Adrián Colunga could make bench return against Real Betis

Getafe's star striker Adrián Colunga has trained normally after overcoming an Achilles tendon injury and is in the provisional squad to face Real Betis in the Copa del Rey on Thursday.

However, coach Míchel has stated that the forward will not start the match, but instead may play from the bench.

"Adrián has completed his first training session, but under no circumstances will he be a starter," he told Marca.

Pedro Ríos, stricken with a stomach bug, is also in the 22-man list but is very unlikely to play.

Only central defender Mario, out long-term with a tendon injury. He is due to return around March.

Getafe are 2-1 up on aggregate against Real Betis, with the second leg taking place at the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez on Thursday at 12:00 local time.
