Liga 123 Week 36: Sporting looking to reclaim the lead

The early kick-off today pits Alcorcón, who are 16th, against 11th-placed Osasuna at the Santo Domingo stadium.  The hosts are looking to try and put daylight between themselves and the relegation-threatened teams as they sit just three points off the drop zone.  A win today would see them rise one place past Gimnàstic who held Numancia to a goalless draw yesterday.  Julio Velázquez’s side had a disappointing draw against second-bottom Lorca last week, where they scored after only two minutes but lead for just eight minutes before conceding the equaliser. …

Liga 123 Week 36: Real Zaragoza looking to bounce back

Real Zaragoza entertain Almería today, looking to put last week’s 2-1 loss to Rayo behind them.  The Zaragozans are a team with genuine promotion credentials and shot up the table thanks to a run of seven wins and a draw before they were ambushed by last-placed Sevilla Atlético four weeks ago. This seemed to knock their confidence slightly and they laboured past lowly Cultural in their next match, before edging Huesca with a score of 1-0 in each game.  Last week’s loss saw them drop out of the playoff places,…

Liga 123 Week 35: Reus end their losing run, whilst Barca B are in real trouble

In the opening contest, Reus ended a two-match losing slide and pulled off a shock in the process as they overcame fourth-placed Cádiz 1-0 at the Estadi Municipal.  Dejan Lekic’s strike five minutes into the second half was the difference.  The first half was goalless, but the Gaditanos felt they should have had a penalty as Reus captain Jesús Olmo appeared to handle a cross in his own box, although the appeals were waved away. The hosts had a claim for a penalty turned down too, early in the second…

Real Valladolid dismiss coach Luis César Sampedro

Real Valladolid have parted ways with head coach Luis César Sampedro with immediate effect, the team announced on Tuesday morning. Sampedro had been the subject of much speculation in recent months as his side struggled in the latter part of 2017, including crashing out of the cup and losing three league matches in a row as their promotion bid floundered. It looked as though he may have done enough to salvage his job to at least the end of the season when Real Valladolid claimed nine points from a possible…
