This Sunday in Lezama, Burgos ceded the baton to Amorebieta as the worst visiting team so far this season in LaLiga Hypermotion. The triumph of Jon Pérez ‘Bolo”s team was a blow for the Zornotzarras, who were confident of being able to get three valuable points to relaunch their fight for permanence. But it was especially so for his coach, Haritz Mujika, who in his post-match appearance seemed especially hurt by the lost opportunity.

«I thought it was an important match, the first half hurts me because we didn’t know how to bring the match to what we had worked for and what it required. It bothers me. We had the hope of winning again at home and getting the three points. It’s painful,” admitted the Pasajes.

Fortunately or unfortunately, in modern football everything moves very quickly and the blues must wipe the slate clean to focus on the double commitment that awaits them this week. Levante and Valladolid will be the next two rivals for Amorebieta, the first in a Copa del Rey in which Urritxe’s team will debut this Wednesday after being exempt in the previous round, and the second again in the domestic competition. Although both have a common denominator, and that is that both commitments will be far from field 2 in Lezama.

Quite a challenge for Amorebieta who is already the only one in the Second Division who has not managed to win outside his fiefdom. A devastating statistic that the blues will try to break once and for all. The fact of having to debut in the Cup away from Urritxe is a small annoyance for Amorebieta, who wanted to meet again with their fans in their old stadium. For this reason, they will seek to advance to the round this Wednesday (7:00 p.m.) in a competition that, despite the team’s bad moment in the League, Haritz Mujika affirms that “it does not get in the way.” Rather the complete opposite. «It is a good opportunity for those who are not playing now to show that they also want to play. “It is good for them to vindicate themselves,” he said.

The Zornotzarras already know what it is like to face Levante this season, since the Granota team was their first opponent in the Biscayans’ re-debut in professional football. On that long-ago first day, they tied 1-1 in Lezama.

The second of the matches they must face this week, or rather in just three days, will take the blues to the José Zorrilla to face Valladolid now back in the domestic competition. A stadium of which the Amorebieta does not have particularly pleasant memories, since a couple of seasons ago they conceded a painful 5-1 there with which the Pucelanos took revenge for the 4-1 that the Zornotzarra team gave them in the first round .

In this Saturday’s match (4:15 p.m.), Amorebieta will try to recover the sensations offered in El Molinón and Martínez Valero to achieve that first league victory away from home. It so happens that this match against Valladolid corresponds to the 19th day of the competition, which is exactly the same day in which Amorebieta achieved its first and so far only visiting victory as a Silver Division team. It was that 1-2 achieved in La Rosaleda against Málaga with a double from Gorka Guruzeta.
