So there are just 2 weeks left in the inaugural FFS UEFA League season and things are tense right across Europe as manager’s plan for their season finish, as well as preparing for the inevitable Christmas rotation and the start of the FPL cup. But today’s focus is on La Liga, and what remains to be decided. So let’s take a look at what’s what.
Only Billy Gimore’s Real Betis can prevent Boom Shakalka’s Deportivo from taking the title. Deportivo have a 6 point lead, but Betis won the H2H. If they can match Betis, they will be crowned champions this week. Should they fall to Malaga (Ajay) and Betis can overcome Real Zaragoza then the title would be decided on the final Gameweek where Depor would need simply to match Betis’ result to claim the title. Should they suffer a 2nd shock to Real Sociedad then a victory for Betis over Levante would see Betis take the title
Deportivo are already assured of a Champions League spot. The final 3 places will come from 3 of Betis (Billy Gimore) Malaga (Ajay) Sevilla (Chris White) Real Madrid (Demi) and Granada (Green Windmill). A win for Betis this week assures their qualification, and even a point may be enough depending on other results. Sevilla and Malaga know 6 points guarantees progress, but any slip ups could see Real or Granada sneak in. The remaining 2 will have to settle for the EUROPA.
Levante (Maximerised) are already relegated, so it’s farewell to Maximerised for this season. Getafe under Declan McCarthy look doomed as they sit 5 points adrift, anything other than 2 wins will see them drop, and even that may not be enough. Lose this weekend v Rayo Vallecano (Hillbilly Pete) and Getafe are down. That leaves 2 teams fighting to be in that precious 4th from bottom spot. Roscola’s Valladolid currenty sit in the relegation zone, but are just 2 from safety. The real shock is that, hovering just above him, is FFS UEFA’s own JK, whose Athletico Madrid side have, after a promising start, plummeted down the table in a manner similar to that of Blackpool or Hull. A win for Athleti over Mallorca and a defeat for Valladolid to Celta Vigo (BonZ) would see Valladolid relegated. Anything else and it goes to the final day where Athletic face Zaragoza and Valladolid face Mallorca. One major advantage for Roscola is his side’s H2H victory over JK meaning if he can get to parity he will survive. JK knows 2 wins ensures safety.
Celta Vigo v Valladolid
Deportivo v Malaga
Real Vallecano v Getafe
Mallorca v Athletico Madrid
Real Zaragoza v Real Betis
