Granada, who have counted their first three games of the championship by victories, are pursuing their fourth consecutive victory against the recently promoted Andorra, while Leganés and Racing Club de Santander, still without points, seek to release their winning record in two difficult duels against to Eibar and Tenerife, respectively.
Granada is proving intractable at the start of the season. Three wins, seven goals for and none against reflects the good form of the team led by Aitor Karanka, who this week visits Andorra, which has lost two in a row after its debut with a victory away from home in Oviedo.
Behind Granada are UD Las Palmas, Eibar, Alavés and Albacete with seven points and without defeat in three games.
Of these four teams, two, Alavés and UD Las Palmas, will meet in Mendizorroza in a direct duel between two historical teams that will seek to follow in the footsteps of Granada and that at this start are showing the good level they have to fight for promotion.
The same thing happens to Eibar, who hope to surprise a Leganés in a depressed state after chaining three consecutive defeats that have unleashed the nerves of the Blue and White fans.
Albacete, after its promotion, seems adapted to the category with its new sports project and this day it will visit La Rosaleda to face a Malaga that, after beating Mirandés last week, seems to regain optimism after a bad start that doubts.
Forced to score so as not to continue seeing their zero points box is Racing, who takes the plane to travel to Tenerife, where the Canarian team awaits, which is not doing much better after adding only one point in three days.
Another island team, Ibiza, is also in decline with only one point, the same as its rival this day, Huesca, which has two consecutive defeats and needs to react to get to the top of the table, its true objective.
Sporting de Gijón, after two draws and a victory, has a short trip this day. Ponferradina, who has six points and hopes to make a jump in the standings this week, will face Ponferradina in El Toralín.
Mirandés, who have not yet celebrated any victory this season and have only added one point in three games, will visit Villarreal B who are leaving good feelings at this start and, with four points, are adapting well to the silver category with a very young team.
Burgos, without losing after a victory and two draws, seeks to continue its progression against a Cartagena that arrives at the meeting with high morale after consecutively beating Huesca and Zaragoza.
Precisely the hand team, with two points out of a possible nine, do not want to measure themselves again in the negative dynamics of recent years and need to react. He hopes to do so against Lugo, who are showing themselves to be very solid at this start.
The day is completed with the duel between two historical, Real Oviedo and Levante. The Asturian team, after two wins in a row against Leganés and Racing, hopes to add the third, while the Valencian side, who won last week against Tenerife, will look for the second victory of the course.
