Brief news note: Mariano Barbosa is in a hospital for observation after our 3-0 win over Alavés. With about 20 minutes remaining in the match he came out to deny a cross and took a knee to the head. He continued and finished the match (not sure that was the best concussion protocol).
The other news after the match is that Alavés has fired their coach, Luis Zubeldía, after today’s loss—their fourth in succession with no goals scored yet. Perhaps the new coach will move Alfonso Pedraza from left back to left wing, where he is more comfortable.
