A question of resistance

“The Second Spanish is one of the most even leagues that exists” is a phrase that is repeated in each previous summer of the silver category, but this season it is being seen, perhaps, in its full expression. With only three days to play, of the top eight classified only Tenerife, With the playoff very close and direct promotion almost impossible, breathe easy.

In the cima of the classification, Almería, Eibar and Valladolid fight to go up to First Division without going through the promotion phase. a fight of three giants that could vary with each passing day and in which nothing is clear.

Los indalics leadsince last day, the classification with 76 points with a great streak of four wins and a draw in the last five games. Those of Rubi left behind the irregularity of previous campaigns and seem determined to ascend by direct means. The gunsmiths, for their part, with 74 points in their locker, have seen how the last defeat against the Pucelanos (0-2) displaced them from that first place and sowed the fear of falling to promotion. Happens that Eibar seems to be suffering from ‘altitude sickness’ with two wins, two losses and a draw in the last month. The Valladolid He made up for the skid against Real Sociedad B two days ago with a great victory in Ipurua. A win that puts second place just two points away and feed the hopes of return to First without having to play in June.

Celebration of the last victory of Las Palmas.

And if in the noble part of the classification the situation is difficult, more complicated it is for the last two tickets for the playoff. Girona, fifth classified and with 64 points; Oviedo, sixth classified and with same points that the people of Girona; Ponferradina, seventh classified and with 63 points, and Las Palmas, eighth classified and with 61 points, they live each day as if it were a final to play that long-awaited promotion to First Division. A long-distance race where, paradoxically, the ‘leader’ Girona is worse off having added only six points out of the last fifteen possible. By contrast, Oviedo has added thirteen; Ponferradina, twelve and Las Palmas, eleven.

Question of substance and faith

Without direct duels in each war, everything seems to indicate that the capable teams from lengthensr its great streaks until day 42 they will take the joy of the objective achieved. A matter of physical and mental resistance.
