Change of year and first away win of the season

Las Palmas finally makes its debut as a visitor in the league after a creditable triumph in Mallorca that brings them closer to the playoff spots.


It's over. They have had to spend no more and no less than 21 league games, 11 of them away from home, for UD Las Palmas to see the end of a long streak that seemed to have no end far from the Gran Canaria Stadium. The yellows achieved this Sunday, in their trip to the Visit Mallorca Estadi, their first victory away from their fiefdom, thanks to a goal by Sergio Araujo in the 20th minute, which helps Mel's team go to the next 15-day league break with good feelings after beating the second co-leaders Espanyol and Mallorca in a week.

This premiere as a visitor in their first trip of the year is a great encouragement for Mel's, since it coincides precisely with the end of a first round that is not positive for the yellow interests away from Gran Canaria, where to date they had only achieved six draws against Zaragoza (3-3), Málaga (0-0), Albacete (1-1), Girona (1-1), Lugo (1-1) and Ponferradina (0-0); and harvested four defeats against Leganés (1-0), Cartagena (3-0), Sabadell (3-1) and Rayo Vallecano (2-0) .

In this way, it is clear that the insular baggage was very poor with only six points in the pocket in their outings compared to the 20 that have been achieved so far at home, but, thanks to this last victory before starting the second half of the championship, makes the Gran Canaria able to take the weight off of having been until this day the only team in the category that remained without achieving victory at home and, at the same time, achieves that with the 29 points reflected in the classification the goal of permanence is a little closer, although for Mel "it does not mean much, it means that we are on the goal that is not to have trouble in the last month. This competition is very tough, we just have to look to the next game. When you want to stay calm and when you lose, the same. "

Now the competition will be affected by a 15-day break, until the weekend of January 23-24, where the yellows will face another of the strongest teams in the category such as Leganés.

Last away victory

The importance of this victory away from Gran Canaria is such that it is necessary to go back to June 17, 2020, on matchday 33 of last season, to remember the last foreign yellow victory, which was in Almería with a goal from Rubén Castro, being the only one of the entire year 2020 in 21 games.
