Sebastian Gonzalez, who partners Abel Barriola in the ongoing pairs championship will be forced to sit out his next scheduled match against reigning champions Aimar Olaizola and Oier Mendizabal on Saturday. Aspe report that the defender from Lapurdi is suffering from bursitis in his right knee and must undergo treatment involing antibiotics, anti-inflammatories and a compression bandage. His place in the match in Iscar will be taken by 22 year old Mikel Olazabal. This is surely a blow for the Aspe pair who have thus far taken three wins from three games and have been in scintillating form. Gonzalez has been far superior to his rivals in each of these encounters and has worked in excellent harmony with Barriola, who must now pull out all the stops as he attempts to continue their fine run with a new partner. Olazabal for his part must find a way to outwit Cuatro y Medio champion Aimar Olaizola.
