The surreal twelfth day of Primera RFEF closed its doors with the spotlight on the game that, precisely, was not played. The Extremadura, just as I had announced, did not show up at Riazor so the encounter Deportivo will be awarded 3-0 by default of the rival. Extremadura’s squad exercised their right to strike after six months without being paid and they will be subtracted three points in the standings, which is now the third to last with 9 points. If those from Almendralejo do not appear for a second game, they would be excluded from the league.
This decision of the Extremadura players has caused Deportivo add the three points and strengthen its leadership position solo of Group I with 26 points in his locker. The decision will be effective when the Competition Committee meets. Borja Jiménez’s advantage will be three points over three teams that add 23 as main pursuers: Racing de Santander, Rayo Majadahonda and UD Logroñés.
Visit to Rayo Majadahonda
The next day can be used to expand or adjust the upper part more of the classification. Deportivo will visit Rayo Majadahonda, who won on Saturday in the derby against the Doge (2-4), in a match at the top that will face first and third. The Unionistas-Badajoz will be another outstanding duel in the group of pursuers. While Racing de Santander will visit Zamora, penultimate in the table, and UD Logroñés plays away against Tudelano, last.
