El Athletic deja back the 2020 Cup. Out of obligation and mental health. The final lost with the Royal Society cannot put more pressure on the lions. The team returns to LaLiga -this Wednesday there is another derby against Real in Anoeta and on Saturday a new rivalry duel against Alavs- in preparation with real fire for the 2021 Cup final on April 17 against Barcelona in La Charterhouse. Same scenario as in the final lost on Saturday, but also scenario in which the rojiblancos won the Super Cup against Bara in January.
The first day in Lezama after the final has started with analysis, talk and reflection. The footballers have spent more than two and a half hours without jumping onto the field since they arrived at the facilities. The trabajo invisible va ms all of the gym and activation routines that are followed each day. This time there were other issues to discuss.
Marcelino needs a crash plan. And the team is convinced to carry it out. “We have to admit that we were not as we should have been … it is not so easy to express in words that the team did not compete,” warned Ral Garca at a press conference at 4:00 p.m. this Monday, shortly before meeting with his teammates and the coach.

Athletic has 180 minutes of real fire (Real Sociedad and Alavs) before the final with Barcelona. Those two LaLiga matches should help the team to rearm its concepts and grow. The Dphysical and emotional wear of the recent final with Barcelona and the chaining of three games from Saturday to Saturday will make the coach retouch his next line-ups.
The team works towards the next two commitments with the unique casualties of Peru Nolaskoain, who resumes activity after being away for coronavirus in a season that has been hard for him because the injuries have not allowed him to count, and Zarraga, that this week the external meniscus of the right knee was operated on. The getxotarra can end the campaign.
