With only three games remaining until the competition ends in the Second Division, Amorebieta faces a monumental challenge. Located four points away from permanence, the zornotzarras are fully aware that their room for maneuver is extremely limited. The motto is clear: win or win, without worrying about the results of their direct rivals.

The visit to Heliodoro Rodríguez López

Jandro Castro's team is preparing for its second visit to the Heliodoro Rodríguez López, a stadium that does not bring back good memories due to a controversial refereeing performance in the past. However, the Zornotzarras are focused on seeking a crucial victory that would bring them closer to their goal of staying in professional football.

Mirandés, a direct rival for Amorebieta, opened matchday 40 in LaLiga Hypermotion with a draw in Anduva against Elche, a result that could benefit the Biscayans if they manage to win their match. With 45 points, Mirandés is still in the fight, and Amorebieta will have to pay close attention to the results of its direct competitors.

A vital match against Tenerife

The match against Tenerife is both vital and dangerous. Amorebieta already defeated Tenerife in Lezama with a score of 2-0, but now they face a team that, although it is in the middle of the table with no aspirations for promotion or fear of relegation, can be a difficult opponent. Asier Garitano and his men, playing in front of their fans and without the pressure of qualification, could be a difficult opponent to beat.

Jandro Castro, in his press conference prior to the trip to Tenerife, warned about the dangers of facing a 'relaxed' team. «The need for Amorebieta must be noted above the green of Heliodoro,» he emphasized, underlining the importance of intensity and concentration to avoid falling into haste.

Manage emotions and the return of key players

Managing emotions will be key for Amorebieta in these crucial matches. They must keep a cool head and prevent the pressure of the situation from affecting them negatively. The experience of having played 'finals' in previous days can be a factor in their favor.

For this vital meeting, Jandro will be able to count on three 'new' additions: Etxeita returns after serving a suspension, and Jorge Mier and Álex Carbonell return after overcoming their respective injuries. These players could be crucial to strengthening the team at this decisive moment.

Etxeita, presumably, will be part of the starting eleven, either as a partner of Bustinza in a defense of four or in the center of a defense of three centre-backs. In the center of the field, Morán could once again form a duo with Sibo, while the main unknown lies at the top of the attack, where Jauregi has many options to be a starter.

Possible starting eleven

Amorebieta's possible eleven to face Tenerife could be the following:

Magunagoitia Núñez, Bustinza, Etxeita, Lasure; Morán, Sibo; Dorrio, Unzueta, Morcillo; Jauregi.
