if it does three weeks over the regular phase in Tercera RFEFthis weekend it’s his turn shift to the second federation draw the curtain on the season. The fourth category of national football already has determined the five teams that go up the category directly, that is, the five group champions. Namely, Arenteiro, Sestao River, Teruel, Antequera and UD Melilla. However, there is still pending issues to be resolved. The playoff and the playout are the main objectives to be resolved in this last day. Then, the promotion matches for promotion and permanence will arrive.
The modest Arenteiro has lived the best season in its history: it eliminated Almería and competed against Atlético de Madrid in the Copa del Rey and has achieved its first promotion to the First RFEF. And he has achieved it directly. Along with O Carballiño’s team, Real Avilés, Real Valladolid Promesas, SD Compostela and Guijuelo could also go up, the teams that are currently in the playoffs. The first two already have it for sure, but the other two will still have to confirm it this last date, because Zamora and Gimnástica de Torrelavega still have options. Below, Bergantiños, Burgos CF Promesas, Polvorín and CD Laredo have already fallen. Between Coruxo, Langreo, Ourense CF and Palencia Cristo Atlético, the last relegation position and the playout position will be decided.
play off: Real Avilés, Real Valladolid Promises, SD Compostela and Guijuelo
Playout: Ourense CF
Decline: Palencia Cristo Atlético, CD Laredo, Polvorín, Burgos CF Promises and Bergantiños
The historic Sestao River returns to the third national category six years later. The last season was 16-17, then in Second B. The Biscayans have had a walk this season (only two defeats) and have achieved a well-deserved promotion. In the playoff, the Alavés subsidiary and Tarazona are sure to dispute it. Tudelano and Utebo will still have to sweat to confirm it. Gernika, Real Sociedad C, AD San Juan and the mythical Arenas de Getxo (Cup champion in 1919) are on the lookout. That remains to be decided and the playout, where Beasain and Cirbonero play the last bullet for salvation. At the moment the team from Pamplona would be relegated together with Racing Rioja, Alfaro, UD Logroñés B and Arnedo.
Ascent: Sestao River
Play off: Deportivo Alavés B, Tarazona, Tudelano and Utebo
Decline: Cirbonero, Racing Rioja, CD Alfaro, UD Logroñés B and Arnedo
Teruel also exists. And so much that it exists. In fact, next season its most representative team will play in the RFEF Primera thanks to finishing group champion. Peña Deportiva, Valencia Mestalla, Espanyol B and CE Manresa could accompany him if they succeed in the promotion phase, which have already confirmed their presence. Regarding relegation, the five clubs that will play in Tercera RFEF next year have been decided: AE Prat, Olot, Ibiza-Islas Pitiusas, Mallorca B and CD Ebro. Thus, the only thing that remains to be confirmed in this league is the playout. Between Badalona, Lleida, SD Formentera, Deportivo Aragón and Alzira the chosen one will come out.
Play off: Peña Deportiva, Valencia Mestalla, Espanyol B and CE Manresa
Playout: UD Alzira
Decline: AE Prat, Olot, Ibiza-Pitiusas Islands, Mallorca B and CD Ebro
Antequera’s magnificent season has ended on the rise. The team from Malaga, refounded in 1992, once again reached the highest level in its history, equaling the 08-09 campaign in which it played in Second B. It has surpassed Recreativo de Huelva, the Dean of Spanish football, which will have to settle for with the playoffs. Recreativo Granada and Atlético Sanluqueño will also play the promotion. The last place in contention is disputed this weekend between UCAM Murcia and Yeclano. In the lower zone, the El Ejido Sports Center still has an option to save itself if it reaches the playout that, for the moment, belongs to Vélez CF. The Mar Menor, apparently saved, could still play the playout (there is still the possibility) and lose in the playoffs. Xerez Deportivo, Juventud Torremolinos, Mancha Real and Utrera are doomed.
Play off: Recreativo de Huelva, Recreativo Granada, Atlético Sanluqueño and UCAM Murcia
Playout: Velez CF
Decline: Sports Center El Ejido, Xerez Deportivo, Youth Torremolinos, Mancha Real and Utrera
Surprise in Group V. Atlético de Madrid will play for promotion in the playoffs. The reason, that UD Melilla has been first and is promoted directly. Navalcarnero and Cacereño will accompany him in the promotion, while Villanovense, Gimnástica Segoviana and Estepona are playing for the vacant place. In the lower zone, although equality has prevailed all year, in the end time has put everyone in their place. Leganés B, Alcorcón B, Diocesano, Yugo Socuéllamos and Don Benito descend; Atlético Paso, Montijo, Cerdanyola and CD Coria will play the playout in the last 90 minutes of the league.
Ascent: UD Melilla
