Ruben Azcona In A Race For Fitness Ahead Of Promotional Playoffs
In one month CD Basconia will meet Portugalete in the first round of the Tercera promotional playoffs. The Basauritarras are hopeful of earning promotional, which also depends on Bilbao Athletic, and have been training over the past few weeks in preparation.
Basconia have enjoyed a very successful season under first-year manager Patxi Salinas, exceeding expectations in many ways. However, scoring goals has been an issue at times. Midfielder Youssouf Diarra leads the team with 12 goals this season, but Basconia could get a massive boost for the playoffs.
After undergoing meniscus surgery earlier this season, Ruben Azcona is now in a race for fitness. According to a report from Javier Beltrán of El Correo, the striker could rejoin the group in training as early as next week with the hope of being cleared to play before the match against Portugalete.
