Ruben Azcona Called Up For Bilbao Athletic’s Season Opener Against Haro Deportivo
Bilbao Athletic will look to kick off their season with a win on Sunday as the Kumeak travel to face off with newly-promoted Haro Deportivo. Joseba Etxeberria’s side has looked strong throughout the summer but the team will be lacking options in attack. Ewan Urain and Juan Artola have both been dealing with discomfort and will miss the match.
Due to the absences, CD Basconia striker Ruben Azcona has been called up to the squad for Sunday’s league opener. Andoni Tascón is expected to lead the attack but there is a chance that Azcona could make his Bilbao Athletic debut. Meanwhile, Jon Morcillo and Asier Córdoba will likely feature on the wings.
Ruben Azcona has been entrusted to lead the Basconia attack this season, but being able to spend time with Bilbao Athletic will be great for his development. It remains to be seen just how many times the 18-year-old will be called up throughout the year although it’s clear that he has a bright future ahead.
