Miguel Ángel Ramírez has already written the script for his team to follow at the Carlos Tartiere. After a “special” week, he said, of working behind closed doors in Mareo, he explained yesterday that “we have talked about how important the details in the areas are in these games and how solid we have to be there” “We rely on the game and the established match plan, that’s what has led us to focus our energy and our thoughts,” he stressed.
The coach was calm and confident in the work done. His message was also a slow one. With a respectful tone he referred to the eternal rival, without caring that Oviedo are bottom: “In a derby it doesn’t matter how you are and where you come from. It’s always a different duel”.
Despite just one point so far this season, Oviedo took a step forward last weekend. “They are more solid and from that solidity they generated more scoring chances. They were able to pass better and reached the box more easily”.
Sporting lose Djuka, which suggests a change of system, with three midfielders. Ramírez not only did not reveal his idea, but left open the possibility of continuing with two strikers: “We have options up front with other strikers. We have Campuzano back, who, after having spoken to him, is there because he has always been training with absolute normality. We have reached a compromise to make him important”.
Both he and the squad are aware of the importance of the Tartiere clash. Ramírez has been reminded of this by a fan. “I haven’t been out on the streets much because I’ve been at Mareo for many hours. But people don’t miss the chance to wish me luck and tell me that we have to win”.
The coach left a message for Sportinguismo. “We will try to represent the values of the club. We will try to dominate the game, fight for every ball and be brave. We want them to feel represented and proud of their team”.
