MATCHDAY 04: DEPOR IN RELEGATION

11 Sep 2019
Cádiz CF is the only team with a perfect mark after four matchdays. Meanwhile, Deportivo are in relegation as it’s one of the two teams with three defeats.

It has been the matchday with the lowest number of goals until now (20), only two teams scored two or more goals and Cádiz CF is now the only team with a perfect mark. The Andalusians have suffered though, because they are clinching the results in the added time.

In this opportunity they were visiting Racing Santander and were leading 0-1, then the Cantabrians scored at minute 85 in a penalty that needed the VAR, and Cádiz won the game at minute 101 thanks to a new penalty conceded by the VAR.

More convincing was the victory of Real Zaragoza, side that trashed AD Alcorcón at Santo Domingo (0-3), now Los Maños are second, tied in points with UD Almeria and CF Fuenlabrada. The Andalusians won visiting Málaga CF (0-1), while FC Fuenlabrada continued with its impressive start, this time they rescued a point at minute 89 hosting SD Ponferradina after been trailing the whole second half (1-1).

SD Huesca jumped into the promotion zone after an important 1-0 victory over Sporting Gijón. Same thing than Girona FC, side that defeated Rayo Vallecano at home (3-1). Albacete Balompié climbed some positions after an unexpected 0-1 win at the Riazor facing Deportivo.

The situation at the top of the standings:

place team points GF GA
1 Cádiz 12 9 4
2 Zaragoza 10 7 1
3 Almeria 10 6 1
4 Fuenlabrada 10 7 3
5 Huesca 9 5 2
6 Girona 7 5 3
7 Alcorcón 6 6 7
8 Albacete 6 2 5

Precisely, the defeat of Depor means the third on the season and now the Galicians are in relegation, it’s the first time since November of 1988 in which Los Blanquiazules are in relegation at Segunda División. The other side that has lost three games is Real Oviedo, they spent the major part of the game tied with CD Mirandés, but once again conceded a late goal and ended losing (2-1).

Extremadura UD is another team with a poor start, they are one of the five outfits that haven’t won so far, in this matchday they could only get a goalless draw hosting CD Numancia. Same result had in the Canarian derby between CD Tenerife and UD Las Palmas. The matchday was completed with the 1-1 draw between Elche CF and CD Lugo.

The situation at the bottom of the standings:

place team points GF GA
18 Lugo 3 4 6
19 Deportivo 3 5 9
20 Racing 2 4 6
21 Extremadura 2 2 4
22 Oviedo 1 5 8

THREE MATCHDAYS IN ONE WEEK
Intense week ahead as matchdays 5, 6 and 7 are going to be played in a frame of ten days. Cádiz hosting Girona FC and Sporting Gijón doing the same with Deportivo are the most interesting games in matchday 5. Then, in midweek, Depor are hosting CD Numancia, and on the following weekend the Galicians face a tough challenge visiting leaders Cádiz CF.
