Experience warns Ciudad de Logroño that playing against a subsidiary like Barça is extremely risky. He already ran into him less than a decade ago, in December 2013. At that time, Miguel Velasco, Jorge Martínez, Gurutz Aginagalde, Thiagus Petrus, Sasha Tioumentsev, Luisfe Jiménez, Arthur Patrianova, Josep Masachs, Pedro Rodríguez played in the Rioja team. , Ángel Fernández and Ángel Romero, among others. And some promising youngsters stood up to the Franjivinos to win the Copa del Rey tie on penalties. Those Barça lads who took the victory were full of hope and most of them reached the top. Names like Nacho Biosca, Joao Silva, Adriá Figueras, Víctor Montoya, Oriol Rey, David Balaguer, Joan Amigó or Michel Kasal beat a Ciudad de Logroño team that reached Barcelona in a draw.

History repeats itself tonight at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper: a team from Franjivino with the infirmary at its best is measured, in a single game, against a very young Blaugrana subsidiary. Who knows, but the Bruno Reguart, Marc López, Ian Barrufet -son of the legendary goalkeeper-, Pablo Urdangarín (son of the former international), the left-handed Aleksandar Cenic, Jokin Aja or Ferrán Prieto we may see them in a few years on the slopes of the Asobal League. Because, of that there is no doubt, Barça is one of the teams that works best in the world’s academy.

The Franjivinos travel with the casualties of Cadarso, Rivero and Javi García and the medical team will evaluate if Dutra can be summoned

In the Division of Honor Silver, the azulgrana team has straightened out a bad start to the season in which they tied at the Ovni de Puerto Sagunto and against Ibiza and lost at home against Alicante. From then on, Ferrán Porres’s men defeated Caserío de Ciudad Real (32-26), a team that they also eliminated in extra time to reach this stage of the Copa del Rey, and Antequera (29-30).

Barça Atletic is not exactly the ideal rival to face a single match in a tie like the Copa del Rey and in the current state of Ciudad de Logroño. The azulgrana are young and with a high probability they will run, play on the counterattack and try to kill with their speed and youth. “They give a lot of rhythm to the games. They are young, although we will see if they do not put those who alternate with the first team to play, “said Velasco.

“They are very young people that I do not trust at all. It happened to us a few years ago. It is a single game and it will have to be taken very seriously. If not, we are going to have problems, “said the coach, who will evaluate today, together with the medical team, if he summons Leo Dutra, a player who tore his cruciate ligament last February in Santander.
