In Almendralejo they throw numbers. The defeat suffered by Extremadura UD against Zaragoza, has left the Extremadura team in a very complicated situation and far from the goal that was set at the beginning of the season, and which was none other than that of a new salvation. With part of the 35th day still to be disputed, the Extremadurans occupy the penultimate position with 33 points. For them there are already 7 games and therefore 21 points at stake.
It is difficult at this point to put numbers to salvation. And it is not worth doing a review of what happened in recent seasons. To highlight something, Osasuna marked salvation in the 14/15 season with 45 points, while Alcorcón needed 50 to get it on 16/17. Last season Lugo stayed in the category thanks to its 47 points, and in the previous season, 17/18, Almería achieved it with 48 points. The current campaign therefore has more than 20 points to play, and if we take into account the rhythm of points that the teams have scored after the return of football, the feeling is that salvation could be the most expensive in recent campaigns .
The cabals are therefore for the fans, and not for a team that prefers to focus on the next game and see everything different, getting a victory on Sunday in Fuenlabrada. More or less in line with his coach, Manuel Mosquera, who after the defeat against Real Zaragoza revealed what he said to his people in the dressing room. “I have told the players that we have seven games ahead, and that if we win them we will achieve the goal of saving. That is a reality. We cannot give up now. There are two ways today: Being with us, trusting and supporting us, and the other, easier way, giving, lowering our arms, and not continuing with us. “
