Real Madrid seeks to bring the runner-up of the F League closer


Real Madrid will try to take an almost definitive step towards being runner-up in the Finetwork Liga F 2022-2023 in a difficult visit to Sevilla, while Levante UD will seek to close the gap with second place in the derby against Valencia, in matches corresponding to the twenty-eighth day of the championship.

The Madrid team is in charge of opening the penultimate matchday of League F this Friday with their visit to the Jesús Navas Sports City where they will try to score three points that will ensure they maintain at least a six-point lead with just as many remaining to play.

The team coached by Alberto Toril, who will have Tere Abelleira out, lately with good harmony with the goal, has four consecutive victories, although in the last three they have had to overcome adverse results, and they will face a rival that has been playing for six games without losing and who is showing himself to be very solid defensively with only four goals conceded.

Behind, Levante UD expects a setback from Real Madrid that will allow them to close the gap on points just before having to pay a visit to Alfredo Di Stéfano next week. The second place avoids an always complex first qualifying of the Champions League and the ‘granotas’ hope to speed up their options with a victory at home against a more animated Valencia after breaking a losing streak of five consecutive defeats against Deportivo Alavés Gloriosos.

Atlético de Madrid, ranked fourth and with virtually no chance of reaching third place, will want to continue refining their set-up for the Copa de la Reina assault. The rojiblancas, with the good news of the return of Marta Cardona, will receive the needy Levante Las Planas in Alcalá de Henares, who have gone 12 games without winning.

Madrid CFF, fifth, will also have the visit of another rival from the lower half such as Alhama CF El Pozo, who is penultimate, while the bottom team, Deportivo Alavés Gloriosas, receives a dangerous UDG Tenerife. There will also be a direct duel between Villarreal and Sporting Huelva, both with 20 points, and the improved Betis will try to finalize salvation in Lezama against Athletic Club.

Finally, and although there is not much at stake, the weekend will have an always attractive duel in Zubieta between Real Sociedad and FC Barcelona, ​​already league champions and with their minds surely more focused on reaching the final of the Champions in a month. Natalia Arroyo’s team was close to scratching something positive at the Johan Cruyff and will seek to get closer to that level against a rival where Alexia Putellas will continue to gain minutes and pace of competition.
