LaLiga Smartbank 2020-21 lower the blind today on a day where emotion and nerves will be the common denominator in many fields as there are several open fronts both at the top of the championship and in the queue.
And it is that the present edition of Second Division he has nothing to envy on his last day, to which the First Division lived a week ago, with many things at stake still to be decided and the emotion on the surface in a night of nerves for many fans of various teams in the Silver category.
But let’s go in parts. At the top, a lot of cloth still to be cut. Espanyol and Mallorca already tied the direct promotion several days ago, but It remains to be defined who will be the LaLiga champion. The parakeet team is first with 82 points and depends on itself to sing the alirón, as long as it wins the Alcorcón, or even tying. This assumption will occur if Mallorca, second with 81 points, does not beat Ponferradina. If Espanyol wins, it is first.
Also There are unknowns in the squad of the 4 teams that will play the promotion playoffs to First. Right now they already have the Leganés, Almería and Girona ticket, while Rayo, sixth with 67 points, and Sporting, seventh, will fight for fourth place today with 65. The Vallecanos have everything in their favor, but the Asturian team will try to knock out Almería from Ruby, who does not arrive relaxed because he wants to finish third (a challenge that Girona also has), and will wait for the puncture of the Rayo that receives Lugo.
By last, the fight to avoid descent, where there is still a lot of blood to spill. Of the four teams that go down, two are already confirmed, Albacete and Castellón. But there are still two places to be assigned, two clubs that will lose the category. And in that situation, that struggle not to go down, they are involved four sets: Sabadell. Logroñés, Lugo and Alcorcón, who play life and death matches. The one who has it worst, on paper, is the harlequin frame, with 43 points, the one with the worst figure.
The Catalan team is obliged to beat Mirandés and wait for it to occur a double carom to save himself. You need the Sabadell two of these three options occur. That Alcorcón lose to Espanyol in Santo Domingo, that Logroñés does not beat Las Palmas in Las Gaunas, or that Lugo does not win in Vallecas against a Rayo that is playing the promotion promotion. Complicated, not impossible for Sabadell.
Logroñés and Lugo have one more point than Sabadell (44), but a priori, the Riojans have a more affordable duel (Las Palmas), than the Galicians, who visit Vallecas.
From this quartet, Alcorcón, sixth from the tail with 45 points, is the one that has more overtones, a priori, to escape the descent, but a Espanyol visits him who will bite to sing the alirón. And if the results of the rivals do not favor him and he loses, Alcorcón could also rush. Everything is open.
Everything is in a fist, top and bottom, and many important things still to be decided in this last and exciting day of LaLiga Smartbank. The Second will also raise passions today.
