Reds have managed to stay alive, as they pull themselves out of the relegation zone. Aritz Garai has set his side to play a more attacking style of football. The forward line has also contributed to their success, as they scored 30 goals this season.

Numantinos is one of the weakest defensive units in the league, as they concede 1.3 goals per game. The opposition always finds space in between the midfield and the defensive line and utilize it to their advantage to score goals.

La Union has been performing similar to their opponents, as they are almost safe from relegation. They are a well built defensive unit, as they conceded less than 1 goal per game. They always use their physical strength to defend set pieces and break the opposition’s rhythm.
