Cordoba had a rather disappointing first part of season, as a consequence at the end of November coach Oltra was sacked and replaced by Luis Carrion. The Andalusian side perform much better since that moment, they have 4W 2D 1L at the helm of a new coach. Carrion is a former Barcelona youth player, he likes offensive football. At the pre-match press conference he said that they won't be defending 1:0 lead if the score as first, he also said that his footballing philosophy is to give fun to people. The first-leg between Cordoba and Alcorcon ended goalless. Alcorcon were the better team in that match, but Cordoba's goalkeeper Kieszek prevented their rivals from scoring. Now Kieszek and first-choice centre-back Bijimine are both major doubts due to lllness, they didn't train with the group. Other goalkeeper, Razak, is away on AFCON. Striker Rodri is also a doubt, but he can be replaced by Piovaccari who has previous La Liga experience. There should be good atmosphere as always in Andalusia at Arcangel, good weather, and I expect an open game with goals.
