Real Murcia meet Córdoba at the Estadio Nueva Condomina with a place in the Liga BBVA promotion playoff final at stake. If the match needed any more excitement, it is finely poised following the goalless draw played out in the first leg between the two sides.
Murcia will have the small advantage of playing the game at home, spurred on by thousands of fans, something which could well have a huge effect on the result. The home side's manager, Julio Velázquez, was quick to send a message to his fans: "It's all to play for. We are at home, with our fans. We need to be twelve out on that pitch". Velázquez also assured fans that his side would come out "looking to win from the first minute", and looked to play down the notion of any pressure. "We are here to enjoy the opportunity afforded to us by the players and their fantastic work". They will be looking for key man Kike García, who scored 23 goals this term, to fire them through.
In front of them is a Córdoba side who, in the words of their manager Albert Ferrer, go into the match "in great form" and "with a lot of hope". "I'm as optimistic as always. In the last few weeks the side have shown their strength and ability to recover", added the Andalusian side's manager, who will be without the injured Pelayo Novo for the match. A spectacular is guaranteed at the Nueva Condomina.Final del formulario
