José Bordalás meditates what changes do to return to the path of good results after Valencia has not won in the last seven games. The second leg of the Cup semifinal, against Athletic, also conditions and the coach mutters various plans to give a change of direction to the team in the two competitions.
And one of the ideas he has in mind is return to a defense of three centre-backs. The best results during this season they arrived with a defense three backs with two open lanes and now, with the return of Gabriel Paulista after many monthshas wickers again to work on this alternative, either for the duel against Mallorca, for Athletic, or for both.
The truth is that after so long asking for a central defender due to casualties, precisely now Bordalás will have the four fully fit central defenders. Therefore, once Gabriel completes the shoot after four months standing still, It is not unreasonable to think of a central defense with Diakhaby, Gabriel and Alderete, with Foulquier and Gayà on the flanks.
Precisely the Spanish-Brazilian completed yesterday his first very demanding session since he rejoined the group. The lesion is healed but he had a set in a play in which the injured area bothered him somewhat. However, from the club they do not give it importance and think that it is something normal after so long stopped.
