A customs for Oier

first_imgThe good news is that, unlike previous seasons, UEFA’s official regulations for the Europa League do allow, at point 43.02, to participate players who have already performed in this competition, or in the Champions League, with another club. And that is the case of Raúl de Tomás, who had minutes in four Champions League games with Benfica (he even scored a goal against St. Petersburg’s Zenit), and Leandro Cabrera, that with Getafe played three matches in the league of this Europa League, also getting to score a goal, against Krasnodar. In the absence of formalization by UEFA, of list A (of 25 players) fall with respect to the group stage Lluís López and Esteban Granero (not Javi Puado, who was ready B) and the unknown is if Sébastien Corchia continues enrolled despite his injury. If so, someone else should cause the relationship to be canceled so that the three signings can enter: RdT, Embarba and Cabrera. The Wolverhampton Wanderers awaits next Thursday the 20th. The parakeet club, not in vain, meets the point 42.12, the obligation to point at least two goalkeepers on their list A, since it has Diego López and Andrés Prieto. And it has in the list B (born from 1998) to Adrián López (also included in the previous relationship Joan García, but was seriously injured). And, in the worst case, 43.04 allows a new registration in case a goalkeeper suffers an injury at least one month off. The bad news for Espanyol, however, stands at the immediately previous point of the regulation, the 43.01, which dictates that “as of the round of 16, a club may enter a maximum of three new players eligible for the remaining matches of the current competition“That is to say, of the four signings that Espanyol has made in the winter market, the three mentioned more Adrián Embarba and Oier Olazabal, one had to stay out. And the idea of ​​the club, at the close of this edition, was that the victim was the goalkeeper, which will be presented this Tuesday at 16:00 in Cornellà. Although LaLiga is an absolute priority, Can’t clue Espanyol as a Europa League club, since at midnight this Monday to Tuesday exceeded the deadline to register new players for the round of 16 and the remainder of the tournament. And he does it with good news and another not so much.last_img read more
