Nobody wants to accompany Espanyol and Elche in Second, but it is certain that one of those involved will fall into the well. Everything will be decided this Sunday from 9:00 p.m. CET and there will be many emotions that will be experienced in different parts of the national geography.
Three teams will be relegated and Real Valladolid is currently in the danger zone, in 18th place, one point behind Celta de Vigo and Almería, who have 40, while Valencia, Getafe and Cádiz have 41 and continue to sweat for their survival. .
The six know that if they win on Sunday, they will survive.and the visit of the azulón team to José Zorrilla is the only game in which two of the protagonists face each other, hence it is the key meeting.
If Getafe wins in Pucela, they can save themselves and four other teams, condemning the group led by the Brazilian Ronaldo to relegation.
The fight could have been even more close if Valencia had not drawn last weekend at home against Espanyol, relegating the Catalan team to the relegation places.
It should be remembered that the first tiebreaker criterion is the direct confrontation, and the second, the goal difference.
In case there are more than two tied teams, a mini-table based on the results of their head-to-heads will decide their positions.
Cádiz, thirteenth, is the team that is most in danger (in relation to the above), and a single point in their visit to relegated Elche would ensure their permanence, like Getafe in Valladolid and Valencia in their commitment against Real Betis.
The season for the Turia team has been abysmal, and the six-time champions are doomed to their worst ranking since they were promoted to the top flight in 1988.
“We have to focus on the game and on ourselves, and go to Seville to play a good game to seal our permanence “, declared Rubén Baraja.
Almería will visit Espanyol, already relegated, knowing that a draw will be enough to save them, since they have a full record of victories against Getafe.
Celta de Vigo, seventeenth, have gone six league games without winning and have suffered seven defeats in their last nine games.
The Galicians face the champion, Barcelona, who they hope will be relaxed and with their minds set on the summer break after winning the title and saying goodbye with emotion at the Camp Nou last weekend.
Not even a draw against Barça is enough to guarantee permanence, which is why victory is necessary so as not to depend on what happens in other fields.
Celta announced on Wednesday that they will open a stand that has been closed for renovations all season with the aim of filling Balaídos and turning their luck around.
“The only positive thing is that we finished the season at home and it’s up to us to win our stay“said Carlos Carvalhal after the painful defeat last weekend against Cádiz (1-0).
Valladolid are also hungry for three points, and could even survive if they draw against Getafe, as long as Almería lose and Celta score at least one point.
The fight for relegation in LaLiga, without a doubt, is very close.
Cyle Larin, player to watch
