Comesaña’s return was scheduled for mid-March. More or less, the same date for which Well should have been recovered. The playmaker was going to have to stop for about six weeks, after suffering “a tear in the adductor major of the right thigh”. An injury that was made in the course of the match against Extremadura and completely fortuitous, since he received no blow. Who is practically recovered is Velázquez. The defender suffered “a rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament of his left knee” during the preseason, for which he was forced to abandon the concentration and undergo surgery. However, that is already past for the Uruguayan central defender, who has gradually reintegrated with the group. Emi returned to work with her colleagues the week before the last league game, that of Elche.
