CD Leganés and Real Valladolid currently occupy the two automatic promotion spots, tied on 67 points, but the fact that the teams who finish third to sixth enter the playoffs means that every club in the top half of the table can still dream of promotion. For example, 11th-placed Racing de Ferrol is only four points behind sixth-placed Real Racing Club de Santander.

Here’s a look at the situation of every team inside the top half of the LALIGA HYPERMOTION table, outlining just how realistic their promotion aims are.

CD Leganés (1st, 67 points)

Since Matchday 12, CD Leganés have been leaders of LALIGA HYPERMOTION, however, their position at the top is being challenged. A run of five draws in a row from the end of March to the end of April saw their lead cut. But, if they can hold on and finish inside the top two, there will be celebrations at the Estadio Butarque at the end of the season.

Remaining fixtures: Albacete Balompié (A), Real Sporting de Gijón (H), Racing de Ferrol (A), Elche CF (H)

Real Valladolid (2nd, 67 points)

As one of the teams who just got relegated last summer, Real Valladolid were always going to be one of the favorites for promotion. And, they’re close to achieving this objective, thanks to a late-season surge. With five wins from their past five matches, they’re rising up the table at the right time.

Remaining fixtures: RCD Espanyol (H), AD Alcorcón (A), Villarreal B (H), CD Tenerife (A)

SD Eibar (3rd, 64 points)

After coming ever so close to promotion in each of the past two seasons, SD Eibar endured a terrible start to this campaign under new coach Joseba Etxeberria. However, the Basque tactician got the team going in the right direction and they have spent a lot of the second half of the season inside the promotion places. Los Armeros have a tough fixture list to close out the season, though, so they’ll have to be at their best.

Remaining fixtures: Levante UD (A), FC Cartagena (H), Real Sporting de Gijón (A), Real Oviedo (H)

RCD Espanyol (4th, 61 points)

This is just the sixth season that RCD Espanyol has spent outside of Spain’s top division in club history, so they expect to make an immediate return to LALIGA EA SPORTS. They are giving their best effort to achieve this objective, especially Martin Braithwaite, who is the division’s top scorer with 20 goals.

Remaining fixtures: Real Valladolid (A), Real Oviedo (H), SD Amorebieta (A), FC Cartagena (H)

Real Oviedo (5th, 58 points)

Real Oviedo are one of three teams currently level on 58 points, and they’d enter the playoffs as it stands. With automatic promotion a little too out of reach, staying in the top six and playing the lottery of the playoffs is the main goal for the Asturian institution over the remaining weeks.

Remaining fixtures: Real Zaragoza (H), RCD Espanyol (A), FC Andorra (H), SD Eibar (A)

Real Racing Club de Santander (6th, 58 points)

The final playoff spot is currently held by Real Racing Club de Santander, but that could change in an instant, given that it’s so tight at this part of the standings. The good news for them is that their final four fixtures are all against bottom-half teams. As the second-top scorers in the entire division, the northern club certainly has the firepower to make it to the playoffs and to give any opponent a scare.

Remaining fixtures: CD Mirandés (H), SD Huesca (A), Real Zaragoza (H), Villarreal B (A)

Elche CF (7th, 58 points)

After their frustrating season in LALIGA EA SPORTS last year, Elche CF also struggled in LALIGA HYPERMOTION at the beginning of this term. Yet, they’ve turned things around in the second half of the campaign and are very much in the mix for a playoff ticket.

Remaining fixtures: SD Huesca (H), CD Mirandés (A), CD Eldense (H), CD Leganés (A)

Burgos CF (8th, 57 points)

Burgos CF haven’t been in Spain’s first division since 1980, but they’re currently just one point away from the playoff positions, so their fans can dream of a miraculous return, especially given that Los Blanquinegros have some very winnable fixtures remaining on their schedule.

Remaining fixtures: CD Eldense (H), FC Andorra (A), CD Tenerife (H), AD Alcorcón (A)

Real Sporting de Gijón (9th, 56 points)

As one of Spain’s most historic clubs, Real Sporting de Gijón fans feel that they’ve been away from LALIGA EA SPORTS for too long, having last played at that level in 2017. This season, they’ve put together a consistent campaign and have been inside the top 10 since Matchday 4. What matters, though, is making sure they reach the top six by the end of Matchday 42.

Remaining fixtures: FC Andorra (H), CD Leganés (A), SD Eibar (H), CD Eldense (A)

Levante UD (10th, 55 points)

After the heartbreak of their stoppage time playoff final loss to Deportivo Alavés last June, Levante UD hopes to achieve promotion back to LALIGA EA SPORTS this season. But, their recent form hasn’t been particularly encouraging, with just three wins from their past nine matches. That leaves them on the outside looking in at this stage.

Remaining fixtures: SD Eibar (H), CD Eldense (A), AD Alcorcón (H), SD Huesca (A)

Racing de Ferrol (11th, 54 points)

Racing de Ferrol only just achieved promotion into LALIGA HYPERMOTION last summer, but they’ve kept up the momentum and are inside the top half of the table at this late stage of the season, only four points away from the playoff positions. It would certainly be a shock if they can make it back-to-back promotions, but that has been done in the past, most recently with RCD Mallorca in 2019. With that in mind, everyone at the Galician Club can keep dreaming.

Remaining fixtures: AD Alcorcón (H), Real Zaragoza (A), CD Leganés (H), FC Andorra (A)
