Some controversy with one of the new rules at the start of the season, Modric and Jorge Molina getting sent off by Estrada Fernández and Cuarda Fernández on the opening weekend for clipping the heels of opponents in late tackles. Last year that would just have been a yellow, but this season this is a red card offence. Referees need to be consistent on this though, as a similar tackle by Real Sociedad’s Januzaj remained unpunished by Gil Manzano.
Two new faces this season, Soto Grado and Pizarro Gómez replacing Undiano Mallenco and Iglesias Villanueva, the former reaching the statutory retirement age, and the latter relegated to the second division . (02.09.19)
