First against third, separated by only two wins and with the direct average in play. With these incentives, the duel that Covirán Granada and Río Breogán will play on Saturday afternoon will become the epicenter of a weekend in which the group’s direct duels for promotion will fight for a series of triumphs with which consolidate your goals for the final Playoffs.

With the Son Moix court as the starting point, the LEB Gold League will begin its countdown this weekend with vibrant duels in which the stakes will be high. In that of the Balearic Islands, a victory that, if he stayed at home, would end up certifying the Balearic team’s classification for the Playoffs due to promotion and that, in case of heading to Galician lands, would allow Leyma Coruña to send a a good dose of pressure on the category leader ahead of his game on Saturday. Although this will not be the only incentive of a Friday night in which we will experience an authentic train crash in the Ciutat de Castelló with the visit of a Palencia Destination more than forced to win if it wants to be able to qualify for a position in a final phase of the one that they could get to say goodbye in case of not breaking their streak of four negative losses. Something that will try to prevent a TAU Castelló willing to certify the great goal with a victory in front of their fans.
Already on Saturday afternoon we will experience the great duel of the day with the visit of the leader to Granada, a Río Breogán that recovered its advantage of two victories at the top of the table last weekend after beating TAU Castelló at home. In this way, those of Diego Epifanio were able to take a new step forward that they will now try to ratify on a complicated track to be able to leave the first place practically seen for sentencing. Of course, it will not be easy since, on the other side of the track, they will find a Covirán Granada willing to recover its positive dynamics to cut differences with the leader of the category.
And already on Sunday morning, the Group for promotion will play its last match of the weekend with the arrival in Pumarín of one of the most dangerous teams in the category, an HLA Alicante already settled in Playoff positions and in search of the that could be the final step. To do this, Pedro Rivero’s men will have to beat a rocky Liberbank Oviedo for which the match has an “important” vitola since it could lead to the mathematical classification for the Playoffs due to promotion.
On the opposite side of the competition, the fight for permanence begins to exhaust its opportunities for teams in jeopardy. Especially for a Tizona University of Burgos that will travel on Friday night to the track of an already descended ZTE Real Canoe and with the sole objective of being able to add positively. And it is that, any other result, would significantly complicate the future in the category of a Burgos team without margin of error. No less important will be the match in the capital of Huesca where a victory for Melilla Sport Capital could complicate the life of its rival, a Levitec Huesca that, on the contrary, could take a notable step forward in the event of victory complicating life for the Melilla.
And, with the ICG Força Lleida forced to postpone their match due to two positives at Ibereólica Ourense and the leader Bàsquet Girona facing his rest day, Cáceres P. Humanity’s match on the Real Murcia court will be key for Roberto Blanco’s who, in case of victory, could leave their objective virtually assured while waiting for the last three days.
