Day 35 of the League | Schedules, match results and summary | Sports

This weekend the 35th day of the League will take place. The championship enters his sprint final with the title decided mathematically for Barcelona, ​​which is measured at home on Saturday against Real Sociedad. The people from San Sebastian are fourth and have an important advantage of five points against Villarreal to accompany the Catalans, Real Madrid and Atlético de Madrid in the next edition of the Champions League. The most exciting part of the table is the lower part. Celta, Valencia, Cádiz, Almería, Valladolid, Getafe and Espanyol fight to avoid the two remaining relegation places, once Elche is already a second team. The Valencianistas receive Real Madrid on Sunday. Another attraction of the day is the always hot Sevillian derby. Sevilla closes the day hosting Betis after their European tie against Juventus.

These are the matches of the day:

Cádiz – Valladolid (Friday 19, 9:00 p.m. Movistar LaLiga and GOL)

Santander League working day 35

Cádiz and Valladolid, tied at 35 points, face each other in a dog-faced duel for permanence. Despite the fact that the people from Cádiz have just suffered two consecutive defeats, they are still out of relegation and have to use their strong point (home games) to tie themselves to the first division. Worse still is the streak of Valladolid, who seemed to escape burning with the change of coach, but who is now fully involved in the fight after four straight defeats. He golaverage Particular begins to be important at this point and Cádiz has the advantage of having won (0-1) in the first round at the José Zorrilla.

Girona – Villarreal (Saturday 20, 2:00 p.m. Movistar LaLiga)

Santander League working day 35

Girona is right now in European positions, something that seemed unthinkable a few months ago. The Catalan team occupies the place in the Conference League after a spectacular second round and will face Villarreal this Saturday, which is speeding up its chances of reaching fourth place in Real Sociedad. The yellows are five points behind the San Sebastian team, but they arrive in good form for the last days: Setién’s team has ten of the last 12 points at stake and comes from beating Athletic (5-1). Girona also has 10 of 12, which garnered a creditable draw at Anoeta last week.

Athletic – Celta (Saturday 20, 4:15 p.m. Dazn)

Santander League working day 35Previous

Neither Athletic nor Celta arrive at this match at their best. The Basque team is in its worst run of the course and with four games without winning it has said almost goodbye to the Europa League and it has been difficult to enter the Conference. Valverde’s men need to react to be in Europe next season and they are facing a Celta that has only been able to beat bottom club Elche in the last eight rounds. The Galicians already see the descent to only five points and could get into trouble if they do not start to add some victory.

Almería – Mallorca (Saturday 20, 6:30 p.m. Movistar LaLiga)

Santander League working day 35Previous

Almería clings to the fort of their stadium (where they add 29 of their 36 points in the League) to fight another final for permanence. The Indálico team begins the date two points above relegation and has a good opportunity on Saturday against a Mallorca that only plays for honor. The Balearic Islands sealed a much more comfortable stay than expected last week and they have taken the measure of Almería, whom they have beaten in their last four matches.

Getafe – Elche (Saturday 20, 6:30 p.m. Dazn)

Santander League working day 35

Getafe, in relegation places, has a crucial game against Elche in their fiefdom. Bordalás, urgently called by Ángel Torres to save the team, cannot fail against the already relegated bottom team if he wants to get Getafe to escape the burning. After the arrival of the coach from Alicante, the Madrid team accumulated a victory at home and two defeats at home. In front of them they will have an Elche that is not being a troupe despite not risking anything and that last week defeated an entire Atlético de Madrid.

Barcelona – Real Sociedad (Saturday 20, 9:00 p.m. Dazn)

Santander League working day 35

A Barça already champion welcomes Real Sociedad at the Camp Nou. After singing the alirón in the Espanyol field, Xavi’s team only has to continue expanding their records. If they win the four games that remain, they will reach 97 points, figures that have not been seen in the League for a long time. But the one who really has something at stake in this match is Real Sociedad, who need to keep their advantage over Villarreal to be in the next Champions League. Of course, Barça is not the favorite rival of Imanol’s men, who have gone 17 games without defeating the Catalans (since a 1-0 victory in April 2016).

Rayo Vallecano – Espanyol (Sunday 21, 2:00 p.m. Dazn)

Espanyol was very touched after losing to Barça in the derby, although the four points they have with respect to permanence are still a salvageable distance. Luis García’s team needs a change of dynamics, which has only added one victory since his arrival on the parakeet bench. They visit a Rayo team that still has options to play in the Conference League despite its irregularity in the second round. Iraola’s men will not be an easy opponent, especially at home, where they have accumulated two consecutive wins against Barça and Valladolid.

Atlético de Madrid – Osasuna (Sunday 21, 4:15 p.m. Movistar LaLiga)

Atlético de Madrid lost second place in the League by surprise to Real Madrid after losing to bottom club Elche. It was a blur to an almost faultless second round of Simeone’s men, but that coincides with his elimination from the rest of the competitions. The rojiblancos are looking to rediscover their victory at home against Osasuna, who consoled themselves for their defeat in the Cup final by giving their fans a victory (3-1) against Almería. Atlético’s run at home is impeccable: seven wins in a row and 21 goals scored.

Valencia – Real Madrid (Sunday 21, 6:30 p.m. Movistar LaLiga)

Real Madrid visits the Mestalla, a traditionally hostile venue for them, after being thrashed and eliminated in the Champions League by Guardiola’s City. With second place in the league as the only competitive incentive, Ancelotti’s men will try to clean up their image after the European bump. They face a Valencia that is playing for permanence and that has taken a three-point margin after achieving a vital victory in Vigo. That income is still insufficient to avoid relegation to the second division, but a win against Madrid would mean a giant step forward in terms of sport and spirit.

Seville – Betis (Sunday 21, 9:00 p.m. Dazn)

The day closes on Sunday with one of the best derbies in Spain: the Sevillian one. Betis comes above in the standings and is very close to closing its access to the Europa League for another year, but Sevilla is not the team that flirted with relegation in the first round. The reaction of the Andalusians with the arrival of Mendilibar has given him options to fight for the Conference League. Sevilla has little rest, as they played the Europa League semifinal round against Juventus last Thursday, although they have four consecutive victories against Betis in the Pizjuán derbies. To go back to the last Betic triumph, you have to go to 2018 (a resounding 3-5).
