The penultimate day of LaLiga Smartbank It is played in its entirety on Monday in a unified schedule at 9:00 p.m.. With everything to be decided, with the exception of the two direct promotion places to the First Division that already have the names of Espanyol and Mallorca, this typical ‘transistor day’ will put the hearts of more than one fan to the test.
Above, equality is maximum: five teams compete for four playoff spots and three of them are tied on points. Leganes, Almeria Y Girona They have 67 points, but they cannot be calm because from behind come the Sporting de Gijón and the Vallecano Ray with 64. The Asturians close the promotion positions due to the goal difference with the Madrid team. Thus, everyone is obliged to win: the Leganes at home against Malaga; the Almeria in his field against Logroñés; the Girona in Montilivi before the Alcorcón; the Sporting visit to Fuenlabrada; and the Vallecano Ray goes to Castellón. that the season is played.
Below, there is six teams for four unattractive relegation places. The Albacete, bottom, no longer has options to stay in the silver category of Spanish football, but will try to save the honor against Las Palmas. Then, with 40 points, there is the Sabadell, that the worst is feared, as shown by the tears of his footballers after falling this week in Alcorcón. His options go through winning Ponferradina at home. In front of the Catalans are Castellon Y Lugo, both with 41 points. While the Valencians are in the middle of the fight for the ‘playoff’, the Galicians host Cartagena. Easier they have it, the Logroñés (44 points) and the Alcorcón (45), although their duels against the teams above make them fear that they will have to keep sweating until the last day.
