Final Schedule of Group IV in 2nd RFEF: Only Seven Rounds Left

The regular season of the 2nd RFEF is nearing its end with only seven rounds left. Marbella FC is one of the teams in Group IV that is aiming for the top. The team faces a challenging schedule, where they will compete against four direct rivals for the playoff promotion.

Playoff Chances: Top Eight Teams in the Lead

While the top eight teams have the highest chances of entering the playoffs, only the bottom team, Cartagena B, is mathematically ruled out. The competition this season in Group IV of the 2nd RFEF has been marked by parity. This is Marbella FC’s first season in this category since its inception, and it’s surprising that even the second-to-last team still has a mathematical chance of making it to the playoffs.

Playoff Spots: Five Places Up for Grabs

Setting aside these nearly impossible calculations, it seems clear that the five spots for the playoff promotion, along with the leadership position that allows direct promotion, will be contested among the top eight teams. Therefore, the schedule for the next seven rounds is expected to be incredibly exciting with up to 12 direct duels between top-zone rivals.

Key Matches: Determining the Playoff Contenders

These twelve matches will be crucial in determining who will compete for the promotion and which teams will be left out. Marbella FC, currently ranked third in Group IV, has one of the toughest schedules among the eight contenders. They will have to face four direct rivals for the playoff: Betis Deportivo, Sevilla Atlético, Yeclano, and Águilas.

Direct Rivalries: Teams to Watch

Two other teams, Betis Deportivo and Águilas, will also face four direct rivals. On the other hand, Yeclano and Orihuela only have two direct matches. Sevilla Deportivo, Estepona, and Balompédica Linense will have to play three of their matches against some of the top eight teams.

Exciting Season Finale: Playoff Spot at Stake

An exciting season finale is expected, with a playoff spot up for grabs. With eight clear contenders and a couple of wild cards, a few consecutive good results could bring La Unión or UCAM into the fight. In Group IV, with 21 points still up for grabs, no team can claim a guaranteed playoff spot.

Current Standings: Sevilla Atlético in the Lead

Sevilla Atlético is leading with 54 points, but only 13 points ahead of the sixth-ranked team. The final stretch of the 2nd RFEF competition is wide open with many uncertainties yet to be resolved. Marbella FC is aiming to make history in its debut season in the category.
