MADRID, 13 May. (EUROPA PRESS) -
Almería is very close to returning to the Santander League after beating Real Sociedad B (0-2) this Friday in the match that opened day 40 in the Second Division, a promotion that could be certified this Saturday depending on the results of Valladolid and even Eibar if the pucelanos draw.
Rubi's men asserted their favoritism against a Sanse who went from more to less and could not stop the quality of the Andalusians. On the only occasion of the first half for Almería, Rodrigo Ely scored with a header after a magnificent cross from Robertone after repelling a corner.
The goal gave wings to the leader of the SmartBank League, who came out determined to sentence the stake in the first minutes of the second half. At 12 minutes after the restart, Andoni Zubiaurre knocked down Umar Sadiq in a one-on-one that was a penalty. Portillo launched it and ran into the 'txuri urdin' goalkeeper, who made a worthwhile save with his legs.
However, Almería was not discouraged and soon found that second goal that they sought so much in the final act. This time it was a robbery by Sadiq, with a great maneuver inside the area, which ended up clinching Lazo, who had barely been on the pitch for two minutes. In this way, the rojiblanco team is practically a First team seven seasons later.
Promotion could come this Saturday if Valladolid loses to Ponferradina or even if Pucela draws at home and Eibar doesn't add up on their visit to Butarque. Real Sociedad B, meanwhile, will continue to be two points from safety while awaiting the results of Málaga and Sporting, who play against Tenerife and Girona, respectively.
