Artola occupied the 19th position in the ranking of the minutes of Burgos


Juan Artola He plays on loan from Athletic in Burgos in the Second Division, but so far the forward has not had a minute as a footballer himself and those who manage Lezama want to train in a professional category before returning to Bilbao to fight for a place in first team.

The man from Bilbao is the nineteenth football player of the team led by Julian Calero in the minutes ranking, with 591 after participating in 17 of the 20 SmartBank League games consumed in the early part of the course. There are only four football players who have played less.

The striker played six games as a starter. He started the season from the start in the matches against Málaga and Albacete and was later among those selected against Cartagena (fourth day), Villarreal B (8th) and Alavés (9th). He spent nine games without starting (in the one he lost, against Tenerife, he was suspended after being sent off in the previous meeting against Las Palmas) and he regained possession on Sunday to visit Granada, a game that ended in a 1 -0 loss.

Two goals

The man from Bilbao scored two goals, the one worth adding to the victory on the first day against the team of La Rosaleda (1-0) and the last 2-0 against Ibiza coming from the bench.

Juan Artola debuted as a lion last season in the first Cup tie against Atlético Mancha Real which ended in a rojiblanco victory, 0-2 thanks to a double scored by Nico Williams. Marcelino made his debut in the second half as a substitute Raul Garcia. The player who wears the number 7 in the El Plantío team spent three seasons at Bilbao Athletic before leaving on loan. In the 2019–20 campaign, he played 26 games in Second B, the same number as the following year. Last season, he played 34 in the First Federation, first in Imanol de la Sota as a coach and later with Patxi Salinas to achieve permanence.

Burgos also plays another footballer with a past at the Lezama youth academy, Jesus Ares. The right-back was parted ways with Bilbao Athletic after refusing to renew. He signed for Osasuna and made his debut in the first team coached by Jagoba Arrasate, but this season he was also transferred to the Castilian club. He played a little more than Artola, 810 minutes, fifteenth in the ranking.
