Castilla go into another Liga Adelante game, this time against Racing de Santander at the El Sardinero stadium (5pm, Marca TV). Toril's men take a good run of five matches unbeaten into the game and the players are hoping to prolong the run. “We are now more relaxed than before as we are 11 points off the drop zone. We hope to pick up as many wins on the bounce as possible and we are going to savour each game so that we can enjoy this amazing division“, explained Borja in the run up to the game. The Real Madrid forward Óscar Plano added: “Our aim is safety but this team have the ability to climb up the table and we will attempt to make the top eight”.
The Whites are enjoying a good season thanks to their goal scoring exploits and they have already recorded the best goal scoring campaign of Castilla in their history in the Segunda División. “We carry quite a potent attacking threat. This is coupled with the fact that Jesé has scored so many goals and that he has had a great season, plus the contributions of Morata… Everyone has contributed in actual fact. In defence, we have established a solidity that we were lacking at the start and we have secured our safety as the team have gelled and worked well" said the winger about the impressive statistics of the team. This was also praised by Óscar Plano: “There are five games left and we hope we can score many more goals. This team have the ability to do that because we have great players going forward like Jesé, Juanfran or Denis, who are scoring goals. Let's hope that in these five games they keep on finding the net and we can help them out".
The opponents in the next league game are currently in the drop zone and will be looking to get out of trouble in the final few games, which is why the players know it won't be an easy game. Borja analysed the game against Racing: “They will have to go for the win in every game and pick up three points as draws are no good for them. We have to continue playing as have been doing up to now and play a bit on their anxiety, which can be key". The Whites' forward talked about how motivated they are for this game: “They are a team that have been in the Primera División for many years and we are motivated to go there and win, because it is an objective which is in our hands”.
