Player Talk: Chimy Avila discusses Athletic thumping; Aspas hypes up Cardoso

Ahead of Saturday’s Celta Vigo’s tie with Huesca, Iago Aspas and Chimy Avila have both been discussing their side’s form.

The Galician side have a good opportunity to bounce back from league defeats to Real Madrid and Real Sociedad with their game against Huesca.

Cardoso was hauled in over the international break to replace Antonio Mohamed, but he is yet to win and the pressure will be on him this Saturday to deliver in front of an expected crowd.

The visitors have started their debut season in Spain’s top flight in mixed form, taking just seven points from 13 games and they must approach the game as a ‘must-win’ to get away from the drop zone.

Francisco’s men arrive however, having just been thumped by a struggling Athletic Bilbao side in mid-week, losing 4-0 in the Copa del Rey.

This will be the first head to head tie between the two in just over six years and Huesca have been the more successful side over the years when the two have met.

Chimy Avila believes Athletic defeat will make Huesca stronger

“It is worrying that we are not winning but we know it is going to come, because we are doing things right. We need to continue like this, the results will start to come, maybe we are not on the right foot, but it will change.

“All the rivals are tough, we have to go out and play our best game. We are anxious, but we have to remain calm at the moment.”

Iago Aspas talks up Cardoso’s philosophy

“He has got off on the right foot, he has a good philosophy, although we are a little bit in a hurry to get points on the board. It will be a difficult match, they are a team who want to win and get points. They will want to leave Balaidos with a win.”
