He’s already here Royal Zaragoza in Boltana (Huesca), after arriving at the Barceló Monasterio hotel after 8:30 p.m. this Friday. Just over two and a half hours were spent by the club’s official trainer traveling up the Aragonese Pyrenees to the Zaragoza team, covering the 190 kilometers that there are via Barbastro, since the short route through Yebra de Basa (160 kilometers) is not possible for the bus due to its size and the narrowness of the old road that covers the section from Fiscal to Boltaña. Nothing new in the expedition, with tired faces but with the illusion of a flag, as is natural every summer between the leagues.
To finish, the beginner trainer Juan Carlos Carcedo 29 footballers were brought to Sobrarbe, the highest figure in history at this stage of the summer preparation, since the accumulation of contracts in force which the new property inherits slows down the exit process.

The daily program, with a few exceptions that will be seen on the fly, will have a double date, at 7:30 p.m.
