The league SmartBank enters the decisive phase of its 2020-21 season with the dispute of the 39th day. With Espanyol already promoted, Mallorca is the next to complete its return to First Division, while Almeria try to avoid it. This weekend, both play at home against teams involved in the fight for permanence, Albacete and Alcorcón respectively.
Regarding the playoff spots, the direct duel between Girona and Sporting is presented as the most outstanding match, while Rayo visits Fuenlabrada in the Madrid derby and Leganés receives Logroñés, another of those involved in the fight in the lower zone.
Lugo-Mirandés, Castellón-Ponferradina, Sabadell-Tenerife, Espanyol-Cartagena and Las Palmas-Zaragoza will also have importance in the fight for salvation, while the Oviedo-Malaga introduces himself as the quiet duel of the day.
Malaga – Mallorca (1-1)
The Malaga and the Majorca they equaled one goal, in an even match, in which the Malaguistas took advantage of a penalty reviewed by the VAR; and the Mallorcan players from a Lago Junior goal, to maintain a six-point “cushion” that separates, in the absence of four days, the direct promotion to the First Division of Spanish football from the “play off” area.
Zaragoza – Espanyol (0-0)
The Spanish, after the point achieved at the La Romareda stadium against the Real Zaragoza, is already a team in the First Division of Spanish football, after a goalless draw that the locals considered good, but it is not so good because, although it means adding against the best team in the category, it could imply that, again, look at the gates of descent.
Rayo – Leganés (1-1)
Lightning Y Leganes They tied (1-1) this Monday in Vallecas in a duel in which the visiting team went ahead with a goal from Miguel de la Fuente and that Argentine Oscar Trejo equalized in the second half of a penalty to add a point that is not worth them to return to the promotion positions in which his rival remains.
