the Danish midfielder skipped the game with Granada CF due to suspension. However, he wasn’t included in the roster for the game. The other two players out for tactical reasons are Gerard Valentín and Pedro Sánchez. Therefore it’s the same roster of the game against Granada CF.

Meanwhile, the players out injured are Borja Valle (toe), Sebastián Dubarbier and Diego Caballo (both thigh). In the case of Caballo, he has been training apart during the week and has options to join the group on next week.

Picked players: Dani Giménez, Ortolá (goalkeepers); David Simón, Bóveda, Pablo Mari, Domingos Duarte, Somma, Saúl García (defenders); Edu Expósito, Álex Bergantiños, Pedro Mosquera, Vicente Gómez, Didier Moreno, Carles Gil, Fede Cartabia (midfielders); Carlos Fernández, Christian Santos & Quique González (attackers)

Gimnástic Tarragona arrive to the meeting outside the relegation zone after adding four of its five points within the last two meetings, but coach José Antonio Gordillo is having problems with the injuries as six men are out due to physical problems, while other one is ineligible.

Centre-back Josua Mejias (thigh), midfielder Ramiro Guerra (muscle) and left-back Javi Jiménez (toe fracture) missed the last game at CF Reus, and will also miss Sunday’s game with Deportivo.

And on this week another four men joined the list of casualties, starting with centre-back Raúl Albentosa, who is ineligible to play as Depor is his parent club. The other three men picked injuries: striker Manu Del Moral, right-back Pol Valentín (both thigh) and striker Pol Prats (hamstring).
