A passionate Saturday in the Liga Adelante

Saturday on matchday sixteen includes four enticing clashes in which there is plenty at stake.

CD Numancia - UE Llagostera
The side from Soria come into the match in eleventh place and on a run of six matches undefeated. Ripa and Regalón will not play for the home side. For the visitors, Robert Simón, Nico Ratti, Enric Pi, Perea, Ruymán, Juanjo and Óscar Rico will not be in the squad.

CD Mirandés - At. Osasuna
It promises to be an entertaining game in the Anduva when Mirandés take on Osasuna. The men managed by Carlos Terrazas picked up some good results in November and will therefore be fighting to continue their good form. The Rojillos, however, have not won in the last 30 days of the competition and will be bidding for their first victory on the road El Sadar.
"We cannot take our foot off the gas", said Carlos Terrazas, the Mirandés manager. Osasuna defender Jon Echaide was confident of getting something positive from their visit to Miranda de Ebro: "Anduva is a ground that's conducive to getting points".

UD Las Palmas - CD Leganés
The team managed by Asier Garitano, who are performing well in the Liga Adelante, will test the impressive form of Las Palmas. Three points would provisionally put the islanders at the top and Leganés in the middle of the table.
"We have to be highly motivated if we're to win", stated Paco Herrera on the eve of the game. Garitano, for his part, spoke of his team's confidence: "The most important thing is believing that we can do it".

SD Ponferradina - D. Alavés
Ponferradina come into the game knocking on the door of the Liga Adelante promotion zone and will be hoping to bounce back from their 4-1 loss to R. Zaragoza. The side from El Bierzo will face an Alavés will also be trying to forget their 0-2 defeat to Numancia in the Mendizorroza.
For this clash, Manolo Díaz, the home coach, will have to make do without the injured Samuel Camille, while Alberto López will have to do the same with Rafa García and Jiří Jarošík, who are still recovering from knocks.
