This is the struggle for Europe with two days to go

Getafe, Valencia and Sevilla have been guaranteed to finish the season among the top seven, but there is still a lot at stake.


The thing starts to take shape at the top of the table: Alavés defeat against Real Sociedad and Valencia victory in Huesca have guaranteed that Valencia, Getafe and Sevilla finish among the top seven classified and secure a position in Europe for the next season. There is one job left but all are still pending from Valencia: if it were corona Copa del Rey champion, it would go straight to the Europa League and another team would be the one that would have to access the previous rounds. In this case the seventh classified, which in this case is Athletic. Teams like Betis, who previously dreamed of qualifying, practically say goodbye to their options while others like Leganes have more options.

Getafe: 4th with 58 points.

Remains: Barcelona out and Villarreal at home.

What to write of the Getafe that has not been written. With, at least, the seventh place in the pocket, the Bordalás have quite on track the classification to the Champions League after his victory against Girona and the puncture of Sevilla against Leganes. La won goalaveraje to all the rivals with which it competes with the exception of Valencia. In the first round lost to Barcelona and won at Villarreal, although the Blaugranas are already more aware of other struggles and the Castellon are playing life in the next weeks.

Valencia: 5th with 55 points

Le are left: Alavés at home and Valladolid outside.

These are the most open fronts have to reach the Champions League or the Europa League directly, but can not let go of the accelerator either. The best: they have won the goalaveraje to Getafe, Sevilla and Ahtletic, their three main competitors. Down they win it to the Real Sociedad, but they lose it before Eibar and Espanyol and they have left to gamble it before Alavés, that won them 2 to 1 on the way. On the last day they will face a Valladolid who is still fighting for permanence.

Sevilla: 6th with 55 points.

Remains: Atlético de Madrid out and Athletic de Bilbao out.

Second consecutive setback and the Champions increasingly farther. Of course, they put the fifteenth European ranking of the last sixteen possible. It has lost the goalaveraje against those rivals who can still give chase, ie, against Valencia and Athletic. También has it lost with Getafe. In the first round tied against Atletico and lost in San Mamés. He has lost three of his last four games.

Athletic Bilbao: 7th with 50 points.

Remains: Celta at home and Sevilla outside.

Han lost a great opportunity to get close to the top after his trip to Pucela. must still play the goalaveraje against Sevilla, who won 2 to 0 in the first leg, and have lost against their other two rivals for the highest positions: Getafe and Valencia. Down has won it to Eibar and Leganés, depends on the general against Alavés and has lost against Real Sociedad and Espanyol. Their two next games ended with a happy ending in the first round, so, whenever the next day the results are good and they beat them in the last one, could beat Sevilla in the table.

Real Sociedad: 8th with 47 points

Remain: Real Madrid at home and Espanyol outside

What have changed things in such a short time for txuri-urdin. It can reach seventh place , its only option to qualify for European competition, and it has won the goalaveraje Athletic, which leads them in three points. In addition, loses only goalaveraje against Eibar, depends on the general against Alavés, is he wins at Leganés and he has to play against Espanyol, who won 3-2 in the first round. In the previous game against Real Madrid added three points that today would be decisive for their European aspirations.

Espanyol: 9th with 47 points

Le remain: Leganés out and Real Sociedad at home.

Se play it against two direct rivals and su streak is quite good: they have not lost since eight days ago they chained two defeats against Barcelona and Sevilla and remained unbeaten throughout February. They also have their goalaveraje in play: for the moment, they win 1 to 0 to Leganés and lose it 3 to 2 against the Real. Of the rest se win it to Athletic, they depend on the general against Alavés and they have lost against Eibar.

Alavés: 10º with 47 points

Le are left: Valencia out and Girona at home.

111111 Without knowing the victory since mid-March, or what is the same, since eight days ago, there are not many indications to think that the Vitorians could overcome in the final straight of the championship. In any case, the goalaveraje does not facilitate the classification to Europe: it will depend on the general against Athletic, Real and Espanyol and has lost against Eibar and Leganés. All in all, the results of the first round are favorable to Abelardo's set: vencio in the visit of Valencia to Mendizorroza and took a point in his trip to Montilivi.

Eibar: 11th with 46 points

Le are left: Villarreal outside and Barcelona at home.

No is the goal of eibarreses, but the possibility is there. Of course, would be a great and deserved reward for the work done by Mendilibar and his players in recent seasons. To get enough points to reach the seventh position, goalaverajes play in their favor: they win against all rivals They fight for that place except for Athletic. In the first round tied against Villarreal and lost against Barcelona.

Leganés: 12th with 45 points

Le are left: Espanyol at home and Huesca out.

Otra season more than worthy of the set pepinero and of Manuel Pellegrino, who already had another great season at the helm of Alavés and who now had the challenge of supplying Asier Garitano. That the Leganés have mathematical options to reach the seventh position with two days left is already enough reason to applaud the great campaign of the team from the south of Madrid. He has it difficult, because only has won the goalaveraje to Alavés and has to overcome the 1 to 0 of the first leg against Espanyol.
