The Iberdrola Guerreras League is back and it does so with an appointment in which the Donostiarras will have to visit Zonzamas Cicar Lanzarote this Sunday
The wait has been long since last November 17, Super Amara Bera Bera received and won (28-22) at Gasca Unicaja Banco Gijón in the last game before the World Cup dispute, the appointment that has caused in definitive a break of almost two months.
However, the Iberdrola Guerreras League is back and it does so with an appointment in which the Donostiarras will have to visit Zonzamas Cicar Lanzarote (Sunday, 12 noon), the bottom row that has not yet scored. “The team wants to compete again almost two months later,” acknowledges coach Imanol Álvarez. According to the Ermuarra, “we are training well and generally we usually come back from breaks at a good level”, although he is concerned that “overconfidence when facing the latter could take its toll”.
Even so, he insists that taking on Lanzarote and Morvedre the next two days is something “positive” in order to face “with guarantees and shots” the great game against Rocasa -second to 3 points- that will be played in Donostia on the next 5th of February.
A safe loss due to covid
It is perhaps the aspect that concerns Álvarez the most. “Covid-19 is marking the situation, in recent days we have had up to six positives (plus assistant Álex Nogués) and that has had an impact on training.” For this weekend, adds Imanol, “in principle we will only have one casualty, but we will have to see how those who have spent so many days at home are doing.”
Meanwhile, Bera Bera remains focused on its main objective, which is none other than to consolidate itself at the top of the table while the club prepares the Queen’s Cup of which it will host. “We are leaders and what we want is to continue winning week after week to be able to increase the income with our pursuers,” says the one from Ermua. “I am aware that on Sunday we will have irregular moments, it is normal, but we must continue to improve to grow,” he concludes.
